Falling to the bottom three along with Hollie Cavanagh and Skylar Laine, the 28-year-old teacher from Charleston, South Carolina bids goodbye with Led Zeppelin's 'Whole Lotta Love'.

Another contestant has reached the end of her "" journey. After two weeks of shocking elimination episodes, the FOX singing competition narrowed down the remaining Top 6 to five on Thursday, April 26 night by revealing that Elise Testone was the one who has to bid goodbye this week.

Being the oldest of season 11's finalists, the 28-year-old teacher from Charleston, South Carolina had survived several trips to the bottom three before, but received the fewest viewer votes out of the reported 58 million votes cast following Wednesday's performance episode. She was joined by Hollie Cavanagh and Skylar Laine.

Testone received mixed reviews from the judges for her performance of 's "I Want It All" and 's "Bold as Love". While praised her rendition of "I Want It All", told her that her second choice of song "wasn't the right song for this time in the competition." In the end, she exited the show singing 's "Whole Lotta Love".

The Thursday show was kicked off with a performance of "Somebody to Love" by an official Queen tribute band dubbed The Queen Extravaganza. It also saw season 10 contestant Stefano Langone delivering his debut single "I'm on a Roll", and presenting a military-themed "Part of Me".
