American Idol - The Semi Finals

And then there were three. It is down to Jordin, Blake and Melinda now. And how did they do tonight?

Song #1
Jordin was up first and did well. After the past few weeks I wasn't sure how she would do, but she has redeemed herself.
Blake sang Roxanne. I just love The Police. I think he did great, minus the breaking the mic incident at the end. Oops.
Melinda went last. So far she is the weakest of the evening, IMO.
So how did they place? Jordin, Blake and then Melinda.

Song #2
Jordin did "work hard for her money" on that song. She has great vocals.
Blake and Maroon 5. I loved, loved, loved it. Perfect song choice.
Melinda... I have to admit I fast forwarded the DVR to get caught up. She just didn't strike my interest with the first few notes. Sorry Melinda.
So for song #2, Blake, Jordin and then Melinda.

Song #3
Jordin... I hate the song itself, but a perfect showcase of her range. I do have to agree with Simon on the song choice though.
Blake. Okay I LOVED the clip from his hometown. "I like big butts and I cannot lie..." As for his song tonight (you know the real reason for this post) I cannot stand Robin Thicke. (Sorry Alan, AKA Jason Seaver) I personally wish he would have chosen The Cure. Good performance overall. You can tell that he was having a blast and enjoys being up there. In my opinion that has alot to do with being an "Idol".
Melinda, Melinda, Melinda... This was her best performance of the evening. I think many of the things I liked about her in the beginning of the season showed in this performance. I still can't see her being an "American Idol".
This round I say Melinda, Blake and then Jordin. Sorry Jordin, but song choice, song choice song choice.

So who will go? I think it would be a toss up between Blake and Melinda. Who would I like to go? Melinda. I would love to see a Blake versus Jordin final. No matter what they all have huge futures ahead of them.
