American Idol Top 9 (Again)
Elvis is alive!!
Guest mentor for Tuesdays Elvis music was last years American Idol runner up, the flamboyant, Adam Lambert.
Opening the show, with her electric guitar, was the terrific Crystal Bowersox singing a great Elvis Gospel song "Saved." And again Crystal was right on!
Andrew Garcia followed with "Hound Dog" and he forgot it was ELVIS!!
Andrew lacked any energy and it was not good.
Tim Urban got all the "Teenie Boopers" crying with "Can't Help Falling In Love With You." To me, it was just ok.
Lee Dewyze, who lives right down the road in Mount Prospect,Illinois, cut loose with "Little Less Conversation." Lee brought it.
Aaron Kelly made a high school musical out of "Blue Suede Shoes."
Siobhan Magnus, sang "Suspicious Minds" and again showed her soft side and her great range but didn't please the judges.
Big Mike Lynche, who was saved by the judges last week, sang with deep feelings,"In The Ghetto." Ellen said she was glad they saved him and Simon said it was a trillion times better then last week.
"Sassy" Katie Stevens, who told Adam she was concerned with the previous critiques by the judges, let loose with "Baby What Do You Want Me To Do" and it was sexy and good vocals.
Casey James wrapped up the show with "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" but Casey changed the song so much it didn't even sound like Elvis' version and the judges weren't impressed.
Now two are going home since the judges used the save on Big Mike last week. So here's my picks for the bottom three: Andrew Garcia has run out of time. He should be sent home. Aaron Kelly will be gone also unless the "Teenie Boopers" save him. Last pick will probably be Siobhan Magnus and if Aaron stays then Siobhan is gone.
We'll see Wednesday.
