American Idol 8 – Top 4 [review]

May 6, 2009

Get your popcorn ready, guys. Wait, leave the popcorn and rock your air guitar! It’s Rock n Roll Week!

I thought we’d be up for an awesome show, cause it’s rock week. Duh.  Unfortunately, Rock Week + Slash + Top 4 = disaster. What’s with the broken Idol tower and the shattering glass and all the mishap? Probably because Matt Giraud was voted off last week. Yeah, that’s it, he came back to haunt the show. BOO! Nah, kidding. It was probably the loud amps or something that smashed the glass. Hehe. Anyway, back to the contestants!

Adam Lambert – OMG! How shocking! Adam’s in the bottom 3 last week!! Yeah, we’re over that already. But wait! OMG! How surprising! Adam is performing FIRST! That’s a FIRST! *flailing* Adam set the bar so high that no one could even touch it tonight. No surprises on THAT. He was in the zone, very comfortable on stage. I liked his interaction with the band. Pardon me for saying this though, he looked so… drag. o.O OMG.

Allison Iraheta – I can’t get the pigtails out of my mind. Allison looked soooo adorable in pigtails. She should wear it more often. Her look was great, I loved the purple highlights! I thought Allison performed amazingly, the judges didn’t felt it though. Whatevs. The Allison vs Simon showdown was very entertaining. And THIS, Lil Rounds, is how you battle with Simon and still be able to win people’s hearts over.

Kris Allen & Danny Gokey – What an unlikely pairing. They looked as though they wanted to chew each other’s heads off. Like Kara said, they sounded great together, it was very harmonious. But when they sang individually, it was a trainwreck. Danny totally outsang Kris. However, Kris totally outperformed Danny. Danny just stood there holding the mic stand. At least Kris bobbled around the stage.

Kris Allen – When Kris announced that he’s singing “Come Together”, my mouth went into an “O”. Could he pull it off? I thought he did a decent job, it was very Kris Allen-ish. Way to go. Kris handles an acoustic guitar better. He should never touch an electric one ever again. Kris’ vocals were very weak tonight. Like he said last week, his vocals aren’t as great as the rest of the top 5. But, his charisma on stage makes up for it. One more thing, is it just me, or did Kris looked incredibly PISSED tonight? Hmmm.

Danny Gokey – “Dream On”? What were you thinking, Danny? The judges wanted to cover up his horrible performance by stamping him an A+ for trying. Like, what? The front part of his performance was okay, but just when you thought it wouldn’t get any worse, he screamed. Yes, he screamed. He and Adam should go into a screaming competition. I think Danny will win, hands down.  Hehe. That last high note he did was painful. The following picture probably sums up Danny’s performance: 1. Danny’s scream. 2. We’re covering our ears. Hear no evil.


Adam Lambert & Allison Iraheta – What much can anyone say? Best performance of the night. Bow down to the “God” and “Goddess” of Rock. ‘Nuff said.


My Top 2: Adam & Allison.
My Bottom 2: Kris & Danny.
Who Should Go Home: Danny.
Who Will Go Home: Kris.

It’s everyone’s game right now, the top 4 are really strong. Adam and Danny won’t go home because of their massive fanbases. Allison might land in the bottom 2, albeit giving solid performances. Kris I think, is a lock in the bottom 2. He might go home, but I think Allison might be in trouble as well.

Then again, we’re all still waiting for that shocker boot. *grins*
