After her final performance of Jennifer Hudson's I Am Changing, the judges made a standing ovation, recognizing her immense talent and great potential. Jennifer Lopez is clearly the most affected as she has repeatedly been impressed by Malaya's incredible voice.

We are all sad that Malaya is voted off. If there's any consolation, well she's only 16 and there's tons of other opportunities that awaits her.

What do you think of Malaya Watson's moving elimination?
