    Ok, since there was one last week, I thought there might be a thread this week. Didn't see one so here goes my arm chair review and botton 3 positions.

    Allison Iraheta-From Armageddon-Don't Want To Miss A Thing
    I thought her bottom range was off and I didn't really care for it.

    Anoop Desai-Robib Hood-Prince of Thieves-Everything I Do, I Do For You.
    Vocals were spot on. I think he is way too preppy and it takes away from his stage presence.

    Adam Lambert-Easy Rider-Born To Be Wild
    He is definately a performer and knows how to work a crowd. He is expected to win, but I hope another Chris doesnt happen where one season, the rocker was expected to win and along with the nation, he was shocked to be voted out and wind up number 4 or 5.

    Matt Giraud-Don Juan Demarco-To Really Love A Woman
    I personally don't like his falsetto riffs and I think, even with his brand of soul, the song would have been blown out of the water if he had sung it straight, no chaser. On a more positive not, his pants show off a really great ass.

    Danny Gokey-Endless Love-Endless Love
    He is my kind of singer, a pure vocalist. Great performance, though he didn't take the Q man's advice.

    Kris Allen-Once-Once
    I thought Kris did an excellent job, pulled me right in, even though I had never heard of the movie, much less the song. I think he is the dark horse to win in this group.

    Lil Round-The ROse-The Rose
    Diction was off, which through the song off for me, middle section was great. I was with her at the top 12. Now, I don't expect her to make it.

    My Bottom 3:
    a) Anoop
    b) Matt
    c) Lil

    Who probably will be there:
    a) Matt
    b) Allison
    C) Lil

    Allison sang "I Don't Wanna Miss A Thing", by the way.

    I hate Danny - he's got to go!

    Anoop sounded ok.

    Adam is so far ahead of the rest of them right now. If he ever got voted off, he would be saved by the judges instantly I would think. Kris has peaked, unfortunately, and his cutesy smiles and crowd-wooing is getting tiresome.

    I thought Simon was harsh on Lil.

    I don't like Danny either. The widow sang "Endless Love". That would have been like the blind guy singing "Doctor My Eyes". Not cool.


    I actually don't really like anyone this season. Maybe Lil.

    The whole group pretty much sucked tonight.

    Worst: Adam, Allison, and Lil.

    Best: Kris, Matt, and Anoop.

    Bottom 3 will be:
    Allison
    Lil
    Anoop

    The whole show didn't really capture my attention either.

    Mediocre.

    Hmm my take is a bit different,
    Anoop was really good tonight,,, spot on as someone said and his preppy look is ok but I would like to me more style.

    Lil Rounds is the biggest disappointment.
    Her diction, her pitch and her rhythm were all off tonight BUT she did look good.

    Adam keeps coming up with original and exciting performances every week.
    He is clearly the front runner.

    Allison has been great in the past but was just so-so tonight... not bad, just not exciting.

    I hated how Matt tried to jazz up a great melodic song.

    Danny Gokey? GREAT voice but bad stage presence and doesn't "look" like a star,

    Kris Allen was pretty good but not exciting.

    My guess on who will go?

    Probably Lil or Matt

    I think Danny is quite handsome and he has great stage presence! He's definitely comfortable of stage

    Hmmm I disagree about Danny... maybe if he shaved and wore better clothes... but he is overweight and doesn't work the audience that well.
    He does, however, have a great voice!

    Well, I am beside myself with glee that I called it!! However, I did not see the save being used tonight, even thought Simon did hint at saving someone who would be shocked if they did save that person. Of course Ryan called Simon out on if he meant Lil (we all pretty much knew he meant Lil). I think Matt did much better tonight than last night and looking at Kara's, Paula's and Randy's reactions pretty much told me the save was a definate possibility. Now next week, two will go home and the save is no longer available. And next week is Disco week. I don't really see any of them automatically safe next week except Adam. If he can wow with a version of Ring of Fire, I have no doubt he will pull the disco off. I think Lil doesn't have a chance unless she picks something that shows off her up range chops-Donna Summer, Gloria Gaynor. Danny will do well.

    Speaking of Danny, I must go against TallGWMvballer assessment. The only one in the group who really passes the "STAR LOOK" litmus test is Kris Allen and looking back at the past Idol winners, did any of them really match up? Ruben Studdard? The Salt & Pepper Haired guy? And Jennifer Hudson who was told she was too fat to win (and didn't) but didnt she go all the way to the bank with an oscar and a grammy? Wow!

    By the way, was it just me or did Miley Cyrus come across as forgetting some of her own lyrics at the very beginning of the song? I don't know.

    I didn't understand a word Miley Cyrus sang. How sad that she's singing on a singing competition show and isn't as good as the least of the performers.

    Erik Taureun, YES congrats! you DID call it.

    As for Danny, you are right but the other people you mentioned had much more stage presence and charisma than Danny.


    I am with you about Disco night... Lil's only shot is to do a very big song meaning one with a huge range that she can do so well.

    I don't think the others will do well.... expect a great show from Adam.

    Miley Cyrus? she was horrible! I agree worse than all of the Idol contestants.
