AMERICAN IDOL “Top 5 Performs” Review

Tonight on AMERICAN IDOL Season 8, the final 5 contestants sang songs inspired by the rat pack guided by Jamie Foxx.

Let’s find out how they did:

Kris Allen

Kris Allen - American Idol 8

Song: “The Way You Look Tonight” by The Lettermen

Thoughts: I like Kris, he is in my top 2, but I have to say that tonight was one of my least favorite performance of his. I have to agree with Simon on that one.

Rating: 3/4

Song: “I’m Gonna Love You Like Nobody Loves You”

Rating: 4/4

Adam Lambert

Adam Lambert

Song: “Feeling Good”

Thoughts: Adam Lambert is the Tiger Woods of American Idol. Seriously, I am running out of things to say about him. He is so brilliant I still don’t understand why he wasn’t discovered before this. Every week he raises the bar.

Rating: 5/4

So who’s going home tomorrow? My bet is that it’s either going to be Allison or Matt.
