So, off the top- the Ford commercial is lame, the group sing was only slightly better than usual, and the judges are stupid. ( Well, they haven’t done anything offensive as of this moment, but it bears repeating.)
The typical breakdown that Idol does for top five week, creating two groups of two and making the fifth choose a group. This year, RyRy sent Matty and Kris to the one side, Allison and Danny to the other, making Adam choose between the two. Usually, they announce the fifth person safe and then makes them choose. This year, I got suspicious when RyRy didn’t call Adam safe. Adam went and joined Danny and Allison, when RyRy pulled a switcheroo and announced that no, DWP and my beloved Allison were in fact safe, and Matty, Adam, and Kris were the bottom three.
Natalie Cole looks really good for someone who is as ill as she is reported to be and she sounds great. Some pitch issues, but she’s a legend. I forgive legends.
Taylor Hicks? Ugh.
Taylor looks pretty much the same. I’m not impressed though. His song is tolerable but nothing special.
Matty, Kris, and Adam come back and the person sitting back at the couch is-Kris.
RyRy didn’t say bottom two, so I don’t know who is bottom two.
EW has been predicting this week could be a shocking elimination. I would think if Adam went, that is beyond shocking…
I don’t like this song (the video’s cool, but the song sucks). Jamie Foxx can go away now.
RyRy calls Simon out, and Simon take sit rather well ( but smugly). Adam is announced safe ( the right call), and Matty goes home for real this time.
Next week is Rock week, and Slash is supposed to be the mentor. The coolest Idol mentor ever!
Till next week.
