American Idol fans were shocked last week to find out that Jessica Sanchez received the fewest votes of the remaining seven singers.
She was more or less considered the favorite to be the next American Idol, but now it looks like she will have to struggle to avoid going home this week.
It looks like Jessica may face the fate of Pia Toscano, who was regarded as one of the best singers in Season 10, yet left early in the competition.
The voting last week makes the show this week more important than ever, since Jessica may actually have the least chance of winning of any of the remaining seven singers.
It surprised me that Joshua Ledet was in the bottom three along with Elise Testone, since they have the best stage presence of the remaining singers.
Colton Dixon, Skylar Laine, Phillip Phillips and Hollie Cavanagh had to be encouraged, to know they received more votes, than Jessica, Joshua and Elise.
American Idol producers surely didn’t want the show to turn into a popularity contest, but apparently that is exactly what is happening, since the three best singers received the least votes.
The question now is if Jessica can receive enough votes to stay out of the bottom three this week. If she continues to finish in the bottom three, it will be a sign, that she will not be the next American Idol.
My favorite is still Joshua, but I feel being from a smaller town may prevent him, from having the fan base to become the next American Idol.
Hollie Cavanagh is my next favorite if Joshua is sent home. The show has reached the stage, where good singers will be going home until the last singer goes home on finale night.
Votefortheworst.com is now trying to have voters vote for Phillip Phillips and claim their support kept him from being in the bottom three last week.
It is hard for me to believe that Jessica Sanchez actually received the fewest votes last week, but will assume American Idol is giving us the votes as they are cast.
Jessica is a good singer, but not sure if she or any other singer this year can sell a million albums like Scotty McCreery has done. Skylar Laine may sell a lot of albums, if she becomes the American Idol, since it seems like American Idol winners, who are country artists sell more albums than a singer like Lee DeWyze who won Season 9 but sold few albums.
Randy Jackson was shocked to find out that Jessica received the least votes last week:
