NEW YORK: He sang Thatâ€™s All. Very fitting. Ace Young became the latest American Idol casualty in April 19â€™s viewer voting after enduring weeks of speculation that he would soon get the boot.The 25-year-old Denver nativeâ€™s exit narrowed the Idol wannabes to six. The winner will be named on May 25. Judge Simon Cowell said on April 18â€™s programme that Youngâ€™s rendition of the retro standard was â€œcharmingâ€ â€” though his voice was â€œa little nasallyâ€. Host Ryan Seacrest offered encouragement nonetheless. â€œYouâ€™ve got a bright future,â€ he told the crooner, known for his long locks, flashy smile and falsetto. Wednesdayâ€™s elimination show featured a performance by guest coach Rod Stewart, who sang the classic The Way You Look Tonight from the first disc in his popular Great American Songbook series.
Thatâ€™s all for Ace
