While Cormier, 20, sang for her life to make it into the top 10, she fell short after her rendition of “The Middle” by Jimmy Eat World. Though the judges praised her performance, the New Hampshire native was sent home following her second song, “Dust in the Wind” by Kansas.

“One of the most important things to do on this show is to come out here and elevate the game,” Luke Bryan told Evelyn prior to her exit. “Great job, and great energy!”

The TLC alum later added a message of thanks to her followers on Instagram on Tuesday, April 16. “I would love to answer each and every one of you but there are far too many—so I will respond here to a few things that was mentioned over and over again,” she wrote. “1. I feel the judges made the right choice last night. Idol was never for me—I was blessed to be there for as long as I was.”
