My favorite genre...Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Peter Lawford, Joey Bishop & Sammy Davis Jr in the front...the original Rat Pack.
Kris sang Just the Way You Look Tonight.
I loved it! Simon didn't, but I thought Kris did a great job and he looked and sounded the part.
Nice compliment from Jamie Foxx, though!
He's all ready to work with Kris after the show is over.
How totally cool is that?
Someone To Watch Over Me, a delicate and elegant classic..
Beautifully crafted by Allison...lovely to see her bring it down to a tender place.
I always knew she could.
That's why I kept crabbing about her wardrobe and her wild appearance.
All she needed was a new look and a good dresser to peel the camouflage away, exposing her gentle heart.
Nice, very nice.
Matt Giraud loves jazz, studied it in college and lives this genre.
My Funny Valentine is a tender piece, and Matt aced it.
I thought that was wonderful!
Randy was not a fan, though.
Kara wasn't fond of it, either.
Paula gave him her kinder, sweeter critique.
Simon...hold your breath...thought he was absolutely brilliant!
And, Jamie Foxx's producers were on their feet, applauding.
Nice work, Matt!
Danny chose Come Rain or Come Shine.
I would buy this guy's records.
Right now, boys and girls.
Didn't you just love this?
Adam closed with Feelin' Good...
What can I say?
Perfection, total perfection.
He has it all...gobs of stage presence, spectacular vocals and he looks like a dream walkin'...
He seems so darned humble and appreciative of the compliments and the standing O's he gets.
The perfect performer with amazing blow-me-out-of-the-water emotion and vocals.
I have not seen this kind of talent and appeal in a performer since Elvis.
"A supposed glitch on iTunes last week revealed that Adam Lambert and Kris Allen are the most downloaded contestants of American Idol's season 8.
More specifically, six songs by Adam crack the top 10 of an Idol-themed chart on iTunes, while three Kris performances appear on the list.
It's a controversial revelation, considering how Idol's producers try to keep sales numbers secret to avoid letting each contestant's popularity be known, but more so because Idol's producers fans were anticipating an Adam-Danny showdown in the finals."
