Very quick thoughts

Was out after work and didn't get home until late, so I don't have time to blog after watching a two-hour Idol for the sixth week in a row or whatever.

Quickly, Adam was great, Kris was too, and Anoop was pretty good as well.

Bottom three: Michael Sarver, Megan Joy (who gets better looking every week but kind of sucked tonight) and Scott. And it appears that the judges have finally figured out that Scott and Michael really aren't that great. Simon, Michael couldn't have won the competition when you urged the country to vote him into the top 12 last month--nothing happened to change that. It was always that way.
Sarver will go home.

And overall, the judges were generally pretty good tonight (and is anyone else sensing that Paula, by some of the faces she made tonight, really doesn't care for Kara), but Kara was totally wrong when she said the competition isn't about singing, but about "artistry" and what you can do to change up the melody. Kara, it is about singing well--since there's a few people left who don't sing that well--and you don't have to change the melody to be unique. Adam didn't really change the melody in any significant way (and he shouldn't have, since Tracks of My Tears is one of the great pop songs of all time), but he stripped it down and reinvented it by staying true to the song.

Fingerhut out.

I agree Sarver is going home...please then Scott and Megan. I am not a huge fan of Adam and he was good but Allison owned the night...she is amazing.
