American Idol 12: Top 9 Studio Versions

.. and then they were down to 9. During the live performance night, almost everyone rose to the challenge with the Lennon-McCartney songbook, but was it the same story when it comes to the studio recordings? Not exactly.

RANDOM THOUGHTS: Amber Holcomb probably has the BEST recording this week - or even this season. I honestly could listen to this over and over. I honestly don't know what is it about Amber's voice, maybe the mixture of tone, effortlessness and clarity, but it's absolutely divine. Janelle Arthur also has a nice recording with a very appealing old country sound to her voice. Candice Glover, yet again, has a better live performance than her studio version. Oh, and sue me, but I hated Angie Miller's version of Yesterday. Just like her live performance, she overly interpreted the song. It's pageanty with no nuance whatsoever. 

Amber Holcomb: She's Leaving Home
Angela Miller: Yesterday
Burnell Taylor: Let It Be
Candice Glover: Come Together
Devin Velez: A Long and Winding Road
Janelle Arthur: I Will
Kree Harrison: With A Little Help From My Friends
Lazaro Arbos: In My Life
Paul Jolley: Eleanor Rigby
