Since the elimination of Haley Reinhart, Ive never been so sad to see someone from this show get eliminated, but as Angie tried to sing her final song, fighting tears, i just couldn't believe it. I predicted Angie to win the whole thing and I'm sure alot of people did too. No doubt this girl will be the first to get signed and have a big career
On the bright side we Have a Candice Glover vs Kree Harrison finale which is amazing. Team Kree!
Kree is the underdog but has all of the country fans voting and Candice has got the power to deliver amazing performance. this should be good, even though i wish Angie was in the finale :(
Okay Okay Okay, yes i know i haven't been around to give my feed back on American idol for a while. but honestly its kinda hard when you got school, work, and yes when this season was starting to bore me a little. Do not fear though because I'm back!
Candice Glover Rank: 1
Candice has been giving amazing performances every week. For her to get eliminated she will either need to give a very bad performance or a shock elimination, which is very possible for Candice. But until then she stand at the top of the list.
Angie is still riding on her Hollywood/Vegas frontrunner status. She is obviously the female that the judges and the producers want to see int he finally so i doubt she will go anywhere anytime soon. She does have a beautiful voice and i lover what she brings to the stage, but I'm waiting fr her breakout performance.
Kree is this close from taking second or first on the rankings, her performances are always stellar and she is by far one of the best contestants. The only problem is that's she has yet to have a big moment. Also she is in competition with Janelle for the country spot, and in competition with Angie and Candice for that number one spot. She has alot of work cut out for her.
Burnell is going to be the last guy standing but as of now, he has no chance of winning. The girls are just to overwhelming this season. Burnell hasn't done anything special to make him a frontrunner, but he does give stellar vocals every week and that's why he is ranked # 4
Janelle was a frontrunner, then she fell big time, now we are starting to see her rise again. Which can mean that she is the underdog now. plus she is a country girl from the south. to me Janelle can win this whole thing if she gets better every week because America will just fall in love with this country girl.
Amber has an amazing voice, her runs are phenomenal, but when we talk about the girls this season her name is never in the race for the number one spot. She is a true darkhorse and she can be a real contender if she gives us great performances, but if she is bad one week, shes gone.
Devin has such a nice voice but he has been picking very bad songs that end up in boring forgettable performances. At this point i don't know how he can turn things around, but he should just do what he can while he is still here because i don't think hell crack top 5 at this rate.
No surprise here, Lazaro is a sweet kid with a decent voice but he just isn't ready for the show. i haven't seen a contestant sing so bad and go on week after week since sanjaya in season 6. Lazaro isn't going to win so please America, vote him out!
09. Lazaro Arbos In My Life
Shake my head, America why are you keeping this kid around? I understand that you feel bad for him but this performance was not only the worst of the night, one of the worst all season. Nothing about this performance was good, the vocal, the phrasing, the pitch, it was all bad. And he cried afterwards....hell be safe. 2/10
08. Devin Velez The Long and Winding Road
Oh man what a long and winding performance! what was he thinking when he picked this song, this song should never be sung on idol its so damn boring. To be nice, yes he sounded great as always, but Devin needs a moment or he is history. 6.5/10
07. Paul Jolley Eleanor Rigby
he started of very bad with the falsetto,but other than that i really liked it, Paul's best performance thus far. That big beautiful note he sang was the greatest thing I've seen him do all season, but it looked like the judges we rent so pleased. could spell trouble for Paul. 7/10
06. Amber Holcomb Shes Leaving Home
The judges didn't like it,i loved it. This wasn't her best but i loved the way she sang and the choices she made. She didn't go crazy with the runs as she usually does and it was nice to hear her actually hold a note. What Nicki said about her not wanting to sing this song was just dumb, she picked the song so obviously she wanted to sing it. 7.5/10
05. Angie Miller Yesterday
I agree that Angie completely did the opposite of what she was supposed to do, this song is meant to be sung soft and to have a subtle connection to it. Angie sounded great but she over sang the song a little bit. Shes my favorite contestant so i personally thought she did a good job and she did, but it would have been better without the dramatics. 7.5/10
04. Burnell Taylor Let It Be
Burnell really should expand his knowledge on music because who doesn't know this song, seriously. But still he sang it beautifully, he does things to the melody that only he can do, it sets him apart. i still think he is the est of the guys but he is in need of a moment, something to make it a real contender against the girls. 8/10
03. Janelle Arthur I Will
Finally Janelle is starting to show some sign of live. This was the first time that i saw glimpse of the old Janelle from Hollywood week. She gave a very nice performance with a very delicate vocal. it was quite refreshing. I still wasn't crazy over it but it was the best shes done in a while. i still think she can win, so if shes gonna beat Angie,Candice, kree, shes gonna have to put some effort. 8/10
02. Candice Glover Come Together
What1? she better sang1 haha Candice is just on a whole other level i swear. she showed that not only can she sing the ballads but that she can rock out. this performance was freakin crazy good. And thank you Candice for going uptempo on Beatles week. 8.5/10
01. Kree Harrison A Little Help From My Friends
What can i say about Kree, i love her! haha kree is such a pro and she is so good she doesn't need to over sing or dance on stage. She just opens her mouth and t sounds good. I thought this was the best of the night even with the fact that she went first. 8.5/10
Pretty expected song choice from Curtis, and his vocal? it was pretty dang predictable. He didn't hit all the notes he was going for and he usually goes for the same high notes every performance. To me watching this was like watching a cartoon i mean Curtis just does some ridiculous things , not in a good way.
Most people hated it, it was bad obviously because lets face it, Lazaro isn't such a great singer. But i actually thought it was better than most of the stuff he has done throughout the competition so far. poor Lazaro will keep getting the sympathy votes and hell just stick around and outlast a favorite just watch.
08. Janelle Arthur
This is why i hate this theme, the contestants are taking songs that other idols had moments with already. Janelle maybe this was a good song on paper but she really had to deliver. unfortunately she didn't. it lacked the energy that scotty brought to the song when he performed it. she just didn't sound good at all i hated it.
07. Paul Jolley
Again he picks songs that are perfect for him but somehow he just never wows me. He actually sounded alright in this one but i found myself wishing it was over. I don't know i just cant get excited about Paul's performances.
06. Burnell Taylor
Flying Without Wings
Don't get me wrong, burnell is the best guy in the competition, his voice is unique . But this was a horrendous song choice. My least favorite coronation song, theres no way burnell could make this song any more like able. Another thing that bothers me is that i feel like burnell is giving the same type of performance week after week, he needs to do something uptempo or atleast move around!
05. Devin Velez
yes i know this one was a bit boring but i actually liked the song for Devin, he has a little country in him. His vocal was perfect as always and i just really want Devin to do well. He probably wont make it far if he keeps giving these types of performances though, America doesn't like forgettable performances.
04. Amber Holcomb
A Moment Like This
First of all, you never ever touch this song, ever! This i Kelly's winning anthem, the song that started it all. Amber got the pimp spot and yes she sounded fantastic and gave her own rendition of the song. It was a nice moment, but come on jimmy, next time you tell her no when she picks a song like this!
03. Kree Harrison
If Carrie Underwood couldn't have a moment with this song, Kree probably cant either, but man did she sound freakin good. i totally agree with nicki and the whole waffle & syrup nonsense haha this performance was mesmerizing. She pretty much made love to the lyrics of this song and that's what i love about kree she takes any song and makes love too it haha.
02. Angie Miller
Not gunna lie, for a girl who has presented herself as the female Colton Dixon, i was surprised she sang this really big song, i was wondering if she could pull it off, and she did!. Angies voice is so big and powerful she nailed this song. she does seem a little theatrical but whatever haha
01. Candice Glover
I Who Have Nothing
Candice freakin Glover! Jordin Sparks had her moment, Haley Reinhart had her moment, now Candice had her moment with this song and she destroyed it, it was by far the best of the night and one of the best performances all season. She is just so good at whats she does, right now she is the top contender no doubt.
This group of boys this year is filled with pretty much the same type of singer. They really want a girl to win so am guessing they made sure to not put through any WGWG, and also alot of the guys this season seem a Little, too nice haha. But really i cant see any of these guys winning this year but who knows.
Charlie Askew MaMa
What the hell was this? and what the hell was he wearing? Charlie should not have made it this far because he just cant sing, he started off pretty nice but when he starts screaming its like hearing a child yell at the supermarket. I'm sorry i just didn't get it. 3/10
Vincent Powell End of The Road
What a disappointment, i had high hopes for Vincent but he came out with a very cheesy song choice. he sounded good but it was just underwhelming. 5/10
Curtis Finch Jr. I Believe i Can Fly
Oh man,cheesiest overdone song you can ever pick. For that reason alone he should get eliminated, seriously. The judges loved it, i hated it. His vocals weren't off, and he just did way too much with it like always. 5/10
Cortez Shaw Locked Out Of Heaven
Cortez gave a very karaoke performance with this one, not only was the song choice not for him, he didn't sound all that good either. if you want to seem current, don't sing this overplayed Bruno mars song! Cortez has a nice voice but it seems like he doesn't know what to do with it. 4.5/10
Lazaro Arbos Feeling Good
This was no doubt the Best that we have seen from Lazaro, but that isn't saying much. This is a tired old song that shouldn't be performed on these shows anymore but his rendition wasn't bad at all and he stayed on pitch for most of the song. i still don't get Lazaro though, what kind of artist does he want to be? 6/10
Paul Jolley Just a Fool
Paul says he want to be the male version of Taylor swift, hm OK Paul haha. On paper this is a great song choice for Paul and he did sing it well i think his tone really fits the song well but i just cant get past the way he looks when hes performing, they call it theatrics, i call it trying to hard. 6.5/10
Nick Boddington Iris
Nick wins the song choice award because i love this song haha. And i think he did well with it, sure the arrangement with the piano was a little too slow but overall it was the Nick that i liked. His vocals weren't perfect and his voice cracked a little, but it was still a good performance. 7/10
Elijah Liu Stay
Big improvement over last weeks train wreck, he picked the perfect song and he sounded very current. the problem is that he went first and yes the song didn't really go anywhere but compared to some of the other guys, Elijah really deserves to stay. 7/10
Devin Velez Its Impossible (Somos Novios)
man Devin has such a big beautiful voice and his tone is so clear. Even though he went into his Spanish thing again i didn't mind it at all, not because i understood him haha, but because he sang great. I think Devin is one of the stronger of the guys but he needs to show more than just the ballads. 8/10
Burnell Taylor Im Here
He sang his audition song and i cant blame him, he did something that he knew he could nail and that would get him into the top 10. With that being said i think burnell really had a little moment with this performance, the best Ive heard him. He sings with real emotion and he has these little things he does with his voice that makes a performance his, I think hes well on his way. 8.5/10
This years group of girls is definitely stronger than the boys but they aren't as great as they make us believe they are. theres almost no diversity, No Haley Reinharts, Skylar Laines, Allison Irahettas. Just girls with big voices this year,. But i cant complain because some of these girls are very very talented. Even though I wish some girls like (Juliana Chahayed) were still here.
As for the judges, Nicki is still hilarious and i think shes a great judge, i just think she can get a bit annoying sometimes, Keith has great input but is too quick to get on his feet, Mariah Carey, poor mariah, she tries hard to be a good judge but just says a bunch of nonsense. An randy is randy and is considered the voice of reason at times.
From Worst to Best
Zoanette Johnson Whats Love Got To Do
Oh lord why is she still here! She actually got serious for this performance and the craziness that everyone loved was all gone. She sounded just awful like always and he judges finally said something about it. 3/10
Tenna Torres Lost
Another girl that i thought shouldn't have made it this far, but she did look better than she did last time. But still her tone is unbearable, i just cant listen to her she sounds like a chipmunk. yes she sang good but it did nothing for me. 4/10
Janelle Arthur If i Can Dream
Boring song, Janelle really doesn't know how to pick her songs, last week was bad, this was a little better but still not good. Janelle was supposed to be a front runner, and she does give me the Scotty Mccreery, Tate Stevens vibe, no matter how boring she is America will vote for her. But she has to at least step up her game. 5/10
Adriana Latonio Stand Up For Love
I think Adriana is very pretty and she sounded very nice, she has potential but i just don't think shes ready right now. This song was boring and it looked very pageanty for my liking. Maybe next year, 5.5/10
Aubrey Cleland Big Girls Don't Cry
Aubrey is a beautiful girl, and can be on the radio today. But her voice just isn't big enough for this years competition. She sounded very nice but she didn't exactly take it anywhere so she could be in trouble. 6/10
Breanna Steer Flaws and All
This was a pretty risky song choice because is was the opposite of what she did last week, but i really liked it. She sounded very good and restrained and she brougtht attitude to the performance. I think this is a song that should have been performed later on in the competition, not this early to Be taking risks. 7.5/10
Kree Harrison Stronger
I didn't know the song but i didn't even care because Kree kills it every time. She has this big voice and her vocals are just amazing, she has a country sound but not too country. She is definitely one of the stronger girls this season haha. 8/10
Amber Holcomb I Believe In You And me
I was thinking not another Whitney song! But she slayed it! Her tone is so rich and yes she does alot of vocal acrobats that sometimes arent necessary but i think she has to because i don't think she can hit the big high notes. 8/10
Angie Miller Never Gone
The female version of Colton Dixon!? Yes haha. I really do like this song so i was excited to hear she was going to be singing it, and i think she did a great job. it was reminiscent of her Hollywood performance but nevertheless i think she was captivating. this season is hers to lose and i for one hopes she keeps it up. 8/10
Candice Glover Ordinary People
One of my favorite song, and i never heard a girl sing it before so i really liked it. Her voice is just so unreal, everything she does with her voice is just impeccable. And when she hits those big notes, its flawless. The only thing i didn't like is how she messed with the melody just a little but whatever haha. 9/10
