American Idol - Top 10

Hello, I'm still alive. And I've been dying to blog about this season of American Idol, but the stars haven't aligned to allow that until tonight.

So let me just get a few points out of the way. First of all, LOVE Paula's dress tonight. Actually, just the bottom half - I'm a sucker for tulle.

Next, I think that this is my favorite cast in about 2 or 3 seasons. LOVE almost every one of 'em.

Matt Giraud - Let's Get it On
I love this guy, but I wonder if he made the song HIS? I like it, but I always wonder about the judges...oh GOOD, they liked it!

Kris Allen - How Sweet it Is
Kris is talented, but I think he's at the bottom of the pile as far as Star Factor in this bunch. His performance was good, but it wasn't great, in my opinion.

Scott McIntyre - You Can't Hurry Love
Big Daddy says Scott has a Barry Manilow vibe. Makes sense - I love Barry and I'm a Scott fan, too. I wish that he'd been just a little more crazy in this song; he almost got there but not quite.

Hey, this judge bickering is just annoying. And the Ryan baiting Simon bit? I'm over it. STOP IT.

Megan Joy - For Once in My Life
Very brassy arrangement, which I love because I'm a jazz band geek from Jr. High. But Megan singing this song? Just seems corny to me. Ew, I don't like it at all.

Hey, I think that "I had a good time," is the contestants' way of stomping their feet and saying, "DON'T CARE what you say, you stupid judges!" What do you think? They usually say it after bad feedback, but not often after good. Spoiled brats.

Anoop Desai - Baby, Baby
Love this song, still can't get over how good Anoop is when he's good. LOVE his voice.

Michael Sarver - Ain't Too Proud to Beg
I love my Texas boy. This song, though? I agree with Smokey that Michael should have punched it more. I always get nervous when they start shaking people's hands - Just concentrate on your singin', dude! Sounded to me that he was behind the tempo quite a bit, too. Wah. I don't wanna see Michael go this week.

Lil Rounds - Heat Wave
Okay, first of all, let me get this out of the way - I thought her name was Lil, like short for Lillian. But Ryan and Simon keep sayin' that it's Lil', like slang for Little.

Which is it?

Anyway, on to Lil's singing. Oh no, sorry but HERE's the Vegas lounge act. She has a good voice, but NO.

Adam Lambert - Tracks of My Tears
Like the hair. Wow, he looks better without his usual costume. I liked his performance, but I didn't think it was the Performance Of A Lifetime, like the judges obviously did.

Danny Gokey - Get Ready
He's another of my favorites - I enjoyed the performance, but it wasn't a stand-out.

Allison the Red Haired Girl - Papa Was a Rollin' Stone
She has such a unique voice, but I don't get any charisma or connection from her.

Uh oh, that's all of 'em! That means it's opinion time, y'all! My favorite tonight was Matt Giraud, I guess. Who should go home? Probably Kris Allen or Lil Rounds.

What did you think about tonight's show? Speak up!

Megan should go home. No. Doubt.

Adam and Allyson are my favorites.

Megan needs to go home. Closely followed by Scott. Maybe there could be a double elimination!
