AIS8: The Furious Five...

You know, I would love to brag about how I perfectly predicted how Lil Rounds and Anoop were the two contestants to be voted off last night on American Idol after last week's judges' save of Matt Giraud. I would love to. But I feel like it was way too obvious. Everyone could have guessed it. Why? Because the judges slaughtered them on Tuesday. Them more than any other. And like I said, I think it's become too obvious that the judges are trying to steer America in their decision.

But, a win's a win. My record is now 5 for 9*. I'm awesome...

And now, some thoughts...

Lil Rounds
  • Before she even got up to sing, I could've told you she was going to sing Chaka Kahn's I'm Every Woman. Is it always bad to choose the most obvious song? No. Unless you don't sing it well...
  • She looked great this week. But...
  • Like I've said before in regards to Matt Giraud, you have to watch your vocal runs. You don't want to lose the pitch of one note because you're trying to cram in fifteen of them...
  • Randy said that she had a lack of vocal control. He nailed it...

    Kris Allen
  • Was Kris sporting a mustache this week...
  • His song was simple, acoustic, and stripped down. It was a great compliment to his vocal ability. Which is simple...
  • He's not a bad singer. But he's not really good either. He's just... kind of... there.

    Danny Gokey
  • GREAT song choice (September by Earth, Wind & Fire)! It's been stuck in my head ever since...
  • His dancing is so awkward. Good thing he isn't on So You Think You Can Dance...
  • Simon thought his performance was a bit awkward too. This proves that I know as much about the music industry as him...

    Allison Irahita
  • Her singing was ok. She looked a little better this week. At least she didn't have a mullet...
  • The staging (lights, etc.) actually looked on par with what Adam usually gets...
  • Whether you're a fan of her voice or not (and I'm leaning toward the not), you have to admit she knows how to perform...

    Adam Lambert
  • No matter what he sings (with the exception of Tracks of My Tears and Mad Mad World) he has to bring out the Axel Rose screech...
  • Volume + range of the note do not equal quality...

    Matt Giraud
  • You know someone was going to do Stayin' Alive...
  • Three judges liked it. Simon hated it. I was completely indifferent to it...
  • No vocal runs this week! Which I was shocked at...

    Anoop Desai
  • This is exactly what I wrote down as I watched him: New haircut. Ballad again. Totally and completely boring. Goodbye Anoop...

    I am totally sick of Matt. Maybe it's because he sang Stayin' Alive.

    The only performance of his that I liked was when he did Georgia on My Mind, which was one of the very first weeks he was on.

    He'll be gone in the next two weeks.

    Him and Allison are next on the chopping block.
