Say goodbye, Malubay. Ramiele Malubay - the diminutive singer with the big voice - was booted from "American Idol" as the show trimmed the competition to eight hopefuls.
Malubay, 20, of Miramar, Fla., crooned Dolly Parton's "Do I Ever Cross Your Mind" on Tuesday night's show. Paula Abdul enjoyed the performance. Randy Jackson thought it was OK. But Simon Cowell - not so much.
"Overall I thought it was forgettable, and I think it was very reminiscent of something you would see and hear on a cruise ship," the acerbic judge told Malubay.
Brooke White and Kristy Lee Cook were the other lowest vote-getters.
Fan favorite David Cook was back for the results show after having heart palpitations and high blood pressure near the end of Tuesday's sing-off.
The 25-year-old Missouri native - who was subsequently treated at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center - told host Ryan Seacrest that the "whole thing kind of got blown out of proportion. ... I have high blood pressure, and it spiked."
Wednesday's show also featured performances by celebrity mentor Parton and The Clark Brothers.
