Review: AMERICAN IDOL “Top 7 Performs”

Tonight on AMERICAN IDOL Season 7, the performances were all Mariah Carey songs.

I think that Simon was right when he said that the guys would have an advantage because they won’t be compared to the original.

Let’s find out how everybody did:

1. David Archuleta

AMERICAN IDOL - David Archuleta

Thoughts: I like David Archuleta but I wasn’t that excited about his performance. Am I hearing something different than the judges because I just thought it was ok, but not the one to beat of the night.

Rating: 2/4

2. Carly Smithson

AMERICAN IDOL - Carly Smithson

Thoughts: Carly was ok. I still have the same problem with her that I have every week, I don’t really feel anything coming from her.

3. Syesha Mercado

AMERICAN IDOL - Syesha Mercado

Thoughts: I had a feeling Syesha would do good tonight, and like I always say, the girl can sing. She did really good.

4. Brooke White

AMERICAN IDOL - Brooke White

Thoughts: Brooke White was just ok. Her voice wasn’t really powerful enough for the song and I think she wasn’t confident enough while performing.

Rating: 1/4

5. Kristy Lee Cook

AMERICAN IDOL - Kristy Lee Cook

Thoughts: You know what, I really liked Kristy Lee Cook tonight. I think she has a better voice than Carly actually.

6. David Cook

AMERICAN IDOL - David Cook

Thoughts: Best of the night!!! If David Cook doesn’t win the competition then I don’t get it. Although even if he does get eliminated, he is going to have a great career.

7. Jason Castro

AMERICAN IDOL - Jason Castro

Thoughts: Second best of the night. What is wrong with Randy? How can he not like Jason’s performance? Jason and David Cook ruled the night!

Rating: 4/4

So who’s going to be in the bottom three?

Well, seeing how wrong I and everybody was about the last elimination, nothing is guaranteed, but here is who I would put in the bottom three:

Carly Smithson, Kristy Lee Cook, and Syesha Mercado

Let’s tune in tomorrow and find out if I was right.
