There is no doubt in our mind going into our American Idol recap tonight that it will one of the guys headed out the door before the evening is over. In fact, we are pretty strong in our belief that Devin Velez will be the one who was eliminated on American Idol tonight.


However, we have had the voters kick us in the teeth before when everyone was absolutely convinced a person was going to go home. So we would not be at all surprised if, out of nowhere, we had a shocking elimination on the Top 7 American Idol results show.


Even though it seems extremely likely our prediction of who got voted off American Idol tonight will come true, we aren’t counting our chickens yet. American Idol results shows are notoriously difficult to predict every year. Sometimes every blogger, fan poll and critic on the Internet will agree about which contestant should be the one who was eliminated on American Idol this week — and yet the votes come in, and that person not only isn’t voted off, but ends not even being in the bottom three!


Maybe Lazaro Arbos will get kicked off the show as he deserves to be, even though he is beloved by hordes of followers. Or perhaps Amber Holcomb or Janelle Arthur will suddenly find out there are too many girls competing for the same votes. Maybe everyone will be so wrapped up in the guys shoving Lazaro under the bus last night for not knowing his lines in the group number, they’ll forget to vote for frontrunners Angie Miller, Kree Harrison or Candice Glover and all hell will break loose on the American Idol elimination results show.
