American Idol - Season 8: Top 3

Tonight's American Idol is...Top Three Night!

Danny Gokey "Dance Little Sister" by Terence Trent D'Arby
Bad song choice (*eyes Paula) and a pretty ridiculous performance. Definitely one of his worst performances.

Kris Allen "Apologize" by OneRepublic
Great song choice, and although the performance was a bit lackluster, his vocals were very strong.

Adam Lambert "One" by U2
Nice song choice, but the arrangement was awful. Blame that on Simon. Lambert's vocals were still good.

Danny Gokey "You Are So Beautiful" by Joe Cocker
His best in awhile, but somewhere Taylor Hicks is laughing his ass off because his version was better.

Kris Allen "Heartless" by Kanye West
Best performance of the night and if he stays, it's because of this performance. Wow!

Adam Lambert "Cryin'" by Aerosmith
A nice little bitchslap to Gokey for trying to do Aerosmith. This is how you rock.

1. Kris "Heartless"
2. Adam "Cryin'"
3. Kris "Apologize"
4. Adam "One"
5. Danny "You Are So Beautiful"
6. Danny "Dance Little Sister"

Goodbye to...
Danny Gokey.

Put. The. Go. In. Gokey!

American Idol - Season 8: Top 4

Tonight's American Idol is...Rock!

Adam Lambert "Whole Lotta Love" by Led Zeppelin
Interesting song choice. Nice performance. Great way to start the week.

Allison Iraheta "Cry Baby" by Janis Joplin
Quite possibly her best in a long ass time. Wow. She nailed it.

Danny and Kris "Renegade" by Styx
Awful song choice and Danny did nothing but yell over Kris. Messy performance all over.

Kris Allen "Come Together" by The Beatles
Not his best, but it was good and it successfully erased Carly Smithson Hennessy's version from last year. Yay!

Danny Gokey "Dream On" by Aerosmith
Michael Johns called and he said efff you sir. Puppy Johns left with that song (not his best, but not the worst that night, ahem, VOCAL REST), and really it would be SWEET justice is the same happened to the Gokey.

Adam and Allison "Slow Ride" by Foghat
That was the best thing of the night. What a fantastic way to close the show. If Kris has to go, I hope this is what the finals will look like.

1. Adam/Allison
2. Allison
3. Kris
4. Adam
5. Danny/Kris
6. Danny

Bottom Two Predictions:
No sense in leaving us with a bottom three, so the bottom two will be Danny and Kris. This will be done purely to get Gokey's fans to have them all call in next week to push him past Allison.

Goodbye to...
Kris Allen. The bus came out tonight, but it wasn't as bad as the night it picked up Elliott Yamin or Jason Castro. Kris knew what was coming and the ONLY way he's escaping the bus, is if America refuses to push through Gokey's scream at the end of his song. Phew. Go Allison!
