It was the worst week of performances yet. Worse than the bad performances on Michael Jackson and country weeks put together. Here’s my take on each performer:
Anoop Desai (singing Usher): Bloody hell it was awful. No originality. And, he kept making these snarly face while he sang that made it look like he had gas pains.
Megan Joy (singing Bob Marley): Uninspiring. Flat. Dull. She at least has her own sound and looks the part of a pop star. But, it’s not enough to erase hitting all those bad notes.
Danny Gokey (singing Rascal Flats): Ballads are his thing and he does them well. Not great; not bad. Just so-so. The judges love him though.
Allison Iraheta (singing No Doubt): I dig the rock chick vibe. But her vocals seemed a bit off and definitely not as good as the week before. Glad to see she plays guitar. And, she took a lot of crap for her outfit (see photo). Probably trying-too-hard to channel Gwen. But funky & fun for a 16-year-old.
Scott MacIntyre (singing Billy Joel): Stripped down, just him on the piano. Better than past performances. He’s a good musician, but for me, it’s just not translating. Meh.
Matt Giraud (singing The Fray): Boring train wreck. Wrong song. Copycatish. See-ya.
Lil Rounds (singing Celine Dion): Big voice. Big song. But no goosebumps. Fail. Don’t like the use of the wig/weave look for the second week in a row, especially when your entry video shows you with different hair.
Adam Lambert (singing Wild Cherry): He’s got balls. Hard core shock-rock vocals and no fear = stealing the show every week.
Kris Allen (singing Bill Withers): Wanted to create a “moment” to be remembered by. So, what did he do? He played piano — on the same night two others guys played piano. Huh? That said, his singing was good and a lot better than the other two piano men (even if he does remind me of Jamie Walters).
Overall, the night was pretty sucky. Top spots go to Adam, Kris and Allison. Bottom: Everyone else should go home.
Your turn: Who ruled the night? Who should go home?
