Who Will Go Home Next on American Idol?

Joshua Ledet seems to be the one to beat in American Idol this season after his performance last night. However, we know American Idol voters can shock us sometimes. If Joshua Ledet winds up in the bottom three tonight, then all bets are off as to who will win Season 11 of American Idol.

Skylar Laine and Jessica Sanchez seem to be gaining momentum after their performances last night. I look for Hollie Cavanagh or Phillip Phillips to be going home tonight, but it depends on how strong of a voter base that Skylar has after her Wednesday night’s performances.

I will continue to support Joshua Ledet, as long as he remains in the competition. My favorite singer after Ledet is Hollie Cavanagh, but she could be exiting the show tonight, despite singing very well last night.

American Idol has reached the point of the competition, where a very good singer will go home every night till finale night, so Hollie  may be a victim of the numbers game tonight. Personally, I think Hollie is a much better singer, than Phillip Phillips but feel like his fanbase is probably stronger than her fan base.

We didn’t get home from church till the show was half over, so this recap from the Los Angeles Times has more details of performance night:

Joshua Ledet The Next American Idol?

Joshua Ledet from Westlake, Louisiana is another step closer to becoming the Season 11 American Idol.

 

Joshua Ledet seems to be gaining momentum in his quest to be the American Idol. He got the best feedback from the judges and from Jimmy Iovine.

Ledet sings with emotion, which goes a long way in having a successful music career. I think he has the talent to be one of the more successful American Idols, but not sure how strong his voting base is having come from a smaller city in Westlake, Louisiana.

It was no surprise that Elise Testone was sent packing after all the negative feedback on Wednesday night. She had some really good nights and some really bad nights, but still has the talent to become a successful singer.

Jessica Sanchez has rebounded from her last place finish two or three weeks ago to stay in the competition, but can’t see her becoming the next American Idol, but if Joshua has a bad night, she could be the favorite to win it all. 

Phillip Phillips may find himself in the Bottom 3 next week, unless he makes a better impression on the judges and American Idol fans. Just my opinion for what little it is worth, but he doesn’t seem to be improving from week to week.

Hollie Cavanaugh keeps hanging around, but now she may the next to go home if Phillip Phillips doesn’t go home next week.

It was a huge surprise that Skylar Laine was in the Bottom 3 last night, after the judges had such positive feedback after she sang on Wednesday night. That raises the question of how strong her voter base is and if she is in Bottom 3 again next week, her time on the show could be nearing an end. 

There should be a lot of competition the next two weeks, as the singers try to make it to the Final 3 so they can visit their hometowns.

Living just a few miles from Joshua’s hometown of Westlake, Louisiana has me pulling, for him to be in the final three.
