Top 12 men liveblog

So this is a competition show … but it’s not live? I don’t think I get the concept, but sure.

Jessica February 25, 20158:01 pm

¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Reuben February 25, 20158:02 pm

So we’re getting two shots at cutting the men, which I endorse.

Jessica February 25, 20158:04 pm

I guess Adam wants to rock

Reuben February 25, 20158:04 pm


Adam is singing I Wanna Rock by Twisted Sister

Jessica February 25, 20158:04 pm

Do you think they had those signs that light up to tell the audience when to yell Rock?

Reuben February 25, 20158:05 pm

That was almost an exact copy of the record.

Jessica February 25, 20158:06 pm

His name is Simeon but dude looks kinda like a neanderthal so I always think Michael Simian

Jessica February 25, 20158:06 pm

Also this song sucks. What song is this? Whatever. A sucky one.

Reuben February 25, 20158:06 pm


Michael is singing … How am I supposed to live without you by Michael Bolton OMFG WHY

Reuben February 25, 20158:06 pm

This guy is gone.

Jessica February 25, 20158:06 pm

Ohhhhhh this song. Right.

Jessica February 25, 20158:07 pm

Have we even heard this song in recent years? I think earlier Idols sang it because they had to?

Reuben February 25, 20158:07 pm

Die in a fire.

Jessica February 25, 20158:09 pm

Answer: no, not since Season 4.

Reuben February 25, 20158:09 pm

So wait, what’s voting rule now? At most 20 votes per method? That’s a big change from last year.

Reuben February 25, 20158:13 pm

Detroit: people still live here!

Jessica February 25, 20158:13 pm

Oh Savion. This isn’t very good.

Reuben February 25, 20158:13 pm


Savion is singing Hey Soul Sister by Train

Reuben February 25, 20158:14 pm

“Utterly forgettable”

Reuben February 25, 20158:14 pm

Didn’t someone sing this in the Hollywood round?

Jessica February 25, 20158:15 pm

Given the voting population’s racist tendencies, Savion should have done something a lot better than that stupid song.

Jessica February 25, 20158:16 pm

Huh. Interesting choice.

Reuben February 25, 20158:16 pm

Mark Andrew is singing The Weight by The Band

Jessica February 25, 20158:17 pm

I can’t put my finger on what this is missing that The Band had

Reuben February 25, 20158:18 pm

Sounded ok to me. I think he’s fine.

Reuben February 25, 20158:18 pm

Well, that guy is never ever going to be Levon Helm.

Jessica February 25, 20158:19 pm

Yeah, it’s probably just that he’s Not Levon Helm

Jessica February 25, 20158:19 pm

I should put up a new poll

Reuben February 25, 20158:20 pm

Also skipping almost the entirety of the song and ditching the three part harmony. But as a single person, 90 second expo I thought it was fine.

Jessica February 25, 20158:21 pm

There, refresh and there will be a new poll

Jessica February 25, 20158:21 pm

Yeah, it was fine

Jessica February 25, 20158:23 pm

This The Last Man on Earth show I keep seeing commercials for looks terrible

Jessica February 25, 20158:23 pm

Trevor Douglas, possible Fake Geek Guy

Reuben February 25, 20158:23 pm

Trevor Douglas is singing Best I Ever Had by Gavin Degraw

Jessica February 25, 20158:24 pm

Oh wow he sounds terrible

Jessica February 25, 20158:24 pm

I think maybe his in-ear monitors are maladjusted. They should bring back JLo’s ex-husband to work on that with them again.

Reuben February 25, 20158:24 pm

This is under the pitch on a lot of notes

Reuben February 25, 20158:25 pm

I did not enjoy that.

Jessica February 25, 20158:26 pm

He wished Seacrest luck. Um. Why?

Jessica February 25, 20158:26 pm

Siiiiiiigh.

Reuben February 25, 20158:26 pm

Clark Beckham is singing When a Man Loves a Woman

Jessica February 25, 20158:27 pm

I hate this a lot

Reuben February 25, 20158:27 pm

I think it’s pretty good.

Jessica February 25, 20158:28 pm

Yeah I’m not sure why I hate it

Reuben February 25, 20158:28 pm

I don’t know if I loved it, but it was enjoyable and showed his chops.

Jessica February 25, 20158:34 pm

You don’t see that many porkpie hats anymore.

Reuben February 25, 20158:34 pm

Rayvon Owens is singing Jealous by Nick Jonas

Jessica February 25, 20158:35 pm

This is sung well enough. I remain unwowed. His high notes are good though.

Reuben February 25, 20158:35 pm

Yeah, it was just fine. The song itself just isn’t that good.

Reuben February 25, 20158:36 pm

Maybe Jennifer shouldn’t indicate that a black guy be more “thug”. Slightly offensive.

Jessica February 25, 20158:36 pm

Ugh can we please ditch this twelve-year-old?

Reuben February 25, 20158:37 pm

Daniel Seavey is singing I’m Yours by Jason Mraz

Reuben February 25, 20158:37 pm

This is both sung badly and a horrible song choice.

Jessica February 25, 20158:37 pm

Reuben loves this song. Because it has so much ukulele.

Reuben February 25, 20158:38 pm

I didn’t know Star Search was still on

Reuben February 25, 20158:38 pm

Seriously, f*** that performance.

Reuben February 25, 20158:39 pm

That’s not a mandolin. A mandolin is an 8 string steel instrument. WTF.

Reuben February 25, 20158:44 pm


Riley Bria is singing Homeboy by Eric Church

Jessica February 25, 20158:44 pm

Poor Riley. He’s almost but not quite really cute.

Jessica February 25, 20158:45 pm

His singing is decent though

Reuben February 25, 20158:45 pm

I’m not saying I enjoyed this, but I think Riley is safe.

Jessica February 25, 20158:45 pm

Yeah. Way.

Reuben February 25, 20158:46 pm

Unlike a couple of guys last year, that guy can actually play.

Jessica February 25, 20158:46 pm

Keith Suburban. I like it.

Reuben February 25, 20158:47 pm


Quentin Alexander is singing I Put a Spell on You which is a standard

Jessica February 25, 20158:47 pm

I hope this is going somewhere

Jessica February 25, 20158:48 pm

So far: not really

Jessica February 25, 20158:48 pm

It went somewhere, but it was somewhere kinda bad

Reuben February 25, 20158:48 pm

That had some rough spots, but overall it was passable.

Jessica February 25, 20158:49 pm

Yeah, like I wanted to like it, and some parts were good. I hope he stays so he can do better.

Reuben February 25, 20158:50 pm

The supervote is gone, and 20 vote limit per method, so this season might be more similar to previous years than last year. I wonder if Dialidol will be back.

Reuben February 25, 20158:55 pm

Nick Fradiani is singing Think out Loud by Ed Sheeran

Jessica February 25, 20158:55 pm

This seems fine

Reuben February 25, 20158:55 pm

This guy is Daughtry/David Cook. Safe.

Jessica February 25, 20158:56 pm

Possibly part of my problem is every song has too much band behind it maybe?

Reuben February 25, 20158:56 pm

I kinda liked that. Good on Nick

Reuben February 25, 20158:58 pm

Qaasim Middleton is singing Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson

Jessica February 25, 20158:58 pm

Qaasim is, uh, stylin’

Jessica February 25, 20158:58 pm

Dude can dance. This is not boring.

Reuben February 25, 20158:58 pm

This is pretty terrific.

Reuben February 25, 20159:00 pm

Oh, the supervote is not gone. But it is limited to 20?

Jessica February 25, 20159:01 pm

The only one I feel even remotely compelled to vote for is Qaasim, I think

Reuben February 25, 20159:02 pm

So if we lose 4, who are the 4? I think Daniel, Rayvon, Michael and Trevor should definitely go home. But Savion may be out instead of Michael.
