Although the judges appeared “shocked,” it was only a mild surprise that Colton Dixon was sent home ahead of Elise Testone. He had a bad night and at this stage of the competition that is all it takes. Hollie managed to hold on for another week despite being in the bottom three again. She had her best two performances in the competition Wednesday so she earned another week.
This still feels like a wide open Idol race, with Jessica and Phil at the top, and perhaps Skylar in a close third with the “hat” vote. Still, I wouldn’t be totally shocked if Joshua won. After Hollie’s comeback of sorts, even she might have a chance, although that is less likely.
Only Elise seems out of the race, unless she does something that earns her a “whole lotta love” from the voters.
Were you satisfied with the results?
