I think that the fans will make the difference in this week’s idol . It has gotten to the point that no matter what the judges say, their fan base will decide. Based on this assumption, the fans of Michael Lynche and Casey James have better step it up with the call in votes.
Casey James is a good singer, but due to lack of votes, ended up in the bottom three last week. It does not matter that there are several other contestants that should have been there. His fans did not support him as much as he needed.
Michael Lynche is another good singer, but once again, he ended in the bottom three. His fans need to increase their call in votes if they want to see him there.
The popular Aaron Kelly has a good fan base. His swooning teenage fans love his song technique and his cute demeanor. His song choices have been constantly good. He is young, but very good. His stage presence is not at the level it should be yet, but every week he does better. Will his fans continue to keep him in the competition?
Lee DeWyze is another good singer, however, I think that he is going to be in the bottom three this week.
The problem with this part of the competition is that even good singers are going to be sent home. They might go home, but their careers will not go away. American Idol has the distinction of creating stars even with those who do not get to be the American Idol.
I predict that the bottom three this week will be Lee DeWyze, Casey James, and Michael Lynche. Which of these three will go home? I think that Casey James might be bidding adieu this week, based on his past performance in the bottom three.
We will have to judge by the performances this evening. A good performance can generate fan votes, so the fans will be looking for that special showing . At this point of the game, the judges’ comments are taken into consideration by the contestants, but the audience makes their own decisions.
The law of averages dictates that one of the men will be going home. Crystal Bowersox is the only female left standing. She has a very good chance of making it to the finals, but several of the male contestants have the potential of going home in the next few weeks.
The call in votes are crucial. They can save or eliminate a favorite, as shown in weeks past..
This season has proved to be one of improvement. When these contestants began their Idol journey, they did not have the polish that the other contestants in previous years had. This proves that you can take an unpolished stone and make it into a diamond.
