I predicted that Ayla and Kinnik would go...not hard to figure out.
I also said that Will and Kevin would go but the more I thought about it the more convinced I became that Kevin would stay and Gedeon would get whacked.
My theory: Kevin gets the national nerd vote. They'll rally and keep him around for several more shows.
Gedeon is a far superior talent to Kevin (btw, Kevin has NO business in the top 12, IMO). I think going first on a given night hurts your chances...seven more performers to help folks forget about yours. Bad luck for Mr. Smiles last night.
I'm glad Melissa stuck around. I like her voice. I don't think she'll last much longer, though.
IMO, there are maybe only 6 of the 12 that have a shot at winning it all. They are:
My personal favorites are Mandisa, Chris, and Taylor.
