This week, the Top 7 in American Idol Season 8 performed disco as they vie for the 5 slots and avoid the double elimination. After Matt Giraud’s save by the judges last week, 2 contenders will make the exit tonight.
After watching the show, it seemed transparent who the bottom 3 will be. The best 4 singers shone so brightly, it was pretty obvious that the bottom 3 will be Lil Rounds, Anoop Desai, and Matt Giraud. It seems the judges’ save was a waste last week as Matt failed to redeem himself. Of the 3, I think Anoop has the best chance to make it past this week while Lil’s defiance and attitude makes her the shoe in to go packing. Even if Anoop survives this week, it will take a miracle for him to get past next week. The top 4 are solid performers.
My favorite performances this week is Kris Allen’s acoustic version of “She Works Hard for the Money” and Adam Lambert’s unique rendition of “If I Can’t Have You.” Kris has been performing well the past weeks that he is starting to overshadow Danny Gokey’s initial popularity. Though Danny remains a strong contender because of his vocal talent, he hasn’t been delivering stunning or outstanding performances the past weeks. Meanwhile, Adam’s unique performances still keep him a cut above the rest. It may be a tough call guessing who America will vote for as the new idol. But if Danny continues to perform at this level, it will go down the wire between Adam and Kris.
