It’s three weeks to go before the finale and tonight, four of the top five will be a step closer for the big night. Who among them will be safe and who will be leaving tonight on American Idol? The top 5 results will be revealed. Find out who will be eliminated as well as who will still take the stage next week.
The top 5 performed thrice last night, two solos and one with a group. The theme for their first performance was songs from the 1960s while they tackled British pop music on their second performance. Hollie Cavanagh, who got the pimp spot last week, was the first to perform this week. She sang “River Deep Mountain High” for her first song where she was given a standing O by Randy Jackson. For her second song, she sang “Bleeding Love”. The judges said she really stepped up this week and got all positive comments from the judges. Could that mean she’s safe this week? Some says that every time a contestant did week, that contestant is usually the one to go. What do you think?
The second performer was Phillip Phillips. He sang “The Letter” for his first song and “Time of the Season” for his second song. Randy loved it while JLo and Steven told him about missing the melody for the first song. However, they said that he sang his second song well. Do you think he’s safe tonight or he could be in the bottom two?
Skylar Laine was the third performer. She sang “Fortunate Son” and “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me”. Again, the judges loved her performance, telling her she’s born to be on the stage. JLo even said that she might just win. If we are going to base it from the judges’ comments, she’s safe tonight.
The second to the last performer was Jessica Sanchez. She sang “Proud Mary” and “You Are So Beautiful”. On her first song, Randy said her performance was barely OK. But he was all praise on her second performance though, saying that she’s on top of the leaderboard. Steven said she’s going to be number 1 and JLo said she captivated the whole audience. Without them saving her, will she be in danger tonight?
Joshua Ledet got the pimp spot. He sang “Ain’t Too Proud To Beg” and “To Love Somebody”. He didn’t get a standing ovation on his first song but got another one for the nth time on his second performance. They said he’s one of the best singer’s they’ve seen in 50 years, that he’s such a great artist. Getting the pimp spot could me he’s safe again.
Predicting the bottom two is quite hard at this moment but if we’re going to base it from the judges’ comments, it could be Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez. However, it’s America who decides who will go home and our guess on the bottom two are Joshua and Hollie and the person to leave is Hollie. Have any predictions? Anyway, there might be another surprises tonight and we’ll never know until the live show.
In between the results are musical performances by Carrie Underwood and Coldplay.
