24 year-old Laci Brown was the first of the top 12 to be sent home on American Idol, after receiving the least amount of votes and failing to win the judges save, as well as allowing fellow bottom two/roommate Paige Miles to remain in the competition. The save is used in order to give a chance for the person with the lowest votes to be brought back by the judges. Last year the hopeful Idol was asked to redo the song that placed them in the bottom two. This year they were allowed to choose from any song that was performed this season. Brown chose “The Story” by Brandi Carlile, which has been considered one of her best, however it was not enough to persuade the panel.
