American Idol - Season 8: Top 13

Tonight's American Idol is Michael Jackson Night. AKA, you will suck tonight because it's nearly impossible to take an MJ song and make it your own...unless your David Cook.

Lil Rounds "The Way You Make Me Feel"
Nice way to start the show. Not the greatest, but it's good and already I can tell she's better than Fantasia, which is always a good thing.

Scott MacIntyre "Keep the Faith"
Awful song choice, but his vocal work was okay. Piano work was nice too. This could have been a lot worse.

Danny Gokey "P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing)"
Do. Not. Like. This. Song. Bleh. His vocals were fine, but I'm not a fan of the song. Pass.

Michael Sarver "You Are Not Alone"
Ugh. 2nd worst song choice of the night (#1 is coming soon) and a lackluster vocal. What were the judges thinking?

Jasmine Murray "I'll Be There"
Like the song, but yeah, not only is she going to be compared to the original but also Mariah. Dumb strategy. It also proved that her vocals are weak, weak, weak.

Kris Allen "Remember the Time"
Very impressed by this. Never heard the song before (although my brother claims I have) and a very good vocal. I liked it.

Allison Iraheta "Give In To Me"
Another impressive one. Glad to see she's making good on the promise that the judges saw in her. Very good.

Anoop Desai "Beat It"
Paula's right. You can't touch this song. Shame. Hopefully he can bounce back next week.

Jorge Nuñez "Never Can Say Goodbye"
This was odd. It was a good vocal or a good song, and I would have thought that most people in the world would know at least one MJ song. Guess not.

Megan Corkery "Rockin' Robin"
Can I just say "Massive Fail" and be done with it? Yikes.

Adams Lambert "Black or White"
Yup. Paula overdid it, but he was great. I just hope he can dial it down a notch next time, so he can show some range.

Matt Giraud "Human Nature"
Never heard this on either. Very nice. But it felt very short. Hope he gets to stick around.

Alexis Grace "Dirty Diana"
Good. The last note kinda sucked, but everything else was good. Best of the ladies.

1. Adam Lambert
2. Alexis Grace
3. Allison Iraheta
4. Kris Allen
5. Matt Giraud
6. Lil Rounds
7. Danny Gokey
8. Scott MacIntyre
9. Anoop Desai
10. Jasmine Murray
11. Michael Sarver
12. Jorge Nuñez
13. Megan Corkery

Bottom Three Predictions:
Jorge, Jasmine and Megan. My guess is the twist is America votes out one person and the judges vote out another. So no Bottom Two.

Goodbye to...
America votes out Jorge Nuñez and Simon, Paula, Randy and Kara tell Jasmine Murray to peace out!
