The American Idol 2013 Top 7 took on rock and roll songs Wednesday night and it was a high-energy night, with only one or two forgotten lyrics. And again, the push from the judges and producers couldn’t be more obvious. This week’s target: Burnell Taylor. But more on that later.
Most Likely Safe: Amber Holcomb
Probably Going Home: Burnell Taylor
100 Percent Safe: Angie Miller, Kree Harrison, Candice Glover
Most Likely Safe: Janelle Arthur
Possibly The Bottom Three: Lazaro Arbos, Burnell Taylor, Amber Holcomb
Probably Going Home: Lazaro Arbos
Surely it can’t be SO obvious that every single week only a guy goes home until they’re all gone. Can it? I mean if that streak is broken then Janelle or Amber will go home. But which? It doesn’t matter though because if this happens, the judges WILL use their save. Then the following week both guys will go home! Ha. Perfect drama!
I said Burnell is the target at the top of the blog because the judges praised Lazaro Arbos this week even though they shouldn’t. They don’t want the votes to split, so they decided to throw people off and say good things about him so Burnell will go home. And then next week they can focus on Lazaro. And if their plan backfires and Lazaro goes, oh well. It’s a win-win for them.
As I mentioned above, maybe it’s time for a girl to go? At this point I don’t see it happening, but I guess it’s slightly possible. And producers would love the drama of the judges using their save on, say, Amber. I think I’m going to stick to my first bet and go with Burnell as the person most likely to be voted off. And no, the judges will not use their save on him.
Who do you think will be heading home tonight on American Idol 2013?
