It's down to the final 5 on American Idol.  Country girl Skylar Laine escaped elimination after being in the bottom three.  Ryan Seacrest sent her to safety, leaving as predicted, Hollie Cavanagh and Elise Testone in danger of leaving.

In  the end it was Elise who's Idol journey was over.  But she won't be going far.  The Idol Top 10 will hit the road for a tour and they'll make four stops in New York.

8/15 Rochester
8/22 Uniondale
8/30 Albany
9/4 Syracuse, NY War Memorial at OnCenter

Before Ryan gave Elise the bad news, The Queen Extravaganza was joined by Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor for a performance of 'Somebody to Love.'

The Top 5 return to the stage next Wednesday night at 8 on FOX.
