American Idol - Season 8 - Top 36 - Week 3 - Wild Card

So the 8 contestants the judges brought back sing tonight. Let's get to it already!

Jesse Langseth - “Tell Me Something Good” by Rufus and Chaka Khan - VIDEO

Weird performance. I like her voice but this was... yeah, weird.

Matt Giraud - “Who’s Loving You” by the Jackson 5 - VIDEO

AWESOME! I absolutely adore him singing the blues like that. It showed he was comfortable with that song. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

Megan Joy Corkrey - “Black Horse and the Cherry Tree” by KT Tunstall - VIDEO

Good song choice for her voice. Too bad she doesn't go in her higher voice a bit more, because it sounds good. That last note? OUCH! Simon has such a hardon for her... Blech.

Von Smith - “Sorry Seems to Be the Hardest Word” by Elton John - VIDEO

Seemed like his performance was cut short... The beginning was so shaky... The ending was getting better, but I think he overthought this one and it'll be costly.

Jasmine Murray - “Reflection” by Christine Aguilera - VIDEO

Boring and indulgent. Not liking this. She has moments her voice sounds beautiful, other moments it sounds thin and flat. Meh.

Ricky Braddy - “Superstition” by Stevie Wonder - VIDEO

The music is really loud and kinda drowning his voice at times, I think this was a good choice for him and he did it really well. He's putting everything into it, and hopefully it'll pay off for him.

Tatiana Del Toro - “Saving All My Love For You” by Whitney Houston - VIDEO

Lower range is not great, but damn she can belt with the best of them. Damn drama queen. I almost, ALMOST kinda wanna see her go through so she can argue with Simon and make him go crazy. *L*

Anoop Desai - “My Prerogative” by Bobby Brown - VIDEO

Alright, the beginning was rather sexy! He seemed so very confident tonight. I hope he can find other songs similar to this to really show off what he can do. I enjoyed this performance.

My predictions - Anoop, Matt, Megan

And now, our results!!!

Jasmine is up first - and she's IN!!!!
Ricky is next - but he's OUT.
Megan and Tatiana are up together - Megan is IN, Tatiana is OUT


Jesse at center stage, and she's OUT.
Von Smith is up, and he is told by Paula that he is OUT.
So of course, it's Matt and Anoop left for the end. Matt is IN!!!!! WOO HOO!!!! Everyone thought that meant Anoop was out... But no, he's IN! We have a Top 13!


Thanks to for the videos.
