Gina Glocksen Eliminated from 'American Idol' Singing Competition


Gina Glocksen got her walking papers on April 4, as fans voted her off American Idol.

The 22-year-old's exit narrows the field of hopefuls to eight. A dental assistant from the midwestern state of Illinois, Gina presented herself as the most rock-oriented of the female contestants. Her final song on the contest, however, was "Smile," co-written by movie comic Charlie Chaplin.

Idol's most visible contestant, Sanjaya Malakar, didn't receive the highest number of votes, but survived to compete in next week's Latin-themed segment.

Now in its sixth season, American Idol is the highest-ranked program on U.S. television, drawing between 26 and 37 million viewers per telecast.
