American Idol

Candice Glover won "American Idol" Season 12 over Kree Harrison as Psy, Jennifer Hudson, Jessie J, Adam Lambert and Aretha Franklin performed.

Is Phillip Phillips a-goin' home on 'Idol' tonight?

It’s the time of the season on “American Idol” where it gets interesting to see who has the most fan support to make it to the finale, and if our “Idol” psychics are right, Phillip Phillips won’t be one of them. Four people expect America will send him Phillip special delivery back to Georgia tonight after his version of “The Letter” didn’t get the judges’ stamp of approval last night, though he fared better on The Zombies’ “Time of the Season.” Perhaps more unforgivable than Phillip’s rendition of The Box Tops’ “The Letter” is that Jennifer Lopez had never even heard the song.


Jessica Sanchez, who wasn’t exactly “boining” on “Proud Mary,” chalked up three votes to be sent home tonight, even though she did a better job on her second song, Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful.” At least no one can ever accuse Jessica and Cocker of sounding alike.


Finally, Hollie Cavanagh, who should get the Nicki McKibbin Award for landing in the bottom 3 probably more times than anyone this season, got two votes for elimination even though she had one of her stronger nights with Tina Turner’s “River Deep, Mountain High” and Leona Lewis’ “Bleeding Love” (seriously Steven Tyler, you didn’t know this song?). Randy Jackson said she picked the right time to peak last night, but could it have really been too late?
