American Idol Judges: Who Should They Use the Save For?

American Idol judges Harry Connick Jr., Jennifer Lopez, and Keith Urban appeared very distressed over the decision of whether or not to use their ‘save’ to keep MK Nobilette from going home this week. We have to wonder if the American Idol 2014 judges were so upset over MK going home, but didn’t use their save to rescue her, will they actually use it at all this season? If so, which contestant is worth using it to keep from going home?

American Idol 2014 judges

J-Lo was in tears as MK gave her final performance on the American Idol 2014 results show before her elimination. We can only guess she probably voted for MK to stay, but the vote was not unanimous and MK was sent home. While we predicted that the judges would not save MK Nobilette, it got us to thinking about which finalist they would chose to save — if any — should they end up getting voted off by the viewers.

If the American Idol judges are going to use the save at all, they don’t have much longer to do so before it gets taken away. This would have been an opportunity to save a popular contestant whom the judges seem to really like, but they choose not to do it. So why would they not save MK if they do plan on using their save this season at some point?

Well, we are going to be the American Idol 2014 judges have specific finalists in mind to save if they should somehow end up on the chopping block thanks to the voters. In particular, we think that if Dexter Roberts — who was in the bottom two this week — lands on the bottom, they will save him. Ditto for Sam Woolf, Alex Preston, Caleb Johnson, Malaya Watson, and Jena Irene Ascuitto.

We previously thought they would save Majesty Rose York or CJ Harris if either of them ended up in last place, but now we think that might be questionable. Majesty and CJ have both made some very bad song choices in recent weeks and have kind of lost their ‘shine’ as favorite contestants. Still, it is possible the judges might use their save on one of them. We guess that the judges would be more likely to save Majesty than CJ, however, just because of her youth and more engaging personality.

The person we think is in most danger of going home if she ends up on the bottom and only has the judges’ save to rescue her is Jessica Meuse. While she’s a popular contestant, and has had some great performances, we just don’t get the impression that the American Idol judges see her as having ‘star’ potential. (Not that we agree with them!) We don’t think they’ll get the chance to let Jessica go home without using their save, but if she did end up on bottom before they lose it, we think they might just let the voters send her packing.
