Vocal Masterclass Discussion For American Idol Season 12 Top 2 Performance Show

This is the final week of American Idol Season 12. Yippee! What a yawn fest this show has become! Seriously! Basta! Get with the plan, Idol Producers, and get this show back on track next season.

That being said, I would like to wish Candice Glover and Kree Harrison the very best of luck during tonight’s show. They have been strong contenders all season and I have no doubt they will both do very well.

Unfortunately, I will not be able to post a Vocal Masterclass article for tonight’s show. Things have come up on my end, so I apologize for this. . Things have a way of sorting out. The Top 2 Vocal Masterclass article is now up! Enjoy!

If you want to be spoiled re song choices, they are available at The Idol Pad.

So, comment away everyone. Do you like these song choices? Who are you rooting for?

  1. So Chasing Pavements was chosen for Candice to sing tonight of all nights????!!! These peole who run Idol are so ridiculous. Well Kudos to Candice though for making it her own the best she could. But that song really didn’t give her a chance to have a moment. Well enough talk. I’d better get a votin’!!


  2. I think that the last song more than made up for any deficiencies of previous selections for Candice. I do love the fact that it was an older song as well


  3. I agree, Anita. “Chasing Pavements” was boring. I had hope Candice would have done some an uptempo song. What are the producers thinking? To be honest, I don’t think Candice has had a bad son all season. I always looked forward to what she would sing.

    Kree has had a good season with some exceptional songs. However, tonight was not her best night. She’s a good singer, but not outstanding. Her popularity may carry her for the Idol win, but I feel Candice is more deserving.

    Why did Carly sing on the show? Why have a singer who is not as good as the finalists? Please don’t think I am silly, but Carly’s skimpy type outfit and her moving around on the floor seemed to show a contrast to Candice and Kree. Why even have a guest? At any rate, it should be a guy.

    Candice for the win!!


  4. Yes, why was Carly on this show? Silly. She is not a favorite of mine – totally over- rated.

    That being said, I thought both girls were very good but not great. However, Candice stole the night with her reprise of “I Who Have Nothing”.

    All ballads, no guys, poor song selections = dismal show. Boy, Idol Producers have some work to do to get this show back on track!
