Angela's performance led me to Colton Dixon's song on Youtube and I can't stop crying right now. What a beautiful song. Angela and Kree sang magnificently tonight. I hope they both advance to the F2 of this show.

Can I just say that I feel like Zoanette is about to cough something up every time she holds a long note... :stare

I liked Angela's performance so much. Candice was really good too.

I have enjoyed Zoanette but this latest performance, if you can call it that, was a disaster for her.  There was hardly any semblance of the original song.  It was the wrong song and her lack of ability to actually sing just proved how much she relies on performance and theatrics to excite the audience. I will be shocked if she is one of the top five girls.  The judges all criticized her song choice. None liked what she did.

I see VoteForTheWorst is pulling for her... What does that tell us?  :groan:

Tonight the semi-finalist competition for the boys. We'll see:

Curtis Finch
Elijah Liu
Paul Jolley
Charlie Askew
Devin Velez
Burnell Taylor
Cortez Shaw
Lazaro Arbos
Nick Boddington
Vincent Powell

I predict that the judges will have 2 wildcard choices to bring the numbers up to 12. Randy mentioned it last night and I think it will happen.

I was actually hoping for this structure:

TOP 4 GIRL VOTES MOVE ON, TOP 4 BOY VOTES MOVE ON.

4 WILDCARD, EACH JUDGE GETS TO CHOOSE ONE PERSON.

And since there is always a TOP 13 :res:, the person with the next most votes but not the TOP 4 BOY/GIRL moves on.

I trust the judges more than America, sadly.

Kree Harrison: Her voice... her voice <333 She's a tone lighter than Carrie Underwood but when she belts out high notes she's going places (RANDY IS RIGHT!)... LOL! Great song choice, I can imagine Carrie singing that song and getting a standing ovation from all the judges as well.
Grade: A

Amber Holcomb: Her voice sent chills down my spine. Goosebumps. LOVE IT. Love her voice, love the sincerity of the performance and loved how she controlled her vocals. Great song choice which showcased her vocals well and just realized she sound as if she was recording and not singing live as well! <3
Grade: A

Angela Miller: I haven't heard this song before. The fact that she made me fell in love with the song and want to buy it on iTunes means that she has got a successful rendition of it, sounds current and belted out a song that was soulful and touching. I like the inclusion of the band and drums at the back as well. + she's getting votes from all the hardcore Christian fans and Colton Dixon fans as well. SMART SONG CHOICE. Oh did I mention everytime she's on the piano, I just want to stop everything I was doing and watch her perform? :<3
Grade: A

Aubrey Cleland: Wow, this song really showcased her voice and I actually like the performance so much more than Candice's one, even if it wasn't the best vocals or what. She performed a pop song, sound recent, contemporary and really good. + she has the package, that's enough for another +.
Grade: B+

Candice Glover: She sang a really old school; fashioned style song and she won't appeal to the female voters, but definitely the older generation. Look if Tate Stevens can win X Factor, nothing is impossible. I like her vocals, her jazzy, smoothness in her voice. But I didn't like the song choice.
Grade: B+

Adriana Latonio: What a nice tone and voice quality, only to be hindered by a bad song choice which overpowered her voice. At some parts of her song, her pronunciation didn't even go through or she wasn't even heard. But she can sing, she really can sing and I like her voice! Her last note was amazing!
Grade: B

Brenna Steer: Good vocals, nice voice, snooze fest. I slept throughout. Nuff said.
Grade: B

Tenna Torres: She sang a nice and great song, but the number one thing you must do as a singer is you must be able to belt out all your lyrics, she literally muttered/mumbled out some of them and besides Janelle, she was the only one whom I heard flat notes. Sigh.
Grade: B-

Janelle Authur: Her voice reminds me of Kristy Lee Cook, but... she's obviously being outshined by Kree in the genre of country music. No matter how pleseant she sounds, her voice still sounds unstable and shaky at times. And not a really good song choice, really boring and may I say that she has the package and everything and it's such a pity.
Grade: B-

Zoanette Johnson: Too much rasp, it's not a raspberry competition. But she's going to be voted in anyway, sigh.
Grade: C

Top 5 girls I want to go through are obviously the five girls I gave the A and B+ grade above. But I believe America will vote in Kree, Amber, Angela, Aubrey and Zoanette.

Due to wildcard, I believe Candice will receive the spot and if Adriana is lucky (and the judges really want to push for a girl to win), she will receive the second/third wild card spot depending if there's a F12/F13.

Elijah Liu: I really think he has a nice tone and he will be a great performing artise! Randy, you are wrong! If he didn't start off the nice, he could have had a really good night considering so many performances SUCKED. I honestly thought those vocals deserved an A.. but the arrangement of the song, towards the end... the drums were TOO LOUD!
Grade: A-

Devin Velez: Nice vocals, the first part of the song I did not like because it was obviously not meant to be sang in English. The second part of the song was obviously mad talent and singing. Deserves to get through to the next round.
Grade: A-

Lazaro Arbos: What a great tone and voice! THIS BOY CAN SING! #FAITHINLAZARORESTORED that was such a good improvement from last week, which was HORRIBLE.
Grade: A-

Curtis Finch Jr.: Too much gospel stance, with the wave-board like movements, little pinky. And the Youtube comments are WAYYYYY too funny. He just comes off as a really arrogant person and I think America is right. American Idol needs to be a person with a great personality and good representative. He sings like madddddd but his personality is way too cocky.
Grade: Vocals A+, Attitude: C+ therefore Overall: B+

Cortez Shaw: Good vocals, but a bad song choice. The background singers were distracting and the music was wayyyyyyy distracting. I think it's sad because it's an entertaining and memorable performance, but he blew it on the arrangements of the song.
Grade: B+

Burnell Taylor: Re-used a song from audition, minus a grade. Dress sense, minus a grade. Vocals, add a grade. It was honestly boring, though.
Grade: B+

Paul Jolley: Karaoke-ish, I can hear vocals like that anyway in a pub and continue on with my beer and food. But at least towards the end he managed to belt out all the notes he needed to.
Grade: B

Nick Boddington: I really think his vocals are mediocre and I can hear anyone with that voice anywhere on Youtube now. He went flat and off key on one note. At some point it felt as though he was breathless.
Grade: B-

Charlie Askew: Weird song choice, not a nice refreshing choice for me. Hard to watch his performance as it was just not great to see people squint their eyes and belt out notes. I thought that was a disappointing performance.
Grade: C+

Vincent Powell: Started the song on a flat note, off key and this song was sexy until he sang it. I couldn't watch his performance, it was worst than JDA's.
Grade: C

I want to see Cortez, Elijah, Devin and Lazaro go through. Can the last available spot go to the girls instead? I think I can do with a 9 girls 4 guys F13. :lol3:

We were behind last night because of Survivor and fast forwarded through the last of Vincent Powell's song. His "look" with the glasses reminds me of a James Bond villian.  He should get some advice on styling.   :)
