It was Motown Week on American Idol 2013 and the Top 8 on American Idol Season 12 did a better job with a theme I thought was going to be terrible for the show, but in these American Idol 2013 spoilers I give you who I thought performed the past this past week on American Idol 2013 Season 12!

American Idol 2013 Top 8 - Janelle Arthur

Here are my picks for the best performances from the Top 8 on American Idol 2013, based only on the solo performances and not the duets and trios performed:


Amber Holcomb – “Lately” by Stevie Wonder

Amber found herself in the bottom three last week, to the surprise of many people. but she totally redeemed herself with this performance for Motown Week. Mariah Carey said she was the tour de force, which no one in the place seemed to understand. To me, she knocked it out of the park and proved why the Top 5 for Season 12 should be all the ladies!

Janelle Arthur – “You Keep Me Hangin’ On” by The Supremes

I usually give all my love to Kree Harrison and Candice Glover, who both did an amazing job also this past week, but I have to give props to Janelle as well. She sat down, played guitar and sang a rendition of this song that was so good. She’s been doing well and I think this solidified her spot in the Top 5!
