Anoop makes the top eight on 'Idol'

Staff WriterApril 1, 2009 

Chapel Hill's Anoop Desai survived another week on "American Idol" Wednesday night and advanced into the competition's elite eight -- although not by much.

Desai was one of the three lowest vote-getters after Tuesday night's show. At the end of Wednesday's cut-down show, it was down to him or Megan Joy on who would have to leave. Joy drew the short straw, so Desai lives to sing another week.

The competition will resume next week.
