American Idol Top 8 Season 13 predictions entertainment news

When Ryan Seacrest flashed early poll results to "American Idol" voting on Wednesday's show, something seemed odd. Contestants with low support had just received raves for their musical performances from the "American Idol" judges.

Caleb Johnson ranked third out of four contestants evaluated by "American Idol" viewers over age 21 and he was in dead last among voters under 21 in the poll. But Jennifer Lopez declared his performance of "Chain of Fools" "perfect" and Keith Urban swooned, "You're a blues warrior! Soul conqueror! Rock and roll viking!"

Alex Preston was also dangling in the bottom rungs of those polls even though that notorious curmudgeon Harry Connick Jr. praised him for singing his own tune: "I like the fact that you did an original and I liked the arrangement. You were shaking that bravado out!" Keith Urban added: "Great job, Alex!"

C.J. Harris ranked third out of four choices in the poll of "Idol" fans under 21, but better (second place) with the over-21 crowd. After he sang "Soul Shine," Jennifer Lopez gushed, "That sounded so soulful and heartful!" Connick called his perf a "really nice job." Keith Urban said "good job."
