Jasper's Michael Sarver booted off American Idol

HOLLYWOOD, CA (KTRE) - East Texas native Michael Sarver did not earn enough votes to make it to the next round on American Idol.

Thursday night, it was revealed that Sarver would not make the cut. Sarver was given a second chance to win the support of the judges to stay on the show. All four of the American Idol judges would have to vote "yes" to allow Sarver a second chance, but Simon Cowell's "no" vote killed the possibility.

Wednesday night, Sarver sang "Ain't too proud to beg." There was word that he had been sick this week, but the judges didn't take it easy on him. They were less than flattering.
