Gonna be honest, because I don't have a horse in this particular race. But in case John actually reaches the finale... It's probably going to be with Joshua. He's been getting PV over Jershika for a while now.
However, I don't think John will reach the finale.
Having said that. 1. Girl Named Tom
Even though I wasn't enthusiastic of their Top 10 performance, I feel like it cemented their way to the top even more. Paris is the only one who can get close to GNT and even on his best days, there's still a considerable margin between both competitors. 2. Paris Winningham
Paris is without a doubt Blake's frontrunner. He would have this season on the bag if not for GNT. He is talented and can connect easily with Minivan. I mean... telling a sad story about connection to a country song before performing it, even though he is not a country artist? Come on. I don't think he do it on purpose, but the guy has been very appealing. 3. Hailey Mia
I'm actually unsure about this particular placement for Hailey. TPTB has been selling her very well, but her last performance may have dampered things a little bit. But she's still on the run, much more than other competitors. 4. Wendy Moten
Ugh, it pains me to place her in 4th because she's above everyone else on the competition. But the girl doesn't have a clue on how to appeal to the audience and unfortunetly it's an important part of the game. Blake has been a terrible coach when it comes to "navigating" the competition with her, as well. At this point, he's nothing more than a glorified cheerleader for her. 5. Jim and Sasha
If Paris is the Dark Horse, those two are the wildcard. I don 't understand exactly how they are getting voted through and I don't particularly like their act. But well, they are climbing and always in a very unexpected manner. In fact, I have a strange gut feeling that somehow, J&S and Hailey Mia are now direct competition and their respective placements are interchangeable.
Also, I'm sure TPTB will pull a robegate if Ariana do not have a contestant in the finale.
Well, Monday will define everything.
Let's wait and see.
