On American Idol 2012 last night, the remaining six contestants tackled songs by the legendary rock band Queen and gave it their all to convince the voters to keep them around for another week. Who will get voted off American Idol 2012 this week? Will it be another shocking elimination or will the results be more predictable this time?
The voters have been wildly unpredictable recently, sending favorite Jessica Sanchez to the bottom two weeks ago and then eliminating Colton Ford last week, but we have our American Idol predictions for who will end up in the bottom Thursday night. Read on for our picks and tell us yours!
This week on the American Idol 2012 elimination results show, my prediction for who is most likely to be guaranteed safe is Jessica Sanchez. Even though she almost got voted off American Idol two weeks ago, I don’t think her voters are going to let her anywhere near the bottom this week. Anyone who likes Jessica will be voting for her. Plus, although her “Bohemian Rhapsody” last night was kind of a fail, her rendition of “Dance With My Father” was so sappy sweet and gooey over the top that no one will remember her Queen song was less than stellar.
Also safe this week in my American Idol 2012 predictions is Phillip Phillips. I do not think last night was a great night for Phillip. Both song choices were questionable and he didn’t rock either one. However, without Colton Dixon around, everyone who is into voting for ‘the cute boy’ will be voting for Phillip Phillips. I think this will make him safe for at least one, if not two, more rounds.
In the danger zone in my American Idol predictions this week are Elise Testone, Hollie Cavanagh, Joshua Ledet and Skylar Laine. I think of the three, Joshua Ledet is likely the safest and won’t end up in the bottom two. However, the fans speaking out on the Net seemed to be a little cranky that the judges keep falling over themselves to praise him so highly every week and keep giving him those standing ovations. So they could decide to smack back a little at all that smugness by throwing him down in the bottom of the pack.
On the American Idol 2012 elimination results show Thursday night, I am expecting that it will end up being Hollie Cavanagh, Skylar Laine and Elise Testone in the bottom three. However, I am already going to admit that the voters might not agree with me on Hollie Cavanagh, primarily because she had the ‘pimp’ spot of singing last this week. Whoever is in that spot seems to get a boost in the votes for the following day. Plus, Hollie’s supporters are sick of everyone talking about how she should get voted off American Idol. So they might just propel her into the top three, which would drag Joshua Ledet down to the bottom three.
For the bottom two this week in my American Idol predictions, I am going to choose Skylar Laine and Elise Testone. I’m sad about this because honestly I think Skylar and Elise deserve to be moving on more than either Phillip Phillips or Hollie Cavanagh based purely on raw talent alone.
Unfortunately, Skylar Laine is a country niche singer and while she’s probably already established a strong future career for herself (like previous Idol country girls), she is not going to win this thing. The voter surveys are also ranking her very low this week despite her very strong Queen song on American Idol 2012 last night and her good personal song performance. Still, I don’t think Skylar Laine will be the one going one.
Sadly, I think that the person who will be voted off American Idol this week will be my remaining favorite girl, Elise Testone. Always flirting with the bottom, Elise Testone just can’t seem to quite connect with the voters. She’s a rock star and she has huge raw talent, but she has pitch and control problems when she lets her passion overwhelm her performance. I think Elise is amazingly talented and I hope someone out there will give her the break she needs… and a great coach who can transform her image to match her pipes and pump up that ‘it’ factor she needs to make it in the music biz.
