And here's how the night went:
M.K. Nobilette - Perfect by Pink
Dexter Roberts - Cruise by Florida Georgia Line
Jena Irene Asciutto - Clarity by Zedd/Foxes
Alex Preston - Story of My Life by One Direction
Malaya Watson - When I Was Your Man by Bruno Mars
Caleb Johnson - The Edge of Glory by Lady Gaga
C.J. Harris - Invisible by Hunter Hayes
Jessica Meuse - Pumped Up Kicks by Foster The People
Majesty Rose York - Wake Me Up by Avici
Sam Woolf - We Are Young by Fun/Janelle Monáe
I think Dexter and Caleb have been singing well and consistently throughout the competition and I couldn't quite figure out why I just wasn't liking them as much as the other contestants. It wasn't until I watched Alex Preston perform tonight that I finally figured out why. Singing well and consistently just doesn't scream American Idol winner to me. Alex is unique, creative, talented and has his own signature sound. He is not just a singer and performer, he is an artist. I feel the same way about Jena and Majesty. I think M.K., Malaya and Jessica are also talented but on a level just below them.
My top performances of the night: Alex Preston, Jena and Majesty (I'm not sure why Keith Urban didn't like her arrangement, dude!).
I think C.J. Harris and M.K. might be in danger of being in the bottom three this week. Based on tonight's performance I think C.J. had the weakest performance of the night.
Now that most of my favorites are in the top 10, I'll be voting only for my top three pics of the night. And here's how I voted:
