Judges' Choice - To be honest, and no offence here, I didn't really care for the song choice. It was a fun song, he did have the energy, but to me it all felt similar and unspectacular. And about the dancing, it reminded me of Taylor Hicks again, lol.
Personal Choice - That was a fantastic song choice, beautiful song, beautiful lyrics. I agree that Danny really showcased his vocals but at the same time, I thought that he neglected the emotions of the song. While I'm impressed by his singing, I didn't really feel anything and it's a pity, the song is so beautiful. Oh, and I love Danny's husky tone.
Judges' Choice - Just as I expected, it wasn't a wise choice at all. While I agree that more than half of the songs sung on AI are very popular, I still think that it isn't wise to choose a song that is so new and still very fresh in everyone's memory. Unless the contestant really changes it up (like what Kris did with Heartless), it's almost impossible to impress. An example would be Matt G having done Viva la Vida. But back to Kris, he sounded strained and sound-alike. I disagree with Randy, Kris doesn't have a big voice. What he has is artistry.
Personal Choice - Well I actually almost flipped when I heard his song choice. For one, I don't like that song and for another, the same reason as above. But wow, I was really impressed with his rendition of the song! Yeah, that's what he should have done to Apologize, change it up and all. Really really loved what he did with this song, just put him back in the running for final two.
Judges' Choice - I loved that he put different touches to the entire song, starting it slow, then building it up. I thought it was a really intense and passionate performance, really enjoyed it. And LOL at Simon boo-ing Randy, lol. Adam's the only one whose song for the first round I prefer.
Personal Choice - I would have preferred him to do a slower number instead of another edgy song but does it matter? He did awesome as expected. Week after week he showcases his mad, mad range. I'm glad Simon made that point at the end of the show on not assuming that he's automatically making the final two. So America, please vote like mad for Adam, cos Kris and Danny's fans will be voting like mad after all the praises Adam has collected!
All in all, it was an enjoyable night of stellar performances. Yeah, we all know it's gonna be one of the hardest votes ever. And I'm thinking, the voting margin could end up being as close as that in season five. I don't care which of Kris or Danny makes it as long as Adam does. But if Danny makes it with Adam, it'll kinda be like last season. Danny's the Archuleta and Adam's the Cook. Lol.
VOTE FOR ADAM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
