Who Is Going Home On American Idol 2013 Top 10?

Paul Jolley on American Idol

The American Idol 2013 Top 10 took to the stage Wednesday night and the girls outshined the guys, which is what producers are going for, so they should be happy about that.

And I think they’ll be very happy when the first person to be vote off the show Thursday night is a guy. I have a strong feeling one guy in particular will be saying goodbye. Every season I share my thoughts on how I think the votes might go after a performance night. These thoughts are NOT my opinion, but how I think America will vote. Up until this season, I’ve tacked these thoughts onto my recap posts, but since those are now live, my thoughts will stand alone in a weekly feature. Starting now.

How I think the votes could play out (Scenario 1)

100 percent Safe: Angie Miller, Candice Glover, Amber Holcomb

Most Likely Safe: Kree Harrison, Janelle Arthur, Lazaro Arbos, Burnell Taylor, Paul Jolley

Possibly The Bottom Two: Devin Velez and Curtis Finch Jr.

Mosty Likely Going Home: Devin Velez

Scenario 2

Possibly The Bottom Two: Devin and Amber

Most Likely Going Home: Devin

My Thoughts: Regardless of the scenario, I think Devin will be heading home. If not Devin, then Curtis. I put Amber in the bottom two in the second scenario because I had her going home first regardless until they put her in the pimp spot Wednesday night with a Kelly Clarkson song. I think that was Idol’s way of making sure the girl most likely to go home stays, sending the first guy out.

I’m telling you, Idol is VERY calculated this season. Not only did they pull that trick of putting Amber last, but they put Lazaro right after Candice. All because Lazaro is probably the most popular guy and him following her will deflect voters from him. Very interesting things to think about this season.

What do you think of my assessments? Who do you think will be going home?
