First up was Naima Adedapo (born in 1984), singing What’s Love Got To Do With It by Tina Turner. J-Lo noticed a pattern in her performances—she’s consistently pitchy. This week especially. Could this be the end of the road for Naima?

Next was Paul McDonald (1984), singing I Guess That’s Why They Call It The Blues by Elton John. His few pitchy moments were outweighed by his ability to make the song his own, said Randy. Steven called him a “cool dude with a loose mood.” Huh?

The youngest contestant, Thia Megia (1995), hit the stage with some Disney music—Colors of the Wind by Vanessa Williams (from Pocahontas). Randy didn’t like how she’s been singing ballads every week. He said her performance was nothing special.

James Durbin (1989) sang I’ll Be There For You by Bon Jovi. The judges loved his performance. He made J-Lo sing along—a sure sign of success!

Haley Reinhart (1990) sang I’m Your Baby Tonight by Whitney Houston. Aside from her forced movements and the embarrassing red lipstick disaster, the judges liked her performance. Of course, Randy always finds a negative about Haley, saying that she doesn’t know who she is as a singer yet.

Next Stefano Langone (1989) performed If You Don’t Know Me By Now by Simply Red. Randy called it the best performance of the night!

Pia Toscano (1988) took the stage singing Where Do Broken Hearts Go by Whitney Houston. Steven claimed that she is the reason why the show is called American Idol. And Randy said she’s “in it to win it!”

Country cutie Scotty McCreery (1993) pushed the envelope with a more challenging country song, Can I Trust You With My Heart by Travis Trip. The judges loved his growth, and Randy said that he would have made the artist proud.

Karen Rodriguez (1989) sang Love Will Lead You Back by Taylor Dayne. Her performance started rough, but it was certainly better than last week.

Casey Abrams (1991) made American Idol history by performing the first Nirvana song on the show—Smells Like Teen Spirit. The judges had a few negatives about his “screamy and screechy” parts, but overall they loved him.

Lauren Alaina (1994) sang I’m The Only One by Melissa Etheridge, while battling a cold. But the flu worked in her favour, because the judges loved her performance.

Finally, Jacob Lusk (1987) knocked it out of the park with Alone by Heart. Steven, with his always funny comments, said “Gospel had a baby, and they named it Jacob Lusk.”

On Thursday night, Karen Rodriguez received the fewest votes. After singing for her life, the judges were not unanimous in their decision to send Karen home. The save is still up for grabs.
