Let’s just recap last night a bit. Then under the cut I’ll do pics and review and setlist and all that good stuff 🙂
1. Had tickets, then didn’t
2. Got 8th row, 6th row popped up right after
3. Took an HOUR to get off the exit and find parking
4. Squeezed in such a tight spot, I barely was able to get out of my car.
5. As I walked in, music was starting. (Luckily, just the intro videos!)
6. Sat down and women next to me are whispering about me and looking at me. One goes “FYI, but my husband is coming BACK” and motions like his seat is my seat. I tell her “but this is MY seat” and she looks at her ticket to realize SHE CANT READ. Mayyybe read before accusing me of stealing your seat? (This happened to me at the Red Sox game too, apparently I look like I can’t read or count. Trust me, I can. At least when it comes to tickets~!)
7. AND KRIS ALLEN WAS TOO SICK TO SING
9. The door to the parking garage I came through was LOCKED (but thankfully I found my car)
10. There was a ton of construction on the highway on the way home
definitely in the bottom as far as concert experiences go. unfortunately.
Under the cut I’ll try to be a bit happier 😉
In Love With A Girl, Gavin DeGraw
Michael was up first. I can never remember the order they were voted out. So I’m like.. wait.. he was kicked out before she was? and stuff like that throughout the show lol The crowd didn’t really seem into him, but I think he did a great job and he just kept waving to everyone. Super cute.
Put Your Records On, Corrine Bailey Rae
Tears Dry on Their Own, Amy Winehouse
Megan was better than I expected she would be, but wasn’t overly impressive or amazing. I’ve read other reviews that said she was… so either those people need new ears or perhaps she also has the bug? Who knows. Glad she only did 2 songs though.
Bend & Break, Keane
A Thousand Miles, Vanessa Carlton
Scott gave us all a high five and was talking about how his and Ryan’s hi-five was the “high five heard round the world” He tried to joke a bit but they all seemed to fall flat. He sounded great though, even though I hear after Kris he is probably the next sickest.
Be Without You/Just Fine, Mary J. Blige
No One, Alicia Keys
Single Ladies (Put a Ring on It), Beyoncé
Lil sounded really raspy. Again, don’t know if it’s the bug or if she’s just strained from performing night after night. She rocked at doing the Single Ladies dance. And there was some guys standing next to the side of the stage doing all the choreography with her. Very entertaining.
Always On My Mind, Willie Nelson/Elvis Presley
My Prerogative, Bobby Brown
Anoop BROUGHT IT. Boy can sing and boys got moooves! Totally impressed with his set. I mean, I knew he was good in the original auditions but on the show he seemed to lose that edge he had. (Heck, he didn’t make the Top 12!) But he can definitely sing. And dance!
Hard to Handle, Otis Redding/Black Crowes
Georgia on My Mind, Ray Charles/Hoagy Carmichael, Stuart Gorrell
You Found Me, The Fray
Matty G was awesome too. He has a great voice. Though didn’t really seem to have the fanbase during the show. (He definitely does now though!)
Megan & Lil: Can’t Take My Eyes Off of You, Four Seasons/Andy Williams
Scott & Matt: Tell Her About It, Billy Joel
Michael: Suspicious Minds, Elvis Presley
Anoop, Matt, Scott, Michael, Lil, Megan: Beggin’, Four Seasons/Madcon
I really liked the medleys and them all singing together. For me this was the best part of the show. Little did I know what was coming juuust after.
Sick Kris 🙁 🙁
So What, Pink
Cry Baby, Garnet Mimms/Janis Joplin
I was incredibly devastated during Allison’s set. But she is amazing! So talented for being so young. She had great stage presence too.
P.Y.T. (Pretty Young Thing), Michael Jackson
Maria Maria, Santana
What Hurts the Most, Rascal Flatts
My Wish, Rascal Flatts
Gokey still can’t dance, but he tried.
(love this shot)
Whole Lotta Love, Led Zeppelin
Mad World, Tears for Fears/Gary Jules
Slow Ride, Foghat (with Allison Iraheta)
Life on Mars/Fame/Let’s Dance, David Bowie
Adam sounded like a chipmunk during Starlight. And I think the girl in front of me noticed too because when he started she turned to her friend and gave a “WTF?” look.. and I’m sure I looked about the same. I don’t even understand where that voice came from but it was only for that one song. I stood for his set, because if not I wouldn’t be able to get pics. And then I was sad when I got good pictures. I was just.. completely sad the whole second act.
Group Idol Finale
Entire Group(-Kris): Don’t Stop Believing, Journey (with a chorus of Steam’s Na Na Hey Hey Goodbye)
