Six contestants remain on American Idol Season 12.

And Lazaro Arbos is somehow still one of them.

With just a few weeks remaining in the competition – and ratings dwindling by the week – we present our latest Power Poll, counting down from number-six to number-one.

Can you guess who is holding down last place?


6: Lazaro Arbos: We’re kind of over his nice guy shtick. As the last man standing, he just can’t hold a candle to the girls. In fact, we’re not entirely sure how he’s still here at all.

5. Amber Holcomb: Amber has an amazing voice and legs for days, but she’s not showing much in the way of personality. Just who is Amber?

4. Janelle Arthur: She’s a sweetheart with a throwback twang which definitely makes her appealing, but she’s suffering from the bad song choice plague. In the end, that’s going to cost her like it almost did last week.

3. Angie Miller: The sole wannabe rocker in the competition, she seems a little confused sometimes. She seemed at home on “Bring Me To Life” and has proven time and again, with the exception of “Shop Around,” that she’s definitely got some vocal chops to be reckoned with.

1 & 2. Candice Glover and Kree Harrison: There’s no denying that these two are the stars of American Idol season 12. While they’re goals are different musical genres, these girls can sing anything the producers throw at them. Time and again they’re professional, polished, and awesome.
