American Idol: The Top 12 Sing

Tonight's question was: Who would be more crazy -- Diana Ross or Paula? Diana Ross' opening segment almost made me forget this was the same woman that flapped at Lil Kim's boob. While I think it was cool that Lady Di sat in with the kids, the Motown vibe has been beaten to death. Here's a look at who added to the abuse...

Brandon Rogers

"These precious words, keep me hanging on." That's some lyrical irony right there. Brandon forgot the words to "You Can't Hurry Love." The audience booed the judges, but they really should have booed Brandon. Hanging on? Barely. It wasn't even as good as the Phil Collins version, which means it really wasn't good in "American Idol" land. He's very lucky that Sanjaya and Haley are still in this competition. He blamed the big stage. Didn't he used to be a background singer?

Loved the exchange between Simon and Ryan before Melinda's performance. Are those guys going to get a house together or what? I'd rather watch that show than weeks of loser auditions.

Melinda Doolittle

This probably wasn't my favorite song selection of the night. It's not even my favorite song from "The Wiz." But wow wee -- this chick is this generation's Gladys Knight (I thought of that before Simon, by the way). Her sweet, humble persona isn't going to hurt her chances to be the next "Idol" either. It was after Melinda's performance that my question had been answered: Paula is the bigger mess. Did anyone catch Simon laughing at Paula's weepy reaction -- before it was a topic of conversation? God bless the person that invented widescreen TVs.

Chris Sligh

Chris got his gay on with "Endless Love." He also got rid of his glasses, which apparently hold all of his singing superpowers. It was like Taylor dying his hair and telling everyone there's no Tooth Fairy. He should have saved face and said he left them in the men's room. The arrangement was horrible. It sounded like the guy who sings the theme from "The Love Boat." I was waiting for Charro to come out from behind the background singers.

Gina Glocksen

Gina said she was going to take Diana Ross' advice. Thankfully, it wasn't grammar advice. "Pronunciate?" I think she meant "enunciate." I guess Gina didn't understand either, since she didn't enunciate anything in her performance. She was alright though. A little screamy, but she doesn't have to worry about leaving tomorrow.

Sanjaya Malakar

"Sanjaya is love??" Diana just re-entered the crazy competition. Although Sanjaya blew both ladies out of the water with tonight's hair-don't. There is no way Randy liked that girlie mop. Simon could barely look at him, and neither could I. I was also expecting the obvious bizarre Michael Jackson comparisons to come out. Tonight of all nights! I guess everyone was too blinded by his horrible performance.

Haley Scarnato

How can "Missing You" be fun? Apparently Haley finds Marvin Gaye's death to be fun. Forgetting lyrics is also fun. Frankly, I didn't even notice. I was too busy cringing. Simon is right though; she will be remembered -- for consistently losing her composure on stage. Jeez honey, get a grip. No one wants to pay to see you cry for 90 minutes (although some might).

Phil Stacey

Phil must need to go shopping because he didn't have a crazy hat tonight. He did, however, change the pace by bringing up happy Marvin Gaye memories. After a few less-than-stellar performances, I think Phil looked like a pro. Not sure if that is a good review or not. I just wish we could see another side of Phil besides the sappy one.

LaKisha Jones
LaKisha Jones
Do I really need to review LaKisha at this point? Love Billie Holiday, so it was great to see her do "God Bless the Child" such justice. It sounded very old school, but didn't drag or bore usl. See people -- that's the way to perform a slow song! I am just wondering if LaKisha will sell albums. It's not that she doesn't deserve to, but she isn't the Nelly Furtado type, and has a classic sound, which makes me wonder if she's destined to top the charts. Let's see how she does on Gwen Stefani night first.

Blake Lewis
Blake Lewis
Love to see Blake working on his computer to put together his performance. That's actually what I like about this kid. He brings all kinds of new stuff to the game. Randy said he should let the classics be classics. Of course, the one time Blake did that, Randy was expecting Blake to get all "Beat Street" and breakdance or something. It wasn't his best vocal, but I think Blake is damned if he does, damned if he doesn't.

Stephanie Edwards
Stephanie Edwards
Wasn't thrilled with Stephanie's outfit. It looked like she was wearing a bathrobe. She sounded great, but like everyone else, I was waiting to put on my roller skates and boogie to Diana Ross' disco era. I also wanted to see Stephanie get jiggy with her great voice. She delivered on the sexy part; she just didn't really sing the song.

Chris Richardson
Chris Richardson
Chris was "The Boss." He had the best male vocal of the night. However, he has the world's worst dance ability. He needs to get beyond the white-boy dance moves. Paula might not be the best singer, but she is/was a choreographer -- can't she help him with that?

Jordin Sparks
Jordin Sparks
I was hoping that Jordin was going to rock out like she did last week. Instead, she chose to end the show on a slow note. She was beautiful and she can sing, but it sort of reminded me of Snow White singing. I thought birds were going to land on her shoulder or something. If she doesn't win, Disney should snap her up for some voiceover work.

If I get my way, Sanjaya will be leaving tomorrow. However, after last week, it's really anyone's game. -- Rachel Cericola

Unfortunately, Sanjaya is the VFTW pick, so unless Brandon's and Haley's fans never put the phone down, I think that Sanjaya's staying.

Yeah I did see that. Their last picks went home, but I think because they had 2, the votes got split. Oh no... say it ain't so!

Simon said Chris had the worst vocal...and i agree. You're pretty off base with that judgment. Sanjaya needs to go!!!!!!!!!
