The news came as a big surprise for everyone who has been supporting the cute talent since the beginning of Vietnam Idol. Phuong Ly, younger sister of the famous Sao Mai Diem Hen finalist Phuong Linh, had to bid her early farewells to Vietnam Idol along with three other contestants after their Studio 3 sessions last Tuesday.

Here are the results of the Studio 3 show:

Judges’ choice

Nguyễn Thị Phương Anh (22) (HCMC)

Bùi Nguyễn Trung Quân (21) (HCMC)

Audience’s choice

Bùi Thị Bích Phương (21) (Hà Nội)

Văn Mai Hương (16) (Hà Nội)

Đinh Vương Linh (26) (HCMC)

Trần Lân Nhã (24) (HCMC)

The 4 eliminated contestants:

Hà Minh Nguyệt (21) (Hà Nội)

Trần Phương Ly (20) (Hà Nội)

Nguyễn Văn Viết (24) (Hà Nội)

Nguyễn Văn Thắng (24) (HCMC)

On a side note, I hope she will continue to pursue a music career. I’m not sure who else to support for this season of Vietnam Idol now that Phuong Ly’s out as they all seem just meh to me. Et toi? Who do you think will become the next Vietnam Idol?
