The American Idol Top 10 gave it their all Wednesday with "Songs of the Idols," i.e. tracks used on the show by previous contestants or later released by winners.

Basically, hooray for Kelly Clarkson tributes!

It’s hard to handicap a clear favorite right now, but as Randy Jackson put it, Angie Miller, Candice Glover, and Kree Harrison look like they’re in it to win it.

Take a look at those strong efforts below:

Angie Miller - I Surrender (American Idol Top 10)
Candice Glover - I Who Have Nothing (American Idol Top 10)
Candice Glover - I Who Have Nothing (American Idol Top 10)

The vocals and performances of the above three seemed to put them in the top tier last night, though there are many weeks (and voter surprises) to come.

As for the best – and worst – of the rest? Read on

 

We’d rank Amber Holcomb, Burnell Taylor and Janelle Arthur in the middle tier. Nothing too groundbreaking last night, but probably good enough to stay put.

Here are the three of them doing their thing:

Candice Glover - I Who Have Nothing (American Idol Top 10)

In the bottom tier we’ve got Lazaro Arbos, Curtis Finch, Jr., Paul Jolley, and Devin Velez. Just not seeing all that much from any of them right now.
