Jeremy Rosado Eliminated on 'American Idol'

The judges decided the Greater Brandon resident's performance last night wasn't "Idol" material.


It's the end of an "American Idol" dream for 2009 Durant High School graduate Jeremy Rosado.

Rosado on the March 8 "American Idol" show was visibly saddened to learn judges Steven Tyler, Randy Jackson and Jennifer Lopez had decided he should be eliminated from the competition.

When asked for a response by host Ryan Seacrest, Rosado simply said, "Thanks. It's been awesome."

The decision didn't come as a surprise to viewers. Earlier in the show, judge Steven Tyler said he thought Rosado's performance last night wasn't up to par and that he should be the one voted off tonight's show.

"Jeremy deserves to go," said Tyler.

Reacting to Tyler's comment, Rosado said, "It stinks. I know last night wasn’t my best."

In addition to a less-than-spectacular performance last night, the 19-year-old student at Brandon campus of Hillsborough Community College lacked the votes he needed to continue on in the competition.

"Somebody's got to go," said judge Randy Jackson. "I think the voters got it right."
