Top 12 Girls: Rachel Commits a Felony and Karen Brings the "Hero" to Clean It Up

Rachel Zevita, “Criminal”: 11
I’m sorry, Did they announce this as Broadway night and I missed it? What in the world was that? It took me half the song to figure out what she was singing. I thought it was a little criminal what she did to that song…

And kudos to Steven for calling a spade a spade and saying it was too Broadway. And I loved how he didn’t respond when she said Broadway was the one thing she had never sung…

Karen Rodriguez, “Hero”: 16
I’m a fan of Karen, but that one left me a little cold and I don’t know why. I think she waited a little long to hit the big notes. And Randy’s right, the Spanish was better than the English. It was nice to see a truly bilingual performance—the first one I can ever remember.
