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!
