Top 7 Part Two: Not so bad

All in all, disco night didn't suck as much as I envisioned.

Two people sealed their fate tonight and at this point, I have my duo picked out.

Who do you think danced their last dance tonight?

Don't forget to join us Wednesday night for the results show to see who will be heading home.

Top 7 Part Two: Anoop Desai closes it out

I think I've seen that Pepto-Bismol colored sweater Noop Dogg was wearing on someone else this season.

Anoop Desai

Anoop went with Donna Summer's "Dim All The Lights," so I guess he must be shopping in the woman's department, too?

It didn't exactly end the show on a super note, especially not his last one, which was sooooooooo off. He really tried to stay in his lane with the smooth balladeer schtick but I would almost bet money that Noop Dogg will be back in the bottom three - again.

Top 7 Part Two: Matt Giraud tries to stay alive

I was waiting for some Bee Gees.

Matt Giraud

Honestly, can it be disco night without one of their tunes? I'm kind of shocked that Matt went up-tempo with "Staying Alive," but I am not surprised that the JT hat is back.

Matt had some fun and so did I. Was it the earth-shattering performance that made me say, "Wow I am so glad the judges saved him last week?"

Not at all, but it didn't make me think that he should go home any more than Lil should. At least he sang on key.

Top 7 Part Two: Adam Lambert can do no wrong

Adam is back to the "clean-cut sans guyliner" look and I dig it.

Adam Lambert

His version of "If I Can't Have You" was, dare I say it, sweet.

The word "brilliant" is thrown around and for the first time Paula says something that I agree with in that she predicted he will be in the finals.

I am really, really enjoying watching Adam these days. I don't always love what he does to a song but that fact that dude is a star cannot be denied.

Simon gets a "Booooooo" for saying he thought Adam was going to sing Donna Summer. Do not underestimate the Lamb!!!

Top 7 Part Two: Allison Iraheta is 'Hot Stuff'

What is up with baby girl's choice of these overtly sexual songs?

Allison Iraheta

Watching Allison do her thing with Donna Summer's "Hot Stuff" had a bit of the ick factor for me. I do love her voice, but I didn't love this performance.

She's only 16 years old and yet she clearly has the seasoning of an old pro when it comes to singing. Let's just hope the little rocker chick doesn't do that one on the Nickelodeon Awards next year.

Top 7 Part Two: Danny Gokey jams some of the elements

Most singers know that you just so do not mess with an Earth Wind & Fire song.

Danny Gokey

For that reason, I give Danny kudos for attempting "September." He brought some energy and he sang pretty well.

It's getting a little tiring watching the judges always, always giving him props no matter what he does. And Danny better watch out for Paula because I think she was getting her flirt on a little bit with him.

Overall, not a bad performance.
