THIS! Is American Idol! Top 7

It's Idol Night! Tonight the theme is "Songs of the Cinema" with the great Quentin Tarantino acting as Mentor this week. This theme can be a bit scary - Big songs, BIG shoes to fill and the talent isn't always there to support the expectations. We are down to an hour show, so the Judge's will be giving their opinions in teams tonight. I guess they learned their lesson last week! Let's get this thing going! **SPOILER ALERT** Come back later if you haven't watched and don't want to know!

Allison is first tonight. She chose "I don't want to miss a thing" by Aerosmith. LOVE this song! She can usually sang, so this should be good! Um, kind of a shaky start for me. Not my favorite performance by Allison. Paula thinks she has a special sauce, Simon thinks it's BBQ? Simon said he thought she was the girls' only hope left in the competition. No Vote for me.

Anoop chose "Everything I do, I do it for you" by Bryan Adams. LOVE this song too! Quentin suggests to him that he "rough it up" a bit. Anoop listened to him, and I LOVED IT! This was one of my favorites, EVER from Anoop Dawg. Randy said "WOW! Anoop Dawg you have found your zone!" And Kara thought this was his best performance to date. VOTE!

Adam is next and is singing "Born to be Wild" from Easy Rider. You never know what you are going to get with Adam. He's back with the spikier hair and manscara. And the screaming. I loathe the screaming. Paula babbled something, but I think she liked it, Simon didn't think it was as good as some of his performances have been. No Vote for me.

Matt is doing another Bryan Adams song. "Have you ever really loved a woman" is another of my favorites. So far I didn't need to worry about their song choices! Matt started out really good with this song, and then it just went downhill. Randy said he felt like Matt fell down more than he won, and Kara pretty much agreed. No vote for me.

MY FAVORITE, Danny is next. Danny bought a guitar this week. He's going to learn how to play while they are on tour this summer. And he chose one of my favorite songs of ALL TIME! "Endless Love" brings back all kinds of good memories for me. sigh I think Danny has some good memories too, because you could feel his emotion as he sang. I loved it. LOVED. IT. Paula thought he started out a bit off, but about midway he hooked it and slayed the end. Simon thought it was good, but he was disappointed that he didn't do anything different. I LOVED IT - VOTE

Kris picked a song from a movie I had never heard of. "Falling Slowly" was a perfect song for him. Maybe it was because I don't have anything to compare it to, but I thought this was WOW! Really good job! Randy didn't think it was quite it for him, but Kara thought it was one of his best moments ever. VOTE

Last up tonight is Lil. She chose "The Rose". Hmm. A little scared for her. This was actually a pretty good performance. Poor Lil has struggled and I think it is do or die for her and she is feeling the pressure. Paula thought it was a beautiful lyric. I'm still not sure she was complimenting Lil with that comment though. Simon said he was annoyed and Lil tried to defend herself but we were out of time. No vote for me.

Top 3 tonight for me are Anoop, DANNY and Kris.

In trouble are Allison, Matt and Lil. I think Matt or Lil go home.

What did you think? Let's discuss!

Manscara! Yes!!! Even better than eyeliner. I may steal that for next week... :)

I'm glad you loved all the song choices. Me, not so much. This wasn't my favorite night. Not by a mile...

Danny does it for me. I hope he wins the whole thing. I just like the passion he emotes...or emits....whatever.

I also appreciate that you actually vote. I'm one of those who watches and never votes.

Wow Sherri, love the new diggs. This is a new page isn't it?

I haven't got to post yet, my sweet daughter D is tired from new baby needs to eat 'round the clock and then can't sit still during the day blues. do you think that could be a song?

Love your recap, I agree, I think Lil should be in trouble, but I don't think she will go home. I think Kris is the most solid performer of the whole stinkin thing, as BooMama would put it, anyway, Adam is yes good but I. will. never. buy. his. music!

I feel a little better, thanks for the relief.

see ya :)

I love Danny and Kris. And Kris is becoming my fave. I've just decided I'm never going to like Adam.
great re-cap!
