American Idol 2013 Spoilers: Lazaro Arbos – Good Singer or Pity Votes?

I know I am not the only one who will say this, but I was shocked with who was voted off American Idol 2013 last night and more so the fact that Lazaro Arbos was in the Top 3 for the night on American Idol 2013 spoilers! So, Lazaro makes the Top 3 last night on American Idol Season 12 and why do you think that is? Is he that great of a singer? Cute? Sympathy votes?

American Idol 2013 Spoilers - Lazaro Arbos

Let’s take a look at some of the options for Lazaro Arbos on American Idol 2013:

  1. He has had a rough life and has the stuttering problem, but then sings very well (or he did at the beginning of the season). Everyone is voting for him because they feel bad for him and sympathy votes?
  2. He was named the worst singer on the site Vote For The Worst, which picks the worst singer each season on Idol and tells everyone to vote for them to keep them on the show longer and ruin Idol. Are people actually following this site and voting for him?
  3. He is cute with a good personality, which the tween girls love and vote in millions for. It was either Burnell Taylor or Lazaro and the tweens went with Lazaro over any of the girls?
  4. He is from Cuba, so he has the Cuban/Hispanic/Latin vote coming his way?
  5. He is a supposed friend of Season 11 runner-up Jessica SanchezThey have tweeted out a picture together, so maybe her fans are rallying behind Lazaro this season?
  6. He actually isn’t getting all the support we think he is, but producers are keeping him on the show because they need someone to help with the American Idol ratings and they think Lazaro can do it?

Either way, he has made it into the Top 6 on American Idol Season 12 and will he be able to breakup the five girls next week? Why do you think people are voting for him?

  1. They give most popular songs to their favorites, and Lazaron is not one of them, that is one of the reason he is looking so bad. WE ARE ALL ASKING THAT MIGHT BE THE REASON BECAUSE YOU GUYS WANT HIM TO LOSS

  2. Norman Stanley says:

    Lazaro hasn’t got a hope of winning I think he will get voted out very soon all of the Girls have got great voices one of them will win this year

  3. Gerry Lennon says:

    It is not surprising Lazaro’s vote is holding up quite well, considering the overall voting is probably down, along with the viewing figures. He came in with probably the biggest fan base, because of his history, whereas the others have had to build theirs on performances.
    Normally by this stage the overall vote would have swelled so the proportion of fans who have been voting for him would get proportionately smaller. The other difference is that the guys are getting less votes, but as they leave, Lazaro may pick up a few more?

    Another factor that few consider, is the influence of the betting industry? If he was back at long odds to be the last guy standing, then the return could dwarf the cost of multiple voting.

    I get the feeling if they had done contestants view of each other last week, Burnell may well have survived? He came out of that rather well, as was shown by the tears at the end. He will do okay in the future.

    Now Lazaro is up against the ladies, and if they perform to their top level, I will be surprised if his vote remains strong enough, unless he puts in a special performance himself. Either way, I cannot see him being among the last four, which is when the voting will get really tight?

  4. A Scott says:

    I was shocked that Lazaro didn’t go home FIVE weeks ago! If he doesn’t go home next week, something is definitely rotten on American Idol.

    • I agree, he is good don’t get me wrong, but he should have gone home two weeks ago. Unfortunately, he has the tween vote behind him,

  5. Mark a watters says:

    People pleazzzzzz. Vote for your favorite, not the contestant you want to go home. This is the only explanation I can imagine for the insanity of not sending Lazoro packing three weeks in a row. I say get rid of the scank nicki and bring back simon. Maria Cari personifys class. Randy quit being a wus and speak up. I felt embarrassed for the shows quality after watching last nites results.

    • So agree although I wouldn’t have said it that way, Nikki manaj or however it’s spelled needs to go home. She is not a good fit for this show, she is turning all the people over 18 off of the show.
