I do think Simon may leave after ten years. He does not need any more money, and owns many shows already in production. Then again, FOX may offer
other incentives for Simon to stay, so it is to early to tell.
On to the show:
I thought Lil over sung "The Rose" last night. While I understand her wanting to inject herself into a song, "The Rose" is one of the most
beautiful of simple ballads. Singing it without all the screeching would have done her a big favor. She does have a big fan base, so I do expect her
Danny and Matt seem a little boring. I know what they are going to do each week. They are much better than Scott at what they do, but they like to
play it safe. I think Matt is going home tonight, as he never really had a high fan following to begin with.
I like Allison, but not the song. She does have a great voice, but this week just was OK. I do agree with Simon that she is the best female vocalist,
but she may be in danger as she also does not have the fan base.
Anoop did surprisingly well with a Bryan Adams song. I am not the biggest Bryan Adams fan, but Anoop did well with his vocals. Message to Anoop Dogg:
stay away from R&B. Power ballads are your strength.
Kris picked an unknown song and did a good job with it. I think he and Adam may make it into the top two, but I think the producers have preordained
Danny the winner. Danny is a safe choice to sell to the teenybopper market that buys those albums.
Adam is always entertaining to watch. At this point he does not care if he wins the title as he is a star already. The problem with winning the show
is having to do the songs the producers want, and having little say in the matter.
If it was a true contest, Adam would blow all the others in the dust. He is way over their league and it shows every time. I find myself wondering
what the other singers sang as I have a hard time remembering them. I never forget what Adam does. He will put butts down in $50 concert seats. I
can't say the same about the others.
