Idol Top 7 – Redux

Idol Thoughts

This week was devoted to disco.

Matt Giraud -Bee Gees “Stayin’ Alive” – After last week’s historic “save” I don’t think Matt has done himself any favors here.  It was just… messy.

Lil Rounds –  Chaka Khan “I’m Every Woman” – Again, another chance for Lil to do something unique and personal and she didn’t take advantage.  And what is this arguing with the judges?  If it looks like a duck, and sounds like a duck, it’s karaoke.

Kris Allen – Donna Summer “She Works Hard for the Money” – Oh my.  For the first time I have to say I really liked Kris’ performance!  He’s established himself as the dark horse in the competition (in my opinion, at least).

Anoop Desai – Donna Summer “Dim All the Lights” – Meh.

Danny Gokey – Earth, Wind & Fire “September” – Again, he just sounds the same and gives the same performance as the last couple weeks.  I do think he’ll make it to the finals, but I just don’t see him winning it all.

Allison Iraheta – Donna Summer “Hot Stuff” -Whoever is giving this girl wardrobe and song advice should be smacked. Granted, Allison can pull of any song vocally, but why must she be in such a hurry to grow up in the subject area and wardrobe??

Adam Lambert -Bee Gees “If I Can’t Have You” – I thought it interesting that Simon expected Donna Summer.  I totally expected a Saturday Night Live tune 😉  Loved it….which I’m sure doesn’t surprise anyone that’s been reading my updates.

My vote this week: Adam (Duh)

In danger:  Lil, Anoop and Matt.   I’m kinda hoping Lil and Matt go, but any two of the three works for me.

Challenge Stats (Day 2):

  • #1 – 25 Projects:  No purchases, No finishes
  • #2 – 25 Books:  No purchases, No finishes

So far so good!!!

  1. We were pretty confident in our house that Lil and Anoop would be voted off. I didn’t get to hear Lil’s performance, but Anoop made me physically ill. I do think Matt has to be spectacular next week, or he’s out. Unless Allison is worse.

    I remain another Adam groupie. 🙂

  2. I’d vote for Adam too, if I didn’t live in New Zealand, and we weren’t about a week and a half behind. I’ve been keeping up on the website, though. 🙂

  3. Annette, thank you so much for the lovely Woodland exchange, the needlebook is very pretty and I actually plan to use it 🙂 I loved all, especially the ribbon is very interesting. I will post to HOE’s blog tomorrow as I’m just too tired (soon 10 pm here in Poland) to do anything clever! 🙂
