American Idol: Top 3
Okay, American Idol, top three, without Alison. :( Let's go.
Danny Gokey. "Dance Little Sister." Danny has never sounded more like Michael McDonald than he does on this song. Anyone who consistently reads this blog (hi Wilder) knows that I don't think this is a good thing.
Kris Allen. "Apologize." I am not a fan of this song, but Kris wasn't as good as the original. The high notes seemed to high. I do hope he advances instead of Danny.
Adam Lambert. "One." There is no question that Adam has a great voice, but I just didn't like that interpretation of the song.
Danny Gokey. "You Are So Beautiful." This song always makes me think of "Three's Company." I think there was an episode where Larry sang it to some woman he met at the Regal Beagle (maybe Greedy Gretchen?). Anyway, I don't remember the episode all that well, but I do associate the song with the show. As for Danny, I thought he sang it well, but it was really boring. Bleh. I don't get the intense amount of love from the judges.
Kris Allen. "Heartless." I don't know this song (does that make me uncool?). But I liked Kris' rendition. Gobo thought the high note was off, but I thought it sounded like it was probably right.
Adam Lambert. "Cryin'." I absolutely loathe the backup singer on the song--she's taking a ton away from Adam's performance, and their voices do not work well together. The arrangement also sucks--they cut and paste so many portions of the song together that it doesn't work cohesively at all. I thought Adam sounded good, although there were some points where he didn't sound as good as he normally does. But at the end of the day, there's no question that he should win the competition.
