American Idol Top 12 show review


Well once again we have a bit of a scandal on American Idol. This time, it resulted in the removal of Jermaine from the Top 12.  But other than the fact that the show will be cutting the remaining contestants down to 10 one week earlier than expected, nothing overly dramatic seemed to happen this week.

Here’s how I rate the performances from last night:

1. Hollie – Best of the night by far. Flawless, amazing, beautiful. She’s a serious contender to be the front runner.

2. Elise – Major redemption from last week. Good song choice, simple yet powerful vocals.

3. Shannon – Subtle with a few slip ups but she nailed several high notes.

4. Colton – Odd song choice but awesome voice. He did very well overall.

5. Erika – Great song, just a few slips but very strong showing overall.

6, Skylar – Good, solid start. All in all it wasn’t bad.

7. Phillip – Good rhythm. He hit the chorus perfectly. He’s a great performer but it didn’t quite live up to his usually showings.

8. Jessica – Had a chance to solidify herself as the leader of the pack but struggled a bit with her vibrato. Still well done and full of confidence.

9. Joshua – Way over-hyped by the judges. Good in parts but too much vibrato and voice fluctuation.

10. Deandre – Actually probably his best showing to date. It just didn’t seem to fit him though.

11. Heejun – Smokey tone but sounded flat and very labored, not very good.

I expect Heejun to go home but wouldn’t be surprised to see Deandre leave. The fan vote may be influenced by the judges so Joshua will likely be safe but it wouldn’t be a shock if Jessica is in the Bottom 3.  It would however, be a shock if Jessica did get sent packing just based on her consistent performances to date (including her rendition of “I Will Always Love You” from last week which was arguably the best performance of the season so far).

Synopsis of American Idol Top 12 Girls and what to look for in the overall Top 12

Tonight, American Idol’s showcased the Top 12 girls. And all in all, they kicked some serious butt.

The girls far outshined their male counterparts and put on a pretty good show overall.

That being said, here’s my thoughts on how that elimination might go.

Should be safe for sure:

Hallie

Erika

Should be safe:

Shannon

Elise

Jennifer

Hollie

It could go either way:

Jessica

Baylie

In danger of leaving:

Chelsea

Skylar

Haley

Brielle

Now for my projected Top 12 + wildcard overall finalists in random order:

Voted in:

Hallie

Colton

Erika

Chase

Shannon

Adam

Elise

Phillip

Jennifer

Reed

Judges 3 wildcard picks:

Hollie

Jermaine

Jessica

And just one last side note:

Although her performance was not the best, I would really like to see Baylie squeak into the Top 13 somehow. I think she is far better than she showed and would prove it given the chance to do so.
