5. Carly Smithson

AMERICAN IDOL - Carly Smithson

Thoughts: Yes, she was pretty good. Although I will admit that she is not my favorite. I don’t know what it is, but I just cannot get excited about her. She can sing though, that’s for sure.

6. David Cook

AMERICAN IDOL - David Cook

Thoughts: I didn’t like it as much as last week, but it was ok. I definitely don’t think it was as good as Simon said. What is up with that, I usually agree with Simon, but tonight not at all. He will be back next week for sure.

9. Amanda Overmyer

AMERICAN IDOL - Amanda Overmyer

Thoughts: For some reason, Amanda Overmyer is not winning me over. I really liked her at the beginning, but lately I haven’t enjoyed her performances that much. Maybe it’s the song choice, but either way, I don’t really care about her right now.

Rating: 2/4

10. Michael Johns

AMERICAN IDOL - Michael Johns

Thoughts: He gets points just for picking “Across the Universe” as his song. Other than that I thought he did pretty good. Not amazing but good enough for me. He’ll be back next week.

11. Kristy Lee Cook

AMERICAN IDOL - Kristy Lee Cook

Thoughts: I’m not sure how I feel about her performance. I like Kristy Lee Cook and I didn’t thought the performance was terrible, but it wasn’t great. I don’t think the country twist was a good idea at all.

Rating: 2/4

12. David Archuleta

AMERICAN IDOL - David Archuleta

Thoughts: And David Archuleta crashes and burns tonight. It was just not good. I feel bad because you could tell that he was nervous, but you know, it’s a competition so that’s just the way it is, you can’t choke on stage. He’ll be back next week though, I’m not worried.

Rating: 1/4
