American Idol Season 18 Top 10-or-11 Spoilers

Recommended Posts

I liked Kimmy & Lauren more than Makayla. But when there's a huge cut I think many voters vote based on popularity & how much airtime a contestant received. Lauren, Kimmy, etc. who had less airtime with the huge cut were at a disadvantage.

I would put this in the song thread but it’s technically spoilers because I only did the top 11:

 

Home song predictions:

Francisco Martin: Home by One Direction or San Francisco by Niall Horan

 

Jovin Webb: Home by Marc Broussard or The House of the rising sun by The Animals

 

Grace Leer: Temporary Home by Carrie Underwood or The House That Built Me by Miranda Lambert

 

Arthur Gunn: Who Says I Cant Go Home by Bon Jovi or Little Talks by Of Monsters and Men

 

Jonny West- Hold On, We’re Going Home by Drake, or Come Home by One Republic

 

Julia Gargano- Hometown Glory by Adele or Home by Michael Buble 

 

Makayla Phillips- Coming Home by Skylar Grey or Almost Home by Mariah Carey

 

Dillon James- Home by Dierks Bentley or Turning Home by David Naill 

 

Just Sam- Empire State of Mind PT 2 or New York State of Mind by Billy Joel

 

Sophia James- Home by Morgxn ft Walk The Moon OT or Landslide by Fleetwood Mac

 

Louis Knight- Quite Miss Home by James Arthur or Lego House by Ed Sheeran

@Blirel House That Built Me would be a great choice for Grace, actually.

dillon - homeward bound  (simon and garfunkel) or california dreamin 

sam/julia - empire state of mind

jovin - sweet home alabama or house of the rising sun

arthur - home by daughtry

grace - home by sheryl crowe or home is where the heart with by lady antebellum 

louis/jonny - home by 1 direction

Kimmy's performance skills have been fine. Her problem was that she is just forgettable. She could sing circles around majority of this group. I like Malayla, but she has had shaky vocals for a while now. Cuz I Love You by Lizzo, Sorry Not Sorry, and Greedy have been shaky vocally. She is also not that great of a performer. She really needs to go back to a "The Prayer" type of performance, something that is impressive, cause her voice can't keep up with uptempo songs that also require you to belt out.  I am guessing she has some fan base from her AGT days.

 

I am interested in the top 11 --> top 5 cut. I feel like majority of the girls are toast.


Sorry.  I forgot that the reason why I thought Makayla would get through instead of Kimmy was because Kimmy was forgettable.  Makayla probably got in thanks to being on AGT, as you guessed.

 

If Grace made the Top 10 based on viewers voting, she might make the Top 5.  I’m pretty sure that Just Sam made the Top 10 based on popular vote and will make the Top 5.  Other than those two, yeah, the girls are probably toast.  Especially Julia, if she’s the one that made it in by the judges’s save.

I think that “Empire State Of Mind” would be a great song could for Just Sam, actually.  I looked at the lyrics and they seem inspiring enough for her to have a home run with or at least get to third base.  Also, I don’t think that it’s an overdone song, at least not on this show.

Actually, Coming Home by Skylar Grey would be a good choice for Julia, not Makayla, I feel. And I definitely wouldn't be surprised if the contestants end up singing some of these songs. So good job.

Personally I think the two contestants most robbed by this rushed format is Kimmy and Lauren SS because they'd definitely be part of a Top 14 and have a chance to build momentum if there was one. Who the 14th spot would go to I'd have to guess would probably Franklin 

 

Curious, are these contestants cut before the Top 10 allowed to reaudition? It's kind of a murky area because this is the first live semifinals ABC-era American Idol has done, and the past semi-finalists have been able to come back (Layla and Alyssa) but those were not live. I would love to see Kimmy (and why not, Lauren SS too) come back in a few years.

In S16 and S17, the cut-off was Top 14 so anyone who was in the Top 20/24 could return. I’d assume it’s still the same here, even if we technically voted earlier this year.

 

I know the last few seasons of Fox had the cut-off changed to allow semi-finalists to return, even if none of them were ever shown much in a subsequent season.

Everyone had a chance to build the momentum with voters.  Every season there are good singers, but for whatever reasons, don't generate a passionate fan base.  It happens.

Well...i guess Makayla has the save, but the good thing for her now is she won't be competing for votes against the females that are the same type as her, so ....this might not actually be so bad...i honestly thought if they were to save someone of her type, they would saved Cyniah or Kimmy first...

She could probably pass like one other person but there is no way she is jumping 4 people
