IDOL VIRGIN | Top 10 girls

In Idol Virgin on March 4, 2010 at 10:47 am

Proposed new Idol rule: no songs that have been used in Glee.

Here are my thoughts on the top ten girls:

  • Crystal Bowersox did a classy job, bringing the house down with barely a mention of her medical issues. It was a little weird, though, how many times Simon name-checked her throughout the night.
  • Haeley Vaughn was all over the place in ways that were both awful and sad. I supposed mistake number one was picking a Miley Cyrus song.
  • Lacey Brown improved dramatically over last week, though it was quite stiff until she began to move around. Her rendition of Kiss Me is evidence of my mounting suspicion that some songs aren’t meant to be covered.
  • Katie Stevens put her own stamp on her song without dramatically altering it. Not outstanding, but has potential.
  • Didi Benami got better in the middle, but sucked at the beginning and end of her song. In other Didi news, these interview packages keep giving me new reasons to hate the contestants (see also: Jermaine Sellers).
  • Michelle Delamor unremarkably muddled to the end of her song, despite a nice arrangement.
  • Lilly Scott stood out in last night’s mediocre field. I usually hate “A Change is Gonna Come,” but I got into hers. She’s weird, but that might not be a bad thing.
  • Katelyn Epperly was captivating and understated. She was the total package, and I was scandalized at how rough the judges were on her.
  • Paige Miles owned “Walk Away” even when she was pitchy or didn’t hit the notes. She took control, and I like her.
  • Siobhan Magnus has an intangible quality and continues to be ambitious about her song choices. Your dark horse has arrived.

I’m getting more invested in some of the contestants, so ask me how I feel after tonight’s quadruple elimination.
