American Idol...Top Three...

American Idol's 300th show.
First, the judges' selection for each contestant...let's see what they choose.

Paula's choice for Danny is Dance Little Sister by Terence Trent D'Arby.
...and, Danny's back, for sure!
The Danny I just heard is the Danny I liked listening to when he auditioned.
Niiiice!
I think he does a fantastic job of this piece.

Kara and Randy's choice for Kris is Apologize by One Republic.
I love this song.
Let's see what he does with it.
Nice piano, soft vocals, good high notes!
Very well done.
I think he truly deserves to be in the Top 3.

Simon selects for Adam.
That's the perfect person choosing for the perfect person!
Perfect match-up.
Simon received special permission from Bono to use their song, One by U2.
Un-
be-
lieve-
a-
ble.
's all I have to say about his performance.
I am in tears at the end.

Now, for the contestant's own choices..
Danny decides to perform You Are So Beautiful by Joe Cocker.
Gorgeous vocals, ending with clear crystal high notes.
A little bit blues-y, a little bit of an old-fashioned Cocker-sound.
Quite a good choice for his raspy vocals!
Sexy voice, great range.

Kris chooses Heartless by Kanye West.
An unknown piece to me.
Lets see what he does with this one.
I tell ya, he really rips this one off the stage!
Clear vocals and no orchestra.
Bee-yoo-ti-ful.

And, finally...Adam picks Aerosmith's Cryin'
Oh, my.
Steven Tyler, move on over.
Adam Lambert's here, babe!
He's arrived and he's smokin' hot!
This young man can write his own ticket.
Reminds me of the early days of Elvis, when we were all in awe.
I truly am in awe, Adam.
See you at the top!

"When the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace."

I love your show recaps, Brenda!

I got thru to vote 100 times tonight. I won't say who I voted for, but he definitely is the best talent.

I thought all the performances last night were strong. I have no idea who will make it to the Finale but wow, what a talented bunch of guys.

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Brenda, great recap! I thought they all gave standout performances and any one of them can win Idol in the end. I have no clue who will move on tonight, but I do have my favorite! :)

I am going to be on pins and needles watching tonight's results show. I think this will be the most dramatic cut in Idol's history because these three are all so equally good. As you said, best top contestants in Idol history.

It will be interesting and I can't wait!

Thanks for your recap Brenda! Enjoy the results show tonight!

Barb Cabot:

Hi Brenda, Thanks for the update. I'm back from a mini vacation in Madison Wisconsin and watched no tv...but was dying first thing this a.m. to read your synopsis of AI. Thanks, now I can procede with the "must-do" list of catch up stuff. Got my AI fix. Thank you.

Marcia:

I'm with Annie, I think this could go any which way tonight, and it could also just reflect a certain popular vote, because all of these guys are uber-talented.

chiaro di luna:

BGE, thanks for the recap, had to miss it Tues.
Looking forward to tonight's show if I can stay awake.
Rooting for Adam.

Nancy,
Woohoo! You did?
Awesome...awesome.

Annie, I think it will be a travesty if Danny and Adam aren't in the finals.
Adam and Danny have been consistent and amazing throughout.
Kris has not. He's been up and down, sometimes great and sometimes forgettable.

Kathy,
I've already watched the show tonight, so I know that Danny is not in the final.
That breaks my heart.
Not that Kris isn't a good vocalist.
He is.
Good but not great.
He doesn't get inside of my soul like Danny does.
I am so not happy! :-(

Barb,
You're very welcome...
Enjoy the show tonight!!!

Marcia,
Yeah, it could go either way...
I think they are all talented, it's just that a couple of 'em are more talented!

chiaro,
Adam made it! Danny didn't, tho', which is a heartbreak 'cause I think he's by far more gifted than Kris.
Not to take anything away from Kris, I think he's got a great voice. Danny's simply got more mo-jo goin'.
