Final update 3:12 PM EST. No changes to rankings. Still close between Jessica and Alex. Nobody is even close to C.J.
Updated 11:07 EST. Alex drops to 2nd most likely, but the bottom 2 call is still ambiguous.
Initial post 12:34PM EST. As always, these numbers will change somewhat as the day progresses. I will update.
At the time of this writing, a whopping 75% of the readership at MJsBigBlog thinks C.J. will be eliminated tomorrow. His WNTS scores were both through the floor, and he’s the least popular on Votefair. We’re getting into fairly shocking territory if he escapes the bottom 2, and quite surprising if he is not eliminated tomorrow. Even if he is, he’s now tied for the longest-surviving wildcard in Idol history* (joining Trenyce, George Huff, and Matt Giraud. Giraud, incidentally, had to also be saved, so maybe he only should count as 7).
Tonight we saw something of a stumble for Alex. His average WNTS score tonight is 48, the lowest he’s gotten since his misadventure with “I Don’t Want to Be” way back in the Top 12. However, it won’t take much movement in Votefair to push him back into third place in the model standings.
As of now, the model is too uncertain to make a call about the person most likely to join C.J. in the bottom 2. Jessica, Alex, and Sam all have values that are too close to one another for decent confidence. This is doubly so now that Dialidol is gone, and a new index, MJsBigBlog’s poll, has been incorporated. However, Caleb and Jena look safe.
*Clay Aiken (as pointed out in the comments) did last longer. Aiken was voted in by the public, rather than chosen by the judges, but nonetheless survived 10 votes. You be the judge.
