American Idol, Top 13 Performances

Overall, a night of solid performances, with only one or two that were rather poor. The theme of the night was the "Music of Michael Jackson". I was going to ask how much MJ paid for this promotion, but I doubt he could afford the price. The contestants entered from alternating staircases, which led to a nauseating back and forth with the camera. Try something else, Fox. And I have to ask, did Paula strangle a bird with the strap of her dress?
