LOS ANGELES, March 29 (UPI) -- Heejun Han was booted from "American Idol" in Los Angeles Thursday.

Han, a 22-year-old native of South Korea, got the bad news regarding his elimination after singing "A Song For You," a Leon Russell composition that was recorded by Donny Hathaway in 1971.

Judges Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez and L.A. Reid deliberated, and then Tyler told Han: "Heejun, let the record show that you knew this was coming yourself. You saw it come last week. ... Unfortunately, after talking, we're going to have to let you go."

There are eight contestants left on the singing competition show.

The Top 10, including Han, will go on a concert tour this summer.
