Someone is about to go home tonight on American Idol 2014. Who do you think it will be? Let’s see where your votes are leading us this week with the Top 8.
We’re going to give this whole Top 8 elimination thing another try this week after the Judges surprised us with their use of the Save. So which Top 8 will move on to the Top 7? Your votes in our Top 8 poll are predicting some up and down trends this week.
Crushing the competition is Caleb Johnson way up at 32% of the vote with his performance last night and I’m not surprised at all. He had a great showing and got to do it in the pimp spot which makes things all that much better for him. He’s definitely going to be safe.
Now according to your votes, the next two singers to be safe will be Sam Woolf and Malaya Watson coming in at 17% and 12%, respectively. Those numbers seem a little high for those two after last night’s performances. Malaya didn’t have her best night, but she could be riding high on past goodwill with her fans. Now Sam, I don’t know about Sam. Yes, he was voted out last week and Saved, but it was his second trip to the bottom. If the first Bottom 3 visit didn’t snap his fans awake then why would a vote-out? We shall see.
Hanging in the middle are Alex Preston and Jena Irene with 10% and 9%, respectively. That seems pretty reasonable and I’d expect them to be safe, but if they’re low here then it’s always possible for them to be even lower in the real deal.
Based on our poll, readers are putting CJ Harris at the bottom with 4% and Dexter Roberts at 5% just behind him. Both have traveled to the bottom of the votes before and these would not be a surprise. I really thought Dexter would get a bigger bounce from his fun performance last night, but maybe not. Rounding out your Bottom 3 would be Jessica Meuse at just 7% of the votes here.
Parts of these results are surprising while others don’t seem that far off. I wouldn’t be shocked at all to see Sam voted out again this week, but maybe that really was what it took to get his fans voting and CJ or Dexter could find himself saying goodbye tonight.
Who do you think will be voted off tonight’s results show?
We’ll be live blogging what happens tonight on American Idol with the voting results, so keep checking back here starting at 9PM ET for the spoilers!
