Curtin Call! The official American Idol Blog: Top 11

Why, hello! Fancy seeing you here!

Welcome to the American Idol blog. I'm Lindsay Curtin, a reporter for WECT/WSFX and I have many conflicting feelings about this season. I'm waiting for some intense talent to shine through the seemingly dull batch of singers.

I have a couple favorites but tonight is "Motown" night and I have the feeling things will be great!

So, grab your guilty pleasure food items ( Mexican for me) and hang out with us at and on our fox26 facebook page-- where you can make comments on the show!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that NO ONE sings "Heard It Through The Grapevine." Singers on this show have an affinity to that song and I just can't see why!

OH MY GOSH! "HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE" is the first performance of the night. I freak myself out sometimes.

Casey Abrams- Did a great job with the song but I just can't take this guy seriously. I appreciate that he isn't afraid to be crazy.

Thia Megia- Started out strong but let things fall flat a little bit in the middle when she forgot a couple words. This performance was definitely better than last week and I think she has the potential to do a great job.. but she needs to cut loose just a little more.

Jacob Lusk- Wowee! This guy is insane! INSANELY awesome! He did all the right things to that song and his facial expressions were priceless. He's got attitude... and my vote! What I love even more is that Steven Tyler marched his skinny little legs up on stage to give Jacob a hug.

Lauren Alaina- Serenading Randy Jackson can't be easy.. so props for that move. I liked the performance. It was by far the most personality she's shown in any of her songs. I'm sorry I don't have anything creative to say... I wasn't blown away.

Stefano Langone- Hmm.. He has a good voice but he won't win. He just doesn't stand out. Jennifer Lopez's critique was pretty spot-on. He didn't connect with the song.

Haley Reinhart- Has a fantastic voice but she seemed scared to death of those shoes.

I just noticed that every time Steven Tyler gives a little piece of craziness the audience goes nuts.

Scotty is supposedly "leaving his comfort zone." This could be fantastic or disastrous... Let's see..

Scotty McCreery- is a twin to the Mad Magazine cartoon drawing. Just look it up on Google-- you will be amazed. I think Scotty is a very likeable guy, which is what will get him far on this competition. I wouldn't buy Scotty's cd because he sounds just like Garth Brooks, however I think he will float through to the next round.

Pia Toscano- Her voice is ridiculous and she's definitely a hot mama. However, her song was boring-- no flavor or attitude.

"Tracks of my Tears" is a fantastically sad song. I hope Paul delivers

Paul McDonald- It's nice to see him perform a song without freaking out all over the stage. It was smooth, but I'm still not a fan.

Naima Adedapo- If you look at her really quickly and then look away, she looks like Tyra Banks. Yes? Hey Now!! I think she did a FANTASTIC JOB! Her creativity finally paid off because her little African dance break fit perfectly.

James Durbin- This is just an unfortunate result of being a hardcore Idol fan but I can't help comparing him to Adam Lambert. He, to me, is a lesser version of Adam Lambert. I'm SORRY! I know everyone loves him.

I think Stefano or Thia will get the boot. I like Thia's voice better but Stefano probably makes a lot of hearts melt (not mine).

Thanks for hanging out on and Facebook. Time to watch Michelle Li ( one of the funniest, sweetest people I've met here in Wilmington) and Jon Evans ( the coolest cat in the hat) for Fox26 news at 10 !
