Idol Drops Teen Boys, Model Girls

The bloodletting has begun on American Idol .

Randy Jackson may have repeatedly remarked this week that the pleasantly precocious teenage contestants are the forces to be reckoned with in season seven, but 17-year-old Garrett "Leif Garrett" Haley was the first to be sent home on Thursday's results show, the first live send-off of the year.

The Ohio native with the Peter Frampton 'do underwhelmed the judges—and America, apparently—with a slowed-down version of "Breaking Up Is Hard to Do," the usually punchy Neil Sedaka tune, that made Simon Cowell question whether the fair-skinned Haley had been shut up in his bedroom for the past month.
