Had a skull-crushing migraine all day today, but TubaDad is in New York on a business trip so I just had to suck it up. After I-don't-even-want-to-admit-how-many meds, it finally loosened up around 5pm. Good thing too, because it's American Idol night and I need to be able to watch tv. Heh. Around this time in every AI season, by the way, I start to get a little sad that the show is almost over. And tonight was no exception. Alrighty, on with the show! Slash as the mentor -- interesting choice. I have to say I'm an old-time fan of Guns 'N Roses, although Slash never did anything for me. Adam singing Led Zeppelin's Whole Lotta Love: His eyes look a little demonic with that makeup. Ok, he sounds good, but I was kind of hoping he'd sing a mellow old rock song and just kick the crap out of it. It's too obvious of a choice that he sang a screamer song, if you ask me. But he did nail it. The boy has pipes. Wow, Kara sure loves him, doesn't she? Is she single or something? Hmmmm. Allison singing Janis Joplin's Cry Baby: Seems like she's holding back somehow, I wonder if her voice is hurting her a little bit or something. Horrible lipstick, by the way. Ok, the song: well, it just didn't grab me. I think my love for Allison is gone, gone, gone. Kris and Danny in a duet singing Styx's Renegade: I've always loved this song! I give this one to Kris, he sounded way more natural than Danny. Are we supposed to pick one over the other? Oh well, I am. Both guys were good. I didn't like Kris' little yodel at the end. Kris singing the Beatles' Come Together: I don't see him as a "rocker dude," in any way, shape, or form. Do you? Not a good fit tonight. Bleck. I've liked him in all the other genres, maybe he could have picked a rock ballad or something and sounded great? Oh well. Danny singing Aerosmith's Dream On: Oh my, I'm not sure he's up to an Aerosmith song... let's see. Oh, good start, a pretty soft touch for an Aerosmith song, which I actually kinda like. Hey I think he's doing a good job. Very pleasantly surprised! Oooo, wince, the scream part—didn't like that at all, not at all. That didn't do my migraine any favors. The rest of it was nice and kind of gravelly and good. Hm, the judges didn't like it at all, not sure I agree with them. Aside: It looks like Kara is wearing tiny condoms for earrings! Did anyone else see those things? Allison and Adam in a duet singing Fog Hat's Slow Ride: Allison still seems like she's only singing at 3/4 power. She looks cute though. Adam sounded good and looked like he was really enjoying himself. And I was just thinking thank goodness they paired Allison and Adam and didn't try to make Danny or Kris sing with one of them, or it would have been a train wreck. These two are really going to have fun on the AI tour, aren't they? Um, ok, I know my mother reads this blog and all, but I just have to point out that Adam really has absolutely no butt. It might have been a bad costume choice or something, but I hit rewind and checked and nope, nothing there. Ok, my rankings for the evening are... (I went back and forth and all over the place with these, really any of the top 3 could have been switched, I am just that wishywashy about them all at this point. I actually wrote it the first time with Danny in the #1 spot but then changed it completely. Argh, just going to hit publish and leave it at that, I don't think I'm even going to vote tonight. Can I vote for Chris Daughtry again? *grin*): 1. Adam 2. Allison 3. Danny 4. Kris What did you think?
