Three-way Battle Royale!  

It's the battle of the Hometown Heroes! Let the sausage-fest begin!

It's the 300th episode of Idol tonight! WOW!

They are running some clips from the hometown visits. They show Danny's clip from when he got his song choice. Ryan chats with Paula about the song choice.

Danny - Dance Little Sister (1-866-436-5701 or
1-866-436-5704 or 1-866-436-5707 or text "vote" to 5701)
He seems extra shouty tonight and he's dancing like a chicken. The scatting/sax thing was interesting but not REAL interesting. It really seemed to me like he shouted most of the time. I'm sure the judges will love it because they want an Adam/Danny finale. Randy says way to jump it off, dude, that was dope for me, dude. Kara calls him out on the dancing. Paula thinks he did...REALLY GOOD. Then she talks about his magic part. Simon didn't like the dancing or the sax thing.

Kris - Apologize
(1-866-436-5702 or 1-866-436-5705 or 1-866-436-5708 or text "vote" to 5702)
They show Kris getting his song from Randy and Kara (Randy must have gotten the short straw). Kris is singing it "A-pologize" and not "pologize". Sounds odd. I think this sound too much like the original. Kris should know that only Danny is allowed to be Karaoke. Randy calls it nice. Kara calls it competent but says he should have hit it out of the park. Paula talks about the song sitting somewhere and then talks about a bum note. Simon picks on Paula again and then SLAMS Kara!! Oh Snap!!! Fight at the judges table! That's almost worth watching again.

Adam - One
(1-866-436-5703 or 1-866-436-5706 or 1-866-436-5709 or text "vote" to 5703)
Simon picked this for him. Simon had to clear the song with Bono. I liked the beginning but the arrangement was odd. It was quiet and soft in the beginning, got louder and louder until the screaming rock wail and then all the sudden quiet again at the end. Not his best but it was the arrangement, not him. It really pains me to write that. I watched it again to make sure. I REALLY loved the beginning right up to the shouty, over the top middle. I also liked the ending. The audience seems to love it. Randy calls him one of the hottest 3 in the show (DUH!). Kara calls it unbelievable. Paula babbles on about Simon. Simon calls it a brilliant song choice. Har, har, har. He also says that if Adam isn't in the finale, it will be the worst thing the show has ever seen (or something like that).

Idol gives back update - I'm not watching.

Danny - You Are So Beautiful (1-866-436-5701 or 1-866-436-5704 or 1-866-436-5707 or text "vote" to 5701)
Danny gets some chair time to talk to Ryan about his song choice. He likes to repeat himself. YUCK! He changed into a gospel-type song. Like I said last week, "Danny, you don't have to take EVERY song to church." I didn't like it at all. I'm sure his fans and the judges will love it. Randy says he can sing...again. Kara calls it stunning. Paula speaks for everyone and says he left everyone breathless. No, Paula, just you and Danny were breathless after that one. Simon didn't like the arrangement but calls it a vocal masterclass. I just have one thing to say to that WTF?!?!?!!? Danny talks to much! Stop talking to him, Ryan!!!

Kris - Heartless (1-866-436-5702 or 1-866-436-5705 or 1-866-436-5708 or text "vote" to 5702)
He also chats with Ryan about song choice but VERY briefly. They so don't want him to make it tomorrow. WOW! I have to say...I LOVED IT! I love arrangements that really turn a song into something 180 degrees different and this did it. Who know Kanye West could sound so good. For the first time this season, I will be buying a song from some one other than Allison, Alexis and Adam ( I have a thing for the "A" names this year). If he doesn't make it into the final two, it will be a miss carriage of justice! Randy likes this version better than the original. I agree! Kara calls it brave, bold, and fearless. Paula says something about Simon...again. Simon says he had written Kris out of the finale until that performance.

Adam - Cryin (1-866-436-5703 or 1-866-436-5706 or 1-866-436-5709 or text "vote" to 5703)
He gets to talk to Ryan too. I think Adam is getting screwed tonight. First a crappy arrangement and now the background singer drowns him out. WTF?? It was good but I'm worried. I'm real worried. I think he forgot some of the words too. Vote people!! I'm hoping that it's just me. PLEASE someone tell me that it was just me. Maybe it's the beer. I normally have vodka. Randy calls him one of the best ever on the stage. Kara says see you at the finale. Paula says he will be in next week. Simon warns America about voting and says Adam deserves it. I don't think I've said this before but I love Adam's laugh. Adam gives props to Danny and Kris. Adam seems like such a great guy!

Here is my order of the night:
1. Kris - Heartless
2. Adam - Cryin
3. Adam - One
4. Kris - Apologize
5. Danny - Dance Little Sister
6. Danny - You are so Beautiful

I guess I shouldn't be too worried. Adam did well just not as well as I was hoping. I was also hoping that he was going to sing "Wicked Game" which would have been haunting. Anyway, Vote, Vote, Vote!!!!!

You're not the only one who thought Adam was a bit off tonight, particularly on "Cryin'." That said, it's clear that Kris and Adam should be the Final 2.

I agree that Danny talks too much. It's even more annoying because it's always about himself. "I was trying to do this with the song..." Adam and Kris are humble and classy, while Danny comes off as self-absorbed. Even though Kris is my favorite, I'd be happy for Adam if he won. I can't say the same about Danny.

Adam totally lied when he said it was an honor to share the stage with Hokey! You know he probably hates his smug ass.


"who knew Kanye could sound so good?" HA! So true!
