American Idol Top 7 Recap (Take Two)

The 2010-today theme was pretty interesting considering it allowed for a lot of newer songs since up until then, most of the song options where from several years gone by. While I don’t think all the contestants took full advantage of this opportunity, I do believe this may have just been the most competitive week so far.

HERE’S HOW I RATE THE FIRST PERFORMANCES:

1. Hollie  

2. Jessica

3. Colton 

4. Phillip 

5. Joshua 

6. Elise 

7.  Skylar 

HERE’S HOW I RATE THE SECOND PERFORMANCES:

1. Hollie 

2. Phillip  

3. Jessica 

4. Joshua 

5. Skylar

6. Elise 

7.  Colton

OVERALL: 

1. Hollie – Her vocals where strong and she really started to look comfortable and confident. She showed that she deserves to be back in the race.

2. Phillip - Great song choice in round two, risky in round one. The smooth, catchy performance may have just paid off.

3. Jessica - A bit over the top in parts but she came out with fighting with so much power and vocal beauty.

4. Colton - Unique approach but not his best work. Still pretty solid nonetheless.

5. Joshua - Went a bit crazy reverting back to excessive screamy vocals and vibrator. All in all he was just OK.

6. Skylar - Fun and entertaining with some interesting song choices. Not bad but not great.

7. Elise – She had great tone and was quite sexy in the second song but just didn’t seem to have the same impact as the others.

The Bottom 3 “should” be Elise, Skylar and Joshua with Elise going home. But, after the shocking situation last week, it seems like anything goes.

Side Notes:

Last week was amazingly competitive and this week even took that to the next level. The voting will likely be extremely close and we could be in for a bit of a surprise. Literally everyone is vulnerable at this point. I would guess that Jessica’s fans will spring into action after last week’s ridiculous scare.

American Idol Top 7 Recap

The 2010-today theme was pretty interesting considering it allowed for a lot of newer songs since up until then, most of the song options where from several years gone by. While I don’t think all the contestants took full advantage of this opportunity, I do believe this may have just been the most competitive week so far.

Here’s how I rate the solo performances:

1. Elise – Perfect song choice. So cool and dead on.

2. Colton – Good song selection. His performance was intense and heartfelt. Very nice.

3. Joshua – I’m not a big fan but he impressed me this week. His best showing to date.

4. Jessica – Odd choice of song. Good vocals but not nearly her best.

5. Hollie – Interesting song. She put a cool spin on it nailing the last high note. Good job all in all.

6. Phillip – Unusual song. Slow start but got a little better as it went on. Just OK though.

7.  Skylar – Subtle yet powerful. Well done.

Here’s how I rate the duets:

1. Jessica, Hollie and Joshua – Good song match for their voices. Fun, energetic and pretty nice.

2. Skylar and Colton – The harmonized much better than last week but it was still lacking.

3. Elise and Phillip – Not bad. Good in the chours but off in other parts.

The Bottom 3 “should” be Skylar, Phillips and Hollie with Syklar going home. The voters made the right call last week but can be quite unpredictable so who knows what might happen.

Side Notes:

Elise seems to have been lacking support but based on her showing this week she should be just fine. Hollie, although probably the best pure vocalist of all the remaining contestants, has been in the same boat and it very much in danger again tonight. Joshua moved up a bit among the others, at least for this week. Personally, I think it’s a fluke. Colton continues to remain the most versatile of all the contestants. Even with a slip this week, Jessica likely remains the front-runner.
