Starting with the drama of Crystal Bowersox's illness, tonight's live performance show was, to use a phrase Simon enjoys, a million times better than the guys' version the evening before.

There are a handful of females we could truly see winning this competition, led by the guitar player mentioned above. She leads the top five from the night, listed below:

  1. Crystal Bowersox: Loved how she didn't play the sympathy card at all and chose a difficult Creedence Clearwater Revival song, despite her physical state. The best performance of the season so far.
  2. Siobhan Magnus: Crystal opened the show and Siobhan closed it, in wonderful fashion. We never thought she'd be able to pull of an Aretha Franklin single, but this is one versatile singer.
  3. Michelle Delamor: She almost seems like a professional singer already, doesn't she? We hope Todrick Hall was watching because THIS is how you rearrange a song.
  4. Lilly Scott: Love her look. Love her confidence in who she is. Loved the courage it took to go with the Sam Cooke classic "A Change is Gonna Come."
  5. Katelyn Epperly: We weren't as blown away as the judges, but smart move to use the piano. It helped her stand out from her impressive competitors.
