It's an American Idol sudden death round!
The girls get one song, one chance to prove their worthy. Half will be leaving. This could get interesting!
Ooo, we're at the Mirage. Spiffy!
Keith - mixed feelings. Not the best song for you, but love your confidence.
Nicki - I liked your voice, but you didn't come alive until the end.
Randy - it felt all a little jerky. You didn't get in sync rythmically with the band.
Mariah - very nice performance. You can be more dynamic in the verses.
Keith - beautiful. You mostly had control.
Nicki - you're scaring me. You have control over the song.
Randy - this is the start of the night. Really? Ugh. Jenny was better.
Mariah - this was all you. You gave every bit of your emotion.
Keith - now the night has started! Agree, Keith!!!
Nicki - "little tiny thing but commands the stage the minute she walks out" is what Nicki wrote when Adriana first came out.
Randy - this girl is born to do it. This girl is a pro.
Mariah - I was really proud of you. Really nice. A+.
Keith - Your voice is really good, but my only issue is an emotional connection inconsistancy. Yes.
Nicki - stay out of my head, Keith. She agrees with Keith.
Randy - I have to echo the guys. It didn't tell me enough of who you are and what kind of artist you want to be.
Mariah - I just saw a beautiful person who sang a song. You look like you're presenting yourself tonight. WTH?
Keith - it was confusing cause there were so many things going on, but I love your voice.
Nicki - so much going on... something was very confusing.
Randy - unbelievable talent, but way too many runs. The potential in you is amazing. I'm impressed.
Mariah - agrees with Randy.
Keith - I don't know if that was a great song for you. No emotional connection.
Nicki - Love your outfit. Didn't recognize your throaty thing. It didn't work.
Randy - you were in a different pitch. All over the place. Definitely your worst performance.
Mariah - you're very adorable. Not the right song choice. Can you critique please?
Keith - stood up! You are such a natural born singer!
Nicki - the other girls should be afraid. You make love to the song. Something about you is so sexy when you sing.
Randy - here is another natural born singer.
Mariah - you're lost in the song and that's a beautiful thing to watch.
Keith - you have a huge talent. You have a beautiful voice.
Nicki - comparing her to her original performance. Don't force anything.
Randy - you're definitely one of my favorites in the whole competition.
Mariah - your potential is limitless. Talking about her original song again.
Keith - for all the guys who didn't ask you out,
Nicki - she's looking like a diva tonight! I'm proud of you!
Randy - you got a big voice and a lot of talent, but it was old fashioned.
Mariah - your vocal could have been over any song. Your heart is what's selling you.
Keith - that's such great technically and making it look so easy.. you made it timeless. You knocked it out of the park, baby!
Nicki - you come out of your shell. That vocal was A+++, but I'm wondering if that shine is going to shine out in TV.
Randy - you have to believe it if anyone else is going to believe it. Your vocal was amazing.
Mariah - you have to know how brilliant that performance was. Loved her interpretation of that song.
American Idol Results!
Jenny is out of the competition.
Brandy is out as well.
Teena is staying in the competition.
Kree is staying in the competition.
Isabelle is out.
Angela is staying in the competition.
Kamaria is out of the competition.
Amber is staying in the competition.
Schuba is out of the competition.
Adriana is staying in the competition.
Teena was nasally and off-key. She's in because she went to Mariah's camp. I would have liked to see either Isabelle or Schuba stay.
And here we thought the American Idol voting is rigged, when in fact it's the judges controlling the path.
