Allow me to take a break from my current series of posts to comment on tonight’s AI (that’s why most of you read this little ol’ blog anyway, isn’t it?):
Allison – MAJOR pitch problems! What were Paula and Simon smoking? Was she ever ON pitch?
Anoop – Quite good this week, I thought. Consistently in tune (in contrast to Allison) and actually an engaging performance. Pleasantly surprised.
Adam Lambert – I disagreed with Simon. The song is “Born to be Wild,” and the rendition was appropriately wild. Vocals reminded me of Axl Rose, and that’s a compliment coming from me.
Matt Giraud – Sounded like he was auditioning for the annual talent show at my old high school. Really painful to watch and even more painful to listen to.
Danny Gokey – Well, the harpist did well. She should progress to the next round. Danny, not so much. Eek.
Kris Allen – Hated the song. The vocals were good, I thought, but I still hated the song. Still think he should go to the next round. He sang better than Allison, Matt, Danny and Lil (see below). He still gets my vote (along with Adam).
Lil Rounds – I liked her at first. Now I can’t remember why. If I were Amanda McBroom I would be offended at this moment. Just bad taste.
