American Idol: Season 15 - Top 10 Perform

Hello American Idol fans! Wow, Jenn goes home!  But, no fear we had Kelly Clarkson to see us through the 2 hour ordeal of losing her.  And it was just awesome to have her critiquing all night and then to give her potential send-off performance on the Idol Stage.  My top 10 performance recaps come to you in real-time again.  Our near 22 month old daughter was wide awake and screaming in our ears during the show, but I think we were able to hear everything pretty well!  Here goes nothing!

American Idol: Season 15 - Top 14 Wildcard Night

Hello American Idol fans!  We almost have our top 10!  4 were revealed by the judges tonight and we were given a look at the remaining 10 who have a shot at the other 6 spots.  I documented my thoughts in real time and highlighted my picks to get into the to 10 with some thoughts afterwards.  I'm all about the efficiency these days!  Let's dive in.

American Idol: Season 15 - Top 24 The Other 12

Hello American Idol fandom!  We continue this final season with another round of pre-recorded Top 24 performances.  Just like last week, I'll give my brief thoughts on these 12 and a best guess at who will go home Thursday after the duets.  Not sure if I mentioned it last week, but I actually really enjoyed seeing all the Idol alums come back for duet night.  Most of them, excluding maybe Scotty, really showed their growth over the years.  It's a nice touch to see many of the alums returning week to week.  Looking forward to next week when Kelly arrives as a guest judge and performer!!

With that said, let's dive in!

American Idol: Season 15 - Top 24 First 12

Hello Idol Nation!  We're back for one final season!  We had some commentary on the auditions and Hollywood week.  I had reservations of starting to recap this week since the show is still prerecorded and America isn't voting.  But you know me.  Eventually, I just get the bug and have to say something!  So I jotted down some brief thoughts on each contestant.  I won't be recapping duet night on Thursday because the judges will be making their cuts on the same night.  So, I'll give some early thoughts on who stands the best chance to be eliminated.

Then, Thursday night we can just sit back and enjoy the soothing sounds of these amateurs with Fantasia, Ruben Studdard, Nick Fradiani, Caleb Johnson, Lauren Alaina, Scotty McCreery.  Yep, I made the same groaning noise.  Maybe we're building up to the better Idol alum guests!  Better get Kelly out there before her 3rd trimester!!

Okay, enough of my rambling.  My brief take on the 1st 12 of the Top 24 are after the jump.
