Each week, I’ve been lucky enough to get a hold of the studio recordings from American Idol. This week was no different. The guys recorded their studio versions of each of the songs and they sounded that much better.
I’m not going to say anything further about last night’s results show, except to say that I was pleased.
Check out all six songs here:
Adam Lambert – “One” by U2:
Adam Lambert – “Cryin’” by Aerosmith:
Kris Allen – “Heartless” by Kanye West:
Kris Allen – “Apologize” by One Republic:
Danny Gokey – “You Are So Beautiful” by Joe Cocker:
Danny Gokey – “Dance Little Sister by Terrence Trent D’Arby:
What did you think of the results?

Can you believe it?
It was said, even by Simon Cowell, that Kris Allen didn’t have what it takes to go further in the show. But he made it through!
Someone heard my begging and pleading and Go-Go-Gokey has been eliminated! Ha.

American Idol is dwindling down to an almost halt soon. Last week, Allison Iraheta was shown the door, even though her performance was much better than Danny Gokey’s.
On Tuesday night’s show, the judges selected a song for each singer to perform. Afterwards, the guys got to choose their own song.
Danny Gokey was up first and sang Terrence Trent D’Arby’s song, “Dance Little Sister”, as chosen by Paula Abdul, for the crowd.
His voice sounded really strained singing this song. I am not a fan of this version at all.
After Danny’s performance, Kris Allen took the stage to perform One Republic’s “Apologize”, as chosen by Randy Jackson.
This was a nice slow song and it was definitely a good song choice for Kris. I hope to see him in the finale of the show, alongside Adam Lambert.
Speaking of Adam, Simon Cowell chose U2′s song, “One” for him to sing. I’m not a fan of this version of the song at all. I really like U2 and this song is old school. It wasn’t the best song choice for Adam, in my opinion.
After the judge’s choice, the guys were able to sing a song of their own choice.
Danny started off again, singing Joe Cocker’s song, “You Are So Beautiful” and it reeked! This guy needs to go home already. It’s over for Gokey. Vote Gokey off of the island already. He already hosed up Allison’s chances.
Kris then tore up the stage with Kanye West’s song, “Heartless”. I’m not a huge fan of Kanye’s, but the song was good for Kris and he seemed to do pretty well for himself with it. Maybe he’ll make it to the final two because of this song.
And last but not least, Adam sang Aerosmith’s “Cryin’” and he murdered it. Do you think he’s doing that on purpose? I love Aerosmith, but to hear what he did to the song, it should be against the law.
Who do you think’s gonna win?

The top four really did try on Tuesday night’s American Idol, but it wasn’t as bad as it sounded. The studio recordings are actually decent.
Check out the studio recordings from each of the contestant’s performances. I think if these were released prior to the vote, we may have had a different result.
Adam Lambert – Whole Lotta Love
Allison Iraheta – Cry Baby
Danny Gokey – Dream On
Kris Allen – Come Together
Adam Lambert & Allison Iraheta – Slow Ride
Danny Gokey & Kris Allen – Renegade

After Paula Abdul lip-sync’d the crap out of her new song, Kris Allen was put in the safe chair.
In a sucktastic move, as I surely thought Kris Allen or Danny Gokey would be sent packing, Allison Iraheta was sent to the center stage to
be a cry baby sing “Cry Baby” one last time.
