Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season XIV Top 3 Show: Song Choices From Scott Borchetta, Judges and Hometowns 


 American Idol Season XIV Top 4 Singers Picture Credit: American Idol

Can this show be more confusing?  

This week’s show is a Top 3 show but 4 singers will be acknowledged Wednesday evening. Well, until 1 is eliminated based on last week’s votes, therefore removing all the wind from his or sails.

Can some one stop the madness known as American Idol Season XIV?  Performance and Results in one night seems more costly to my mind, especially since 4 singers visited their hometowns last week.  This honor is usually reserved for the Top 3.  However, since the voting results have not yet revealed its pretty face, we have no idea who the eliminated singer will be. Oh!

I am assuming they will unceremoniously “dump” the eliminated contestant at the top of Wednesday’s show? 

That was quite the mess last week when sweet, talented Tyanna Jones was given the ‘ole heave ho last week before she even had a chance to open her mouth to sing. Why abolish the Twitter Save now?  Seems sketchy to me. And such a waste of time, money and resources, especially with the hometown visits built into this week’s  budget. 

No matter how you cut it, Results before or after the Performances really, really stinks big time!   Results before the show puts a damper on the rest of the show and Results at the end of the show create additional nervous tension for the singers. 

Anyway, I am here to wish Clark, Jax, Nick and Rayvonn the very best of luck this week.  They ( well 3 of them) will be performing three songs: one selected by Scott Borchetta, one selected by the Judges and their Personal Hometown Pick

American Idol hits your TV screen at 8:00 PM on Wednesday, May 6th on Fox. 

So, which singers will be in the Top 3?  One thing I know for sure – two of them will be Jax and Nick.  I would be shocked if this was not the case. They seem to have a steady stream of support behind them, one that keeps growing.

  1. OK, I have not been following AI this year much at all except at the very beginning (or close to the beginning) and was impressed by Jax (admittedly probably to some extent because she’s from my home state of NJ). I just watched “Only Human” and have to ask this question: why oh why can AI not get a female back-up singer who can actually sing? The one backing up Jax was AWFUL. I remember Siobhan Magnus having this same problem. Aarrrggghhhhh.
