American Idol 2013 Season 12: Top 8 Live Performances

Top 8 on American IdolWhat can we expect from the American Idol finalists in the Top 8? We have American Idol spoilers for the song choices already to go along with the theme of “Motown Hits.” These hopefuls are primed to take on these classics and we can’t wait to hear how it turns out.

We’ve made our song suggestions as to what they should sing and for the most part, if the rumors are true, they’ve disregarded our ideas for some interesting alternatives. Fan favorites Angie Miller will be performing “Shop Around” by Smokey Robinson, who is this week’s Idol mentor, while Candice Glover delivers “I Heard It Through The Grapevine.” This should make for an incredible night of live show American Idol season 12 performances.

Will the boys survive another difficult week of fierce competition from the girls? We’d be surprised by that turn of events, but we’re always ready to root for an underdog. By the end of the night we’ll have a strong idea of who will be moving on to the Top 7 stage. Join us at 8PM for our live recap with video coverage of the Top 8 performance show.

Now vote for which Idol finalist you think had the best performance tonight on Idol and should move on to next week’s show.




  1. candice was great and devins song i liked too stop pitting lazaro and send him home he cannot sing its too much pressure for him he doesent remember the words the girls are overpowering the guys judge the contestants on how they perform not on what they do or do not wear this is a singing competition not a fashion show

  2. First, let me repeat what I said last week. I have ABSOLUTELY no confidence in the process. It is manipulated to have the
    results that they want. The last 2 seasons when the title was STOLEN from James and Jessica, both of whom were clearly better that the winners, should serve as proof.

    Now, Angie won the night followed very closely by Kree & Candice.

    These 3 are clearly above the rest.

    Janelle and Amber are very good but not nearly as good as the top 3.

    I don’t care what the judges think, Lazaro was very good and he will be the only guy left standing when the dust clears.

    PLEASE get rid of Devin this week and Burnell next week. I can’t take much more of these 2.

    Prediction. Angie wins it all. She is the whole package. She has looks, personality, great stage presence and last but not least a PHENOMENAL voice.

    Finally, please fire Nicki. Her stupid inane comments are just too hard to take.

    For next season, keep ONLY Randy, bring back Jennifer & Steven and watch the ratings soar.

    I welcome comments.

    • You are braindead if you think Devin should go home and you actually think Lazaro did good, which in my opinion, is the worst singer in the past 4 seasons combined.He forgets lyrics, not once, not twice, he thinks this is a joke. Look at you, Angie should win, your reasons? She has the looks. This is NOT a who’s the best looking out there, it’s a singing competition, which in that case the top 3 should be Candace, Kree and Amber.

      Also, Please STOP crying about the judges, they don’t CARE about you, they will not listen to you, stop asking for the past judges to come back, it will not happen stop being so pathetic. Are people watching this show because of the judges or the singers? I know I’m watching it because of the singers, nothing else.

  3. Gotta say, I really miss Paul Jolly! He’s a real artist. So for the ppl who are left…Kree is the one who I’d like to see win but we all know it’s going to be Angie.

  4. everytime Amber Holcomb sings ..i feel the sincerity of the composers lyrics , it blend with her voice..and she’s beautiful!
