American Idol Season 12 Episode 8

Posted by Shane on Thursday, February 7, 2013 at 8:58 pm

An all male Hollywood week began for the boys in American Idol Season 12 Episode 7 with some solo performances followed by group night. I missed the first few minutes of tonight’s show making preparations for snowmageddon, but it’s American Idol, so how much could I have really missed? Looks like we’re picking up on day 3, some more solo performances.

The contestants will receive immediate results. No waiting, no rooms.

Devin Velez (What a Wonderful World), Gurpreet Singh Sarin (Georgia on My Mind), Cortez Shaw, and Matheus Fernandes (Stronger by Kelly Clarkson) are in group 2. So apparently what I missed was group 1. They tell Matheus to stop talking about being short. To be fair, they’re the ones encouraging people talking about their otherwise irrelevant stories. Devin, Gurpreet, Cortez, and Adam Sanders are through to the next round.

Nicholas Mathis gives a somewhat rough performance. Papa Peachez tells us he’s not a puppet and has his own thing going on, which would explain his bad choice of nicknames. His performance has Nicki more disappointed still. Jimmy Smith has slightly more luck. Nick and Papa have been cut. Papa says he doesn’t like singing other people’s songs anyway.

Nick Boddington made it to Vegas last year, so he should be a lock to do so again. He decides to play the keyboard, and on top of that he’s a great singer. Charlie Askew is as awkward as ever, but his voice stands out despite that. They both advance along with JDA and Mathenee Treco. If Mathenee’s this good and auditioned in Oklahoma, why didn’t we see him instead of the ridiculous nonsense they chose to show?

Burnell Taylor and Marvin Calderon move to the next round after both singing Jar of Hearts.

Micah Johnson surprises with a Randy Travis song, but it’s not good enough to make it to the next round. Gabe Brown, Sanni, and Nate Tao have also been eliminated.

28 people have been chosen. Since they need to narrow it down to a top 20, 8 more will be cut next week.

Stay tuned to dingoRUE for another live recap of American Idol Season 12 Episode 9, which airs Wednesday at 8/7c on Fox.
