On March 19th episode of ‘American Idol, Top 10 performed for audience votes, contestants singing top 10 hits from the past few years — including ‘Story Of My Life!’, some singers got their points of view to fore. Others felt flat, really flat. We are not sure who will eliminated from the contest, but we can tell that Alex Preston, who sang a killer rendition song of One Direction‘s “Story Of My Life,” will definitely be staying.
Jennifer Lopez one of the judge of the American Idol perform her new single “I Luh Ya Papi” and she looked gorgeous while doing it, obviously. She was not just an American Idol judge but a total superstar. JLo performed along with former Idol contestants Jessica Sanchez, Allison Iraheta, and Pia Toscano.
Performances of Top 10 Contestants
MK Nobilette, “Perfect” by Pink: Grade: D+
MK step out of her comfort zone and move around the stage a little more, but we’re not so sure that her voice was strong enough for this; she seemed to be relying heavily on the backup singers. Keith Urban complimented her on her look and voice, but Jennifer Lopez disagreed, though, and told to MK that she needs to do a better job at rolling with the punches when stuff like that happens.
Dexter Roberts, “Cruise,” by Florida Georgia Line,Grade: C-
Dexter chose a country song, Dexter was good consistent as ever and as ever not really our jam. Harry Connick Jr. did not think it was a good performance at all and “bereft of joy” and “meandering.” Problem was that stripped of the steady, rhythmic movement she take risk to date by slowing down the tempo for the opening half of Florida Georgia Line’s propulsive party ja.
Jena Irene: Zedd featuring Foxes’ “Clarity” — Grade: B+
Jena is the best. She sang amazing, owned the stage, interacted with the audience and was just generally the all-star that she is. Harry was gives best compliments to her we seen him all season, and Keith brought up what has been a theme with Jena this season — that she changed the melody to suit her voice and that she did it incredibly well.
Alex Preston: One Direction’s “Story of My Life” — Grade: A-
Alex, marry us. He sang a slightly sped-up version of the mega-hit, making it his own. Jennifer looks like she’s literally going to start crying. This was killer, even better than Jena’s performance. The judges loved it, unanimously.
Malaya Watson: Bruno Mars’ “When I Was Your Man” — Grade: B+
Malaya has sung a Bruno Mars song. The first time around when she sang “Runaway Baby” this song is not well to the judges and to her. Keith told her that the control in her voice is improving.
Caleb Johnson: Lady Gaga’s “The Edge of Glory” — Grade: B-
Harry gave Caleb an “A grade” for his originality — this wasn’t Caleb’s best performance, but it was still fantastic, Caleb wound up attaching a big old clunky hay wagon to the back of his Maserati. Musically speaking, of course.
C.J. Harris: Hunter Hayes’ “Invisible” — Grade: D+
CJ was fine, but it wasn’t the most memorable. Jennifer was into it but Harry was stone-faced. The judges hemmed and hawed over his performance. This guy’s performance was like watching complete with a giddy “Whoopsie!” Bottom line: This guy might just not be ready for primetime.
Jessica Meuse: Foster the People’s “Pumped Up Kicks” — Grade: B
Jessica was so twangy on this, we could not understand what she was saying, and we actually know this song. She sounded like a Bob Dylan impression done by a member of a high school sketch improve group and her smiling while singing the lyrics was super weird.
Majesty Rose: Avicii’s “Wake Me Up” — Grade: B
This performance seemed a bit weak to us compared to some of her greatest hits and now we’re worried that it may be time for her to go home.
Sam Woolf: fun. Featuring Janelle Monae’s “We Are Young” — Grade: B/B-
Sam definitely showed improvement off last week’s woeful “Come Together,” He kicked it up once he went into the chorus, but with back-up singers and a loud band, and he would not sound more impressive. He’s being too timid and he needs to come out of his shell. Judging was cut short for time.
