idol8With last night’s elimination of powerhouse singers Olivia Rox and Gianna Isabella, there’s only eight remaining singers left to take the final American Idol crown. It’s been a solid season thus far, and the remaining contestants’ varying musical influences should ensure a healthy share of unique performances.

“This show has always been about diversity in styles,” said Idol judge Keith Urban. “We’ve certainly got that represented even as of now with Top 8. So it will be interesting to see who doesn’t make it from here.”

Winning American Idol is just an aspect on why this experience is beneficial for singers. Click on the media bar below to hear Keith Urban explain why American Idol is the perfect training ground for these aspiring artists.

What did you think of last night’s eliminations? Did an all too mature song choice (“If I Ain’t Got You”) lead to Gianna Isabella’s exit, and were you surprised that early favorite Olivia Rox was also sent home? Feel free to comment below!
