    I missed a lot tonight. I saw Allison and I'm upgrading her from kool-aid girl to a troll doll :rolleyes:
    I really don't like her voice.
    I saw a bit of Kris and he is cute but forgetable. I have trouble remembering his name every week.

    How was Danny tonight? I had to go and pick up my daughter as soon as he was introduced.

    Love the song that Adam is singing...it's perfect for his voice!

    (I think I want to adopt him!)

    Danny sang Stand By Me. It was good as usual. The judges commented on his taking liberties with the melody, but they liked it.

    So who goes? I vote Scott, but I wonder if Kris is in trouble. I think if Kris goes, they might use the save for him. He could have done better tonight! I love him, by the way.

    I don't think they would save Kris, actually. Did anyone notice Adam's hair? It looked just like a wig!

    I think Danny did the best tonight.

    Between taking the dog out, eating dinner, and cleaning up the dinner dishes I missed a lot tonight. The only ones I saw were really bad. Next Tuesday night I am eating dinner EARLY :lol:

    Bottom 3...my predictions:

    Lil, Kris, and Anoop. I liked all 3, but the competition is getting tough. Someone has to be in the bottom. Kris eliminated, hopefully judges save!

    I kept thinking the same thing! Who was he????

    I really liked Adam again except I am not so sure he should win. I have been reading a bit about him. I guess he was already on Broadway, isn't this supposed to be an amateur competition. He really is weird, if you google his name you will get many hits for pictures of him plus youtube videos. All I can say is he is a bit strange! But he sure can sing and perform.

    I think Scott will go tomorrow!

    I put it on the DVR so I could watch it after my Master's class- well, it ended before Adam sang! It recorded for an hour and one minute, and he was about to come on to sing when it stopped. He's my favorite one, and pretty much the only reason why I watch it!

    I thought most of them were pretty good tonight. Anoop did better then he's done in the past. Bonnie Raitt is the only one who can sing "I Can't Make You Love Me"--don't remember the title, but Allison was good.

    Scott was his usually self. He should go next.

    But Adam blew me away. He is so good. Absolutely wonderful. It's about "undiscovered talent", and he's got it.

    I WAS SO MAD :('CAUSE I COULDN'T SEE ADAM EITHER & HE'S MY FAV. WE HAD THE SAME THING ON OUR RECORDING TOO. Hubby was like, "Sorry you couldn't see Adam." What did he sing tonight for those of you who saw the WHOLE SHOW?
    Thanks,:D

    Adam sang "Mad World" (originally by Tears for Fears, I think?). It was perfect for his voice!

    Was I the only one who was weirded out by the lighting of Adam's song? Why was he kept in shadow the whole time? It was kinda strange. I'd rather see who is singing, instead of their silhouette.

    I didn't see Adam either because of my TIVO cutting off. I wonder if it will mess with the votes at all?

    Okay- Wow, I just watched it on Youtube. He is fabulous. That could be one of the best performances I've heard on there in a long time. He sang Mad Word by Tears for Fears.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRNpPSUMqKA

    Time ran out for AI too so Simon was the only one who spoke. He said something like the bad news is we are out of time so I will be the only one speaking. I don't think words are necessary so I am giving you a standing ovation. All the judges were standing up and they went right to the call line.

    Yes he did and you can see his performance here with the standing ovation. Just scroll down to where it says Adam Lambert - Mad World and you should see the link for the clip.

    I think I'm one of the few who didn't really like Adam's performance. I mean, vocally he's very good, but maybe I just don't like the song. "Tracks of My Tears" is still my all-time favorite performance of his, followed by "Black and White." He's miles away from the other contestants and I think he'll be Daughtry'ed so he can have freedom away from the American Idol title. I think they're pulling for Danny Gokey to become the Idol.

    I missed the beginning so I didn't see Danny or Kris. The others were all blah but I did like Matt tonight. I always get my hopes up during these kind of theme weeks when they have so many choices of songs and then most of them pick really dull songs to sing and it's such a letdown.

    Maybe Lil should go.

    I didn't like the lighting for Adam, either. Him sitting on a chair, in the half light, was weird.

    So now we have to DVR Idol and the show after Idol so as not to miss the last performance. I loved Adam, but I'm a former punk/goth chick - so it was perfect for my taste. I can't get the performance out of my head. The performance and the lighting were haunting and etched in my memory. True artistry.

    Vote off Lil. She's so experienced, yet she can't pick a song that suits her. It's perplexing because she should be a standout in this season.

    I love Adam!! Except his ring of fire song. He is different and that is what makes him!! I am always excited to see what he is going to do. I also like Matt and Chris.

    I have always liked Adam, but last night 'Mad World' really touched me for some reason--his rendition was unbelievable. He has amazing control of his voice. I agree, Special-t that it was haunting. I think the lighting was perfect for the style of the song.
    I think Scott or Lil will go home tonight-but Lil sure did look great last night.

    I don't think there is anything special about Lil and she picks terrible songs. I do think Adam is weird but still likable and really has a voice. I agree what Simon said about Allison that she's NOT likable. I have never liked her.

    Adam is incredible!
    Lil, Scott, Anoop, and Kris need to go...sorry Kris fans but he stunk last night. Seriously.
    I agree with what Paula and Simon said to Lil---there are many good singers on the show but we are looking for an artist. Adam is an artist. He can sing AND he creates artistry with his music. Amazing work!
    The others just sing. Blah. I can sing but I'm not an artist.

    Scott or Lil can go tonight. I wonder why Allison isn't likeable. She has a pretty face, a nice personality, and good vocals. Obviously doesn't have the experience that Adam has, but she's good.

    It's almost time for the elimination show. Anyone else watching from beginning to end or is it just me?
    Please, oh please let one of the horrible ones be sent home tonight and not someone good.
    I think Allison works hard to be polite and mature so she doesn't say the wrong thing. If you remember when Idol started this year, she was really goofy and silly in her comments and facial expressions. I think someone coached her to tone it down so she wouldn't mess up this opportunity. But yeah, the judges like contestants with a bit of attitude that is appropriate and not off color like stupid stupid Meagan. The entertainment people make so much fun of her "caw caw!!" sound with the flapping arms. She definitely left an impression. How could someone mess up a fantastic opportunity so bad?
