It’s round 2 of American Idol season 11 top 7 results and tonight, April 19, 2012, one of the finalists will be sent home. There’s only one save and the judges used it last week for Jessica Sanchez so that she remains in the competition. But tonight, one will be leaving for sure. Will it be her or it’s going to be another finalist? Who are you predicting to be eliminated on American Idol top 7 results round 2?
Each contestant performed two songs. Their first song were Billboard #1 and their second song is a soul song. The mentor is none other than Jimmy Iovine. The show also remembered Dick Clark who passed away last night at the age of 82.
Going back, songs by Lady Gaga, Adele, Alicia Keys, Usher and Fantasia Barrino were sang for the “now” part of the show while songs by “Dusty Springfield, Earth Wind & Fire, Marvin Gaye, Wilson Pickett, Ray Noble Orchestra, Smokey Robinson & the Miracles and Sam Cookie were performed for the “then” part.
Joshua Ledet got the pimp spot for the first time. The judges think he’s one of the greatest gifted singers on the show so there’s a big chance he’ll be safe tonight. Hollie Cavanagh was the first performer and one of the comments she got was her stepping up and finally coming out of her shell. Colton Dixon was up next and his sister was called up on stage. If you remember it, she auditioned but she didn’t make it. Not sure what part she was cut. Anyway, there were mixed reviews on his performance. There were parts they loved and there were parts they didn’t.
Elise Testone was the third performer who was told it’s hard to critique her since she always sounds so good. Phillip Phillips followed and got a standing O from the judges. They even said they have a true artist on the stage. Up next was Jessica Sanchez. The judges told her she nailed it again this week but was told there’s more than just having a great voice. There must be a connection as well. Skylar Laine followed and was told she’s giving the other girls in the competition a run for their money.
With that said, based from the judges’ comments, Jessica might be in the bottom three again. However it’s really hard to predict at this moment. Joining her in the bottom three could be Hollie Cavanagh and Phillip Phillips. The contestant who might go home is either Jessica or Hollie. What do you think? After the unexpected results last week, whether it was staged or not, it’s quite difficult to say who will go home.
Anyway, Kris Allen and LMFAO are the guest performers tonight.
