LAist only made it eight minutes into last night's American Idol results show before hitting the remote control. We just couldn't watch anymore. Watching Ryan Seacrest interview tourists at The Grove for the umpteenth time to get their opinions on the prior night's show was just too painful. Plus, it was Bon Jovi night -- all the more reason to change the channel.

So we'll cut to the chase: Phil Stacey (the bald guy) and Chris Richardson (a/k/a Justin Timberlake) were axed from the show. See ya, boys!

America, your final four American Idol contestants are: Melinda Doolittle, LaKisha Jones, Jordin Sparks and Blake Lewis.
