The 'American Idol' Season 12 Top 9 -- FOX

"American Idol" has eliminated another contestant.

(SPOILER! This story contains the results of Thursday's "Idol.")

Season 12 singer Paul Jolley gave his best, performing Heart's "Alone" for the "judges' save," but the panel opted not to keep the singer in the competition.

"Unfortunately... it's not unanimous, no," judge Randy Jackson said, when show host Ryan Seacrest asked him to share the group's decision.

"Good luck baby," Randy added.

Things weren't so bad for Paul. Earlier in the broadcast, Ryan revealed that Dresden, Tenn., had honored their star with a day in his honor -- "Paul Jolley Day."

"I got my own day," Paul said as he shrugged off his elimination. "I think I'm [doing] pretty great."

Paul's exit served as a close call for Devin Velez and Amber Holcomb, who had joined him in the Bottom 3.

"American Idol" continues next week on Wednesday, on FOX.
