American Idol Power Rankings: The Final 4

by at . Comments

There's been a major shake-up in our American Idol Power Rankings, considering - ouch! - our number-seed from a week ago has been eliminated. Fare thee well, Skylar Laine.

Who will take over the top spot? Which of the final four do you think will will the title? Read on. Find out. Vote.

American Idol Top 4

4. Phillip Phillips. We've just been here too many times. He's white. He's handsome. He plays the guitar. Very well, mind you. But we know exactly what to expect on a weekly basis and it's no longer unique or exciting.

3. Hollie Cavanaugh. Not too different of a critique than we have for Phillip, really. A great voice, but not a great deal of stage presence. We can't think of one performance that really stands out and expected her to be voted off this week.

2. Jessica Sanchez. A beautiful rendition of "You Are So Beautiful" on Wednesday, continuing her trend of the Ballad Master. We could easily see her win and would stand up and cheer if so, but...

1. Joshua Ledet... not after the week Ledet enjoyed. Both of his covers on Wednesday were stellar, highlighted by "Ain't Too Proud to Beg." Is he theatrical? Yes. Overly dramatic sometimes? Sure. But we're big fans of Adam Lambert, so we can't exactly complain about those traits. What a voice!

WHO DO YOU THINK SHOULD WIN?

What does race have to do with anything? Are you unable to write a witty piece based on their talent?

American Idol Quotes

Brooke White's tears come from the authentic, good soul that she is. Her heart was breaking because she was overwhelmed with the experience she had with the show and the gift that it brought.

I read some of this online this morning and just for the record, the rumors — they’re not true. She’s part of our family and we love her.
