American Idol Season 9: Shania Twain Returns to Mentor Idols

Although I was out of town last week, I did manage to watch American Idol and I really enjoyed watching Alicia Keys mentor the Idols. This week Shania Twain returns from her earlier guest judge appearance to mentor the idols. I like her as an artist and song writer and I think it is very cool that the Idols performed her songs tonight.

And here's how I saw tonight's performances:

Lee DeWyze opens up the evening by singing You're Still the One. This is one of my favorite Shania Twain's songs and I loved his interpretation. I thought he did great!

Michael Lynche sings It Only Hurts When I'm Breathing from Up. I'm not very familiar with this song, but listening to Michael sing it made me an instant fan. Very smooth...

Casey James sings Don't a very cool ballad. I have to agree with Kara that he is at his best when he connects with the song and when he allows his vocals to be the center of attention rather than his skillful guitar playing. I thought this was his second best performance in the competition. I loved it.

Crystal Bowersox sings No One Needs to Know. I'm a huge fan of Crystal, but this was not one of my favorite performance from her, especially given the other idol performances during the evening. But I still love Crystal and I think she deserves to stay in the competition.

Aaron Kelly sings You've Got a Way and I thought it was a much better performance than last week. He did good.

Siobhan Magnus sings Any Man of Mine and I really liked her performance. I thought Shanai gave her great advice.

My favorite performance of the night goes to Casey James and following closely beind him . . . Lee DeWyze, Michael Lynch and Crystal Bowersox. It wasn't Crystal's best performance but I thought she was still better than Aaron and Siobhan. But just to be safe, I'm throwing all my votes to Crystal (fingers crossed).

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


  1. Glad you voted for Chrystal since she did seem to have a below par night (which was still pretty good). Overall, this seems to be kind of a sleepy Idol season. No one is awful but no one is really blowing me away. Chrystal is definitely the best and I hope she wins.

  2. Thank you, thank you, mahalo! I needed this fix this morning.wish I had a tevo. I asked Ty to watch this for me, BUT the Mets won out over AI...Can't wait for tonight. Hope Siohban stays in...m

  3. Hi Annie, thanks so much for your comments. I'm a little worried for Crystal because her performance (and it was more her song choice than her vocals) was not her best and the others did so well. I hope she stays in and wins too. My top three would probably be Crystal, Lee and it is a toss up between Casey, Michael and Siohban for third. Like you said no real blown away stand outs like Adam was for me last year. Crystal would be the closest.

    Hi M, thanks so much for your comments. I can understand Mets beating AI out. :) I hope Siohban stays in too. I may cheat and read the results rather than watching it live on the west coast. I'm a little nervous for my favorite Crystal. It would be nice for Siohban stays in too. She did really well last night, even got her signature scream in at the end. Good for her.

    Have a great evening girls...

  4. You're Still the One is one of the very few pieces I can plunk out on the piano...love that song!

  5. Hi Anne, very cool that you can play You're Still the One! I'm sure you can sing it really well too. Thanks so much for your comments. Have a very Happy Mother's Day!
