American Idol 7 – Top 7 – Studio Recordings [download]

April 17, 2008

The Idols tackle Mariah Carey’s huge hits, and it was sure a week full of emotions.

– American Idol 7 – Top 7 Studio Recordings –

Mariah Carey Week

Track List:

  1. David Archuleta – “When You Believe”
  2. Carly Smithson – “Without You”
  3. Syesha Mercado – “Vanishing”
  4. Brooke White – “Hero”
  5. Kristy Lee Cook – “Forever”
  6. David Cook – “Always Be My Baby”
  7. Jason Castro – “I Don’t Wanna Cry”

Hands down, David Cook owns them all. His track is amazing. It’s sales are huge on iTunes, even beating “Billie Jean”.

I also love David Archuleta’s. It’s so much better than the live version. Carly’s isn’t much different than her rendition on stage, it’s okay, though you have to praise her for the vocals.

Brooke’s is nice and soothing. I like. Kristy switched hers to a country song again, but she pulled it off. Jason’s nice too, easy on the ears, although his constant low notes might not be as strong as the others.

Syesha’s track is my least favourite. I don’t know why she doesn’t appeal as much as she is live.

What do you think? Leave comments!



  1. Thanks!

    David Archuleta’s studio version is so amazing<3
    And David Cook did a pretty good job either. I actually like his studio better than the performance.
    The rest of them are ok.

  10. thank you! can say nothing more, but thank you so much!

  11. Thank you! I’ve downloaded all but Kristy’s, and my favs are as usual Jason and David A’s tracks. I love their vocies.

    Doesn’t matter what song they do it seems, becauase I can’t stop loving their voices. It has to be a really bad song for me not to like their studiorecordings.

  12. OMG!!!!!!!!!! DAVID COOK IS SO DAMN GOOD!!!!! HE ROCKS! He is like the second version of Chris Daughtry! Both my fav. Like Randy said that song (Always Be My Baby) would have topped the billboards if it was his SINGLE. ROCK ON DAVID. May his future album has the same faith like Daughtry! Highest number of album sold FOR THE YR 2007! πŸ™‚
