Tonight the Top 11 contestants once again performed because of the “save” last week for Casey.  The theme tonight was Elton John songs.  The contestants were assisted be several music producers on the arrangement of each song.  (Cutting a song down from the usual three minutes to one minute and forty seconds takes some special treatment so as not to lose the “content”.)

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. (Two contestants will be going home tomorrow)

Tonight AAN invited Jojo to be a judge.  Jenna and Gabrielle also judged a few contestants..

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

1] Scotty McCreery – Song: “Country Comfort”
With a country twinge Scotty once again made the song his own and we enjoyed every minute.
Jojo — Never disappoints

2] Niama Adedapo – Song: “I’m still standing”
Niama put a reggae touch on the song to make it her own and we think this was Niama’s best performance this season.  The stage presence and vocals we spot on.  She sure is an original.  Bravo!
Jojo – Great personality – Good job.

3] Paul McDonald – Song: “Rocket Man”
A tough song to sing and Paul did a pretty good job with it.  A safe pick for Paul and just a so-so performance.  To quote the judges, “It needed more.”
Jojo – Inaudible – Probably his worst performance.

4] Pia Toscano – Song: “Don’t let the sun go down on me”
Week after week Pia is our top pick and this week another “wow”.  The vocals and audience connection were right up there.
Jojo – Perfect!
Gabrielle — 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

5] Stefano Langone – Song: “Tiny Dancer”
Very good vocals and the audience connection was way better than last week.
Jojo – First time hes has chosen the right song for his voice. – Fair performance.
Gabrielle – 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Jenna – 8.5

6] Lauren Alaina – Song: “Candle in the wind”
Very good song choice she managed to keep a twinge of country in the song.  She did a great job with the vocals and we think it was her best performance this season.
Jojo – Best from Lauren
Gabrielle — 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Jenna – 9.5

7] James Durbin – Song: “Saturday night is alright”
Once again James took the vocals to a new level and the performance was awesome.  When we watched tonight it was like we were at a rock concert and James was rocking out.  Bravo!
Jojo – Hot Stuff
Gabrielle — 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
Jenna – 10

8] Thia Megia – “Daniel”
Pretty good vocals with a safe song choice.  Her best performance in a long time.
Jojo – Better than usual – See were it goes.
Gabrielle — 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

9] Casey Abrams – Song: “You’re Song”
A much calmer Casey tonight and we enjoyed every note.  Casey showed a different side with a ballad and the song choice, arrangement, and vocals were excellent.  Bravo!
Jojo – A top singer / performer

10] Jacob Lusk – Song: “Sorry seems to be the hardest word”
Another great vocal with a beautiful performance and the last note was out there in another world.  Bravo!
Jojo – Purest voice of all the males

11] Haley Reinhart – “Benny and the Jets”
Haley started a little shaky maybe because she was sitting on top of a piano to start.  As she progressed in to the song it became much better and ended very good.
Jojo – Didn’t do it for me.

Best Male Performance Tonight
