American Idol’s Top 13 Singeth and Maybe We’re Amazed

American Idol’s Top 13 Singeth and Maybe We’re Amazed

Top 13 Believe They Can Fly

With the wonderful influence of Steven Tyler and Jennifer Lopez on American Idol, there is now a beautiful encouragement that lifts these young artists with a positive energy. Steven and Jennifer we really love what you have brought to this show.

Last night the 13 singers on “American Idol” performed songs by people they idolize, which gave us an insight into their inner music compass. They also were given advice by seasoned music producers.

Lauren Alaina began with Shania Twain’s " Any Man Of Mine" and her talent is really evident in each performance. The interesting thing about these competitions is how some contestants suddenly grow with the challenges. Lauren has not challenged herself yet. If she does, then she will really begin to shine in the competition.

Casey Abrams sang Joe Cocker’s "With A Little Help From My Friends" and unlike Lauren he was a "plethora of passion". ( Keep bringing it Steven!). Casey we loveth in Camelot. We are your friends Casey.

Ashthon Jones sang, "When You Tell Me That You Love Me" by the amazing Diana Ross. If she had chosen perhaps a more hip song and found a stronger voice, we could have seen the deeper Ashthon, so her performance was perhaps not as strong. Methinks she would be beautiful in films.

Paul McDonald with his raspy voice sang "Come Pick Me Up" by Ryan Adams. Paul is so charming to watch as he glides across the stage. We loveth his voice and the unique inflections that surprise us. We thinketh Paul might be a dark horse in this competition.

Pia Toscano in her stunning dress sang Celine Dion’s "All By Myself". It is a challenge to sing this song and it was wonderful to see Pia take the song on fearlessly. Her courage and those beautiful high notes made her performance one of the best of the evening.

James Durbin with great originality sang Paul McCartney’s "Maybe I’m Amazed". The tenderness in his voice during the song touched our hearts and surprised us. The control and tone and overall amazingness catapulted James into the few top spots.

Haley Reinhart daringly sang "Blue" by LeAnn Rimes. We felt she brought us back in time and we loved that. She is not afraid to be different and we love the style she is creating.

Jacob Lusk sang R. Kelly’s "I Believe I Can Fly" and he did soar. What a wonderful singer to have in this competition, who seems to just be giving us his gift with gratitude each time. Love, love love.

Thia Megia sang Michael Jackson’s "Smile". An intimate opening with Thia’s voice and the guitar was quite beautiful. She is young and also learning how to use her voice and how to dance with the audience. An exquisite future for Thia.

Stefano Langone sang "Lately" by Stevie Wonder, who was his idol. Stefano is so inspiring and when he sings you can feel his heart. The song was difficult but Stefano knows a lot about courage and we loveth his journey.

Karen Rodriguez sang Selena’s "I Could Fall In Love". The fire seemed to be lacking tonight for Karen and I think it was because she was trying to be someone else. A little lost tonight but we hope she will find her way back because she has amazing talent.

Scott McCreery sang "The River" by Garth Brooks and it was brilliant. Scott said "you don’t just sing country, you live it" and that is what he does when he sings. His voice is a gift and will carry him to the end.

Naima Adedapo finished the show with Rihanna’s "Umbrella". We love to be surprised and Naima added a little reggae flavour to the song and some dancing. A beautiful flower in this competition that is unique and will continue to blossom.

A juxtaposition of minstrels that must singeth for thine favour. This nyght we shall chooseth the minstrels that have given a gift to thee. Sing on….dear friends…
