American Idol - Top 7 perform


April 14th, 2009 - Top 7 Perform Movie Songs
Here's my reactions from this week's performances. Overall a good show, but a few hits and misses. And can I just say, Quentin Tarantino as a guest mentor? I didn't like that. He was so wired and yes he knows music, but he's not a singer and shouldn't be giving singers - singing advice. Good to see the Inglorious Basterds footage though. Then they keep the Quentin packages, but don't allow all 4 judges to give their critiques, but only 2 at a time. DUMB! Hated that. Just make the show longer. I do want to watch FRINGE, but I also want to watch my Idol unfiltered. Just my thoughts. Let's get down to the performances...

Alison - "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" by Aerosmith. She did great. Not my favorite performance of hers, but she did a great job and made a fantastic song choice.
Anoop - "Everything I Do (I Do It For You)" by Bryan Adams. I love this song. Anoop did a great job with it. I know Quentin told him to rough it up a lot, but I thought he did a great job with the song. Great Job!
Adam - "Born to Be Wild". OK - I know a lot of people loved it. I'm not denying the guy is good. This performance is exactly what I don't like about this guy. All the squealing and Mick Jagger posing. Didn't care for it.
Matt - Another Bryan Adams song "Have You Ever Really Loved A Woman". I thought he did a fantastic job with this song. I agree with Randy & Kara that he may have tried to do a little too much with it, but overall I really enjoyed his performance and would rank it up there with some of his best.
Danny - "Endless Love". I didn't love this for Danny. I thought he was emotional and I connected to that, but he sang the song as the song. For me, that song is always a duet (Lionel Richie/Diana Ross & Luther Vandross/Mariah Carey) and I just couldn't get into fully since it was only Danny. He was good, but I would've loved him to sing a different song.
Kris - "Once" from the movie of the same name. I liked this. I didn't gush over it like the judges did. Too soft for me and I would've like him to do something new with the song. But I liked it.
Lil - "The Rose" originally by Bette Midler. Lil tried to change it up a bit and add a little gospel to it. I'm really not sure what type of album this girl would put out . For me, Lil's performance was pretty good. But I know that this girl can do more.

Elimination Night brought us the crazy judges save with Matt G. I thought this whole concept was a bit contrived and I hated it. I'm glad they used it and I'm glad it's over. Let's get rid of this next year.

Thinking about getting a car insurance quote?
[url=http://safe-car.org]Car Insurance[/url]
A growing number of people are dropping their auto insurance to try to save money, according to a recent study by the Insurance Research Council (IRC). If the current rate of unemployment continues, the IRC estimates that the national uninsured rate will climb from 13.8 percent in 2007 to 16.3 percent in 2010. With that many people driving without coverage, it's dangerous to be uninsured. But how much car insurance do you really need?
If you're like many people feeling the pinch, your inclination is to get the bare minimum of insurance coverage required by the law in your state. That's a good place to start, though those minimums may not fully protect you -- or your assets -- if you file a claim. We recommend getting more than the minimum coverage unless you are driving a beater and have no assets to protect.
