If you haven’t had the opportunity to check out last night’s “American Idol“, feel free to take a gander at my very detailed review here, along with the original songs that all of the contestants literally butchered.
I’ll have to preface all of this by saying that I was unimpressed by any of the singers last night. I’m a rock fan to the core, so none of the contestants could hold a candle to Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, The Beatles, or Aerosmith.
Having said that, Adam Lambert didn’t suck all that much with “Whole Lotta Love” and Allison Iraheta didn’t murder her song, “Cry Baby” too badly.
It came down to Danny Gokey and Kris Allen, in my opinion, for butchering Aerosmith and The Beatles, respectively. Then the two of them collectively butchered some Styx. Yay for duets.
Paula Abdul sang her new song, “(I’m Just) Here For The Music” on tonight’s show and she did as well as can be expected for a recovering drug addict. Is it me or it pure coincidence that she released that information after telling us so many times that she’s not addicted to anything, to further her own career? I guess that’s showbiz for you. Lip sync’d? You tell me.
In an ending note, Allison Iraheta didn’t make the cut, so you can expect to see her on the morning talk show circuit as early as Friday.
