The pulse on this week’s American Idol Season 11 Top 6 contestants finds two clear front runners in total fan count, while the bottom four are neck and neck in overall fan popularity based on Facebook likes and Twitter followers. Both Jessica Sanchez and Phillip Phillips continue to exhibit a significant lead over the remaining contestants, though they are just about even with each other on Facebook likes with Jessica enjoying a fairly large lead over Phillip in Twitter followers. Of course, total count is likely not as significant as one might think in American Idol voting, as last week showed us, with the elimination of overall fan count frontrunner, Colton Dixon.
Clearly, the week to week changes that occur in fan count may be the more important factor. Based on changes from last week’s American Idol Social Media Scorecard (SMS), Hollie Cavanagh had the lowest gain in overall popularity, with a 15.5% SMS gain, as compared to Phillip Phillips who’s fan base increased by 22.6%.
