Will Lazaro Arbos escape elimination once again this week on the American Idol results show? Despite some fairly poor showings the last couple of weeks and even flubbing the lyrics during last week’s group performance, he keeps managing to sneak through to the next round. He is the Houdini of this season! Or, as some are calling him, “the Sanjaya of American Idol Season 12.” Thanks, Vote for the Worst!


While we were amazed along with the rest of viewers when this Florida-based ice cream scooper opened his mouth to sing at his initial American Idol audition and had no a trace of his stutter, we feel it’s his time to go this week. And there’s no denying that this ballad-lover isn’t exactly made for the theme of “Classic Rock, No Ballads.” However, one can never underestimate the power of social media and—let’s face it—pity votes. So only time will tell if “Laz,” as he’s called, will become part of the Top Six.


Watch Lazaro Arbos perform “We Are the Champions” by Queen on this week’s Rock ‘n’ Roll (no ballads!) American Idol performances show and let us know what you think!
