American Idol 2013: Who's voting for Zoanette Johnson? Top 5 Girls Forecast [PHOTOS]
American Idol 2013 (Season 12) Top 10-Girls perform Tuesday for America's votes. Zoanette Johnson, who sparked nay-or-yay social media debates over her "Lion King" number last week, is set to perform. Zoanette - and the rest of the girls - will find out on Friday whether Idol viewers dig their passion and style as much as the Idol judges do.
Have you made your American Idol Top 5 Girls forecast? The girls listed below made quite an impression to the judges the past two weeks in Las Vegas. Some of them have been impressive since they first made an attempt to join Idol. (To name one: Candice Glover from Season 11)
American Idol 2013: Top 5 Girls Fearless Forecast
Who has the strongest potential to endear themselves to the 'Idol' voters? Everyone has their own predictions based on gut feel, Idol history, and undeniable X factor (among others). Here is one of the many "fearless Idol forecasts" made for fun.
American Idol 2013: Candice Glover, 23 | St. Helena Island, SC
Candice Glover's vocal prowess is a force to reckon with in the show. But she exudes such a mature vibe at 23. Here's hoping that she choose (or receive) contemporary materials to work with to connect to the younger viewers.
UPDATE: Best performance of the night, hands down. It is interesting to note that both Candice and Amber Holcomb were unable to make it through live rounds in the past Idol season. But they came back with their A-game and wowed the judges big time.
American Idol 2013: Kree Harrison, 22 | Nashville, TN
Kree Harrison's unassuming country demeanor is easy to like. She is quite easy on the eyes, too. There are moments of disappointing disconnect when she sings, but if this girl could pack in more confidence, she could win the whole thing. But then there's an issue on whether tween viewers (who makes up the big chunk of Idol voters) could identify with her. We'll soon find out.
American Idol 2013: Adriana Latonio, 17 | Anchorage, AK
Small frame, big vocals. Big smile, wow numbers. Here is one talented young lady who knows how to have fun on stage. Adriana Latonio might not be the next Jessica Sanchez (both of whom carry the Filipino music gene) but she could make an even bigger name for herself with the right song choices.
UPDATE: The forecast was originally made with the contestants' Sudden Death performances. But the Ladies' Night did not quite work for Adriana. Her spot could very possibly go to Janelle Arthur or Breanna Steer.
American Idol 2013: Angela Miller, 19 | Beverly, MA
Angela Miller rose to top contender status following her Hollywood solo (of an original composition) a couple of weeks ago. She was also one of the better singers in the past two weeks in Vegas.
American Idol 2013: Amber Holcomb, 18 | Houston, TX
Amber Holcomb is the girl who took on "My Funny Valentine" by Mitzi Green on Idol's Sudden Death round in Las Vegas. That was quite a big moment for this young lady. Here's hoping she wouldn't be the girl who couldn't do better than that one big number. She seems to carry within so much star potential.

(UPDATE: Amber Holcomb enjoyed a standing ovation from American Idol judges over a compelling Whitney Houston number. Top 5 in the bag? And don't you just love her for talking back to Idol judge Nicki Minaj that she's more than just legs?)
Zoanette Johnson is now in trouble after a mad standing ovation from the judges last week. It will be shocking if she could make it back to the show (because that would mean an outstanding contender is going home).
