'American Idol' head-scratcher: Will the judges use their save on Alyssa Raghu during Queen week?

Things are not looking good for “the sauce.” After failing to earn the support of the “ American Idol ” audience during Top 14 week, Alyssa Raghu had to be saved by judge Katy Perry .

Now, on the eve of Top 8 night, Alyssa once again seems to be on the bubble as she has leading 1/4 odds of being eliminated, according to Gold Derby’s exclusive predictions .

[WATCH] This 16-year-old high school student from Orlando, Florida is no stranger to being eliminated, as she failed to make it into the live shows last year.

However, she grew leaps and bounds in Season 17, with Luke Bryan praising her for “coming back and retooling and over-hauling [her] persona.” One of her biggest risks so far this year was taking on Katy’s song “The One That Got Away” in front of the pop star herself, for which she earned strong marks.

In our recent “American Idol” video recap , fellow Gold Derby editor Susan Wloszczyna and contributor Denton Davidson agreed with the consensus that Alyssa is in danger during Queen week.

We also worried that the judges might use their save haphazardly and then later regret it if a front-runner like Alejandro Aranda or Jeremiah Lloyd Harmon happens to place in the bottom in a later week.
