American Idol Season 12: Songs Inspired by Past Idols

Tonight, the top 10 contestants perform songs that were inspired by past Idol winners.  The stage is set to start tonight's first live show, minus one judge courtesy of our LA traffic. :) 
And here's how I rated tonight's "Girl Power" performances:

Serious Idol Potential: Candice Glover sings I Who Have Nothing (Jordin Sparks).  Outstanding!
Very Waffle Worthy Good: Kree Harrison sings Crying (Carrie Underwood).  I loved it!
Good as Usual:  Amber Holcomb sings A Moment Like This (Kelly Clarkson); Burnell Taylor sings Flying Without Wings (Ruben Studdard).

Just Okay: Janelle Arthur sings Gone (Scotty McCreery); Devin Velez sings Temporary Home (Carrie Underwood); Angie Miller sings I surrender (Kelly Clarkson); Paul Jolley sings Amazed(Scotty McCreery); Lazaro Arbos sings Breakaway (performed by Kelly Clarkson); Curtis Finch Jr sings I Believe (Fantasia).
And here's how I voted on my American Idol App.
And that's my Recap. Keep on Rocking AI . . .



  1. Hi Kathy, I was able to stay awake for a whole show last night so I finally got to hear all the contestants. :) All I can say is that the girls are SO much stronger than the guys this year. This should be the year that a female wins again (though I like both Curtis and Burnell too). I agree with you about Candace - she was the "wow" last night.

    Funny that the judge was caught in traffic!

    Thanks for your recap and have a great weekend.

  2. Hi Annie, yes I'm really hope that a girl takes this Season. It's been a long drought for them. And I can empathize with Nikki. Traffic can make you late for anything, even a live show. :)

    It was a fun show and I don't want to see any of them leave. I think Lazaro could be in jeopardy but he does have a good fan following so who knows. They haven't mentioned the "Save" feature this year which I liked in case the fans make a mistake and vote out someone that shouldn't. And they will have a sing off for an 11th Idol to go on tour with the Top 10 this summer. I hope it is Nick.

    Thanks so much for your comments and recap too. Have a great weekend too!
