Haley Reinhart avoided being in the bottom three last week on American Idol Season 12 so maybe she is starting to find her way and settle into a groove. On the other hand Scotty McCreery just keeps rolling along like a deep voiced train barreling down the tracks. This week is Elton John week which should provide another challenge to Scotty.

Scotty McCreery has been chugging along through the competition with hardly a bump in the road. He seems like a genuinely nice guy and he has a great voice. He shamelessly loves country music and finds a way to bring his style to whatever he sings. He has to be among the favorites to win American Idol. This week the producers once again remain tight lipped about who is singing what song so we are left to guess. I would like to see Scotty sing “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.” It is a song that is in a lower key so his voice should fit it well. It is a big song to tackle – an iconic song. But Scotty McCreery’s voice is different enough that he should be able to make it his own and he can afford to take a risk without worrying about being voted out.

Things haven’t gone as smoothly for Haley Reinhart. She has struggled and found herself in the bottom three a few times, but she has been listening to the judges, taking advice and working hard and it seems to be paying off. I think she has a pretty good voice and a lot of potential. I look for her to put her jazzy, sometimes raspy voice to work on “I Guess That’s Why They Call it The Blues.” It is a song that she should be able to find emotion in and that could allow Haley Reinhart to shine.

These are just my predictions, you will have to tune in tonight at 8PM on FOX to see who sings what songs and how well they do this week on American Idol Season 12.
