AMERICAN IDOL “Top 8 Performs” Review

The Top 8 performed on AMERICAN IDOL Season 8 tonight, and once again Adam Lambert blew everyone out of the water.

So let’s find out how everybody did:

Danny Gokey

Danny Gokey

Song: “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King

Thoughts: I honestly wasn’t crazy about the arrangement for the song, but I thought Danny did ok.

Rating: 3/4

Kris Allen

Kris Allen

Song: “All She Wants to Do Is Dance” by Don Henley

Thoughts: I usually like Kris Allen, but I wasn’t crazy about tonight’s performance.

Rating: 2/4

Lil Rounds

Lil Rounds

Song: “What’s Love Got To Do With It” by Tina Turner

Thoughts: Yep, still don’t really like Lil Rounds. It was pretty boring to me.

Rating: 2/4

Anoop Desai

Anoop Desai

Song: “True Colors” by Cyndi Lauper

Thoughts: I thought Anoop did pretty good.

Rating: 3/4

Scott MacIntyre

Scott MacIntyre

Song: “The Search is Over” by Survivor

Thoughts: I thought that was pretty bad. I’m not expecting Scott to last very long now in the competition.

Rating: 1/4

Allison Iraheta

Allison Iraheta

Song: “I Can’t Make You Love Me” by Bonnie Raitt

Thoughts: I like Allison, I don’t understand why she has found herself in the bottom three. Tonight’s performance was once again really good.

Rating: 3/4

Matt Giraud

Matt Giraud

Song: “Part Time Lover” by Stevie Wonder

Thoughts: Apart from Adam, I think Matt did the best tonight.

Rating: 4/4

Adam Lambert

Adam Lambert

Song: “Mad World” by Gary Jules with Michael Andrews

Thoughts: So I gotta ask, why does Adam Lambert need this competition again? Doesn’t he have a record deal already? He is ridiculously brilliant. I think Simon said it best by giving him a standing ovation.

Rating: 5/4 (Adam is off the charts I have to give him a 5).

So who do I think will be in the bottom three? Scott, Lil Rounds, Allison (unfortunately I think she might be there this week again).

Tune in tomorrow night to find out if I was right.
