American Idol: Season 10, Episode 16 :: Top 13 Perform

Mar 09, 2011

The top 13 sang songs by their idols on American Idol (Season 10, Episode 16), which aired on March 9, 2011.

First up was Lauren Alaina. She sang Any Man of Mine by her idol, Shania Twain. It wasn’t the best song to make her stand out, especially since it’s a common karaoke song. The judges liked her performance, but they still expect so much more from her.

Next, Casey Abrams sang Joe Cocker’s A Little Help From My Friends. J-Lo felt like she was watching someone important. His performance was so spot on that he made Steven poetic: “You’re a rainbow of talent. A plethora of passion.”

Ashthon Jones, one of last week’s wildcard picks, sang Diana Ross’s When You Tell Me That You Love Me. Although it sounded very off key on TV, the judges seemed to like it. But J-Lo suggested that she pick songs that viewers can sing along to.

Paul McDonald sang Come Pick Me Up by Ryan Adams. Although he was a little pitchy this week, the judges still loved his character, rasp and movement across the stage.

Last week Pia Toscano was the show stopper. How could she possibly top herself? Well, she did it with Celine Dion’s All By Myself. Randy says she has the same natural gift as the greats: Celine Dion, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey.

James Durbin picked the perfect song to showcase his voice’s full range—Baby I’m Amazed by Paul McCartney. Randy said it right: “You slayed it.”

Haley Reinhart made Randy a little sleepy this week with her sexy rendition of Leann Rimes’s Blue. Steven and J-Lo, however, loved the unique, sultry quality to her voice.

Jacob Lusk sounded completely off key to viewers in his take on R. Kelly’s I Believe I Can Fly. But the judges couldn’t get enough of him. They found it hard to critique because he makes them “feel so much.”

Thia Megia performed Smile by Michael Jackson. The judges agreed that the beginning was better than the end. But J-Lo reminded viewers that she sings like an angel.

Stefano Langone was another performer who sounded off key. But the judges loved his upbeat remix of Lately by Stevie Wonder.

Karen Rodriguez sang If I Could Fall In Love by Selena. The judges admitted that she had trouble with a lot of the notes, but she’s usually so spot on.

Country lovers rejoice! Scotty McCreery knocked it out of the park with The River by Garth Brooks. If you’re not a country fan, this is the guy that will convert you.

Finally Naima Adedapo took the competition up a notch with her performance, singing Umbrella by Rihanna. J-Lo didn’t care about the pitchy parts because of overall performance. Not only did she dance, but she also busted out with some Reggae flavour. You go girl!

Elimination

On Thursday (March 10, 2011), one of the Top 13 was eliminated. The bottom three included Ashthon Jones, a wildcard pick, as well as Haley Reinhart and Karen Rodriguez, who were both part of America’s Top 10. After the judges decided not to use their one save of the season, Ashthon was sent home.

I thought it'd be cool for all the anime fans if there was a forum where we could find friends who like the anime we do :) Personally I really need some more friends who like what I do. Maybe you'll find someone who shares your love for something really obscure! Including manga too. To start off here are some favorites of mine: (just because one isn't here doesn't mean I might not like it too so everyone please share yours!) Black Butler D. Gray-Man No.6 Yu-Gi-Oh Seraph of the End Puella Magi Madoka Magica Horimiya Kekkai Sensen Free! Kyoukai no Kanata Tamako Market (especially its movie!!) My Little Monster Mekakucity Actors (and that whole music project that it's based on) Toradora! haven't finished reading/watching but like: (if you like it I'll make it a priority :)) Akagami no Shirayuki-hime Pandora Hearts Kyou Kara Maou Kuroko no Basket Noragami Kiznaiver  Bungou Stray Dogs The World Is Still Beautiful Ajin Haikyuu!! Aldnoah.Zero Princess Tutu That's all I could think of for now! What are yours? Note: No bashing other people's faves! Have debates/flame wars elsewhere. (Especially about Sword Art Online. Let's not even touch that)

Which channel do you think as of today is the best channel for kids today on cable. I would probably go with Disney XD. It's just as good as it was back in 2009 in my opinion and it has a great selection of shows. What do you think is the definitive channel for kids in 2016?
