American Idol 2009 Week 10: Top 3
Tuesday, 2009 May 12 - 8:23 pm
Allison went home last week, boo. Also, Simon Cowell publicly predicted that Adam would win it all. This week, with three guys left: the judges pick one song, the contestants pick one.

Danny Gokey
"Dance Little Sister", Terrance Trent D'Arby, picked by Paula. Uh. I don't like this song choice at all. He's got a lot of energy and it's a good performance, but I just don't think people are gonna connect to this song. Simon is right when he says a more popular Terrance Trent D'Arby song would have been better. 7.

Kris Allen
"Apologize" by One Republic, picked by Kara and Randy. I was skeptical about this song choice, but he's doing okay. It's not quite as gritty as maybe it should be, and it's a kinda copycat, but it's not bad. 7.

Adam Lambert
"One", by U2, picked by Simon, lucky. This is a brilliant choice, and a great arrangement. (Simon made a point of the fact that Kara and Randy didn't help Kris with his arrangement.) At the end, though, it's way over the top; what is he, Tina Turner? It was almost perfect; as it is, it's still the best of the first round. 9.

Danny Gokey
"You Are So Beautiful", Joe Cocker. He's made a slower, mellower arrangement of this song, and it works. It really works. This song plays to his strengths, it's original, and it's vocally flawless. 10.

Kris Allen
"Heartless", Kanye West... the unplugged version. It's an interesting song and I like that he's trying to do something with it, but his vocals aren't quite up to the task, and that's magnified that he's doing it as an acoustic arrangement. Good, not great. 8.

Adam Lambert
"Crying", Aerosmith. Hmm. Again, it's a bit over the top for my taste. I think he's oversinging a bit, and that's uncharacteristically throwing him off key. I don't really like it, but if he's come this far with that style, it's hard to see him leaving. 8.

If it were up to me, Kris would go home. But I fear that Danny has the weakest following.
