Zoanette Johnson 'a mess,' Breanna Steer pretends to be Beyonce on 'American Idol'

Zoanette Johnson up first as "American Idol" cuts from 10 women to five and fans get to vote for the first time this season. She's doing a growly version of "What's Love Got To Do With It," with her usual energy -- but it seems forced, even angry. She's off key as well; not good.

Kez Ban, Breanna Steer, Angela Miller and Janelle Arthur pull a surprise on 'American Idol'

Kalli Therinale's group on “American Idol” changed their song just two hours ago, which cannot be good — they ask their mentors if that's a good idea, the answer is a resounding “No!“
