On Sunday’s “American Idol,” two of the Top 5 contestants were eliminated: Laci Kaye Booth and Wade Cota. Although they performed at the top of their game, in the end their three rival finalists got more of America’s votes. That leading trio of vote-getters as revealed by Ryan Seacrest are: Alejandro Aranda, Laine Hardy and Madison VanDenburg. (Vote in our ‘American Idol’ winner poll.) This result meant that Laci and Wade fell just short of making the Top 3. We asked you which of these two talents to be sent home was robbed of a place in the finale next Sunday (May 19). By a margin of 56% to 44% “(as of this writing), “American Idol” viewers favor Wade over Laci. Wade, a 27-year-old musician from Phoenix, had never been in the bottom 2 before. Conversely, Laci — a 23-year-old college student from Livingston TX — only made it to the semi-final after she inspired Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie to use their one judges save of the season at the end of the Top 6 show on May 5. That controversial decision meant that Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon was sent packing instead. Which of these artists would you most like to have seen avoid elimination and continue in the competition? If you haven’t voted in our poll yet, be sure to do so at the bottom of this post. To help you make up your mind we’ve listed the titles of the songs that each of them sang on the show as well as their celebrity duet partners.

Laci Kaye Booth is almost certain to face elimination on “American Idol” this Sunday according to the results of our poll of viewers. She only made the final five on last Sunday’s episode when Luke Bryan, Katy Perry and Lionel Richie decided to use their one judges save of the season to keep her in the competition. But she has earned only a measly 6% in our survey of “American Idol” fans heading into the Top 5 show on May 12. The other contestant joining her in the bottom two is likely to be Madison VanDenburg who merited a mere 8% in our poll results. All five singers still in the competition will take to the stage on Sunday to perform a trio of tunes. Each will sing a song from the Elton John catalog, another picked out by mentor Bobby Bones and a third in honor of Mother’s Day. Of the other three artists still in the hunt to win season 17, Wade Cota looks the most vulnerable. Wade has only 15% support. Combined, these three contestants have earned just 29% of the total tally as of this writing. Compare that to Alejandro Aranda who remains the frontrunner to win season 17 with a whopping 40% support. His closest competition, Laine Hardy, has racked up 31% of the vote to date. Who do you think will be sent home on May 12?
