On American Idol 2012 last night, the top 3 contestants each performed three individual songs last night and all of them had at least one truly stellar performance. So which of the extremely gifted top 3 will go home in the American Idol 2012 results show Thursday night? Well, we have our American Idol 2012 predictions for the week.

Read on to find out who we think got voted off American Idol 2012 this week and who we think will survive to compete in the finale next week.

On American Idol 2012 last night, Jessica Sanchez thrilled with her tribute to judge Steven Tyler on “I Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith.

Joshua Ledet brought the house down with his rendition of “Imagine” by John Lennon.

Phillip Phillips chilled out and had the girls swooning with “We’ve Got Tonight” by Bob Sager.

However, only Joshua Ledet really seemed to draw universal praise for all of his performances last night. Both Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips got a bit of criticism from the judges on a few of their songs. Still, despite his universal adoration by the judges and their constant standing ovations for him over the past few weeks, Joshua Ledet still might not have done enough on American Idol 2012 last night to save himself from elimination.

Unless the vast majority of fan polls and surveys out there are totally wrong, there seems little doubt that Jessica Sanchez will make it through the American Idol 2012 results show tonight without a problem. Who she will end up facing in the American Idol 2012 finale is the big question in our American Idol 2012 predictions for this week. In a battle between quirky WGWG (white guy with guitar) Phillip Phillips against soulful gospel belter Joshua Ledet, who comes out on top?

Well, unfortunately for Joshua Ledet the odds just aren’t in his favor. In other words, in The Hunger Games, Joshua Ledet would probably be royally screwed about now. The WGWG statistics are pretty strong from past seasons and indicate Phillip Phillips is statistically the most likely guy of the two to end up in the American Idol 2012 finale. Plus, there are quite a number of American Idol 2012 fans out there who are just not pleased with how much lavish praise the judges seem to have been giving Joshua Ledet in recent weeks. Thus, there are a large number of American Idol predictions out there calling it for Joshua Ledet to be the one who got voted off American Idol this week.

My favorite conspiracy theory is still that the judges are intentionally trying to pump up Joshua Ledet to piss the fans off to vote for their real favorite, which is alternately Jessia Sanchez or Phillip Phillips depending on which forum you happen to be in. The Jessica Sanchez fans at least have a little more ammunition for their conspiracy theory since male American Idol winners have consistently underperformed female ones in record sales so far. So that would allegedly mean the American Idol 2012 powers-that-be want the girl to win this time around.

In the end, I personally think it just comes down to who has the bigger fan base. As fabulous as Joshua Ledet may be, he just does not seem to draw quite as much rabid fan love as either Jessica Sanchez or Phillip Phillips. His fans do adore him, but it is Sanchez and Phillips that seem to provoke the most outraged and crazed responses from their supporters anytime anyone says anything negative about them. Based on all the fan polls, the forum posts, the media hype and my own gut, I think my American Idol prediction for the elimination results show this week is going to have to be Joshua Ledet getting the boot.

Who do you think will be the one who got voted off American Idol 2012 this week? Who do you think will take home the top prize when an American Idol 2012 winner is crowned next week? Share your thoughts with us below in our comments section!
