The morning after the top 12 women performed on "American Idol," the most buzzed-about performance online seems to be Siobhan Magnus' take on Chris Isaak's "Wicked Game."
Our thoughts: The performance was unique and vocally impressive, but a little too dark for a night when it's critical to impress a voting audience. Sioban will likely be safe, though.
The ninth season of "American Idol" has repeatedly been touted as the year of the women. Maybe unusually high expectations made Tuesday's show -- which featured this season's top 12 females -- seem incredibly underwhelming.
The majority of contestants opted for drab, depressing tunes that didn't do much to bolster their fan bases. Others fell into the trap of perhaps the worst "Idol" decision in history -- copying a tune made famous by a female diva like Leona Lewis or Alicia Keys.

The exception to two hours of mediocrity? Sandwich maker Lilly Scott, who served up a delicious, contemporary take on The Beatles' "Fixing a Hole." It was fun, Feist-like and engaging. Sure, we'll take chips with that.
Tonight, the top 12 men perform 8-10 p.m. on Fox. Thursday, four contestants will be eliminated: two men, two women.
