Change in performance ranking
Before anything else, I would like to change my ranking of the performances last night after watching the whole show for the third time (yes, I always watch the show three times): Kris Allen is a runaway winner last night…I realized. I thought Adam Lambert should only come in second in the originality department last night for this reason: disco is never meant to be sang like a ballad or any other styles and if there will be changes, the beat should be at least maintained. Adam’s arrangement of If I Can’t Have You was original but the whole thing was completely far off the week’s theme and the essence of the song as a disco tune was mashed up.
The third place and so on remain the same.
Archie is as cute as ever. He sang Touch My Hand. Seeing him again perform made me more excited with his concert with Cook on May 16, 2009.
So who among the Idol alumni would I like to see performing once again on the Idol stage? I think I already miss Katharine McPhee AND MELINDA DOOLITTLE!
The bottom three were Lil, Anoop and Allison. As clear as crystal, Lil’s elimination was kind of overdue and was sent home immediately. Matt was, again, given his third chance to prove himself which I think would be in order and was saved from sitting in the bottom 3.
Between Anoop and Allison, I would have preferred the former to be saved this week so it would be an all-male cast in the top 5. On the other hand, Anoop’s performance last night was not as strong as Allison’s to generate more votes. But Anoop was going home with Lil, so no more pink vests and stubbles for him. As I have expected, Allison is the last woman standing but she’s going home next week.
The elimination of Lil and Anoop has made others to rant over the ‘racist’ America – Lil being Black and Anoop being Asian. But people of the world, let’s not sensationalize that matter. Their elimination is warranted by their poor performances. That’s all. Nothing more, nothing less.
