Vocal Masterclass Discussion Thread For American Idol Season XIII Top 15 Male Singers

Okay, so supposedly we have the Top 15 guys performing on Wednesday evening. But, after Tuesday evening’s show, we know better, correct?

I have pretty much said all that I am going to say about the format of the show this season – for now! It is what it is and 5 guys will be sent packing on Wednesday without being given an opportunity to perform. Yay for fairness – sarcasm intended.

“Performing” on Wednesday’s show are:

  1. Casey Thrasher
  2. Caleb Johnson
  3. Maurice Townsend
  4. Malcolm Allen
  5. Dexter Roberts
  6. Ethan Harris
  7. Spencer Lloyd
  8. Jordan Brisbane
  9. C.J. Harris
  10. Sam Woolf
  11. George Lovett
  12. Ben Briley
  13. Briston Maroney
  14. Emmanuel Zidor
  15. Alex Preston

In closing, I thought the mentoring sessions with Randy Jackson, Adam Lambert, Chris Daughtry and Michael Orland were excellent. And Rickey Minor and his band were exceptional as always. So good to see him back with Idol. He is my link to the now retired Jay Leno, whom I dearly miss on The Tonight Show. But, in fairness, Jimmy Fallon was the perfect successor.

Any suggestions on who you think will be cut from the live show? Comments are now open for business.
