Well well well, what can I say? It’s the second year in a row that boys are actually the ones battling it out for the Idol finals! Alright, don’t get me wrong, I expected our little girl Allison to actually make it to the Idol finals, but for some reason, she got the boot this week, despite her great cover of that hit by Alice Cooper, “School’s Out”. Her number was definitely edgy, thanks to all the black leather, but I guess it didn’t get all the votes it needed.

            So now we have a sausage fest for the finals, and everybody at this adam lambert rock week1point is pretty much rooting for their own favorites, Adam for the Idol die-hards, the Gokster for the loyal ones, and Kris for all the ladies, single or not! But seriously, I think all of them really deserve to be in on the win, but the judges will definitely be confused before they can actually really decide, that’s for sure!

            Another highlight of this week’s episode is when Paula took to the stage—it had everybody saying whoa! and wow! at the same time. We all know how big she was in the 80s, and she proves that she’s still got it in her with the debut of her new single, Í’m Just Here for the Music”. She can still give Britney a run for her money, hahaha!

            danny gokey rock weekNewly-reunited No Doubt also blew the house down to complement the rockin’ theme if this weeks ep—they’re back and they just seem to have a blast now more than ever, just like they did way back in 1995, or maybe even better! But well, of course they get old, so the still-hot Gwen Stefani ended up doing some pushups after she got exhausted doing two numbers. Whew!

            Then there’s Chris Daughtry—also debuting his band’s new single, “No Surprise”. I still wonder why he didn’t make it into the finals way back in Idol Season 4, but glad that he still made it into his career nevertheless.

           kris allen come together1 Next week seems to be pretty poppy with Katy Perry and Jordin Sparks—pretty hot (I know) but it says a lot about the fierce competition from the boys! I am curious to find out their personal choices for the songs they are supposed to sing, and I am actually surprised with myself—I am now rooting for Kris Allen for the win! There, I said it. Must be the way he plays his guitar—sort of reminds me of myself! Haha!

            Let’s keep on being Idol addicts! The finals are just getting to be too close! Just enjoy the ride, boys and girls!

karenHello, hello! Another week as we go closer and closer to the finals of our favorite show! Imagine that?! I can’t actually believe how fast it is going, but well take it from the old saying that time flies when you’re having fun! And every week, I always enjoy giving you my own updates on this series that we all so love to watch!
Right now, even though I am in the midst of doing a series of shows and promoting my album, I still make the time to watch American Idol Season 8—it just cannot be missed! The performances are always just amazing, and it’s going to be a really hard choice for the judges and the voters (including you!) to decide on who’s going to be this season’s Idol.
adam and allison rock duet1This week had a more challenging twist for our favorite contestants because it is Rock Week! All that headbanging and guitar screeching makes way for our Idols’ great voices—how great a combination can that be? I love rock music in the sense that it always makes you feel alive with its rhythms, although I must say it is a pretty much a very tricky genre in terms of vocals.
And yet, as we can all predict, all the performances are just mind-blowing! Allison Iraheta, lovely in black leather, is definitely cut out for the part with her bluesy voice and her cover of Alice Cooper’s “School’s Out”. Kris Allen, who I have really gotten to like more and more as he showcased his talent in this competition, chose a rock classic: “Come Together” by the Beatles (I just love them!) and just shone through along with his guitar skills, which is one of the things the girls like most about him (oh, am I included in that one?)!
Adam Lambert continues to get most of the votes—and who can blame his fans? I really think he can perform his best from genre to genre, he’s just really versatile at that! He took on another rock legend, Led Zeppelin’s “Whole Lotta Love”, and just took the stage like a rock god—he even got a standing ovation for that one! Who can forget the Gokster?! Not me of course. His cover of Aerosmith’s “Dream On” got mixed reviews, but I sort of liked his scream at the end of the song, it was just out of the ordinary!
And then they did the duets! This was my favorite part for this episode. Kris and the Gokster went on first with a version of “Renegade” by Styx. I know it’s kinda awkward to pair two guys together, but the way they just blended their harmonies impressed even the judges! Adam and Allison seem to really have that rockin’ chemistry as they covered Foghat’s “Slow Ride”—they sure looked comfortable together as they were both reaching for those high notes. Randy even called them the rock stars of the season.
Next week, let’s brace ourselves as the heat of the competition gets more and more intense, even though summer’s almost over! I know you’ll all agree, but all I just want to say is, Idol definitely rocks!

American Idol Fab Four is back on the centerstage tonight as they continue their quest of realizing their Idol dream.

The Idol stage suffered from technical accidents but as they say, “The Show Must Go on”. It will be a first as the Top 4 will be paired up and will perform Rock classics.

Slash (former lead guitarist of legendary rock band Guns ‘n Roses) is this week’s mentor.

Adam Lambert, “Whole Lotta Love” by Led Zeppelin – Randy thinks Adam and Slash should do a record. Kara says Adam should be a rock god. Whole lot-a perfect says Paula while Simon thinks it was one of his best performance and nobody can top that.21672_2

Allison Iraheta, “Cry Baby” by Janis Joplin – Randy did not love the song choice. Kara thinks Allison was little nervous but likes Allison transformation when she’s in the stage. Paula thinks Allison is fearless. Simon likes her terrific vocals but thinks that Allison is trying too hard and Simon recommended a Queen song.

Kris Allen and Danny Gokey, “Renegade” by Styx – Randy likes the harmony and thinks that Kris and Danny compliment each other. Kara says both guys had some moments. Paula says it was powerful and compelling. Simon thinks Danny was better than Kris.

Kris Allen, “Come Together” by The Beatles – Randy like the way Kris play the guitar and he enjoyed it. Kara however thinks it was not a great performance. Paula says Kris’ artistic ability and signature makes it a great performance. Simon says it’s like eating ice for lunch, boring and jammed.

Danny Gokey, “Dream On” by Aerosmith – It was alright according to Randy but an A+ for effort. Kara thinks Danny took it a little too far.  Paula isn’t sure about Danny’s song choice. Simon didn’t like Danny’s last note and it was over the top but thinks Danny will be safe tonight.

Allison Iraheta and Adam Lambert, “Slow Ride” by Foghat – Randy thinks Adam and Allison should do a duet on their albums and it was a bomb. It was a perfect marriage and there were totally in sync says Paula. In the battle of duets they win this one and because of that, Allison was given a good chance of staying put by Adam says Simon.

See who goes home! Results show is tomorrow and Eye on Idol has it LIVE! Tune in regularly to Eye On Idol Friendster page for the latest American Idol news, weekly predictions and betting tips.

kkong1igh, how time flies! Summer is almost over and the rains are now starting—it seemed only yesterday that I was sharing my picks in the Top 36 and now, we are almost down to the finals of our favorite show, American Idol Season 8!

And as I said before, this is where the real competition starts, as we see the “true colors” of our favorites, with their talents and performance level. This is the part that can get a little tough for the contestants, and I can just imagine the pressure that they feel. But you know, once you’re actually up on that stage, all the nervous feelings sort of stop, and you actually find your confidence, most especially if you are really passionate about what you’re doing, and I think they all are.

This week was a treat for us fans not only because we see the all the best in our favorites, but I loved the musical selections too. This week, they performed standards from the golden age of jazz and the classics, kris-allen-rat-packwhich really tested their vocal flexibility. I must say the selections were all great!

Hooray for the Goksters! Danny Gokey was just simply stellar, in Paula’s words, as he did his version of “Come Rain Come Shine”. I really think he can make it in this genre, the emotions really shine through with his bluesy vocals.

Kris Allen, with his usual charms, was accompanied by piano and some horns as he did “The Way You Look Tonight”, which is one of my favorites of all time, but it’s a pretty challenging song too with its low keys. As usual all his girl fans were screaming, and I really think he stands a good chance to win in this competition too, although Simon doesn’t think so!

Matt Giraud’s version of “My Funny Valentine” was low key as well but very sincere, and I am impressed with the fact that he took on a very challenging song. Simon even called it “the only believable, authentic song I have heard tonight”, and I think that must have been the best compliment ever, but unfortunately, Matt got eliminated for real, but it was fun while he stayed on in the competition and even got a judge’s save for the first time in American Idol history.

Adam Lambert had the best entrance I have seen this season! It kind of reminded me about Broadway actually, with the stairs lighted pink and his white suit. His version of “Feeling Good” was great as usual, he seems to care about winning and giving out all his best all the time.

allison-iraheta-rat-packBut the best performance of the night belongs to Allison Iraheta, with her version of “Someone To Watch Over Me” that made me fall in love over and over again. I can’t believe she’s just turned 17, her voice really is one of a kind! And with her very innocent and tender performance, I’m sure she deserves a spot in the finals too.

OK, here’s the part where I get confused because everyone seems to deserve a spot in the finals! But of course this is a competition and we should just keep crossing our fingers and know that only the best can win…can’t wait for next week! Keep safe now!

jim1Hey hey! Another week whizzed by, and we are getting closer and closer to finding out who’s gonna be the next American Idol! Actually I am getting more and more curious each week, because surprises just pop up when you least expect them right? Maybe, just maybe, the winner will be turn out to be not the one we thought.

Since we are down to just four of the most talented and lucky contestants that the whole world is all voting for, I want to share my thoughts on each of their advantages and what can possibly make them win this season’s competition. While the newly-eliminated Matt Giraud (who I think has nine lives!) thinks that Idol is just a popularity contest, I think it’s a bit of that, but more.

Let’s start with Danny Gokey, who I know is an early favorite. Well, who wouldn’t like his success story? This worship director from Wisconsin has had a very touching story, the way he lost his wife before joining this competition. He has so far been very consistent with the votes as well as his performances. And this week, he proved his flexibility as he did the jazz classics too. Everybody likes the Gokster, don’t you?danny-gokey-rat-pack1

Well Adam Lambert is no stranger to fame. He lived a great deal in the limelight even before he joined Idol, being in several film and theater projects. David Cook said Lambert is actually his favorite, and there’s no question about his mind-blowing performances with his trademark falsetto. But right now I also hear some people complain that he’s become a little too good for this competition.

Just turned seventeen and having the time of her life, Allison Iraheta basically blossomed during this season. She wasn’t really one of the favorites during the start, but as weeks went by, her talent shone through. I just love her rockin’ style, and with her very heartfelt performance of “Someone To Watch Over Me” this week, I’m sure you’re bound to fall in love with this girl, if you haven’t yet.

Then there’s the dark horse of this season, Kris Allen, who has really proved himself to be one of the contestants to watch out for this season. Not a lot of people took him seriously at first, but now everyone thinks it might be a Kris-Adam faceoff in the finals. Amazing how someone can do a complete turnaround in a matter of weeks!

As Idols, each of them may have the voice, but each of them also has that unique edge that can take them to the top with the help of your votes of course. I need to think really hard before I tell you who I think is up for the final faceoff. Better yet, let’s wait for the results of Rock Week—then let’s make up our minds! In the meantime, just keep on voting!
