Disco American Idol

Lil Rounds - I'm Every Woman

I remember a couple seasons ago when Mandisa sang this song. She rocked this song, Lil did not. The audience seemed to like it but I thought it was rough. It may not have sounded like chaka khan's version of the song but it sounded a lot like Whitney Houston's.

Kris Allen - She Works Hard for the Money

Kris made this song his own style and did a great job. He is safe this week. Paula and Simon had a bazaar back and forth about women's underwear ugh! They need to drop it!

Danny Gokey - September

You know I was thinking as I was watching Danny tonight that his style reminds me a lot of Taylor Hicks but he doesn't have the wonderful quirkiness that Taylor Hicks possesses. The all or nothing dance steps and the from the bottom of your soulfullness. He sang well but I don't know if he has what it takes to stay around much longer. He is safe this week though

Allison Iraheta - Hot Stuff

This was good, I tried not to think about the fact that she is a 17 year old girl singing the lyrics "I want some hot stuff baby this evening..." I like that she made it her own and didn't sing the disco version of it even though I wasn't crazy about the arrangement.

Adam Lambert - If I can't have you

This was good. I wasn't crying or anything like Paula was but it was good.

That's what she said Moment: (this is for you Katie) "Every Week you up it for me" and "I felt your vulnerability"

Matt Giraud - Stayin' Alive

This was a fun performance and my initial reaction was that he made it current. He seemed a little desperate towards the end though. I think he has saved himself for one more week with this performance.

Anoop- Dim all the Lights

I did not enjoy this. I totally agreed with Simon. I thought it was boring and painful to listen to.

Anoop and Lil are going home this week.

Thanks for the "That what she said" moment...I missed hearing that one last night.
After last night, I'm fully convinced that Paula is on some sort of drugs. Crying after Adam's Performance - Get over it - It was just a song...
I think Lil and Anoop are gone... but we shall see.
