This week on American Idol (Season 12, Week 9), Nicki Minaj arrives late, while the Top 10 tackle songs performed by past Idol winners. Read Kidzworld’s recap of “Top 10 Performances,” which aired on March 13th, 2013 to discover what you missed.

You'd think, given how much the American Idol judges are paid, that they would make a point of being on time. Now that the top 10 are performing on the live show, being late just doesn't cut it. But still, Nicki Minaj managed to arrive 13 minutes late to the show, missing Curtis's opening performance.

The Great

This season has the stiffest competition ever, making it hard to pinpoint an overall favorite. But it certainly looks as if a female will take the prize this year considering the excellent performances by Candice Glover, who received a standing ovation and was told by Nicki that no one should ever sing that song on Idol again because no one could sing it better; Kree Harrison, who chose a softer melody this time and earned a compliment from Keith: "I would buy your record tomorrow"; Angie Miller, who Nicki calls perfection in every way; and last but certainly not least Amber Holcomb, who proved she can sing the most difficult song with ease and hit every note flawlessly.

The Good

Paul Jolley surprised us again this week. (Last week, of course, he surprised us by making it into the Top 10 at all.) But he redeemed himself for his past pitchy performances with Lonestar's "Amazed." Devin Velez transformed a country song into the perfect melody for this tone, yet the judges had mixed feelings. Clearly his voice is the purest and best of all the guys this season, but Randy Jackson felt his performance was too safe. Hopefully, the judges' critiques won't hurt him. 

The Forgettable

Nobody was awful this week. But there were certainly some performances that drowned in this season's crazy talent pool. Burnell Taylor had mixed reviews. He sang well, but it didn't stand out from any of his past performances. Janelle Arthur chose the wrong song and has proved herself to be the weakest girl in the competition. Curtis Finch Jr., we're sad to say, didn't make his presence known this week. He started so strong in the competition that anything short of spectacular from him seems lame. And finally Lazaro Arbos; the worst of the night. Whether it was nerves or poor song choice ("Breakaway" by Kelly Clarkson), he really showed his weakness this week. If America votes correctly, he will be sent packing.
