No. 8 (Girls): Kady Malloy's "Magic Man" (and staircase entrance) failed to impress last week: she'll have to step it up to stay in the running.
2 of 16 Michael Becker/Fox


No. 8 (Guys): Though the judges gave him glowing reviews for his "I Believe to My Soul," Chikezie fell one spot in our Power Rankings this week.
3 of 16 Fox


No. 7 (Girls): Amanda Overmyer's hair was the most memorable thing about her "Carry on Wayward Son." The rock-and-roll nurse has to show some major improvement to avoid being discharged soon.

No. 7 (Guys): Of the guys, Danny Noriega fell the furthest this week, dropping three spots in our Power Rankings. Could his attitude toward the judges be hurting his chances
5 of 16 Fox


No. 6 (Girls): Asia'h Epperson tackled a big song this week in "All by Myself," and it tackled her back; she had a hard time with the chorus and should focus on song selection in the future.

No. 6 (Guys): Luke Perry/Orlando Bloom look-alike Luke Menard gave a poppy performance of Queen's "Killer Queen" for '70s week.
7 of 16 Fox


No. 5 (Girls): Kristy Lee Cook had the biggest tumble in our Power Rankings among the girls, dropping three spaces. The horse trainer and tomboy seems to be just coasting for now.

No. 5 (Guys): Rocker David Cook gave a rousing rendition of "All Right Now" last week, and his revelation that he's a "word nerd" who enjoys crossword puzzles endeared him
9 of 16 Fox


No. 4 (Girls): Syesha Mercado received criticism from the judges for the gender-flopped version of "Me and Mrs. Jones" she performed, but her vocal skill and charming personality have kept her in the running.

No. 4 (Guys): The biggest rising star among the guys, David Hernandez climbed four spaces in our Power Rankings since last week, thanks to his sizzling performance of "Papa Was a Rollin' Stone."

No. 3 (Girls): Dropping two spots since last week, petite vocal powerhouse Ramiele Malubay - who sang a disco classic for '70s week - may be proving that her strength is ballads rather than upbeat numbers.

No. 3 (Guys): Shy-guy heartthrob Jason Castro chose to sing with his guitar again last week, but his "I Just Want to Be Your Everything" was hardly music to the judges' ears (Simon called it "schmaltzy").
13 of 16 Fox


No. 2 (Girls): Carly Smithson, who moved up four spots in our Power Rankings, is proving herself to be the girl to beat; she showed serious Heart with her rendition of "Crazy on You."
14 of 16 Michael Becker/Fox


No. 2 (Guys): Michael Johns gave what Simon called his worst performance on "Go Your Own Way." His good looks and charisma can carry him far, but will he be able to compete with the No. 1 guy
15 of 16 Fox


No. 1 (Girls): By channeling Carly Simon, Brooke White climbed four spots with her "You're So Vain." Simon was pretty sure the song was about him, and who are we to argue

No. 1 (Guys): With a whopping 63.6 percent of the guys' Power Rankings votes, 17-year-old sweetie pie David Archuleta is definitely the early favorite. His "Imagine" even made Paula cry.
