Hollie Cavanagh unjustly falls to bottom two on 'American Idol'

Hollie Cavanagh or Phillip Phillips are about to go into the bottom two on "American Idol" -- it'll be Cavanagh, even though tween favorite Phillips was clearly the weakest singer last night.

Mentor Jimmy Iovine says flat out sometimes in life you need to fail to succeed, and calls out Phillips for "coasting."

Joshua Ledet is already safe tonight; and the person joining him in safety is... Phillips. So Cavanagh is in the bottom two. Too bad she's at real risk of going home, just as she was starting to peak.
