American Idol: Season 11, Week 8 :: 13 Finalists Perform

Mar 08, 2012

This week on American Idol (Season 11, Week 8), the top 13 perform songs by the legendary Stevie Wonder and the late Whitney Houston. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “13 Finalists Compete,” which aired on March 7, 2012, to discover what you missed.

Stevie and Whitney

This week, the boys and girls competed, ending in a different results show. The boys performed songs by Stevie Wonder and the girls performed songs by Whitney Houston. Instead of the traditional bottom three, Ryan will announce the bottom three boys and the bottom three girls, narrowed it down to the bottom boy and bottom girl, and had the judges decide who goes home.

Girls Rocked It

Unlike last week, the girls stole the show. Jessica Sanchez knocked it out of the park with Whitney Houston's most famous song, I Will Always Love You. The judges admited that she had the best vocals of the night, and possible the best in the whole competition. Jessica is a clear front runner. Other notable girls included Hollie Cavanagh and Erika Van Pelt, who was one of the judges wild card picks.

The Top Boys

Not one of the guys gave an overly memorable performance, but Heejun Han received lots of love from J-Lo for his Stevie Wonder song, along with Joshua Ledet and Phillip Phillips (although all his songs seem to sound the same). 

The Worst of the Night

Shannon Magrane had the worst performance of the night when she sang I Have Nothing. Jennifer Lopez said that she knows Shannon is capable of singing that song, but her nerves clearly got the best of her.

Elimination

While Shannon did wind up in the bottom three, her popularity saved her from elimination. Elise Testone and Jeremy Rosado faced the judges elimination. In spite of J-Lo's love for Jeremy, she was forced to say goodbye to him.

“Instruction in world history in the so-called high schools is even today in a very sorry condition. Few teachers understand that the study of history can never be to learn historical dates and events by heart and recite them by rote; that what matters is not whether the child knows exactly when this battle or that was fought, when a general was born, or even when a monarch (usually a very insignificant one) came into the crown of his forefathers. No, by the living God, this is very unimportant. To 'learn' history means to seek and find the forces which are the causes leading to those effects which we subsequently perceive as historical events.”

'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.'What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending.It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.'V.P.S.?'Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.'But I like the inconveniences.'We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.'But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.'In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence.I claim them all,' said the Savage at last.Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”  I freaking LOVE Brave New World! It's one of the best books I've ever read, and that conversation between the Controller and John is my favorite part  [s:sm3/1jw1]
