American Idol 2013: Bryant Tadeo Cut After Performing ‘New York State Of Mind’


One of the biggest tragedies during the building of the American Idol 2013 Top 20 was Bryant Tadeo’s elimination during last night’s final “Sudden Death” rounds.

I thought his performance of Billy Joel’s “New York State of Mind” was one of the best performances of the night. But for some reason the judges and/or production didn’t think so. Or they did think so and that’s why he got cut. Who knows. Fans seem to disagree as it’s YouTube’s most-viewed performance video from last night.

I had a feeling he was at risk because he hasn’t gotten much of an edit. But after I heard him sing last night I thought maybe there was a chance. No. He’s out. What did you think of his performance? If you missed it or want to check it out again, we’ve got it below.

Do you think the judges made the right decision by cutting Bryant?
