American Idol’s Top 5


This weeks theme is Rat Pack.  This should involve songs by Dean Martin, Sammy Davis JR, and Frank Sinatra to name a few.  Hopefully, tonight’s songs will sound more like the theme than last week’s Disco bust!


We interrupt this blog post for a Paula Abdul wardrobe timeout!  Is that an Origami dress she is wearing?!  And the bling around her neck strongly resembles some sort of sparkly padlock.


So who better to help our Top 5 contestants than……Jaime Foxx?????  Is he not the guy who caused a commotion over telling Miley Cyrus to put some crack in her pipe?  Do we have any standards, AI executives??


Moving along to the singing and judging, because that IS why we are here:


Kris—“The Way You Look Tonight”.  And he’s off to a slow start for me….and the purple hazy lights are putting me into a trance.  I think his vocals were nice and Rat Pack-ish, which is why we are here.  The judges LOVED it and he has set the bar high right off the bat.


Allison— our girl power representative will be singing   “Someone to Watch Over Me”.  I must ask, has her hair been the same color twice at any point during this competition??  Anywhoo.  Her voice is amazing and she did a great job.  Simon was the only judge who seems to think she is “in trouble” after her performance.  I disagree.


Matt— “My Funny Valentine”.  Is it bad that without even hearing him sing I think he will be gone next week??  He’s got the Ryan from High School Musical look going for him tonight (thanks hubby for pointing that out).  I thought his performance was not memorable.  Paula, thought it was “pure, simple and blessed”.  Simon thought it was “brilliant”.    Randy and Kara disagreed with the other two.


Danny—can I get a w00t w00t!!  Ok, I’ll let you hear him sing first.  He’s singing “Come Rain or Come Shine”.  Jamie had to get in his “grill” to inspire him to sing fantastically.  Hey, whatever it takes.  Danny came out strong and he’s certainly got the Rat Pack look down in that suit.   BRAVO!!   The judges used the words,  “album”, “swagger”, and “outstanding”.  Did I mention, I agree with them??


**Regaining composure** 


Adam— “Feeling Good” is the song he chose and I’m not sure I am familiar with it.  Oh my!  The pink illuminated steps against his silky white suit is just….umm, illuminating?!  No question, dude can sing.  But this week he brings home the drama award.  It was definitely over the top; sorry, he’s just not my style!  OH.MY.WORD.  Paula just said, “watching you is like watching the Olympics and YOU are Michael Phelps".  Is this where I ask what SHE is smoking?!   And it just gets better by Ryan stating, “that was some strut down the stairs”. 


Oh that note, I am outta here!


Top Three:  Kris, Allison, Danny

Going home:  Matt

Drama Award:  Adam

Where will Adam put all his drama awards? Surely he wins that one every week, no? I think he will need a special order shelf...

Girl, you are HIGH-larious. And I love Adam's drama. I can't help but admire his fearlessness. But Danny took the night, I think, b/c his home run was more unexpected. Thanks for another fun recounting of the show!

I just love your reviews!

You're right about Matt channeling Ryan which makes me think they so need to do a High School Musical night. There are three movies worth of songs.

Danny all the way!

I like Adam but the drama is gettin' to be a little much. I thought they all did very well.
And yeah, Fred said~why is Jamie Foxx there?!

I asked my husband if the song Adam sang was in The Rocky Horror Picture Show because it came across like that. I liked it, but it was way over the top.

I really liked Danny. I was regaining my composure with ya.

Love the top drama award. So funny. I didn't know about Foxx saying that about Miley, I so changed my opinion about him. What was he thinking? Big dummy.
