Idol Thoughts — 03.04.10

Another results night on American Idol. At the top of the show, Simon Cowell makes an admission that after watching the show at home, the judges gave some compliments last night that were undeserved. Naturally, he doesn’t name names. So let the speculation begin.

The group sing tonight? “I Got A feeling” by the Black Eyed Peas. The special performer? Last season’s Danny Gokey, singing his country single “My Best Days Are Ahead Of Me.” Hopefully for Danny, better (and more personal) singles are ahead of him. This one’s kinda “paint-by-the-numbers.” But country music is the right place for Danny, and his obvious vocal talent. I said several times last season I didn’t know if there was a viable marketing road for him on the pop side of things. So good on him.

Dismissed from the competition tonight were: John Park, Jermaine Sellers, Michelle Delamor and Haeley Vaughn.

As much as I appreciate Michelle’s attempt to surprise us by doing a Creed song last night, and acknowledge just how likable Haeley is, I’ll just say I Got A Feeling that America got it right tonight.

Whatcha think? Leave a comment.
