On American Idol 2012 last night, the remaining four contestants performed two individual songs and each had a duet as well. While Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet received standing ovations, both Phillip Phillips and Hollie Cavanagh fell flat on one of their songs. Who will get voted off American Idol 2012 this week? Will it finally be the girl so many thought would ever make it this far? Or will the voters defy the American Idol predictions yet again?
Last week, country cutie Skylar Laine was sent packing on American Idol 2012. Her elimination was not entirely shocking as many American Idol 2012 predictions had placed her in the bottom two and more than a few fan polls showed she would be the one to go home. However, there were still quite a few fans who were surprised that Hollie Cavanagh once again managed to escape elimination over Skylar Laine.
On American Idol 2012, Hollie Cavanagh is the person who has been predicted to be eliminated more often than any other contestant on the show. Yet week after week her fans come through for her, keeping her from being sent home and even sometimes managing to boost her out of the bottom two. Still, this week it is hard to believe she will manage to hang on to make it through to the next round after one of her performances last night went so wrong.
Hollie Cavanagh’s first song on American Idol last night was stellar. She sound terrific on “Faithfully” by Journey and garnered universal love from the judges and both a “dude” and a “dawg” from Randy Jackson, which is high praise indeed from Idol’s currently most critical judge. Unfortunately, Hollie Cavanagh’s duet with Jessica Sanchez was very weak and weird, and her second song performance of “I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt was a dismal failure.
Thus, this week on the American Idol 2012 elimination results show, my prediction for the bottom two is going to have to come down to Hollie Cavanagh and Phillip Phillips. Hollie seems almost a given to end up in the bottom two, but I waver a bit on Phillip Phillips. With the huge praise from the judges for Joshua Ledet and Jessica Sanchez again last night, there is some small chance the voters might react negatively by putting one of them in the bottom two, but I doubt it.
For his first performance on American Idol last night, Phillip Phillips did not impress all that much with “Have You Ever Seen the Rain” by Creedence Clearwater Revival. It was not bad, it just wasn’t all that great either. He was much better than Hollie Cavanagh in the duets, however, and his second performance of “Volcano” by Damien Rice was one of his best all season.
Unfortunately for Phillip Phillips, I think the war between fans of Joshua Ledet and fans of Jessica Sanchez to make sure each of them end up in the final two will end up pushing him down into the bottom this week. Plus, I don’t see Skylar Laine’s fans voting for Phillip Phillips now that their country girl is gone. They are more likely to switch their votes to Jessica Sanchez or Hollie Cavanagh.
In the end, for my American Idol predictions this week for the bottom two, I have to go with Phillip Phillips and Hollie Cavanagh. Between the two, I find it a bit difficult to choose who will go home mostly because Hollie Cavanagh’s fans seem to be so rabid. Even so, I believe the second performance from Phillip Phillips on American Idol last night might just be his ticket to the next round.
So I guess that means for my American Idol 2012 prediction this week for who got voted off American Idol 2012 would be: Hollie Cavanagh.
Now let’s wait and watch and see if y’all get to make fun of my American Idol predictions again this week when I get it totally wrong…
