American Idol Season 10 – Top 12 Guys Performance

Tonight the Top 12 guys perform their solos and the viewing audience will then vote for their favorite contestant.  The results will be released this Thursday and according to what Ryan said tonight, the Top 10 will be announced that night.  That would mean that seven guys and seven girls would be cut.  We did some research on this and the “word” seems to be that it will be six guys and six girls will cut because of a “wild card” save on both groups.  (They (AI) sure do seem vague on the real definition of the results).

The judges, Randy, Steven, and J-Lo will only give their opinion after each performance.  The decision is up to the viewing audience based on the vote getting power of each contestant.

Tonight AAN invited Gabrielle (5 year old grand daughter), Jenna, and Jojo to be judges and to please rate each contestant on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest rating.  Gabrielle elected to use “X” for did not like and “:)” for like.

Here are the tonight’s performances in order of appearance:

1] Clint Jun Gamboa – Song: Superstition
His vocals were good and overall he did a good job and he made an old song his own.
Jojo – 5 – Soso
Gabrielle –:) 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

2] Jovany Barreto – Song: Greatest Fan of Your Life
He started slow, but the performance got better from the middle to the end.
Jojo – 5 – Fair Performance
Gabrielle – XXXXXXXX
Jenna – 6

3] Jordan Dorsey – Song: (?)
So-so performance and the song choice was NOT good at all.
Jojo – 4 – Off key and all over the place
Gabrielle –:) 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Jenna – 7

4] Tim Halperin – Song: Come Together
The vocals were fairly good, not outstanding.  Performance was too karaoke and the song choice was NOT a good one.
Jojo – 4 – Sounds nervous – shakey voice
Gabrielle — 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Jenna – 7

5] Brett Loewenstern – Song: Light My Fire
We thought this was a bad song choice at first, but Brett went on to make this song his own with a very good arrangement and some pretty good vocals.
Jojo – 6 – Weak start – Redeemed himself later
Gabrielle — 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Jenna – 8

6] James Durbin – Song: Another Thing Coming
We were waiting for this performance and we were NOT disappointed at all.  The vocals were great along with the energy, and stage presence.  This is what this show is all about.  Bravo James!
Jojo – 10+ — A star is born!
Gabrielle — 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Jenna – 10 – The best one

7] Robbie Rosen – Song: Arms of the Angels
This was a so-so performance and his vocals were off.  Not a very good song choice at all.
Jojo – 5 – Fair – Not a good song choice

8] Scotty McCreery – Song: A Letter From Home
This was an excellent country style performance and his vocals were “spot on”.  As good as James was with his rock style tonight, Scotty was as good with this country song. It was a perfect song choice.  Bravo!
Jojo – 10 – Next country music star.

9] Stefano Langone – Song:Just the Way You Are
He started slow but from the middle to the end improved and it was not all that bad.
Jojo – 7 – Very good – Clear !

10] Paul McDonald – Song: Maggie Mae
This was a very good performance and he made the song his own, which is very hard to do with this classic Rod Stewart song.  It was a great song choice and Paul has a very unique vocal quality that we really like.  Bravo!
Jojo – 10 – My favorite from the start.

11] Jacob Lusk – Song: House is Not a Home
Excellent vocals and great arrangement along with one of the best blues style vocals we have heard on American Idol.
Jojo – 10 – A professional

12] Casey Abrams – Song: I put a Spell on You
Because Casey is so different we were looking forward to his performance tonight and he was once again different than all the rest.  The song choice and arrangement were perfect along with his vocals and stage presence.  Bravo!
Jojo – 10 – A league of his own.

Jojo’s picks for best of night are James, Scotty, Stefano, Paul, Jacob, and Casey.

AAN‘s Best Performance of the night

Over 21 Years Old

Under 21 Years Old


We have nothing else to report except to thank our guest AAN Judges and to point out that tomorrow night will be the girls top 12 performances.  Also we really like Gabrielle’s 🙂 for when she liked the performance.  It sure brings a freshness look.
