We are officially off and
running singing on American Idol Season 13.
The finalists took to the stage as a group for the first time on Wednesday and the results were decidedly mixed.
Things looked bleak throughout the opening hour, with a case of the nerves seemingly hitting a number of contestants.
But a handful in the back half showed promise and the judges continued to excel, giving us hope that all is not lost for this once-great competition.
Watch all 13 performances now and then cast your vote below:
