American Idol Recap – Who’s Going Through?

I don’t normally write about the recap shows, so I’ll make this a quick one.  Kudos to the American voters for doing an admirable job of voting in a solid group of 5 guys and 5 girls.

TOP 5 GUYS VOTED IN (in no particular order, except alphabetical)
Casey Abrams
James Durbin
Jacob Lusk
Scotty McCreery
Paul McDonald

TOP 5 GIRLS VOTED IN
Lauren Alaina
Thia Megia
Haley Reinhart
Karen Rodriguez
Pia Toscano

After the judges, gave 3 more guys (Stefano Langone, Jovany Barreto and Robbie Rosen) and 3 more girls (Ashthon Jones, Kendra Chantelle and Naima Adedapo) one more chances to sing for a 3 wild card spots.  Which means it’s the end of the road for Jordan Dorsey (no Artest meltdown), Clint Jun Gamboa (shouldn’t have been mean to Jacee Badeaux), Tim Halperin (who?) and Brett Loewenstern (who might have gotten zero votes).  Also leaving for good is Lauren Harris (not made for TV), Ta-Tynisa Wilson (ta-ta), Julie Zorrilla (not gorilla) and Rachel Zevita (woooooo, victory!)

Ashthon Jones – terrible performance when singing for one’s career, but I have a feeling the judges love her too much to not let her thru.

GRADE:  C-

Stefano Langone – awesome, he resurrected my faith in him, should be a lock for the Top 13.

GRADE:  A-

Kendra Chantelle – Maggie loves her voice (more than Pia), and this was good, but it’s hard to mess up “Georgia On My Mind”

GRADE:  B

Jovany Barreto – we have some lovely parting gifts for you, thanks for boring us again.

GRADE:  C-

Naima Adedapo – shaky beginning, but picked it up towards the end.  Steven Tyler loves her no matter what, so she could have sang just about anything here.

Robbie Rosen – ok, but man I’m gonna miss that gigantic honker of his.

GRADE:  C+

Not surprisingly, Ashthon, Stefano and Naima are thru, so here are your Top 13 in order of how I rank them….

MY OVERALL TOP 13
1. Lauren Alaina
2. Casey Abrams
3. Pia Toscano
4. Paul McDonald
5. Stefano Langone
6. Scott McCreery
7. Naima Adedapo
8. James Durbin
9. Jacob Lusk
10. Karen Rodriguez
11. Ashthon Jones
12. Haley Reinhart
