On Monday, American Idol judge Randy Jackson spilled his favorite four contestants left in the Top 6 to the hosts of The Talk. No surprise, Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez made Randy’s cut, as did Skylar Laine and Joshua Ledet. We guess that leaves Elise Testone and Hollie Cavanagh out in the cold.

Despite his 11 years of Idol judging history, Randy admits he doesn’t have all the answers. About Colton Dixon’s elimination last week, he said, “Everybody was shocked that Colton went home last week... I think sometimes people forget to vote.”

Although he wishes the judges had another save, he explained it’s ultimately not up to them who wins American Idol. Said Randy, “We want the public to choose, that’s the whole idea.”
