‘American Idol’ Top 8 predictions: Alyssa Raghu and Walker Burroughs will be eliminated on Queen Night

Alyssa Raghu is all but certain to face elimination on “American Idol” this Sunday according to the results of our poll of viewers. She was the last artist revealed to make the Top 8 on last Sunday’s Disney Night episode. And she has earned only a measly 2% in our survey of “American Idol” fans heading into Queen Night on April 28.

The other contestant joining her in the bottom two is likely to be Walker Burroughs who merited a mere 3% in our poll results. Each can only avoid elimination if they are saved by judges Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie who can invoke this power just one time in season 17.

All eight singers still in the competition will take to the stage on Sunday to sing a song from the back catalogue of the band Queen and then do duets with each other on classic movie tunes. Of the other six, Laci Kaye Booth and Madison VanDenburg look the most vulnerable. Laci has only 6% support while Madison is at 8%. Combined, these four contestants have earned just 19% of the total tally as of this writing.

Compare that to Laine Hardy who has racked up 22% of the vote. But even that impressive standing in our poll results Laine is dwarfed by Alejandro Aranda who remains the frontrunner to win season 17 with a whopping 39% support. The other two contestants — Wade Cota and Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon — are at 11% and 10% respectively.
