'American Idol': Pia Toscano, Lauren Alaina & Thia Megia Wow the Judges

Wow, what a difference a TV mix can make. Watching last night's broadcast of "American Idol's" Top 12 guys was a good reminder of the stark contrast between how the performances feel in the studio and how they actually sound to the viewer at home. It may be something Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler will have to address on Thursday's show, once they've had the chance to watch the episodes back.

They, in turn, might want to take a few of their comments back. Randy Jackson is, of course, well aware of the disparity, but also wasn't nearly as fawning over the Top 12 guys as his fellow judges. ( Read Pia Toscano more... )

By night's end, Pia Toscano and Ashthon Jones emerged as the ones to beat, while teens Thia Megia and Lauren Alaina appeared to have also punched their cards into the top 10.

Beyoncé impersonator Ta-Tynisa Wilson, 20, did the honors and went first, singing Rihanna's "Only Girl (In the World)," while wearing a geometric-patterned poodle skirt. Though she looked the part, her thin, squeaky vocals were way off and the band's tinny new wave arrangement did her no favors. ( Read Pia Toscano more... )

Pia Toscano gets a standing O with a Pretenders tune

Pia Toscano gets tonight's pimp spot for her version of The Pretenders' I'll Stand by You (also covered by Carrie Underwood). Chrissie Hynde's songs are a lot tougher to sing than they seem, because Chrissie's phrasing is so off the beat that most other singers sound stilted when they try them.

Pia straightens the song out a little bit but not too much. She also nails the modulation into the last chorus effortlessly, and then she goes for a couple of big ol' glory notes. It's a classic old-school Idol performance. ( Read Pia Toscano more... )
