This thread is awesome!!!

I didn't think anyone but me didn't like Danny! :D

Adam, Allison and Kris have been my favourites since the start but everyone goes crazy for Danny and he just annoys the crap out of me :help:

I want a DVD of all of Adam's performances this year :hearts:

I agree with you Peta, I like Adam, Kris and Allison and wish Danny would have gone the heck home. I still have my doubts they will let Adam win, we'll just have to see what happens.

We try :D The Roddick forum has had an Idol thread for years but they are not Adam fans, which is why we have become a safe haven for lovers of the most talented person to ever even be on American Idol (in my opinon ;) )

Adam :worship:

That is awful! How dare they deprive you of this! The Adam studio versions of the songs are just :inlove: and then the performance videos :hearts:

Yesssss :D I loved their duet. They are so adorable. At least there is still Kris-Adam adorableness. But the three of them were so cute because they actually all were in the same group of the top 36 ;) So they've been together a long time :awww: this is where Kris-Adam's bro-mance started since they have been roommates SINCE THEN.I love their BFF-ness and how they both so clearly dislike Gokey :rolls:

I wonder if Gokey had any friends :awww: another reason AI should have let Jamar through. Although to be honest, why is Jamar friends with Gokey IRL? Jamar is waaaaay too cool :rolls:

We're so happy to have another Adam fangirl.

Yes! The more the merrier! :D



Plus EVEN MORE makeup than usual. :lol:


Yessssss. This week I was like "YAY THE EYELINER IS BACK IN FULL FORCE".

So who are you loving?
Kris is my favourite. I really like his voice (even though it might not be the strongest, it just has a nice sound to it! :lol: ) and he seems to be a really nice, genuine guy. I also like that he plays instruments. :D

Actually, the first week I really watched was Motown week and I LOVED Tracks of my Tears so Adam was probably my favourite to start with. I think he has an amazing voice. :dance: I just don't like it so much when he goes really over the top. :shrug: although that might be more to do with not being a massive fan of some of the songs (like play that funky music), I don't know. I do like how he is creative and original though. He should definitely be in the final. As for Danny, I think he has a nice voice but that's about it, I find him quite samey and a little bit boring. I think he was horrific this week, that last note/scream/whatever it was will haunt me for years to come! :o

sorry, that was a really long answer to a seemingly simple question! :o

Well there was one video I watched where Adam is talking to some fangirl and Gokey says something stupid and Adam like... glares at him. And then just the atmosphere around them. Like when Kris was safe and he hugs Adam and Allison and makes no motion to rejoice with Danny. Even after their duet, I mean, it just didn't feel like they enjoyed working together. :shrug:

Let me try to find this Gokey vid :D

I agree that Kris has a very pleasant voice. There just doesn't seem to be a place for non-screamers on AI. Plus, Kris is very handsome. He has a face and a mouth that you could watch forever. I don't even care what he says, I just like to watch his mouth move. :)

I dunno -- maybe I'm projecting, but it seems that they are always hugging and talking and Gokey is the outsider. Like the way Kris gave Adam and Allison a big hug when he was safe, but Gokey got no hug. I don't think they hate him or anything, but he doesn't seem to be part of their little love fest with one another.

I actually meant what do you think the reason for it is (rather than what makes you think that! ;) ). so there hasn't been a particular incident or anything that I've missed, just a clash of personalities maybe? my livestream froze during the hug last night so I didn't see Kris blank Danny but he didn't seem too happy during their duet (especially when Simon said that Danny was better! :o )

Kris's mouth is a bit quirky but I quite like it, it adds to his cuteness! :) kind of like Milo Ventimiglia, his mouth is a bit lopsided but I still love him. :hearts:

Oh :rolls:

Probably a clash of personalities... possibly also Danny might not *approve* of Adam's "lifestyle" since Danny is like... super churchy and stuff *guessing*. I think maybe also since the beginning of this season, Gokey and Adam have been the front-runners. I think in the first week already Paula was telling them they'd be in the final. So it could be a rivalry type thing :shrug: I don't know... :lol:

Mmmm Milo Ventimiglia. I also have a fascination with Paolo Nutini's mouth. Or maybe just his lips. :rolls:

ok, I didn't realise Gokey was churchy, I guess that could cause problems if he's the type of person to voice his opinions. It surprises me with Kris because he seems really laid back but maybe it's because he's good friends with Adam or something. who knows. :lol:

I love Paolo Nutini, more for his music than his lips though. :rolls: although I get where you're coming from! ;)

I don't think it's the Christian thing because Kris has quite the churchy background too. I think it's just that Gokey is sort of self obsessed and awkward on occasion. But Allison said she was going to miss him on her interview with EW. or E! or something. I think they just didn't develop that same closeness with him.

A devout Christian, Gokey started singing with his family in church, but stated he would rather record mainstream music than perform solely contemporary Christian music. He has been the worship director at his church in Milwaukee, Faith Builders International Ministries, for several years.[3] He has four sisters and a brother.[4] On May 15, 2004 Gokey married his girlfriend of 7 years, Sophie Martinez.[5]

*dead wife info cut*

Gokey has acknowledged the influence of Jeffrey and Robin Pruitt, the pastors of the church he works at, and said his faith is "key to who I am."[11]

;) It doesn't matter if someone is more church related or not, it really depends on how you take it. Some people can be very religious and very accepting, and some people can't. To me, at least outwardly, Danny strikes me as someone a bit more judgmental :shrug:

Yeah. Except it's probably the kiss of death. The main complaint I hear about him is that he already thinks he's won and he acts like it and he's cocky.

I don't think he acts like that at all, because I think he keeps trying to come up with great performances.. he isn't playing it safe or anything :awww: and also he doesn't seem very cocky to me. He doesn't talk back to the judges at all, he never disagrees with them, he seems to appreciate their comments and he always THANKS them :shrug: Bah, maybe I am biased to him but I think he seems like a sweetheart :rolls: Confident, but not at an annoying level.

It's like... why I hated Melinda Doolittle in season's past. I hated her whole " :eek: you think I'm good? :eek: " act that she'd play every week, pretending she was surprised at the good comments :shrug: Adam knows he does a good job, but I don't think there's anything wrong with that. Better than fake humility :shrug:

There's this guy I work with who is a Gokey fan -- but I can totally see why he is. I don't think he ever reads a book; he can only talk about himself or pro basketball. Nice guy, but not a lot of depth. Anyway, he has never liked Adam -- not to the point of hating, but Adam just rubs him the wrong way. He says that Adam just acts like he's better than the other people and acts like he has it sewn up. Well, of course, I've never been known to just smile and nod when I have strong opinions, so I said that I just saw Adam standing there and respectfully listening to the judges -- unlike Gokey who smirks and talks and completely acts like he is safe.

I can't hate anyone who can sing like Melinda. But, I was brought up in a household that valued modesty -- maybe to a fault, so I understood why she was the way she was. So, naturally her modesty didn't seem fake to me. She was so humble that it probably hurt her. But, it's a fine line -- the contestants have to project confidence while not appearing cocky. I think Adam walks that line very well. But, also the contestants have to be authentic. It wouldn't be natural if Kris shed his naturally modest demeanor.

EDIT: Damn -- I used the word "just" in that post like -- 33 times. :rolleyes:

After the visit, Gokey said he's struggled with song selection on "Idol."

"I've always done gospel music and I don't know much about the music outside of that realm," he said. "Literally every song I pick, I'm learning. I don't know what to pick and song choice has been the most difficult thing for me, and it only gets harder as it goes."

I got my Adam cover EW today :hearts:

For free essentially because the cashier was dumb :p And I know I work in retail and *should* be sympathetic and tell these people when they don't scan all my items, but I think it's *because* I work in retail that I don't. And as a manager, if my register is short because the girl scans things wrong, I wouldn't blame the CUSTOMER, it would be the girl's fault for being dumb :shrug:

So I walked out of B&N today with a EW, On the Road by Jack Kerouac, and a selection of Emily Dickenson poems for...... $4.23. When she told me that total, if she was not completely stupid, shouldn't that have just SEEMED WRONG? :rolls: And this is why I did not inform her of her mistake.

Maybe this makes me a bad person :shrug: oh well :)

I don't really see that style being anything he can work with :unsure: It's mellow but not in way of Mad World mellow which is like Adam's style of mellow... it's mellow in an un-Adam way.

I'm rewatching all of Adam's performances (since I bought them all :tape: ) and I'm trying to decide which is actually my favorite :rolls: I think the one thing about Adam that really strikes me, when comparing him to basically any Idol contestant ever, is that he really knows how to work the stage. In the early rounds of the top 12/13 the people who go first are always people who are on stage just singing, and not performing ;) And he has alwaaaaaays been performing :worship: on a lot of seasons it takes contestants a while to grow into being a performer, but Adam was like that from the start, which I think is why I got sucked into him so easily.

I shall possibly rank my Adam performances later :rolls: if I can even possibly decide which is my least favorite :rolls:

Okay starting with the top 13 (so not including Satisfaction), I've decided my order of Adam is this:

2. Whole Lotta Love.
3. If I Can't Have You.
4. Tracks of My Tears. Even if he does have Zac Efron in Hairspray hair.
5. Feeling Good. I love the studio version, but the performance is only falling about here.
6. Born to Be Wild. He looked good this week though.
7. Mad World. Meh, I listened to the Gary Jules version so much when I was an emo teenager that while I think he did a very good job, this does nothing for me :lol:
8. Black and White. I like it, but it was early and he wasn't into full Adam force yet. Also he's not wearing eyeliner.

From a USA Today article...

To re-energize, Lambert says he hangs out in his room listening to mood music by Thievery Corporation, takes kava-kava homeopathic supplements and texts instead of calls to save his voice.

He and Kris have been roommates, and a friendship has formed. "Danny and me? Well, we're really different," says Lambert softly. "On everything. So we often agree to disagree."

Kris was the best of the night for me, that 2nd song shows why he deserves to be at the finale. I didn't like the two songs Adam sang and Gokey was just Gokey (I hope he goes home tomorrow).

:hug: :hug: I like Kris too. I think he's not so much of an entertainer, but he's very cute and rarely hits a wrong note. I think Kris love is welcome. I think he has rapidly gained in popularity as Adam and Danny grind each other down. He stands out from either of them.

Just don't go gokey on us. :lol:

Kris did well. Danny didn't suck -- sadly.

But I think it's neck and neck. Adam really needed to astound, and that's a lot to ask because he had to do even more and he sang Aerosmith! :bigcry: :bigcry: Although he was lovely on "One."


If it's Kris and Adam in the final, I would be ok if Kris won. Adam is launched into whatever world he wants to inhabit now. From his interviews on the itouch app, he appears to have a slightly self destructive bent -- he says things about you have to alienate some people or you aren't pushing the limits -- something like that, and although I agree, it's not good to alienate on purpose, so I hope he doesn't go down that road.

Anyway, I ramble.

Really? I thought he was very clever on his Heartless rearrangement and his voice sounded good. I thought Apologize was not what it might have been. A bit muddled -- and I know this shouldn't count, but his piano playing isn't really good. I was sort of feeling badly for him when they showed his hands. But, really that shouldn't count.

What cracked me up was that the judges ragged on him for not playing his guitar instead of the piano, and he just had to stand there and take it knowing that his plan was to play the guitar on the next song.

And I loved the way his eyes sort of glazed over while Paula was talking.

But really the judges' high jinks are deplorable. What the heck? Shut up already and stop bickering. I blame Kara and those who put her there. :(

And wtf putting her hands over Simon's mouth -- like really, really tight. :unsure: But, bad on Simon for taking a pot shot at her during his comments.

Maybe it's better without that guy who played Captain Kirk.

Plus the preachy story lines. :rolleyes:

I can't stand Captain Kirk (William Shatner) either. :p That's why I don't like the original series. But TNG with Captain Jean Luc Picard (Patrick Stewart) :inlove: and Commander Riker (Johnathan Frakes) are much better. :dance:
Noooo I LOVE the original series best. I have both seasons of the original series on DVD :hearts: Captain Kirk was my favourite. I'm a bit of a Star Trek fan, love the originals and Voyager :hearts:

I'm going to see this new movie in 2 weeks. Would have been this weekend except I'm flying to Queensland on Friday for a wedding on a boat :hearts: (just wish I wasn't going all that way just for 2 days).

.... but are you still? :unsure: that is what matters. I mean, I liked him at the start of the season too, but then the doucheyness came out. :unsure:

I like you, so I don't want to have to punish you :awww: :p
I never liked Gokey. Right from the first time I heard him I thought his voice had something I really hated. I hate that the judges kiss his arse every week even though he's totally shit.
oooooh judges fight!! fight fight fight fight fight!!!

i'm like 3 hours late aren't I :lol:
I hate that I'm even later. I wish I was on when it was being shown live! I just had to read about 50 pages :lol:

THEN I forgot to watch the start and missed the 1st performances of Gokey and Kris. Thank goodness Adam was 3rd so I get both of his :) Unfortunately I reeeeally dislike 'One'. I wish he'd sung a song I liked more :)

Gokey put me to sleep with his "vocal masterpiece" *vomit*

About to watch Kris with Heartless :)

Kara is stupid. Really she needs to go. And I know there are rumors of Simon leaving. If Simon leaves, end the show, because the other three have no clue wtf they are saying and offer nothing interesting or constructive :shrug: Oh gosh the pain of having to sit through judges comments when it's just Randy, Kara, and Paula. I'd turn the mute button on until they were done.

That is true, but then even after Kris did the second song, stupid Kara was like "SEE THATS WHAT WE WANTED! WHY DIDN"T YOU DO THAT FOR APOLOGIZE" :smash: stupid Kara

It goes without saying that Gokey was the weakest link once again. Go home Gokey!!!

I have the feeling that putting Kara in the judge panel is to entertain us with her stupidity. Paula is to enforce the clueless image of some women. Simon, of course, for his meanness but right to the point comment. And Randy is just Randy :p

At least Paula knows how to raise her arm without the full on armpit. Seriously tired of her armpit.


Here's from Rushfield at the LAT. Kris fans, hang in there til the last paragraph. :)

The fact of the matter is that after the journey's end, they [the three finalists] stood standing, exhausted, bloodied and broken but still awaiting judgment by our ultimate arbiter; the 10- to 12-year-old girls of America who having openly declared their dictatorship at the beginning of this season, seem determined to toy with us by prolonging their indecision until the last moment. Although our tween overlords rarely expose themselves to on-the-record interviews, all my research suggests that they still have not broken clearly for any of the three remaining singers. And as America sleeps, they will quietly cast the ballots that will decide our fate.

(Note to those readers who in the comments have pointed to David Cook’s victory as a sign that the tween stranglehold was broken: the great unreported story of last season was how in the final weeks a huge portion of the tweens defected from Archuleta to the Cook camp.)

Credit for this cliffhanger state, however, must also clearly be given to one man who has been in his quiet way, the truly inspirational story of this season. No one saw Kris Allen coming, no one expected him to get this far. But week after week, taking the stage in his quiet, humble way without fanfare or hoopla, he has risen to every challenge until tonight, at this exalted stage of the race, he left many saying he had delivered the very best performance on the last night in the Idoldome.

Here are selections from Slezak at EW.

Idol's producers have officially lost sight of the fact that it's the vocal performances of a merry band of superstar wannabes, and not the self-impressed blatherings of a panel of has-beens and never-wases, that keep their show's engine purring.

Think I'm being overly harsh? Let's flash back to Top 3 night on Season 7, when we got a whopping nine performances. We had David Cook tackling ''The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face,'' ''Dare You to Move,'' and ''I Don't Want to Miss a Thing,'' David Archuleta attempting ''And So It Goes,'' ''With You,'' and ''Longer,'' and Syesha Mercado pulling out ''If I Ain't Got You,'' ''Fever,'' and that song by the animated penguins. Granted, the ''Producers' Choice'' round of 2008 did not yield stellar results — Armageddon love theme + Dan Fogelberg schlock + Happy Feet album cut = a sudden and terrifying urge to grab the remote and find out about this thing called NCIS) — but did Idol's producers really think it was cool to leave us with only six performances and a few seconds' worth of hometown visit footage on which to choose our finale participants? Especially on a night where if Kara's combined critiques had been tossed in the dumpster, Adam, Kris, and Danny would've almost had time to respectively perform ''Paradise by the Dashboard Light,'' ''Alice's Restaurant,'' and ''American Pie'' in their entirety.

****

I have to be honest, the first thing that went through my mind tonight as Kris announced he was tackling a Kanye West song was this: ''He took a bold risk, and it paid off.'' But those thoughts were solely focused on the Arkansas native's daring, glittery shirt, which looked like it had dashed over from Maksim Chmerkovskiy's wardrobe at the goofy dancing show that's housed next door to Idoldome. (Which reminds me: There won't be an On the Scene at Idol report on PopWatch today, but fret not: Adam B. Vary will be back in business tonight, and filing his typically juicy in-the-studio observations on PopWatch on Thursday morning.) Right on the heels of my fashion flight of fancy, though, my next thought was a less enthusiastic, ''Kris covering Kanye? Please don't let this be a hot wreck!''

Well, my suspicions were half right. ''Heartless'' wasn't just ''hot,'' it was, to recall a popular season-7 Randy-ism, a molten-hot lava bomb! Like I'd suggested on Tuesday's edition of Idolatry, Kris' only chance to crack the final two was to ditch the aggressive Idol band and perform either acoustically or a capella, to have a Bo Bice-ian ''In a Dream''-type moment. And you could tell from Kris' sly grin going into the final chorus, he achieved exactly what he set out to do musically, making the words of Kanye's composition come to life in a way they never could through the cold filter of a vocoder.

Perhaps just as important as the triumph of ''Heartless'' as a solitary performance, though, was the fact that it helped dispel two silly myths about Kris that have lingered through much of season 8. First is the fallacy of Kris' supposed lack of a killer instinct, a squishiness that Simon has contended makes him unfit to wear the Idol crown, and which was reiterated several times tonight by Ryan during interview packages. But au contraire, what kind of stones does it take to cover a song that not only climbed to No. 2 on Billboard's chart within the last year, but was performed by the original artist right there on the Idol stage during a results-night telecast only two months prior? Kris doesn't need to tell us he has swagger when he's up there on the stage proving it in bold-faced, all-cap letters — Kanye style! Secondly, there's the myth that would have us dismiss Kris' voice as a reedy trifle — a myth that Simon continued to hammer home on Fox News' Fox and Friends on Monday by insisting that Kris isn't a good enough singer to compete with Adam, and that only an Adam-Danny finale will work for TV. To which I say, if there was a flaw in Kris' pitch on ''Heartless,'' if his big notes lacked support, or his phrasing lacked originality, I defy you to prove it. Which did not stop Simon, even while praising Kris's vocal, from referring back to Kris' first performance, and sneaking in the phrases ''lame song choice'' and ''written you out of this competition.''

But trying to convince Simon that ''good'' and ''enormous'' don't have to be one and the same would be like trying to teach Kara the inner workings of the show on which she's a judge. Did she really ask ''Why didn't you do that with 'Apologize'?'' after Kris finished ''Heartless''? Oh, yeah, because dude would've really shown his versatility by doing back-to-back stripped-down arrangements on the same night? (Side note: Yes, The Fray does an acoustic version of ''Heartless.'' No, it doesn't remotely sound like Kris' rendition. And guess what? Kris's is vastly superior!) Moving on...

****

Adam Lambert and the Backup Singer from Hell, ''Cryin'' Imagine you're at work, and one of your colleagues decides to shadow your every move, mimicking your words, your motions, your every action. (Actually, if, like me, you're a fan of ABC's Better Off Ted, then you've witnessed this scenario in sitcom format.) That's kind of what happened to Adam as he navigated his way through the soaring chorus of what Kara still probably thinks is an ''early Aerosmith'' ballad, hounded at every step by a ''supporting'' vocalist who kept trying to outwit, outlast, and eventually consume whole the melody Adam was throwing down. But as with many of Adam's best performances, by the end, I found myself laughing and clapping along. Whether or not you ''get'' Adam, I think you have to admire the sheer audacity of what he tries to create each week on the Idol stage. The risks and liberties he takes with melodies are extravagant in the extreme: If vocal performances were bank heists, George Clooney, Brad Pitt, & Co, could take notes on Adam for their climactic scene in Ocean's Fourteen. This one moved Kris' family to their feet — before Adam said anything about how it was an honor to share the stage with the two other remaining finalists.

Kris Allen and the Oddly Positioned Piano, ''Apologize'' Wait! Press pause, please. Was that chipped, blue nail polish on Kris' thumb when he got the text telling him Kara and Randy had picked One Republic's ''Apologize'' as his Judges' Choice slot? (Sorry, I'm in Ryan mode...the burning urge to keep it shallow and frivolous became all-consuming for a moment.) And how come Kris' piano was positioned in a way that made it almost impossible for the camera crew to get a direct and flattering shot of his face? And do I need to quit it already with the ''Idol is out to sabotage Kris'' conspiracy theories?

Anyhoo...as Simon correctly pointed out, Kris gave a totally competent vocal on this number that came close to, but did not exceed, the original.

****

Danny Gokey and the Ghost of Idols Past, ''You Are So Beautiful'' Oh, Simon! A ''vocal masterclass''? Masterclass in what? How to support your notes like bricks resting in hammocks made from damp paper towels? A masterclass in how to insult Elliott Yamin, the previous recipient of this compliment from you back in Idol's fifth season? A masterclass in sticking to a pre-ordained Danny-vs.-Adam script you and Paula have been flogging since mid-March? No, sir, this will not stand...not when we're talking about the night's most tepid vocal.

Seriously, I know I've never been Danny's biggest fan, but I don't understand how the judges went wild for a song that opened with a breathy, awkwardly paced, and frequently flat verse, which then switched into a full-on ''adult contemporary, back when Michael Bolton was contemporary'' arrangement, only to finish with such grim effort and ridiculous riffing that it was as if Danny was singing while single-handedly carrying a refrigerator up four flights of (narrow, twisty, uneven) stairs. And what was with the ''your love turned this boy into a man'' riff? A sly cover for missed lyrics, or just some bizarre bit of whimsy that conjured up all kinds of awkward voice-changing incidents.

And yet there was Randy yelping ''you showed you are here because you can really, really, really sing.'' And there was Paula uttering the phrase ''do magic to it,'' and there was Danny, post-performance, telling us he'd been thinking to himself all day, ''I have to just do what I do best. I'm not gonna worry about all the oh-pinions.'' And there's me thinking, ''Taylor Hicks covered this very song back in season 5, during Top 3 week, and his version was far more sincere and sexy and pitch-perfect, and yet the Idol machine wants us to think he's a metal tub of Krakus Ham, and that Danny is pork tenderloin in a white-wine and truffle-oil reduction. Well, y'know what, judges? I'm not swallowing what you're putting on the plate.

And now, our letter grades for the night...
Kris' ''Heartless'': A
Adam's ''Cryin''': B+
Kris' ''Apologize'': B
Danny's ''Dance Little Sister'': B
Adam's ''One'': B-
Danny's ''You Are So Beautiful'': C+
