Wow. On "It Don’t Mean a Thing," the Idols actually seemed to be singing live, a testament to their collective talent! Kris Allen, we’ve all bought into the idea that you’re the "cute one." How about dressing up a little next time?
After the group number, we were all treated to an inexplicable food fight started by Danny Gokey. It (perhaps inappropriately) brought to mind the "sloshing" phenomenon, featured on the HBO series "Real Sex."
Ryan instructed the Idols to go to separate ends of the stage, according to their popularity. Kris and Matt were on one side; Allison and Danny were on the other. Then he asked Adam Lambert which side he thought he belonged on. Glambert, perhaps in a display of modesty, stepped over to the Gokey/Iraheta side. (Everyone knows that, despite her singing, Allison has no personality and is next to go.)
Idol shocker! "Frontrunner" Glambert actually belonged on the Giraud/Allen side of the vote. Welcome to the Bottom 3, Glambert.
Natalie Cole performed, I guess because her dad was into "standards." If you are still lost, pull out one of your old Christmas albums. It doesn’t get more "standard" than that.
Taylor Hicks, winner of Season 5 (and classmate in my sister’s biology class back in Alabama!) performed. He was looking much "svelter," and regardless of how boring his song was, one can’t deny the magnetism of a "silver fox."
Seacrest sent one Idol in the Bottom 3 to safety. Clearly it was frontrunner Glambert, right? Wrong! It was "dark horse" Kris.
Then comedian/singer/full-of-himself Oscar winner Jamie Foxx performed. He made the Idols look like professional lip=syncers. Could they at least tone down the pre-recorded overly synthesized vocals? To Foxx’s credit, he applauded the Top 5’s talent and referred to them as "artists."
Spoiler Alert! Matt, despite his Judges’ Save, was the one to go home last night. Perhaps the bigger shocker, though, was the fact that Adam Lambert was in the Bottom 2.
Dammit. I truly believe that Giraud was the most talented overall.
Who will now go up against Glambert in the finals? Or, considering last night’s turn of events, will Glambert even be in the finals?
Tune in next week to find out!
