Top 16 - Girls Night

It's girls night on American Idol! Keep an eye on this post for up to the minute updates on all the happenings of tonight's episode!

Katie Stevens - "Breakaway" by Kelly Clarkson - (Download on iTunes) - Not that great, I was never a huge Katie fan, I wont mind if she leaves this week, which I think she might after that performance. Randy says the song is too big for her. Ellen says she didn't see any personality. Kara says she has a great radio voice, but doesn't believe in herself. Simon says she is taking the judges advice, but doesn't know what kind of artist she wants to be.

Siobhan Magnus - "House Of The Rising Sun" by The Animals - (Download on iTunes) - Absolutely BEAUTIFUL. This is the winner of American Idol right here! Randy says to keep doing what she is doing, because it's hot. Ellen says it moved her. Kara says she loved the a capella at the beginning. Simon says he was not a fan of the performance, says it was weird.

Lacey Brown - "The Story" by Brandi Carlile - (Download on iTunes) - Better than last week, but I don't think this is enough to put her into the top 12. Randy says it was her best performance in a long time. Ellen says it was her best performance to date. Kara says it was effortless singing. Simon says she sang the song really well.

Katelyn Epperly - "I Feel The Earth Move" by Carole King - (Download on iTunes) - She sang the song well, but it was a very typical American Idol performance, not special like when she sang The Scientist last week. Randy says he didn't feel the vibe. Ellen says she didn't wow. Kara says she doesn't know what happened. Simon says she didn't do anything special with the song.

Didi Benami - "Rhiannon" by Fleetwood Mac - (Download on iTunes) - Beautiful heartfelt performance, this SHOULD be enough to put her into the top 12. Randy says he would like to see her sing again. Ellen says it was a lovely performance. Kara says it was one of her favorite moments of the SEASON! Simon says he agrees with Kara, says it was the best of the night.

Paige Miles - "Smile" by Charlie Chaplin - (Download on iTunes) - Awful performance, there is no way she will make the top 12 with this performance. Randy says it didn't work. Ellen says the song was sad and heavy. Kara says it was all wrong. Simon says it was a horrible choice of song.

Crystal Bowersox - "Give Me One Reason" by Tracy Chapman - (Download on iTunes) - One of the best of the night. She will sail through into the top 12 and beyond. Randy said that was hot. Ellen says best of the night. Kara says she is excited. Simon says she is the one to beat.

Lilly Scott - "I Fall To Pieces" by Patsy Cline - (Download on iTunes) - Do not want Lilly anywhere near a country song. She's great, but maybe not for this song. Randy says well done. Ellen says she loved it. Kara says she made Patsy Cline feel current. Simon says she is brave to choose that song, but did not have the wow factor.

My picks to go home: Paige & Katie
