'American Idol' season 17: Did Jeremiah Harmon's clapback at haters play a part in his elimination?

The Top 6 contestant was thought by fans to have the talent that would see him go through the competition and win it

As 'American Idol' season 17 nears its end, the contestants are being eliminated with every airing week, and after Sunday's episode just five were left in the fray. On Sunday night, the top 6 contestants were asked to sing songs from 1969's Woodstock Festival and songs that inspired them.

But fans were in for a shock when the votes were tallied after all the performances -- front runner Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon along with Laci Kaye Booth polled the lowest and were set to be eliminated. Though fans didn't vote both Booth and Harmon into the top 4, judges - Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan - decided to use their only save of the season on Booth.
