Waiting for American Idol to cue up.
Because of last week's judges save (Matt), tomorrow night two contestant will be voted off.
Tonight's theme is disco. Umm, hmm...my kinda night!
Lil gets the night started with Chaka Khan's (so butchered the spelling of her name) song, "I'm Every Woman". Lil has really slipped the last few weeks. Tonight is no different. While her version of the song wasn't bad, it was just average. Not a standout performance. I didn't hear any standout vocals. (Oh, boy, Lil's Momma does NOT like what she hears.) Lil looks so sad. Paula just mentioned Lil was not feeling good. Simon just told Lil that he thinks she will go home tomorrow night. I have to agree.
Kris waits in the wings as we go to commercial.
Kris is singing "She works Hard for the Money" by Donna Summer. Interesting choice.
Love the Latin sound. A bit of Latin (something like Santana) mixed with a bit of Kenny Loggins. I can dig that. It has a real acoustic sound. I really am enjoying it. He has made his own version really slick. A bold move, but one that I think worked. Go Kris! Great control, great sound. Really, I think Kris is the underdog in this contest. He's my favorite, aside from Allison.
Allison and Danny are coming up after the break.
I agree Derek, And Lil, no....really (sadly), you didn't miss a thing.
Danny is singing Earth, Wind and Fire's. "September". Oh, I like this song....A good song, but a safe choice for Danny. It really doesn't showcase his vocals. I do like the change in the arrangement though. I hated that I couldn't really enjoy that Danny growl in this song. It was a good performance, but again, not a standout.
(Welcome, Kristin. Kristin didn't like Lil tonight, not even a 'lil")
Allison is doing a very different "Hot Stuff"(Donna Summer, whom I love). A rocking version. LOVE IT! LOVE IT! LOVE IT! I love the edginess she put into this song. I love her voice. She is feeling this song. Sing, it! Tone on.
Really judges? I liked it. I liked the change in the arrangement, she made it Allison. I really enjoyed it.
(Derek, you and I both. I too am agreeing with Simon, although usually I do. Last week, we not.)
(Welcome, Becky! Glad to have you join in. Cool story. He appears that way)
Adam is doing "If I Can't Have You".....He is back to his Kurt Russel appearance. Adam is changing up the arrangement to a sultry, sexy song. He is really connecting with the song, I can say that. Pouring his heart into it. His lower register vocals have a BREAD sound. It was ok for me. Interesting. His vocals were good, the arrangement was bold. It was a good performance. Original.
(I think we all agree tonight with Adam's performance tonight. yeah!)
Matt is doing the BeeGee's song, "Staying Alive". He is bringing a little funk to it. I like the arrangement. His falsetto is Bee Gee on. Bee Gee's...it was my first concert. I think it was a good move. Well done. Very well done. It got my toes tapping.
(Here we go, Simon and I disagree...Desperate? Nahhhh..Derek, looks like you and Simon ARE on the same page . I liked it. I agree, it wasn't to differnt from the original. I agree, it wasnt the standout of the night, but I did enjoy it.
Bye Kristin! Thanks for dropping in while you could. )
We are back from commercial now with Anoop. Anoop is singing another Donna Summer song of the night, "Dim All the Lights". He is changing the arrangement.....Anoop can sing. His vocals sound good. Anoop is good with ballads. I missed much of it though because my son and I were arguing about student housing/college. I do love his "new look".
(Derek, LOL! I like Anoop too. I think he can sing. I think his new look tonight looks more believable of a "idol")
Top performances based on tonight: Kris, Allison and Adam
I believe that Lil and Anoop will go home tomorrow night. I hate it too, I think Anoop is good, but I don't think he has the fans that some of the others might have. Lil has run her course.
Thanks friends, for joining in! I am changing over to DWTS.
