American Idol 8 – Top 4 – Studio Recordings [download]

May 7, 2009

Adrenaline pumping Rock n Roll week produced some great performance and some average ones, but did the contestants pull it off in the studio versions?  I’m really psyched that the duets are also recorded along with the usual singles. I have two album art this week just to give a little variety. Pick your fav and you’re good to go!

- American Idol 8 – Top 4 Studio Recordings -
Rock n Roll Week  [Album Art #2]

Track List:

  1. Adam Lambert – “Whole Lotta Love”
  2. Allison Iraheta – “Cry Baby”
  3. Danny Gokey & Kris Allen – “Renegade”
  4. Kris Allen – “Come Together”
  5. Danny Gokey – “Dream On”
  6. Adam Lambert & Allison Iraheta – “Slow Ride”

Singles: Kris sounds a whole lot better in the studio, I really like his track this week. Adam and Allison have decent tracks too, but their live performances are much better. I hate to admit it, but I rather enjoy Danny’s too. The scream isn’t that bad on here.
Duets: For me, Danny & Kris’ duet in the studio pwned Adam & Allison’s. Danny & Kris sound amazing, especially when their voices blend together. Adam & Allison’s lack that punch you get from their live performances.

A tribute to the lovely Allison Iraheta.

Enjoy! Please leave comments!

American Idol 8 – Top 4 – Results [review]

May 7, 2009

Unfortunately, The Scream prevailed. Awww man.

One of the best of the night, Allison Iraheta was the lowest vote getter this week and was sent packing. What a shame, if she stayed another week she would’ve gotten her own hometown parade. The results were definitely not justified, The Scream should’ve went home after his horrible performance last night.

However, Allison being sent home wasn’t really surprising. What really shocked me was the fact that Kris Allen was safe, and was the first to be sent to the stools. I was literally gaping at my TV screen. It’s not that I don’t like the guy, on the other hand, he’s one of my favourites. But him being in the top 3 just shows how strong his fanbase is becoming. It’s growing larger. Watch your back, frontrunners. The underdog is coming to grab your title. Kris Allen FTW, yo.

And now to the not-so-serious stuff! Slash performed the group number with the contestants. Ummm, still a disaster. You can barely hear Kris over the drone, and I bet he can’t hear himself either. Slash’s hair is creepy. It’s eating his face up.

Paula Abdul graced the Idol stage! Paula was a star. Her choreography was amazing. Forget the lip-synching and the song that is totally out of date, Paula can move. Best non-Idol performance after Lady GaGa, in my opinion.

No Doubt was… No Doubt. Hehe. Usual crazy stuff from Gwen Stefani, I wasn’t a fan of the song and all that running around. But props to Gwen for not lip-synching though. *cough cough*

Chris Daughtry performed his new and totally HOT single “No Surprise”. It’s a really really really good song, it’s getting heavy spins on my music player now. Chris is one of those aritsts who sound better in the studio than playing live. His guitar was HUGE. Hehe. Chris was awarded a 5x Platinum plaque by Idol for his debut album. He’s a perfect example of a contestant  who didn’t win but still manages to be insanely successful. Well deserved!

Allison Iraheta, I’ll be expecting great things for you. As for Kris Allen, I think that it’s his last week next week. Top 2: Danny and Adam.

Have you made The Scream’s Scream your ringtone yet?
