First off, Anoop Desai redeemed himself after that DISASTROUS performance of Michael Jackson's "Beat It" last week. Tonight he sang the Willie Nelson classic, "You are always on my mind" and nailed it. Lately, he has picked young, upbeat songs which is fine, but last week, LORD, I was with Simon he could have easily LEFT. Tonight as Simon stated he, "Went from zero to hero". Yes, he was good.
Danny Gokey. He is the one to take down. He has that Michael McDonald thing going. Again, he started off in low caliber to pick it up to fervor by the end. The son was Carrie Underwood's, "Jesus Takes the Wheel". My only thing about him, he need to start switching it up. Starting off slow and clinching it in the end is good, but it can become redundant.
Megan Joy sang Patsy Cline's "Walkin' After Midnight". I liked the performance, it was different and she made this classic her own version. Will she win it all? No, the competition, especially from the men, is too steep, but she will hang around until next week.
Matt Giraud was last and for many maybe the best. He sang Carrie Underwood's "So Small" and nailed it. Totally memorable performance.
Kris Allen, singing "To Make You Feel My Love". He was good but may be overshadowed by Anoop and Danny's performance.
And a hot mess tonight, Adam Lambert. Loved him last week, hated his performance this week.
Everyone else, meh, even Lil Rounds. Love her but the song was just OK, for me.
Alexis Grace was voted off.
