Review: AMERICAN IDOL “Top 8 Girls”

Tonight, it was time for the top 8 girls to lay it all out on Season 7 of AMERICAN IDOL.

It’s time to find out how they did:

1. Asia’h Epperson

AMERICAN IDOL - Asia’h Epperson

Thoughts: I thought this was boring. Like Simon would say, Asia’h is just forgettable to me. I don’t care if she stays or goes.

Rating: 2/4

2. Kady Malloy

AMERICAN IDOL - Kady Malloy

Thoughts: First of all, I absolutely love “Who Wants to Live Forever” by Queen, but the only problem I had with Kady’s performance is that I kept comparing it to Katharine McPhee’s performance of it, and unfortunately she was just not as good. If someone needs to go tonight, I think I might have to pick Kady. And wasn’t she in the bottom three last week anyway?

3. Amanda Overmyer

AMERICAN IDOL - Amanda Overmyer

Thoughts: It was pretty good, but I noticed that I am not as excited about Amanda Overmyer as I used to be at the beginning. I do think she will make the top 12 though.

5. Kristy Lee Cook

AMERICAN IDOL - Kristy Lee Cook

Thoughts: This is my favorite performance of hers so far. I thought she really improved. Now if only she had started out that way. I would like her to stick around, but I’m a little worried.

6. Ramiele Malubay

AMERICAN IDOL - Ramiele Malubay

Thoughts: I didn’t like this as much as her last performances , but I still think she’s sweet. Although I’m not sure if she is going to make the top 12, and to be honest I don’t really care either way.

7. Brooke White

AMERICAN IDOL - Brooke White

Thoughts: First of all, what is wrong with Randy and Paula? Did we listen to the same thing? This was AMAZING!!! Thank you Simon for recognizing Brooke’s great performance. She puts so much emotion into her performances , I love her. She is absolutely making it to the top 12.

8. Syesha Mercado

So who’s going home and who’s making the top 12?

I’ll admit that I’m not really sure who’s going to go home, but what I can tell you is whom I would like to see in the top12:

Amanda Overmyer, Syesha Mercado, Brooke White, Kristy Lee Cook, Carly Smithson, and Ramiele Malubay

So I guess that leaves out: Asia’h Epperson and Kady Malloy

Now that’s probably not going to happen, but it’s just my choice.
