The voting results were announced during tonight’s live American Idol 2013 show featuring the surviving nine contestants and an entertaining performance by runner-up Jessica Sanchez.
While we’re still a short time away from filling in all the blanks of this week’s results events it almost feels like we can go ahead and put Candice, Angie, and Kree in to those top spots again after Wednesday’s impressive round of performances. The women crushed the male competition which means we can likely find the boys in the danger zone once again.
The new method of revealing the voting ranks is a welcome change for Idol where tight lips kept those details hidden from the viewing public. Nigel Lythgoe previously promised us more insight to the results and he made good on that offer even if it made him appear to be copying FOX’s ‘The X Factor.’
There will be no need to address the Season 12 ‘Wild Card’ runoff since those results were revealed last night. We have those details here if you missed it.
Now on to what we came for, the American Idol results.

What do you think of tonight’s American Idol results?
Amber for the win. Nobody sings as effortlessly as she.
Jimmy said “I fired 110 assistants when I used to make records”. Is he retired from music business? No. Anybody know what he means by that?
I thought he referred to a specific place he was working at when he fired 110 assistants. Maybe he just meant that one place in time when he did that. Not sure though.
He was referring to the time when he was the studio guy who cut the records. Now he OWNS the record company!!
Thanks for clearing that up.
Loved the way Jimmy Iovine scolded the judges
What Judges – :):)
Keith Urban is probably the best with feedback but I can’t see him ever really criticizing someone
Nicki Minaj is an embarrassment and I have no idea what she rambles on about most of the time. She is a bit over the top with her sexual comments.
Randy Jackson says the same things every year. He was boring in Season 01 and nothing has changed in 12 years.
Mariah Carey is just to nice. The closest she can come to a criticism is to say “whatever happens, continue with what you are doing.”
Say what you like about Simon Cowell, he at least told it as it was and the closest they have now is Jimmy Iovine who is honest with the contestants and – apparently – with the “judges.”
so agree…Simon Cowell was not just an honest judge…he really knows talent when he sees one.
And he has the creds to back it up with many successful artistes in his “stable.”
so agree…not only was Simon Cowell an honest judge, but he knows talent when he sees one.
He has a proven track record!
simon WAS the show. if you were brilliant he gave you a standing o. if you were terrible he reamed you out. he told the truth. jimmy is about the only one with a brain. keith is good but needs a little more guts. nicki is a joke and mariah is just a diva princess. randy is a broken record. it’s obvious that the fix is in for a girl to win. the girls this season truly are amazing.
I missed it! Oh gosh, what did he say haha
can’t believe Lazaro is safe. Not even in the bottom 3? Must be the “vote for the worst” having an effect.
I will be SHOCKED if the judges use the save tonight!
I bet they will place Amber on that pimp spot again for her votes to increase. Just a thought.
Lazarro =cuban peewee herman.
Making personal attacks is so unattractive. How about an opinion of his singing ability or his future potential as a performer in general?
I don’t believe Lazaro should be on the show because I don’t think his singing is up to scratch. No need for making fun of him though. Totally uncalled for in my opinion.
No he should’nt still be there. His singing has gone downhill consistently just like Nikki said. Hopefully, the “I feel so bad for him” voters will start to pay more attention to his actual vocal ability.
I thought he had good reason to be upset thursday night, but then I heard Jimmy’s take on it and now I’m not sure.
Its difficult for an amateur to remain stoic when he’s being bashed on live t.v. in front of the audience, including his family. Up till then he was being told he was fantastic wasn’t he?
Horrible comment but he will not last much longer!
No offense to all Lazaro fans, but this is a singing competition and he’s got the weakest vocals…he should’ve auditioned for America’s Got Talent.
I am moved by Lazaro’s story like a lot of people but that doesn’t mean I’m going to vote for him especially if he doesn’t deserve it. The people who are voting for him need to realize that because it isn’t fair to the other singers who deserve to stay. I’m not saying that Paul should’ve stayed but it may come down to a really good singer one night (potentially Amber like tonight) and Lazaro being safe over that person would be a travesty. JMO.
His story is inspirational but I think he is bleeding it for all he can and – so far – it is paying off. The fact is that he is the weakest of them all and should have gone this week!!
I agree with you but I also think that the judge’s won’t let his story go. Mariah seems to reference his courage continually but courage has nothing to do with singing ability. He should have gone home this week and unfortunately I think more talented singers will go home before him.
I think Mariah knows that, but true to form she doesn’t want to say anything to hurt his feelings so mentioning courage again was the next best thing.
A lot of us have had some reservation about declaring Angie the winner of AI 2013. And I am so glad that Jimmy finally said that “something was wrong”. I don’t know what that something is but I sure agree with him.
Does anyone else think the guys’ group performance of “Got to Get You Into My Life” was not very good?
It was awful!!
Sounded like a high school production number that was dished out for the sake of a production number! They were not even synchronised at the start of the song! Helloooo, our local pub band sings that way better!
It WAS like a high school talent show number for sure. Just ridiculous!
Voting this week is suck.. Lazaro need to go.. not Paul.. why amber bottom 3??? you do not know who can sing or not.. Amber was Amazing.. beautiful voice.. i don believe she bottom 3.. plez american.. vote base on performance.. not sympathy… honest comments from Malaysia…
i agree with u dear.. amber was amazing..!!
Lazaro is getting the pity vote!
YES! YES! YES! You are so right!
Did anyone else think Jessica Sanchez’ performance was very similar to J Lo’s (along w/ Flo rida & Wisen & Yandel) on the finale last year? The outfit and many of the dance moves were almost identical. Of course, there is no real comparison between the two artists , but the similarities are hard to ignore.
We said is she trying to be a young JLo?
16 and her song & performance was way too old for her. If she continues this way,she will be gone within 2-years.
Yep. I Think you’re right.
I dont want if Amber in the bottom 3,he is the worst
amber is kinda lost in the song theres a moment that you feel theres uncertainty…she has a good voice..she needs to connect to the song and to the audience…
i like jimmy’s critic to the contestant they should listen more to iovine advice than the judges…nikki minaj, worst ai judge… she needs to go home…
I think voters have no idea what real talent is.There is no absolutely no way Amber should have been in the bottom,she has one of the BEST voices
Hahaha. Obviously, people here who hate Lazaro cannot vote. Otherwise, with all the Lazaro-haters around here, Lazaro should have been in the bottom 3.
Lazaro is – by far – the worst singer in the competition but he will play the pity F**k as long as he can.
Just as I predicted, Lazaro is the top vote getter and one of the girls is already in the bottom 3 this week. It’s only a matter of time now. I wonder if Lazaro knows how to play the guitar?
Don’t care about the others my lovely Angie is safe.
i agree with everyone lazaro should go home not paul and amber was teriffic
Paul is out of Idol but he’s on his way to a great future as a singer anyway. Once he gets that tour over with he will really make a name for himself. If he doesn’t, the recording companys are really dumb.
