My American Idol Score Card - Top 12

Disclaimer: In no way do the ratings here indicate who will get the boot. Nor do they indicate who my favorites are. I'm *attempting* at an unbiased judging. Let's just be clear though: I love Elliot lots, I root for Katharine, I heart Ace *kissy-kissy*, I think Taylor is a pro, I think Chris is a rockstar, I believe Mandisa is too big for this competition (no pun intended), I used to like Kellie ... and I don't care so much for the rest.

Rating Legends:

PERFORMANCE
- includes stage presence, camera flirtation, projection, audience impact, movements or choreography, dramatic impact

VOCALS
- exactly what it is: VOICE
- "If I close my eyes and listen, do they still sound as good?"

STYLE
- includes the physical appeal, personaly style, looks, how they carry themselves, how they carry their clothes (if it is right for their age/performance/personality)

  • ACE
    Performance - 7
    Vocals - 6.5
    *bad singing, it was sort of contrived and forced.
    Style - 8

    Total - 7.16

    **********

  • KELLIE
    Performance - 6
    Vocals - 7
    Style - 7

    Total - 6.66
    *I'd have to agree with Simon, this made her "old"

    **********

  • ELLIOT
    Performance - 6
    *You can actually see Elliot thinking while singing. Lighten up, kid!
    Vocals - 8.5
    Style - 6

    Total - 6.83

    **********

  • MANDISA
    Performance - 7
    Vocals - 7
    Style - 7

    Total - 7
    *Her low notes were a problem. For someone with her "power", this was an average performance.

    **********

  • BUCKY
    Performance - 7
    Vocals - 8
    Style 6.5
    *I prefered the rugged looking Bucky. Clean Bucky, made-up Bucky was a different image. It was not Bucky.

    Total - 7.16

    **********

  • MELISSA
    Performance - 5
    *Would you like to listen to someone messing up the lyrics to a classic favorite?
    Vocals - 7.5
    Style - 8

    Total - 6.83

    **********

  • LISA
    Performance - 6
    Vocals - 6.5
    Style - 8

    Total - 6.83
    *From the beginning I've always wondered if she can do up-tempo song. I don't have to wonder why she sticks to ballads now.

    **********


  • KEVIN
    Performance - 6
    Vocals - 6
    Style - 5

    Total - 5.6
    *It was just so wrong having him here. John Stevens 2.0, this one. The sad thing is, John Stevens was almost persecuted (Okay, that's an exaggeration...but some things were said against him). Can Kevin take what should happen to him in case he stays in the competition?

    **********


  • KATHARINE
    Performance- 8
    Vocals - 7.5
    *Her high notes didn't sound good on TV.
    Style - 8.5

    Total - 8

    **********


  • TAYLOR
    Performance - 9
    Vocals - 8
    Style - 8

    Total 8.33
    *Totally enjoyed this number.

    **********

  • PARIS
    Performance - 8
    Vocals - 8
    Style - 8

    Total - 8
    *I don't have to state the obvious --- she'll stay awhile longer.

    **********

  • CHRIS
    Performance - 9
    Vocals - 7.5
    Style - 7
    *He dressed very plainly, there should have been more "daworks".

    Total - 7.83

    **********

    RUNDOWN OF TOTALS


    Taylor - 8.33
    Katharine - 8
    Paris - 8
    Chris - 7.83
    Bucky - 7.16
    Ace - 7.16
    Mandisa - 7
    Elliot - 6.83
    Melissa - 6.83
    Lisa - 6.83
    Kellie - 6.66
    Kevin - 5.6

    * Interesting to note that Ace wins over Mandisa by a very small margin. Ace's looks and over-all presence could earn him more points than Mandisa's powerful voice.

    Actual results of bottom three:

    Ace
    Lisa
    Melissa - Voted Off
