American Idol 10 Top 12 Predictions

Going out on a limb this afternoon to predict who will make the Top 12/13 tonight.

Who do you think will make it through? Who would you like to see through?

Top 10 voted in by viewers:


Casey Abrams – A lock – He’s quirky, talented and pimped.
Paul McDonald – Ditto – Plus, like Casey, he knows how to play the game and perform to an audience.
Scotty McCreery – Triple ditto – His deep country vocals and sweet demeanor are applealing
Jim Durbin – The judges love him & I think he made enough of a positive impression on viewers to make the cut.
Jacob Lusk – If he isn’t voted in, the judges will Wild Card him, no worries.


Pia Toscano – Definitely. She came out of nowhere and killed. She’s in.
Thia Megia – Pimping and the Pinoy vote. She’s in.
Lauren Alaina – Between the pimping and her big voice and personality, I’ll be stunned if she doesn’t make it.

Two of:

Naima Adedapo – An attention grabber. I think she has fans
Karen Rodriguez – A good singer, very likable. She’ll get votes.
Ashthon Jones – She hasn’t had much screentime, but Big Voiced Divas for the win. There’s a segment of Idol fans who love the Ashthons.
Kendra Chantelle – She got a boost from her sweet duet with the popular Paul McDonald. Plus she can SANG. She could amass enough votes to squeak by.

Judges wildcard picks ( if they aren’t voted in): Casey, Paul, Scotty, Jim, Jacob, Karen, Pia, Thia Lauren A. Possibly Kendra, Lauren T. or Ashthon. They might give Julie Zorrilla another chance.

Not a chance in Hades: Tatynisa Wilson, Rachel Zevita, Jordan Dorsey

I’d love to see:

Lauren T., Kendra, Pia, Ashthon, Naima

Casey, Paul, Jacob, Brett, Scotty/James
