I Like the Night Life

I like to boogie…..and I love me some disco music!

Nothing like a little Bee Gee’s or some KC & the Sunshine Band!

We are down to the final seven. Last week the judges used their “save” card for Matt, which means there will be two people leaving this week. No pressure, kids.

Let’s skip all the judges hoop-de-hoo and get to the singing. Because we all know Paula will be wearing something crazy and Simon will have on either a white, grey or black t-shirt.

Lil Rounds is getting us started with “I’m Every Woman”. She’s certainly rocking the TIGHT black outfit and I am mesmerized by the sparkly HUGE hoop earrings. Which means, my attention span was not focused on her singing performance. It was just ok for me….and the judges too.

Kris picked Donna Summer’s “She Works Hard for the Money”. Ok, fine, he’s doing his own guitar rendition of this song accompanied by men on bongos. I think he’s got a great voice. I know people are going to LOVE this arrangement. I didn’t, but hey, it’s my blog.

***TIMEOUT here*** What did Paula just say…hang on let’s get a rewind here: “A lot of women are known to shop in the men’s department, but not many men are willing to shop in the women’s.”

Ummm, Paula, what are you taking, honey??? Get some help. Simon is right, we all need a translator when she speaks. Bless her heart.

Danny Gokey chose Earth Wind and Fire “September”. Now here we go folks, DISCO MUSIC at it’s finest. That’s what I’m talking about…70’s music, complete with a back up singer sporting a fine ‘fro! Yes, sir. My boy, Danny! Ahem. The judges liked it, but Simon is looking for “star power".

Allison our local teenager has chosen “Hot Stuff”. Oh.My.Word. The hair, the dress, the very tall tiny heel shoes! Does her hair remind anyone else of a Strawberry Shortcake Oompa Loompa??? She’s branched out with her own rendition of this song. There’s no question her voice is the best. But I’m not liking this arrangement. Simon was the only judge to say the performance was “brilliant”.

Adam is going with the Saturday Night Fever song “If I Can’t Have You”. *YAWN* S-L-O-W songs make me sleepy. And Paula is looking googly eyed at him which makes me nauseous. He’s just not my style but he sings well and the judges loved him! He’ll be in the top two unless he has some major singing malfunction.

Matt who can thank the judges for his return this week, chose to sing the all time disco classic “Stayin' Alive”. Here we go….disco music. Paula’s up moving and grooving. Wow, he’s working his range with this song but nothing really extraordinary. Paula, of course, thought he bowled a strike, while the other 3 judges thought it was just average.

Anoop is singing “Dim All the Lights”. Hmmm, not sure I’ve heard this song. Oh, wow, he’s gone all out this week and kicked up the collegiate look a notch with the facial hair. I didn’t really care for the song. Three judges liked him….Simon thought it was dreadful (and I agree).

Wow, I was so excited about Disco Night….but it was not as fun as I thought I was gonna be. HUGE bummer! I’m packing up my disco ball, Eight Tracks, and my ‘Fro for another day.

Without further adieu:

Top Four: Kris, Danny, Allison, Adam

Bottom Three: Lil Rounds, Matt, Anoop

Two going home: Lil Rounds, Anoop

I wonder when they will make you a judge? You could totally do it!

You didn't recognize Anoop's song because it was nearly unrecognizable. Loved your summation, you witty thing.

Cindy-Still His Girl said...

Paula looking googly made you nauseous. Loved it.

Fun recap! I agree with you and Simon on Anoop. GAH. I loved Allison tonight, and Danny and Kris and Adam can do no wrong in my book. I thought Matt pulled it out, but Anoop and Lil need to get packing. :-)

Suzie said...

I was disappointed with tonight, too. If it's gonna be a disco night, it would be nice to actually have disco songs.

Kate said...

GOODBYE to Lil...and Anoop please!!! :D Thank You. There you are girl....I lost you for a while, glad to see you back on the AI review track!! :)

We've got the same bottom 3. From our words to America's dialing digits!

Rachel said...

I'm praying you're right about who's going home. Otherwise I might cry. I Cannot Take Another Night Of Lil's Sub-Par Singing. And I think Anoop's eyebrows whether shaped or not, give him a permanent smug look.

The Bayou Belles and Their Beau said...

I think Lil & Anoop will be going home. Danny & Chris were my favorites of the night.

Leigh of Bloggeritaville said...

I concur.

I'm with ya all the way! I was sooo bored tonight. I like Adam, Danny and Allison but really none of then shined tonight. Come on, Disco week is usually so up beat and fun.
Paula's on the dope that's for sure!

I know Adam can sing, but I find him a bit weird. I agree with you, it wasn't really disco night. The only one who tried to do disco was Danny (love, love, love him). But, I thought Kris was awesome. He was easily the best of the night.
