American Idol down to the finals

Well, three out of four ain't bad. As I expected, on the girls side both Amanda Avila and Janay Castine bit the dust. So did Travis Tucker on the boys side. My only miss was a narrow one as Scott Savol just avoided elimination in favor of Nikko Smith.

That leaves me 9 of 12 picking those who will be cut.

I have to say, even before hearing the first round of the final 12 that Scott and Constantine are probably going to be the first out among the males. I really believe Mikalah will skate by for a while on personality, but wouldn't be surprised if she makes an early exit as well. Lindsay has to be considered the other girl on thin ice and might be the first out if you put a gun to my head right now.

Vonzell, Nadia and Anwar will have a much better chance to succeed after Nikko and Travis exited, purely as a numbers game. Carrie and Jessica will battle each other for votes, but should last past the first few cuts. Anthony and Mario have the "nice guy" thing going for them, while Bo has nothing to worry about unless he has a really, really bad week.

One thing is certain, no one will want to perform early as this week's first and second female and fourth and fifth male were axed.

that's my take
