Shocking live 'Idol' elimination sends home daughter of a famous rock star

The top 14 took the stage on American Idol Sunday night as viewers at home voted for their favorite contestants in real time and, at the end of the show, host Ryan Seacrest revealed the three contestants who would be sent home.

While it wasn't totally surprising who made it into the top 11, the one shocking result was the elimination of Ava Maybee, daughter of Red Hot Chili Peppers drummer Chad Smith.

Ava stunned the judges with her red hot audition at the beginning of the season but, unfortunately, America didn't feel the same way following her live performance Sunday. Still, Ava's elimination was a surprise to some upset fans especially since, earlier in the show, Katy Perry shared, "The whole room was vibrating. No joke, this morning, I was swimming in a pool, and my friend goes, 'You know that girl Ava?' He's, like, a really cool artist. 'People are texting me that I should vote for her.' I'm like, 'Yeah, you got to vote for her.' Ava, people are talking about you." However, Ava didn't leave the competition alone. Also saying goodbye was Allegra Miles and Dan Marshall, which leaves us with 11 contestants who will compete Monday in the “Judges’ Song Contest."
