So the Top 31 will become the Top 20 this week prior to any performances. I'd thought I'd bring up this thread so we could predict which 5 women and which 5 dudes will get the axe. This is an extremely disappointing drama laden move at the 11th hour. Plus, whichever of Neco and Ben survive pretty much gets an automatic pass, which is kind of unfair. No way they'll cut someone America just voted in.
What I think should happen:
Men - Ethan, Emmanuel, Jordan, Spencer, one of Casey/Briston to combat the glut of both Alt. WGWGs and Country WGWGs
Women - Austin, Kristen, Marialle, Emily, Andrina/Bria (the women are harder to cut)
What I think will actually happen:
Men - Ethan, Jordan, Caleb, one of Briston/Alex, one of George/Maurice
Women - Jillian, MK (grrr, this one will make me mad), Andrina, Emily, Malaya (this one will make me mad too)
Now I get to hope Idol doesn't go nuts and cut any of Majesty, Jena, Sam, Dexter, CJ, Jess, Malcolm, and Briana. I think Brandy's a bit of a lock since she's the only country female left. I hope MK, Malaya and Alex manage to survive.
I will deal with Emmanuel if Jordan goes, and the opposite is true. For the love of my ears do not keep both of these guys in the Top 20.
Based on what we've seen, my Top 13 would be:
Jessica, Jena, Majesty, Briana, Brandy, Dexter, CJ, Sam, Alex, Malcolm, Malaya, MK, and either Andrina or Ben.
