    The Hippie Bus is on the way to the junk yard. Farewell any hope of making the Idol Concert tour. My guesser has been off all season.

    Mine too. I'm usually pretty good at predicting, but I'm just way off this season. Maybe because I'm not as invested in the show as I usually am.

    I did much better when we had more contestants. Maybe it's because that's when we still had throw-aways. Just about any of the top 7 could have made it to #1, and just about any of them can go at any time.

    I did it again. "Predicted" the one I wanted to go.

    At least a few of all here got at least 2 correct and in the correct order of safety which means, I think, I'll be giving up my seat on the bus.

    The good news is the company everywhere seems to be fun.

    Re: Season 11 Prediction Game

    You can only last in the bottom three for so long. You can even outlast a favorite! But in the end, the axe must fall.

    First Safe: Skylar Laine
    Second Safe: Hollie Cavanagh
    Going Home: Elise Testone

    It was a good run. Elise managed to maintain her style and last a long time. Next week we won't have the free "Elise" points to guess, but how did we guess this week?

    Week 9 Results:

    Arielflies: Jessica Sanchez, Elise Testone, Phillip Phillips = 5
    BuckeyeAddict: Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez, Elise Testone = 8
    Debb70: Joshua Ledet, Elise Testone, Jessica Sanchez = 5
    echo226: Phillip Phillips, Elise Testone, Jessica Sanchez = 5
    Fanny Mare: Phillip Phillips, Elise Testone, Hollie Cavanagh = 10
    Gutmutter: Phillip Phillips, Hollie Cavanagh, Jessica Sanchez = 7
    ilja: Joshua Ledet, Skylar Laine, Hollie Cavanagh = 10
    Jaceegirl: Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez, Elise Testone = 8
    JLuvs: Joshua Ledet, Elise Testone, Hollie Cavanagh = 10
    jsciv: Skylar Laine, Jessica Sanchez, Elise Testone = 14
    kenny2604: Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez, Elise Testone = 8
    Madison_2008: Phillip Phillips, Hollie Cavanagh, Elise Testone = 15
    mesachick: Jessica Sanchez, Hollie Cavanagh, Elise Testone = 15
    Misty8723: Hollie Cavanagh, Elise Testone, Jessica Sanchez = 10
    NFL1: Jessica Sanchez, Elise Testone, Hollie Cavanagh = 10
    Norm: Jessica Sanchez, Hollie Cavanagh, Elise Testone = 15
    r2maybs: Joshua Ledet, Hollie Cavanagh, Elise Testone = 15
    razorbacker: Jessica Sanchez, Joshua Ledet, Elise Testone = 8
    RyMac: Elise Testone, Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez = 5
    TeacherLady: Phillip Phillips, Hollie Cavanagh, Elise Testone = 15
    Tigerusty: Phillip Phillips, Hollie Cavanagh, Elise Testone = 15
    TLynnMartin: Joshua Ledet, Hollie Cavanagh, Elise Testone = 15
    TNKY: Joshua Ledet, Jessica Sanchez, Elise Testone = 8
    Vote4Makar: Joshua Ledet, Elise Testone, Hollie Cavanagh = 10
    xmaskat: Hollie Cavanagh, Jessica Sanchez, Elise Testone = 13
    zanthia: Joshua Ledet, Hollie Cavanagh, Elise Testone = 15

    Skylar's appearance shocked everyone but new participant ilja and me (woohoo!), but we had a lot of people with Hollie/Elise or Elise/Hollie, so while nobody was perfect, many people did (as Randy would say) 'aight. Top points went to Madison_2008, mesachick, Norm, r2maybs, TeacherLady, Tigerusty, TLynnMartin and zanthia.

    They were close but not quite perfect: should you make a perfect guess on any week, your name will be underlined in the standings for the rest of the contest.

    TeacherLady reclaims the top spot this week, but no lead seems safe with all of the contestants so closely matched in fan bases! Hollie/Elise combos also lifted norm and zanthia and broke the 4th place tie. Though there was a HUGE shuffle, nobody actually left the top 10, but the margin between 10 and 11 (me!) is only one point. Watch out Top 10, I might break into you for the first time!!

    Next week will be Top 5. Sometimes they do a Bottom 2, but sometimes they do a Bottom 3. Therefore please continue to guess a bottom 3: if they only call two out then your "First Safe" guess will be ignored.

    Week 9 Standings

    1: TeacherLady - 127
    2: kenny2604 - 123
    3: xmaskat - 120
    3: norm - 120
    5: zanthia - 118
    6: TNKY - 117
    6: NFL1 - 117
    8: BuckeyeAddict - 115
    9: TLynnMartin - 114
    10: echo226 - 112

    11: jsciv - 111
    12: Tigerusty - 110
    13: Gutmutter - 106
    14: Vote4Makar - 105
    15: RyMac - 102
    16: r2maybs - 101
    17: razorbacker - 97
    18: Misty8723 - 95
    19: Arielflies - 88
    20: mesachick - 86
    21: Madison_2008 - 73
    22: Fanny Mare - 68
    23: mindy384 - 65
    24: JLuvs - 61
    25: Debb70 - 47
    26: Helenmaco2 - 43
    27: Jaceegirl - 33

    Wow! I can't believe it! I don't think I've been in first place since (very briefly) 2 years ago!

    Thanks, jsciv!

    Congratulations, TeacherLady! I enjoyed my ride on the bus, but now I'm sinking further and further down the list. This is a hard year to predict!
    Count your blessings!

    I'm so far behind now that not only will I not get a seat on the bus, but they are refusing to even let me on the same street as the bus station. I'll have to watch it depart from a roof top far far away.

    Awwww. I'll share because you're so nice to keep doing this !

    Or ... maybe we can put an extra "jump seat" on the bus?

    Not to worry though, I'm sinking fast!

    Congratulations TeacherLady ... and any lessons on how to get there will be appreciated
