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.
-kris: loved it! loved everything about it. it was very john mayer-ish (before he got political) to me.
-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!
-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.
-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).
-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.
-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.
that's it for me. what did you think?
