Girls Night Out: American Idol Final 12

The ladies took the stage for the 2008 season of American Idol tonight, and they are absolutely incredible. Once again FOX saved some of the best acts for last. My only 4 star rating for the evening went to Syesha Mercado who did a huge, amazing rendition of Tobacco Road. Goose bump city. The camera loves her and she's very much at home on the stage. Asia'h Epperson was a close second with a powerful version of Joplin's "Piece of My Heart".

My number three pick at this early stage of the competition is Ramiele Malubay. She has an enormous voice for a tiny lady, and she absolutely owned her performance tonight. I knew Simon was going to love her. It's high time a Filipina-American made it all the way, they are some of the finest vocalists in the world.

I am in complete agreement with Simon on the last singer of the night. I don't get it. Not impressed at all with Carly Smithson. And if it is true that she already has a professional contract in Ireland, she should be disqualified.

Long shot and most interesting voice of the evening--definitely Amanda Overmeyer the dark haired rocker. Most original, funniest and she also gets the "Juno" award for best teen personality.

Finally, I'm still rooting for Kristy from Oregon. She got the jitters tonight and it ruined her heavenly voice, but I think she can still pull it out of the fire if she makes it through this week. And by the way, she sold her horse to get to the competition, can't we start a fund so she can buy it back!

Stay tuned Flaming Nose-ites, this is just the beginning. So far this season (guys and girls) has the best vocalists and most orginal performers yet.
