The 'American Idol' Top 20: Who's Going Home?
The 'American Idol' Top 20: Who's Going Home?
Abbey and I faced the same problem on American Idol this week: predicting who will be eliminated. In my case, it's always one definite and another complete toss-up. I guess you can blame that on the persisting averageness of this year's Top 20. Sure, the performances were better, but apart from the obvious frontrunners, everything is up in the air.

So, again, two girls and two guys get the boot tonight, leaving the competition to the accompaniment of tonight's musical guest, Danny Gokey. The identities of those four kids are hard to figure out exactly, but we sure have our thoughts. Now, the weekly presentation of the beliefs of a small cross-segment of Idol fans, also known as BuddyTV users like you who answer our polls and play along with our Fantasy TV thingie. An even smaller cross-section? Abbey and I, your Idol experts. I mean, there's two of us and definitely more of you!

Experts' picks for elimination:

Abbey Simmons picks:
Haeley Vaughn
Jermaine Sellers
John Park
Lacey Brown

Michelle Delamor could take Haeley's place.

Henrik Batallones picks:
Jermaine Sellers
John Park
Lacey Brown
Paige Miles

Paige is a complete toss-up: it could be Haeley Vaughn (trust the worsters won't let this happen) and it could be Didi Benami.

Hmmm. We both ended up picking the same people 75% of the time. Are we right? Are you right? Or should we expect another shocker of an elimination tonight, much like last week?
