I love when my posts get shorter each week with one less contestant. My brain can keep up with all the contestants better. And I don’t have to type so much.
Danny -When he started out at the mic stand and it was a slow song, I got a little nervous. Sometimes he falls off notes when he’s singing slow and low. But he did well with it. I loved that he got out from behind the mic and gave it some soul during the chorus. And the ending was great. I think the mix of ballad and up tempo song worked for him. Definitely one of my favorites vocally in recent weeks.
Scott – I did not enjoy this. He was off in several parts and once again found myself bored.
Lil – Lil can sing, I’ll give her that. But so can most of the other contestants. Lil is really hurting right now by not showing she can make a song unique.
Kris – I was really starting to like Kris and think that he could potentially win or be Top 3 but another performance like that and he’ll be out sooner than Top 3. The song was weird and his vocals were not that great. I think he needs to stick to ballads.
Anoop – Anoop sang well but I felt like the song was a little too safe. Nothing American Idol-ish about that.
Matt – Loved tonight’s performance. I was nervous when they announced his song but I think all his runs and his soul vibe fit right in.
Allison – I absolutely love that Bonnie Raitt song so it would be hard for her to make me hate it but I thought she did a fantastic job.
Adam – I had to watch Adam sing twice but I have to say, that was awesome. Love that he had very little makeup on and he sat in a chair. When Adam tones himself down and actually shows us his voice instead of all that other weird stuff about him, he does great.
My favorites in order tonight were Adam, Danny and Matt
Those in trouble: Scott, Anoop, Lil
Who should go: Scott
