American Idol 2009 Week 6: Top 7
Tuesday, 2009 April 14 - 8:07 pm
Scott finally went home last week. This week: songs from movies... with Quentin Tarantino as the mentor. Awesome. Blessed is he who, in the name of charity and good will, shepherds the weak through the valley of the darkness.

Allison Iraheta
"I Don't Want to Miss a Thing", Aerosmith. Not my favorite song, but she starts it reasonably well. As always, we like her breathy delivery. Oh, but then she starts to get a little shouty in the chorus... she's really got to watch out for that; when she oversings, it throws her off. By the end, it's kind of a mess. But the judges like it. 7.

Anoop Desai
"Everything I Do, I Do It For You", Bryan Adams. Ughhhh. This song is almost a cliché now. I will say, vocally it's pretty good; it's right on key, and the style is in his wheelhouse. But it's just not very original. Anoop's been in the botton three a lot; this won't turn anyone off, but neither will it win him any new fans. 7.

Adam Lambert
"Born to be Wild", Steppenwolf. Huh. We're back to over-the-top Adam again... it's just too much. And by the end, he's just shrieking. I wouldn't crown him king just yet. I found this to be one of his worst performances, actually. Could anyone listen to a whole CD of stuff like this? I don't think so. 7.

Matt Giraud
"Have You Ever Really Loved a Woman", Bryan Adams. This may be one of my least favorite songs ever. This sounds so old-fashioned, and it's like something you'd hear at a dueling-piano bar. And I'm pretty sure his voice cracked a couple of times. Bottom three. 4.

Danny Gokey
"Endless Love", Lionel Richie. Gaaah, what's with all the sappiness? Vocally solid as always. But it's just a boring song. He's trying to do a few things with it, adding some changes in there, but there's only so far you can go with this song. It's not great, but it's good... good enough to keep him around. 8.

Kris Allen
"Falling Slowly". Wow, this is obscure... and very dull, and very pitchy. This is bordering on hideous. This can't possibly help his chances. 4.

Lil Rounds
"The Rose", Bette Midler. Another cliché. The beginning is mediocre, I think... she has trouble holding pure tones. The gospel turn is interesting, but vocally it gets worse and worse. At one point it sounds like she's singing in another key altogether. It's a disaster. 3.

Tough to pick a bottom three this week; I think only Danny and Adam are safe.
