In the world's ultimate talent search, where the eyes of a nation are upon the best undiscovered singers in the country, where the audience has the power to make or break you, and where a million-dollar recording contract is on the line, there is only one rule: If you can sing it, bring it.

Round of 25: Women
February 29

Last night, the men of American Idol - plus one - took the stage, and you took the phone lines. The result of your votes... tomorrow. Tonight, it's the ladies' turn. Welcome to "Boobs' Night Out".

A reminder of how it works. The 12 ladies will sing for a shot at becoming the first female since Jordin Sparks to take it all. Only the top five votegetters will automatically join the top five votegetters on the male side. Then tomorrow, each judge will get one pick to make a top 13.

Tonight the girls will sing a song of their choosing.

1. Chelsea Sorrell - "Cowboy Casanova" by Carrie Underwood - Not a good way to start the show. Karaoke lite performance with bad vocals and a little girl trying to be a big star doesn't work for me. And her big boobs are the best thing about this performance. OUT.

2. Erika Van Pelt - "What About Love" by Heart - Like this performance. Got a Cher/Rock Chick Voice. Not the best thing I have seen, but enough to move on. SAFE.

3. Jen Hirsh - "One and Only" by Adele - A very pure voice but her problem is that her voice is VANILLA. This song (which I have played over and over on my iPod) as sung by Adele, is full of fire and vigor. Her performance is too safe and passionless that I think she goes home. OUT.

4. Brielle Von Hugel - "(Sittin' On the) Dock on the Bay" by Otis Redding - HUGE PROBLEM here. I couldn't understand the first half of her performance. But the 2nd half was killer. I think it is NOT ENOUGH To get her through. OUT.

5. Hallie Day - "Feeling Good" by Nina Simone - And here we have the first woman who wants it. Great voice, great performance. WAY IN. SAFE.

6. Skylar Laine - "Stay With Me" by Faces - LOVED THIS. Passion, fire and a killer country rock voice. IN BIG TIME.

7. Baylie Brown - "Amazed" by Lonestar - Too Vanilla, too boring and going after Skylar Laine killed it killed her. OUT.

8. Hollie Cavanagh - "Reflection" by Christina Aguilera - Loved this performance. Beautiful VOICE. Very good phrasing and told a story in her vocals. IN BIG TIME.

9. Haley Johnsen - "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" by the Eurythmics - UGH. Very bad. Hated the vocals and she was just awful. OUT.

10. Shannon Magrane - "Go Light Your World" by Kathy Troccoli - This was as bad of a flame out as Eben yesterday. Little kid trying to be a big girl on a big stage. Vocals were not good. She goes home. OUT.

11. Jessica Sanchez - "Love You I Do" by Jennifer Hudson - I am not sure I loved this, but I liked her passion and attitude with the song. She does have some PIPES. IN.

12 Elise Testone - "One and Only" by Adele - MUCH better version of this. Bluesy and powerful and to get this with voice problems. IN.

OVERALL, as a group, the ladies have a far road to go if they are going to take on the men for the top spot in the end. But there are a few who can make a really good run at it. These people... won't.

OUT: Chelsea Sorrell, Jen Hirsh, Brielle Von Hugel, Baylie Brown, Haley Johnsen, Shannon Magrane.

Tomorrow night, no more second chances... well, one more second chance, BUT we will have 13 singers remaining on the road to Nokia Theatre.
