AIS8: Top Three Prediction Guess...

My usual format for these recaps is to make a prediction in one post, and then report on that prediction's validity and make comments about the performances in another. But since this is the last week of regular competition, I'm going to switch things up. I'm going to make my comments, then my prediction in this post. It's pretty much going to be everything I typed up as I watched. Kind of a live blog. But before I get to that, here's EW's weekly totally biased power ranking of the singers. Here's Simon Cowell saying Adam will win.

Boo yah...

Danny Gokey
Judge's Choice: Dance Little Sister by Terence Trent D'arby (Paula)
  • Wow. He looks more like Robert Downey Jr. than ever tonight...
  • Uh Oh. He just danced a little. I'm sure he's going to get slammed for that!
  • And now he's going down in front of the judges. This is usually said to be a move of desperation...
  • I didn't like the song, but I really like his voice. I'm not sure the two matched very well though...
  • Randy: liked it, Kara: Yep. Talked about the dancing, Paula, liked it, Simon, second dancing comment. Vocally, very very good. He would've picked another song though...

    Kris Allen
    Judge's Choice: Apologize by OneRepublic (Randy and Kara)
  • Vocally, he just can't compete with Adam and Danny...
  • His falsetto is really weak...
  • I love that he can play more than one instrument...
  • Randy: I can't remember what he said, Kara: Didn't like it, take more chances, Paula: Bum note, she's proud, Simon: Kara copped out, you can't choose a song for him and then fault him for doing the song! Wow. Kara just lost it on Simon. I hope they don't bring her back...

    Adam Lambert
    Judge's Choice: One by U2 (Simon)
  • I got super excited to hear his version. But let down pretty fast...
  • I literally hate how he did this song. The phrasing, the speech, everything...
  • Randy: like, Kara: unbelievable (she's an idiot), Paula: calls him the American Idol, Simon: Brilliant, if he doesn't make it to the final, it will be the biggest upset ever...


    Danny Gokey
    Singer's Choice: You Are So Beautiful by Joe Cocker
  • PERFECT choice...
  • There's a connection that i see in Adam's eyes when he sings that i don't see in Danny's...
  • He's sitting on a stool. Good move. No dance comments are possible now...
  • Simple arrangement. But different enough not to get blasted for being a copy...
  • Randy: you can really (x4) sing!, Kara: stunning, Paula: breathless, nailed it!, Simon: that was a vocal masterclass...

    Kris Allen
    Singer's Choice: Heartless by Kanye West
  • What...
  • Acoustic guitar and voice. Wow...
  • I LOVED IT...
  • Whoa. Jaw unhinged again...
  • Randy: liked it, Kara: fearless, perfect, Paula: can't remember what she said, Simon: he had written Kris off until that performance (me too)...

    Adam Lambert
    Singer's Choice: Cryin' by Aerosmith
    Is this a direct shot at Danny after last week? Maybe...
  • He has such diva-like mannerisms...
  • The song has been chopped up so much! Line from a verse here, then a bridge, then a chorus...
  • I think his voice worked with the song though...
  • Randy: One of the best ever on the stage, Kara: We'll see you at the finals?, Paula, We'll be seeing you next week and many years after that, Simon: He deserves to be in the final...


    Going into tonight, I would've said for sure that Kris would be going home. But after his version of Heartless, along with such strong showings by the other two, it's a super close race. So this is a total guess based on what my heart wants: I think Kris is going home...

    I guess we'll see tomorrow night...

    Kris & Adam were trending on Twitter, so for that reason alone I wouldn't be surprised if Gokey left. I think it'll be Adam & Gokey in the finals. But wouldn't be surprised if it was Adam getting the boot after the fat-tongue screaming.
