American Idol - Season 8: Top 9

Tonight's American Idol is...some effed up mash-up of something they like to call "top downloads" theme. W...T...F!?

Anoop Desai "Caught Up" by Usher
Usher? Are you kidding me? So-so performance that left me pretty cold. Boo.

Megan Corkery "Turn Your Lights Down Low" by Bob Marley and Lauryn Hill
Well, she's just going to continue to butcher every single one of my favorite songs.

Danny Gokey "What Hurts the Most" by Rascal Flatts
Well, if anyone should be accused of SHOUTING the song, it's him. The bad thing is that, everyone else sucked tonight, so his was better when you realized how much everyone else ate it.

Allison Iraheta "Don't Speak" by No Doubt
So our conclusion should be...no one should ever do this one. I believe someone else did this on Idol before and sucked (Chris Richardson! *sigh) but anyways. Allison should have rocked this out and it just looked messy. *sadface

Scott MacIntyre "Just the Way You Are" by Billy Joel
Aaand this is why this theme blows. Really? Who's been downloading this? Safe song makes him do well with his limited range, but otherwise...*snore

Matt Giraud "You Found Me" by The Fray
Well, this was the one everyone (myself included) thought he would do and while it was fine, it could have been a lot better if he had gone with The Fray's other hit, "Over My Head" (and dammit, Randy was right. "Apologize" would been a hot one!).

Lil Rounds "I Surrender" by Celine Dion
Well...at least it wasn't Whitney or Mariah. But, what another bore from someone who did so well in the auditions stages. *grumble

Adam Lambert "Play That Funky Music" by Wild Cherry
I'm a bit surprised the judges didn't throw the "over-indulgent" line with Adam. Because, truthfully, that's what it was. His vocals were okay, but that song, ugh. What a waste of a week.

Kris Allen "Ain't No Sunshine" by Bill Withers
Okay, by accident, I heard the version that Christina Christian did on season one yesterday and I thought to myself, it sucks that no one else has attempted this, because as good as it was, Christina was not that strong of a singer. But Kris Allen is. I think he just made himself one to officially watch. Good for him.

1. Kris
2. Matt
3. Adam
4. Danny
5. Allison
6. Lil
7. Scott
8. Anoop
9. Megan

Bottom Three Predictions:
Megan, Scott and Allison. Scott will be safe again (argh) and this will force to ditch another girl. Megan vs Allison...

Goodbye to...
Megan Corkery. I think they've just had enough of her. Yes, they want to push their WildCards, but there is only so much they can do here. Allison's fans will get another wake-up call (and hopefully, Allison as well).
