Nineteen-year-old Jeremy Rosado, a wild card finalist who made it to the top 13 (thanks in large part to Jennifer Lopez’s support), was sent home tonight on American Idol.  This week’s elimination came with a twist, as the guy and girl singer who received the lowest votes faced the judges’ firing line.  Elise Testone, who delivered an uninspired performance of “I’m Your Baby Tonight” on Wednesday, received a stay of execution from the judges.  Rosado, easily this season’s most amiable contestant, remained classy to the end.

“I’ve always dreamed of being on American Idol,” says Rosado.  “A lot of people say that, but not a lot of people can say their dream came true.  Mine did.  I know that elimination night (for me) was hard.  This is my dream.  I got to live the American Idol life. This is just the beginning for me.  I”m excited.”
