Lil Rounds, 23, Memphis, Tenn., “The Way You Make Me Feel”:
She was good! What a way to kick off the show and put pressure on all the other contestants! I was grooving to her song and although she had a weak start, but that's just because it's the pressure of being the first. Overall, a good but forgettable performance. Simon was spot on, "lazy song choice" and like what i've mentioned, forgettable.Scott MacIntyre, 23, Scottsdale, Ariz., “Keep the Faith”:
For me, the ending was abit rough for me as he was nearly finishing the song. But it was a good performance and i enjoyed it. Weird song choice, Simon and Randy was right.. it was abit too safe for me.Danny Gokey, 28, Milwaukee, “Pretty Young Thing”:
Powerful vocals, powerful performance. Weak starting but i'm impressed. Funny dancing though and it was a very "free" performance, just going all out. Great, best so far.Michael Sarver, 27, Jasper, Texas, “You Are Not Alone”:
Wow, he has got a good voice. I love his song choice and I got chills just from listening him sing. He can sing, and as an oil rigger and in this current economy the everyday working man is going to touch the hearts of America. I thought he could be in danger in the top 13, but what i heard was big passion. Great, he's going to be safe.Jasmine Murray, 17, Starkville, Miss., “I’ll Be There”:
I like her performance. It was definitely better than my expectation and i think she did good. She's going to have a hard time surviving though, as the wildcard with the lowest popularity. And i think she lacked abit of self-confidence and kinda lost focus halfway through the song while singing. I really hope she gets through to the next round though. I like her. Kris Allen, 23, Conway, Ark. “Do You Remember the Time”:
Being the guy who seems to be flying the radar and still not making any impression, i think he did well enough to survive another week. It was abit boring at times during his performance. But it was good.Allison Iraheta, 16, Los Angeles, “Give In To Me”:
It was a performance true to herself, it was very good and i think she rocked the stage! Not as good as her previous performance, but it was definitely good enough for me. And i think she'll make it to the top 6 at least, if she continues to take the stage and impress, and surprises us sometimes perhaps with a sexy song choice or what. Anoop Desai, 21, Chapel Hill, “Beat It”:
Wow, he has got big fans now! Big likable personality and it's hard not to like him! Wow, blown away by his performance, wasn't the best vocals. But wow, i enjoyed it totally. Love his performance and i think he did good! I hope he stays! Totally disagreed with the judges. I like it!
But I think he's in trouble...Jorge Nunez, 20, Carolina, Puerto Rico, “Never Can Say Goodbye”:
He previously gave me the impression that he can sing, and he proved it to me today again. HOWEVER, his song choice was cheesy, unexciting, boring and it might really put him in danger. I didn't like it and it was one of those "i don't care and am going to fast forward" performances.
I'm going to say he's going to be in some danger tomorrow as well.Megan Corkrey, 22, Sandy, Utah, “Rockin’ Robin”:
I really really like Megan and I thought that was the most awww video for the night. I enjoyed her performance at least and i think an enjoyable performance is better than a boring performance!Adam Lambert, 26, Los Angeles, “Black or White”:
Incredible vocals. Good performance. Love the song, and i think it made Paula hopelessly impressed and love him to the depth. Anyway, i do realize sometimes he appears to be screaming or shrieking.. gotta be careful. But tonight he was exceptional! But he took the stage amazingly! Love his performance, was blown away by him!Matt Giraud, 23, Kalamazoo, Mich., “Human Nature”:
Soulful performance, great piano and great singing. He can hit the high notes and that's amazing. Seriously. He's not going to win with all those crazy guys around.. but he's going to go far if he continue to do well.Alexis Grace, 20, Memphis, Tenn., “Dirty Diana”:
I love the singing, the attitude and i think she's great. Love her loads and i hope she stays! And i think she's going to and continue to impress us for another few weeks. She really looked like a star and worked the stage like an artist! Love love love her!My Top 3 performances:
3. AlexisMy Bottom 3 performances:
3. JasmineWho I think might be in DANGER:
4. MeganWho I think will be going home:
But i'm going to give props to the Top 13. A totally enjoyable performance night. At least more than half blew me away and i've got to say, best Top 12/13 finalists EVER! Now i seriously hope Kris and Jorge are going home tomorrow and that all the girls will at least survive another round.
