American Idol 2012 Predictions: Who Will Make the Top 4?

UPDATE: American Idol 2012 Elimination Results: Top 5 Live Recap

On the American Idol 2012 elimination results show Thursday night, fans will finally find out who will make it into the top 4 on the way to the finals in just a few short weeks. Who will get voted off American Idol 2012 this week? Will it be someone easy to predict or will the voters surprise us again with a surprise elimination?

This week it is quite difficult to make an American Idol prediction for who will be sent home on the elimination results show. Even figuring out which two contestants will be safe from this round is a serious chore. In one way or another, all of the American Idol 2012 top 5 singers could be in danger.

Jessica Sancez — In my personal opinion, I think jessica Sanchez will be in the top two this week. However, there are some bloggers out there who are actually predicting she might be eliminated this week. Seriously, with the way the viewers have been voting this season, anything at all could happen.

Joshua Ledet — This is a tough one. My head tells me that Joshua Ledet should be safe on American Idol 2012 this week after really great performances last night and overwhelming praise from the judges. However, the voters have a tendency to get pissy when the judges show someone too much love — especially when some people think the judges are trying to keep Jessica safe by distracting the voters with pimping up Joshua. Even though I think Joshua could possibly suffer from voter backlash, I’m still going to call him safe this week and not in the bottom two.

Skylar Laine — This country cutie is a conundrum. She has had two weeks of really kick ass performances and she is totally peaking at the right time. However, she’s still a niche singer and thus has a smaller fan base to work with. She’s also been in danger before. I could see her falling to the bottom two, but for my American Idol predictions, I think she’ll end up being safe Thursday night.

Hollie Cavanagh — I keep expecting Hollie Cavanagh to go home week after week, but she keeps trucking along. Last night I actually really enjoyed her second performance and she’s had a rise in rank thanks to her rabid voters in recent weeks. I think Hollie might find herself in the bottom two this week, but amazingly enough, I don’t think she’ll get voted off American Idol 2012 quite yet.

Phillip Phillips — Although I kind of like his quiry persona, I admit that I am a bit bored with Phillip Phillips. I don’t think he has stretched his range enough and the past few weeks he just has not been picking the right songs. Even though he’s still the ‘cute boy’ of the competition, which often meant a pass to the final three in past seasons, I think the voters might be tired of him too.

So, my American Idol 2012 predictions for this week are: Hollie and Phillip in the final two, with Phillip going home.

That wraps up my American Idol predictions for who will get voted off in the elimination results show on Thursday and who will make the final 4. Let us know your opinions on who will end up in the bottom two and who will get voted off American Idol 2012 this week!

    hahahaha.. Skylar is out !!! Let me scrutinize the entire show.. Haven’t you noticed that the entire show is all about making Jessica Sanchez win? The judges make few negative comments about Sanchez – it’s not because she is less powerful than Joshua Ledet but it is to attract the voting public to support Sanchez. They praise Ledet too much, to the point of giving him standing ovations so that in the public mind, he is guaranteed of the title and no need of massive campaign and support. Now, why is this happening? Let me tell you that Sanchez is more commercial than Ledet (not to mention that the public is not sure of his sexuality). Look at Adam Lambert (for the record), his sexuality did affect the result in the finale. Lambert surely was the favourite to win just like this season’s Joshua Ledet but he did not. Well… a strong prediction that Sanchez will win.

  2. Jessica And Phillip Will Be In The Finale! Phillip’s Very Unique. He And Skylar Were My Favorites, Skylar Shouldn’t Gone Home -____- Josh Might Leave This Week!

  3. get phillip phillips off the show and let hollie, jessica and josh be in top 3, with the latter 2 in the finale (though j-lo wished in top 13 performance show to have a sing-off bet. 2 girls in the finale)…:P

  4. I think Joshua is definitely in final two,who saved Joshua,Jessica and Skyler.

    once things both’s Jessica and Skyler never choose a right song.

    2011 was the best and the best american Idol ever this 2012 is kind of boring.

    Being in the industry myself, I have seen many young people trying singing as a career at a very young age. When they got it they got it. No if and but. Jessica and Joshua to me pass the singing talent but persona wise nay… Lets face it, a successful singer doesnt have to be a powerhouse. Marc Anthony is a powerhouse but JLo is not but both are succesful as singers. For JLo, the theme “gorgeous” speaks more for her. In my opinion, among the remaining 4, Hollie and Philip fit the Idol title well as they have the balance of talent and persona. One more thing, it hilarious to see how JLo try to out do other judges everytime. Eg. Randy said he never seen any singer like Joshua throughout the whole season, then JLo (being on the show just 2 seasons) interfered saying “in fact in 50 years”! hahaha How old is JLo again? 42 or 52?

  6. Nice performances last night, Jessica nice render on You are So Beautiful… also Hollie nice render on Bleeding Love, this American Idols will be saved tonight. so nice to see and hear them again in Youtube… Also nice render of Higher Higher, trio on AI girls. upbeat of their differences. Great!
