We are told that the ladies did so awesome last night that hopefully the guys have brought the A game. First up Elijah - He has a nice tone to his voice, but was way too nasally...and no...nasally is NOT a form of singing. All of the judges call him "Current and Marketable". Next up...Cortez Shaw - He is just so damn adorable. He also has great stage presence, although I thought the song was not a great choice. Charisma came out, but vocal was a little off. Charlie Askew - He shouldn't be here. That is all that really needs to be said. If his tears put him through on a sympathy vote then this show has really sunk to a new low. Wow...his mental illness is REALLY coming out tonight. Idol needs to cut this guy before he goes completely postal on someone. I am seriously scared of him at this point. Nick - Singing a death song about "Not wanting to go home right now". Do these people Never learn? He's a fine piano bar employee, but he is nowhere near ready for Idol top 10. The song really went nowhere tonight. Burnell - Dropped 40 lbs. since his audition...and he definitely changed his look/image. He actually has a great voice. One of the few guys in the competition who deserves to be here. I can't wait to hear more from him in the future. This song was not great and didn't do much for him, but he's through. Paul Jolley - Robbed a spot in the top 10 from a couple people who deserved it more. I'm still not feeling him. But he was better tonight. Not one of the worst tonight. Lazaro - Its hard to hear anyone do this song since Adam Lambert completely slayed it in season 9. But Lazaro did a good job with it. He will definitely go through to the next round based on a number of factors, one....including his voice. Curtis Finch - He's got a great voice....but every performance of his is exactly the same...it is a gospel worship leader version of whatever song he is singing. We've seen the same thing week after week after week after week...but hey...it worked for Phil Phillips...it could work for Curtis Finch. Great performance, but is it really American Idol? That's all I have to say. Deven Velez - First off, the guy needs a major makeover. He absolutely is 1000% better when he starts singing in Spanish. He needs to be a Spanish language performer because that is where his heart and passion really come through. For me...until he sang in Spanish it was way too old fashion and boring. Vincent Powell - Much better for me than his past performances. Tonight I actually understood him and kinda get what he is about. Not sure what the judges heard tonight...it was the first time that I actually enjoyed him Ranking the guys: Burnell Deven Curtis Vincent Lazaro Elijah Paul Cortez Nick Charlie I think America will vote similarly: Definitely In - Burnell, Deven and Curtis Probably in - Vincent and Lazaro Cusp: Elijan and Curtis Probably out - Cortez (:-( and Paul Definitely out: Nick and Charlie....unless America is sway by Charlie's tears.
