American Idol Top 5 Made Me Do Something I've Never Done Before

Never in the history of my watching American Idol--and I've watched at least part of each season since the show began--have I ever ordered through iTunes any of the show's songs. I've never bought any of the Idol albums or singles when they've been released on CD either. But after seeing the Top 5 perform "Rat Pack Standards Last Night," that's all changed.

Today I pre-ordered Danny Gokey's "Come Rain or Come Shine," Adam Lambert's "Feeling Good," and Allison Iraheta's "Someone to Watch Over Me" for my MP3 player. Danny's rendition of Come Rain or Come Shine was what made me say, I'm going to order. I decided to get Adam and Allison's MP3s later. WOW! That was some note Adam hit at the end of "Feeling Good," and I don't care what Simon says, Allison was great.

Kris Allen and Matt Giraud were o.k., but I liked Adam, Allison, and Danny more. However, as suggested, Simon thinks Allison is in trouble. He also thinks Matt was stellar singing "My Funny Valentine." It's one of my favorite songs, but I'm with Randy on Matt. The dude was a little pitchy. I enjoyed Kris singing "The Way You Look Tonight" but think I like him more on video than on my music player. He probably has young girls swooning all over America with his dreamy eyes.

This year's group has been better overall than those from previous years, but somewhere around the top 9 or so, I stopped doing recaps. Still, here is the link too all my posts on AI. For recaps I favor Elisa Camahort's posts, but I don't think she's done her Top 5 recap yet.
