American Idol - Top 8 Girls

Katie Stevens - Kelly Clarkson "Breakaway" Randy thought the song was too big for her.  Ellen liked the song choice but didn't think she felt the words.  Kara thought she has a great radio voice, but doesn't know who she is yet.  Simon also thought she hasn't worked out what kind of artist she wants to be.  I liked it....I didn't really have feelings about her when she made it to the top 24, but I still really like her now.

Siobhan Magnus - The Animals "House of the Rising Sun" Randy raved about her, and even likes that she doesn't listen to their advice.  Ellen said she is why she loves music.  She was captivated and loved how she made the song current.  Kara loved the a capella at the front.  Simon wasn't such a fan.  He thought it was a bit weird and she didn't have a moment like last week.  I liked it.  I always like her.  I wish my sister liked her as much as I do lol

Lacey Brown - Brandi Carlisle "The Story" Randy thought it was a bit boring, but thought it was her best performance in a long time.  Ellen thought it was really good.  Kara thought it was the kind of record she should be doing.  Simon didn't love the song, but thought she sang it really well.  I like the Earth-y tone to her voice.

Katelyn Epperly - Carole King "I Feel the Earth Move" Randy didn't feel like she connected to the song, but liked her whole look.  Ellen didn't like the song choice.  Kara didn't feel like she was competing, she felt like she was just going through the motions.  Simon thought it was simple and she didn't do anything special with it.  I thought it sounded good, but she looked really awkward.

Didi Benami - Fleetword Mac "Rhiannon" Randy thought it was better than last week.  Ellen loved how strong she came back this week.  Kara said it was one of her favorite moments of the show this season.  Simon agreed with Kara.  Oh, I am so happy.  I love Didi so much and she always picks the best songs!

Paige Myles - Charlie Chaplin "Smile" Randy said it didn't work and the song was too big for her.  Ellen thought it was sad and heavy instead of uplifting.  Kara said it was all wrong.  Simon thought it was a horrible song choice with an awful arrangement.  I didn't particularly like it.

Crystal Bowersox - Tracy Chapman "Give Me One Reason" Randy loved everything about it.  Ellen wanted new adjectives for how amazing she is.  Ellen thought it was the best performance of the night.  Kara liked how much she knows who she is.  Simon said she will definitely be in the Top 12 next week.  I really like her and liked the performance, but she wasn't my favorite of the night.

Lilly Scott - Patsy Cline "I Fall to Pieces" Randy loved the mandolin and thought the performance was hot.  Ellen loved her voice and originality.  Kara thought she made Patsy Cline feel current.  Simon thought she was brave for choosing that song, but didn't think it quite had the wow factor.  I thought she sounded good but thought it was a bit weird.

I'm ready for Paige Myles to go.  I have no connection to her.  I don't really want anyone else to go home, but Katelyn might...the judges haven't been loving her.

Katie ~ no a big fan of her performance last night.

Siobhan ~ Totally awesome job!! Love her

Lacey ~ Definitely wrong song choice

Katelyn ~ I really liked it but you are right she just didn't look comfy.

Didi ~ I like her but she just missed the "Wow" of the song.

Paige ~ She just doesn't have it.

Crystal ~ She is always on spot.

Lilly ~ She butchered that song to pieces.

I think Paige should go and I love Crystal and Siobhan they are the 2 best in my opinion.
