Based on your ratings Joab, I thought that Lazaro and Elijah would have amazing performances... but they were really underwhelming. Elijah's voice is so much more nasally than I remember. A little flat in places too. I found Lazaro's voice lacking power for the song. Then I stopped listening to the boys. :lol3:

I don't think the boys and girls are even comparable this year.

Polaroid, I was judging them in comparison to all the guys, not to be influenced with the grades that I gave the girls.

If Angie, Amber and Kree were the A standard and if the boys were to be compared with them, then the 3 guys which I rater A- would be getting B, which means every other guy drops 2 grades. :lol3:

Only those 3 guys had performances I felt were better than A FEW of the girls. The rest, sucked.

I hope this kid will be OK. Charlie Askew had a meltdown after hearing the judges critique. His song choice was not good, his choice of clothing was terrible and I don't know what he meant when he said he just had to vent. We'll know in a little while if he made the cut. I really don't expect that to happen.

Charlie Askew Butchers American Idol Performance, Breaks Down on Stage
by Hilton Hater at March 7, 2013 2:00 am.  Updated at March 7, 2013 3:21 pm.

Poor Charlie Askew.

The American Idol hopeful auditioned live for the first time tonight, choosing the track "Mama" by Genesis. Which is about a prostitute.

But things got even weirder from there: Askew donned a ponytail. And a grungy shirt. And screeched throughout the performance, drawing outright laughter from the judges.

"What happened?" Nicki Minaj asked. "I don’t want to see your arms. I don’t want you working out. I don’t want to see that ponytail. I don't want to see that earring. Lose the mustache immediately. I feel like someone stole my kid. I want my cute, cuddly Charlie back!"

After hearing harsh critiques from the panel, Askew broke down alongside Ryan Seacrest.

“All I can say is, I needed to vent a little bit," Charlie said when asked about the audition. "A lot of people think I’m a very happy boy, and the only reason I smile so much is because I feel like I have to."

Wow. Sad, profound stuff.

Seacrest handled the situation like a pro, telling Askew: “You’ve got some friends here. We appreciate your courage and your honesty, and there’s nothing easy about having those feelings inside and standing up here and having to do that tonight.”

I think it should be: This is the first time everyone who needs to be in the Top 10 is there, aka Candice, Angela, Amber, Kree and Devin and maybe Burnell. We don't really care about the rest. :lol3:
