Phillip Phillips is the only remaining contestant of American Idol Season 11 who did not hit the Bottom Two or Bottom Three.
During AI Top 5 Results Show, Phillips was being predicted to be the one going home but Skylar got the boot instead.
The order of announcement and who are safe were:
1. Joshua Ledet
2. Phillip Phillips
3. Jessica Sanchez
4. Hollie Cavanagh
The show always say that the order of announcement of who’s safe and who’s in the bottom three does not reflect the number of votes that the contestants received during the performance night. But I’d like to believe that today’s order has something to do with it.
Based from the performances yesterday, it’s most likely that Joshua Ledet garnered the most votes followed by Phillip Phillips who has a huge fan base. It is my hunch that PP topped the poll in the previous weeks except yesterday when he received a “not jumping up and down” reviews from the judges. That’s why even when he was expected to get eliminated, he managed to still be in the safe zone, and the only contestant in season 11 who hasn’t been to the bottom list, ever.
As for next week’s elimination, of course, we are expecting Hollie Cavanagh to get the boot. Her very smart song choices enabled her to reach Top 4 but in my opinion, I don’t think she can make it to the Top 3.
As for our very own Jessica Sanchez, she should worry about Phillip Phillips and not Hollie if she wants to make it to the final 2.
Take note that Hollie is out of the equation (in my opinion). It’s either a Joshua-Jessica in the final two as i predicted weeks ago OR a Phillip-Joshua if the Filipino votes fail.
Nevertheless, who do want to see in the finale? The above-mentioned were just my opinion so do not discount that there are 6 possibilities for this one.
