American Idol - Top 13 - 3/10


America's Top 13 will take the stage for the first time and battle it out for the AI crown. A new Idol stage will be revealed when the Top 13 finalists perform live in a two-hour show on Tuesday, March 10 (8/7c) on FOX. Tune in the following night, Wednesday, March 11 (9/8c) to the live results show to see Kelly Clarkson perform her smash single "My Life Would Suck Without You," watch Kanye West entertain the audience with his hit "Heartless," and find out who receives enough votes to stay in the competition and who is sent home.

The AI Top 13 are:
Spoiler:

The last time I heard Kanye "sing" live was on SNL. I can't imagine even the sorriest contestant in this bunch doing a worse job than Kanye did on that show. Maybe he's on here to make the other contestants sound better by comparison?

Re: American Idol - Top 13 - 3/10

Spoiler:
Rumors are that American Idol was cheap or short-sighted and only has the phone line numbers for the 01-12 contestants i.e. 1866-idols01 through 12. All other numbers including 13 and 00 belong to a adult phone chat line. The 13th candidate i.e. the pimped/chosen one will get his/her special number ... or perhaps immunity unless AI can make a deal with the adult chat line.

Did Paula just tell Scott that it was good to see his instrument at his fingertips!? Simon who was in the camera shot laughed.

I see charm and humor runs in Seacrest's family

Kind of wish Tatiana was on tonight's show to sing "Saving All My Love For You".

You would think that Matt Giraud is the Second Coming of JT.

Re: American Idol - Top 13 - 3/10

OK, did those judges see a different performance from Adam Lambert that I did!? Because I thought he was HORRENDOUS! I mean, it was shrill, over the top and downright embarrassing.

Re: American Idol - Top 13 - 3/10

So there's going to be a TWIST to AI this season? Beyond having a Top 13? And it involves the judges?

My guess is this...

Spoiler:
From the Bottom 3 they will have a sing off and the judges will decide who is sent home similar to SYTYCD.

I agree 1000%... It was ridiculous how much that sucked. I just dont get this season so far, and its pretty early on.

Wow, your assessment was kinder than mine Axel Rose screams really well. Adam Lambert? No. And he's such a poseur. Seeing all those pics of him in drag. And now a "punk".

Re: American Idol - Top 13 - 3/10

I wonder if Alexis Grace will be hurt by the fact that they had to rush to get in on before everybody's DVRs cut off and they had to have a special phone number for her.

She looked really hot tonight in her naughty little black leather mini skirt.

I hate the rolling screen behind the contestants. It's distracting during the interviews and made me dizzy...

Ditto. I can't stand his voice and him. I would turn the station if his voice is on the radio.

Re: American Idol - Top 13 - 3/10

I didn't find Anoop to be nearly as bad as the judges did.

I also told my wife that Scott should have done "Man in the Mirror"

Re: American Idol - Top 13 - 3/10

My power went out for twenty minutes so I missed the judges comments on Allison and both Anoop and Jorge's performances.

From what I saw, I liked Danny quite a bit (and I'm not really a Danny fan...though I was a fan of his dead wife). I also really liked Allison.

On the bad side, I thought Adam was just awful. I have no idea what the judges were watching there. I also don't think Scott would be in the top 13 if he wasn't blind. I hate the song that Michael sang. Megan's performance seemed horribly dated, and she's just so weird on stage.

Picking who goes home...I think Jasmine is in trouble. I think Jorge is in trouble (what I saw on the recap wasn't good though no matter what he'll have Puerto Rico voting for him), and I wouldn't be surprised if Meagan or Michael was in trouble.

I thought Adam was good. He's comfortable, does his thing, and does it well. Whether you like him or not, he stands out more than most of them.

Re: American Idol - Top 13 - 3/10

i dont understand why the judges say that adam is so relevent. he sings like an 80's hair metal singer. i dont know of any popular bands right now that sing like that. oh and he looks like a tool....on and off stage.
