American Idol: Meet The Top 13

Well, after thousands of auditions, the top 13 were announced tonight. Technically, it was only the top  10, but because the judges seem to have a problem with letting people go lately, they've made it the top 13. The guys performed Tuesday night and I was not impressed. There was no one that really stood out to me or that I really remembered after the show was over, so I didn't vote. Last night, the girls took the stage, and I was actually really impressed with them. There were a lot of incredible performers, even if I wasn't necessarily a fan. There were a couple weaker links...but what everyone has to realize is what pressure they're under. It's not everyday that you're singing on THE top reality show around, betting your life on one song. Nerves are bound to strike, whether you want them to or not. They were all super talented, but of course, only few can make it through. I definitely voted for a few of my favorites and crossed my fingers they'd make it through to the top spots. 

This was for Chelsea ;)

The Top 13:
  • Phillip Phillips
  • Jessica Sanchez
  • Hollie Cavanaugh
  • Joshua Ledet
  • Heejun Han
  • Shannon Magrane
  • Skylar Laine
  • Elise Testone
  • Colton Dixo
  • Jermaine Jones
  • Jeremy Rosado
  • Erika VanPelt
  • Deandre Brackensick 
Where to begin? I'm really sad that Baylie Brown didn't make it through! I really loved her! She deserved another chance. I'm EXTREMELY upset that Heejun made it through. I'm sorry if you like him, but c'mon. It's not even just a matter of not liking the way he sings, he comes across really rude to me, and I don't like that. As for everyone else, I think they all belong there. I'm looking forward to seeing how everyone progresses as the weeks go by!

My favorites are:
  • Erika VanPelt
  • Elise Testone
  • Jessica Sanchez
  • Hollie Cavanaugh
I'll be pulling for them all the way! Here's to a good season of American Idol...I hope it gets better! :)

That's all for now,
