Top 7: Safe or not?

** SPOILER ALERT: Wednesday night’s blog reveals the final result of the show. Do not continue reading the following entries of the blog if you do not want to know the result. **

They did it!!! They saved Matt!!!!

Matt Giraud

Ryan yells,  "Idol history has been made!"  Matt's in tears as the gang loves on him.

Of course, Simon has to be Debbie Downer and remind everyone that the bad news is this means that next week two people are going home.

More bad news - next week's theme is disco. *GROAN*

    I was thinking the save was wasted but honestly, even if Adam gets booted early and doesn't win, he WILL get a contract anyway. In fact, it might be best if he doesn't win because then he can do his own thing and not be bound to the American Idol's contract for a year, which usually means cheesy music and no individuality. Even if you do not like Adam's style (and for those of you men that hate him because you think he is gay and are homophobic :o) ), you cannot deny he has incredible vocals and great stage presence. Those of you say he is too theatrical.....have you seen photos from Brittany Spear's Circus tour?? Or Michael Jackson's tour?? Or almost any other popular singers' tours? It is all about theatrics- who wants to see a person in concert who just stands there and sings throughout the whole 2 hours??

    Matt is my favorite...he needs to feel more confident in himself., fake it till he makes it....his second song of the night was great (I did catch the faulty high note..but everyone seemed to ignore it...stick with R&B Matt..and sing from your soul..and you'll make it right to the top).....

    So dumb. That Judges Save was supposed to be used for someone that SHOULD be the winner, not someone that is mediocre. What is going to happen when there are four people left, and Adam has a bad week, and manages to get voted off? We'll be looking at Daughtry all over again. Stupid judges.

    One of the weeks has to be the SAVE...... Matt is good enough for that! Good chance he won't win the entire competition, but he is greatly talented. I like his personality quite a bit. Loved the song too! Sorry about the disco bit.....Yikes! It's a joke, right?....... Who would EVER sing Disco these days? I enjoyed it somewhat then....but it's just funny stuff now......Not like a classic genre of music such as; classical, R&B, rock, country (some of it anyway) :), et al....just not DISCO for heaven's sake..... Ha! I hope the costumes are good! 🙂
    Glad you're staying Matt. I like everybody up there....

    Most of the posters don't even know the rules. They can't use the save at any time. They have to use it before the top five or it's gone. And some of the posters think it should have been used for Lil?!?! Are you serious? She finally listened to the judges, but it was too little, too late! Matt has been consistent throughout the show. He deserved it.

    I am happy Matt got the save. Hes not going to be #1, but this save will help him be remembered by all you people who thinks he won't be remembered. I don't know what people hear in Danny. I would never buy his CD's. The person who really took a bad hit this year was Alexis Grace. Lil and Megan have both been big disappointments. Lil only had one good week and Megan did not have any good weeks. I think Adam is very talented, but I 'm not crazy about that kind of music. I think Allison is very talented also. I think Kris is adorable and talented, and his voice is certainly better than Danny's voice. I probably would not buy his CD's either. I will buy Matt's and Alexis's and maybe Anoop's CD's if he sings slow songs. Adam is right, you either like or you don't like it. That what music is all about.

    Lil needs to GO. She doesn't listen to the judges and she is really not that god..

    On a side note how many people noticed the MAJOR flaw in last nights show? So the show rund 8-9CST that is 6-7 (in CA). In the limo ride to the movie opening it looked as if it was NOON out the window. You figure that the movie was around two hours (give or take) meaning they made it to the theater at best 7:15-7:30pm (okay still possiable for daylight) provideing it started at 7:30 plus 2 hours puts it at 9:30 (CA TIME) and the Sun was still out and shining BRIGHT!

    Horrible decision. What a waste of the save! The judges knew that disco week was next week. What are they going to do if one of the top 3 who could win this is now in the bottom two? Matt should have gone. He's not that great and Lil should be next.

    No, the right decision was not made. Matthew should have been sent home and the save should have been saved for the remaining 6
    What I ask is the right song for Lil? You actually have 3 girls remainig, Adam. Anoop is the best vocalist of all the males. You had real soul vocalists on the stage sent them home. . . oops you really don't want soul.

    I'm glad they saved Matt. He's got real talent, he just needs to continue working to figure out what is best for his voice. He over does things a little bit in some spots of songs but he is a great singer. He may not win (though I hope he does!!!), but he deserves another week or two to continue on his performance journey. No doubt that no matter what happens, he has a good chance at becoming a strong musician in the industry. Go Matt!!!! He's our Kalamazoo guy!!!

    Unbelievable! Matt can't carry a tune in a hand basket, what on earth are the judges thinking? I believe the judges this year are not focused at all. They seem to have other things going on between themselves. Simon is always looking over his right shoulder, at what? Paula is so out of it, even she doesn't understand what she is saying. Cara needs to snap out of her attitude and Randy.....his is just boring. The show is becoming a sitcom not a show with talent.

    Matt and Lil need to see the door home next week, they both are not up to par with the rest. Oh and Miley......she sings through her nose....what is up with that?

    He has no chance to win this competition. This save was a complete waist of save and time. It just means that he'll just have to get booted off next week. It's like hanging a person and half way they stop the hanging, just to hang them again later on in time. So this was useless because he's not good enough. Everybody else there was a lot better. So NO! is my answer. Bye Bye MATT.

    I am glad that Matt was saved. It wasjn't his best performance this week,but he is still very good. Lil should have been out. Plus, once a contestant decides to 'stand up for themselves' against the judges comments whiel being critiqued, I lose all respect for them. Let's face it, Simon is big time producer and knows what's good and what's not. Contestants have to swallow their pride and just take it...good or bad..and then do something with it. Don't smart of on camera for the whole nation to see.

    Yeah for Matt and the others!

    Simon had it right, but was out numbered. Matt is good, but doesn't have a shot at winning and thus the save was pointless.

    I can't help but think that the producers knew the outcome beforehand – the judges little 'huddle' is such a sham.

    Simon says "you have no shot at winning" and then says 'it's good news' and the AI theme music kicks right in.

    Is the 'save' really in the spirit of the show anyway? AI's whole shtick was "America Voted"...it was up to us to decide. The producers have now decided that we're not quite smart enough to get it the way they want it.

    My interest is waning, and if others in my house weren't interested, I would have given up on the show long ago....

    I think it was a smart move. Lil deserved to go home; we hear the same boring performances from her every week, and every week she makes the same empty promise do better next week, her time has passed, she has to go.

    Matt may not have as much of a shot at winning the competition, but he deserves to be there longer to prove that he was a worthy contestant.

    Danny gets on my nerves. He thinks he has this competition in the bag and he honestly doesn't. He has worked the sympathy angle too long and needs a reality check.

    Adam is most likely going to take the AI crown and it will be well deserved. For those that believe the save was wasted for fear that Adam or Allison my have needed it next week, it is highly unlikely that those two will be in jeopardy, they have paved their ways to the final.

    My predictions for the top two: a battle of the sexes, Adam vs. Allison.

    The judges only had this and next week to use the save so it isn't "too early" as some have said. Yes, Matt should have been saved and Lil and Anoop should definitely go next week, but I guess they have a lot of friends dialing in for them. Danny's performance this week should have put him in the bottom three easily (c'mon, Endless Love?) but he has a strong fan base. Sad that talent is secondary on the show. If talent was the primary criteria, Lil and Anoop would have been long gone by now. I'm done with the show.

    The judges just wasted their votes on Matt. His performance on Tuesday and yesterday was horrible, there wasn't anything unique or talented about Matt. It was dreadful to watch him performance another time.

    It doesn't matter I suppose since the show is coming to its end, the judges needed to use their saving vote to keep the show alive.

    Keep in mind that the winner will almost certainly be Adam Lambert.

    The #2 will be Danny, #3 will be Allison. I think this is a shame, because Adam deserves better than the uber-restrictive contract that awaits the winner- absolutely NO creative input is allowed by the winner, and it is a 10-year, multi-release contract. I'd like to see Danny win in light of this, and Adam get #2- remember Chris Daughtry? Who won that year? Wasn't it Taylor Hicks? And what happened when he was made to sing what the staff writers wrote for him? Nothing much- the worst-selling debut album in AI history. Daughtry is free to be himself, while Taylor has to churn out more dreck for the next few years. The only way this will work out well for Adam is if they release creative rights to him. Otherwise, it'll just be more dreck. It would be better for him to get #2, and have full creative rights, as well as a less-restrictive contract, than to be sucked into the AI dungeon. Let that go to "Michael Bolton II", Danny.

    I'm a music producer and I gotta say this guy is really legit.

    he has tons of soul, sounds like a voice on the radio...

    most the singers in the top 7 do not sound commercial.

    i think Danny does somewhat and maybe that kid Kris....Adam has the most range of any idol contestant ever, but he's 100% theater boy!!!!! all that vibrato is not a pop voice, it's broadway.

    anoop should leave along with his middle aged hair cut...Boring....

    lil rounds is terrible and has been since the beginning!

    the little 16 year old girl has tons of potential, but she oversings and her voice actually sounds damaged, way too much vibrato too....sounds like she's 55 and a deep chain smoker.

    they should have kept JAMAR that dude was DOPE!~ and had a real commercial appeal!!!!

    the A.I. Band are session guys from old school records by Whitney Houston and all the 80's and 90's stuff....boring and old sounding!!!

    get the Rockstar band from that show witih INXS and SuperNova, they would be cooler and younger!!!!

    I think that the judges used the save because they know that Adam, Allison, and Danny haven't even been in the bottom 3 at this point. The odds of them getting voted off are virtually non-existent. With only one more week to use the save and Matt's overall talent, I think that the save was appropriate.

    The save only works until the bottom five, so it's almost now or never.

    The save was NOT wasted! Sure, Matt won't be the eventual winner, but neither will Lil or Anoop (or Allison, Danny, or Kris for that matter). Matt at least deserves to be in the top 5!
    C'mon, everyone, we need to vote for Matt over and over and over again next week to keep him in a little longer!

    Yeah Karen! You are totally right. Adam Lambert is amazing and they should have saved the save just in case he has a bad week even though i dont think that will happen. (-;

    America made a mistake and has done so in the past. Lil should've gone. Matt would've been ok and they needed to save the save for Anoop in the future. Matt and Anoop can still sell records. Not so Lil and Kris. I hope they are voted off next week. But since America got it wrong, there was nothing to do but to use the save on Matt .. that is the purpose of the save – to correct something when America gets it wrong.

    Wasted save. It's too early in the competition and Matt was NOT the one that needed to be saved! LIL should have gone home, but if by chance Adam or Allison get's voted off, there is NO save for them and that would just be a HUGE, HUGE mistake!!!!!! What in the bloody hell were they thinking?

    I really love Matt's soulfull sound but I don't think he will win. Since two go home next week, there's a good chance he will be voted off again because most voters have decided on thier favorites and will vote for them whether they have a bad night or not, so it was probably a wasted save. For those who think that Adam is done if he's booted because the save is gone. Don't worry. He's made a name for himself. He will have a career.

    Definitely should have been Lil. She is in a word BORING. There are too many really good ones left in the race to have used the save now. What if Allison or Gokey get voted off next week on DISCO!!!!!!!!!! week. Now they have to let them go to have saved a marginal performer. Stupid move.

    Lambett wont need the save no way he hasn't taken a misstep yet. He is I think untouchable at this point.

    I would have made sure I saved it for Gokey and Allison the only two I think have any chance against Lambert.

    Lil is still in because that lousy group Vote for the Worst is keeping her in. They did it for Megan, and it cost Alexis Grace the chance to go on tour. I wish there was a way Idol could stop those devils!

    Matt and Lil should go home next week, but with Disco, I'm afraid it's going to be Anoop and Lil.

    I really like Anoop. I know he doesn't get a lot of votes and he doesn't have a chance to win, but after coming withing 30K of being kicked off (last week), his performance was definitely not the worst, so I was glad he was sent back to the couch.

    He just doesn't have the fan base and appeal that others have.

    I am so happy that next week is disco week! Adam Lambert will kill. This week is perfect for him. It is his specialty. I can't believe they saved Matt! He is is sweet because he cried but now two people will get voted off next week. Thank goodness Adam Lambert is GOING TO BE SAFE!

    IIRC I think they can only use the save up till the final 5 and in any case Adam doesn't need to be saved, and if he gets voted out.. so what. He's already a star.

    Matt deserves a save.. he's done some really good performances.. last night's not so good, but overall he's done pretty well.

    I think the judges did the right thing in saving Matt tonight. Hopefully he won't be one of the two being sent home next week.

    If Adam gets booted off next week, that would have been one WASTED save....

    I'm so glad the judges used the save on a worthy contestant. They only had (I believe) until next week to use it and I would have hated to see it wasted on someone who didn't deserve it. Go Matt!!!!!

    Matt is a great performer and if judging by consistency, Lil should have been the one to go home. But Simon was right, Matt really doesnt have a chance to win. This year's title has been between Allison, Adam, and Danny for a few weeks now. I wish the judges had saved their save in case one of those three had a bad week.

    I thought Matt was really good until this week....I think he should have been in the bottom 3, but Lil should have went home. Matt has a chance now, to go further. I hope next week, he shows he deserved to be saved!

    Look, I'm a big Matt fan, but that means they wasted the save on the one person who would have really deserved it: Adam. Well, let's hope Lambert makes it to the final two.
