OK, I'm going to cut to the chase: Paige "Against All Odds" Miles did not beat the odds on Wednesday's results show. She got the fewest votes, and so she was the "American Idol" contestant who went home, narrowly missing a spot in the top 10 and her one big shot to go on this summer's American Idols Live Tour.
Paige didn't even get a chance to "sing for her life" in hopes of earning the much-ballyhooed Judges' Save. Simon Cowell flat out told her, before Ryan Seacrest even handed her a microphone: "Regardless of your singing, we're not going to save you. You're going home tonight; we're not going to give you false hope. This isn't working." Paige subsequently blamed her troubles on her recent bout of laryngitis, but considering that she sang better last week, when her laryngitis was at its worst--and Aaron Kelly sang well despite his tonsillitis this week--such an excuse fell on deaf ears.
