American Idol 12 Top 8: You guys took the polls, the votes are in, check out the results!

Your favorite performance was far and away Janelle Arthur’s haunting cover of “Keep Me Hanging”.  That performance earned  37.96% of the vote. Candice Glover’s groovy “I Heard it Through the Grapevine” took 15.53% of the vote. Kree Harrison’s “Don’t Play That Song” is right behind her with 15.06%. and Amber Holcomb’s lovely “Lately” took 13.55% of the vote.  Dead last, was of course was the trainwreck group performance from Burnell, Devin and Lazaro with only 3 votes that averaged out to 0%. Can’t go any lower than that?

However, your favorite overall CONTESTANT is Kree Harrison with 28.79% of the vote. Candice Glover is next with 20.9 %, Janelle Arthur follows with 17.01%, Amber Holcomb is 4th with 12.49%. Angela Miller rounds out the Top 5 with 11.16% of the vote.

Watch out girls, Ms. Janelle Arthur is gaining some momentum, methinks!

All 3 boys dwell in the bottom with percentages in the 3s.  Lazaro  Arbos is dead last.

Who SHOULD go home?  81.83% of you overwhelming voted to send Lazaro Arbos home.  But most of you don’t think he’ll actually be sent packing. 60% of you believe Devin Velez will be sent back to Chicago tonight.

Devin Velez and Burnell Taylor will surely wind up in the bottom 3 for lackluster performances, plus that awful group number.  No matter how much he may have deserved it, throwing Lazaro under the bus did NOT help the boys’ cause. It probably served to sway even more voters to feel sorry for Laz.  However, Lazaro could end up in the bottom 3, but I don’t think he’s headed home yet.  Also a possibility for the bottom 3? Angela Holcomb, who I’m not convinced is clicking with the viewers, even as she sings her face off.

Bottom 3

Devin Velez – Going home.  Several trips to the bottom means his time to go is here
Burnell Taylor
Lazaro Arbos or possibly Amber Holcomb
