American Idol: Season 12, Week 6 :: 10 Girls and Guys Perform

Feb 21, 2013

This week on American Idol (Season 12, Week 6), half of the top 20 guys and girls compete for a spot on the live show. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “10 Girls Perform,” and "10 Guys Perform" which aired on February 20th, 2013 to discover what you missed.

More Changes To Idol

In the attempt to keep things fresh after 11 seasons, American Idol is making even more changes. Usually a live audience isn't brought into play before the judges have picked the top 20. This year, however, the top 40 are performing at the Mirage in Las Vegas in front of a live audience. Last night, half of the remaining girls performed, after which the judges narrowed the group down from 10 to 5. Tonight, the same thing with happen with 10 of the guys.

The Good

There was an obvious division in this group with about half the girls being superstars and the other half being...let's call them excellent karaoke singers. This set up allowed for very few surprises. The girls who outdid themselves included Kree, who has an effortless quality to her performances; Angela, who stunned the judges in Hollywood with her amazing original song; and Amber, who had a makeover after being eliminated in Vegas last season.

The Bad

A couple of the girls really bombed, and it makes you wonder how they even managed to get this far in the competition, especially with how many talented female singers there were this season. Country singer Jenny Beth was just okay; Brandy failed to deliver an emotional connection that was consistent with the song lyrics; Shubha's rendition of "Born This Way" was all over the place; and Kamaria - by far the worst - sang in the wrong pitch for the entire song. These 4 stood no chance. 

The Surprise

The only real surprise this episode was the elimination of Isabelle, who gave a stunning vocal performance that was better than two of the girls who were kept - Tenna and Adriana. But perhaps it sounds different live than it does at home.

These are the girls who made it into the top 20:

  • Kree Harrison
  • Angela Miller
  • Tenna Torres
  • Adriana Latonia
  • Amber Holcomb

The judges made some questionable decisions in terms of the boys cuts, saying goodbye to two-time Idol contestant Johnny Keyser whose performance was beautiful. But the judges could keep only five:

  • Paul Jolley
  • Devin Velez
  • Curtis Finch, Jr.
  • Elijah Liu
  • Charlie Askew
