American Idol – Songs From The Movies
Considering the Idol’s had a vast range of songs to choose from I found tonight’s episode lacking in any highly memorable moments.
Yes Adam Lambert’s performance was the highlight, and it was a pity he did not break out the glitter lycra for his glam rock rendition of Born To Be Wild. But as Simon alluded it was a bit musical theatreish.
Danny Gokey the other front runner has decided (or it has been decided for him) that he needs to slick up his image, and the contacts are in and the glasses are gone. Personally he still does nothing for him. His pick of Endless Love was a smart song choice as there was no way the judges could give him a bollocking as he was obviously getting his inspiration from his dead wife.
Lil Rounds version of The Rose was abysmal. I really don’t see a recording contract for her post Idol. She has done not one good song since she made top 12, and I am surprised she is still here.
Alison Irahae rendition of Aerosmith’s Don’t Want To Miss A Thing was good but not one of my favourite performances of hers. I notice Simon Cowell was starting to pimp her as a potential winner of the show. I hope this does not mean she will get voted out tomorrow night.
Kris Allen was ordinary, and I get the feeling he may have peaked two weeks ago and it may all be downhill from here.
And lastly I think Anoop and Matt Giraud time is limited unless they can pull something sensational out of the performance repetoire next week.
Either Anoop or Lil to be eliminated.
The other sheer lunacy of the show was two judges only talking to each song because of time reasons. It indicates to me the three judge format does not work.
