We've seen enough of her in the competition to know how well she sings which is why she has such a huge fan base. What I gleemed from watching all these years is that when you get to this point of the competition performances only matter in the final when you get new people watching who will vote according to the how they judged what they saw.Originally Posted by dpiranha;2362855;
ETA: Last year could have been an exception with Katharine since you had some people that disliked her so intensely that they would vote for someone they didn't care for just to get her out but her Black Horse and Cherry Tree and Somewhere Over the Rainbow performances kept her in the competition. That is the only season I've noticed that happen. I can't see anyone left in the competition this year that's so despised that anyone would purposely vote against.
