'American Idol': Did the Top 12 Girls just wildly outperform the Top 13 Guys?

Update: Annie’s recap is live.

Yo, yo, yo, yo, yo. I thought tonight’s Top 12 Girls performance show was wayyyyyy better than Tuesday’s Top 12 Guys night. I’m surprised by how much I loved the energy of country-rocker Skylar Laine (pictured). Hollie Cavanagh is relentlessly endearing without even trying and effortlessly killed it by just standing at the mic on Christina Aguilera’s “Reflection.” Two of the ladies – Jen Hirsh and Elise Testone – dared you to let them be your “One and Only” by taking on the same Adele song. I suspect growly powerhouse Elise may have just knocked Jen out – even though Jen has been a favorite for awhile.

My quick Top 5: Elise Testone, Hollie Cavanagh, Skylar Laine, Jessica Sanchez, and Erika Van Pelt – with Hallie Day as the Wild Card. Who were your faves?

Did anyone else think Jennifer Lopez channeled Angelina Jolie tonight?

Angelina J. Lolie? Is that you?

Also, here’s my five-word review of Elise Testone and her hair:


Which five girls do you think will (or more importantly, SHOULD) make it through tomorrow night?

Discuss the telecast here and stay tuned for my full recap overnight.
