Lazaro – who had trouble singing in the correct key during Wednesday's performance — admitted he's been hoping to go home for a while.

"I just want to go home and be normal and not have to do something's like a day or so, and to hang out with the people I love because the show was taking a toll on me," he said. "I kind of miss home a lot… Like I just cried, like, every day."

The 22-year-old doesn't think he's the only one who wants to go home.

"At the beginning of the show, I was like, ‘Yes! I'm going to be on ‘American Idol!' and then by last week, we're like, ‘We want to go home,'" he said. "So, I think that with every one of those women [the five finalists] there's a small part that wants to go home. No matter what they say, they want to go home at some point."
