In a month's time, American Idol will be over. We don't mean the entire series (though, if we're being honest, things don't look particularly good for the show and its staff), but as of Wednesday, May 21, we'll be saying goodbye to Idol Season 13.
Who will our newest champion be? We have our pick but to get there we still have to whittle down the competition. It's a painful process but a necessary evil for a reality TV competition show.
Last night the judges and America got treated to two songs per Top 6 contestant, with one going country and the other a little more rock. A few of the contestants had real standout moments (coughCaleb Johnsoncough) while others didn't quite wow on other number.
Based on last night's two-hour show, we think we know who's going home during tonight's elimination episode to reveal the Top 5. It'll be a 30-minute show so, like ripping off a band-aid, it'll be quick and, we hope, not too painful for the parties involved. Expect us to get a little teary-eyed though. With only six contestants left, saying goodbye to anyone is tough at this point!
Agree with our picks for the winner and tonight's eliminated contestant? Think we're totally off base? Tell us in the comments below and check back with Wetpaint Entertainment tonight when the show gets going at 9 p.m. on Fox.
