American Idol 2014 Top 8 Power Rankings (Again)

Well, American Idol 2014 has again thrown me for a loop with its results from last night. For some reason Malaya Watson is back in the bottom and Dexter Roberts is safe again. And somehow, Sam Woolf was the one set to go home had the judges not saved him. [...]
