Gokey v. Downey

Thursday, April 30, 2009
At least I'm not the only one who thinks that Danny Gokey looks a LOT like Robert Downey, Jr.

From day one when he auditioned I kept waiting for him to come out & say they were related or something. He looks just like a young Downey to me. Though, until I started looking for pictures, I didn't have a clue that Downey even sang. He's not bad. I'm not going to rush out & buy one of his CD's, though or anything like that.

Every season on Idol (that I watch) I always root for the rockers. They are always my favorite. Adam has been a favorite this year, but he's falling a little for me - mainly b/c he has moved away from that rocker image when he first started the show. He's a brilliant entertainer, but now more of the flamboyant, theatrical side is coming out in him (which is still good) and he's lost that rocker edge that made me first like him. Allison still has it...I still like her as much as I ever did. After last night, I think my prediction of who is going to win is a bit altered, though. I thought Adam would win b/c he was the most popular (b/c you know at this point it's about popularity, b/c they are all amazing), but now I think it could quite possibly be Danny. He is so good, too. I predicted these four to make it, but I don't think I could make a true prediction about who is going to win at this point.

I'm anxious for next week, though since it's Rock & Roll week. I think Adam and Allison are going to shine and it's going to be the Adam that I liked when the season started.
