– American Idol 8 – Top 7 Studio Recordings –
Songs From Movies – Quentin Tarantino Week

Track List:

  1. Allison Iraheta – “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing”
  2. Anoop Desai – “Everything I Do (I Do It For You)”
  3. Adam Lambert – “Born To Be Wild”
  4. Matt Giraud – “Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman”
  5. Danny Gokey – “Endless Love”
  6. Kris Allen – “Falling Slowly”
  7. Lil Rounds – “The Rose”

My personal views: I really hate “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing”; it’s been covered so many times.Β  However, Allison managed to make it fresh, so kudos on that. Anoop’s track sounds really good, it’s smooth and nice. Matt’s live performance did not do him justice at all, his studio version is superb.Β  I love Kris’, it’s one of the best this week. Lil always manages to sound better in the studio, if she can project the same vibe onstage, she’ll be a frontrunner by now. Not a fan of Danny and Adam’s tracks. Danny’s vocals sound very weak, and Adam, same ol’.

A tribute to the Simon Cowell for delivering the good news. PREACH, Cowell.

Enjoy! Please leave comments!



  1. Thanks so much again, both for the studio cuts and checking in on my blog. Cheers!

  2. Oh, at last! Thanks! ^o^

    • Sorry they can’t be posted any earlier, cause of the timezone difference, the show gets broadcasted much later here. Youre welcome!

      • Nah, I don’t mind waiting. It’s worth it. *salutes*

  3. We all love Matt. Haha.


    And the picture is really cool. Loving Matt’s pose! πŸ˜€

    Thanks for the studio versions once again!

    Adam rocks. :))
    Go Matt!!
    Kris is awesome.

  5. So nice… Matt was saved yay!

  6. yay! i’ve been waiting for these songs.. thanks

    and by the way.. i love it that the save was used on matt..

    i really really thought that it was going to be used on adam/danny because from the very start i think the save thingy was BIASED..

  7. Matt and Lil are good with the studio performances but they have problems whit the live performances.

    I hate the fact that Allison choos “I don’t want to miss a thing”. That song is scratched since it was created. Cook did it better last year.

    I like Danny’s and Adam’s tracks .w.


  8. Thank you for uploading so fast =D

  9. OMG I so agree with all your insight!!!! We shared the exacty same thoughts. SERIOUSLY!! HAHAH..thanks so much for posting. πŸ˜€

  10. well well i have to say i’ve been watching your blog since the beginning but always so lazy to reply πŸ˜› sorry sorry πŸ˜›

    anyway it’s Thurs night showing what was there on Weds night in USA, yep it’s the UK πŸ˜›

    Will be watching it in 20 mins, but thanks for the tracks ❀ Im really really glad Matt was saved as well ….

    • btw i seriously dont know what happened but the “Everything i do” MF link seems not to be working …

      • Hmmm, try to leave the page and come back after a while. It happens sometimes. Try refreshing the page too. Its probably the server problems. Hope it works soon!

  11. The studio version usually sounds better than live, but not this week. I don’t like the studio version for any of them. Is it just me???

  12. thx 4 d upload. but i cant download the rose… it just keep loading but no download.

    • Sometimes that happens. the site will lag when you download in bulk, so its better to take it slow and download a couple at a time to avoid that. Hope it works! πŸ™‚

      • problem solved.. thx again..

  13. thanks!

  14. is the matt link okay? it doesn’t work here.

    and again: I’M VERRRRY SOORRRY Raph and to the other people i keep giving buzz kills and harsh comments on their comments.

    good boy now.



    • Try refreshing the page or leave it for a few minutes then visit it again. It happens.

  15. thank you for the music!
    definitely digging it!

  16. Can I just throw it out there that there is a huge Matt bias on this blog? Be a little bit more impartial when you’re reviewing the songs. πŸ˜€

    That said, let’s be real and notice that a large number of people watch this season of American Idol to see Adam perform. He may dance, sing the high notes, and give a performance every time, but come on. That’s the point, to perform! Who wants to go to a concert where the singer can’t excite the crowd? Each night, we all know he’s going to do those things and wait to see what he can pull off.

    Thanks for the studio recordings!
