American Idol Journal – Week 1 (Top 13)

Tonight had more singers that demonstrated they could handle the pressure and did well, than singers that, frankly speaking, choked in front of a huge world wide audience.

Standouts this evening were Casey Abrams, James Durbin, Scotty McCreery and Haley Reinhart (I haven’t been much of a Haley fan, but tonight she was wonderful).

Solid, though short of the top four, were Thia Megia (she’s not in the top only because of a lousy arrangement, I mean, what was she thinking!), Pia Toscano and Lauren Alaina.

Average performances were turned in by Stefano Langone and Jacob Lusk.

The singers that are looking at a limited run on American Idol are Paul McDonald, Ashthon Jones, Naima Adedapo and Karen Rodriguez

Since I’m not sure if one or two will be eliminated this week, I’ll just call one… bye bye Naima.

How do you see it?

Thanks for reading this far.
