American Idol Results: Chikezie Eze voted off Wednesday

American Idol Results: Chikezie Eze voted off Wednesday Tough break for one of the more extravagant performers on "American Idol" after last night's result were announced - Chikezie Eze was voted off the show. The theme of this week's American Idol was dubbed "The year they were born" and the 22-year-old Californian sang Luther Vandross' "If Only for One Night", which yielded remarks in the spirit of "you sang it well, but cheesy" from the judges. "Don't underestimate how smart the public are who watch this show," Simon Cowell told Chikezie and it was hardly a surprise that Chikezie Eze was eliminated from American Idol - he was one of the big underdogs to win the popular reality competition, listed with odds 35/1 for the crown at the online sportsbook BodogLife. A couple of weeks ago Chikezie landed in the bottom three and although survived, it was doomed since, hence the long odds to win the competition.

 More of a surprise was the bottom three line-up. Along with the eliminated Chikezie Eze, Syesha Mercado (12/1 to win American Idol) and Jason Castro (15/1) made the other two bottom-shelf singers this week. Significant improvement in the votes received big underdog Kristy Lee Cook (100/1 to win American Idol) and Ramiele Malubay (25/1), while David Archuleta remains the top favorite to win the seventh season of American Idol, listed with odds 11/10 at BodogLife. After the last night's American Idol elimination results, now we are down to only 9 contenders with the winner of the Idol coming up in May.

 Wednesday's show also featured a performance by "American Idol" also-ran Kimberley Locke, who placed third behind Ruben Studdard and Clay Aiken in the second season of the show. And finally - current finalist Carly Smithson (odds 12/1) denied on air the rumors that she is pregnant. "Apparently I'm pregnant, but I'm not. No, I'm not," Smithson delivered the message to the media reports of her alleged pregnancy.
