American Idol - Motown Week

Here is my recap on Motown week on AI, which was last night.  I still HATE the judges entrance.  I think it's cheesy, and I have no clue who in the heck dressed Paula.  She looked like she should be on the top of a little girls jewelry box.  That dress was just heinous.  Also every week she gets nuttier and nuttier.  Paula is definitely going off the rails of a crazy train.  I hope they ditch her next year but keep Kara around.

Matt Giraud
He sang Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get it On".  For the second week in a row, he actually picked a song that suited him and he did well on it.  I have to be honest though by the end of the night I forgot about his performance.

Kris Allen
He sang "How Sweet it is to be Loved by You".  He did well, vocals were perfect.  I have nothing negative to say about this guy.  I like him and hope he sticks around.

Scott MacIntyre
He sang "You Can't Hurry Love".  The background singers were cheesy, the arrangement was terrible and the music overshadowed his vocals (which are not that great to begin with in my opinion).  I think he may have dug his own grave on this one last night.  His days are definitely numbered on this show.  I pick he will be bottom three tonight.  He is just not interesting enough to stay around much longer.  The best part about this performance was the judges fighting and Paula handing Simon a box of crayons and a coloring book.  I wonder how long it took her to think of that clever one?

Megan Joy
Oh Lord help me.  She sang "For Once In My Life".  To be honest I'd never heard this song and I wasn't impressed.  I agree with Kara she would have fared better with something like "My Guy."  What gets me is that this gal is interesting, and she has a unique voice to her, but she keeps picking the WORST songs ever.  She is bottom three tonight.  Also, side note.  I hate that dancing hip twisting weird thing she does, but after her first performance she has obviously TRIED NOT to do it, and I think that is making her singing worse if you ask me.  Bring back the stupid looking dance.  I can overlook that if I can get some decent vocals from you.

Anoop Desai
He sang "Ooh Baby Baby".  His vocals sounded fine but to be honest he bored me to tears.  I couldn't wait for it to be over so we could go on to something more interesting (yes, like Adam I least he is interesting).  

Michael Sarver
He sang "Aint Too Proud to Beg", which is quite ironic since he is basically begging the audience for a spot in next weeks performance.  I agree completely with Simon, he is a nice guy but has absolutely NO chance of winning the competition.  He is another one for bottom three in my opinion.

Lil Rounds
Hated the dress, hated the hair, hated the song.  She sang "Heat Wave" and it sounded like the song was running away from her the entire time.  She just never really got it together.  

Adam Lambert
Ok.  I liked this performance.  He sang "Tracks of My Tears".  He ditched the Sharpee on his fingernails, the guyliner and the creepy clothes for a 1950's look that shocked us all.  This was the first performance I have liked by this guy and that hasn't totally creeped me out making me want to shower afterwards.  I'm still not a fan yet, but I'm not loathing him as much as I did last week.  He earned a little bit of respect from me last night.  Hey, at least I know every week this guy is going to come out and do something interesting.  

Danny Gokey
Danny sang "Get Ready".  It was fun, vocals were awesome as usual and his performance was great.  Danny worked that stage.  I love this guy.  

Allison Iraheta
Ok, can't believe she was bottom three last week.  She sang "Papa Was A Rolling Stone".  I can't believe this girl is sixteen.   She has some pipes.  Hopefully America voted and will keep her on, because she is definitely NOT bottom three material.

My prediction.  Bottom three: Scott, Michael and Megan Joy, with Michael going home.  Of course as we saw from last week a perfectly good singer can go home way before their time with Alexis getting the axe.  I'm totally bummed she is gone.  She was one of the best in my opinion and did not deserve the boot.

One last comment about last week.  Totally unfair what the judges did to Alexis.  Told her "depends on this performance if we will save you or not".  Then they don't even listen to her and do a "pretend"  discussion as if they were actually contemplating keeping her.  This act was extremely rude and unfair.


  1. I'm not quite sure how she died, but I know she passed away like two weeks before his audition.
