[American Idol-izer] Top 7 Perform

Tyanna Jones performs on American Idol XIV

Man, I’m so sorry I wasn’t here to cover last week for you all (I moved cross country). So much went down last week, and with so little space here, I can’t cover it all. Daniel Seavey finally went home (he was bad, folks), Idol introduced a feature from its big competitor The Voice with the #IdolSave (sort of as an apology from using the save too early in the season, I guess), and Kelly Clarkson was all sorts of fabulous.

Now it looks like we’re moving away from the theme weeks as this week is a general “Billboard Top 100 Hits” featuring Florida Georgia Line and Jason Derulo as guest mentors. The whole night was filled with single shilling performances, and it was the first time in a long while that felt like a current competition. For once, it felt like whoever wins this can actually survive on the radio. Unfortunately, that meant the mentor critiques weren’t as strong as they were in past episodes. I know Florida Georgia Line is a big name right now, but after hearing what they had to say to the contestants I question their musicality entirely. Jason Derulo wasn’t too bad though.

Also, Iggy Azalea and Jennifer Hudson performed for some reason. It was a totally sour way to bring Hudson back. I know she’s not a winner, but she deserved better than this. Then again, at least she fared better than Ruben Studdard and Candice Glover last week. Yikes

Anyway, let’s break down the Top 7.

Nick Valdez is a second rate beauty queen who’s dreaming of the bar scene. From graduating college, finding Bigfoot (by taking off his shoes), to writing about movies, he’s been looking for that one special thing. Or cute girls. Whatever comes first, really.
