Roberts was eliminated tonight on XIII, after he received the fewest votes. From Fayette, AL, the 22-year-old sang “Muckalee Creek Water” on last night’s performance show.
Next week, on Wednesday, April 23 (8:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), the Top Six – C.J. Harris, Jena Irene, Caleb Johnson, Jessica Meuse, Alex Preston and Sam Woolf – get a little bit country and a little bit rock and roll as they perform two songs each – one country and one rock!
With the competition more intense than ever, tune in Thursday, April 24 (9:00-9:30 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed), to find out who survives next week’s elimination.
