American Idol-I'm Back!

Sorry about the unexplained hiatus last week-we had baseball and I forgot to set the DVR. Hmph. I did see the end of the results show and I'm just not sure how I feel about all of it. On the one hand I have liked Matt, but I also didn't see his performance last week. The fact that he's been in the bottom 2 or 3 more than once (has it been twice?) means that he doesn't have a huge following, and probably can't win anyway. I'm not sure that if I were a judge I would have used my save on him-especially at this point in the competition. Losing two this week is going to be hard...Or really easy depending on how they do, seeing that it's:

Disco Week.

Really? This theme is really hard so I'm either expecting to be surprised or hate them all. So let's get to it.

Lil-I'm Every Woman-Not so great from Lil...I feel bad for her. (Paula said she was sick...bummer.) I think she'll be going home.

Kris-She Works Hard for The Money-Ooh, great vibe! This is really, really amazing. Acoustic? Bongos? Who knew? This ROCKED!!! This is how you do disco week! Exactly what Kara and Simon and Randy said. (I'm going to watch this again and again on the DVR. Really, really good.)

Danny-September-This is really good, but following Kris is getting harder and harder. I love Danny and really think that he is going to get a contract on his own no matter what he does on the show. He's strong and predictable, and never dissapoints.

(Can we get rid of Paula? I'd totally vote for that. I just don't get her anymore.)

Allison-Hot Stuff- I'm not sure anyone else could have pulled it off but this arrangement really works for her. I liked it, and don't agree with the judges really. Well, except for Simon. Smart man to agree with me.

Adam-If I Can't Have You-Toned down so far, which if you read my Idol reviews each week, is good. I tend to think he's over the top-oops. There he goes again. I don't think the arrangement works either. Sorry. I'm no Adam fan, and this was awful if you ask me, and I don't agree with the judges at.all. Blech.

Matt-Staying Alive- OK-listening to this it's pretty good but then I looked up and the "look" is just off. Which Idol stylist is single-handedly trying to bring back the Member's Only jacket? It was not hot in the 80's and it's not hot now. I'm on the fence about this performance. It wasn't awful but it was far from the best.

Anoop-Dim All The Lights-I like him but I figured out what's wrong. He's just not exciting. I don't think he'll make it to the finals.

Best of the night: Kris, by a country mile, followed by Allison and Danny.

Bottom four: All the others. I think that Lil and Matt will probably go home after tonight. What about you?

You don't like paula either? LOL - Oh how sad! I think she's just a great entertainment piece. I am not sure I like the other lady (see I don't even know her name)...she's "unfogetable"...with Simon's accent. (leaving out the "r" on purpose)

I'm tired...I don't think I'm making sense!!! Sorry Honey - you know I'm not all here lately anyway.

But I still <3 Adam...LOL
