Season 8's True American Idol
Adam Lambert once again proved why heâ€™s theÂ true American IdolÂ from Season 8.Â Kris Allenâ€™s a nice guy, but he will never electrify a stage like Adam.Â Adam is one daring performer.Â He makes those really high screeching notes sound effortless, but, trust me, theyâ€™re not.Â You gotta have confidence that your voice wonâ€™t crack, because if it does, you end up sounding like a doofus.Â Adam nailed those notes in â€śWhataya Want From Meâ€ť, making it the highlight of the evening.
My big question is, â€śWho told Justin Gaston he could sing?â€ťÂ (Probably his ex Miley Cyrus.Â Like sheâ€™s an expert on singing.)Â On the other hand, Brooke White sounded better than she ever did when she competed on Season 7.Â The producers shouldâ€™ve just let her do a solo.Â As it was their duet on â€śIf I Can Dreamâ€ť was a nightmare.
I canâ€™t brag too much about being correct in my prediction that Andrew Garcia and Katie Stevens would be the ones getting a ticket home.Â Based on their performances, they were the obvious choices.Â But, you never know with AI voters.Â It was heartening to hear that Michael Lynche wasnâ€™t even in the Bottom 3 after being saved last week.
Here are my rankings as we go into the round of 7:
- Crystal Bowersox
- Casey James
- Lee Dewyze
- Siobhan Magnus
- Michael Lynche
- Aaron Kelly
- Tim Urban
