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

Ok. Since the judges used their one time veto power to save Michael Lynche last week, TWO contestants must go home this week.

Barring another surprise like last week’s "unexpected" elimination of Big Mike, I think it’s safe to predict at least one of tonight’s eliminated Idols. 

Andrew Garcia, to me, is almost a sure bet to leave this week. I mean, it’s definitely been his turn to go for a while now. His lazy-stupid performance skills, are really overshadowing some awesome Maroon 5-like vocals. I agree with Ellen that Andrew had great vocals on his Elvis song, but no one noticed because he just under performs on stage.

If Andrew doesn’t go home, I’ll be very very confused. Haha.

The second pick, on the other hand, is a little trickier.  Based on last night’s performances, it should be Aaron Kelly. He got slammed by Simon and performed early in the line up. But the negative feedback he got from judges may actually save him tonight - his fans may go into overdrive voting for him.

Now, if this year’s pattern follows last year’s week after the save, Big Mike could get by at least one more week and that could open the door for Katie Stevens being a possibility. And while she performed really well last night, she wasn’t as good as the week before. Plus, Simon somehow didn’t like it. So she may have lost the casual vote. I also don't think that she has a really deep fan base at this point.

But for some weird reason, I have this funny feeling that Casey James will end up at the Bottom 3. Yes. He got the pimp spot last night but that didn't prevent Anoop Desai for being eliminated last year after Matt Giraud got the judge's save.

Frankly, almost anyone else could go and I would not be shocked. Heck, even Siobhan is a possibility. But we'll see.

I’ll go out on a limb and say that it will be Andrew, Aaron and Katie/Casey in the Bottom 3.
