American Idol 2014 – Recap – Top 13

Randy Jackson is sittin with the Top 13 before they perform. Sigh.

Is it just me or does the new American Idol set look like a mini-fied Dancing with the Stars set?

Theme: “This Is Me”

The contestants chose their own songs tonight. #ThisIsMe

Contestant Song Voting Number
Dexter Roberts Aw Naw 1-855-4-IDOL-01
Review: I could not understand the words he was singing. He played the electric guitar. Harry Connick Jr. flatout said he sang out of tune.
Malaya Watson Runaway Baby 1-855-4-IDOL-02
Review: This was not good. She was out of tune. This didn’t sound good at all. Malaya’s personality is great though.
Kristen O’Connor Beautiful Disaster 1-855-4-IDOL-03
Review: This was just OK for me. Kristen is the “hot” girl this season so she will go very far no matter what she sings. I think at least Top 6.
Ben Briley Folsom Prison Blues 1-855-4-IDOL-04
Review: Ben sang a Johnny Cash song on Cash’s brithday! Very smart. Cash fans would have noticed this. Great way to send a message to his target demo. Good job.
CJ Harris Radio 1-855-4-IDOL-05
Review: I like CJ but this was not a good vocal. He played guitar which was a nice touch. However, this was just not ready for primetime at all.
MK Nobilette Satisfaction 1-855-4-IDOL-06
Review: This was OK. I wasn’t blown away. The best vocal of the night so far (not saying a lot). But she has no stage presence! I wanted a bit more from her.
Majesty Rose Tight Rope 1-855-4-IDOL-07
Review: Go Majesty! Best vocal of the night so far. And she has a great personality about her. Good job.
Jena Irene The Scientist 1-855-4-IDOL-08
Review: OK she has affected singing. But I like her. So I like the affected singing, even if I shouldn’t. It’s JEEEENA b##ches. Vote! Vote! Vote!
Alex Preston A Beautiful Mess 1-855-4-IDOL-09
Review: This was a great vocal! OK I like Alex now since he’s saving this show for me right now. Thank @god was have Alex on the show. He should last long. He must. Can he win? Maybe!
Jessica Meuse Crow and the Butterfly 1-855-4-IDOL-10
Review: Solid vocal! Great job. And great song choice to represent herself. Very good.
Emily Piriz Glitter In The Air 1-855-4-IDOL-11
Review: I think she was nervous. It sounded like she was having difficulty singing… up until she reached the high notes. I think this was too low a key. She also need to do this while hanging up in the air.
Sam Woolf Unwell 1-855-4-IDOL-12
Review: GO SAM WOOLF! He needs to win American Idol! GO GO GO VOTE VOTE VOTE
Caleb Johnson Pressuring Time 1-855-4-IDOL-13
Review: Great song choice. American Idol fans LOVE LOVE LOVE this kind of stuff. Good job!
