Cute start to American Idol. Ellen claims Simon wants her and she had the tape of his roaming hands to prove it. Lol Paige Miles sang Alright Now. I believe she’ll make the top 12. Simon - wrong song choice, but he feels she is the best female singer Kara disagreed but she thought she could do more with the chorus Randy - wrong song, but great big voice Ellen – disagrees with all of them, but she thought she pulled it off. Ashley Rodriguez sang Happy very, very nervously. Simon – it was clumsy and didn’t like the arrangement Kara – Credit for taking on a big song, but there were bad moments Randy – Did a good job, but will be compared to Leona Lewis Ellen – Too predictable Janell Wheeler sang What About Love. Not bad, not great Simon – gave it 100% effort, but only delivered 65% Kara – likes her but the song was way too big for her Randy – not his favorite song choice Ellen – liked the song choice and sang it very well Lilly Scott sang Fixin’ a Hole and she sucked! Simon – the best we heard so far. Huh? Kara – says she’s believable? Randy – loved the honesty Ellen –thought it was excellent Katelyn Epperly sang Oh Darlin’ and she scrunches her face Simon – somewhat screamed the song, but he likes her Kara – knows her voice very well Randy – she pays attention to the tone; likes her whole vibe Ellen – interesting and attention grabbing; amazing voice Haeley Vaughn sang I Wanna Hold Your Hand very well! Simon - verging on terrible like a wind up doll that never stopped smiling Kara – technical issues with the song, but she’s fun Randy – loves her unpredictability but needs to work on her high notes Ellen – says she shines Lacey Brown sang Landslide horribly! Simon – quite depressing and indulgent Kara – wrong song and it felt forced Randy – amazing song but not the right one for her; terrible and pitchy Ellen – thinks she’s better than that Michelle Delamor sang Fallin' and I think she's great! Simon - did very well, but no "wow" Kara - very commercial looking; moments not great, not believable Randy -did a pretty good job for such a big song; take risks Ellen -it was fantastic, but she can do better Didi Benam sang With The Way I am and I love her voice! Simon - good singer but not standing out; dreary song and no spark Kara - good song, creative, but pitchy Randy -where's the star factor? Good voice, no star Ellen -first night song was a bad choice, but she sounds and looks great Siobhan Magnus sang Wicked Game. I can hear Simon: boring. She's good. Simon -funny little thing; very dark song Kara -wouldn't have picked the song, but she liked it Randy -great voice; reach for bigger things Ellen -loved it Crystal Bowersox sang Hand in My Pocket and I like it; hate the song though Simon -likes her but 1,000's are just like her outside subway stations Kara -she was good but can be great Randy -didn't like the song, but loved her Ellen -she would vote for her Katie Stevens sang Feelin' Good she has a great voice, but I hate that song Simon -agrees with Ellen; mom and dad must have chosen the song; annoying Kara -pitchy and that's not like her; she has ridiculous chops Randy -pushing so hard the notes were too sharp Ellen -too conservative; wants her to be 17 Who is going home? Who's your favorite(s)? Have we seen our next American Idol?
