American Idol: The Top 12 Women

Tuesday, February 21, 2006

American Idol comes at us this week finally with the real competition. Now the fate of this year's competitors are now in your hands America. Tonight, it was the ladies turn to show us what they've got! Were you impressed? Who did you vote for tonight? Let me tell you what I think about tonight's performances. In my mind, we had some highlights, some lowlights, and some new faces.

Tonight started off with some real heart and soul. Mandisa has been one of my favorites since the beginning, and she certainly put on a show tonight. She made the others to follow her stand up and take notice I'm sure. I was truly impressed with her performance, as were the judges. Next up, we had Kellie Pickler, and she also did well. She needs some work, but she is definitely one to watch.

Third up was Becky O'Donahue. She can sing, and she definitely have the looks down, but I don't think her voice is strong enough to keep her through to the end. I may be wrong. She's made it this far already, so she can sing. Following Becky, we had seventeen year old, Ayla Brown. She came in and amazed everyone. She has a wonderful voice, and I truly think she'll go far in this competition. Fifth up was Paris Bennett. Now, this girl can sing like a professional. She has stage presence, and she has talent. She will be there as the competition goes on.

Now, the middle of tonight's line-up had it rough. These three women came in and I just didn't feel tried their best. Perhaps it was song choice because three definitely had the talent to make it this far. However, Stevie Scott, Brenna Gethers and Heather Cox definitely didn't perform to Idol status this week.

Our final four of the night brought us two new faces and two familiar ones. Let's talk about the familiar ones, Lisa Tucker and Katharine McPhee. I wouldn't be shocked in the least if one of these two ladies is our next American Idol. They have what it takes to make it. Katharine definitely brought the show to an amazing close. We also had two new faces never before seen on television this season, Melissa McGhee and Kinnik Sky. Both performed well, but they both had their problems during their performances. Will we see them again? Not sure. We will have to wait and see.
