AMERICAN IDOL “Top 13 Finalists Compete” Review

The Top 13 performed tonight on AMERICAN IDOL Season 8 for the first time.

The theme tonight was Michael Jackson’s songs. Let’s find out how everybody did:

Lil Rounds

Lil Rounds - American Idol Top 13

Song: “The Way You Make Me Feel”

Thoughts: I really don’t understand what the judges see in her. She is a good singer, but she is just boring to me. No “wow” factor.
Judge I agree the most with: Simon

Rating: 2/4

Scott MacIntyre - American Idol Top 13

Song: “Keep The Faith”

Thoughts: This is the first time I actually enjoyed Scott’s performance a lot. Didn’t know the song, but now I like it.

Danny Gokey

Danny Gokey - American Idol Top 13

Song: “P.Y.T.”

Thoughts: I like Danny and I enjoyed this performance, the song is not my favorite so it was hard to get into it. He is still one of my favorites though.

Tomorrow night two people will go home (to make up for the top 13, that didn’t last long). Who do I think they are? I would put my money on Anoop Desai, as for the second one, it could be either Michael, Jasmine, Megan, or Jorge.

Don’t forget to tune in tomorrow to find out who goes home.
