American Idol 2012 Top 5 Takes Shape

American Idol 2012 top 5

Next week when American Idol 2012 heads to its results show we’ll see more singers seated at Ryan Seacrest’s Stools O’ Sorrow than at the Seats O’ Safety (Benches O’ Benevolence?) for the first time this season. Yes, there are just five singers left in Season 11 and that’s going to make things seem even lonelier at the top for these remaining finalists.

There many have been plenty of disappointed viewers last night with Elise Testone’s elimination, but I’d guess most of you weren’t surprised considering the votes in our poll this week. Elise’s fans will have plenty of opportunities to hear from her again as she said in one of her first post-elimination interviews.

Then next week get ready for the British Invasion all over again. The remaining American Idol finalists will be performing “British music-themed” songs, though I’m not sure why they aren’t just “British songs.” Am I missing the contingent of US singers posing as British singer-songwriters? Or are there songs with British themes? Anyway, next week the UK takes back over, but this time with less taxes.

Here’s your American Idol 2012 Top 5:

  • Hollie Cavanagh
  • Skylar Laine
  • Joshua Ledet
  • Phillip Phillips
  • Jessica Sanchez

What do you think of this season’s Top 5? Is your favorite still there?
