Predicting who would be be voted off on American Idol 2012 this week on Thursday seemed rather obvious after last week’s voting results and this week’s performrances. However, I can honestly say my American Idol predictions this week were totally off the mark about who would end up in the bottom three.


Pleast stop here if you do not want to who got voted off American Idol 2012 in the elimination results show Thursday night!

For the American Idol 2012 elimination results show tonight, who would be voted off seemed clear to most of us predicting what would happen this week, and not just because this contestant failed to have a good performance last night. Unfortunately, there has been one contestant who has been consistently lagging behind the rest of the pack. Last week they managed to squeak through because the voters decided DeAndre Brackensick was slightly less worthy than they were. This week, however, there was no other singer at the same level to hide behind when it came time to face the music.

For my prediction of who would be voted off American Idol Thursday night, I chose Hollie Cavanagh, based on her past history on the show and her not very well-received performance on Wednesday night’s top 7 performances show. Hollie never really got over being a bit stiff and uncomfortable on stage and she had trouble connecting with the audience and the judges. She also frequently had pitch issues and her song choices were often questionable.

In addition, the rest of the contestants still remaining have all had their ‘wow’ moment on the show at some point this season. For some, it has been one ‘wow’ moment after the other, like with Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet. For others, such as Elise Testone, it has been hit or miss, but she has certainly nailed it to the rafters a few times. For Hollie though, she has had a few really good performances, but nothing that will likely be remembered once this season is over.

Before the American Idol elimination results got to who the voters wanted to boot off, however, we had to whittle it down to the bottom three first. This is where the total surprise of the night came in — at least to me and quite a few other American Idol fans and bloggers out there! My American Idol prediction for those ranked lowest by the voters was TOTALLY WRONG.

The actual bottom three for American Idol this week turned out to include three of the strongest singers of the bunch… and Hollie Cavanagh, who has been hanging by a thread for weeks, was NOT one of them! Here is the bottom three for this week:

* Jessica Sanchez (what?)

* Elise Testone

* Joshua Ledet

Facing the elimination of one of these three Thursday night, Steven Tyler announced that no matter who ended up with the least amount of votes. That means the person that should have gone home but won’t on Thursday evening was:

* Jessica Sanchez – wow!

The judges are not at all pleased with America’s votes for the evening and make a dramatic jump onto the stage to declare their save of Jessica.

“Give me that mic, this is crazy! Yes, we’re using the save, you ain’t going home. Go sit down, go sit down,” Jennifer Lopez said as she sort of shoved Jessica toward the contestants already saved.

“We are saving Jessica, without any doubt. Let me just say this. For myself, Steven and Jennifer, this girl is one of the best singers in America! Ever!” Randy Jackson said. “Are you kidding me? Please everybody… Please vote for the best, it’s about finding the best. I mean, come on!”

So guess what everyone? Next week we will have the entire American Idol top 7 back again! Now THAT is one heck of an exciting results show!
