American Idol Lip Sync? 10 Hometown Heroes Results Night

final threeBen Stiller and the cast of the new movie “Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian” started the show promoting the opening this weekend. They also announced that the American Idol judges table would be the latest item of pop culture to be added to the museum.

Ryan Seacrest mentioned that 88 million votes were cast and just 1 million separated the top two vote getters.

“Break My Stride” Ford Video had the idols transforming obstacles with comic book powers to go for a ride in their car.

A young man named Noah from Rwanda sang a song he learned in English just this week. It was an upbeat song with hard to understand lyrics and a weird mix of voices–very probably performed live–not a lip sync.

Videos were shown of the idol’s return to their hometowns. Danny Gokey was filmed in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, Kris Allen went to Conway, Arkansas, and Adam Lambert was seen in San Diego, California. All were shown on local TV and radio programs along with a day’s worth of personal appearances. Tens of thousands of fans turned out for each of the homecomings.

Jordan Sparks, the season six American Idol winner, sang her new song “Battlefield”. It was definitely live, and just alright.

Katy Perry sang her new song “Waking Up in Vegas”. She appeared wearing an Elvis-like costume with “Adam Lambert” embroidered in the cape, and obviously performed live.

There was no group performance this week.

It was announced that Kris Allen would be in the finals next week. Then it was announced that Adam Lambert would be competing against him, sending Danny Gokey home to Milwaukee.

Next week is the final program of the season. Adam was my early pick to win at the beginning of the season. His performances have all been near flawless. Kris has gotten progressively better since the beginning and is obviously very popular with the girls, but he has had a few disappointing performances along the way. mike coke 2Based on a full season’s worth of singing, Adam Lambert has the best chance of becoming this year’s American Idol. There is still one more night of performances, and they usually have to sing an unknown, relatively lame, sappy song. The whole season comes down to how they perform this song and how America votes. I’ll be watching from my couch ath the Munro House with an ice cold beverage in my red Coca-Cola judge’s cup. I’ll be voting until the battery in my phone dies.
