1. Todrick Hall - Kelly Clarkson? Really? He didn't just mix it up, it sounded like he completely rewrote it. And he couldn't sustain the chorus to keep it interesting. I do think he's a natural performer, though. He knows how to play to the audience.
2. Aaron Kelly - Aw, he sounded so nervous tonight. He's such a sweet kid, but between wavering, picking a really boring song, and sounding nasally, it just wasn't a good performance.
3. Jermaine Sellers - Painful. So painful. Can he be gone already, please?
4. Tim Urban - His falsetto was painful. That seems to be the word of the night. The rest of it wasn't bad, but I kept comparing it to other versions and he just fell short every time.
5. Joe Munoz - More nerves and a bad chorus. He didn't get a lot of airtime, but I don't think it's going to matter. That performance is not going to demand that the audience vote for him.
6. Tyler Grady - An interesting song choice. Tyler needs to be fronting a band. That's all there is to it. I think he'll fly through this week.
7. Lee DeWyze - I'm not keen on the song, and the performance wasn't perfect, but it was the best one yet. Which considering how bad the other guys have been, doesn't say much.
8. John Park - I didn't like the beginning. But as soon as he took that microphone off the stand, he just lit up. He can stay. :)
9. Michael Lynche - The vocals aren't perfect, but with his personality, it didn't matter. This was the most exuberant performance of the night.
10. Alex Lambert - Another one I have no idea how he made it to the top 24. I just don't like the tone of his voice. At all. And he still reminds me of Hannah Montana's older brother. :P
11. Casey James - His voice was a tiny bit shaky from nerves in parts, and the smiling was a little too much but considering what he saw at the beginning, I'm impressed with how he kept it together. I really liked it. He's going to fly through.
12. Andrew Garcia - None of the other contestants have Andrew's polish. Even for as serious as this was, it was still miles ahead of most everybody else tonight.
MY FAVORITE THREE
MY BOTTOM TWO
WHO I THINK IS GOING HOME
Jermaine and Tim. I think Tim blew his second chance big time tonight. Alex might last another week unfortunately.
