The Top 7 contestants were able to take their pick from the Best Songs of the Cinema with the help of the guest mentor, Quentin Tarantino. There were some of my fav songs represented and some songs I was just like huh?? It was a bit strange and slightly disappointing to have the new 2 judge team giving their critiques tonite. I hope this won't be the norm from here on out. Hmm...
Allison Iraheta - I Don't Want to Miss a Thing ~ LOVE.LOVE.LOVE. this song, always have...always will. Ahem. Ok, so she looked great tonite and she sounded even better! I believed this performance completely and it was much more her 16 yr old level than last week. The rugged vocals were off the hook! Nice girl.
Anoop Desai - Every I Do I Do it for You ~ I totally adore this song too!! Ok, I cannot get over the schoolboy outfit he had on tonite. Oi. But sweet sweet vocals, I loved the velvet sound of his performance. One of his best.
Adam Lambert - Born to be Wild ~ Were those patent leather chucks he had on?? And where can I get me some of them...in red. So I see he's back to the makeup bit...he can leave that alone in my opinion. BUT this performance was like a flipping rock concert! HOLYMOLY people. While this wasn't one of my fav of his performances, it was still off the hook. He has long since left the league of amateurs my friends.
Matt Giraud - Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman ~ He looked great tonite, props to whoever finally fixed that boy's hair! Slick. There were some wicked sweet parts and some wicked parts of this performance tonite. It was overall disappointing because I love this guy and his incredible potential. Still a fan.
Danny Gokey - Endless Love ~ ILOVETHISGUY. Interesting without the matching glasses tonite. Wow! HOLYHARP. Slammin' outfit. Ok, enough already. There were tears in my eyes by the time he finished. Simple, pure and touching performance. Classic. VOTED. like mad.
Kris Allen - Falling Slowly ~ Never heard of this song in my life. But whatev. It was tender and sizzlin'....brilliant baby. Every week he raises the bar for himself. Well done.
Lil Rounds - The Rose ~ I donotnotnot like this song. But she looked really nice, wish I could wear my hair tenmillion different ways like she can. I really actually liked the beginning R & B part of the song but hated the Gospel ending. I'm just not sure what the deal is here. Sorry.
Ok, by far the best of the night...Danny and Adam.
Who should go?? Um, I gotta say Lil. Again.
Let me know what you're thinking!! :)
