We’re now down to the Top 4 finalists on American Idol 2013 and predicting who is going to win it all just became a whole lot more difficult. All four of the remaining ladies in the competition are amazing singer and performers. No matter who goes home next week, it’s going to be something of a shock.

 

On American Idol tonight, we finally bid a fond farewell to country cutie Janelle Arthur. We had high hopes for Janelle early on in the season, but as the finals progressed, she just couldn’t quite raise herself up to the level of the other ladies in the competition. The final straw sealing her fate may well have been when she sang a duet with fellow country singer Kree Harrison. When compared voice to voice and face to face, Janelle fell flat while Kree soared.

 

Even though her elimination in the American Idol 2013 results tonight was inevitable, we still feel bad to see Janelle go this week. Especially when the judges could have saved her and didn’t — that has to hurt! Janelle’s bubbly personality was infectious and her old school country voice was always a pleasure to listen to. Hopefully some smart record producer out there will snatch her up and let her loose on Nashville with her bright smile and guitar in hand.

 

While we did like Janelle, we personally think she did deserve to go home this week. We want to know if you agree? Or not? Let us know what you think below!
