Last Night's Idol cont.
Well, I watched about half of last nights show so far... Adam was by far the best out of anyone last night. Here's the post I promised you Note, I didn't write it so thanks Elaina for helping me out!
But first, here's the chart of who we think will be in the bottom 3!
All entrants think that either Megan or Michael are going home this week. I also offered a bonus point for this week, but the point will not be awarded until after the competition hits the top 3... Here's THAT chart! I gotta say, results are shocking!
EVERYONE picked the same top 3! Wow!
The top 10 American Idols performed Wednesday night to see if they could get one step closer to becoming the next Idol.
The theme for the night was Motown music with Smokey Robinson as the mentor.
Matt Giraud was up first performing “Let’s Get It On” by Marvin Gaye
and Smokey said that Matt’s performance “would have floored him
[Gaye].” It was good because Matt finally stepped away from the piano
and showed more of a stage presence. Kara said, “there’s a lot of girls
out there saying ‘yeah let’s get it on.’” Enough said.
Kris Allen was next up singing “How Sweet It Is” by Marvin Gaye and
Smokey said that Matt “blew it away.” He did a great job and put a very
different sound on the song. Randy said that Kris has “hit his zone”
but Simon said that he basically wanted Kris to be a little more
conceited and have a "swagger."
Scott MacIntyre stuck with the piano and sang “You Can’t Hurry Love” by
The Supremes. Smokey said that he enjoys Scott’s performances always
and he made the song contemporary. I’m not sure about the pink jeans he
was wearing; however the performance was fun and entertaining but maybe
not enough to take him to the top 9. Paula, after telling Scott to
leave the piano behind the week before, said that although he didn’t
give up the piano he brought a new level to it this week.
Unfortunately, Simon said that besides the piano playing, “it was a bit
Paula also brought crayons and coloring books for Simon because he gets bored so easily.
Megan Joy Corkery sang “For Once In My Life” by Stevie Wonder and
Smokey liked how different and original her performance was. She did a
good job of working the whole stage and looked beautiful but her jazzy
sound is getting a little old. Randy said the “song was a train wreck.”
The other judges also didn’t like the performance.
Anoop Desai was next up singing “Oh Baby, Baby” by Smokey Robison and
The Miracles and Smokey said he blew him away. It was a little boring
but he has an amazing voice. Simon said that Anoop “looked half asleep.”
Michael Sarver sang “Ain’t Too Proud Beg” by The Temptations and Smokey
said he needed to be a little less smooth and little more abrasive
about it. It was a very different performance for Michael and he really
sang it to its fullest. Paula said it was “a little old Las Vegas” and
Simon really ripped into him, saying it was bad song choice.
Lil’ Rounds was next on stage singing “Heat Wave” by Martha Reeves
& The Vandellas and her and Smokey connected over how far Motown
has come and Lil’ said she wanted to do her performance for them. Not
surprisingly, Lil’ killed it and looked gorgeous. Randy like the end
but felt like the beginning of her performance was “torture” but Paula
thought it was “fresh” and “classic.”
Adam Lambert sang “Tracks of My Tears” by Smokey Robinson and Smokey
liked how he kept it slow and soft. He had a very different look with
slicked back hair and suit keeping in tempo with his performance.
Smokey Robinson gave Adam a standing ovation and Kara said she had to
stand because it was “one of the best performances of the night” but
Simon said “it was THE best.”
Danny Gokey was next up singing “Get Ready” by The Temptations.
It was a little cheesy but his voice sounded good as always. Paula said
he always gives a “first class performance” but Simon said “it was
clumsy and amateurish.”
Allison Iraheta sang “Papa Was a Rolling Stone” by The
Temptations and Smokey said she sang it her own way and that was a good
thing. It was amazing especially for a 16-year-old and the whole
audience was on their feet. Kara said “that was from God!” while Simon
proceeded to draw a sharpie mustache on Paula.
