American Idol Top 8
April 14, 2011 by USA Post
American Idol Top 8, Following the shocking elimination last week Pia Toscano, “American Idol” Top Eight took the stage Wednesday night inside Hollywood channel to keep them safe from elimination of one week.
Participants were instructed to take on some iconic songs from the big screen, but not before a judge Jennifer Lopez was honored and deeply embarrassed by his fellow judges and host Ryan Seacrest as people with the name of the magazine “Most Beautiful Woman. ”
Again, most contestants performed properly and yet won much praise from the judges, who have not responded to criticism of the contestants is sufficient. Most surprising were the two contestants who refused to follow the advice of the master Jimmy Iovine, both to the detriment of their own actions.
Paul McDonald – “Old Time Rock and Roll” by Bob Seger
In his introduction, McDonald said he treated every performance as his encore – apparently a healthy attitude to have in a high-pressure competition. His song selection was made famous in the movie “Risky Business” in the famous scene of Tom Cruise dancing underwear and McDonald was so brave. Dressed in a red and green decorated (although some kind of horrible) demand, McDonald took full control of the stage. Although not impressive vocal, McDonald was clearly in his comfort zone, interact with the sax player of women in the middle. “I loved his madness, wildness,” said Steven Tyler.
Alaina Lauren – “The Climb” by Miley Cyrus
Iovine took a dig at Cyrus singing voice when he said Alain was stronger than the star of Disney. While the mentor said that this was an opportunity to grab fans Alain Toscano, Black Eyed Pea will.i.am said his performance had to be attractive. Her strapless dress with a bustier top zebra was a little aging, but Alaina’s voice shone. As the voice of Cyrus adds youth and immaturity of the song, Alain simply just take the song sound more uplifting. J. It praised the “attrition” or mourns the voice of Alain, adding that she gets plenty of votes with or without the rest of Tuscany.
Stefano Langone men, “End of the Road” by Boyz II
Unfortunately for Langone, his voice has the tone of R & B that makes “End of the Road” so pleasing to the ear. Eventually, however, was more of his voice and could tell he was longing for redemption after some escaped elimination last week. Randy Jackson called Langone best voice performance to date. “This is not the end of the road for you. It is only the beginning,” said Tyler.
McCreery Scotty – “I Cross My Heart” by George Strait
McCreery was never too far from the way the country and chose another country once again beaten by his childhood. Hoping to make the “king of the country” justice, McCreery delivered just the right emotion for the song. The song seemed a little artificial and fans of slow at times, but McCreery is unlikely to ever hate their actions. J. He said it was hard to be tough on the contestants, when all they are “so damn good.” “If it is not broke, do not even consider Fixin ‘” said Jackson. “A star is born at this stage.”
Casey Abrams – “Nature Boy” by Nat King Cole
Mentors Abrams suggested singing “In the Air Tonight” by Phil Collins, but Abrams decided to go ahead with their initial choice. Iovine Abrams looked disgusted and said better to be right in his decision. While Abrams drew his lower back, was much less successful than last year. In contrast, the number was uncomfortable to watch and Abrams could not perform the same type of character as exemplified by the “Moulin Rouge” version. For some reason, the judges added the number of jazz and gave him a standing ovation.
Reinhart Haley – “Call Me” by Blondie
Iovine, Reinhart said he had to become a character old enough Debbie Harry, but his voice really brought the performance down. Reinhart equipment consisted of a multi-colored short dress with boots; purple knee was not really appropriate for the stage of idol. “The judges finally gave him a long overdue critical and Jackson said that the principle was very” karaoke. “Agreed J. Lo with Jackson, but refused to criticize much because I did not want any girls to get the most votes.
Jacob Lusk – “the most water-girlfriend” by Simon & Garfunkel $
Iovine suggested the song Lusk, saying it was made to the contestant. Although a great song, Lusk has a voice of the Gospel that does not shine when he gets on stage. For some reason, Lusk actions are not resonating with the public (fell in the last three days), but have struck a chord with the judges. “What happens to me when I sing is you,” said Jackson.
James Durbin – “Heavy Metal” by Sammy Hagar
Durbin bumped heads with Iovine, who urged the contestants to choose a different song. Durbin urged the U.S. to give “a chance to metal”, and drove to the performance. By refusing to follow the advice of his mentor, the performance of Durbin ended up seeking a little self-indulgent and had nothing fresh or new and what is expected of him. The judges seem to have been listening to a completely different action – “It was very real,” he shouted J. Lo. “It’s crazy tonight! Who would have ever thought of ‘American Idol’, to be metal?”
