LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – American Idol 2012 Top 4 results tonight prompted a major rebound by Skylar Laine and Hollie Cavanagh from near elimination last week. American Idol Top 4 results tonight were stellar across the board. After a season in which spoiler predictions were often correct, and several marginal singers were progressively eliminated, tonight the final remaining contestants put up their best performances, and captivated the judges’ praise.
As we enter American Idol Top 4 results for May 3, 2012, one big question remains. Could previous bottom three singers face elimination again this week? Two weeks ago, Elise, Hollie, and Colton ended in the bottom three. Last week, Skylar Laine, Elise and Hollie ended in the bottom three.
But tonight, Skylar and Hollie delivered two of the best performances of the night. While the judges gave them top praise, news analysts wonder if the voters will yet again disagree.
Tonight, however, Skylar and Hollie impressed the judges. Skylar Laine was strong in her delivery of Fortunate Son. Randy Jackson told news “You are born to be on the stage.” Jennifer Lopez agreed, calling Skylar’s singing style simply “natural” for “every song”. Steven agreed, telling news that Skylar simply co-exists with her music, effortlessly.
Hollie Cavanagh also was stellar tonight with her rendition of River Deep Mountain High. But none of the judges were blown away by Hollie’s performance. Randy said “I loved it too.” Jennifer’s word selection was tame in her review. Lopez called the performance “nice” and said it showed “energy”. Steven simply said “The first time I really heard you step out.”
Phillip Phillips was also exceptional tonight. Many news analysts have contended that Phillip, Joshua Ledet, and Jessica Sanchez could be in the final three. But did they prove them right tonight?
Phillip Phillips on The Letter earned top praise. Randy said the rendition “made it new for me.” Jennifer was also impressed. Steve also enjoyed the originality, telling news that “you get away with it like the Stones got away with it.”
Phillip also earned top praise with his performance of You’ve Lost That Loving Feeling when teamed up with Joshua Ledet. Randy said the two men “delivered”, Jennifer liked how they let go and Steven was impressed.
