American Idol- The Top 3, It’s Reigning Men!

OK, I admit the pun above is bad, but it couldn’t be more true.  This has been a year for the men in this competition, and I think that there is little doubt that the three best contestants are the ones that are left.

Last night we got two songs from each of the three guys.  One was the judges choice, and the other was the contestants choice.  Danny Gokey started it off with Paula’s choice for him which was ‘Dance Little Sister’ by Terence Trent D’Arby.  I think that Paula really hurt Danny with this song choice.  She choose a song that was a lesser know of D’Arby’s songs and it was a piss poor choice.  All the judges agreed that the vocals were dead on, but Danny made a fool of himself with his dancing.  Kris Allen came next and Kara and Randy choose One Republic’s ‘Apologize.’  I thought he sang it wonderfully, but it did sounds just like the original, and the judges gave him hell for it.  Adam Lambert was next, and Simon gave him ‘One’ by U2.  Now before I go any further I'[ve got to say that I”m a huge U2 fan, and One is one of the greatest songs of all time in my book.  That being said, I thought Adam massacred it.  He took away so much of the emotion that comes with that song and made it a perfect fit for a Broadway musical.

For the contestant’s choice Danny lead us off with ‘You Are So Beautiful.’  The judges all agreed that he sang it beautifully, and he did.  Is it just me or has Danny become boring?  At one point he was my favorite in this whole competition, now he just put me to sleep every time he steps on stage.  Kris followed up with an AWESOME acoustic version of ‘Heartless’ which was the best performance of the night.  Adam followed up with his performance of ‘Cryin’ which I thought was much better than his version of  ‘One.’

So tonight it all comes down to the votes.  I don’t think there is any doubt that Adam is going to make it dannykristhough, so the question is who is going to be in the top two with him?  I’m hoping it’s Kris.  Lord knows I voted more last night than I have all season long.  I’ve said for a long time now that Kris is the only one of the contestants I would consider buying music from, so I do hope he goes through tonight.

I don’t know how confidant I am, but I’m predicting that Danny goes home tonight.  It will be him or Kris, and I’ve pulling for Kris to stay.

  1. YES to everything you just said. I was pulling for Danny at first and I still get upset when people insult him because of things but lately I’ve felt ‘menh’ everytime he comes on stage (lets not mention the scream heard round the world)

    Adam totally ruined that song. I hated it. I am not a huge fan of his but that song has SO much meaning and he just.. argh but of course the judges ‘loved’ it.

    Kris stole the show completely. He deserves to be in the finale. I actually would love for him to win (then again not because Adam losing would create a frenzy of media and Kris would be overshadowed. Second is a good place for him. It will allow him to make an album and I will buy it 🙂 )

    Adam did do better on Cryin’ but that back up singer was just awful.

  2. I found your blog on google and read a few of your other posts. I just added you to my Google News Reader. Keep up the good work. Look forward to reading more from you in the future.
