The final results for the winner of American Idol’s season 11 will air this week on May 23rd. Bovada Sportsbook is currently favoring Phillip Phillips for this year’s title at 4/13 on their American Idol Betting Odds. Jessica Sanchez comes in at 5/2.
After working for the last year on the series both singers are saying whatever happens, happens, when it comes down to the final numbers. “We’ve made it this far. Were still in the competition, and we’re still going to do our best. But whatever happens, happens,” Sanchez said of the finale. Phillips also agreed, “Yeah, whatever happens, happens. It’s not the end of the world. I’m not going to be depressed if I don’t win or anything. It’s all fun and games.” Continue reading
It’s the American Idol final this week, and it’s the first time I can say I don’t know who will be eliminated in a while. For the past few episodes, Hollie Cavanaugh bamboozled me by seeming to be the weakest singer left in the competition, and being the obvious choice to leave. She took shelter at the basement of American Idol Season 11 Betting Lines, only to survive elimination and live another day.
Every week I thought she would be gone, only to see favorites like Skylar Laine and Colton Dixon get the boot instead. Continue reading
Listen, I have nothing against Hollie Cavanaugh, but Christ that took a long time to get her off the show. I think she’s fine. Good singer. But she wasn’t going to win the show and I’m amazed how long she lasted. She had a “George Castanza’s parents” vibe, where unusual circumstances kept her lingering around for longer than needed.
She finally became a casualty this week, voted off in the semifinals to leave just three remaining. Continue reading
We finally have our top-5 and it was Hollie Cavanaugh who won the battle of the basement.
Elise Testone received the fewest fan votes, and became the eighth finalist eliminated on Season 11 of American Idol.
“American Idol means living out my dreams. My favorite part about my journey is my connections with the other contestants. These are people I may have never met, but I’m so glad I did. I want to be an inspiration for people. That is what it’s all about. That’s why they call it American Idol,” Testone said on the show. Continue reading
Ryan Seacrest spent a good chunk of Wednesday night’s American Idol show honoring Dick Clark, who’s passing at 82 came out of nowhere.
A day later, Idol lost another too soon.
Colton Dixon was surprisingly eliminated from competition, shaking up the competition the rest of the way. Dixon, who was favored to win the whole show by Bovada’s TV/Film Props this week, couldn’t be saved by the judges. Continue reading
American Idol judges were willing to do what voters weren’t on Thursday: keep Jessica Sanchez in the competition.
Despite being voted off the show by fans, Idol judges used their critical save on Sanchez keeping her in the show for at least another week.
The choice came a week after judges weren’t able to come to a consensus on DeAndre Brackensick and he was sent home. Continue reading
American Idol hopefuls Hollie Cavanagh and Elise Testone escaped by the skin of their teeth last week, avoiding elimination on Thursday night.
Jennifer Lopez’s mini crush DeAndre Brakensick was the sacraficial lamb despite having a more-consistent show althogether than Cavanah and Testone. Voters seem to be turning on Testone after a rough performance last week. Alas, she survived, but that did nothing for her (or Cavanagh’s) odds to win the entire show as both remain at the basement of American Idol Betting Odds. Continue reading
This year’s American Idol has started to show signs of the fatigue from fans that comes with running a show this long. Ratings have dipped, even though the judges are still popular among viewers. The favorite to win this year, scruffy guitarman Phillip Phillips, is getting 7/2 odds to win American Idol, the recording contract and chance of a lifetime (that 10 others have won also) by bovada.com. The man proclaimed by J. Lo to be “blessed by god”, Jeremy Rosario, is sitting completely opposite at the bottom with 30/1. Continue reading
