During the girls semi-final performances on American Idol, a few early front runners emerged.

The boys perform tonight and Thursday promises some drama, as 5 boys and 5 girls will be eliminated.

Here are my personal highlights from the last night's show.

Amber Holcomb is 18 years old and has great confidence and poise, especially tackling a Whitney Houston song.

Candace Glover did a fantastic job on a John Legend tune "Ordinary People"

And Angie Miller once again proved that she has her own original style, that should take her a long way in the competition.
