haeley vaughn 320 'American Idol' quick and dirty: Haeley Vaughn can't 'Climb'It is time for Haeley Vaughn to go home, but Lilly Scott, Crystal Bowersox, Katelyn Epperly and Siobhan Magnus all really stood out amongst the Top 10 “American Idol” women.

This is Zap2it’s new quick ‘n dirty “American Idol” recap. Check out the full recap here.

The Highlights: Crystal Bowersox, Lilly Scott, Katelyn Epperly and Siobhan Magnus
These four women killed it. They were all absolutely mind-blowing and in totally different ways. Crystal and Lilly may both have the “busker” (read: homeless person) vibe going, but their tone and style is completely different. All four were excellent. Siobhan was actually a little breath-taking, as in she literally stole my breath at one point.

The Lowlights: Haeley Vaughn
Oh, Haeley. Wanting with all your might to be country-pop will not make it so. “The Climb” is way too big for you. You seem like a sweet girl and the makeover has actually caused me to rescind my former thoughts about your personal style. But you aren’t good enough to play with the big girls.

The Lights: Katie Stevens
and Lacey Brown
They both improved remarkably. Katie’s on-stage age can now be processed as under 30, while Lacey managed to be upbeat and still let her interesting tone shine through.
