American Idol...Eight Left...

Danny Gokey
A light and fun song, definitely not one of my favorites, but this guy can be a craftsman with a song.
I love what Randy said about him.
He definitely will end up in the finals.

Anoop Desai
I really didn't get it.
This makes me sad, 'cause this guy has a VOICE.
Maybe it's song choice, maybe a little immaturity.
Whatever it is, it's not for me.

Kris Allen
I still don't know how to spell Chris/Kris.
I read it different ways in different places.
Good song, good voice, nothing spectacular.

Scott MacIntyre
I thought this was one of his best to date!
Wow! He can cut a tune really sweetly. Good for him!

Lil Rounds
Not tonight, Lil.
Better than last week but still sounds like Mariah Carey or Whitney...I want her to sound like LIL!

Allison Irahita
Get a dresser and a stylist for this darling little girl, please!
The hair was tamer, but the clothing? Too Goth and too just plain big for her.
Again, I cannot hear her for looking at her.

Matt Giraud
He did it!
He Michael Buble'd Michael Buble!
Great performance, nice look, the hat worked, Matt!

Adam Lambert
Two words.
American Idol.
This was undoubtedly the most depressing song ever written and recorded.
Yet, Mr. Lambert made it icily, chillingly his own, and by changing his appearance to that of a crystalline Jack Frost...his voice matched his appearance!
Excellent lighting...everything fit the performance perfectly.
He's so versatile, I never know what to expect and every time he twists the picture just a little more to the left or right, but never lands in the center.
Good job tonight.
He's the bomb.
Give him the title, let the rest of the kids go home.
A standing O from Simon C...I rest my case.

Listen to his voice... at 22 years old...
From Brigadoon:

And, my favorite, The Prayer...

"I met someone the other night who's 28 years old, and he hasn't worked a day since he left college because he's pursuing a dream he'll never, ever realize.
He thinks he's a great singer. Actually, he's crap." ~ Simon Cowell

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Brenda, I totally agree with your comments about Adam. I think he is definitely the one to beat in this competition. I actually didn't like Scott's performance and loved Alisons! So we do disagree a little! :)

It'll be very interesting who lands in the bottom three tonight. The judges only have three more shots after tonight of using their Save. But as long as Adam, Matt and maybe Danny or Alison doesn't land in last place, I doubt that they will use it.

Great recap Brenda! Thanks for sharing.

Hi, Kathy,
I truly cannot choose between Adam and Danny. They are each gifted in their own way and both are people that I'd listen to if they were in concert or on CD.

Difficult choice...glad I don't have to make it! Either way, it's going to be a heartbreaker, because one will not be American Idol this season. :-(
