LOS ANGELES (AP) “American Idol” finalists Lil Rounds and Anoop Desai aren’t closer to becoming household names.

Both singers were dismissed Wednesday after it was revealed they received the least number of viewer votes on the popular Fox singing competition.

The third lowest vote-getter after this week’s disco-themed performances was Allison Iraheta.

For the past several weeks, the judges have not been favorable to Miss Rounds, the 24-year-old mother of three from Memphis, or Anoop Desai, the 22-year-old college student from Chapel Hill, N.C.

While the panel seemed to prefer Mr. Desai’s rendition of Donna Summers’ “Dim All the Lights,” Judge Simon Cowell called Rounds’ performance of Chaka Khan’s “I’m Every Woman” a “mess.”
