[VIDEO] 2/13/13: AMERICAN IDOL RECAP; GIRLS HIT THE STAGE AND SHINE; CANDICE GLOVER, ISABELLE & BRIANA OAKLEY TOP LIST

13 Feb

AMERICAN IDOL finally showcased the ladies tonight.  Last week was a great one for the guys, but they may have some serious competition!  They promoted this as the best group of women in the history of Idol…and they might be right.

The one disappointing thing this week, was how they rushed through the ladies early on and did not really let us hear enough of them.  However, there were still a few stand-outs…the soulful Candice Glover, powerful Isabelle, 16-year-old Briana Oakley and country singers Rachel Hale & Janelle Arthur topped my list.  They obviously also were loved by the judges since they sailed through the first round.

But the group round seems to be the death of many great singers and tonight was no exception.  It is the nerves and lack of sleep along with strong personalities, which is a bad combination.  Many who sound amazing on their own, suck during this portion of the show.  Kez Ban may have been the biggest bomb early in the rounds, but somehow pulled through.  Although some are questioning if she should have performed during the guys round (not to be mean…but just the messenger).

The “Swagettes” were definitely the best group….good they sailed through to the solo round.  It was also a great effort by the country singing group. And they were just as fortunate to all make it to the next round.

It will be interesting to see who makes the cut.  This year the judges have some tough decisions to make.  It is actually a good thing…they can now focus on the contestants and not the Nicki & Mariah feud.

On another note; the girls definitely did not have each others back when one got saved. The true colors come out when the pressure is on!  At least Chicago”s Brandy Neely left with a good spirit and her head held high.  BUT…was it just me or did some of them need to go home?

    Never thought I’d say this, but the “boys” week so far has been far superior to the “girls” week, with only a couple of exceptions. Of course the girls were MUCH prettier.

      Tom, after you said this I have to agree. The men gave me chills and more of them rocked! Girls may be pretty….but the guys did outshine them!

    Thank you, Britta, for allowing me to vote. It was a perfect experience. Thanks, again, Cassie Hicks, a seasoned “American Idol” fan.

    Not sure how they decided to let Stephanie (Chicago) go home last night, I thought in her final (death match), that she did an incredible job of Phillip Phillps “Home.”
