Will Lazaro Arbos, Janelle Arthur or Angie Miller face 'Idol' elimination?

It was the best of performances (Candice Glover), it was the worst of performances (Lazaro Arbos) on last night’s “American Idol.” And it was also the most mediocre of performances (Janelle Arthur). So it’s no surprise that our “Idol” psychics expect either Arbos or Arthur to be sent home on tonight’s results show.

Four of our eight psychics believe Arbos, this season’s Latin-flavored version of season 6 finalist Sanjaya Malakar, will finally be eliminated after two disastrous performances last night. His rendition of The Carpenters’ “Close to You,” which judge Randy Jackson called “horrible,” was guaranteed to drive everyone away. His second performance, Robbie Williams’ “Angels,” wasn’t exactly a gift from heaven either.

Three psychics believe Arthur should start packing her bags after delivering a version of “I’ll Never Fall in Love Again” that Nicki Minaj called “boring” and Randy Jackson said was “definitely a little lackluster.” She then failed to find her footing with “The Dance,” the Garth Brooks number that was her second song.

Piano Girl Angie Miller also was picked for elimination by one of our psychics. The judges didn’t think her version of “Anyone Who Had a Heart” had a pulse (Urban and Nicki Minaj said it lacked passion). She rebounded playing the ivories as she sang Kari Jobe’s “Love Came Down” (the judges may chain her to the piano next week). The most disconcerting thing about her second performance was the background of birds swirling around her as if she was Tippi Hedren in “The Birds.”
