Three more singers joined the "American Idol" Top 12 :
( Allison Iraheta, Adam Lambert and Kris Allen )
After Wednesday's performanve show, Iraheta and Lambert seemed like shoe-ins for the Top 12-even though some fans criticized Lambert for oversinging.
Allen's spot in the Top 12 was somewhat a suprise, as he received little air time priorto semifinals. But his controlled,vocallysound take on Michael Jackson's - Man in the mirror gave an edge on a night when the majority of singers chose songs too big or too small for their talent levels.
Now , the Top 12 includes six singers :
Alexis Grace , Danny Gokey , Michael Sarver , Allison Iraheta , Adam Lambert and Kris Allen .

American Idol Semis Week II ( prediction )

Adam Lembert
Jasmine Murray
Matt Giraud
Megan Corkrey
Here's my take on this week's crop of contestants .
This week just has to better than last Tuesday's suck-fest. I'm counting on beig entertained by Adam Lambert, Kris Allen, Matt Giraud, Megan Corkrey, Mishavonna henson and, of course, Nick Mitchell and Jasmine Murray ...
Adam Lambert - Adam, who has appeared in various theater productions including Wicked in LA, had a fan base coming to Idol, and it's been growing ever since . His highly theatrical style, even in tamped down version for middle Americawill make him a polarizing contestant from get go, I suspect. The producers love that, so I predict they'll advance him to the top 12 as a wild card if he doesn't wi the popular vote this week .
Jasmine Murray - Jasmine has had tons of screen time with lots of love from judges throughout the competition. I predict she'll be give a good performance slot, and if she doesn't sing well, Simon will plead with the audience to give her a second chance, or some such pimping. She's got a good shot at being highest female-getter this week.
Matt Giraud - Matt has been steadily gaining a fan base since his initial audition in Louisville. He sealed the deal with his soulful interpretation of "Georgia"in Hollywood. I would not be surprised if Matt headed stright to the Top 12 this week.
Megan Joy Corkrey - The judges adored Megan's unusual, quirky vocals during her audition. But will her talent translate onto the Idol stage? If she picks the right song, and sings it well, she could be a dark horse contender for the Top 12. Or she could flop spectacularly head back home to Utah .

The 36 finalist of American Idol 8
The first group of 12 semifinalists from American Idol's Top 36 took the stage last night durig the first live broadcast of the Fox reality competition's eighth season . Were Malaysia TV's , Astro air via Star World .

Singing hits from the Billboard hot 100, the first group consisted of 12 finalists .

"Now is really your shot. You've got to blow us away vocally,"judge Randy jackson said at the beginning of the broadcast. This is it, the public seeing you the first time. You've got to be in to really win it tonight."

Unfortunaetly the judges felt it was largely a night of missed opportunities for first group, some of whom also had a hard time finding their identity as performers ________________________________________________________________

In thats case , I like to watch the performance by

Ricky Braddy - A Song for You , were Randy said : "This is what I'm thinking about right here.This I feel is the start of Season 8 right here. I think we've got more talent this year than we've ever had and dude, that was unbelievable right there. Beautiful tone, nice voice, the way to jump it off! Thats the jump off Season 8 right there."

Alexis Grace - I Never Loved a Man ( The Way I Love You ) , Kara Said:"The genine is out of the bottle with you.You released something inside, and it has been a pleasure to watch you come out of shell. First girl that steppedup in frontof us that first time in the auditio city, it's not the girl tonight. It's a new girl and I love it. I'm digging. Youdid a great job."

Anoop Desai - Angel of Mine , Paula Said: "The great thing with you Anoop is America has connected with you in a large way already. This is a different side of you. I think wheather you were a little sharp or not, I think that you have that Brian McKnight feel to your voice. That's a compliment. I belive Aoop Dog is here for a while...Hopefully."

and Danny Gokey - Hero , Simon Said : "Back to the realworld. I thought it was good. It wasn't fantastic , it was good. The end part was great, the beginning was okay. The arrangement was a bit heavy-handed. You are very, very good singer. I like you,I'm just buying the hype right now."

Recently , the first three finalist of Season Eight are Alexis Grace , Michael Sarver and Danny Gokey .
