What a night! Disco is alive and well… at least for those who did disco…
I think it’s kind of cheap that people get to toally remake the songs into a different style. Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of having a particular style every week? I don’t know… I could go either way on this.
Poor Lil… she just can’t get a leg up with these judges. I thought her performance was fun and fresh. It was the best we’ve seen her in WEEKS. The problem is, that is what we needed to see about 6 weeks ago. She is very lucky to have gotten this far, but I’m afraid (especially after seeing what everyone else had) that it’s the end of the line for her tonight!
Danny comes out and just does his thing. You know exactly what to expect from Danny. He doesn’t go too far off the script, and doesn’t really take much risk. He has an amazing voice, but he’s slipping into 4th or 5th place due to his lack of really wow-ing us for several weeks.
Kris is the opposite. Somehow Kris snuck his way into the top 36, top 12, and now top 7. He came in as a complete underdog, and now I see him in the top 3 for sure, and perhaps in the finale as well. He reminds me a lot of David Cook, just slowly upping his game week after week, hanging in there when he has to. Just like David, we didn’t know how much we liked him until after we saw a good deal of him.
Personally, I think Kris has it in him to edge Adam out of the final. More on that later.
First of all, I have to say, WHAT WAS SHE WEARING? I swear she had to be sewn into those clothes! And the jacket with the awkward tails in the back? I was NOT digging it, although it was cool to see a slightly different hairdo.
Her song was awesome. I thought the judges were dumb for panning the arrangement. I thought she brought intensity and determination to it, for sure! She knocked another one out of the park!
OK. Yes, it was good. It was great. Adam = Vocal Nirvana. He can do anything. But here’s an example of him being cute again… it’s Disco week, so he’s going to go a completely different direction. He just wants to be different, and he has been from the start. It’s his strategy. So far it’s served him well, but I’m getting a little tired of the cuteness of it all.
Well, I will say that this is one of his best efforts up until now, but I still don’t think it’s enough. I thought he sold it hard, but I still wasn’t buying.
I didn’t get it. His hair, his costume, his song. I didn’t get this one. I think it was a dismal failure on the level of Lil.
I think it’s clear who is the bottom 3: Anoop, Matt, and Lil.
My vote? Anoop and Lil go home.
We’re getting to the end now, and we have to be focused! What is the AI endgame going to be this year? What will be the surprises as America totally gets it wrong?
This is how I hope it will go down.
Top 3 will be Adam, Kris, and Allison. America will be so concerned with getting their favorite (Allison or Kris) to go up against Adam that they’ll both edge him out in volume of votes. Adam will be #3, and then Kris and Allison will duke it out for #1. That would be a GOOD finale. I’m afraid if it’s Adam vs anyone else, the whole thing will just turn into an Adam-love-fest, especially from Paula.
