Idol Top 9 - Kickin Butt


American Idol - Top 9 Perform!  Okay, so tonight we have nine folks singing and three sets of trios performing.  The best part? Stevie Nicks is the mentor!  Holy smokes!  I can't wait to see what happens here... As always, Y=Yes! N=No Way! ?=Not sure...

Colton - I hate to say no, since he is singing a song from LifeHouse, but I think this is the wrong song. Too low and rough at the start.  Once the chorus picked up, it was a little better, but something is still off key to me. I just don't think he picked the right LifeHouse song.

Skylar - Well, she already sounds like Miranda, so this should be a no-brainer. She's doing well. This is exactly the song she needed. Not sure if the voting folks will go for it, but it was great!

Colton, Elise, Phillip - Trio - Wow, they sound great together!  Nice job!

Heejun - Okay, wow. What a start! Are we sure this is Heejun!? Man, this is such a great song for him. Who knew? A little rough at the end, but wow!

Hollie - Ouch. Rough start. Hmm, something just isn't connecting here. I can't quite put my finger on it. Not her best. Not by a long shot.

Deandre - Not a fan of the in-and-out falsetto. He has a weird "Prince" sound he seems to be trying for, but he is missing it. Ugh.

Jessica - Shan didn't like the start. I like the pacing. Man, I really like this! Wow!

Deandre, Heejun, Joshua - Oh yeah! Some Michael Jackson! Well, started out fine. Then kinda went karaoke with "Rock with You" and "PYT." Not bad, but not as good as the first group.

Phillip - Gotta love Phillip! Rockin it out! Very distinctive voice that will carry far into the future. Part throwback, part modern. Love it. Best of the night so far!

Joshua - Hmm. It's not bad. I don't think it's great.  I think maybe the wrong song? I dunno. Something is just off here.

Jessica, Hollie, Skylar - Wow, WAY old school Madonna. Wow, Hollie does a great Madonna rendition. I like that tone in her voice. I wish she would sing like that all the time. Wow, very well done!! Great job!!

Elise - Led Zepplin!? Wow! And a duet with Stevie Nicks! Wow!!  Yeah!! Rockin out! Holy cow! This is great! She gets the gold for the night! She is a female Robert Plant made over. Amazing! Great!! What a killer ending!
