I’m proud of myself: I called the final four exactly. It wasn’t that tough, though.
Team Christina: Frenchie Davis vs. Beverly McClellan. Who has more heart? Beverly. She got the votes. Easy call in my mind. Christina on her judges’ score wimps out with a 50/50. Viewers gave Beverly 57% of the vote.
Team Adam: Casey Weston vs. Javier Colon. I actually like Casey better but Javier has an air of inevitability to him. He wins. He gives Javier 65/35. Hey, at least he made a stand! Javier won hands down with the public, gaining 73% of the vote.
Team Cee Lo: Nakia vs. Vicci Martinez. Nakia is good but Vicci is a step better. She is going to win this in my mind. He gives Nakia 51/49. Vicci stomped Nakia in the public vote, winning 75%.
Team Blake: Dia Frampton vs. Xenia. Easy call. Dia has the it factor. Xenia has the voice but simply lacks the other elements. He wimps out like Christina and gives them each 50/50. This was the closest race with the public. Dia won 56%.
This is the first competitive show I’ve ever seen to give out such exact voting percentages like that. (”Idol” has sporadically thrown out percentages but rarely.)
I like this final four although I would probably take Nokia over Javier if the teams were set up differently.
