American Idol 13: Top 10 Studio Versions

Just when I thought the show's done producing studio versions of the finalists' performances - they didn't release any for the last 3 weeks - here they are in full force. In fact, American Idol has allowed these tracks to rank for the first time on iTunes. The results aren't great maybe because they weren't as advertised as previous seasons, but it's an interesting insight.

Here's how they ranked against other songs available on iTunes (as of 2:30am EST).

#61 Story Of My Life - Alex Preston
#191 We Are Young - Sam Woolf
#351 Pumped Up Kicks - Jessica Meuse
#490 Wake Me Up - Majesty Rose
#623 When I Was Your Man - Malaya Watson
#1028 Clarity - Jena Irene
#1301 Perfect - MK Nobilette
#1316 Edge Of Glory - Caleb Johnson

Others are outside of the Top 1500.

Interesting stuff right? Alex Preston is obviously pulling away from the pack, and yes, his studio recording sounded mighty fine. I also enjoyed Jessica Meuse's Pumped Up Kicks and Majesty Rose's Wake Me Up.
