He sang his final song in front of the judges, for a shot at being saved.
But, that last song didn't wow them enough to use their one save this season.
After the show, Jolley said the judges scathing review of his Wednesday night performance contributed to his lack of votes.
"I feel like the judges comments did influence the voters because they are iconic people. Everyone looks up to them and respects their opinion. So I feel like it did have a say so in the voters, but I'm okay with that because the voters that didn't vote for me - I'm going to win over later when I have a career," Jolley told Fox. "Honestly, I think I did connect. I think sometimes when things are put into people's heads, they tend to listen to that. But I feel like if they had naturally listened to the lyrics and wording of my songs, I wouldn't be here today."
However the judges say Jolley simply wasn't a better singer than the rest of the group.
One of the surprises of the night was Amber Holcomb ending up in the bottom three, which the judging panel didn't agree with.
Now it's down to eight contestants, and the pressure is building.
