'American Idol' Predictions: Which 5 Girls are Going Home?

It's Rush Week on American Idol , which means the season 13 contestants are performing live for the very first time. There were plenty of nerves to go around on Tuesday night when the girls took to the stage. Did anyone rise to the occasion? Who fell under pressure? And who's going home on Thursday?   Out of the 15 girls in the Top 31, only 10 were chosen by the judges to perform. The biggest shocker was Kenz Hall being cut. This doesn't make any sense to me because she's one of the best this year -- how do you get rid of someone like her so soon? Can the producers change the rules and give her another chance? At the very least, I hope she's able to audition again next year. //www.buddytv.com/articles/american-idol/american-idol-predictions-whic-52638.aspx
