    It's almost definite (in my mind) that no one is going home this week. What they'll probably do is add the scores from this week to those from next week, and the combined lowest score will go home next week.

    I said the exact same thing to my wife last night. It kind of violates the spirit of the theme.

    They announced the finale will be 16 May. So it looks like there will be a week where no one goes home, right?

    I don't think anyone was surprised by that outcome.

    I really do believe that situation with the judges hurt Amber quite a bit. Now she and Candace will have to knock it out of the park next week. Since they are starting at a deficit right out of the gate next week one of them will be going home.

    Pardon the slippage of my memory, but in the past, when the Judges' Save had been used, weren't there TWO eliminations the following week? So over the course of the two week period (save week and post-save week) there were still two people gone anyway?

    Maybe I'm not remembering that right, but in that frame of mind, that explanation just seemed squishy to me. Sure, it acomplishes their goal if there is only one elimination last week, bit it just didn't sift through my brain right. :shrugs:

    No - you are right - they did do that.

    I do wonder who would have gone home last night though.

    Angie was my favorite since she did her original song at the piano and then she started to slip pretty badly.
    I'm kinda hoping she continues this streak and wins.

    I have thought her biggest competition was Candice and if she (Candice) had gone home last night this no one goes home really could effect the final outcome.

    Don't underestimate Kree. If she can get the country vote behind her then she has a very good chance at winning.

    Originally, yes, but last year, someone was disqualified after the finals started and they didn't bring anybody back to replace him, so they only eliminated one after the save.

    What surprised me was, Ryan gave what was pretty much the actual reason for the "save" (they had scheduled the show based on the assumption that the save would be used), rather than invent something ("Well, because the Boston tragedy might have affected the voting..."). Remember, the show still has never mentioned on the air that not everybody who attends an audition ends up singing in front of the judges.

    But now that they have mentioned the "built-in free pass", are they going to bring it up next season once the save opportunities begin? It seems to me that this becomes something to consider when deciding whether or not to use the save.
