Tonight the Top 11 will performed and the viewing audience will be able to vote for their favorite.  Tomorrow night will be the results show from tonight’s votes and the contestant with the least number of votes will be going home.

The judges and mentors tonight were L.A. Reid, Nicole Scherzinger, Paula Abdul and Simon Cowell.

Here are the Top 11 Contestants in order of performance:

1] Stacy Francis          Song “Queen of the Night”
We thought this was a questionable song choice because it did not show off her vocals.  Also Stacy did not look comfortable dancing and it seemed like something was missing.

2] Marcus Canty          Song “I’m Going Down”
No dancing for Marcus this week, just a jacket that would not co-operate with being removed.  His vocals were outstanding and his stage presence was right on.

3] Drew                       Song “Fix You”
Drew surprises us every week and this week was no exception.  A bit of a slow start tonight but her unique vocals pulled it off and we were entertained.  Judge Paula made a comment about Drew’s dress and said she should not let Simon pick her wardrobe for her performances and Simon then told Paula that Drew designed the dress for tonight.  “Hey Paula, have you taken your foot out of your mouth yet?”

4] LeRoy Bell               Song “I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For
This was a very good song choice and great vocals by LeRoy.  This was an “ageless” performance and Leroy made it his own.

5] Lakoda Rayne         Song “Somebody Like You”
It was good to see they dumped the gaudy prom dresses from last week and did a song with a little country flavor.  This performance was a thousand times better than last week and we enjoyed it.

6] Astro                        Song “Lose Yourself” (Modified)
Like we said last week we are not “Rapp” listeners but we must say we do like watching Astro perform.  This young man is very special and captures the attention of the audience every week.

7] Melanie Amaro        Song “Man in the Mirror”
This was a brilliant song choice and we agree with Nicole when she said, “You made Michael proud.”  We absolutely were left wanting more.  Bravo!

8] Stereo Hogzz          Song “Ain’t No Other Man”
A terrible song choice and we did not see anything special about this group in this performance.  Our guess they may be going home tomorrow night.

9] Josh Krajcik                        Song “With a Little Help From My Friends”
Once again this was another perfect song choice accompanied by perfect vocals.  We felt like we were at a Josh Krajcik concert wanting more.

10] Chris Rene             Song “Gangster’s Paradise” (Modified)
Chris added some of his own lyric’s and made the song his own.  His vocals were sounding good again and we were happy to see him get back to his original style.

11] Rachel Crow           Song “I’d Rather Go Blind”
Rachel took a risk with this song choice and absolutely “nailed” the performance.  We think this was her best performance this season.  Bravo !!

AAN’s Choice for Best Performance Tonight

We have nothing else to report except that we really enjoyed the show tonight and we hope you voted for your favorite.
