It's an okay night for me, none that totally BLEW ME AWAY and none that were bad either. It'll be interesting as to who leaves.
Allison Iraheta - When I heard she was gonna do that song, I was like, "oh no, she'll probably be back in the bottom three again". But I thought she really put her own touch to this song, it's rare to hear a girl do it so well, with such heart and passion. I hope Simon's right in that she could go all the way, cos I really want her to!
Anoop Desai - It was heartfelt and soulful but I don't know, I feel like Anoop's losing his spark. He seems to be doing the same thing for a couple of weeks now. Wouldn't surprise me if he ends up in the bottom three.
Adam Lambert - This is one extreme guy. He's either shrieking away or being very toned down. But all in all, I loved the energy on stage and that was some mad, mad vocals. Doesn't matter if half of America is gonna hate it, he sure rocked that stage and he's gonna be totally fine.
Matt Giraud - I think Matt is trying too hard. He should've stuck to the original melody, stayed away from the piano and used that concentration he used on the piano to connect with the audience instead. Not to mention the pitchy notes here and there. I'm rather disappointed, he's been up and down and he could be in serious trouble tonight.
Danny Gokey - I don't think it's very important to change up a song like David Cook did last season, what's most important is putting the emotions in and he did it pretty well.
Kris Allen - Kris is back! But what's worrying me is that here's another contestant who's up and down. One week he's great, another he's not too good. But I think he should be fine, hmm.
Lil Rounds - I really expected much from her but at this stage of the competition when she's still not blowing us away, I'm pretty sure she'll be gone soon. It's not that her performance was bad, it was pretty good, but the thing about the competition is to have a moment and blow the audience away, which she hasn't done for the past 6 weeks. I hate to say this, but I doubt she's gonna find herself back in this competition again.

4. Anoop Desai
5. Danny Gokey
6. Lil Rounds
7. Matt Giraud
Predicted bottom three: Matt, Lil, (I'll go with Anoop)
I agree with Raymond, though, at this stage, it's getting so intense. And ultimately anyone else could take that third spot in the bottom three except for Danny and Adam. I won't even be surprised if Allison ends up there but I pray not. While I hope that Lil goes tonight, my gut tells me Matt. =(
