Season 8's True American Idol
Adam Lambert once again proved why he’s the true American Idol from Season 8. Kris Allen’s a nice guy, but he will never electrify a stage like Adam. Adam is one daring performer. He makes those really high screeching notes sound effortless, but, trust me, they’re not. You gotta have confidence that your voice won’t crack, because if it does, you end up sounding like a doofus. Adam nailed those notes in “Whataya Want From Me”, making it the highlight of the evening.
My big question is, “Who told Justin Gaston he could sing?” (Probably his ex Miley Cyrus. Like she’s an expert on singing.) On the other hand, Brooke White sounded better than she ever did when she competed on Season 7. The producers should’ve just let her do a solo. As it was their duet on “If I Can Dream” was a nightmare.
I can’t brag too much about being correct in my prediction that Andrew Garcia and Katie Stevens would be the ones getting a ticket home. Based on their performances, they were the obvious choices. But, you never know with AI voters. It was heartening to hear that Michael Lynche wasn’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
