Another night of American Idol and tonight it was the top 12 girls. Since I am posting right after the show aired there will be no YouTube videos. Check out the American Idol contestants page if you need to tie faces to names like I usually do at the beginning of seasons.
Ta-Tynisa Wilson singing Only Girl
She can definitely perform and she showed that tonight. However I found she was more a performer than a singer. I agree with Randy about not feeling it.
Naima Adedapo singing Summertime
The first thing out of Tobei’s mouth was that her dress was distracting but he guesses she is wearing Summertime. I didn’t like it however I have not liked her since the beginning so nothing has changed. We both agree with Randy that it was Loungey.
Kendra Chantelle singing Impossible
This girl can sing however neither of us were feeling it. I would love it if she had another chance to perform and did something more upbeat.
Rachel Zevita singing Criminal
Steven said it was Broadway but I am leaning more towards Vegas. She has talent and could definitely do well in Vegas. She is not the next American Idol.
Karen Rodriguez singing Hero
When she first started I was so worried that she was singing Hero. When a contestant I love takes on a big song that was done by a huge singer it gets me nervous. She nailed it though and I LOVED that she sang it in English and Spanish. What a great way to make it unique and her own. All Tobei had to say on Karen was “Sick” as he showed me his goosebumps.
Lauren Turner singing Seven Day Fool
It was alright. Not great but not awful.
Ashthon Jones singing Love Over Me
I so wish I could have fast forwarded her performance. However this was one of the rare times Tobei and I watched a show live so we were stuck watching it. I found it dramatic and Diva-ish. Would like to see her perform something else.
Julie Zorilla singing Breakaway
Personally I hate when contestants come on and do a Kelly Clarkson song. I don’t know why it bothers me but I do know they almost never pull it off. She chose the wrong song to prove to America that she deserves a spot. With the right song she could have guaranteed herself a spot in the top 10.
Haley Reinhart singing Fallin’
She definitely tried working the sexy angle. I enjoyed the performance but nothing to write home about.
Thia Megia singing Out Here On My Own
OMG!!!! She was so brave to start off with no music but she nailed it. I wish I could have been in the audience to hear it live. I never get goosebumps and tonight I had them. Thia is incredible and it is so hard to believe she is only 15.
Lauren Alaina singing Turn on the Radio
It was a fun song. She is definitely a singer and a performer. Randy nailed it when he said she was a mix between Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood.
Pia Toscano singing I’ll Stand by You
Loved her performance and think she did a fantastic job. I was hoping for more power when she hit the chorus though.
Conclusion: So I found out from writing my thoughts on the top 12 boys that it is going straight to the top 10 this week. That is what I get for only watching the performance yesterday and fast-forwarding through everything else.
So on that top my 5 choice for the girls are Karen, Haley, Thia, Lauren and Pia. How about you? Who do you want to see from the girls in the top 10? Who did you vote for? I am in Canada so I can’t vote.
