Is it too soon to go ahead and call this season of American Idol for James Durbin? The rocker continues to dominate our Idol voting polls as he climbs the charts and leaves the rest of the season’s singers in his dust.
After last week’s 13% climb, James rose another 12% to sit comfortably at 46% of the vote. That’s nearly half of all votes going to the rocker while the other singers fought for his crumbs. Scotty McCreery, the former leader for most the season, put up a good fight though and earned an extra 3 points to get back up to 22%.
The bottom of the poll was once again owned by Jacob Lusk who manages to hang on week after week in American Idol 2011 despite being in last place in our rankings. Jacob maintained a 4% share of the votes like last week. Lauren Alaina shared the bottom half with just 7% of the votes, a two point drop from the previous round. Considering Casey’s seven point drop from 14% to 7% it’s not too surprising that he was let go.
Check out the rankings below and see how your favorite is doing. Keep in mind that these rankings are based solely on your votes in our weekly site polls.
