AI7: The Year They Were Born

Posted by Kevin on March 26, 2008

This week the Top 10 performed songs from the year they were born.

Loved: Brooke, David Cook
Liked: Michael, Syesha, Jason
Bleh: Chikezie, David Archuleta, Carly
Go Home: Ramiele, Kristy

David Cook and Brooke have separated themselves from the pack. I can see either of them winning this competition, although I think Brooke fits the mold of the show better. Either way, both of them look to have bright post-Idol futures ahead of them. Both of them put on amazing performances last night with Brooke putting a very nice touch on Sting’s Every Breath You Take, and David putting a stupidly brave twist on Michael Jackson’s Billy Jean and rocked it out.

I thought I was going to like Carly doing Total Eclipse of the Heart, but the song just didn’t fit her and I felt the backup singers made the song work more than she did. I love that song but was disappointed in the performance.

Kristy saved herself another week by picking an immensely patriotic song and actually singing it well. I thought it was beyond cheesy for the show and Simon called it perhaps the most clever song choice he’s seen. But I don’t think Kristy understood what he meant. I took him to mean that by picking such a well known and beloved song, she almost can’t be sent home tonight because it would look bad sending someone home singing God Bless The USA.

Ramiele is out of her league in the Top 10. She’s been fighting laryngitis which is partly responsible for her garbage performance last night, but even with a healthy voice she just doesn’t belong in this group.

Bottom 3 predictions: Ramiele, Kristy, Chikezie. Chikezie gets squeezed out with Kristy hiding behind patriotism and Ramiele getting a mulligan for being sick.
