LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Who is in the American Idol 2012 finals? The American Idol 2012 Top 3 results tonight proved as competitive as ever with Jessica Sanchez, Joshua Ledet, Hollie Cavanagh, and Phillip Phillips all giving their best performances of the season. When American Idol 2012 Top 3 results are announced tomorrow May 10, news analysts will learn if Randy Jackson’s elimination predictions are correct.
Earlier today, Randy Jackson told news that the winner of American Idol 2012 in his mind will end up being Joshua Ledet or Phillip Phillips. But many news analysts don’t agree. At the beginning of the season, Jessica Sanchez seemed to be the apparent top hopeful to win the season. But in recent weeks, many have worried if Jessica has slowed.
In turn, the judges have told news that Joshua Ledet has consistently improved through April and this month. Today, Joshua was on fire again. Joshua Ledet with You Raise Me Up earned top marks from the judges. Randy Jackson told news that Joshua has validated the judges’ praises. Jennifer called the performance “really great”. And Steven Tyler said “You are the plane are right now.”
Jessica Sanchez was great tonight with her performance of Steal Away. But after the judges saved her earlier in the season, Jessica has not ended in the bottom three ever again. Could this week prompt troubles for Jessica?
The judges certainly didn’t think so. Randy told her that her vibe was great. Jennifer said she loved the “growl” at the beginning. And Steve said “You just nailed that.”
Randy Jackson thinks Phillip Phillips could win this season. But despite Randy’s comments to news earlier today, Randy told news tonight that Phillip started “rough” on his performance. Yet not everyone agreed with Randy. Jennifer Lopez told news “The vocal quality you used for that was perfect” and Steve said that Phillip proved why he could win this season. “You are living proof that success starts with construction.”
So who could face elimination tonight? Not one of the singers tonight stood out as clearly in trouble. But Hollie Cavanagh coming into tonight’s performance clearly knew about her past. She has been in the bottom three before. But what did the judges think?
Randy told news that Hollie tonight gave her best performance of the season. “You are peaking at the right time.” Steven agreed, telling news that it was great to see her “blossom” late in the season. Jennifer was overwhelmed with how good the performance was. “I’m just feeling emotional listening to the song.”
Hollie has been in the bottom each of the last three weeks. So could Hollie face elimination tomorrow night?
