‘American Idol’ Top 9 predictions: C.J. Harris will be eliminated

It’s “I’m With the Band” week on “American Idol” and according to our predictions, the singer who’ll be trading in his studio band for a band-aid is C.J. Harris.

Poor C.J. is no stranger to being amongst Gold Derby’s predictions for who will be eliminated.

During Top 13 week he was in third place to go home with 15/2 odds, for Top 12 week he was in first place to be eliminated with 13/5 odds, for Top 11 week he placed second-worst with 5/1 odds, and just last week he was third place to get the boot with 13/2 odds.

In fact, most weeks C.J. and M.K. Nobilette flip-flopped on our charts for who you thought would be going home. And since M.K.’s ouster came last week, it only makes sense for you to rally around C.J. again for your elimination prediction.

Wednesday night, C.J. performed The Steel Drivers’ “If It Hadn’t Been For Love” and got mostly negative reviews from the judges. (Watch his performance below.)

Keith Urban remarked, “All I would ask is be careful that you don’t confuse the sound of expressing with the feeling of expressing.” Jennifer Lopez said, “Again, with you, C.J., it’s going to be about consistency.” And Harry Connick Jr. reiterated, “You can hear, C.J. I know you have good ears. You have to work on your pitch.”

If C.J. does manage to squeak by with America’s votes yet again, the person who you’re predicting to come in second place is Majesty Rose (13/5 odds), while your third-place prediction goes to Dexter Roberts (4/1 odds). Majesty has already been in the bottom three twice before, while Dexter was in the bottom three just once, last week.
