First off, to the Producers of American Idol:
What you did tonight was one of the stupidest things I've ever heard. Sacrificing the judges comments on the performance for arguably more commercial time is the most annoying when a judge is cut off after a single sentence so we can go to SEVEN minutes of commercials. I'd argue that since you decide to destroy your own show for the sake of commercial dollars, I would on principal not purchase from anyone who advertised during that time. However, it is impractical to actually implement a threat, but I refuse to watch them. I now deliberately watch the show on DVR and fast forward through the commercials. Second point: running over isn't cool. I didn't see Adam's performance last week, and I wish I had. Next time cut out that damned Ford Commercial that played six times in the previous intermissions before cutting off judges next time.
I know that Adam is an amazing artist, but Simon was right on the money tonight when he said that there would be a part of the audience that would not like his interpretation of "Born to be Wild." I'm not a fan of Adam's style, and to be brutally honest most of the time his performances make my ears hurt from the high pitches and the semi-screams into the mic. Its not my type of music, though I can appreciate he does have quite a talent.
Allison, Anoop, and Danny--they rocked my socks off!! I love "Don't Want to Miss A Thing" and "Everything I do, I Do it for You" and Allison and Anoop did amazing renditions of them. Steven Tyler and Bryan Adams would be, I think, impressed with their interpretations. I just <3 Danny's voice and soul that goes into his songs. Again, Simon was right--Dump the Harp-- but the vocals gave me warm fuzzies.
