AMERICAN IDOL “The Top 7 Performs” Review

The top 7 performed tonight on AMERICAN IDOL Season 8. All I can say is that Adam and Kris are still running the show. But let’s find out how everyone did.

Allison Iraheta

Allison Iraheta

Song: “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” by Aerosmith

Thoughts: I know the judges liked it and I usually like her too, but tonight was a little disappointing to me.

Rating: 2/4

Anoop Desai

Song: “Everything I Do I Do It For You” by Bryan Adams

Thoughts: One of my favorite song of all time (I’m a huge Bryan Adams fan), so of course this could go either really well or really badly. I thought Anoop did a really good job. The man has a really nice voice.

Rating: 3/4

Adam Lambert

Adam Lambert

Song: “Born To Be Wild” by Steppenwolf

Thoughts: Once again, Adam Lambert blows the competition out of the water. That was pretty incredible. Funny enough, I had a friend over who had never seen the show and while he wasn’t that impressed with the first two, here is what he said about Adam “Yeah, he’s ready.”

Rating: 4/4

Matt Giraud

Matt Giraud

Song: “Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman?” by Bryan Adams

Thoughts: Another Bryan Adam song, and Matt singing it, this was bound to be good. I don’t really agree with the judges, I thought Matt did pretty good.

Rating: 4/4

Danny Gokey

Danny Gokey

Song: “Endless Love” by Lionel Richie & Diana Ross

Thoughts: Would you look at that, Danny Gokey without glasses…I don’t know which one I like better. As for the performance, well Danny always sounds the same to me. It was just ok.

Rating: 2/4

Kris Allen

Kris Allen

Song: “Falling Slowly” by Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová

Thoughts: OMG I love this song, and Kris was amazing, dare I say it I even liked his performance tonight better than Adam. Wow. But I do wonder if it would have even been better with the guitar. I don’t know what Randy was listening to, seriously, this was brilliant.

Rating: 4/4

Lil Rounds

Lil Rounds

Song: “The Rose” by Bette Midler

Thoughts: Well, Lil Rounds continues to be uninspiring to me. And her talking back to Simon was frankly annoying.

Rating: 2/4

So now picking the bottom three is getting harder and harder. I would put Lil Rounds, Allison Iraheta, Danny Gokey. But I would send Lil Rounds home.

I guess we’ll find out who’s going home tomorrow night.
