So I posted earlier today about my favorite of the boys and said I would be back later with my opinions on the top 12 boys of American Idol after I actually watched the show. Tobei came home at lunch and we watched it so here I am with my opinion on each of the performers.
Clint Gamboa singing Superstitious.
I like him and think he is a great singer. Was a great kick off to the show and I see him making it far.
Jovany Barreto singing I’ll Be.
He did well. Great voice. Don’t really have any complaints except that I am sick of this song. He should be safe tonight.
Jordan Dorsey singing OMG
I can’t stand this guy. He is so full of himself and he reeks of arrogance. His performance was HORRIBLE. Awful choice of song. I love how it’s “Show us the artist you are” night then when he realizes he blew it he tells the judges that no this isn’t the kind of artist he wants to be. I really hope he goes home tonight or at least very soon.
Tim Halperin singing Come on Over
My son actually shook his head and said no to this one. I didn’t like it. Tobei didn’t like it. We fast forwarded through 75% of his performance.
Brett Loewenstern singing Light My Fire
We like this guy. He is crazy unique but he is good. He should make it pretty far. We did make fun of all the hair shaking though.
James Durbin singing You Got Another Thing Comin’
Don’t get me wrong he is good and he can sing. However his “Adam Lambert” screech is so last year and I am over it. I can’t help but think of Adam Lambert and compare them whenever I see James perform. Sorry James.
Robbie Rosen singing In the Arms of An Angel
I hate to say it because I totally have a crush on Scotty but this guy is a definite contender for winning this season. His performances have been perfect and incredible every single time.
Scotty McCreery singing Letters From Home
OK so I already posted his performance and my opinion. I will cry when he goes home. Yes I said when he goes home. Sadly America will not let him win this competition. I really hope I am wrong.
Stefano Langone singing Just The Way You Are
I Liked it! I usually hate when they sing current songs since it is too easy to compare when we just heard it on the radio 5 minutes ago. However I think he did a good job even if there was 1 or 2 spots where he was off.
Paul McDonald singing Maggie Mae
Paul has such a unique voice. Whenever he gets the right song for him it is bang on. You can also tell he had such a great time up there. I hope he is around for a while but I do think I will eventually tire of him.
Jacob Lusk singing House Is Not A Home
He is amazing. I can not say one bad thing about him. Jacob was born to sing. Keep an eye on him, he will be a name in the music industry. I don’t see him as the next American Idol nor do I see him main stream but I do see him have a music career.
Casey Abrams singing I Put A Spell On You
I like him. I didn’t really like this performance but I didn’t hate it either. Tobei sees him making top 4. Me I am not sure.
In conclusion… This is a tough season for everyone. Such amazing talent that it is going to be difficult every single week watching favorites go home. I can’t tell you who my top 3 are since we still have not seen the girls perform but I am sure it will be hard to narrow down. However the 2 boys I want to see go home based on last night are Jordan Dorsey and Tim Halperin.
So what do you think after last night? Who stands out for you and who do you want to see go home?
