Top 9: Allison Iraheta leaves us with No Doubt

What is up with this show and big, audacious hair accessories?

Allison Iraheta

Allison had some God-awful thing in her hair tonight that reminded me of the monstrosity Carrie Underwood sported two weeks ago.

She sang "Don't Speak" by No Doubt, and I was so distracted by her baby Cyndi Lauper outfit that I didn't really totally grasp the performance.

Part of me thinks it was a little rough. I liked that she played the guitar a little bit, but it wasn't her strongest performance. She can sing, and I really wanted to see something other than her hair accessory shine.

Am I wrong?

    Has anyone seen what Gwen Stefani wears? That looked just like something she would wear... and if I remember right when Gwen recorded that song her hair was hot pink. It was all great in my book.

    First of all, Carrie Underwood did come out with huge hair when she sang "Alone" by Heart.

    And, again, who cares about her outfit? I thought she looked cute, and modern. She is a good singer. That's it. There is this tone to her voice I hear sometimes that I do not like at all. But I'm sure she will go far. Worse people have made it too far....David Cook?....Fantasia...

    Who cares what she wore or her hairstyle! If that was the case then how about Paula in that awful tutu last week. What is she 6 again? This 16 yr old has some pipes and she hasn't missed a week yet. Can't say that about Lil Rounds.

    Rocker Wanna Be ~ Someone please give this lost young girl a lesson on her hair and dress. I'm not buying her act, but at least do something with that racoon on her head. The clothes look like she pulled her oufits out of the goodwill sale rack. They are not flattering to her body and the colors blend with her hair. When I look at her I see Thick... Thick hair, Thick Clothes, Thick legs, Thick waist, Thick Image and it doesn't have to be.... Come on Idol what's happened you your stylist this season????

    She's got a great voice and is very talented (although she wasn't that good last night). Her outfits should not be part of the rating. She is who she is and I admire her audacity. What is she supposed to do? Dress up like Celine Dion and pretend to be someone else? How did Cyndi Lauper or Liberace ever make it?

    This is a case of the judges criticizing like a high school click....as if they're criticizing just because they can, almost as if they're TMZ; making a big deal out of nothing. Allison's look was actually a NON-issue. She was singing a song from a band whose front-woman makes Allison's outfil look like grandma's overall's!!! Give me a break....her outfit and hair were fantastic....even edgy...and fit the song. What mattered was her voice. Based on her previous performances....this was a 7 out of 10. Her raspy (and great) voice couldn't quite get Gwen's high notes. That's also not Allison's style, either. So, Allison did nothing negative. Not much positive...but nothing negative.

    Yes, I agree. Allison can sing and she will be able to sell records. I think the last two should be Adam and Allison. Yes, she may look offbeat fashion wise at 16 who wasn't or isn't if you are 16 now, but she can seriously sing and have a personality that would draw all the youngings and the not so young. So judges if you have any sense, those should be your last two and you can laugh to the bank. Just remember to thank me later. ok.

    I do not know any of the contestants just for the record. This girl can sing. I was surprise by the praise they gave that guy that always look scary to me. They are going to make another mistake again this season by letting a mediocre who cannot sell one record win. Remember JENNIFER HUDSON? LOOK WHO IS LAUGHING NOW. If they let this girl go, it would be another JENNIFER HUDSON episode all over again. She is destined to be "A MAJOR STAR". You can quote me later.

    This was the first time I actually liked her. She sounded better in the first half w/ the guitar though, a little screamy at the end. And I think she normally screams every song. Her voice is different– I guess an acquired taste?

    As far as the outfit goes, I like to think it's just the silly people in wardrobe who did that. 🙂

    She needs to stand a couple of feet behind the MIC and scream. She was screaming today, Danny was screaming, Lil Rounds sounded angry while singing, Megan and Anoop sounded friendly and it looked like a performance...simple, (a little boring) but anoop had a clear voice, good singing, boring outfit though.

    Allison was my pick of the girls. He has a remarkable voice and that is what should be judged, not her hair/clothes.
    If we judged her on that, then half of the rap singers we have, need to go (sagging pants).

    Allison may be 16, but she has alot more talent, then alot of people out there who make it big.
    Go Allison!

    Allison has such control with her voice that when she carries a note, it seems effortless. For those of you that thought her performance was lacking, go back and listen again.

    I love Allison. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) she does not have the emotional pain to make a great performance singing "Don't Speak." Also, American Idol is not a singing or vocal competition, it's an "idol" competition. Or should I say, a popularity contest. Singing skills are a large part but don't kid yourself, voters vote for the entire package.

    When they first came out on the stage at the beginning of the show and I saw what she was wearing, I went "what the heck is that", but you have to remember, she is only 16 and for her that was probably pretty funky.

    She did play the guitar a bit. A BIT being the operative word. It hang like an accessory on her arm during most of the song. I felt that more than the outfit and the hair made her look like a wannabe.

    I think she should lose the crazy hair color, do something like Alexis Grace – just a touch... She has a great voice but lose the guitar and stop trying so hard. Definitely, not her best performance either with the shouting.

    I don't get why they jumped the clothing issue. They have stylists and and advisers on the hair and clothing. So why jump on the girl?

    I'm so sick of the judges not giving the girl the credit she deserves. Last year they were too busy messing around with crayons to recognize that she gave the best performance of the night, and tonight they couldn't stop talking about her outfit. It's a singing competition, and they need to stop pimping those that don't deserve it (ahem – LIL – ahem) and start paying attention to the contestants that have the potential to be hot-selling recording artists.

  91. Wow.........

    Regardless of Allison's outfit...........she sang the crap out of that song, and it has become painfully obvious that the judges absolutely REFUSE to give her her due props because it might jeopardize their faves' chances. Disgusting. Especially when compared with the glowing feedback they gave Scott's BORING, BLAND performance. Ick.

    Even if she doesn't win, I think she will be Daughtry-esque and probably be the most successful of this season.

    OMG!! THAT'S IT!!! I couldn't put my finger on the rough 80's outfit.. but something reminded me of Kelly Osborne doing 'Papa don't preach' Made famous by another NEWS HOG, Madonna!! Speaking of which, let the woman adopt her babies!!!

    Way to go Allison, but please leave the clothing to the pro's.. unless they picked that outfit... FIRE THEM!!!!

    Not a fan of the outfit – however I think the judges (exception of Paula) are disrespectful of Allison's talent. She is one of the most consistent performers on the show – great voice plus personality and showmanship – without coming across as overconfident. Hopefully the public will keep Allison in the competition all the way to the top three. It is – after all – a singing competition.

    Seriously, are you just re-capping what the judges said and claiming it as your own review? Allison was good. Her outfit was a little funky, but who cares? She still sang better than anyone else so far tonight.

    This girl is heading for trouble. 16 and that precocious...not a good ending in store, for sure. Reminds me of Janis Joplin. And, on top of that, a horrible performance and the worst outfit ever. Did Scott dress her?

    You're not wrong but her hair was. Remember those little trolls with the hair that sits straight up? So ugly they were cute? 'Nuff said.

    I love her though. I'd buy her music. She needs a good producer and a better stylist and she's good to go.

    I completey agree that the outfit was completely distracting from her performance, which was just ok. At least she answered the question of what would you get if you crossed Cyndi Lauper & pebbles Flintstone....A mess!

    i don't know. i normally like this kid but I think I was expecting much more from her this week. The outfit looked a bit forced too.
