Idol: Songs from the Rat Pack Era

I was prepared for this night to be boring, because I am expecting these songs to be all slow and boring, and for the most part, I was right. Of course, all of the songs were ballads, and most of the contestants made them sound somewhat boring. But you have to remember, the contestants don’t pick the themes, so they are forced to pick the best songs out of a particular era. I am not sure why they chose this era, but I can promise that I will faithfully write my review. Below you will find my review and who I believe will be in the bottom three. Thanks for reading!

1. Kris
Song Choice: "The Way You Look Tonight"
Interesting song choice for him, and I think he will do it justice. He has a great voice and has great control over his vocals. I hope he goes far and really uses this show to start a music career for himself. He is someone I could hear on the radio, like a John Mayer kind of vibe. Good job tonight!

2. Allison
Song Choice: "Someone To Watch Over Me"
Another interesting song choice, but I think she will rock it. I know I say it a lot, but I can’t believe she is only 17 years old. She has such control and presence on that stage.
I think her version was a little boring, but you can tell she has major vocal ability. I really didn’t think she was going to pull that off, but it was pretty darn good! Great job tonight!
P.S. I love her dress!

3. Matt
Song Choice: "My Funny Valentine"
This will be a good week for Matt, and I am glad he chose this song. I am interested to see how he changes this one up. I don’t like the beginning. He doesn’t sound like himself. He isn’t performing as well as I expected him to. It's actually quiet boring, and I predict he will be in trouble this week. There were parts of that song that were not great, and I agree with Randy on the song not coming together.

4. Danny
Song Choice: "Come Rain or Come Shine"
Good song choice and Jamie was funny in his clip. I think Danny will do well on this song tonight, and I’m right cause he sounds great. Vocally he sounds great! One of his best performances so far in this competition!

5. Adam
Song Choice: "Feeling Good"
I’m interested to see what he does this week, and I am sure he will NOT do something slow and boring. Okay, so vocally he is good but in my opinion, he just comes off cocky, and I hate that. Also, I just want to point out that if he made a record, it would not get radio play. So therefore, I hate that the judges give him so much praise when he will be one of those contestants that ends up on Broadway (where I believe he belongs) and not on the radio. It's not that I don’t think he is talented. I just don’t think he is what American Idol is all about. So there, it took me some time to finally put into words why I don’t like him but there it is.

Bottom three: Matt, Allison (although I don't think she deserves to be in the bottom), Kris.

I'm thinking Matt will be going home, but I actually am not sure about that this week. I wouldn't be surprised if who I have as the bottom three is a little different. I think its a tough competition this year and each contestant has lots of fans. I cant wait to find out though!

Kris is not a "she," Andrea!!!! He is little and effeminate, but not a "she"!

I didnt call him a she. I was refering to Allison if you are talking about the bottom three. Sorry for the misunderstanding.

Lauren said...

haha yeah, sorry, i read that wrong. kris is a cute little man.

I think within the past few weeks my #1 choice has switched from Adam to Kris. I like when the contestants change up the arrangements and mold them to a better fit for themselves. Adam has been doing a great job with his arangements and fitting them into his style, but he needs to do something new and unexpected. David Cook is my all time favorite idol contestant and he did a lot of changing arrangements, and then as a surprise to everyone came out and sang "Music of the Night" from "Phantom of the Opera" with pretty much the original arrangement and it stunned everyone and was one of his best performances. Adam needs to shake things up like this and show us that he can handle different styles. Kris has been showing how much he can change a song into an arrangement that fits him, but also still do different styles of music. The difference between his movie night and disco night performances show his range of style pretty well. I still don't like Danny, he is boring and dull, and I don't understand why people like him as much as they do. I am happy to see Matt go home, he tries the bluesy stuff too much, and he was definitely flat through a lot of his song this week. I agreed with Randy as well with his views on Matt's performance, I was upset the judges saved him with the veto he deserved to go when he was voted off.
