American Idol second 12

Alright y'all, so tonight was the second group of 12 contestants to sing. I have to admit, last week's group whooped their behinds but oh well, here we go...

Jasmine Murray — Love Song. She is a super nice and pretty girl, cute outfit too! Started out a little low in the beginning and overall it was just ok for me. No 000-ing here.

Matt Giraud — Viva la Vida. I really like this guy and I thought he did pretty good tonite. Not like crazy over the moon good but ok good. He almost reminded me a little of Justin Timberlake coming at us all hip hop and stuff.

Jeanine Vailes — This Love. Ok, I love Mauroon 5 but who sounds great singing that kind of song except them?? This was just not good, kinda weird for me.

Nick Mitchell — You're Gonna Love Me. First, why is he still here? And no, sorry buddy I'm not gonna love you. Ever. Sorry.

Allison Iraheta — Alone. Ooooh, love this girl!! 16 years old, wow!! This was a fantastic performance, loved the rocker deal which really fits here. VOTED.

Kris Allen — Man in the Mirror. What a sweet and sincere guy! I liked this performance tonite. Yeah, maybe not his niche but I thought it was really good...love the spin he put on it and the nod to M.J. VOTED.

Megan Joy Corkrey — Put Your Records On. Really want to like this girl, great personality and smile. Single mom and I give her big props for even going for this. Perfect song for her, great sound. But what up with the awkward dance moves and big girl tattoo/little girl dress??

Matt Breitzke — If You Could Only See. Family man like Daughtry and I had high hopes for him but he seemed uncomfortable up there tonite. This was just so-so for me.

Jesse Langseth — Betty Davis Eyes. Much better performance than I've seen from this chick for sure! But just not wow, kinda boring despite the nice vocals.

Kai Kalama — What Becomes of the Broken Hearted. Hmm. Just too easy and old of a song to do for him. The comfort level was there tonite but he really needs a hair cut, I'm just sayin'.

Mishavonna Henson — Drops of Jupiter. CUTE outfit, really nice tone for her tonite. Haven't seen much of her so far but I really like her! This was a nice performance and the judges were a bit harsh I thought.

Adam Lambert — Satisfaction. The jury is still out in my mind on this guy. I can't tell if I like him or am just creeped out by him. I gotta get over the weird high voice I think. It was a pretty good performance tonite...though a tad cheesy in the beginning, he worked it out in the end. I don't know. I just don't know.

My top 4 favs were Allison and Mishavonna, Kris and Adam. But due to the fact that only ONE guy and ONE girl plus the next top contestant gets through I was limited to just voting for two. I wasn't crazy about any of them except for Allison. So we'll see tomorrow! What did y'all think??

Came over from BooMama's blog. I agree, they were all a little boring last night. And WHY did Nick/Norman ever get through??

I couldn't wait to visit you and see what you thought of the performances last night. I thought the 16 year old girl was fantastic! Allison was my number one pick. I actually liked Megan's voice. I think she's different and memorable. I could do without those tatoos but... what can I say? Why do they do that to themselves? Anyway, I wanted to like Kai because of his sensitivity and how kind he is to his mother but I wasn't a big fan last night. Gosh, I sound like Randy Jackson! And I think Adam is kind of wierd but I like him. He's a bit dramatic but if he makes it, which I think he will, they'll probably work on that.
