Either Paige Miles or Tim Urban is about to go home on "American Idol" -- and to nobody's surprise it's Paige, whom the judges accused of quitting.

Simon tells her no matter how well you sing now, we're not going to save you. Wow, weird. What's the point of that? How'd you like to hear that right before you have to sing?!

Paige is one of the great what-ifs of "American Idol" this season -- she had legit star talent, but definitely lost her way.

Right now, though, you could say the same about nearly every other "American Idol" contestant. Just about all of them are totally underperforming and playing it safe (or dumb), leaving us apathetic each week.

Heck, the only people who deserve to be in the final three right now are Siobhan Magnus, Crystal Bowersox and Aaron Kelly.

The others really need to get it together or else this is going down as one of the worst "American Idol" seasons ever.

Really, right now, Didi Benami, Casey James and Andrew Garcia should've all been cut tonight as well. They've been pretty horrible.

Maybe Usher can light a fire under them next week?
