American Idol Las Vegas 2013 Recap: Season 12 Group 1 Results
The Top 40 on American Idol Season 12 have made their way to Vegas for the American Idol Las Vegas 2013 and tonight we get to see ten of those ladies compete to make it into the Top 20 on American Idol 2013! We start the night with ten girls, but will end the night with only five as the American Idol judges 2013 will cut five girls tonight! No waiting around for American Idol Las Vegas 2013 results: five stay and five go home. Find out who stays and who was eliminated on American Idol Season 12 during my American Idol Las Vegas 2013 Recap tonight!
Is it just me or has this season of American Idol seem like it has been going on forever? They seem to want to drag out the announcement of the Top 10 as long as possible, so let’s add in two weeks for the Vegas Rounds (oh, and call them Vegas Rounds and not Vegas Week)!
We do finally get to see some of the true talent on American Idol Season 12, but only after weeks of watching the drama with the judges. Maybe they can remain calm for the American Idol Las Vegas 2013 rounds? Ten girls tonight and ten boys tomorrow. Repeat that for next week and by the Thursday of next week we will have a Top 20, which then compete for the Top 10….ugh. The judges just can’t decide and be done with it already? The Top 40 will perform in front of a live audience in Vegas for the first time, so that is kind of cool!
WARNING: AMERICAN IDOL 2013 SPOILERS AHEAD!
After talking with the judges, we finally get to meet the ten girls performing tonight! Up first is Jenny Beth Willis and she comes out in some weird dress and super skinny, but it was a decent performance. The judges felt nerves from her and not the best performance from her. What did you think?
Tenna Torres: She sings “Soulmate” by Natasha Beddingfield and nails it. I loved the song and I have never even heard it before. It had a lot of emotion in it and she has a very good voice. The judges loved her and I feel she will be moving on!
Ardiana Latonio: She sings “Ain’t No Way” by Aretha Franklin and talk about another great performance. It was a huge song to take on and her voice is so clear and she has great tone. I like this girl and I think we may have another one moving on, right? Mariah was singing along with her.
Brandy Hotard: She sings “Anymore” by Travis Tritt. I think she is a very pretty girl and has a good country voice, but can we have that many country singers in the Top 20 Girls? She does a good job with the song, but it was just consistent. She hits a good note at the end, but it never went anywhere besides that. The judges felt she did not connect to the song and Nicki Minaj felt it was a pageant performance.
Shubha Vedula: She sings “Born This Way” by Lady Gaga and she starts out behind the piano and then puts her own spin on the song. She had sass and spunk and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was her own thing and she was so comfortable on that stage for being only 17 years old. The judges were torn over her, with Keith and Nicki not impressed and Mariah and Randy liking her potential.
Kamaria Ousley: She has sung backup for Diddy and now wants to step into her own spotlight. She sings “Mr. Know It All” by Kelly Clarkson and I am not impressed. That song is all Kelly and her sass and this performance just lacked that for me. The American Idol judges 2013: not impressed.
Kree Harrison: She sings “Up to the Mountain.” Why has she not been shown more on American Idol Season 12? This girl can sing and has such control of her voice. It was a flawless performance and she is Top 10 material, no doubt about it. Nicki said she sings and makes love to the song.
Angela Miller: She sings “Nobody’s Perfect” by Jessie J. It starts a little slow for me, but she kicked it in for sure. We all know she has an amazing voice and I think she just needed time to get there on this song. She does need to eat a sandwich though! Randy said she is the real deal and she is going places.
Isabella: She sings “God Bless The Child.” She has an amazing voice and she is a beautiful lady. The judges were torn because Nicki and Keith loved it, but Randy thought it was a little old-fashioned and Mariah agreed with that. What did you think?
Amber Holcomb: She sings “My Funny Valentine.” If we are talking old-fashioned, what can you say about this performance than? She has a great voice and hits some big notes, but it is old-school and Randy should be hating on that! The judges loved it and apparently she made it timeless, who knows?
The judges discussed and here are the American Idol 2013 results for Round 1:
- In: Tenna Torres, Kree Harrison, Angela Miller, Amber Holcomb and Adriana Latonio
- Out: Jenny Beth Willis, Brandy Hotard, Isabelle (shocked by that one), Kamaria Ousley and Shubha Vedula
So, there are the first five ladies making it through to the Top 20 on American Idol Season 12. What do you think?
