American Idol Recap: Movie Madness!

by at . Comments

The second best performance** on last night's edition of American Idol - during which finalists sang songs from various movies - belonged to Allison Iraheta.

We still can't get over the fact that this singer is only 16, as she belted out an Aerosmith classic, "I Don't Want to Miss a Thing," like it was written solely for her.

Following the audition, Simon Cowell said what's been on the minds of viewers for weeks: Iraheta is the only female with any chance to win this season.

Other top performances from the night included:

  • Danny Gokey, sticking with emotional ballades and belting out Lionel Richie’s “Endless Love." Paula Abdul described it as “a beautiful, beautiful rendition.”
  • Anoop Desai, who chose the Bryan Adams’ classic “(Everything I Do) I Do It For You,” from Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. Kara DioGuardi said it was one of the singer's top vocals: “I really felt connected to you.”
  • Randy Jackson and Kara were split on Kris Allen, as he chose an obscure song, “Falling Slowly,” from an obscure movie, Once. We thought it was cool he went with something that clearly had meaning to him.

** Because Adam Lambert clearly puts on the best performance every week, we wanted to give the second-best singer on the night a chance to shine. For the record: Lambert, as always, did not disappoint. Check out his incredible rendition of "Born to Be Wild" right now!

He is so overrated. I'm not saying he's not talented. I'm just saying that there are about 3 other contestants this year that are better than him.


Same - Adams good/talented etc..but I really don't get the hype :s..but OTT for me..but I guess he has the commerical package that they are looking for.
Personal faves are Anoop, Matt and Kris - don't think either will win, but look forward to hearing their stuff after Idol finishes :)
