So, the theme this week was, well, whatever you want to sing I guess. It started out pretty bad and there were only a couple great performances for me. There are a few singers tonight who just seemed to pick awful songs. I don't get it when they say " I picked this song because I like it" If I were on American Idol I would pick songs that I'm good at singing and that America and the judges are going to like. It's like they forget that they are in a competition and they think they are singing for their own pleasure.
Anoop - Caught up
Anoop was one of the performers that I referenced above. He should not sing songs like this, Not good, he seemed very out of his element and I think Simon summed it up when he called it a "wannabe" performance. I think Anoop is in trouble with that performance.
Megan Joy- Turn Your Lights Down Low
Another artist who said that she picked the song because she likes it and once again it was not good. She may be in trouble tonight.
Danny - What Hurts the most
He had some pitchy moments but it was a good performance anyway. I'm sure that it was tough singing this song without crying thinking about his wife. Not the best of the night but I think he's safe.
Allison - Don't Speak
I thought she did good. the Judges didn't say much about her singing but spent too much time worrying about what she was wearing. Yeah, it wasn't the greatest outfit or hairstyle but who cares? She sounds great!
Scott - Just the way you are
This is the first time in the competition that I have enjoyed one of Scott's performances. I think he is safe from being in the bottom 3 this week.
Matt- Something by The Fray, I didn't catch the name (oops! my bad)
Another singer who sang something for themselves this week. After being in the bottom 3 last week you would think he would sing something that would make America want to vote for him. I really like Matt and I'm hoping he is safe this week but I'm pretty sure he'll be in the bottom 3 again.
Lil Rounds - I surrender
Maybe it is because It came through different on the tv screen or something but I thought this was awful. It was painful to listen to for me. It was very old fashioned too. The judges seemed to think she sounded great so, I don't know... I think she is safe.
Adam - Play that Funky Music
Weird song choice BUT I loved it! I'm starting to warm up to Adam. He was fun and entertaining tonight and sang really well.
Kris Allen - Ain't no Sunshine
Loved the arrangement, especially the breakdown part in the middle of the song. Besides the goofy monkey faces that Kris makes it was a good performance. I think he's safe.
Bottom 3 this week prediction: Megan, Anoop, Matt
