American Idol - Top 7

So I totally missed blogging last week. I didn't get to watch until Wednesday and by then, well, what's the point? I read lots of re-caps and honestly, right now I can't really remember anything that happened. Except that everybody missed Adam's performance because the judges (hello, Paula) were long-winded and they went long and THAT'S WHAT WE GET FOR DEPENDING ON A DVR.

Luckily my sweet husband was watching and recorded Fringe so that I could see Adam (um, thanks?) without scouring YouTube.

Tonight the theme is Songs From Movies and the mentor is, naturally, Quentin Tarantino. Seriously? What does he know from music? He makes movies and movies have music, therefore....he knows music. Okaaaay.

Nice. They are only letting 2 judges talk per contestant. We'll see how that goes.

Allison Iraheta - "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" I think this is a good choice for her. Great, great way to start the night. I loved it. Knocked it out of the PARK!

Anoop Desai - "(Everything I Do) I Do It For You" Quentin Tarantino giving him singing advice is seriously giving me a twitch. Oh goodness, I'm 18 again. Love me some Bryan Adams. I liked it. I really like his voice. Not sure what is up with that jacket though.

Adam Lambert - "Born To Be Wild" Back to rocker mode. I gotta hand it to him, that was a star performance right there. And you know how bad it hurts to say that, right?

They really just shouldn't let Paula talk. Simon, however, cracks me up.

Matt Giraud - "Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman" This seems like it will be a good song for him. I think I liked it better when it was just him and the piano. Ooo, that part near the end when his voice squeaked was bad and just off. Yikes, he might be in trouble this week.

Why is Simon making weird faces while Kara is talking? Is he 7?

Danny Gokey - "Endless Love" Ok, great, now I'm going to be watching his hands. I thought it was ok. A little rough in places actually. AND he lost his glasses. What's wrong with the world?

Oh the bright side, Michael and Lincoln are coming back FRIDAY! Glory!

Kris Allen - "Falling Slowly" It started out, um, slowly, but I really think he can do no wrong. I just love him. Wouldn't it be great if he sang some Chris Tomlin one night? Simon's head might explode.

Oh my word. Lil is singing "The Rose". WHO in the world is advising her? She is just singing herself right out of the competition.

Lil Rounds - "The Rose" To quote my sister-in-law, I just don't think she's as good a singer as she thinks she is. She's pitchy and she's putting in too many riffs and changing the melody too much. How's that for some opinions?

In trouble this week: Lil and Matt

Next week, Songs About Animals with mentor, Lassie. Y'all come!


*Edited to Add: Y'all I just read this post about Idol and it totally cracked me up. Girlfriend is hilarious!!

I too am wicked excited about Michael and Linc coming back on Friday. Next to Adam's performance, that commercial was the highlight of the show for me.

I would so LOVE to hear Kris sing some Chris Tomlin and watch Simon's head explode!!! You know it would! I have seen some video from Kris' church of him singing that new song "God of this city" and it is PHENOMENAL. I pray that boy makes a praise and worship album at some point!!

Simon's faces were cracking me up last night! I am so over Lil and I think it's her time to go. I think Matt might be in trouble too, but I don't want him to go home yet!

I totally agree! Kris could tear up some Chris Tomlin...
