We have to say, unlike in the case of the girls, none of these results seem all that shocking. In our earlier predictions, the only one we had wrong was we thought it was the end of the road for Lazaro, and that Gurpreet would be in the Top 20.
The judges have really loved Gurpreet all along, and Lazaro had a few missteps during Hollywood Week. He does have the compelling backstory of having a stutter since he was six years old, so this could also factor in big time when it comes time for the viewers to vote.
If you take a look at the song choice list from our spoilers below, it’s interesting to note that everyone who sang an older song went home, while those who took on a more contemporary number went through to the next round. Contestants take note, as this could be the key to your success!
