Well the show kicks off with baby pics and Simon was sooo cute. Ryan looked like a Louie Anderson/chucky love child as a kid. The wardrobe for this entire show was obviously hijack by some leather clad dominatrix or the same person that did the costumes for Mad Max. There was waaaay too many weird leather outfits. Paula was actually off the sauce tonight and made some really good comments!
DWD: OMG his creepy stepford family is making me ill. Once again he looked a little puffy or like he'd been hitting the caitering truck too hard this week. The arrangement was really weird on this song. The performance was channelling Danny's inner Taylor Hicks(NOOOO!). The hand movements and dancing screamed soul patrol, yuck. The vocals were solid as usual, but I was kinda bored thru the whole thing.
Krissy Kermit aka Hal Sparks Monkey boy: Wow another terrible song arrangement! Krissy got up there with his guitar and tried an uptempo song this time, but it totally failed. Kris tried to bring the funk to this song, but the only funk Kris has is maybe his socks or dirty underwear. KK is about as a funky and hip as hammer pants with plaid suspenders. The whole thing seemed a bit forced at times. The band and the crowd stole the show for sure. Speaking of crowds what was with that? I saw a whole bunch of chicks which was expected, but then there were like 3 guys grooving along. It seemed a bit...um....weird and gay.
Merkin Rounds: WTF was with the outfit. They had Merkin sportin' her Tina Turner Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome look or maybe a biker bar tramp? I don't know. Merkins' Merkin was looking a little flat on one side, like she slept on it or something, but oh well. Her hair looks so much better now After tonight I realized that I really cant stand her voice. She needs vocal coaching or to bring it down a peg. The song was off key, note, tone, octave, everything. It was just a mess and all over the place.
Anoop Slumdog: I love me some Anoop. He reminds me of a cool guy I probably would kick it with. I am totally distracted by his bert eyebrows. The shirt they had him in was like something a tacky, dorky college kid would wear. Lime green is never, ever a good look on anyone unless it's 1984. Anoop laid down some sweet vocals this time. Good job.
Blind Scott AKA Wolverine AKA little Orphan Annie: O.K. how in the hell could Scott be a train Engineer? Did I miss something, he's blind!!! Scott got up there with his guitar, which I didnt know he could play. He sings yet ANOTHER snoozer song meant for the geriatric crowd. His performance was terrible. The guitar playing was aweful and it seemed as if he was just strumming along with the beat. He singing was wobbly and off note the whole time. Scott's creepy dead behind the eyes look had me reaching for my rosary. Please America, put him out of his misery.
Allison aka Pig nose or Treasure Troll: Wow, Allison even has a quirky weirdo mom, sweet! Allison has personality. She is a bit off and possibly really shy and ackward. I like that about her. She reminds me of myself. I hated the outfit they put her in. I didnt know if she yet another member of the Idol Military or she was a biker skank going hoing with Merkin Rounds! It was a great performance and for somone so young she sang it like she meant it!
Matt: Thank god Matt wore a hat tonight. That pimple/eye on his forehead was getting to be distracting. Once again leather makes an appearance and Matt looked like some leather jacket wearing Hobo. I thought he should have been on the corner Doo Wooping for change. I was glad he left the piano alone and just sang his butt off. It was a good performance.
Adam: Adam said on his video that he liked to dress up as a kid, wow that's a shock...not! After all the leather outfits I just knew Adam was gonna appear in buttless chaps, shirtless, and a cute leather hat! Sadly, he was just sporting a fugly light grey leather jacket. He sang a fav song of mine that I had no clue it was done many years ago. I just remember it from the Gears of War commercial. I didnt get the strange dark lighting. It was as if he was singing in a closet(no pun intended!) or about to be abducted by aliens. The vocals were o.k. and good on some parts, but when Adam goes nut punching high i'm not feeling it at all. I don't get why the judges go crazy over him. It was good, but not jaw dropping great. I prefer his performance during mowtown week.
I think Allison, Scott and LIL will be the bottom three.
