The Top 12 for American Idol 2010 are here and whether you like it or not (and from last Thursday’s reactions, most of you do not) these are the dozen hopefuls you’ll have to pick from as we whittle our way down to crowning a winner.
Tonight’s performances will feature both the girls and guys on the same night for the first time of the season as they break out the Rolling Stones’ catalog of songs. Oh poor Tyler Grady, he must be rolling in his grave to know this would have been his chance at 60’s British Invasion Rock. I’m not so sure how these singers will handle the Stones, but they’ll definitely have some great tunes to pick from. Anyone want to try and predict who calls dibs on Sympathy for the Devil? I just want a solid job on Paint It Black and I’ll be happy to call it a night.
Check back in tonight at 8PM as we discuss the 2-hour show live in our Idol chat room! Stay on top of the latest American Idol news when you follow us on Twitter!
OK so I am starting with a clean slate tonight. I will watch with an open mind and allow them all to wow me..even Tim Urban. I will not prejudge before the performances, so my distaste for Micheal Lynch is pretty much gone. he he
Matt, Siobhan is singing “Paint it Black” so maybe you will get your wish. 🙂
Ashley, how do you know what she is she singing tonight? Is there a website that tells you?? Thanks!
Josh, Access Hollywood reported it a couple of days ago.
I think its going to be very interesting tonight to see how these contestants handle the Stones. IMO I think the judges are going to confuse the hell out of these top 12 tonight. This song is too big, you didn’t make it your own, you changed it too much….how can you make a Rolling Stone song your own….TOUGH JOB!!!!!!
Looking forward to this show tonight….I think this might separate the good from the not so good!!!!!!
@Ashley: Ahh, well she should do it well then.
I agree with PHYLLIS G.(LAS VEGAS, NV) These guys might be discourraged because of the judge comments. Tonight I am crossing fingers for Andrew to Shine and of course I am certain Siobhan will do great. Anyway good luck to all
I read that paige has laryngitis and swollen throat but is still planning on singing.
I also agree with Phyllis G., but let me add I think Crystal and Lee are the only singers (no matter about voices), that can handle a Stones tune. And, even they have to choose the right tunes. This songbook will prove to be a very big obstacle. You can’r duplicate Mick Jagger, and if you try you’ll be sent home. I do wish them Godspeed.
MICHAEL W….I AGREE 100%….I THINK SIOBHAN SHOULD NAIL IT TOO…WE JUST HAVE TO WAIT AND SEE TONIGHT….
lacey needs to go home shes really annoying and lee or crystal have to win it
Very disappointed with Kara tonight especially with her comments about Andrew Garcia, He’s great, she was really mean towards him tonight, Kara should have been as harsh towards Lacey, she was terrible. Does anyone out there agree with me.
I thought that the judges comments were more helpful tonight in helping the contestants make progress and assess their performances. That being said, I sure didn’t feel any of the 60’s angst from the crew. I guess that you had to be there to get the same emotional understanding…..sigh
I agree with Phyllis from Las Vegas Siobhan nailed it, Crystal is awesome too, Crystal and Siobhan are unique that star quality, they both can sing all kinds of ranges, I would like to see those 2 ladies top 2, We’ve never seen 2 ladies in the final top 2.
as an aside, those pre-song interviews are supposed to add to the listeners understanding of the artist..but how about if the background is painful and it knocks them off their game?
Might not be adding to the performance.
LINDA…FINALLY A PERSON WHO GETS IT….THE TOP THREE SHOULD BE (IMO) SIOBHAN, CRYSTAL AND LEE……IF SIOBHAN KEEPS ITS UP SHE SHOULD BE THE WINNER BUT CRYSTAL WILL PROBABLY WIN IT BECAUSE AMERICA DOES NOT LIKE “DIFFERENT”…
LAST YEAR WAS A PERFECT EXAMPLE….ADAM HAD IT ALL OVER KRIS BUT ADAM DIDN’T WIN……DAUGHTRY HAD IT ALL OVER TAYLOR HICKS…HE DIDN’T WIN….AMERICA LOVES SWEET AND THATS PROBABLY WHY CRYSTAL WILL WIN AND SHE IS A VERY GOOD SINGER BUT SIOBHAN HAS MY VOTES FROM HERE ON OUT!!!!
would someone please tell me what the contestants will be singing next week? did not get to see the last of show. thx
