American Idol

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

Will Elise Testone, Joshua Ledet or Hollie Cavanagh bid farewell to 'Idol'?

Last night Jennifer Lopez said Elise Testone needs to smile more, but based on the predictions of our nine “American Idol” experts, Elise may just have to grin and bear it on tonight’s results show: Everyone had her in their bottom three and five people had her going home.

 

Not only did the judges chastise Elise for her performances last night (particularly her uninspired take on “Let’s Get It On”--which Randy Jackson called an Al Green song?), but she had to endure the slings and arrows of J.Lo  for not baring her heart and soul, and not smiling enough. (Maybe after the show Elise was punished by watching J.Lo’s video for “Dance Again” to learn about what she should bare.)

And although the judges were feeling plenty of love for Joshua Ledet (all he has to do is walk onstage and the judges give him a standing O), some of our psychics weren’t as smitten. How appropriate that the contestant nicknamed "Mantasia" should sing Fantasia’s season 3 coronation number “Believe” last night, complete with his signature shriek at the end (the same shriek brought his rendition of Sam Cooke’s “Change Is Gonna Come” to a screeching halt).

 

Hollie Cavanagh also was one person’s pick as the bottom vote getter, although she redeemed herself after the past two disastrous weeks with last night’s “Rolling in the Deep” and “Son of a Preacher Man.” But, as the judges might say, did she do enough?

 

Here’s who else we predict will be in the bottom three.
