American Idol - Season 8: Top 8

Tonight's American Idol is...songs from the year you were born!

Danny Gokey "Stand By Me" by Mickey Gilley
Do. Not. Like. I thought no one could eff up "Stand By Me" more than Archie did last year. I was wrong.

Kris Allen "All She Wants to Do Is Dance" by Don Henley
Bad song, but Kris tried his best to change it up. Didn't work.

Lil Rounds "What's Love Got To Do With It" by Tina Turner
Only one I predicted correctly. And it should have been awesome...but it wasn't. And I have sadly come to the conclusion...Lil is worse than Syesha "Vocal Rest" Mercado. *ducks

Anoop Desai "True Colors" by Cyndi Lauper
Very nice. Agree with Simon, not the best, but a very good job.

Scott MacIntyre "The Search Is Over" by Survivor

Allison Iraheta "I Can't Make You Love Me" by Bonnie Raitt
Love the song, but I'm not sure if it was right for Allison. Her vocals were fine, but I still prefer Kimberly Locke's version (what is it with her and doing old Idol songs?).

Matt Giraud "Part-Time Lover" by Stevie Wonder
All memories of Kevin Covais doing this one have been erased. Thank God.

Adam Lambert "Mad World" by Tears for Fears
Simon has NEVER stood up for anyone. Damn.

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

Bottom Three Predictions:
Kris, Scott and Lil. I pray that Kris is safe (this was his first bad week), so that it's Scott vs Lil.

Goodbye to...
Scott MacIntyre. Not only will they finally ditch him, but it will also scare Lil's fans to wake-up (ditto Lil). But I also worry that somebody good might leave. 8th place has been where somebody bad finally leaves (Haley Scarnato, Bucky Covington, Jon Peter Lewis, Rickey Smith, A.J. Gill) or a semi-shock boot to an early favorite (Michael Johns, Nadia Turner). Please let it be the former and not the latter (which would mean Kris, Anoop or Matt are in trouble).
