And the first finalist eliminated from American Idol in Season 13 is: Kristen O'Connor.

The 24-year-old from Florida sang Kelly Clarkson's "Beautiful Disaster" on Wednesday night and got generally positive reviews from the judges.

But come Thursday, she found herself facing elimination along with M.K. Nobilette and Malaya Watson.

Kristen sang "Turning Tables" for her save-me song and finished with a flourish. But it wasn't enough to convince the judges to use their only save of the season.

Check idolchatteryd.com tomorrow for an exit interview with Kristen and more on Season 13.
