The American Idol 2013 Top 9 will sing songs from the Lennon-McCartney songbook tonight and as we’re already quickly approaching Top 8 week, it’s time to start figuring out who is going to win this thing.
A lot can change in the next several weeks, but if you were to judge the contestants’ popularity based just on Twitter (hey, that’s how Lady GaGa and Justin Bieber do it), then Angie Miller would be most likely to win the show as Wednesday morning at midnight. Second place would go to Lazaro Arbos.
Please keep in mind that Twitter numbers go up and down at the drop of a hat, so please don’t compare my numbers to current numbers. They’ll surely change even as you’re reading this.

Thoughts: I don’t think this order will reflect the order of elimination or anything, but I think it does tell us that Angie through Burnell should be safe for the next couple of weeks. As for those remaining four, any one of them could be in danger this week. I also know that not everyone who watches or votes for Idol is on Twitter. This is not scientific. It’s just a fun look at possibilities.
I do find it interesting that Lazaro has more than 10,000 more Twitter fans than Kree and Candice, but still wasn’t in the Top 3 last week.
What are you thoughts? Who will be going home this week and who is going all the way to the finale?
twitter means nothing. let’s hope that america votes intelligently and picks the winner due to his or her VOICE. this is a singing competition after all. clearly this season there are three who stand head and shoulders above the rest and they’re all of the female persuasion. go angie!! go candice!! go kree!!
It can mean a lot with the new “SuperVote” thing. If Angie can ask 5x the followers to vote for her at 50x a vote then she’ll pick up a nice buffer over Devin or Amber.
It’s not everything, but it can make a difference.
possibly. but even if she doesn’t win, jimmy will scoop her up in a heartbeat and give her a contract.. as in the past, it’s not always the winner who goes on to a successful career…hudson, mcphee,lambert. and some of the past winners have faded into obscurity.
Jessica’s followers were way beyond Philip’s number, so it doesn’t put much weight based on last year’s result. 🙂
Now I did not say this was a scientific analysis. It was just a look at twitter followers.
Yes. Read the article and then comment.
no no no… candice is my fav girl, and Burnell fav boy also lazaro
I truly don’t believe that means anything. Janelle is well liked, just surf the internet. And many are not big fans of Angie’s even though she has a large following on twitter. Kree has a lot of fans also as does Candace. Burnell not so much. I think the order of twitter followers really has nothing as all to do with who will go home in what order. Sorry. I also don’t know how safe Burnell will be. Dialidol had him in the bottom 3 last week and they usually are pretty much right on it throughout the season. The got the bottom 2 right last wk!

Lazaro is not an exceptional singer regardless of how popular he is on twitter and with viewers. There were so many truly gifted voices eliminated. Even though Devin is low on the list he does have an extraordinary ability, but he needs better song choices and maybe an image enhancement. Angie cant top the performance of her original song, but she’ll be in the top two with Candice, unless something drastically changes for one of the others. Everyone says its supposed to be a singing competition, but obviously its not just about that for the voters. If it was then Jessica Sanchez would have won it last season.
I follow angie and I can’t vote for her
