American Idol 8: Top 4 (Don't Quite Feel A Whole Lotta Love)

Not so Rocking 4[Rickey]
It's funny how the season I'm not super duper into Idol (like I usually am) is the year they implement what Pamy and I have been dreaming about for ages: DUETS. Imagine how amazing it would have been last year of Cookie and Michael did one and yet this year when we finally get 'our wish' it doesn't quite feel as satisfying. It sort of made me wish it didn't happen at all. Be careful what you wish for, I guess

But it did and so did a whole lot of other 'rocking' things on tonight's show. It's funny cause now that they're down to the top 4, I was really expecting only the best, but with the very slanted challenging theme, I guess it would be hard to come up with something amazing.

And the duets. Wow. I don't know what else to say cause I felt it came a season too late. Then again, this is the season of change, so I should have seen it coming.

I'm not a big fan of rock. I do like the occasional Guitar Hero song, but I can appreciate rock when it comes down to it. And this week was made for Adam Lambert. From his appearance to his voice to the way he owned the stage, boy knew how to bring Whole Lotta Love to another level. I don't know how the original sounds but I'm sure Adam enjoyed that one. He sure as hell looked like it.

Wow. My jaw dropped and I just hit the floor when Allison Iraheta opened her mouth. I swear from all the kids that have ever gone through Idol (except Archie, Pamy), this girl really is deserving of all the praise she's getting. I love how she didn't over sing Cry Baby when you know she could have. I'm glad she didn't get such a fast rock-out song either cause this is more her speed. I loved it and I'm not even that familiar with the song.

Why so mean judges? Do you really want to kick Kris Allen out THAT badly? Because I thought he did brilliantly on Come Together and you guys are just hating. I loved the guitar and how he didn't shout his way through the song and how he seemed actually comfortable with it. It felt natural and unpretentious considering I never saw Kris as a rawker. Please don't kick him out just yet!!!

There is seriously a curse with this song. Last year, Michael Johns sang it and got the boot so and he was quite the rocker so I don't know Danny Gokey is going to pull this off with his very painful take on Dream On. I like you Danny, but you should have gone with a slower rock song. This is the time to pick a safe rock song considering you're already out of your comfort zone. My face was scrunched up watching this. It just wasn't good. Then the falsetto and I died (in a non-good way).

So I was expecting some sort of apocalypse with the Kris and Danny duet due to all the negative response online but for some reason, I wasn't flinching as hard as I thought I would with Renegade. In fact, despite the shouty mcshouting that Danny did, I thought their blending was pretty good. Then again, maybe blending isn't what you look for in a rock song, but it was pretty good. I wouldn't pay to watch them in a rock concert, but it wasn't like they totally massacred it.

But then the powers that be at Idol decided to pair up the two rockers Adam and Allison during the rock week obviously to their advantage as they gave the most mind blowing performance of my favorite Guitar Hero easy level song, Slow Ride!!! From the moment they started singing, I was getting goosebumps and just felt crazy amazing. That was so good. They definitely brought out the best in the other and now I felt bad for Kris/Danny cause this was so not in their favor.

And so Kris/Danny wasn't as bad as I thought they would be. The only problem is Adam/Allison totally brought it and left everyone in the dust. So that's gonna be a problem. However, according to the very unstable Dial Idol, Allison gets the lowest votes this week, with Kris trailing her.

I feel that Kris will get the boot just cause the judges/powers that be feel no love for him, but I'm hoping Danny leaves or even Allison (though I love her to bits) cause we all know that Adam will forever be safe. But really I could care less. When Kris gets eliminated, wow I'll really be apathetic. Oh kris, please stay.
