American Idol Top 9

It was Idols Choose Their Own Song from the Top Downloads? Is that right? Ok, whatev. I think that is what all that was...interesting. Here we go...

Anoop Desai - Gotta Hold On Me/Crampin' My Style...sumin' sumin' by Usher? Eh. Not a fan of this performance. I couldn't understand the lyrics at several points and it was just too low in parts or too flat or just weird. I don't know. I just can't watch this guy. Sorry.

Megan Joy Corkrey - Turn Down Your Lights Down Low. Uh huh. Well, it was a tad better than last week, maybe? I'm being nice. Ok. It was just strange, nasal at times...teeny bit whiney. She has such a unique sweet spot with her vocals that if she doesn't choose a song in that sweet spot she sounds just awful. And babe, don't be too cocky...take the pros advice.

Danny Gokey - What Hurts the Most. GO GO GOKEY!!!! Loved it. We say, Danny BrInG iT and da Boy BROUGHT IT!!! What?!!! I loved it. Felt it. Got chills with it. Niiice baby. VOTED.

Allison Iraheta - Don’t Speak. You gotta admit, the girl belongs up there on that stage. She's a natural and will do well no matter when her Idol journey ends. She's SIXTEEN!! I really liked her take on this song...fab intro with the guitar!

Scott MacIntyre - I Love You Just the Way You Are. I thought tonite's performance was way better than last week's. He looked nice too!

Matt Giraud - You Found Me. I agreed and disagreed with the judges on Matt tonite. I agreed in that this song was in his sweetest range. BUT...but I actually really enjoyed it! I loved the bit of edge to his voice and the whole piano in the crowd bit. He threw in some of his wowzer falsetto and yay...I'm STILL a fan, baby! VOTED. totally did not deserve to be in the bottom 3 last week. what??

Lil Rounds - I Surrender. OI with the dress, girlfriend. Oi. Just oi. This did not impress me at all tonite. Just boring. I wasn't it to be over. And btw, what up with her changing her look every week?? Girl, be who you are and stick with it.

----Can I just add...the most endearing part of the show, when Lil's little girl walks up to Randy and gives him a giant bear hug??! Come on, don't tell me you didn't feel a tear in your eye!----

Adam Lambert - Play That Funky Music. Whoa, this was pretty unexpectedly fun to watch! I mean, who saw THAT comin??! He worked it out...though a tad screamy. Not as good as last week but fab and funky. He showed us a truly unique version of that song and no whack makeup! VOTED.

Kris Allen - Ain’t No Sunshine. MOLTEN HOT LAVA??!!!! Wow, loved him at the piano...sweet Kris-spin to the song. FAB. He keeps raising the bar every week...slammin vocals. Well done. VOTED.

Ok, so my favs tonite were Danny of course and Kris...

Who should go home...I'm thinkin' either Lil or Megan.

Oh, and HI...David Cook is gonna be on tomorrow y'all...yay, he was my pick last year!!!! :D

Hi Kate! Thanks for stopping by my blog. As I've browsed around yours, I'm a little sad that we're not next door neighbors, I think we'd be besties... :)

I wish my house wasn't such a mess, or I'd sit here reading all day. I can't afford to pay anyone to clean it for me, so - I must tear myself away... boo.

Oh - my daughter's name is Chloe, too! See?

Another Great Post!
PLEASE - fingers crossed that Megan goes home. Can't wait to see Cookie tonight!

OOOOOOOH! Thanks for the DC heads up. We've not really gotten into the season this year, with Li'l Empress added to the bedtime mix. We will definitely watch tonite. Definitely.
MMmmmmmm love my DC.

I had to Tivo this episode last night. At first, I wasn't going to read your blog until tomorrow after I viewed it. But I couldn't help myself. I'm glad that you thought Danny did well. I really, really like him. Although Adam is a bit different, I think he's very talented. I think it will end up being between these two guys. And David Cook was my clear favorite from last season too.

I just finished watching my Tivo'd episode of American Idol. But I wanted to add that I loved Kris' performance. I was so pleased that he did well. I still go with Danny and Adam and now ...Kris!
