American Idol – Top 6 Week


After years of hearing Simon complain about performances better suited for Broadway than American Idol finally there’s a reason for contestants to give a theatrical performance – Andrew Lloyd Webber was the celebrity mentor this week. Big voices and showmanship won the night and those who have a harder time going outside their niche were exposed. Here’s our breakdown*** of the top six performances.

    The Top Three

  1. Syesha Mercado
  2. David Cook
  3. Carly Smithson
  4. The Bottom Three

  5. David Archuleta
  6. Jason Castro
  7. Brooke White
*** Feel free to rate your top performances, argue our choices, or generally discuss the show below.

Syesha and rocker David shined, little David bored, and Carly mounted a comeback. Jason and Brooke never quite connected and Brooke even stopped and restarted several lines into her piece. This week we’re predicting it’s time for nanny Brooke to go.

Here’s our running tally of where the Idols stand for the entire season. The ratings are weighted toward the most recent performances (using the “what have you done for me lately” principle) but reflect the entire season of song choices and connection with the voting public.

  1. David Cook
  2. David Archuleta
  3. Carly Smithson
  4. Syesha Mercado
  5. Jason Castro
  6. Brooke White

No embarrassing Idol picture of the week. Sorry…
