This show is not as enjoyable as it used to be

For those of you coming here to read a detailed breakdown on last night's Idol episode, I'm sorry to disappoint you once again. I'm not feeling well and just want to go to bed. But unlike last week -- when between attending the Caps game on Tuesday night and work commitments the following night (combined with a general lack of excitment about Idol these days) meant I didn't even watch Idol until Thursday night, I'll at least provide a couple thoughts.

Adam, of course, was probably the best because he's just the most comfortable person left in the competition with straight rock songs, but I'm still not sure how I feel about Zeppelin songs on American Idol. Just kind of weird. (And I can't believe he didn't do "Sweet Child o Mine" with Slash as the mentor. He would have killed.) Still, I thought Adam wasn't really that much better than Allison, who I thought was pretty strong. i actually liked Danny tonight, until that awful last note, although Kara, um, Dream On is "early" Aerosmith, the songs you mentioned like Cryin are "late" Aerosmith. Wow, Kara, you're turning into a gaffe machine, the George W. Bush of American Idol judges. As for Kris, "Come Together" has always been one of my least favorite Beatles songs because I always found it kind of boring--so I wasn't crazy about Kris' performance, but I don't think it deserved the beating it got from the judges.

As for the duets, I enjoyed both of them, but found the whole thing ridiculous. To beat a dead horse on this blog, is this show so out of control that they now, unlike every other year, can't have the top four do two solo songs apiece? I presume next week we won't get to hear the top 3 do three songs, as is customary, because they won't be able to fit it in with all the other junk they have to fit into the show and the fourth judge. I'm really starting to not enjoy this show anymore--one reason being that in its eight season, it's getting kind of boring, but the other is the show's increasingly smaller time left over for actual singing.

Fingerhut out.

Sorry to hear that you have the swine flu. Too much bacon will do that to you.

Kara: I hate to say it, but her being such a doofus might be the most interesting thing about the show these days. I barely got through last week's shows and didn't watch last night's yet.

Kris is probably going home tonight and Allison is so talented its crazy. I am thinking I wish she could win at this point but who knows. Adam give me the creeps.

As far as the duets, Kris and Danny were not so great and Allison and Adam nailed it. It took me back to when I saw Foghat live for the first time in 1980. As far as Adam doing Zeppelin, ahhhh, not a good thing. He is better doing more pop rock than real rock. No question Adam is talented, but come on, doing Zeppelin? Vocally he can nail it but he is just not a "true" rocker. He is way too put together as if his parents/handlers have been grooming him for this moment since he was a kid. Rock is Mick, Page, Dio, Clapton...I could go on. It is a lifestyle Adam has not lived. Put him on a stage on Broadway and that is Adam. One lives rock. Adam acts rock. He just can't sell it. Not others music at least. When he writes and sings is own, maybe.

Oh, and I will take Kara over Paula any day. She knows her stuff and can articulate it much better than Paula. Mixing "late" with "early" is a non-issue.

You have to express more your opinion to attract more readers, because just a video or plain text without any personal approach is not that valuable. But it is just form my point of view
