26. Sundance's poor choice of song is what kicked him off.
"Jeremy" is a good song but it is not right for American Idol. It doesn't showcase vocal talents, it doesn't rhyme, and it doesn't have a traditionally catchy chorus. The average American Idol viewer is just going to tune it out. He should have known better.

That being said, I don't think he would have went very far in the finals anyway.
