American Idol Las Vegas 2013 - Group 2 Girls

The pressure if not only on these ten ladies performing tonight, but it is also on the American Idol judges 2013 as well. Not only do Mariah Carey, Nicki Minaj, Keith Urban and Randy Jackson have to sit through these performances, but they also have to decide on which women move on and which women to send home. The list of women is strong for tonight, so I am hoping to see some amazing performances, which will also result in some shocking eliminations on American Idol Las Vegas 2013! Who you looking forward to seeing tonight on Idol?


The following post contains American Idol Las Vegas 2013 spoilers and videos for Group 3 on American Idol Season 12. Please stop reading if you do not want to know what happened!


Melinda Ademia – “Nobody’s Perfect” by Jessie J

Judges: Keith Urban said he really loved that performance and half way through the performance he felt that she got into the performance. Nicki Minaj said Angela Miller sang the song last week and it felt more connected and that is all she could think of. Randy Jackson said it was okay, but he didn’t know if she had enough big moments in there and she could be in trouble tonight. Mariah Carey said it is a tough night tonight and being in this venue the nerves got to her.

Candice Glover – “Natural Woman” by Aretha Franklin

Judges: Keith said that was beautiful and that was a great song choice. Nicki said you were definitely born to do this and it boggles her brain that she didn’t make it past Vegas last year. Randy said she is one of her favorites in the competition this season and she now believes she belongs here. Mariah said she agrees that she is a bona fide singer and that is what this whole show is about.

Juliana Chahayed – “Skyscraper” by Demi Lovato

Judges: Keith said she was struggling with pitch in places of the song, but their is a purity about her voice that he loves. Nicki said she is one of the people here that has a signature to her voice that is recognizable. Randy said he kept thinking about the honesty of her performance and he likes that and it was a good performance. Mariah said there was an angelic quality that she felt.

Jett Hermano – “Only Girl (In The World)” by Rihanna

Judges: Keith loves the arrangement and she brought out this sexiness in the song. Nicki said she thought it was going to climax to something, but she never felt that. Randy said he thought she was going to get up in the middle and rock out, which they yelled at Shubha Vedula last week for doing, right? Mariah said there is something different about her and it is intriguing.

Cristabel Clack – “No One” by Alicia Keys

Judges: Keith loves her voice and thinks she has crazy potential. Nicki said she likes that songs for her and she has a unique voice and loves the rasp, but today it seemed like it got out of control. Randy said she was right on point. Mariah said keep doing what you are doing and she wishes her only the best in the competition.

Aubrey Cleland – “Sweet Dreams” by Beyonce

Judges: Keith said he loves what the girls are doing with these songs and she has balance between poise and fire in her voice. Nicki said she is obsessed with her. Randy said he is a huge fan of her too and she is a very great commercial artist. Mariah said she is limitless.

Rachel Hale – “Nothing But The Water” by Grace Potter & The Nocturnals

Judges: Keith said he loved that she chose that song, but the song got on top of her a little bit in parts. Nicki said she is excited that she came to life tonight. Randy said he was happy she chose an uptempo song and loves seeing this side of her. Mariah said you are always that girl with that smile that you can’t help but smile back.

Breanna Steer – “Bust Your Windows” by Jazmine Sullivan

Judges: Keith said he loves that song and liked the whole vibe she had going on. Nicki said her and Aubrey could go out and get a record deal now and do videos and records. Randy said she is the other one that he said he would sign right away and she has the whole package and she knows who she is. Mariah said she loved her presentation and she is extremely marketable.

Janelle Arthur – “Just A Kiss” by Lady Antebellum

Judges: For American Idol Las Vegas 2013, Keith said the song doesn’t give you a chance to soar and he felt for her. Nicki said when she sings normally she has this silent confidence, but she did not have it tonight. Randy said she is his favorite country singer in the competition and that song was not the right song for her. Mariah said she is definitely a fan and se was excited to see her tonight on American Idol Las Vegas 2013.

Zoanette Johnson – “Circle of Life” from The Lion King

Judges: Keith said he loves that he has no clue of what she is going to do and hail to the queen. Nicki said she just served it and she makes her so emotional and that song was such a smart choice. Randy said that spirit is the reason why she made it this far on American Idol Season 12 and it is infectious. Mariah said she is so proud and happy for her and her spirit is too big to be contained.

  1. stopped watching i am very dissapointed to bad they will lose so many viewers … this is nuts , its sad never missed a season i guess we are 30 people that have stopped …

  2. well we can look at it this way we can move people on or send others home like the blonde clown!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. James Ratliff says:

    Wow. Five very talented young ladies went home tonight instead of four because someone with little to no singing ability was voted through by the judges because she came from Africa and had to overcome adversity. Is this American Idol or Ophra? I will no longer be a viewer. Very shocked and disappointed.

  4. Lakota jones says:

    A lot of the comments hit one area! Action should be takin. Thx

  5. april quillen says:

    What is wrong this year why is the blonde head clown still there

  6. Sandy labelle says:

    I use to love this show. Tune up your music ear instead of your nasty ear. The Voice is a better show with more talented judges who show more class when dealing with their talent. You missed the mark with the girls. I won’t sit through the sudden death of the guys. Who is everyone kidding. Randy makes the final decision period. Sadly Keith and Mariah chose the wrong show to debut.

  7. Lakota jones says:

    I know you have a hard job, but come on! You get rid of some of the best entertainment Melinda was had to beat for energy, you put through people that I fall asleep to and not in a good way, rethink what people want to hear, I understand you want voice talent but take into the people that keep others like myself energized to stay on keepin on. Up beat and feeling is where I feel it is going these days. No one needs stress music about heart breaks to make some mentalist go crazy. I feel you made three good choices tonight and the cocain and booze got to you for the other two. Drug test should be done on judges! I know your viewers are not watching from Canada cause you put Nicky as a judge, some of her comments about some of the performers? She should be asked to watch herself before she finds herself in legal action. Sexual intended comments should be not takin lightly, like I said it is a hard and stressful job so keep it up just take another look at who should be moving on. Thx

  8. Julianna the 15 year old brought out the very best of what an american idal should be. My second best choice for actual performance, but if Idol is about dreams, the judges missed it tonight. I doubt I, my family or friends will continue to follow it this season. Maybe next year.

  9. Greg Belyea says:

    Nicki needs to immediately stop talking with her hands and touching her hair. Everytime the camera is on here she’s using her claws to stroke her hair. These are a couple of her many annoying habits. I have never before contacted American Idol but I am so aggravated by this that I felt you should know that this does not present very well on television. I hope you can do something about this annoying behaviour and rethink you choices for next seasons judges. Thank you for allowing me to speak my mind.

    Watched one of the beginning shows, and I hated the bickersons.
    tuned you in agin tonight and get those 2 (edit – bad word) off the judging panel for next season….their egos, antics and attitudes out shine, but like a thunderstorm everything…you lost me for this season

    • Lakota jones says:

      Sally, you have the same thing to say as a lot of other people I know. I am very glad you said it. Thx Lakota
