American Idol - After the Save (The Adam Show)

Matt got saved last week which had all the suspense of reading the dictionary. Tonight the producers chose everyone's favorite genre of music: disco! I wish we could vote off the idea people for Idol.

As stated last week: there is Adam Lambert and everyone else trails by a pretty wide margin. That isn't necessarily a knock against the other performers. Some of them are really, really good and in another season would be front runners. Unfortunately they got lumped in with an actual juggernaut of talent. Adam slayed it again tonight and proved that he could hit the big time very very soon after the ridiculous cash grab called "The Idol Tour."

Most of the performances were above par tonight. Fairly predictable (isn't all disco?), but really good. Besides Adam, I think two performers stood out tonight. Kris Allen was clearly out in front of the rest of the crew with his song choice and arrangement. His version of "She Works Hard for the Money" sounded like a song off a Jason Mraz album. From me, that is an enormous compliment. I also thought Matt Giraud did himself a great service with his performance tonight. Songs like he did tonight are right in his wheelhouse.

My judge of the night goes to (and I may get struck down by lightening for saying this) Paula. She was absolutely on point tonight. I don't know if she had her comments prewritten, but her department store analogy and bowling comparison to Kris and Matt respectively were witty and applicable. Man I can't believe I just wrote that last paragraph. I must be really tired or something.

I think it is the end of the line for Lil Rounds and Anoop tomorrow night. America has gotten the vote offs right this year and I think these two are goners.
