How many times did Kris Allen end up in the bottom three last season on American idol?
He was in the bottom 3 only once. During rock week (the Top 5), Kris was in the bottom 3 and Adam Lambert and Matt Giraud were in the bottom 2.
Answer Kelly Pickler and Taylor Hicks have not been in the bottom three as yet. There were 82 contestants on American Idol from season 1 through 7 because season 1 had only ten contestants. While some may be less talented I don't believe a person could fairly say any were untalented. Additionally many contestants were eliminated before voting and fall into a different category.
