Disco week was a disaster. What an energy draining night. What is Idol thinking? Disco week? Seriously?
Lil Rounds – Easily the worst of the night. The original Lil is just gone. ‘Nuff said. The artistry bull was back too.
Kris Allen – Kris was brilliant, the best of the night in my opinion. He totally switched a disco dance song into something that suited him very well. The arrangements were great, so were the instruments he included into the performance. And his interpretation of the meaning of the song was hilarious. A song about a woman who has no money. Way to go, Captain Obvious! Hehe.
Danny Gokey – I had deja vu. It’s like watching “P.Y.T” all over again. Danny is so… standardized. Everything he does isn’t fresh anymore. The vocals were undeniably good, but everything was just so old. It was very forgettable.
Allison Iraheta – Nice outfit! When Allison appereared on the stairs and I was getting ready for an amazing performance. But she was kind of off this week, her rock vibe doesn’t incorporate with the disco theme very well. It was a bit awkward, but her vocals made up in the end.
Adam Lambert – Oh Adam. How I wish you’d get the first spot for once, it’s really unfair. Adam pulled it off again (duh) this week. It was like Mad World Part Deux. Adam should do more songs like this with his incredibly controlled vocals rather than screamy corny up-tempo songs. Oh yeah, he wins the most stylish award. Hands down. Very very classy.
Matt Giraud – Why oh why oh why… It’s frustrating that Matt didn’t nail it this week, when it was supposed to be his redeeming week to prove everyone wrong. Totally wrong song choice, no one should ever touch that song. That being said, I thought his vocals were amazing, the falsetto was brillaint and the dance moves were very smooth. It was definitely NOT desperate.
Anoop Desai – Failed pimped spot II. The beard needs to go, Anoop! You can keep the pink shirt though. Anoop started off steady, but when the tempo picked up everything crashed and burned. The end.
I’m having some issues with the judges’ comments. For some contestants, they congratulate them for showing variety, portraying different sides of them and singing different genres. While for others, the judges simply want them to perform certain genres which do not allow the contestants to expand, explore and show more variety, and that really frustrates me.
Tonight just proves everyone right that Lil, Anoop and Matt are definitely ones on the chopping block. I’m crossing my fingers and toes and hoping that Matt stays over Lil and Anoop. It’s about time that those two leaves, Matt deserves another week more than they do. But I’ve already admitted defeat, if Matt leaves, then I’m prepared for it. :(
Danny is losing steam. I’m still predicting a Adam, Allison and Kris final three.
My Top 3 2: Kris & Adam.
My Bottom 3: Everyone else.
Who Should Go Home: Lil & Anoop.
Who Will Go Home: Lil & Anoop/Matt
Whatever Randy is trying to prove, I still think that Season 7 is the best season ever. No contest. At all.
