TV discovery app Peel on Wednesday launched Idol Interactive Experience, a second-screen engagement platform that lets viewers "cheer" or "boo" contestants and judges in real time.

Data from last night's top 12 performance show reveal which singers are most likely to be eliminated during tonight's results show. Leading the chorus of boos were not-so-stellar performances from Heejun Han, DeAndre Brackensick and Shannon Magrane.
The graphic above depicts the intensity level of cheers (in blue) and boos (in orange) for singers as they performed, or as in Jermaine Jones's case, as he was disqualified for his recently surfaced criminal past.

Peel users pressed buttons on their iOS devices to express how they felt about the performances and judges' comments. And before host Ryan Seacrest even opened voting to the masses, users got to see the sentiment results from other Idol viewers.
For example, the results updated in real time as the contestants sang and the judges gave their critiques. Hollie Cavanagh topped the Idol Interactive Experience's leaderboard for her rendition of Celine Dion's "The Power of Love" (pictured left).
Front-runner Jessica Sanchez -- who wooed America last week with Whitney Houston's "I Will Always Love You" -- didn't impress the judges this week with "Turn the Beat Around," but the Peel community still put her in third place just behind Cavanagh and Joshua Ledet.
Interestingly, judge Jennifer Lopez garnered the most cheers of the night but also the most boos out of the three judges.
Fellow judge Randy Jackson got the most love with 70% positive rating.
“We think we’re still just in the first inning here as far as what social TV is capable of,” Peel’s vice president of marketing Scott Ellis recently told Mashable.
Mashable will be bringing you these data every week until a winner is announced, but do you think a tool like this can accurately predict who will be eliminated? Sound off in the comments.
