I have to admit that the show is getting a little anticlimactic for me now that it seems like the finale lineup is a forgone conclusion: Adam Lambert vs. either Danny Gokey or Kris Allen. (I'm hoping for Kris only b/c he's prettier to look at.)
Here's what I made of last night's show:
KRIS ALLEN: Passable, but a little wide-eyed and smarmy. And, dude, Gillette that shit above your lip!
I did like Simon's idea of Kris being " a little bit wet." I'll take Kris A LOT "Wet," preferably with an added warming sensation.
Allison Iraheta: Still my girl. Don't think she'll make it into the finals. But I'm ready to buy her album.
Matt Giraud: Oh, shit: Is he still on the show? I swear, I thought he'd been voted off. He's not improving, and he's singlehandedly setting male-hat-wearing back 20 years.
Danny Gokey: Everything Danny does lately is coming off as schtick to me. His voice is so overpowering that he needs to keep the arrangements spare. This was a big, brassy mess.
Adam Lambert: Same ole, some ole. But the ghosts of Freddie Mercury, Peter Allen, and Paul Lynde must be incredibly proud.
