Names in green are predicted safe. Names in red are predicted in the bottom 3. Names in yellow are undecided. Any person not in green is not considered safe by the model. The most probable bottom 3 is Paul, Devin, and Burnell. However, anybody on the list (except Angie) being in the bottom 3 would not be shocking. That being said, the model projects Kree, Candice, and Angie are safe at the 95% confidence level.
I’m happy that Janelle just made it on to the list of people considered safe. Though no fan of country, I loved her rendition of I Will.
Lazaro Devin is just too close to call [after updating the numbers, Devin and Lazaro swapped places].
In any case, we have probably the clearest dichotomy of male/female scores ever. All 4 of the highest probabilities are men, all the lowest are women. Angie continues to be heavily favored, despite what I thought to be an underwhelming outing this week.
Paul and Devin were in the bottom 3 last week, and I think (and the model concurs) they will be again this week. Update: Devin has been moved into uncertain territory.
I get the feeling that we’re kind of in a holding pattern while we burn off some of these cannon fodder men. What a better show this would have been if we had 6 or even 7 women in the Top 10. Other than Lazaro, I don’t know that I’ve seen a lot of popular sentiment toward any of the men.
