Weekly Recap: Top 24 perform and 4 get eliminated
The performances this week ranged among the mediocre although the talent is immense. Several performers stood out however, proving that Idol can still bring us amazing performers. The one on the girls side that performed the best was Crystal Bowersox who sang Hand In My Pocket from Alanis Morrisette. And from the guys it was Lee Dewyze who sang Snow Patrol's Chasing Cars. Besides them there were several who caught our ears. Todrick Hall did great rendition of Since You've Been Gone. Didi Benami was quite good in her performance of The Way I Am. Tyler Grady was also amazing in his 70's way during his performance of American Woman. Besides them the performances were dull and lackluster. However the results show proved to be far more uninteresting.
Allison Iraheta performed Scars and Kris Allen performed an outstanding Let It Be for Haiti relief. While Ryan Seacrest told America that Idol Gives Back will indeed return this year the voters were busy voting off Tyler Grady, Ashley Rodriguez, Joe Nunoz, and Janell Wheeler. Although they certainly were not the best performers they did fair much better than most of the others. I'm hoping that next week's performances improve and treat us to two nights of incredible talent and more reasonable send homes. But then again we won't ever know what to expect until the votes are counted.
