American Idol 2012 (Season 11): Hollie Cavanagh Spoilers and Predictions

Hollie Cavanagh is an American singer who originally came from the UK. She tried out for Season 10 and was cut in the last round (the Green Mile) before the voting rounds. At the time, Jennifer Lopez said she had the potential to be the best singer in the whole group. According to TheIdolPad spoiler site, Hollie is back for Season 11 and has made the Top 42.

From what I have seen, this is a rather overrated singer. I have no idea why Jennifer Lopez said that, and I predict Cavanagh has a very slim chance of actually winning. This may seem harsh, but the reality is her tone is borderline terrible at times, approaching nails on a chalkboard. And there does not seem to be any personal style or dynamics to her singing. She just screams notes.

Now, these comments are based on her Season 10 auditions. Has Hollie gotten better in one year's time? Of course, that is possible. So it's important to keep an open mind. In fact, the YouTube clip below shows Hollie singing Adele's "Rolling in the Deep." It does sound like she has developed more vocal control, and there is some variation in her voice instead of pointless loud singing.

At any rate, based on comments made last year on the show, it is likely Hollie will make the voting rounds, completing that comeback story that Idol seems to be looking for in Hollie Cavanagh. That is likely why she is being brought back in the first place (to create a storyline among the many storylines told on American Idol). It's highly doubtful she is being picked as a producer favorite.

Will she win?

Hollie seems to have improved, but she does not seem to be much of a musician. It still sounds like karaoke. On the plus side, at least she does have decent power, which is more than can be said about a lot of Idol singers. But power has never won Idol. Jennifer Hudson is one of the most powerful singers in the world volume wise. She didn't even make the Top 5. If I could bet money AGAINST Hollie winning, I would bet any amount that she won't win.

Skylar Laine deserves to be on the top four idols than Hollie Cavanagh, it's not just the looks that count... It should be the voice bec it's a singing competition not a beauty contest.. Judges should be more truthful when it comes to their judging bec they are confusing all the voters on who to vote and who really deserves to win... They should frankly say to Hollie that she's not a good singer at all.. I am betting on Jessica Sanchez to win idol :)

Jimmy, I'm with you. Her voice is inconsistent, and though they seemed to have (for the most part) corrected her pitch issues, she still sounds like she is screaming, and I generally feel nothing when she's singing. She still doesn't fully connect with the music. I don't thinks she's bad per se, but I would never want to just listen to her album. She is above average karaoke. For me. Too strident for more than one song at a time. She wears my ears out.

100% agree!!! she was so overrated and I don't see or hear any special tone in her voice.. She's trying hard and just know how to sing.. her voice is most of the time out of tune..come on guys listen to it carefully.. She sounds awfull and trying hard so much

Jimmy Boyd, I super disagree on your article. Hollie has an amazing, clear, angelic voice.

I have been a big fan of Holly from the start. She comes across as such a nice genuine girl, almost like a carrie underwood type, and she is cute as a button. I like the fact that she dresses quite decently for her age and not choose trashy outfits to make a statement. Nice girls do win and win or lose, i remain a big fan of Holly Cavanaugh.

I think Hollie has an angelical voice. She has the look of an American idol winner! She has the entire package that takes to be an American Idol super star. You go Hollie. I totally love you and know you will go very far in this competition.

Hollie is an amazing singer. If you don't think she has what it takes, please search you tube for her version of Adele's "Don't You Remember", and I can rest assured that you will definitely change your opinion of her.
