American Idol 2013 Recap 2/27/13 – Semi-Finalists Part 3

Judges’ Comments: A standing ovation from Keith, Nicki, and Randy! The audience is just absolutely freaking out. The male contestants in the audience are cheering, blowing kisses, and crying. Zoanette is crying. This was insane. Keith starts by saying he has no idea what she’s going to do in her career, but he can’t wait to see it. Nicki says, “Zoanette, who gon’ check you boo – you just served it.” Nicki then begins crying (!!) and says she’s so proud of her and that she was “unforgettable” and a “superstar.” Randy tells Zoanette, and the audience, that her “spirit” and passion was reflected in the song – not just in the way she sang it, but in the lyrics. He doesn’t really put together a coherent thought, but he loved it. Mariah says that “it’s almost like her spirit was too big to be contained,” and she expects big things.

    It was an unforgettable performance. I loved it so much, I’ve watched it about 4 or 5 times. Mariah made an important point; no, Zoanette does not have the “cookie cutter” image, but there is no doubt that she brought down the house with her Circle of Life performance.
