TAMPA, Fla. (CBS Tampa) – Valrico’s Jeremy Rosado is predicted to advance tonight on American Idol, according to DialIdol.com.
The nineteen-year-old sang Stevie Wonder’s “Ribbon in the Sky” last night as the 13 finalists competed for America’s votes. One contestant will be eliminated tonight after the guy and girl with the lowest amount of votes is revealed. Then the three judges will decide who stays and who goes home.
DialIdol.com predicts who will advance by monitoring the busy signals on each Idols’ phone line. The website placed Rosado as third among the guys, behind Phillip Phillips and DeAndre Brackensick. However, the site stated that the Idols’ scores were very close, so Rosado could ultimately be ranked lower than he is listed.
Steven Tyler praised Rosado’s performance, saying, “Beautiful voice, velvety-smooth, high, beautiful voice.”
Rosado also received positive feedback from Jennifer Lopez, who chose Rosado as a wild-card pick last week after the teen did not receive enough votes to advance to the next round.
“I love to hear your interpretation of songs,” she said. “That was really, really beautiful.”
However, Randy Jackson disagreed with Tyler and Lopez.
“It wasn’t your best performance, this was a very difficult song,” Jackson said. “It’s the kind of song you have to put more swag in order to really make it believable.”
