I am so shocked. If there was anyone who deserved to leave the show, it should have been Danny Gokey. He’s had a couple of decent performances but nothing that wowed my pants off, and as for last night? He was easily the worst. But instead, Allison Iraheta got the boot. Maybe she doesn’t have the widest vocal range but her phrasing is great, her voice is sexy, and she’s an overall better performer than Danny Gokey. She was absolutely stunning in her duet with Adam Lambert yesterday, and her solo song was amazing. Shit, I can’t believe they let her go!
I have a theory that the votes don’t really matter because the producers decide who will win anyway, and I think the producers have a bias against younger contestants. I mean, look at American Idol Season 7 – David Archuleta should have deserved to be American Idol. I’m not a fan, but he has a more solid fan base of giggly impressionable teenage girls and Disney Channel-heads. David Cook is pretty much a blah rock singer, walking in the shadow of Chris Daughtry, which doesn’t happen to be very long or impressive to begin with. Ugh. Can you tell that I’m still annoyed by Allison’s elimination?
Other interesting things that happened in the results show: Paula Abdul performed her new single called “I’m Just Here for the Music”. You can tell that she’s totally lip-syncing, so I don’t see why she bothered with a headset mic. As for her outfit it was so… 80′s. After Paula’s performance, a reunited No Doubt showed up!!! Gwen Stefani bounced around the stage with “I’m Just a Girl”. Apparently, No Doubt is writing a new album! How exciting, I loved No Doubt in high school and I never really liked Gwen’s solo crap.
It goes without saying that the flamboyant, talented Adam Lambert should be the next American Idol. Because if Danny or Kris bag it I swear to god I am not watching this show again.
