Review: AMERICAN IDOL “Top 10 Girls”

It was time for the Top 10 girls on Season 7 of AMERICAN IDOL to perform. And tonight I am sorry to say, the girls didn’t blow me away either. With the exception of Brooke White, whom I am loving more and more, the rest was just good, but nothing to write home about. When is this competition finally going to start and get exciting? The top 12 cannot come soon enough.

Anyway, moving on the my review:

1. Carly Smithson

AMERICAN IDOL - Carly Smithson

Thoughts: I know the judges love her, but so far I am not that impressed with her. I personally don’t think she is the one to beat. I do like her voice, but she hasn’t done something that has wowed me yet. For sure though she is sticking around this week.

Rating: 2/4

2. Syesha Mercado

AMERICAN IDOL - Syesha Mercado

Thoughts: I just think Syesha is just so cute and sweet I really like her personality. The performance this week was not as good as last week, but I’m still rooting for her. She makes me smile.

3. Brooke White

AMERICAN IDOL - Brooke White

Thoughts: This is the second week I absolutely love her. My favorite of the girls. She is living proof that having a big voice is not everything, you need to have personality and emotions when you sing as well.

Rating: 4/4

4. Ramiele Malubay

AMERICAN IDOL - Ramiele Malubay

Thoughts: This week was not as good as last week, but I am still impressed by the voice that comes out of her. Still, it was a pretty forgettable performance. I hope she does better next week.

5. Kristy Lee Cook

AMERICAN IDOL - Kristy Lee Cook

Thoughts: WAY better than last week. I will have to admit though, I don’t think that the performance was that great and I’m not sure she will be sticking around, which sucks because I really like her personality. Here’s hoping she sticks around a little longer.

6. Amanda Overmyer

AMERICAN IDOL - Amanda Overmyer

Thoughts: What happened to her? This was really bad and the worst part is that I love that song, she killed Kansas.
(Geek moment: Guitar Hero II, “Carry On Wayward Son” is one of my favorite songs to play on it 😉 ) Back to Amanda, I am a little worried about her sticking around this week.

7. Alaina Whitaker

AMERICAN IDOL - Alaina Whitaker

Thoughts: One of my favorite “Grease” songs. She did a pretty good job actually. I am still a fan. She has impressed me so far. I think she’s going to be sticking around.

8. Alexandréa Lushington

AMERICAN IDOL - Alexandréa Lushington

Thoughts: First of all, as much as Alaina was old-fashioned (according to Simon), you cannot come out and sing a ballad wearing what Alexandréa was wearing tonight. I just couldn’t take her seriously. You have to dress the part and I honestly had a hard time watching her performance. I guess the voice was ok.

9. Kady Malloy

AMERICAN IDOL - Kady Malloy

Thoughts: This is the second week that I am rooting for Kady Malloy and the second time she has disappointed me. On paper, this girl should be awesome, but when she gets on stage it just doesn’t happen. I’m going to give her one more shot, but if she doesn’t step up then I’m not going to care about her anymore.

10. Asia’h Epperson

AMERICAN IDOL - Asia’h Epperson

Thoughts: I agree with Simon that the song was a little too big for her, but I still think she did a really good job, especially compared to everybody else tonight.

So who’s going home? I will honestly say, I have no idea. And that’s not because everyone was so good, it’s because most of them were just good and there isn’t really one that stands out to me, well maybe except Brook White.
