Gambling911.com is here with your American Idol predictions as to who might be going home this week (April 15, 2009 results show).  Last week we got it right by the way.  This week's theme:  Movie Music.

Adam Lambert:  We know he's not going home.  He scored once again with "Born to be Wild" and looked as if he were born on the stage.  Lambert would have woken up any Oscar show with that heart stopper, sounding so much like Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin.  Lambert's version of "Born to be Wild" was the second most searched for of the night.  Lambert was the favorite coming into Tuesday night's show at BetUS.com.

A lot of critics were suggesting that Kris Allen had the best overall performance of the evening despite judge Randy Jackson's own criticism of him. 

Allen performed "Falling Slowly" from the film "Once" and scored the single highest search count in Google Trends.

Lil Rounds probably will not be going home this week as she closed the show and "The Rose" was the third most searched for American Idol song of the evening, but that's only half the story since a lot of people were searching for specific lyrics within the song such as "Some Say Love It Is A River".  And "The Rose Song" was also getting decent inquiries.  One of my personal favorite songs and I didn't care for her rendition of it, but many of those Idol watchers unfamiliar with this Bette Midler classic might very well have.  It wasn't horrible either, which should help her chances. 

Anoop Desai is probably safe and deservingly so because the song he chose to sing was a cheesy one from the Robin Hood film, yet he made it sound pretty good and his vocals shined through.  It's not one of Bryan Adam's best.  Sorry.  This was the 4th most searched for song of the night on Google.  The Robin Hood film was also heavily searched Tuesday evening.

Endless Love was the 5th most searched for song of the night, sung by Danny Gokey.  It wasn't great but Gokey has some star power, a decent enough following and it was probably good enough to keep him on past this week.

The most blasé performances of the night go to Allison Iraheta singing "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing" by Aerosmith, which to some of us felt forced down our throats, not to mention it wasn't the most original song choice in the world.

Matt Gerard is going home, however.  He sang "Have You Ever Loved a Woman?" by Bryan Adams from "Don Juan de Marco" and that performance received very little interest, plus it just wasn't very good.

I think we'll be seeing Allison and definitely Matt in the bottom three.  There is a toss up as to whether Danny Gokey or Anoop Desai will be appearing as well.  Anoop seems to lack star power, which was evidenced by his near elimination last week after a decent version of Cyndi Lauper's "True Colors".
