American Idol 2011 Top 9 Performance Rankings

Update:   Nigel tweeted that Will.I.Am will be helping the top 9 contestants choose their songs for this week’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame theme!  Let’s hope he was able to help the singers choose songs that are right for their voices and make the judges happy.

Here are the latest weekly updates for the American Idol 2011’s Top 9 performance rankings. Last week brought in more than forty-five thousand votes in our “who was the best?” poll. While most of the singers held steady in their averages we still had a few numbers shoot up like a rocket while others fell like a rock.

The big climber for this week was Haley Reinhart who apparently did something right that I missed because she went from 3% of the vote way up to 13%! The week’s big loser was Jacob Lusk who fell to his lowest point with 4% after last week’s peak at 13%.

Going in to the American Idol Top 9 we’ve got a Top 3 singers rounded out with Scotty McCreery back in the first place seat followed by a tie between Pia Toscano and James Durbin for second place. While James has had his ups and downs, Scotty has maintained a solid top spot. For now, this contest is lead by Scotty and Pia and I won’t be surprised by a finale featuring those two. If Pia gets knocked out then it’ll be James standing next to the country crooner.

The less enviable position, Bottom 3, is filled by Jacob Lusk, Stefano Langone, and Paul McDonald. Jacob has managed to escape the lowest ranks before so maybe he could do it again, but I wouldn’t be surprised if he stands next to these other two guys come Thursday night.

Check out the rankings below and see how your favorite is holding up.
