Memphis's Alexis Grace eliminated from Idol

MEMPHIS, TN (KAIT) - Memphis native Alexis Grace won't be touring with American Idol contestants, as she becomes the latest elminated from the show.

Grace, along with Lil Rounds, were the only two contestants from the same city this year, which in the end may have hurt Alexis's chances by splitting her home support.

Grace sang Jolene by Dolly Parton during Grand Ole Opry week and while the judges vocally contemplated using their "single-season save" to keep her on the show, they unanimously decided against it.

Kris Allen and Lil Rounds remain the only two contestants in the 8th season of American Idol with area ties. Allen is from Conway, while Rounds, as previously mentioned, hails from Memphis.
