I am sure that all of you who are following American Idol, are on pins and needles today, because tonight we will find out who America voted to keep and who will be sent home. For the last two nights, we witnessed the guys auditions, and who they brought back to make the thirteenth guy, Jermaine Jones, and then last night we watched the girls take the stage to rock the house.
It appears that the judges were more critical on the girls than they were on the boys, but with some good reasons. Not all the girls turned it on last night and found their sweet spot, but for the others, they had stellar performances. Here is what is going to happen tonight, depending upon how America voted, the top 5 girls and the top 5 guys will automatically be voted through to the next round, and 3 wild cards will be thrown by the judges to round out the Top 13. So, that means that the Top 25 will be cut down to 13 tonight. Get ready for some major sobbing as the drama begins for the remaining contestants and we find out who makes it to the next level.
Here is the list of our Top 5 Favorite Girls & Boys:
– Erika Van Pelt, her confidence shines through her voice
– Jen Hirsh, can definitely hold a note and has not had any flaws
– Skylar Laine, she truly had the best performance & voice and showed everyone that she can truly perform & get the job done
– Jessica Sanchez, this girl can really sing and will end up being one of the top contenders on Idol
– Elise Testone, she has more to bring to the table and we felt she held back a little, but we hope that America voted to keep her
– Joshua Ledet, WOW is all we can say about this singer!
– Colton Dixon, this boy is radio ready, the next James Durbin
– Phillip Phillips, this quirky singing pawn shop worker is definitely one of our favorites and we hope he moves onto the next level
– Creighton Fraker, we never know what this guy has up this sleeve, but we love his versatility and energy
– Aaron Marcellus, WOW again for this guy, he can really sing and we want him to stay
We have many more favorites too, as we have been a fan of Adam Brock from the beginning, but we think that America might vote him off, Reed Grimm also has great potential but we’re unsure if he will make the final cut, and last but not least is Heejun Han, we know that he can sing, but he has to do a better job on his performance. Also, there always has to be one Idol who thinks that their stuff does not stink and grates on our nerves, and that is Brielle Von Hugel, who we think that America will vote her off just because of this & because we don’t want to see her obnoxious Mom any more.
That’s it, our rundown of our picks. In a few hours we will find out what happens and see if any of our favorites stay and if America voted the same way. Good luck to everyone!
