WKEF-TV ABC 22 News :: News - Good Morning - Idol Chatter: Rush Week

Idol Chatter: Rush Week

It's Rush week on American Idol--and that means lots of cuts.  Last night the Top 15 girls were prepared to sing live for America's votes--but the judges cut 5 right from the start.

The night was a bit rough for the girls--nerves and some bad song choices left the judges looking a little disappointed.

A few that stood out....

Majesty Rose started off the night on a strong note.  The pre-school teacher was the first contestant put through to sing live, and she didn't seem to let the pressure get to her.  Upbeat song with nice vocals...she makes you smile when she sings.

Jena Irene - a judges favorite from the start of the auditions.  She sang Rolling Stones "Painted Black"--bringing a bit of rock edge to the competition.  Big sultry voice--and stands out from the other females in the competition. 

MK Nobilette- With so many of the contestants over-singing and practically screaming lyrics...MK's performance of Jon Legend's "All of Me" was a refreshing change of pace...simple and subtle- but still powerful. 

Malaya Watson was the final girl to make the Top 10 -and after sitting the entire night waiting to see if her name was called--she gave a super-high energy performance.  Sang Ray Charles' "Hard Times"--huge voice...but the performance was a little over the top.  No doubt she is a very talented singer--the judges are looking forward to seeing her settle in as the competition continues.

At the end of the night, it was announced that America voted to give Ben Briley (the country singer) the 15th spot for the guys.  He beat out Neko Star.

Tonight the Top 15 guys will be ready to sing--but the judges will cut 5 right from the start.Idol Chatter: Rush Week
