8. Devin Velez
He's got a great voice, so why is he so forgettable? The long and winding road of Devin's Idol travels leads him to the bottom of the viewer-vote heap every time.

7. Lazaro Arbos
Last week's Beatles cover was a total disaster — ''bottom of the pile,'' according to truth bomb-throwing Jimmy Iovine. Still, I can't rank him last because he somehow manages to keep escaping the bottom three.

6. Janelle Arthur
None of her performances have really resonated for me, but maybe, as Jimmy mentioned, there's explosiveness in her restraint. But does restraint get people voting?

5. Amber Holcomb
If last week's somewhat obscure ''She's Leaving Home'' was the wrong choice for Amber (she landed in the bottom three), you can bet she'll pick a Motown favorite everyone knows — bonus points if she goes uptempo.

4. Burnell Taylor
He knows how to twist even unfamiliar songs into his own concoctions, and Burnell keeps delivering what Keith Urban calls ''the most instantly recognizable tone'' of the group.

3. Kree Harrison
The ranking of the top three girls (Kree, Candice, Angie) seems negligible at this point until one of them falters. Kree went first last week, so she could be due for a pimp spot placement.

2. Candice Glover
She's had the best performances of the last few weeks — "I (Who Have Nothing)," "Come Together" — and should be able to dazzle with a re-arranged Motown hit. Playing it safe would be the kiss of death, but after so many wow moments, I can't see her allowing that to happen.

1. Angela Miller
After last week's slam from Jimmy on her drama-kid theatrics, mark my words: Angie's poised for a "comeback" week. (And you never even thought she was behind!)
