American Idol 7 Recap - March 25, 2008

Tonight's theme on American Idol 7 was: Pick a song from the year you were born.

And many of the singers got it right. Some, however, should be going home.

Ramiele Malubay
Sang: Alone by Heart
If you've ever heard Carrie Underwood sing this song, you'd know that nobody else should go near it. Ramiele, however, is naive and unknowing. She tried her best and even hit some good notes, but at the end of the day, Ramiele will likely be going home.

Jason Castro
Sang: Fragile by Sting
You gotta hand it to this guy. Week after week, he picks songs that are perfect for his voice. And is it just me or is he looking more and more like Travolta?!?

Syesha Mercado
Sang: If I Was Your Woman by Gladys Knight and the Pips
She was fantastic and hopefully she doesn't get kicked off tomorrow because she's got soul, yo.

Chikezie Ezie
Sang: If Only For One Night by Luther Vandross
Chikezie definitely sings as well as most RnB singers today, but he's no D'Angelo, if you know what I mean. But then, D'Angelo is all fat and bloated now. But I digress. Although he sings well, he's so damn forgettable. If it weren't for his name, I'd know nothing about him.

Brooke White
Sang: Every Breath You Take by The Police
he sat at the piano, took off her shoes and choked right off the top. Then she got hold of her shaky self and managed to belt out a pretty good performance although the judges, the ones whose opinions actually matter, thought otherwise.

Michael Johns
Sang: We Are The Champions by Queen
Boy did this guy ever rock it out. Straight from the heart, he sang his pretty little ass off. And I must say, he was freakin' adorable growing up and got hotter and hotter as the years passed. Give me some of the Aussieness...

Carly Smithson
Sang: Total Eclipse of the Heart by Bonnie Tyler
This is the biggest cliche song of our generation but Carly did a pretty good rendition although the judges, again, the ones with penises, thought she was a trainwreck. This girl can hit any note and hold out without inhaling for a long period of time, you gotta give her that. I'm sure the boys would like that little factoid.

David Archuleta
Sand: You're The Voice by John Farnham
One of the most overrated singers in Idol history, David Archuleta sang a song that no one has ever heard of and yet the girls are all falling all over themselves to get a piece of that tiny little action. I mean, this guy reminds me of a freakin' eunuch. Could a man/boy be any more asexual?!? Oh and Simon was hilarious when he said he felt like it was a theme park performance and he expected animals to come out of the forest to join in with him.

Kristy Lee Cook
Sang: God Bless the USA by Lee Greenwood
Wow, this girl is so smart that she masked her inability to sing by singing a song that no one, especially Simon Cowell, could criticize. Imagine a Brit telling an all-American girl who just finished singing "I'm proud to be an American" that she sucked and the song sucked. We're talking full on riots.

David Cook
Sang: Billie Jean by Michael Jackson
If you didn't get to see David perform this version of "Billie Jean," that was ripped off from Chris Cornell of Soundgarden (Beetlejuice, I mean Ryan Seacrest mentioned it but you likely couldn't hear over all the screaming), it was fan-freakin'-tastic, amazing even. This was one of the best performances I have likely ever seen on Idol.

My prediction: The bottom 3 will be Ramiele Malubay, Kristy Lee Cook and Syesha Mercado.
