Who will go home on American Idol next week? The voters have already shown us they aren’t always going to do what they think they will. We thought for certain there was no way Paul Jolley would make the Season 12 Top 10, for example — but he did! Even so, we are going out on a limb to make our American Idol predictions about who will go home next week and who will make the Top 9.
 
In case you haven’t gotten caught under a rock, the elite Top 10 of American Idol 2013 was chosen on Thursday night. And, as Randy Jackson seems to say on an annual basis, this is the best season yet. Unlike other years, however, we may actually agree with him -- at least when it comes to those amazing season 12 Idol girls.
 
Unfortunately, while we may be in love with the talent this year, the viewers at large don’t seem to be, as American Idol ratings continue to be pretty lousy and some bloggers are even calling this season the death of Idol. Even so, we’re rather fond of the finalists this year for the most part, and hope more fans will start tuning in now that we’ve made it to the most exciting part of the season.

Here are the lucky ten who now get to go on the American Idols LIVE! Tour this summer. And don’t be surprised if you catch them looking extra snazzy next week, as their stylists will be working their magic:

Paul Jolley
Burnell Taylor
Curtis Finch, Jr
Devin Velez
Lazaro Arbos
Janelle Arthur
Candice Glover
Angie Miller
Amber Holcomb
Kree Harrison

Next week, the live shows start back up with a performance by the Top 10 on Wednesday, March 13, on FOX (8 PM-10 PM CT). And those who have 2-hour-show-burnout will be glad to know that the results show on Thursday, March 14, will only be one hour (8 PM-P PM CT). Not only that, but Thursday will be the night Season 11 American Idol winner Phillip Phillips will perform “Gone, Gone, Gone,” and Bon Jovi will guest star with a single off their new album.

As for who will go home on American Idol next week, our original inclination was to say Paul, as he’s had more lives than a cat during his American Idol run. However, he’s acquired a solid fan base, so we think it could be Curtis or Amber, despite their talent.

Who do you think could be in trouble of going home next week?
