American Idol Season 9 Top 12 Performances (Rolling Stones Week)

- Michael Lynche (I enjoyed this performance,it was really really good. He picked the right song,worked the stage,he seemed nervous though in some parts but overall he performed really well)
- Didi Benami (I love how angst she was on that performance. She looked like almost forget the lyrics in the 2nd part of the song,but still a pretty good performance. Different from her usual accoustic style,but she gave it her all in that performance and I could see that)
- Casey James (I love his bluesy rock vibe,completely caught my attention,I loved his vocal,great performance I thought)
- Lacey Brown (urgh,weird arrangement of the song,verging on boring for me. Dunno why but I didn't like it,sometimes too slow,sometimes a lil bit all over the place. It's just okay)
- Andrew Garcia (just meh performance,I applaud him for not playing his guitar again though)
- Katie Stevens (the beginning was pitchy but she soared after that. I LOVE her voice. Different version from Susan Boyle but very good I thought)
- Tim Urban (I hated this reggae sound,but at least he's comfortable in his performance & not making even a single one awkward face. That's good. I couldn't wait for the song to be over though)
- Siobhan Magnus (she looked like some anime character,no,scratch that,she looked like a female vampire. Banshee's scream came out again. The dramatic tempo of that performance was spectacular. Really different from Gina Glocksen's version,but I loved this one. And the scream at the end,woah!!)
- Lee Dwyze (one of the best performance of the night,I loved the melody. I didn't know why he mumbled many words on the lyrics. I never expected that I'd love Lee as a contestant & waiting for his performance every weeks)
- Paige Miles (why the camera shot from the faraway many times? I can see right now why Simon loves Paige. She got big voice. I have hope for her now that she might impress me in the next few weeks if she could find the right song. Nice stage presence for this performance)
- Aaron Kelly (I didn't like the song,it's saying Angie Angie Angie like a broken record. I didn't feel this one. Sorry)
- Crystal Bowersox (pimp spot again,clearly they're pimping her. But this week,I really loved her performance,not the best of the night,but amazing nonetheless)

Overall a pretty good night. I'm impressed.
