American Idol Season 5 - Episode 26 Recaps

Tonight, we witnessed many things happen for the first time since the start of the season. For the first time in this season, Randy's more flamboyant than Paula. For the first time in this season, Paula got booed. For the first time in this season, Ryan got a quirky beard. For the first time in this season, Chris sang something else outside his genre. And for the first time in this season, Bucky actually did a decent performance.
So tonight's theme is country, so obviously we've got a guest star, who of course will give a performance tomorrow, and he's Kenny Rogers. The star of the night once again is Paris Bennett, who made a perfect choice singing country hit song 'How Do I Live'. Mandisa and Elliott also rocked the stage. Taylor Hicks was disappointing, though, the song choice was so mediocre, it didn't show his vocal range and personality at all. We got extra cheese from Chris and Ace, who both tried to belt out corny ballads. To be honest, I got enough of Ace trying so damn hard to croon and make the girls drool at the same time. Sooner or later, he'll be voted off, like Kellie (who performed okay even though tonight she was right in her comfort zone), he stayed on the show this long mainly because of his looks more than his singing ability . However, that's not gonna happen tomorrow, because I think Katharine was the weakest tonight. She could've done better than that. Way better.

So here are my top 5 for this week:

1. Paris Bennett
2. Mandisa
3. Elliott Yamin
4. Taylor Hicks
5. Kellie Pickler

Stay tuned for my recaps for the elimination night.
