American Idol 10: Top 11 Redux - Who's Going Home?

I can’t remember the last time when I went into a Top 11 performance night wondering who might be eliminated. I mean, the first few weeks of the Finals were always about eliminating the people who should never have made the Finals in the first place. Not this year, it seems..

This is actually a little tricky than I expected, but I'm going with my guts and say that the two eliminated contestants will be between: Naima Adedapo, Stefano Langone, Thia Megia and Jacob Lusk. Let me break them down one by one. Ok?

Naima Adedapo, to me, wasn't the worst last night, but I think the odds are agianst her. She doesn't have a solid fanbase - she flirted with elimination a couple of weeks back - and the fact that she performed second last night didn't do her any favors as well. I also think that her reggae version of Elton John's I'm Still Standing is a tad polarizing for a lot of people to really appreciate. Yes, I like Naima and all her craziness, but at the end of the episode, her performance was just forgettable..

Same with Stefano Langone. His performance wasn't bad, but it was just too mediocre for people to even remember. I also noticed a little trend since the Judge's Save was introduced. The person part of the Bottom 2 - aside from the "saved" contestant - got eliminated the following week: Lil Rounds was in the Bottom 2 with Matt Giraud and Andrew Garcia was with Michael Lynche when he almost got eliminated. Which means that if this trend continues, Stefano could be one of the two eliminated contestants tonight.

As for Thia Megia, I'm not so sure about this. Arguably, she did really good last night, but for some strange reason, many people also hated her performance. I think her trip into the Bottom 3 last week may or may not help her. Jacob Lusk's inclusion in this list may seem random, but this is a possibility. I don't think he's gaining much fans from his previous performances and I don't think he has enough people to compete with the rest of the contestants. Let's see though.

But as always, I have to make a prediction and I think Naima Adedapo and Stefano Langone will be eliminated tonight. I'm hoping it's Stefano and Jacob, but I digress.
