American Idol top 7 again

It was Disco night y'all and I was sitting back waiting to be transported to the days of bell bottoms, long hair and lots o'groovin...I was a tad bit disappointed with some of the performances but the others were EX.CELL.ENT. Here we go...

Lil Rounds - “I’m Every Woman” - Oh dear. I'm not really sure what more unique critiques I can make on this girl. Um, the unitard is so out!! Please and Thank You. It was a kinda sorta fun performance I guess. It's just time for her to depart. I'm sorry.

Kris Allen - “She Works Hard For The Money” - Can I get a holla?!!! What Is Up...this was HOTNESS tonite up in heyah y'all. I loved loved the island jazzy groove sound of this song! Wow, this was supremely original and all KRIS. Niiiice. It vaguely reminded me of another fav who performed every song with his own incredible spin on it. D.C. anyone?! :) VOTED.

Danny Gokey - “September” - All I can say is EN.ER.GY. people!! Danny was popping off that stage...I thoroughly enjoy whatever this guy belts out. I seriously get a big goofy grin on my face from start to finish. I loved it, the boy can sang. I'm just sayin. VOTED.

Allison Iraheta - “Hot Stuff” - Ok, WHAT is UP with the black unitards tonite??!! Good grief, we said DISCO not the 80's!!!!!!!!! That outfit was hideous, come on you know it's true. Yikes girl. I was not really a big fan of this performance. I typically love Allison but tonite didn't thrill me for some reason. It seemed kinda screamy but the judges loved it so maybe it's just me? Nah. ;)

Adam Lambert - “If I Can’t Have You” - OhMyWord. First of all, sick suit dude...you will whip that out again if you're smart. Wow, this performance gave me chills....chills! It was ridiculous and intense and he def connected with this one...I could feel the flippin heat through the tv for pity sake. HOTHOTHOT.

**Quote O'the Night by Ryan Seacrest: "A Pool of Abdul". Priceless.**

Matt Giraud - “Stayin’ Alive” - Aww, the guy who got saved. I'm glad he got saved and I'm not ashamed to say it. He def deserves to be there longer than Lil for sure. I really like the way he changed up the arrangement on this song...the cool jazz vibe. It wasn't incredible but it was good and I enjoyed it. So there.

Anoop Desai - “Dim All The Lights” - I really really really disliked the weird arrangement of this song. The weird techno beat with the slow tempo music.....what??!!! Again, I cannot watch this guy perform. While he sounded really great tonite, I just....I just. Ug. Lose the mustache buddy. I'm sorry.

Ok, who should go?? Let's all say this together....LIL. Lil. Lil.....it's time.

BEST of the night? Hmm....goes to Kris and Adam......but I've got mad love for Danny as always.

Yep, I'm thinking Lil is outta here. And I wish we could vote of a judge...cause Paula is getting cRaZy again.

And Danny will continue to get my vote.

I have to say that Lil needs to go! She just hasn't proven that she belongs. Not that I could sing but I guess as an armchair critic, it's easy to say. Lol.

Kris did great; he's very cute! I wonder how his bride is handling all of the attention he's getting.

Danny is one of my favorites; just love him. He did great; his voice was excellent.

I thought Allison's voice was terrific tonight. She's a little rocker. She reminds me of Pat Benatar. (BTW, did I tell you that I went to high school with Pat Benatar on Long Island? I introduced her to Dennis Benatar on one of our class trips to NYC. They're divorced and she's remarried) Sorry I went off on a tangent there but Allison does remind me of Pat's voice.

Now for Adam ...he's going to win this season! I have no doubt; he's really talented. I really liked this performance.

I'm so glad you do this each week. My hubby and I both enjoy watching the show and it's fun to read what other people think.

I was thinking of Cookie when Kris started singing it like that. Totally.

Only problem is that TWO will go - so Lil and who else? I guess you're not a fan of Anoop? i think it's a tossup between anoop and matt.

Well, I missed most of it. I did catch Adam's song. Nicely done, but he still creeps me out. Not really crazy about his style. I've always liked Matt and Kris and now I'm REALLY sorry I missed their performances. I did get to hear the judges applaud Matt. It's so hard to watch 8 p.m. shows with 5 kids. Even WITH a DVR! :)

I love Adam. I know a lot of peeps think he's strange, but I can't help it. Btw, I added your button to my blog today.
