5) Lil Rounds
This was a good week all around. Now that Scott is gone we can start to get serious. I have Anoop being last, but it was still a pretty decent performance. Matt once again sounded very good, but he is just not dynamic enough to be memorable. Lil Rounds always sounds good but she is still suffering. Allison was stellar, but still doesn’t crack the top three. Danny was as good as always, though I wonder if he’s started to sound the same, like he’s doing the same kinds of songs. And I could have gone either way on Adam and Kris, but I think Kris wins because he performed a song I absolutely love. Adam chose a difficult song and he made it rad. That dude is just a great entertainer. The surprise of the night was Quentin Tarantino actually having intelligent things to say to the singers. Very odd.
