Review: AMERICAN IDOL “9 Finalists Compete”

And we are down to the Top 9 on AMERICAN IDOL Season 7!

Tonight, the contestants performed songs from Dolly Parton. Let’s find out how they did.

1. Brooke White

AMERICAN IDOL - Brooke White

Thoughts: As the judges said, Brooke White is consistent every week, and every week I enjoy her performance. There isn’t much else to say. Brooke was once again very good.

Rating: 3/4

2. David Cooke

AMERICAN IDOL - David Cook

Thoughts: David Cook is freaking amazing! Every week he has the best performances! I think he is becoming my favorite guy of the competition (sorry Jason 🙁 )

Rating: 5/5

3. Ramiele Malubay

AMERICAN IDOL - Ramiele Malubay

Thoughts: Still don’t care about Ramiele. And like every week, I had even forgotten she was still in the competition. Her performance was, as Simon would put it, forgettable.

Rating: 2/4

4. Jason Castro

AMERICAN IDOL - Jason Castro

Thoughts: I don’t care what the judges say, I am still a fan of Jason Castro. I enjoy his performances and I thought he did really good tonight.

Rating: 3/4

5. Carly Smithson

AMERICAN IDOL - Carly Smithson

Thoughts: It’s sad to say, but I had a second there where I was like “Who is Carly again?” So, let’s just say that Carly has still not won me over. Actually I didn’t really pay attention to her performance, which means it wasn’t really captivating.

6. David Archuleta

AMERICAN IDOL - David Archuleta

Thoughts: I have to disagree with the judges, I was bored by David’s performance. Sorry no love for David Archuleta from me tonight.

Rating: 2/4

7. Kristy Lee Cook

AMERICAN IDOL - Kristy Lee Cook

Thoughts: Kristy did ok tonight. But I have a feeling she might be in the bottom three. I wonder if last week’s performance is enough to carry her another week?

8. Syesha Mercado

AMERICAN IDOL - Syesha Mercado

Thoughts: I thought Syesha was excellent. She’s been getting better and better. And I like the song picked and oddly enough I was able to enjoy it without thinking of the Whitney Houston version too much.

9. Michael Johns

AMERICAN IDOL - Michael Johns

So who’s going to be in the bottom three? Here are my predictions:

Kirsty Lee Cook, Ramiele Maluby, and I can’t decide between Carly Smithson or Jason Castro again.

Let’s tune in tomorrow to find out.
