As the final season of American Idol gets closer to an end, a singer with Vineyard ties remains in the singing competition.

Sonika Vaid, 20, was once again spared from elimination by the judges Thursday night and continues on the show as one of the final five competitors.

Six singers remained in the competition Thursday, and during the live show four contestants were told they were moving on as determined by audience votes. One of the bottom two contestants as determined by voters was chosen to move on by the judges.

Ms. Vaid and fellow contestant Tristan McIntosh came in at the bottom of audience voting. Both singers then performed prepared songs, with Ms. Vaid belting Demi Lovato’s version of Let It Go from the movie Frozen. The judges praised Ms. Vaid’s performance and awarded her the last judges’ save of the season, granting her a spot in the final five and another week on the competition.

Ms. Vaid, a student, has been identified on the show as a Vineyard resident. According to assessors records her parents own a home in Vineyard Haven; Ms. Vaid is a graduate of Weston High School. On Thursday American Idol showed clips of fans and friends wishing the finalists well. Ms. Vaid’s clips featured family and friends gathered in Brookline and at the Weston Country Club cheering her on.

The next episode of American Idol airs Thursday night at 8 p.m. on Fox.
