AI Recap: 6 Plus 3 equals 9 and the final 3 is Wild . . .

Tonight's show was awesome! Lil was the first to enter the top 12, next was Scott and the last and final spot in Group 3 went to Jorge. But before Jorge sang his song, the judges start to announce their picks for the Wild Card show. And here they are:

Jasimine (Yay), Piano Playing Matt (Yay), Von Smith (I did like him), Megan Corkrey, Ricky Braddy (Yay, a North Carolina Native), Jesse Langseth (I liked her, but I was surprised she got in), Anoop (Whoo hoo, Annie's Tar Heel is in and I'm not so surprised with his selection), and finally, drumroll please....Tatiana del Toro. Dubbed the Drama Queen in the competition, I'm sure her pick was a surprise. I actually think she has a very good voice and I'm sort of glad that she got a second chance.

So we have contestants (Anoop & Ricky) from Annie's North Carolina, two contestants (Jorge & Tatiana) from Maria's Puerto Rico and two contestants (Alison & Adam) from LA.

I think the Wild Card Show will be Wild! And I can't wait for the top 12 competition to start.

And that's my Recap! Keep on Rocking AI . . . .


  1. Kathy, I was SO surprised when they said Tatiana's name last night!!! But when I think about it, she really does have one of the best voices of all the girls. Will be very interesting to see what she sings (and how she holds up emotionally) tonight!

    For the most part, I was happy with the Wild Card selections. But I would not have chosen Von Smith (I would have selected JuNot or Kai Kalami instead of Von). I was surprised about Jesse too.

    So happy about Anoop! There are already all these Anoop fan clubs and viewing parties going on here in NC. I read in the paper that Ricky Braddy is a NC native who lives in Nashville now, but he's getting some press here in NC too.

    So right now, the Top 9 out of 12 consists of 6 guys and 3 girls. I hope they don't use the Wild Card slots to even it out because I really think the guys are stronger this year.

    I just left Maria a comment telling her that there are two PR singers!

    So for the 3 wild card slots...I think Anoop and Megan will go through unless one of them really chokes tonight.

    But that third slot...I just don't know!

    Thanks for the recap and we'll know who the Top 12 are after tonight!

  2. Hi Annie, I'm sooooo excited for tonight's Wildcard I came straight home tonight. I think that's so cute that they are doing Anoop parties in NC. I agree with you, I think the best singer should get in and not just because they needed to balance the gender ticket. I think all the singers need to earn their spot.

    It's funny but I can't even remember Von Smith other than they compared him to Clay Aiken. It's too bad that Kai and Ju'not didn't make it. I think even Cris and the welder guy to me were on the fence I think. I also felt bad that Felicia didn't make it either and Ariana. Thanks for telling me that Ricky is now in Texas. I don't blame the press for picking up on his story too. Might help him with the votes! Tonight is going to be such a difficult chocie and it will come down to how they perform and what songs they selected. I can't wait. Only two hours to go...

    Thanks so much for your comments Annie, we'll recap tomorrow! :)

  3. Me again... I'm glad you mentioned Tatiana to Maria. Maybe she'll get a chance to watch it tonight. And if not maybe there will be a Youtube on her performance. Part of me actually wants her to be successful. But it's going to be tough with others like Jasmine and Megan also in Wild Card and not to mention Anoop, Ricky and Matt.

    I think I'm more excited about tonight then all the previous Group Nights! :)

  4. What a wild show! I am not going to say anything because I don't think you have seen it yet. But wow! They about gave me a heart attack!

    Maria said that she checked out Tatiana on YouTube and she also said that she was going to set her DVR for tonight. I told her...beware, it's addicting!

    I'll talk to you about the final results in the morning. Have a great evening!

  5. Hi Annie, ooooh I just knew it was going to be good! But from your statements maybe it is even better than I'm thinking it's going to be. I can't wait for 8:00 pm!

    That's very cool that Maria set her DVR. It'll be interesting to get her opinions.

    So do they tell the results tonight? Who picks them the judges? Oh wait don't tell me! Is it 8:00 yet!

    Thanks for the preview Annie, we'll definitely chat in the morning! Have a great evening!

  6. I'm not going to tell you anything except that I'm no longer bored like I was in the earlier rounds! It's VERY surprising! Can't wait to hear what you think. Have a great evening!

  7. Hi Annie, I bet it's a twist, isn't it! Oh wow, I can't wait! Okay, I'm trying to keep busy by doing my PhotoHunt! :) Ha, ha!

    Talk to you in the morning!
