Who will be the first to go?

This Associated Content story predicts Michael will make it into the Top 10.

"The producers threw viewers a curve by allowing 13 performers to advance rather than the expected 12. Eight guys and five gals moved on after the preliminary rounds and the wild card selections. Who will be the next American Idol will not be decided for several weeks, but someone is going home this week. Who will be the first to get the bad news?

Before we get to the people in danger in week number one, let's take a quick look at who is 'safe' for at least the first five eliminations. Among the guys, Danny Gokey, Anoop Desai and Scott Macintyre should be safe bets to advance to the final eight. This baring any horrible performance or song selections. On the edge of this upper circle we have Adam Lambert and Michael Sarver ready to move in should one of the top three falter. Among the girls, Lil Rounds should have no trouble avoiding elimination, nor should Allison Iraheta. Alexis Grace should be safe, but she is on the borderline and will need a strong performance to insure her slot.

In danger in week one among the guys are Kris Allen and Jorge Nunez. They both have talent but at this level of competition I am not certain they will have enough to draw in the needed votes. Jasmine Murray is in the most danger among the girls, mostly because of her age and the fact she has seemed to struggle with nerves in the earlier rounds. Riding the fence will be both Megan Joy and Matt Giraud. Song selection and theme will be key to both of these having a chance to advance. Megan should last one or two rounds longer than Matt, but with a poor performance all could change.

The first to be voted out on American Idol Season 8 will be - Kris Allen. Next to go will be Jasmine Murray followed by Jorge Nunez."
