american idol sing off charlie askew aubrey cleland 'American Idol' tour sing off: Charlie Askew or Aubrey Cleland?“American Idol” did a Top 10 this year, which means the tour, which usually has 11 Idols on it, has room for one more. So, the show took the girl and guy who finished just outside the Top 10 last week had a sing-off.

The male singer in the sing-off is Charlie Askew, who chooses to sing an original song called “Sky Blue Diamond.” It’s admittedly way better than the last couple performances he did. However, Aubrey Cleland sings “Out Here On My Own” and she pretty much mops the floor with him.

But will it be enough? She’s a very talented singer — more talented than most of the men who made the Top 10, frankly. But the voters like cute guys. Will they put Charlie on the tour?

Did you vote? Who for?
