It was the first ladies night on American Idol season seven. A handful of contestants were impressive, while a few others - such as Kristy Lee Cook and Joanne Borgella - suffered through the flu.
The following three women left the best impression on our staff after an evening of auditions:
- Brooke White: She hasn't received as much publicity as other semifinalists, but this innocent young blonde wowed judges with her rendition of "Happy Together." Paula said: "You picked the right song and you did a great job."
- Asia'h Epperson: Simon referred to her performance of "Piece of My Heart" as his "favorite of the night." We've been major supporters of this star since her first audition.
- Ramiele Malubay, meanwhile, continues to prove that good things come in small packages. Perhaps contradicing himelf with his praise of Epperson, Simon nonetheless told Malubay that "tonight, you outsang every single person."
