American Idol – Top 13


They keep saying this is the best talent ever on American Idol, but I just don’t see it.  I mean, there are some great singers among this baker’s dozen.  But I can already pick out the Top 6 — Casey, Jacob, James, Naima, Pia, & Thia.  Scotty could push his way in there though.  So here are my thoughts on last night’s performances.

Lauren Alaina – Any Man of Mine (Shania Twain)

Yes, you’re nervous.  But don’t make this into a karaoke performance.  BTW, wat the hell are you wearing.  Oh, and QUIT SCREAMING!

Casey Abrams – With A Little Help From My Friends (The Beatles)

Very comfortable on stage.  Another perfect song for your voice.

Ashthon Jones – When You Tell Me That You Love Me (Diana Ross)

Girl, you look amazing!  But quit the “Heys.”  It sounded a little forced.  And it wasn’t up to par with Diana Ross.

Paul McDonald – Come Pick Me Up (Ryan Adams)

Still quirky.  Didn’t feel much for the song.  VFTW-approved.

Pia Toscano – All By Myself (Eric Carmen/Celine Dion)

Took a drub song and make it good.  Great outfit except for that cape.  Who do you think you are – Batgirl?

James Durbin – Maybe I’m Amazed (Paul McCartney)

I dunno.  I mean, this was a really really really good performance.  But James is one of two performers I expect greatness from every week.  He’s raised the bar so high!

Haley Reinhart – Blue (Leann Rimes)

Ehhh.  In a word, KARAOKE!  Are you yodelling?

Jacob Lusk – I Believe I Can Fly (R. Kelly)

Wow!  This is a big ass song!  A few minor off notes, but it was absolutely amazing.

Thia Megia – Smile (Charlie Chaplin/ Michael Jackson)

What an amazing voice for a 15 year old.  Loved the first part of the song.  The second part was only okay.

Stefano Langone – Lately (Stevie Wonder)

Like Stefano, and LOVE Stevie Wonder!  But not sure about this arrangement.  But homeboy is having a great time on stage.

Karen Rodriguez – I Could Fall in Love (Selena)

Honey, hit the notes.  The right ones.

Scotty McCreery – The River (Garth Brooks)

Started off great, but went a little karaoke.  Looks like you are getting a little cocky.  But you’re safe.

Naima Adedapo – Umbrella (Rihanna)

Girl got some moves!  Acted like a fool up on that stage.  Like Jacob, a few minor off notes, but damn.  Work it girl!

BOTTOM THREE: Ashton, Lauren, Karen.
