Last night on American Idol, the Top 10 sang memorable songs from past American Idol winners. Sadly, there can be only one American Idol, so we must say goodbye to someone tonight. That is, right after we enjoy one cheesy group sing and performances by Bon Jovi and Phillip Phillips. Who will be the first season 12 finalist to be eliminated? Keep reading for all the details!
Jimmy Iovine weighs in on last night’s performances, saying, “It’s clear to me that the girls are just out performing the boys.” Jimmy adds that Curtis Finch Jr. will be gone before top 7 if he doesn’t mix things up. Janelle Arthur isn’t going anywhere anytime soon. Jimmy is a fan of Devin Velez, overall, but not last night. Jimmy believes Angie Miller is a real talent and shines most with her own material. Paul Jolley is a country artist? Jimmy doesn’t see it.
About Candice Glover, Jimmy says, “That is what music is supposed to feel like. Her talent, her poise, that song… won the night.” Lazaro Arbos has potential, providing he learns how to handle criticism. Kree Harrison has an uncanny ability to pick her own material. Burnell Taylor is 1000% the best guy this season. Jimmy thinks Amber Holcomb has the complete “star” package.
Top 3 (in no particular order)
Angie Miller, Candice Glover, and Kree Harrison
4 – Lazaro Arbos
5 – Amber Holcomb
6 – Janelle Arthur
7 – Burnell Taylor
8 – Paul Jolley
Bottom 2 (one *might* go home)
Devin Velez and Curtis Finch Jr.
Reacting to the bottom two, Keith Urban says, “These are both great singers. Devin particularly.”
“I definitely think Curtis should not be in the bottom two,” Nicki Minaj shares. “Come on, America. Are you kidding me? If Curtis goes home, I’m going home.”
Ryan reveals that Paul is safe. Nicki jumps out of her chair, walks in a circle, and sits down again.
Curtis sings for his life, hoping that the judges unanimously decide to save him. That’s not likely to happen on the first week.
Obviously, there can be only one waffle breakfast this season, and it’s not going to be Curtis. Curtis is, um, toast.
Also, Charlie Askew and Aubrey Cleland, who both fell just short of the top 10, compete for a spot in the American Idol summer tour. Charlie sings “Sky Blue Diamond” (an original) at the piano. Aubrey chooses “Out Here On My Own” for the sing-off. Now, America votes for whom they want to see on the tour, and I’m going to guess that it’ll be Charlie.
Your thoughts on the rankings? Did the right person go home this week? Who should join the summer tour? Sound off in the comments below!
