American Idol 7 Recap - April 15, 2008

Tonight's American Idol 7 was Mariah Carey night and I was surprised to see that she was quasi-normal. Not the typical toy dog carrying, sunglass wearing diva she portrays herself to be. She did look like she got herself a brand new pair of puppies though.

And so the evening was filled with familiar songs and Simon Cowell was right: the men definitely blew the women out of the water tonight.

So let's get to it:

David Archuleta
Sang: Miracle

Even though this boy gives me the freakin' creeps, it's true that he did a stellar job opening up the show. But still, the lip licking and constant verge on tears behavior has got to stop.

Carly Smithson
Sang: Without You

Although it wasn't incredibly memorable, Carly did a decent job with the song, although the judges simply were not impressed with her performance. She looked awful tonight; like someone's mom who went to a club filled with young people.

Syesha Mercado
I thought Syesha did a fantastic job even though she's no where near Mariah Carey status. She gave it her all and sang the song well, but unfortunately, I think she has likely sung her last song.

Brooke White
Sang: Hero

You could tell that Brooke felt completely out of her element tonight and she proved it by rushing through the song and making herself look bad. The song suited her style, no doubt, but after she stumbled through the end of the song, voters will certainly take note and leave her at the bottom of the pile.

Kristy Lee Cook
Sang: Forever

Although I thought Kristy should've been voted off the show early on, she seems to be picking up the ball lately and doing a better job with her songs than usual. She picked the right song, sang it the right way and looked as gorgeous as always. Although I do think that the wardrobe person stuck the girls in some kind of '70s rut with those nasty ass outfits.

David Cook
Sang: Always Be My Baby

The best freakin' performance by a mile, David gave Mariah's song a hint of rock and roll and blew everyone away. Even Simon was singing his praises. Oh man, this guy is going to sign a record deal the moment this show ends.

Jason Castro
Sang: I Don't Wanna Cry

At first, Jason's voice was so low that I could barely hear him singing, but then he stepped it up a notch and sang his heart out. He reminded me a bit of Damien Rice tonight and I was happy he closed off the evening on such a good note.

My prediction for the bottom 3 tomorrow night are:

Syesha Mercado
Carly Smithson
Kristy Lee Cook

Come back tomorrow; I'll let you know what happens.
