American Idol Season 10: Top 11 Redux Performances (Elton John Theme)

- Ryan bleached his hair into black.
- Young Elton John is hot!!
- Scotty McCreery - Country Comfort
It was good,but I'm bored with the same kind of performances every week from him. Why don't he get called to step out from his comfort zone? While Pia is criticized for doing ballad every weeks,they let Scotty doing the same style every weeks. Scotty's shoutout to his grandma will seriously turn into a lot of votes from Middle America. Btw did J-Lo get botox?? Her face is so stiff.
- Naima Adedapo - I'm Still Standing
Interesting and unique but I got bored by the second half of the performance. I think I heard this song somewhere before. Naima is just up and down for me each weeks. The judges slammed her. She's probably go home tomorrow. Botox J-Lo is scaring me!!
- Paul McDonald - Rocket Man
Very subdue performance. It's good but I dunno about the song. He captivates me though,no antic and with his low tones that sometimes sounds so delicious in the ear. So far it's borefest again.
- Pia Toscano - Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me
Oh no!! Why is she singing this song?? It's very good but I prefer David Archuleta's outstanding version in the Finale. Did she have sound problem on her mic??
- Stefano Langone - Tiny Dancer
Probably his better performance for the last few weeks. He's connecting with the viewers. His vocal is okay. What's wrong with Jennifer's obsession with Stefano?? I'm tired of it.
- Urgh I got bored always by this season. They've done good performances every weeks but no real standout so far that makes my jaw dropped
- Lauren Alaina - Candle In The Wind
Wow!! Stunning performance!! Now that's what I talked about. Although the bandzilla is back in full form and overwhelmed her voice a bit. Less is more. The best performance of the night and Lauren's best performance.
- James Durbin - Saturday Night's Alright For Fighting
At first it was all over the place,really corny but he picked it up in the end and slay it. Also with pyro again. Dunno why James getting pyro all the times. I really enjoyed it. Very entertaining!! Don't offend the advertiser,James!! I know what you meant (which is Michael Jackson's Pepsi burning fiasco).
- Thia Megia - Daniel
Whoa!! Who saw this coming?? Thia knocked me over with this beautiful mesmerizing rendition. Easily her best performance & one of the best of the night. She felt it,her tone is coming out through my screen,very subdue,beautiful!!
- Casey Abrams - Your Song
Beautiful,Casey!! Really beautiful!! Although I must say on occasion I see him trying to control his urge to growl. He needs to find that balance,but I'm glad the musical Casey is back!! Botox isn't your friend,J-Lo!! Your face is so weird all night long.
- Jacob Lusk - Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word
Wonderful!! One of Jacob's best. He put his emotion out there for the whole viewers to see. I almost cried!! Great performance. Randy,what the fuck are you talking about?? Jacob needs to restraint his tendency to screams. Don't tell him to shout and scream like what he did on I Believe I Can Fly!!
- Haley Reinhart - Benny and the Jets
Woah again!! Really proud of Haley! Let it all out,Haley!! I love it that she's coming on her own and feeling more confident each weeks. She got so much potential with her voice. We just barely scratch the surface with her.

The first part of the show bored me to death,but after Lauren and so on,they impressed me!! Overall,great night. Thanks God for some great performances.

My rank:
1. Thia Megia
2. Lauren Alaina
3. Haley Reinhart
4. Casey Abrams
5. Jacob Lusk
6. James Durbin
7. Stefano Langone
8. Paul McDonald
9. Pia Toscano

Justin Bieber vs Slipknot : Pyschosocial Baby

LOL nice mix. Slipknot always scares me!! Hahaha.

Carrie Underwood Honoring George.H.W.Bush with Instant Karma

Perfect perfect perfect!! Meanwhile,I'm still curious about her political leaning. Must be conservative,if I have to bet my money.

American Idol Season 10: Top 11 iTunes Recording Review

- Casey Abrams (woah,I enjoy this one. Way better than his live performance. The growl,the background singer,everything just perfect in this recording)
- Thia Megia (again,I'm pleasantly surprised by Thia's tone in this recording. Love this!! No wonder I see many Thia fans in IDF. Although she's robotic in the stage,but I can't deny that she got an amazing tone)
- Jacob Lusk (okay,I must say that Jacob's live performance is a bit overrated by the judges. It was very good but not that great. Anyway,this recording is okay. If you love gospel songs,you must be in orgasm listening to this,but I'm not.)
- Lauren Alaina (what's with the old recording sound? Lauren slay this song in this recording,her voice is ready for country chart but the old motown arrangement is killing me)
- Stefano Langone (I can't do Hello anymore,that song is so popular everywhere,it's not even funny. Since I was a child,that song's been on everywhere,I can't stand it anymore. But at least Stefano did some unique arrangement with this song in the booth,I love the beat and the urban/hip-hop rhytm or whatever you called it. Hands down way better than his live performance)
- Haley Reinhart (I like this one although I don't see any major difference between studio and live version,except that it's longer and more processed)
- Scotty McCreery (this is interesting,with the beat and Scotty's twank voice. Major improvement from its live version)
- Pia Toscano (gosh,so beautiful. Give her a record deal already. We need a modern Celine for this era. Really love her phrasing,her tone,her vocal technique. This song although slow,but Pia killed it in the studio.)
- Paul McDonald (woah,this is good!! I'm very impressed. Paul's raspy soft voice is back on full form in this recording. I really love it. While his live performance made me daydreaming of Adam Lambert's version,this recording gives a different taste of the song.)
- Naima Adedapo (LMAO I'm loving the african dance's words in this song. So unique!! Naima you totally impressed me!! Maybe I can move you up from a contestant I hate to a contestant I look forward to for fun entertainment)
- James Durbin (solid recording,but I prefer the live version. It had more raw and oomph rather than this bland studio version)

My rank:
1. Naima Adedapo
2. Thia Megia
3. Paul McDonald
4. Pia Toscano
5. Casey Abrams
6. Stefano Langone
7. Haley Reinhart
8. Scotty McCreery
9. Lauren Alaina
10. Jacob Lusk
11. James Durbin

Tim Halperin Performs Something

Too bad he blew it on big stage. Before the Top 24 even performed,I had predicted him to be in Top 5 because of his stunning Beatles performance on Las Vegas week. Oh well!! Anyway,his original song "The Last Song" is great though. You guys should check it out!!

American Idol Season 10: Top 11 Result Show (DRAMATIC)

- Marc Anthony is funny. What's wrong with my channel?? It feels like zoom in.
- Ain't No Mountain High Enough is awful except for Pia and James outscream each other. I want to see more of that,they outdo each other in hitting the high notes.
- OMG Stevie Wonder!! Can we have Stevie Wonder week like in Season 5 again?? Plus he blew my mind away with his back to back performance on Season 8.
- I almost have a heart attack when Ryan says Lauren,Pia and Scotty are not safe. Whew another commercial.
- Damn it that Star World doesn't air Ford music video.
- What are you wearing,Jennifer Neetles?? Looks like you're wearing Joker's pants.
- I love Stuck Like Glue!! Sugarland is one of my most favorite group in recent years.
- LMAO at the wrestling video. I love these kids!!
- Hmm Paul and James aren't safe?? What do you mean,Ryan?
- LOL at Hulk Hogan. I love tonight's episode. So many twist!!
- Woah Stefano Langone at bottom 3??
- Ryan scares the viewers!! He wants us to stay in tune for whatever shocking might happen!
- Woah Casey bottom 3?? Shocking elimination??
- I don't like Jennifer Hudson's song. But that would be a showstopper performance if she were in contention.
- Thia is safe?? I opened my mouth in disbelief!! There goes my points in office pools!!
- I guess they will use the save then.
- Stefano is safe. Casey's the one in danger.
- He's singing his audition song.
- Randy stopped the music!! OMG!!
- He got saved!! Top 11 on Tour!!
- Holy shit,so DRAMATIC!!! I've never seen result show with this much drama!!

Captain America : The First Avenger Trailer

I was shocked that they make Chris Evans into a shorter and way skinnier version in the beginning part of the movie. I hope it will be good,I dunno if I can separate him with his Human Torch's persona.

American Idol Season 10: Top 11 Performances (Motown Week)

- "Steven Tyler is my mom's hall pass." LOL best quote tonight.
- Ryan Seacrest wasted 10 minutes on rambling and talking.
- Casey Abrams - I Heard It Through The Grapevine
Good!! He controlled his voice but I didn't think it's good enough for a caliber like him. Why this performance reminds me of Andrew Garcia?? Casey needs to bring it like in his Hollywood Week stat!! He's been losing my support drastically!!
- Thia Megia - Heatwave
Is she forgetting her lyrics? Why she's humming some parts in the song? It's so strange to me. I felt that she hasn't showed her all. The performance was very mediocre & karaoke-ish. Thia's just disappointing me week after week after week. Robotic,bland,like she doesn't have any soul.
- Are they intentionally putting awful performances in the beginning of each show each week???
- Jacob Lusk - You're All I Need To Get By
Very good!! He didn't overdo it with runs and screams. Plus he sassed it up big time!! LOL love to see this kind of performance. Very refreshing!!
- Lauren Alaina - You Keep Me Hangin On
What's the deal with them picking song for Lauren?? I don't like that. Btw very good performance also!! I love her swagger & attitude but I feel she could do it more. She has it in her. Dunno if I see stand out performance so far. The same old song choices are pretty much negative points for me.
- Stefano Langone - Hello
Good!! He didn't flounder but he's trying so hard to open his eyes. I agree with the judges,he's technically perfect tonight but I need to see his emotion like in his wild card performance. Stefano has major talent but he's pretty much do the same things stage wise every weeks for me personally.
- Woah at Gordon Ramsey's jab at Stefano's mom. Not nice!!
- Haley Reinhart - You Really Got A Hold On Me
She looked like a slutty office girl. LOL way to imitate Haley Scarnato's dress. Not that I complain. It might be her best performance. With soulful vocal,growl in the right place. Everything just seems perfect in this performance.
- Scotty McCreery - For Once In My Life
OMG at his mansion's pimping package. Oh woah,what an awful performance. With the forced singing,horrendous movement. Really made me cringe. So awful!! I really hate his head movement. Weird!! So far tonight was blah!!
- Jennifer Beals from L-Word is in the house. I love that show!!
- Pia Toscano - All Is Fair In Love
She just blew my mind everytime she sings on that stage. WOW!! What a perfect performance!! Without a flaw at all!! I agree with the judges,diversify it with uptempo performance so that the viewers won't get bored.
- Paul McDonald - Track of My Tears
NOOOO!! Don't sing Adam Lambert's showstopper rendition!! Paul did good but I played Adam's version in my mind. Not good!! Although I must say it's Paul best performance since Blackbird.
- Naima Adedapo - Dancing In The Streets
Woah,very unique!! I love this!! Not boring at all & she's not pitchy. One of the best performance of the night. African dance is amazing!!
- James Durbin - Living For The City
Very impressive!! He can do this song justice,Taylor Hicks killed it in Season 5,but James I must say did a great job. He's been doing so good these past few weeks compared to Casey.

Please no more Motown theme next season,I'm tired of the same old song choices year after year.

My rank:
1. Naima Adedapo
2. Pia Toscano
3. Haley Reinhart
4. Lauren Alaina
5. James Durbin
6. Jacob Lusk
7. Stefano Langone
8. Paul McDonald
9. Thia Megia

American Idol Season 10: Top 12 iTunes Recording Review

- Naima Adedapo (better than her live version,definitely got some beat in it but feels like a rap song. The melody is almost nonexistent. Why the heck they didn't put more rhytm on this Tina Turner classic?)
- Paul McDonald (I love Paul's soft tone in some part but I'm not a fan of his raspy voice. Definitely way better than his live performance. I love the background singer in the end. Love their harmonization with Paul. Overall,pretty decent recording)
- Thia Megia (OMG is this Thia's voice?? Why so different?? I feel like listening to Thia's mom voice. Although overall,it's good. Better than that awful live performance)
- James Durbin (holy moly,his voice at the beginning surprised me. I didn't recognize his vocal at all. I thought I'm hearing wrong song. But,I must say James's voice sounds like Bon Jovi. Solid recording,me think. He definitely could front a rock band. In the vein of Bon Jovi LOL)
- Haley Reinhart (Haley did a 90's tune in this song. Feel like thrown back into that era. Pretty nice!! I like it)
- Stefano Langone (no wonder people says that Stefano's voice reminds them of Elliot Yamin. I could see some Elliot's tone in his voice. Stefano definitely should sing a soulful song. That's his forte. You really can feel his passionate delivery in this recording. Really good stuff)
- Pia Toscano (this is THE BEST recording this week!! I love love it!! Full of beat,so catchy,fantastic arrangement. Really could see this song being played on Top 40 Radio. Pia should win this competition. I can see her topping the chart in the future)
- Scotty McCreery (it's hard to judge Scotty's recording,since he will be like this every weeks. He definitely ready to record an album. The right song could propel him on the chart. His recording this week though,it's too low of a voice for me. I prefer his live performance)
- Karen Rodriguez (maybe it's just me,but I really love Karen's tone. She excels at singing these type of song. Ballad pop songs. I really love these recording,could be a boring song for many people. But I like it)
- Casey Abrams (dunno what to say about this recording. Awful!! Maybe grunge fans will like this but I hate it. Casey shouldn't do a rock song with a rock arrangement.)
- Lauren Alaina (solid country version. Lauren's tone and vocal is recording ready. She will have a career on country music for sure!! I love the arrangement. One of the best this week!!)
- Jacob Lusk (very smooth!! I'm very impressed!! Jacob has his own take on this song. Very good recording!! I like it. I love the beat on the background)

My rank:
1. Pia Toscano
2. Lauren Alaina
3. James Durbin
4. Haley Reinhart
5. Jacob Lusk
6. Karen Rodriguez
7. Stefano Langone

Goku from Dragon Ball and Arale from Dr Slump Ask You To Help Japan

Simply by viewing this video!! I love them. They're my childhood manga. Best ever!!

American Idol Season 10: Top 12 Result Show

- OMG Gaga song on Idol
- I love these kind of mash up ala Glee. Unfortunately,tonight they didn't harmonize well enough. A lot of jarring moment in between.
- Thia Megia CAN sing Born This Way,the rest are stumbling. We get to hear a bit of their capability to sing current song,which is awful mostly. Don't go there,contestants!! Except Thia and Pia (from what I hear).
- Happy St Patrick Day. I love Irish melody.
- They pimped Lauren A & Pia Toscano on that video package.
- Woah Ryan Seacrest skipped Lauren Alaina's ditty.
- Haley Reinhart is in bottom 3 again. Sigh!! Maybe she should sing a bluesy rock song.
- Lee Dewyze's vocal is rough. I really don't like his performance. His run on Idol consists of being pitchy and pimped all the time. Crappy season!!
- I can't stand Black Eyed Peas!!!
- J-Lo is too obsessed with Stefano Langone. Makes me cringe all the time. I wonder what Marc Anthony thinks about that??
-Looks like Ryan always asks some advices from the judges to a contestant who will be in bottom 3. Hmm interesting!!
- What atrocity is this?? Awful!!! I love Fergie as a solo singer but BEP?? Nope!! I hate auto tunes.
- OMG!! Naima Adedapo is safe!! There goes all my points on office pools.
- Woah!! Karen is going home. I thought Latino voters will carry her through. Plus her mom is so endearing and cute. So my early prediction on her audition that she wouldn't make it far enough,is true afterall. A type of singer like her usually doesn't have a chance to go deep in Idol.
- Her voice cracked!! I feel so bad for her!!
- Well,my love of Karen began in her Hollywood Group Rounds,I found out that I love her tone. Plus,her itunes recording last week is the best recording from Idol contestant since Season 8.
- I hate David Cook's boot song. Doesn't have sentimental tone in it. Truly awful version of that song. I prefer Jared Lee - It's Over (Goodbye) for the boot song.
- I wish you well Karen!!

David Archuleta Video Blog: Happy St Patricks Day

I love it that he's rambling on and on and on. Don't stop,David!! It's so endearing.

American Idol Season 10: Top 12 Performances

- Naima Adedapo - What's Love Got To Do With It
Was she singing?? Or she's just saying out the words without the melody?? It's just lazy. The arrangement wasn't there at all. I even prefer Lil Rounds version on Season 8. It was way better than this. I think Naima can't do better than her Umbrella last week. Kudos for J-Lo for critiquing her.
- Paul McDonald - I Guess That's Why They Call It The Blues
Please Nigel,just give him guitar!! I just can't stand one more week of seeing him wandering around the stage. His vocal is okay. He's going down drastically in my rank. I even prefer Alex Wagner Trugman's awful version of that song in Season 8.
- Thia Megia - Colors Of The Wind
It was decent,bordering on boring. The arrangement just stayed there. They should fire all the producers who's working for these contestants!! So far,they have been awful. I can't stand the song choices. Please pick a song that hasn't been sung many times on Idol. LOL at Peggi Blue. Thia must've been scared to death on stage.
- James Durbin - I'll Be There For You
Now we're talking!! I like it!! James's getting more comfortable on that stage. He shows us that he's definitely bonafide rocker. By the end of his performance,I was nodding my head in approval. He didn't disappoint me with this performance.
- Haley Reinhart - I'm Your Baby Tonight
She's mumbling many parts of her performance. Her lipstick is very distracting. This doesn't bode well for her if she's unsure where's to go musically. The performance's just okay. I'm furious with the producers at this point. So many mediocre performances last week until now. Really disappoints me.
- Stefano Langone - If You Don't Know Me By Now
Wow,he sings from the heart. He put it all out. I felt it,Stefano!! No,J-Lo,don't be greedy!! Stefano should sing to us,not you!! Somehow the lyrics felt repetitive but overall,great performance.
- Pia Toscano - Where Do Broken Hearts Go
Awful song choice,me think,but Pia sang the heck out of that song. Impecabble vocal. I love her!! She can turn a bad song into an amazing performance. The dress however is a disaster. Looks like a jumpsuit.
- Scotty McCreery - Can I Trust You With My Heart
Amazing!! He personified a touring male country singer already. He pushed his vocal more and he picked the right song. I love it!! Amazing!! The country base will take him far.
- Karen Rodriguez - Love Will Lead You Back
Her notes were all over the place but overall still a solid performance. I know she could do more. I hope she find a perfect song for her. At least,I love this song. I really enjoyed this performance.
- Casey Abrams - Smells Like Teen Spirit
I don't know whether to love it or hate it. Some parts creeped me out. The end part he closed it really well though. I have a mixed opinion about this performance. Probably will be getting old after I watch it some more. Btw I love Casey's parents. Can they adopt me??
- Lauren Alaina - I'm The Only One
Her personality is just so annoying. I can't stand it,but I can't deny that she got an amazing vocal and great talent. She's just a pro on that stage. I love it!! I didn't see the cold hinder her except a lack of energy on some parts of her performance. But she came back after last week's disaster!!
- Jacob Lusk - Alone
Don't strangle the cat,Jacob!! Alone is the song that defined Carrie on her run on Idol Season 4. You just ruin it with too much high notes. When you sing in the lower register,that's when I enjoy it the most. Don't scream to me all the time!!

The beginning of the night was underwhelming but they picked up the performances until the end.

My Rank:
1. Pia Toscano
2. Stefano Langone
3. Lauren Alaina
4. Scotty McCreery
5. Karen Rodriguez
6. James Durbin
7. Jacob Lusk
8. Casey Abrams
9. Thia Megia
10. Haley Reinhart

I love her voice,even her manly voice has great tone. I love it!!

Alex Ryan Performs "Stop and Stare"

Alex Ryan,from this season Top 40 Finalist on American Idol sang Stop and Stare. I didn't know he could sing that high notes. I love his falsetto. Nice job,Alex!!

American Idol Season 10: Top 13 iTunes Recording Review

- Lauren Alaina (liveless,I don't recognize her voice,lacking of energy like in her live performance,I don't see the point of making this recording,just bland)
- Casey Abrams (I like this recording more than his live,it got more oomph,Casey can translate what he feels through this recording. I love listening to his tone too,less growl. Kudos!!)
- Ashthon Jones (I guess this is better than her live performance,at least she doesn't sing a flat notes. More lively arrangement too. If only for a bit.)
- Paul McDonald (his voice is so soft,even in recording,you can hear every phrases and words succintly. Dunno why but I like this one,I'm surprised. I don't know if I can like the song though.)
- Pia Toscano (I love her phrasing in this,but I prefer Celine's version of this song. Celine Dion's music is perfection to me. At least Pia could do it justice on the stage and got a decent recording of this song. That itself is a great job!!)
- James Durbin (I guess he does a great recording,but his voice is just not my cup of tea. I don't like rock voice. It's not my thing)
- Haley Reinhart (I don't see any differences in this recording versus her live performance. Haley's voice is suitable for country song though in my opinion)
- Jacob Lusk (was he drowsy when he recorded this?? No energy at all,I don't hear any passion being put in this recording,he seemed like winging it in that booth. Plus OMG it's 4 minutes song,if you want to put someone to sleep,better put this song on.)
- Thia Megia (what the heck with this arrangement?? Plus Thia sang it all over the place. Sometimes there is a good melody in there though,especially that instrument. I don't know what instrument it is that produces sound like that)
- Stefano Langone (Is it just me or Stefano's low voice isn't that good?? I don't like his low voice and nope,this recording wasn't good either. Very sleepy and the arrangement just blah)
- Karen Rodriguez (OMG this is just the best recording ever. I really like the melody. I love Karen's voice. It's very suprising. It's been on repeat on my player. I really really like the arrangement too)
- Scotty McCreery (this kid is ready for his music career. His voice is amazing in the recording. He'll probably be the best selling contestant from this seasons' crop. Still,I don't like the song. Somehow it's too boring for me)
- Naima Adedapo (excellent recording,Naima!! Great job!! I'm very impressed. I really love the reggae,the rap,or whatever it is. Really really good!!)

My rank of the studio recording:
1. Karen Rodriguez
2. Naima Adedapo
3. Paul McDonald
4. Casey Abrams
5. Pia Toscano
6. Thia Megia
7. Scotty McCreery
8. Haley Reinhart
9. Ashthon Jones
10. Lauren Alaina
11. Stefano Langone
12. James Durbin
13. Jacob Lusk

Of course,I'm bias about the recordings. A song that has good melody in it,I'd put it higher on my ranking. Must buy this week: Karen and Naima. Probably Scotty for country lover,James for rock fans,Paul and Casey still solid. The rest don't bother.

American Idol Season 10: Top 13 Result Show

-OMG,I hate the judges save. Why they keep bringing it back??
- The bed in the mansion are so small. LOL I can't even fit in there.
- Now,that was a very good group performance. Very nice!! It reminds me of S8 Top 13 performances.
- Jacob is so sassy!!
- Lauren Alaina is so giddy at that Red Riding Hood red carpet. LOL at their's star struck moment.
- The sound from Star World is killing me. Sometimes it disappears for a second.
- Karen Rodriguez is gorgeous!! She's a fun girl. I don't want her to go home yet. Who gonna take her place as an insider?? She took a lot of pictures and we,the fans,like it.
- ADAMMMMMMM!!! I love him!! Beautiful performance,the lyrics are so relatable to me. LOL at how to dougie.
- Can Lauren A be anymore annoying?? She appears to be very entitled. Always pouting and crying. Pretty much like a baby. I hate her personality right now.
- Haley and Ashthon are in bottom 3!!
- Woah,they never did that. Not reading the critique for the rest of the contestants.
- Coming Home is catchy. I love it that the judges paid attention to every performances.
- Wild Card spot is wasted on Ashthon. Damn it!!
- Black divas era on Idol is officially over!! Not a chance!! But really,Ashton isn't that strong either. Sigh.
- I hate David Cook's boot song

ps: I'm praying for Japan right now. I hope they're okay.

American Idol Season 10: Top 13 Performances

- Less lipstick is better,J-Lo. That's too bright.
- Lauren Alaina - Any Man of Mine
The tempo is so slow and the performance has low energy. It's killing me!! She's just like winging it. I don't like it at all. OMG please stop with the pouting!! Simon Cowell isn't even there,why the heck she's crying?? I begin to hate her,she just turns me off every weeks with her annoying personality.
- Casey Abrams - With A Little Help From My Friends
Ouch,jab at Joe Cocker. Somehow I feel dirty watching him saying something. This is a horrible performance. The gimmick already wears off. It's just bland and very awkward in some places. I didn't feel the connection at all. I'm beginning to shudder the rest of the night.
- Ashthon Jones - When You Tell Me That You Love Me
Oh God,please kill me!! This is a nightmare!! It's a karaoke and a very cheap impersonation of Diana Ross,and she fell flat at it. The worst performance from her so far. Just pick a good song,don't blindly follow what the judges said. This will be an awful night if it keeps on like this.
- Paul McDonald - Come Pick Me Up
It's an okay performance. LOL at he's jumping around the stage like a drunken kangaroo. This kind of song isn't my cup of tea but I applaud him for giving it all everytime,I really can feel his connection to the song.
- Pia Toscano - All By Myself
Pia can sing but it fell below my expectation. Boring arrangement. Sorry,I prefer Gina Glocksen's version of this song. Too bad!! I had such a high hope for her. Technically,she's a perfect singer though.
- Tonight they managed to tone down the bandzilla so far,but I feel that the sound didn't mesh well. It's like a separate compartment between the sound from the band and the sound from the contestant's mics.
- James Durbin - Maybe I'm Amazed
Crystal Bowersox killed this song last season. James just didn't do it for me. It's just blah. No,he's not special. Where's Adam Lambert when you need him??
- Haley Reinhart - Blue
at least it's decent. I love the yodeling. The arrangement is bordering on sleepy though. Only a hardcore country base will love this stuff. This is too oldies for me.
- Jacob Lusk - I Believe I Can Fly
Thanks God he hit those high notes. It salvaged the entire performance for me. The beginning was very underwhelming. So cheesy!!
- Thia Megia - Smile
woah at the fact that she doesn't know who Charlie Chaplin is. God,where's the euthanasia center?? I need to kill myself. This is so goddamn awful. OMG I can't wait for tonight to end. The performances so far were all horrendous. Steven is so useless at the judging table. It saddened me!!
- Stefano Langone - Lately
Help us,Stefano!! NOT!! He murdered the song. It turned into a crappy dance mess. I.Hate.This.Episode
- Karen Rodriguez - I Could Fall In Love
This is good,probably one of the best performance tonight. Not that good,but not awful either. I love the way she sung at the end. I hope she sing different song next week. Can't stand the pandering to latino base another week.
- This is taped. Imagine if its live?? I want the theme nights to return right now.
- Scotty McCreery - The River
okay,he's pretty good at his lane. I don't know which one is better,this one or the previous week one. 1 more performance. Gahhhh!!!
- Naima Adedapo - Umbrella
Thank you Naima for entertaining me. It's all over the place with rapping,dancing,etc. But it's very entertaining in this boring snoozefest excruciating night.

I don't even know how to sum up tonight's episode. The worst night ever this season,almost equal with Los Angeles audition. Probably even worse than AI9 Top 24 Guys performances. I never recall an episode that I hate so much,I can't wait for it to end. Felt like being in a torture chamber. I don't have a clue how to rank tonight's awfulness.

My Rank:
1. Pia Toscano
2. Haley Reinhart
3. Naima Adedapo
4. Karen Rodriguez
5. Jacob Lusk
6. Paul McDonald
7. Stefano Langone

- Why is Junebug crying??
- Clint & Jordan are not in. YES!!
- Jovany looks so yummy tonight!! He's not in too. YES!! I almost have a heart attack thinking the latino voters carrying him in.
- This's dragging on like snail
- LOL at Ashton. Everybody ignored her last night according to someone behind the scene. The guys are closer than the girls.
- I love Lauren Turner!! "If I got cut,America,I'm gonna cut u! LMAO. Love it!!
- Jennifer looks stoic all night. She doesn't move an inch in her chair.
- Lauren Alaina & Pia Toscano are in. Yes!!
- Dial Idol is wrong!!! LOL bye bye Ta-Tynisa!! Julie bye bye too!!
- So far so good
- The camera is epic fail tonight!! 2 mistakes!!
- Oh NO Kendra!! Holy shit,Ashton too!! Where's the black votes??
- Latino votes are so strong!! LOL at Randy's flabbergasted face.
- Team make-up FTW tonight!! Tim too looks dashing!!
- Jacob Lusk & Casey Abrams. Yes!!
- Lauren Turner looks defeated!! :(
- Thia is in. Oh the people power of Filipino votes.
- Brett is funny. I love him. He could be my ideal BFF if he lives in here.
- Paul McDonald is in!! Woah!! America sure loves WGWG!!
- Haley Reinhart is in!! Woah,never expected that. I feel sorry for Rachel.
- James Durbin is in!! Tourettes & autism base is strong,y'all!!
- Tonight is so slow. Thx God,Ryan picks up the pace in the last 30 minutes.
- Is J-Lo gonna have her video premiere tonight? 2 hours is not enough!!
- Woah,only 6!! 3 guys 3 girls!! NOOOO I want more girls.
- Ashton bores me. She doesn't bring anything new. She maintains the strength of that performance though.
- Marc Anthony should be jealous of Stefano. J-Lo looks so smitten with him. It's so obvious.
- He delivers!! I love it!! Very passionate performance. Stefano is growing on me!!
- YES!! Kendra!! OMG She ROCKED it!! OMG I'm so proud of her!!
- I don't know how can they withstand the pressure of this show.
- My heart paltipates right now.
- NOOO!!WTH!! Why Jovany?? He performs pretty good though. The song fits him nicely.
- They're in a hurry.
- Either Tim/Robbie gonna get called then. I don't know which to choose. Robbie is consistent although he appears very shy/cold to me. Tim's "Something" performance blew me away big time.
- Naima just not my cup of tea. That's all. I don't like her voice. Sorry.
- I'm in mourning for Lauren Turner.
- Robbie just perfect!! The best!!
- I'm sorry that Tim crashed down and burn. Here goes my prediction on IDF that he will probably in the Top 5.
- The judges are so biased to Naima,me think. I want Kendra please please please!!
- J-Lo is the most beautiful woman ever. She's not aging a bit. I hate that song though. Not.Unique.At.All-Very.Crappy.Generic.Song
- Ashton is in. Of course the black diva!!
- Stefano is in. His good looks and charisma will be needed for the Top 13.
- Naima is in. I hate her. Because of her backstory,the judges are letting her in. I want Kendra!!

Jacee Badeaux Performs God Bless The Broken Road on Ellen Degeneres Show

He made me cry. It's just so beautiful. I don't care whether he's too young or whatever. With a lot of practice and experience,he could be a killer contestant on Idol in the upcoming seasons.

Colton Dixon Performs What About Now on Ellen Degeneres Show

Great performance!! He should've been on Idol stage,rather than some douchebags in there. He could be a great contestants on Idol.

American Idol Season 10: Top 24 Girls Performances

Tonight's sound was horrible. I don't know what the heck with the band.

- Ta-Tynisa Wilson - Only Girl (In The World)
Okay,she's just female equivalent to Jordan Dorsey last night. Horrible song choice,the band overwhelmed her. WTF happened with the sound? She just looked uncomfortable on that stage singing that song. Full blown karaoke indeed!! I felt that she's just a fodder to open up the show and make the audiences excited.
- Naima Adedapo - Summertime
It was just awful. She's all over the place. She's wandering the stage aimlessly. I didn't feel any connection at all. Really felt like a lounge performance. Are they sacrificing themselves for the chosen ones??
- Kendra Chantelle - Impossible
OMG!! What an amazing performance!! I didn't know that she could hit that high notes. The way she sang the song just mesmerized me! She really felt every lyrics. Amazing!! She's a beautiful package indeed!!
- Rachel Zevita - Criminal
Woah,she just killed that song. Fierce!! Fierce!! That song isn't my cup of tea but she worked the stage,and woah at her opening. Very sexy!! I was just so impressed with her. Really special performance. I'm curious to see what she could bring to the table in the upcoming weeks.
- Karen Rodriguez - Hero
I love the Spanish part. Although I hate that song,that song should be banned forever. But Karen sang it the best she could. Definitely the best Hero rendition on Idol so far. Her vocal is just outstanding. I love her!!
- Lauren Turner - Seven Day Fool
woah,please calm down,Lauren's mom!! I was afraid she's gonna have a heart attack with her so excited like that. I didn't like that song. It just didn't showcase Lauren's big bluesy voice until the end part. She's great though. She brought the house down in the end. She just soared and roared like lion. I can' wait to see what she'll bring next. She's just testing the water with that one.
- Ashton Jones - Love All Over Me
I forgot that she's a contestant. I felt like watching R&B diva perform on the Grammy. She just showed so much confidence and really tore up that song. I think we've found our black diva this year after dry season since Season 6. Most of them chose mediocre song though,thanks God they have major talents.
- Julie Zorrila - Breakaway
Awful awful awful!! The band is killing her!! She's just out of her place and element. Very forced performance! Trainwreck!!
- Haley Reinhart - Fallin
I just hate this song with a passion!! The performance was just blah for me. I'll never like a performance with this song in it. She used too much acrobatic vocal and growl. Very awkward delivery also!! Why's Steven so useless these past 2 days?? Is it because he occupying Randy's previous seat??
- Thia Megia - Out Here On My Own
Impressive performance!! I didn't like the song though,the notes almost stays the same. I was just bored with that song,but she knocked it out of the park. The singing was just perfect!!
- Lauren Alaina - Turn On The Radio
probably the most catchy song tonight. She walked the stage like a pro,she's superstar,she's everything. I loved it!! She's really a combination of Kelly,Carrie and Katharine McPhee. The bandzilla better behave next time though,they're bulldozing everyone tonight with that loud arrangement.
- Pia Toscano - I'll Stand By You
That's why she got a huge online fanbase. She just blew the stage at the end. It reminded me of early season's big voiced singer. The song is okay,been done many times on Idol,but she astounded me at the end. Very very impressive!!

There will be bloodbath with the girls tomorrow. So many amazing talents!! Too bad I didn't like many of the song choices tonight.

My rank:
1. Kendra Chantelle
2. Pia Toscano
3. Ashton Jones
4. Lauren Alaina
5. Lauren Turner
6. Karen Rodriguez
7. Thia Megia
8. Rachel Zevita
9. TaTynisa Wilson
10. Naima Adedapo

American Idol Season 10: Top 24 Guys Performances

First thing first,I don't like the new big stage. I feel that it's smaller and less intimate than the usual stage for the top 24. The contestants already got their make up on. Some of them look so tanned!!
- Clint Jun Gamboa - Superstition
His performance was mediocre. I give it kudos that he can work the stage in his first performance but Ricky Braddy owned that performance on Season 8 Wild Card. No one can come close!!
- Jovany Barreto - I'll Be
Very uncomfortable performance. He's just a cannon fodder. Bye bye Jovany!! At least you can high that high notes,I'll give you that.
- Jordan Dorsey - OMG
This was trainwreck in the making ever since the first note. The vocal was bad. He looks and sounds desperate!! If this isn't the song for you,then why the hell you picked it in the first place??
- Tim Halperin - Streetcorner Symphony (Come On Over)
Ouch he definitely was out of his elements in here. Wrong song choice. He should've been with his piano. Totally can't picture him singing without instrument. He didn't "Do It Well",Jennifer!! Neither did that song of yours back then. Somehow the guys always make me cringe in their first live show.
- Brett Loewenstern - Light My Fire
Oh Brett,I love you but I wish for Colton Dixon to perform right now. It's just a weak performance. Very weird with the hair shaking but very interesting though. He didn't make an impression with that one. America will love him or hate him with that quirky dance.
- James Durbin - You've Got Another Things Comin'
OMG!! I hated it!! At least it stood out from the rest. Good choice maybe for him. I'm so happy for him though,he really enjoyed performing on stage. Can be very inspiring things for all child dealing with autism and asperger.
- Robbie Rosen - In The Arms of Angel
I liked it!! Robbie needs to work out the kinks with the band. His notes sometimes landed not in the right place,maybe the key or something else. He has potential though if he gets more comfortable on that stage
- Scotty McCreery - Letters From Home
I love Scotty when he poses,it's so funny. He's okay,he'll be singing with that low voice like that always. If he picks the right song,it'd be amazing!! Yes,it's very smart to stay in his country lane and shore up all the votes from the country base. He definitely locks for Top 13.
- Stefano Langone - Just The Way You Are
LOL at his footage,they only said he's hot. Seems like a cannon fodder. At first,he started with a thin voice and very awkward delivery but he soared after that. He exudes charisma and he worked that stage well. He hits that high notes. I really love his tone. He can be nasally sometimes,so better watch out for that. Overall,I loved it!! He got potential,just saw it tonight.
- Paul McDonald - Maggie Mae
I expected more from Paul. I think he did okay. The way he moves on stage is very unique though. His soft voice isn't everyone's cup of tea. He's a specific taste. Better be careful not to smile all the time,it's just bordering on creepy for me
- Jacob Lusk - A House Is Not A Home
Solid performance from Jacob. A bit too sassy at the beginning but he brought it in the end. I love his vocal,but tonight I expected more from him.
- Casey Abrams - I Put A Spell On You
Holy shit!! Be very afraid!! Be very afraid!! Casey just schooled all the 11 of thems. If he's not in the Top 3,I would cut a bitch. His performance was totally heartfelt. He felt every lyrics,I felt it too. It was amazing. I don't know how to be more excited after that.

Tonight's rank:
1. Casey Abrams
2. Stefano Langone
3. Robbie Rosen
4. Jacob Lusk
5. Tim Halperin
6. Scotty McCreery
7. Brett Loewenstern
8. Jovany Barreto
9. Paul McDonald
10. Clint Jun Gamboa
11. James Durbin
12. Jordan Dorsey
