American Idol 2013 Top 4 (Again): Who Has What It Takes To Win Now?

No one eliminated on American Idol

After this week’s American Idol 2013 performance show and the judges’ complete overzealous worship of Amber Holcomb, I thought my finale predictions last week were off base. But after seeing last night’s results, I’ve regained my confidence.

See, last week, I predicted Kree and Angie in the top and Amber and Candice in the bottom. But when Nicki and Randy told Amber she’s better than any diva that’s ever breathed combined with every Greek goddess, I was like “wow, maybe I’m really bad at my job.” Nah. America saw right through their plot to push Amber to the top. So with that being said, my finale predictions only slightly change this week.

American Idol 2013 Top 4 (Again) Assessment

1. Angie Miller. She has regained her #1 spot in my predictions, after being replaced by Kree the past two weeks. Kree was on a roll, but the judges’ new badgering of her is going to drive some of her fans away. And since Angie has always been in the top two or three, I think she has a solid fan base and they’ll take her all the way. Finale Placement Prediction: American Idol 2013 Winner

2. Kree Harrison. Like I said above, Kree was doing better than second for a bit, but Nicki won’t let her go all the way. Not without a really lop-sided fight, that is. So I think Kree is probably going to finish right here. But then again, anything can happen right at the end of this crazy contest. Finale Placement Prediction: Runner-up

3. Amber Holcomb. The judges and producers might not get their wish for Amber to become the next American Idol, but their blatant pimping will likely push her ahead of Candice Glover. Finale Prediction Placement: 3rd place

4. Candice Glover. The fact that I feel like she will go home next week is a travesty. She’s the best singer in the contest right now if you ask me. But editing, placement, manipulation and just fan preference is likely to put her here. I hope I’m wrong. She deserves AT LEAST Top 3 ahead of Amber. Finale Prediction Placement: 4th place

How do you think the next few weeks will play out? Who is going home next and who is going to win American Idol 2013?





  1. It’s so unfair what the Judges are doing i see Nicky told Angie to to loose the shorts and every week Amber is in shorts and Nicky seems to ignore that. With that being said I say Candace is the better singer in the competition right now she’s been judged based on her mature look and that a shame.

    • Angie is a “church girl”. She is an inspirational/christian singer. She has yet to profess this to the audience and for “GOOD” reason. Are you suggesting this “church girl” to go bad and start dressing “Amber-like”? She has done her “church girl gone bad” thing during Motown week. You can have a look when she sings “Shop Around” during the Top 8 week. It was a major eyesore, not to
      mention a major fail. Search for it at yo4tube.

  2. Angie had me at hello. Not only her incredible singing, but her piano and songwriting talent, and good upbringing will place her deservingly the queen of 2013 AI !!! None of the others can compete with these undeniable qualities.

  3. I wonder if America is not getting Amber because she never seems to really connect with the audience in any real way. She tends to stay further back on the stage then everyone else and even stayed at the top of the staircase for one of her performances on Wednesday. I never see her interacting with the audience that Idol puts right up front where the contestants can touch hands with a fan, etc. I could just be imagining it but she seems almost leary of getting close to the audience.

  4. Candice is just as good as she always was. Her voice is beautiful. She is powerful when she sings. She should be the next AI. Kree should be second and Amber and Angie should be third and fourth place. Just because a singer sings an old song or picks the wrong song to sing does not mean that their voice is now bad or not as good as another girl who picked the right or most popular song to sing. A great voice never changes. It just gets better, with practice. The judges should be ashamed of themselves for showing how biased they can be towards their favorites. I wish all the ladies good luck.

  5. Everyone should stop listening to the judges. The producers are telling them who to pimp every week. AI should take lessons from “The Voice”. They have mentors, not judges! Everyone gets along, there are no fights, only good natured bantering and they really help the singers do their best. I love AI and have been watching this show since Kelly Clarkson won. I voted for her, but if AI doesn’t do something to revive this show and make it more current, I will not be back next year. Please people, vote for the best singer and not for popularity or because the judges tell you this singer is better than that singer. They are only saying what the producers want them to say. Good luck to all the ladies! May the best, most talented, win this season!

  6. No Amber will not win. Her voice is not the best. But is very good. She dose not have the fan base. I think Angie will win and Kree will come in second. I have picked the last 5 years and have been right. So we will see. The judges are so bad this year. You can listen to them. They are a joke.

    • Actually, I think this is the best group of judges American Idol has ever had. With Nikki being the most honest judge since Simion left. Even Randy seems to be doing better this year. Not a much “Yo, Yo, Yo” or “in it to win it” quotes.

      • You should not have gone off your meds.

        You are delusional.
        With the exception of Randy, the current judges are horrible. Keith & Mariah seem to be nice people but have absolutely nothing to say and the other one (the blowup doll) is an annoying, disgusting waste of flesh.

  7. To be honest, all 4 of them has what it takes to win the top spot on this show. I have never seen a season where the top 4 were this good. But, my question is who has what it takes to be successful after American Idol. Like it or not, female singers for the most part, always have to have a attractive look, to go with their vocal abilities. I’m not saying it is fair. But, that is the way it is.The judges know this … that is why they are promoting Amber and Angie so much.

  8. Candice has the best vocals but also the most weight. If Adel was on AI she’d have the same problem. kree knows her wheel-house but hasn’t been able to get into it with the Theme thing the last 2 weeks. However, Angela has discovered her wheel-house the last 2 weeks and has thrived. Amber will be singing her goodbye song this coming week!
