American Idol Season 13: Top 13 Idols Hit the Stage

Tonight, the top 13 Idols perform live for our votes. But I have a dilemma.  Survivor also starts tonight which is my other must see TV reality show.

I tried to flip between channels, but missed a couple of performances because I was busy watching Brawns, Beauty and Brains compete for immunity on Survivor. Thankfully, I found a website where I could watch replays of all the performances so I could write my traditional recap.  :)

First, here's the song list for tonight's performances:

Dexter Roberts - Aw Naw by Chris Young
Malaya Watson - Runaway Baby by Bruno Mars
Kristen O'Connor - Beautiful Disaster by Kelly Clarkson
Ben Briley - Folsom Prison Blues by Johnny Cash
CJ Harris - Radio by Darius Rucker
M.K. Nobilette - Satisfaction by Allen Stone
Majesty Rose - Tightrope by Janelle Monae
Jena Irene - The Scientist by Coldplay
Alex Preston - A Beautiful Mess by Jason Mraz
Jessica Meuse - The Crow and the Butterfly by Shinedown
Emily Piriz - Glitter in the Air by Pink
Sam Wolf - Unwell by Matchbosx 20
Caleb Johnson - Pressure and Time by Rival Sons

As each contestant made their way to the stage we learned 5 random things about them and heard Randy Jackson give his take on what each contestant needed to do in order to have a great performance.  

My favorite performance was hands down Majesty Rose with Sam Wolf a close second.  I also liked MK's performance. I thought it was smart of her to show America that she can sing more than just ballads.  I also enjoyed the performances of Alex Ponder and Jessica Meuse.   

Based upon tonight's performances I think the weakest performances came from Kristin, Malaya and Dexter.  I really like Malaya, so I'm hoping she gets to stay. 

Here's how I voted:

Good luck to all the Idols.

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


  1. Thanks for the recap, Kathy. I missed last night's show and am so glad to hear that Majesty did so well! She's my fave so far though I don't think I've heard all the guys perform yet (I missed some of last week's guy show).

    I'm going to try to watch results tonight and catch up! Glad you were able to figure out how to watch AI and Survivor both.


    Hi again, I thought you'd enjoy seeing this local article about Majesty!

  3. Hi Annie, thanks so much for the link. I enjoyed reading the article. I think she has such a positive vibe and she is so talented. I just love her.

    I wanted to find the taped show for survivor to watch later but couldn't find it anywhere but found Idol, so I watched Survivor then watched the taped performances for my recap. :)

    As usually I get so nervous for the results I cheated and found out that Majesty made it through. Yay! I'm not surprised to see Kristen in the bottom three with Malaya but was very surprised to see MK. I guess voters didn't like her more upbeat performance. I enjoyed it and didn't think it deserved bottom three in the results. :( Hopefully she'll bounce back next week. Now I can relax and watch the show. Looking forward to watching Candice Glover perform.

    Thanks so much for your comments. Have a great weekend.
