Performance Night. They got to pick the song of their choice. Surprisingly, three chose old songs. The rest chose current hits.
One thing’s for sure, a lot of people have called American Idol a lame show, but this season cannot be accused of that. They got rid of the flakes right away, kicked out the mediocre singers early. And the result is an amazing group.
It’s pretty obvious to me who the top 4 are now. Danny, Adam, Kris and Lil. Well, wait…damn I forgot Allison. And Scott and Matt could do it too. Geez.
Yeah, it’s a tough call this year. But I think the top 5 are the first 5 I listed. The others have had a few missteps.
I expect Megan and Matt to be in the bottom two tomorrow. Matt is extremely good, but for some reason he was almost cut last week even though the judges loved him. This week they were less kind even though I thought he was good. Megan is good, but compared to the others, she is just average. But she didn’t even end up in the bottom three last week after being panned, so who knows.
Anoop did an Usher song well, but the judges were not wowed. So he will probably be in the bottom three also. The rest were great to fantastic.
Scott did Billy Joel proud. Lil did Celine Dion proud. Kris did an amazing cover of Bill Withers Ain’t No Sunshine. Really fantastic.
That leaves Danny who blew away What Hurts the Most, Adam who did a rock screamer version of Play That Funky Music that was fresh and finally, Allison did a really nice No Doubt cover.
It’s good that they have the save option this season because they’re going to need it. A lot of really amazing talent.
