Horror Movie ...

Unfortunately, I couldn't hear much of Adam and Allison's duet because I'd clawed my own ears off during Gokey's craptastic screaming. Steven Tyler should sue.

Adam is determined to make a fan of me yet. Tonight wasn't my favorite performance of his, but of the 4, he was the best. I didn't think it was as *original* as many of his performances have been in the past, but I agree with Tee that he absolutely did it justice. And frankly, I'm glad he's back to the black nail polish, tight pants, emo hairstyle look. Clearly, his fans like it - and I wonder if the slow it down / clean-cut look wasn't turning some of them off.

I love Allison more and more each week. My favorite part was when she quipped back at the judges - just a little, not obnoxiously - because she has gotten guff for her lack of personality. This was clearly her week - she's been "the rocker" from day one. And I think she killed it. I selfishly wanted her to sing Jefferson Airplane only because that song reminds me of my Dad, but I will agree with Kara that her voice is Janis Joplin-esque and she sounded fantastic.

Kris tried. I think, given the fact that he is clearly never going to even try to be a rocker, he did his best. He picked Beatles ... which was probably the best he could do. He tried to make the song a little original. And, honestly, I didn't think it was that bad. I still like him. A lot.

The best part about Gokey's performance was when my husband hurt his throat doing the perfect impersonation of the scream - I wish I could download an audio clip. All I can say is: WTF?!?! I am glad that the judges didn't coddle him again. I hate everything about him, that's all I've got.

Slash was a surprisingly good mentor. He wasn't as drugged out as I thought he'd be. And I laughed out loud when they showed him in the audience with his 18 year old arm-candy. God, he's awesome.

There's not much to say about Kris and Gokey's duet. I was annoyed when Gokey was like "it was hard to pick out a song that suits both of us" because I imagine song selection going something like:

Gokey: "That one's not about a dead woman"
Kris: "How about this one?"
Gokey: "But that one doesn't have any mention of dead wives"
Kris: "How about Renegade?"
Gokey: "Only if I can sing louder than you and dance in front of you."
Kris: "Fine."

(Yes, I realize I'm a horrible person.) I agree with Tee that Gokey is the one that stunk it up. And I only think Simon said Kris was worse because they're clearly pushing their own agendas.

Adam and Allison - I'm SO glad they got to sing together. I think their voices really did complement each other, they didn't try to out-do each other, and I loved the whole performance. I'm glad that's how they closed the show.

Sadly, I'm afraid Allison might go home this week. It's wrong in about 6,000 ways. It's obvious who I think SHOULD go home - but we all know that's not going to happen.
