American Idol 2012 Top 5: Joshua Ledet ‘Ain’t Too Proud to Beg’ (VIDEO)

American Idol 2012 top 5 contestant Joshua Ledet continues to ride in the middle of the pack on most of the fan polls going around. He is consistently ranked lower in fan support than the other remaining male contestant, Phillip Phillips, and for some reason doesn’t seem to impress the American Idol 2012 viewers quite as much as he seems to thrill the judges.

Regardless of his current placement in the American Idol 2012 top 5 rankings, there is no doubting that Joshua Ledet is a powerhouse singer. Give him the right song and he can blow it out of the park and bring the judges and audience to their feet.

American Idol 2012 Top 5: Jessica Sanchez ‘Proud Mary’ (VIDEO)

American Idol 2012 top 5 petite powerhouse Jessica Sanchez has been considered a frontrunner this season since very early on. Although she did once somehow find her way to the bottom and was nearly eliminated, Jessica Sanchez is still consistently ranked in the fan polls as the leading favorite to win American Idol 2012.

Everyone was shocked the week Jessica Sanchez fell into the bottom two and would have been eliminated if the judges hadn’t used their own save of the season to dramatically keep her from being booted off American Idol 2012. Yet, before that she was considered the leading favorite to win and after that week, she has never fallen out of favor again. A strange fluke? Her fans thought she would be safe that week and gave their votes to their second favorite? A wild conspiracy by the American Idol 2012 producers to garner some sympathy for their ‘favorite’? Who knows.

American Idol 2012 Top 5: Jessica Sanchez ‘You Are So Beautiful’ (VIDEO)

Jessica Sanchez may be the one to beat on American Idol 2012 according to most fan polls, but if we’ve learned anything from the voters, it is to expect the unexpected this season. Despite being a heavy favorite to win American Idol 2012, nothing is ever certain when it comes time for those elimination results to roll in.

Whether you are a Jessica Sanchez fan or not, you have to admit she has built an incredible base of support during her time on American Idol 2012. Except for the one week she was nearly eliminated in the weirdest American Idol results show ever, Jessica Sanchez has never appeared to be in any danger of going home before the finals this year.

American Idol 2012 Top 5: Hollie Cavanagh ‘River Deep, Mountain High’ (VIDEO)

American Idol 2012 top 5 singer Hollie Cavanagh is the girl whose fans will not give in. Week after week it has been predicted Hollie Cavanagh would be voted off American Idol 2012, but her fans keep going strong and defying those predictions.

Hollie Cavanagh has managed to survive all the way to the American Idol 2012 top 5 despite repeated placements in the bottom two and numerous predictions she would be eliminated through what seems like half the season so far. Now it even seems like Hollie Cavanagh’s star is on the rise as she has managed rank higher than several of the other remaining contestants in various American Idol 2012 fan polls this week.

American Idol 2012 Top 5: Phillip Phillips ‘The Letter’ (VIDEO)

American Idol 2012 top 5 contestant Phillip Phillips is as impossible to predict in the rankings as he is on the stage. You never know exactly what sort of odd performance he is going to come up with next and you can never quite be sure he will continue to keep the voters happy enough to stay out of the bottom two.

Obviously Phillip Phillips has the ability to charm the American Idol 2012 judges and the audience with his quirky style. Even though he does not always garner the highest praise from the judges and has had at least a few not-so-great performances, he keeps ranking near the top of the contestants week after week.

American Idol 2012 Top 5 Preview: Who Will Rock Brit Night?

Wednesday night, the American Idol 2012 top 5 will set out to conquer songs from across the pond as they pay tribute to their favorite British artists. The American Idol 2012 top 5 will also sing a second song from the 1960’s.

I find it a bit odd they chose to separate out the two songs into these categories, considering that the musical British Invasion of American really started happening in the mid ’60s. So really, the American Idol 2012 top 5 could very well sing two songs from a ’60s British band like The Beatles and kill two birds with one stone!
