Adam, Danny & Kris Deliver Goosebumps on American Idol

Great song choices, great arrangements and great vocal performances. The battle for the title of 8th American Idol is on as the final three contestants delivered the best show of the season!

Here’s the order of performances tonight:

Danny Gokey – “Dance Little Sister Dance” by Terence Trent D’Arby (click here to watch the video) – Randy Jackson said “The way to jump it off tonight. Sounded good. That was dope for me.” Kara DioGuardi said “This keeps you in his money spot but the dancing was a little to gyrating for me.” Paula Abdul said “I think you did really good. You let that magic part of your voice carry on.” Simon Cowell said “Vocally very very good. My problem was the toy saxophone solo in the middle. I think it was the wrong song.”

Kris Allen – “Apologize” by OneRepublic (click here to watch the video) – Randy Jackson said “I know that right now it is about who is going to win this thing. This is the kind of artist you can be. Nice, very nice.” Kara DioGuardi said “It was a confident performance but at this stage you have to be hitting it out of the park. I wanted you to make it more your own. Take more chances.” Paula Abdul said “That song sits in the right place with your voice. There was a bum note there that was loud but I am proud of you.” Simon Cowell said “It was the original but not quite as good.”

Adam Lambert – “One” by U2 (click here to watch the video) – Randy Jackson said “You are still in the zone. You have been hot since day 1. Unbelievable vocals. You are a really talented guy.” Kara DioGuardi said “You are an amazing strategist. You can change up the melodies and make it unbelievable. You did your own version.” Paula Abdul said “It was one brilliant song and one brilliant performance.” Simon Cowell said “I thought that was a brilliant song choice. You worked out what you wanted to do with it and it was a brilliant performance.”

Danny Gokey – “You Are So Beautiful” by Joe Cocker (click here to watch the video) – Randy Jackson said “You showed you are here because you can really really sing. Mad vocals.” Kara DioGuardi said “Everything you didn’t do in the first performance you did here. Stunning.” Paula Abdul said “You left all of us breathless. You infused your own thing into it. You nailed it.” Simon Cowell said “I wouldn’t have done the same arrangement. This is a singing competition and I would call that a vocal masterclass.”

Kris Allen – “Heartless” by Kanye West (click here to watch the video) – Randy Jackson said “This is gonna be one of the toughest voting nights. I like that version better than the original. You are in it to win it.” Kara DioGuardi said “Why didn’t you do that with Apologize. That was brave. Perfect, the tone, the pitch.” Paula Abdul said “You sang a song about Simon Cowell. This is what keeps you relevant.” Simon Cowell said “I had written you out of the competition but that has changed after that performance.”

Adam Lambert – “Cryin” by Aerosmith (click here to watch the video) – Randy Jackson said “You are one of the best we have ever had on this stage. You should make a rock album. You are a rock star.” Kara DioGuardi said “Amazing. We will see you at the finals.” Paula Abdul said “You set the bar so high in the sky. We will be seeing you next week and many years after that.” Simon Cowell said “It is very easy to assume you will sail through to the final.”
