American Idol 10: Top 9 - Who's Going Home?

It's funny how American Idol went from having one of their worst seasons - if not the worst - last year and have a complete turn around this year with possibly one of their best, at least in my opinion. Seriously. Everyone is very evenly matched this year. I don't even know where to begin predicting the Bottom 3 - more so the one leaving this week.

All I know is that if it's another woman going home, I might punch someone in the soul. I mean, these remaining girls are absolutely incredible. Sure, they have obvious flaws that seem to make them unsuitable to win the whole thing, but the remaining guys are just as imperfect. Besides, flaws in spades didn't keep Lee DeWyze from winning last year.

But if I'm going with my guts, I think the Bottom 3 will just play around Jacob Lusk, Stefano Langone, Haley Reinhart and Lauren Alaina. I can throw Paul McDonald and Casey Abrams in the mix, but them leaving is very remote as of the moment. I mean, Paul had the pimp spot and I still think that Casey is still riding high from the judges' save.

Yes, I put Haley and Lauren's name just because I know that a girl will (unfortunately) be part of the lower group this week. They don't deserve it, but I have this funny feeling one will hit the Bottom 3. Personally, I don't want Pia Toscano to hit the seal just because that will scare her right back into the ballad box and I obviously don't want that.

Stefano Langone, on the other hand, I think should worry because while his performance had some great moments, he just doesn’t seem to be able to find any traction from it. I think just like Haley, he needed to DELIVER to stay in the competition, but decent won't cut it.

The only thing that could possibly save Stefano from elimination is the incredibly annoying comment of Jacob Lusk before his performance. Yes, that's Idol suicide right there. I admit, if only Jacob had not lectured the viewers watching, I think he would be safe as he had a more than decent performance. Sadly, that comment was stupid and I wonder if America caught it.

But as always, I have to make a prediction and I think Jacob Lusk will be eliminated tonight. I'm hoping it's him because I can't take another girl leaving this week. Thank you very much! Haha.

den, ano yung comment na yun? curious ako, di naman kasi ako makanood eh hehehe


Mama Young: He said: ""If I'm in the Bottom 3, it won't be because I was bad or because I sang the song bad. It'd be because America wasn't ready to look at themselves in the mirror." Not verbatim, but something in that context.
