Well I was disappointed when the show started off, with total wrong choices and all that, but I'm just glad it picked up. With the ratio of guys to girls in the competition, it's not surprising that the guys rule again.
Anoop Desai - It was a totally wrong song choice. It sounded dead in my opinion. The beats and everything were so strong and energetic but Anoop was just coasting through the entire song, staying on the surface and never really GETTING INTO it. It was too safe and forgettable.
Megan Joy - She needs to start picking the right songs! That was a totally boring and draggy performance. She doesn't need a chair, she needs to connect and really get into her performance, not pick such forgettable songs. I think she's in serious trouble tonight.
Danny Gokey - I thought he started off a little rough and pitchy, but it's one of my favourite performances of the night. Very emotional.
Allison Iraheta - I loved the front, but it got a little too overdone from the middle onwards, and it's a pity. Interesting hairdo, and I never knew she could play the guitar. It was a nice change, but she could be in trouble tonight as well.
Scott MacIntyre - He FINALLY picked a song that blew! Just love how he stripped it down, just him and the piano, that totally moved me. Another one of my favourite performances. Very heartfelt, awesome!
Matt Giraud - Another song choice gone wrong. For once I'm agreeing with Paula, it sounded too like the original. Totally not a clever decision to make after being in the bottom two last week. But I hope he stays.
Lil Rounds - Was expecting her to blow me away tonight but once again, was a little disappointed. She certainly can sing but she did not sound original. But it doesn't matter, she'll be safe. What's most important is she sang from her heart, and I felt it.
Adam Lambert - This guy is the one to watch, honestly. Wasn't my favourite performance, but I loved it all the same. He had so much fun, I'm sure the audience had fun too. Yeah, I love the Elvis hair lol.
Kris Allen - I was indeed surprised. My favourite performance of the night. So nice to see him behind the keyboard, singing so sincerely. I really, really like Kris, he's so humble and sincere and could very well be a dark horse of the competition. He's been doing very well so far, very surprised and pleased.
