Three people in the bottom 3 who had never been there before. It’s only happened twice in 57 before (3% of the time):
Season 4, Final 9, Scott Savol, Nikko Smith, Vonzell Solomon
Season 5, Final 9, Elliott Yamin, Paris Bennett, Mandisa
I’m inclined to say that model could never have predicted that, but the system clearly needs a lot more refinement. Part of the problem is that the ratings were based on a few individuals, instead of a broad base survey. I’ll rerun the numbers when those numbers become available.
Still, just a shocking result. Without having seen the show, I can’t believe it.
