Michael Sarver gets voted out in American Idol season 8.

After a record-setting 36 million votes were casts, the 27 year-old oil rig worker from Texas gets voted out of American Idol season 8. He got the fewest number of votes and the judges opted not to save him and use their one-per-season veto power.

Sarver performed his rendition of the Temptations song “Ain’t Too Proud to Beg” during the show’s Motown-themed performance night and the judges were unanimous in giving him thumbs down. He was told that “it was a tough performance” and “it wasn’t good enough.”

But Sarver was even gracious in his elimination. He, anyway, is going on the American Idol tour this summer as being part of the Top 10.

Surprisingly, Scott MacIntyre and Matt Giraud joined Sarver in the all-male bottom 3. The remaining finalists include Adam Lambert, Anoop Desai, Danny Gokey, Kris Allen, Lil Rounds, Megan Joy and Allison Iraheta.

Ruben Studdard, the winner of the show's second season made an appearance in the show and sang his new single “Together.”

Smokey Robinson, a singer and songwriter dubbed the "King of Motown," mentored the Motown show. He also performed a duet of "You're The One For Me" with Joss Stone. Stevie Wonder also sang a medley of Motown hits.
