top seven: round two

so last week i didn't have time to do much else than work, breathe, sleep, and eat.  which is why i never got to post anything about top seven:  round one.  (maybe they knew that... so they gave me a second chance.  probably not.)  anyway... here's my quick thoughts on tonight's performances.


first, of course... a rundown on the judges.  
     -randy:  obviously, wearing orange for stellan!
     -kara:  sporting some great hair and a color other than navy and/or black.  nice.
     -paula:  wearing sleeves!  amazing.  still saying random things.  and dancing.
     -simon:  wearing the thinnest undershirt he could find.  obviously.


now, onto the perfomances... same ratings apply.

-lil:  props to lil for performing as well as she did for being sick.  i thought something was a little off.  however, the judges are right.  she's just not showing herself for who she is.  i can't figure out what kind of artist she would be.  this week, simon's right, may be her last.
rating:  -

-kris:  loved it!  loved everything about it.  it was very john mayer-ish (before he got political) to me.  
rating: ++

-danny:  he's great.  every week.  but he's not super dynamic every week.  and that's what may bump kris up into the final two and danny 3rd.  that is, if-things-keep-up-the-way-they-are-this-week, and not that danny won't be stepping up his game next week.  after all, it is all in the arrangement... ha!
rating:  +

-allison:  i get the vibe she was portraying.  i do.  but hated the outfit.  loved her voice.  didn't love the arrangement.  she is good.  she's the best girl still standing, and this season they dropped like flies.  
rating:  =

-adam:  brilliant.  and, for the record, i still love fresh-face adam better than manscara adam.  but, either way, he is now my favorite, right up there with kris, of course, because kris is more my style.  wait, i think i just pulled a paula... who am i talking about?  oh yeah.  adam.  loved it.  i think we have a winner, and a few weeks ago, i would have washed my mouth out after saying that (country week, if you can't remember).
rating:  ++

-matt:  okay.  really.  what america wanted to end last week should have ended last week.  hopefully, it will end this week.  i still don't really know what kind of album he would make.  he's trying to be too many different people and i'm over it.  i never really liked him in the first place, then a few weeks in a row- he was great.  now he's back to being unimpressive.  
rating:  -

-anoop:  he is great with the ballads.  this week, he didn't really wow me, but he did a great job and he can sing.  and he can totally pull off pink.  
rating:  =

that's it for me.  what did you think?

Shhhhhhhhhh.... We Adam fans don't talk about country week. That's blasphemy!

Kris was the bomb this week though.

Kris was AWESOME last night.
I still LOVE DANNY!

And I really don't like Adam, too creepy.
