View Full Version : Top/Favorite 10 Performances on American Idol (all seasons)

Mar 11th, 2005, 12:57 AM
With the top 12 coming up next week, what do you guys think have been the top 10 (or favorite) performances of the past 3 seasons (include the top 24 of this season if you must)? And do you think anyone in this current crop has the goods to perform a really stand out performance?

My top 10 favorites

1. Jasmine Trias - I'll Never Love This Way Again (i love! love! love! this performance and can listen to it allll day long)
2. Kelly Clarkson - Stuff Like That There
3. Tamyra Gray - A House is Not A Home
4. La Toya London - All By Myself
5. Jennifer Hudson - The Circle of Life
6. Clay Aiken - Solitaire
7. Diana Degarmo - Don't Cry Out Loud
8. Kelly Clarkson - Natural Woman
9. Tamyra Gray - A Fool In Love
0. Fantasia Barrino - Summertime

I feel like there's a few people who certainly have the talent to put up some legendary performances of American Idol proportions in this current group: Carrie, Anwar, and Jessica. My problem with these three is that while vocally they are there, they haven't really connected with me with any of their performances. Yes, they are great performances but I have yet to really feel that they have found the right song to convery some emotions and connection with the audience.

I think both Nadia and Mario have great stage pressence but they will need to really stretch the vocals to do it for me. I've been impressed because fo their performances but not with their voices really.

this is a good idea...............mine are as follows:

1. Kelly Clarkson- Without you
2. Tamyra Gray- A House is not a Home
3. Fantasia- Summertime
4. Kelly Clarkson- Stuff Like that There
5. Latoya London- Dont Rain on my Parade
6. Latoya London- all by myself

10. Kimberly Caldwell- Come to my window

I just realized that my list is only girls lol...............but i havent really like any of the guys on any of the seasons so far (i do like mario this year though).......but these were definitely my faves.

A house is not a home by Tamyra for me :D And Natural Woman by Kelly, that note :eek: :D Without you was also great....

In season 2, i really liked trenice singing that song in the wild card competition..I jsut don't remember the title ;) Season 2 wasn't as good for me as the other two in great eprformances!

Season 3, i jsut loved Circle of life by Jennfier Hudson. Summertime by fantasia was :eek: :worship: Latoya sang great on almost all of her songs, but all by myself was great!

Strangely, i don't remember the song msot of u put in there by Kelly, Stuff like that there....im sure when ill listen toit ill remember though!

This is easy. Fantasia's performance of 'Summertime' was just simply sensational.blows all the other competition away.

2. Fantasia Barrino - I Believe (Finale)
3. Jennifer Hudson- Circle of Life (Elton John Night)
4. Latoya London- If I had it all (Barry Mantilo night)
5. Anwar Robinson "What a wonderful world" (this past monday)
6. George Huff- "Sittin on the dock of the Bay"
7. Ruben Studdard "A whole new world"

10. Mikalah Gordon- "God Bless the Child"

Great thread! I have fallen in love with Diana Degarmo's voice. At first it was Kelly, now I am into Diana ;) So most of the Diana stuff will be at the top of my list. Where as Kelly's performances are starting to fall in my mind, just because I am so into Diana right now.

Here goes, but I am biased.... Diana vs Kelly :yeah:


1. Diana Degarmo - Dont cry out loud
2. Diana Degarmo - This is it
3. Diana Degarmo - No more tears
4. Diana Degarmo - Think
5. Diana Degarmo - Because you loved me
6. Kelly Clarkson - Without you
7. Diana Degarmo - One voice
8. Kelly Clarkson - Surrender
9. Kelly Clarkson - Stuff like that there
10. Kelly Clarkson - Walk on by

Honarable mention (Diana Degarmo - I got the music in me)
