Majesty Rose

Majesty Rose is now in the Top 11 on "American Idol."

She learned the status Thursday on the live results show.

The announcement came at the midway point of the hour-long show.

Majesty was in the second group of four called center stage, as host Ryan Seacrest revealed the "bottom three" vote-getters in the singing competition.

This week the three stools were occupied by contestants Emily Piriz, Jena Irene and M.K. Nobilette.

As Majesty and three other singers moved into position, she covered her face with both hands. When Seacrest called her name, she maintained the position, even after he said the words, "You are safe!"

She appeared relieved, as she scurried off to reunite with other contestants also continuing in the competition.

Seacrest asked if she was all right and she giggled an affirmative response.

Fellow North Carolinian Caleb Johnson, from Asheville, also remains in the contest..
