Yeah it did resemble the blazing balls of disco hell…..

Was anyone else terribly bored by disco week? I watched the whole show, rewatched the clips at the end of the show and within 30 minutes promptly forgot every single performance. I even just re-watched the clips and still barely remember them. Nothing stood out to me tonight and I don’t really know why!

Here’s the rundown:

lil-rounds-disco-weekLil RoundsI’m Every Woman” Chaka Khan

She finally went back to singing what she knows: divalicious sound. But it’s like the last few weeks of being battered by Simon in judging has sucked her soul out of her singing. It was okay, I just wasn’t wowed.

What I love is that her hair changed again! The stylists can’t seem to decide on her personal style. Maybe that’s why she can’t seem to define herself as an artist yet, In any case I think she’s had more hair changes than Sanjaya.

kris-allen-disco-weekKris AllenShe Works Hard for the Money” Donna Summer*

I will never hate on a hot boy playing guitar. I was in the kitchen making dinner when I heard that Kris was singing this song and came running into the living room in horror. But he changed it up and totally blew me away! And I may add, that rendition would fit in perfectly down here in Southwest Florida with all the open-air music venue/bars…. just in case he feels so inclined to stop by and sing it for me!

Side note: Really sick of Simon and Paula’s drama. Or at least Paula. There was a big whole thing about Kris wearing women’s panties or something equally as stupid. It’s not even funny anymore, it’s obnoxious and irritating. And really isn’t fair to these contestants that work so hard to impress us. We don’t even get a chance to get to know the contestants anymore because the judges spend so much time babbling.

danny-gokey-disco-weekDanny Gokey September” Earth, Wind and Fire

You know I love me some Danny. But I do not love Danny doing disco. Judges liked it but I just wasn’t feeling it. I

like my Danny doing ballads and being all soulful. Not dancing around the stage a la Taylor Hicks! Not my fave choice for me for him.

allison-iraheta-disco-weekAllison Iraheta, “Hot Stuff” Donna Summer*

This is why she is the only female left standing! Oh. My bad, forgot about Lil already.

This girl is so insanely talented. She blows me away every week. I feel the same as Randy, I didn’t love the arrangement and I wouldn’t rush out to buy it, but man, she sang the hell out of it!

Outfit was a little much. Ha. Just a tad.

adam-lambert-disco-weekAdam Lambert, “If I Can’t Have You” from Saturday Night Fever

Yes, I realize I’m the only person in America not loving up on Adam. I think he is extremely talented and his skills totally astound me. But I just don’t like him because I know I wouldn’t buy any of his albums.

This week he came close to changing my mind. I thought the song was amazing. Until he did his little Mick Jagger screeching yell in the middle and it brought me crashing back to earth, shuddering violently. Too bad. Thought it was really fantastic.

The crazy Elvis hair was back this week but much more contained and not as slicked with oil. I think I kinda liked this look for once.

matt-giraud-disco-weekMatt Giraud, “Staying Alive” Bee Gees

Ah Matty. Judges saved him last week and I was really happy about that because there are weeks when I really love him. And then there are others when I wonder what the hell he is thinking.

This was one of those latter weeks. Compared to the other leading guys, he just didn’t do enough with the song to make it his own. Really wish he had picked something more soulful and JT like to play with!

anoop-desai-pink-suitAnoop DesaiDim All the Lights” Donna Summer*

Holy Outfit, Anoop-Dog! I like bits and pieces and love the pink but WOW. That was a whole lot of look for one little guy!

As for the singing and song: Singing, good; song choice and arrangement, YUK. The last note was a hot mess. I agree with Simon, I think the song would have been a huge “moment” if he had just kept it slow the whole time and didn’t let the tempo come in because you could see it coming…..like a train wreck…but you prayed it wouldn’t happen. And it did. Then it got uber-cliched!

—————

That’s it! Say Goodbye to Lil, Matt and Anoop. Oh, yeah only two go home. I think I have to rewatch Matt and Anoop’s videos to really decide who I want to see one more week.
