The first week of Hollywood is over, and with a significant part of the pre-competition footage shown, I can begin to make some off-the-cuff predictions about who will advance from the Top 24 to the finals based on pre-exposure. Obviously, there are spoilers in this post, since the Top 24 has yet to be revealed.
I’ll update these as the Hollywood phase plays out.
Technical note: Predictions are based on outcomes of previous years, considering outcome to be dependent solely on screen time during the audition and Hollywood rounds. These predictions should be considered to be unscientific. Do not gamble based on these.
