After Hillbilly Hoedown was voted off last week on the world’s greatest karaoke competition, AMERICAN IDOL, it was down to four left on the show.

But who went home? By now, you know that Hollie Cavanaugh was the one kicked off the show leaving Phillip Phillips, Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet as the Top-3 on the show.

Rightly so, Hollie was in the bottom pretty much the entire show it seems (maybe escaping once or twice) and it was shocking that she lasted this long after being the weakest singer in the competition for some time.

They did the results a bit different this week not giving away who was in danger right away but saving it for the end by recapping their performances with Jimmy Iovine’s comments and then calling them all on stage for the verdict. First Jessica Sanchez and Joshua Ledet were told they were safe. So it was either Phillip Phillips or Hollie Cavanaugh. Hollie got the boot. Of course, there was no mention of a so-called “bottom two” this week so we aren’t clear if Phillips was in the bottom or they just did that as a swerve.

The interesting thing here is that I believe Jessica Sanchez has outlasted any other contestant that has ever been saved on the show. When she was revealed as the bottom contestant some weeks back it came literally out of nowhere. She was never in the bottom three and was generally regarded as a lock for the Top-3. Of course, since then she has again not been in danger. So that makes the cynic in me think that it was just a stunt for ratings, which would be pretty dastardly, but I would say not beyond what the show might do.

If she makes it to the Top-2 it would be the first time anyone that was saved made it to the finals and we could very well be seeing someone that was in the bottom, saved by the judges and then won it all. A nice story but again a little too convenient for my tastes.

  1. It’s not the talent’s fault that the show’s executives did what they did to Jessica when she got nearly booted if ever it was indeed true. She’s a true talent and she should be credited for that, not because of the advantage she might have gotten for the drama that followed the past event. Give credit where it’s due. Just my opinion . . .

  2. Yeah, I do agree with you, that Jessica being saved a while ago was most likely a stunt. Either to get ratings as you say, or to make people MORE likely to vote for her in the future. Hard to say.

  4. Listen you punk if you are going to sit there in seriously say that Philip sings better than Holly when he has no range and cannot go up an octave then you need to go get a check from the mental health department. That is totally ridiculous you need to go have yourself checked out sir. Jessica will win it all. She has 300,000 followers. Joshua has 90,000. Holly has 92,000. Philip has 216,000. My final 1000 votes will go to whoever is opposed to Philip in the finale. Eat s*** and die …
