Now that’s more like it! Can we just send all the guys home and let the girls battle it out in the Top 12? There were at least 5 performances last night that outdid anything the fellers did the night before. And Lakisha’s show stopping performance (well, I guess the show was scheduled to be over anyway, but still…) will be remembered as one of the great Idol performances of all time.
Rankings (in order of performance):
Stephanie Edwards – “How Come You Don’t Call Me” (A)
Amy Krebs – “I Can’t Make You Love Me” (C+)
Leslie Hunt – “You Make Me Feel Like A Natural Woman” (C)
Sabrina Sloan – “I Never Loved A Man The Way I Loved You” (A-)
Antonella Barba – “I Don’t Want Miss A Thing” (D-)
Jordin Sparks – “Give Me One Reason” (A-)
Nicole Tranquillo – “Stay” (B-)
Haley Scarnato – “It’s All Coming Back To Me Now” (B)
Melinda Doolittle – “Since You’ve Been Gone” (A)
Alaina Alexander – “Brass in Pocket” (D+)
Gina Glocksen – “All By Myself” (B+)
Lakisha Jones – “And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going” (A+)
Who should go home? Another easy call. It should be Antonella and Alaina. But I could see anyone going except Lakisha and maybe Melinda. The reason is that Lakisha so dominated the night that the remaining votes will be almost solely based on fandom. Many of these girls were so completely ignored before this that people don’t really know them. My gut says Alaina will go but Antonalla will be saved because she’s gotten some screen time. Plus, the judges were so brutal with her that she will get that “in trouble” bounce in the voting. So I’ll say Alaina and Amy are headed out and just hope that Jordan, Stephanie, Sabrina, and even Gina got enough to survive. If not, you’ll hear me rant harder than ever that the voting process would be much better if we voted people off instead of on.
