LOS ANGELES — It wasn't a laughing matter for Heejun Han on "American Idol."
The goofy 22-year-old nonprofit organizer from New York that found his way back into the judges' good graces after weeks of silly on-stage antics, was eliminated from the Fox singing contest. After receiving the fewest viewer votes, Han couldn't convince the judges to save him Thursday by reprising his serious take on Leon Russell's "A Song for You."
"Idol" judge Steven Tyler told Han that he "knew this was coming."
Han was joined in the bottom three by 18-year-old finalists Skylar Laine of Brandon, Mississippi, and Hollie Cavanaugh of McKinney, Texas.
The eight singers remaining in the competition will take on songs from the 1980s next week.
