I have just been following the live updates of who makes the Top 13. Most of the choices seem good with a few shocks. So the Top 13 are...
Most of the favourites and my favourites are there, it's going to be a tough Top 13. The only contestants I'm not too sure about are Paul McDonald, Stefano Langone and Haley Reinhart. I like Paul and I think he can be amazing but I didn't like his Top 24 performance, neither did I like Stefano's Top 24 performance. Whilst I don't really like Haley at all!
Early favourites Tim Halperin and Julie Zorilla are out. Tim was a bit boring to be honest whilst Julie catastrophically failed her Top 24 performance, however I thought Julie deserved a chance to sing for a wildcard spot - I was shocked when Kendra got a sing off spot. Also shocking for the viewers is that Lauren Turner, considered an early favourite, was not given a sing off spot. I didn't really like Lauren's performance but I thought she would have been considered.
Anyway I'm generally quite happy with the Top 13 though I would have liked to see more of Julie Zorilla. I will be rooting for Thia Megia because she's Asian! (oh and she has an amazing voice!)
