American Idol said goodbye to Malaya Watson on Thursday night.
The 16-year-old from Southfield, Michigan, was eliminated via the fan vote. After host Ryan Seacrest made the announcement, she reprised her performance of the Dreamgirls song "I Am Changing," which she previously performed on the show last month.
Malaya had fallen into the bottom two with C.J. Harris . Keep in mind that the judges -- Jennifer Lopez , Keith Urban and Harry Connick, Jr. -- were unable to keep her around, having used their one "save" last week on Sam Woolf .
The half-hour results show did not feature a musical guest.
The top seven will take the American Idol stage next Wednesday night on Fox.
