American Idol 2012 Top 5: Phillip Phillips (VIDEO)

American Idol 2012 top 5 contestant Phillip Phillips may be an oddball, but he is apparently a loveable one to make it all the way to this point in the competition. He may be quirky and unpredictable, but his fans keep voting week after week to keep him safe.

Besides Elise Testone, who was eliminated on American Idol 2012 last week, Phillip Phillips is perhaps the contestant with the most questionable and unpredictable song choices. Sometimes he seems to have it nailed to the wall, and sometimes you have to ask what the hell he was thinking. The judges are often totally astounded when he takes an unlikely song and rocks it out and then equally confused when a song should be perfect for him and it goes all wrong.

American Idol 2012 Top 5: Hollie Cavanagh ‘Bleeding Love’ (VIDEO)

American Idol 2012 top 5 hopeful Hollie Cavanagh may be the girl everyone keeps predicting will be the next to go home, but she keeps hanging every week thanks to her loyal fans. Despite constant negative criticism and naysayers at every turn, Hollie is just an arm’s reach away from the American Idol 2012 finals.

Although virtually no one in American Idol 2012 fandom seems to really expect Hollie Cavanagh to make it all the way to the final two, her fans have shown time and time again they won’t give in easily. Will this be the week Hollie just can’t quite squeak enough votes to keep her from getting voted off? Or will she surprise everyone yet again and make the American Idol 2012 top 4?

American Idol 2012 Top 5: Skylar Laine ‘Fortunate Son’ (VIDEO)

American Idol 2012 top 5 contestant Skylar Laine is a country star in the making for sure, but can she take home the grand prize this season to boost her claim to fame?

With the roaring success of previous American Idol country singers like Carrie Underwood and Kellie Pickler, I am betting Skylar Laine will have no problem having a great career following the show, but she would probably love to take home that fat American Idol 2012 winning title to help her along.

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.
