Whitney Houston song can't save Erika Van Pelt from elimination on 'American Idol'

Heejun Han, Erika Van Pelt or Deandre Brackensick are about to go home on "American Idol." I think it'll be Brackensick.

Oh, I guess I'm totally wrong; he's sent back to safety.

Wow, really hope it's Van Pelt, Han's my fave. And it's indeed her. I don't think judges are going to use their save here, they're holding it in case Elise Testone can't maintain her newfound popularity.

So it's likely Van Pelt's last song, doing Whitney Houston's "I Believe in You and Me."

Not a bad rendition, but also nothing special. Randy Jackson says they're not using the save.

Still crazy how different she looks after Tommy Hilfiger's makeover last night. I liked her. The fact she'd chop and dye her hair the day before going on stage to sing is notable, plus she always had such a positive attitude, seemed to enjoy just being on the show.
