No one a Kris Allen fan? I love his voice. My top 3 are Allen, Danny Gokey, and Adam Lambert.

I was very surprised to see Scott and Megan make it even more so that Megan was not even in the bottom 3. I knew Mike would be in the bottom group.

Gotta say this, Smokey and Josh sounded worse tonight than any of the contestants did lastnight.

Smokey is 69 isn't he? It's a shame how much you're voice goes out as you get older.

By Josh do you mean Joss Stone who did a duet with him?

I didnt like the duet. I fast forwarded through it. I never really liked Smokeys voice anyway and never heard of Joss. hahah.

Looks like Matt got the curse of the bottom three for going first. They say those that play first at this point usually go to the bottom three because most people arent home in time to catch the first singer? I dont know about that but it was true this time. Megan should have taken Matts spot for sure tho. Scott should have gone home but I didnt really like Michael either and he would have gone anyway at some point.

For those taping the show you should also make sure you tape the show after it. Being a live show it runs over a lot.

Megan was bad again.

Yep. I think Paula had the right suggestion of parking it on a stool and just sing something...doubt that will help though either. Megan is attractive, which has helped her some, but that only goes so far.

Scott had scare hair, but he may have kept himself in for another week with that performance.

Matt is toast after tonight (if Megan doesn't beat him to it).

WOW! Kris was working it tonight. Dang! The first time I've really enjoyed his singing.
03/31/2009 09:28:13 PM · #59
Again Adam, Danny and Allison were on top of the game. Lil Rounds was better this week but still a clone of past idol singers, Chris was good tonight also. Scott should be safe after hearing Matt and Megan. Anoop should be safe but could be in the bottom three mostly because he went first tonight and didn't blow the roof off the joint.

Back in my radio days, at one of the stations I worked for, I went by the name Kris Allen. Very weird to hear that name again.

Anyway... they may as well just skip ahead to the finale. Could there be any doubt that it'll be Adam and Danny in the final 2...?
03/31/2009 11:18:59 PM · #61
wow...wow

I couldn't believe Allison was in the bottom three, I reckon if she had been the one with the least votes the Judges would have used their save. Megan would not have been saved, it sure didn't help her cause when she said she didn't care about the Judges oppinions.
04/03/2009 09:19:57 AM · #63
I think Allison is awesome. When I'm watching the show, I often close my eyes and try to objectively listen and think "would I listen to that person on the radio or on my Ipod?" She could do songs similar to what have made Kelly Clarkson do well. Plus her unassuming personality helps too.

As touching and inspirational as Scott's story is, I'm sooooo over his milk toastness. I think Kris and Matt are terrific but they'd have to be given the right songs to make it in the pop market. As great as Ruben's voice is, he has yet to record an album or even a single that suits his voice. Because they are trying to put him into an R & B category, he's never going to make it. I remember the season he won. He could knock the socks off of jazz standards, but those types of albums are not widely bought...... Adam is in a league all his own. I appreciate his unique abilities and his range, but I still see him as being more of a Broadway type with a huge gay following. Nothing wrong with that.

Glad Megan is gone. She had a uniqueness for certain, but it became grating to listen to her.

I really like Alison. Her voice reminds me a bit of Linda Ronstadt (sp?) and I think she could do those types of songs well. Showing my age, I know.

That being said, I think it will come down to the guys - Adam, Danny and maybe Kris. I think Adam will have a career at this point even if he doesn't win, so I almost hope someone like Danny or Alison would win in stead.
04/03/2009 09:56:11 AM · #65
Allison is ok but she will not win. She will be in the top three tho. She will make some records and kind of be like those other Idols that didnt win but you hear about now and then.

The winner will be Adam and Danny will be next to him in the finals. Adam will do very well with Entertainment 19 and Danny will get a nice label deal to.

I never really liked Lil in this competition. She would make a great ship or lounge singer but there is just nothing different about her and Ive seen and heard "Lils" before in every AI competition. I am wanting to fast forward through her performances now but hang on and watch only to hopefully see what the judges do and I never do. I think she looks like a fish when she sings to. (Sorry but that was just the Simon in me. hahah)

Scott is going this week or next. I always fast forward through his performances now. They bore me. The guy is great with a gentle heart but as a performer he is really done on this show.

Anoop would be great on a ship or in a hotel or in a wedding band but he doesnt have the chops to win this competition.

Matt is ok but he is all over the place and really needs another few years to find his place in the music world. He will go home soon.

I feel sorry for Meagan but she was getting an attitude because it was like the twilight zone for her. In other words she was in the right place with the right voice but at a very wrong time.

Just my recap. :=)

Oooo yes. Kris. How could I forget him when I think he is from my state? hahah. I think he came into his a little to late for this competition. He is very good and will be like Allison and make some records but he doesnt have the "it factor" that Adam has. Its just Adams time to shine and he will and very brightly.

I agree, She will be like one of those non winners that had Success such as Chris Daughtry or Jennifer Hudson. Then again she is young. She just might spend the next 20 years rocking the world sensless. I hope for tha later because I think she has all the potential and skills to do it.

Did anyone else think there was something oddly cheerful about Megan Joy's departure night? She appeared to be using something to alter her mood.

I can't imagine having to sing after all of that.
04/06/2009 05:33:16 PM · #68
Yeah she seemed like she might have been on some sort of happy pills. I had the displeasure of watching her perform again this morning on Live with Regis and Kelly. The poor girl just keeps getting worse. Again song choice murdered any hope of an acceptable performance.

We are a couple of weeks behind in NZ the other night Adam Lambert did Mad World.....I just cannot stop playing that song ( seriously at least 20 odd times a day! I loved the song anyway but his version is just divine :) ).he is absolutely brilliant and is going to be a superstar!

Adams, If I cant have you, was to die for! There is no competition this season Alison will come a distant second.

What do you think?
05/02/2009 09:04:24 PM · #71
i think because Adam made the bottom 3 this past week that he isn't any more safe then the others who remain. Next show is Rock and Roll so Adam should be ok Allison and Danny too, I think Chris will be the next one off. the week after that I believe they will sing 2 songs each one that they pick themselves the other picked by the judges.

I would guess it would have to be Chris off next, though I hate to see it. I think he's really grown and has done some wonderful things recently. I like someone who can take criticism, learn from it and get stronger.

I think Allison goes before Danny.
05/02/2009 10:27:08 PM · #73
The 4 who are left are all very different, and I think all very talented. I think Kris will have the most problem with the rock and roll week, but he tends to surprise me.

I am actually a little tired of Adam, although he definitely has talent. His over the top routine just doesn't have the staying power for me that Alison or Danny have. I think when Danny said he had been studying some performers - but preferred not to name who it was - that he was referring to Adam. He's no dummy.

I think final will come down to Adam and Danny unless Alison just blows it out of the water this week and next.
05/02/2009 10:40:08 PM · #74
I agree with you 100% on Adam and Danny. I also think that because it is Rock next time up. Allison is finally going to be in her corner of the world and will indeed blow the roof off that place. As I said above Chris goes this week. Like you said Rock is going to trip him up. The other 3 have the Rock voice, Chris is more of a pop culture R&B type of voice. Very good but not a Rocker. I can't wait to see what songs the judges pick for them when it is down to 3.
