Top 4: 'Dream On' Danny Gokey

I just knew we couldn't escape rock night without an Aerosmith song, or a power ballad for that matter.

Danny Gokey

Danny performs Aerosmith's "Dream On," and in rehearsal with Slash, that scream that tore from Danny made me throw up  in my mouth a little bit.

I get what he was going for since the song is a little bluesy; however, his performance was a whole lotta crazy!!

Even some of his family and friends seemed to be trying to figure it out when the camera went to them. That final "note" (making the quote fingers here) he sang/screamed was beyond horrendous.

Danny appeared to be sipping some Lambert juice with this one, and not necessarily in a good way. Ryan reminds us that Danny's never been in the bottom three, but I don't think that's going to hold up this week.

And is it just me, or do the judges seem like they are determined to say something positive about him regardless?

    Danny was horrible!!
    I can sing much better than him singing dream on.
    I don't like this man at all.
    He has no sense.

    I think Adam will probably win, but I'm hoping it will be Danny.
    I think Danny is all around better for an idol title.

    I think it was okay. It only displays that what Adam does, can also be done by the other idols. To think that Danny has a low voice.. i was surprised when he hit that note! ...

    I think someone told Danny that he had to be "more like Adam"... much to his detriment this week. And I'm really kinda tired of the Adam Lambert "March to the winner's circle" that seems to be happening. What Simon hated about him in the beginning (too theatrical) he now appears to love... WHY? It was a bad song choice for Danny... he should have tried harder to put his own stamp on the song if he had to do it, but ... In hope this mistake doesn't kill his chances.

    Adam's Country Night was just unusual not a flop. Danny should have tried something a little different to get the "you made it your own!" a loungy "Highway to Heaven" perhaps?

    Comment to Nic about AI using the scream for Danny's end of show clip...

    Idol creates those clips from the dress rehearsals – not the live performances. They didn't do a dress rehearsal last night because of the problems with the set – however before the live show started they had each person come out and do 20-30 second snippet of their song. Gokey sang the bridge between the first verse and the chorus and also attempted (and failed) the big note twice. However in the live show, Gokey added a "doo doo doo" run during the bridge and AI had no choice but to use the pre-taped scream (which trust me was not as bad as the live performance) only for his clip package.

    IMO Danny has had just one better than average performance during the season (Rat Pack week) – the rest have been fair to middling. Even if Gokey survives elimination this week, his version of Dream On will go down in Idol history as one of the worst performances ever – mark my words. The audacity of Gokey to think he had the chops to pull it off.

    Tom – Thank You! Thank You! Thank You! That was exactly what I was thinking. If you base it off one single performance, Adam would have and should have been sent home Country week. I am a Danny fan, but admit Adam is pretty darn talented, they BOTH did REALLY BAD during the weeks that they had to perform to a genre that obviously doesn't suit them.

    I can't believe Danny still has fans after that horrid performance. It's the worst Idol performance I've seen in all seasons (in my opinion). I have never liked him from the start and I never will. I also dislike his attitude so much. He tried his best to outsing/out scream Kris and blatantly wanted to copy Adam's singing style but failed. At least Adam hits the notes right. Ring of Fire was way better than Danny's trainwreck. This performance just emphasized how his departure is long overdue. It made him look like a fool.

    @ Barbara: What's wrong with wearing eyeliner?
    Wow at all the Danny fans here. Not generalizing, but some here seem to be from a very conservative background.
    @ Bob, judging by the whole season, Danny's performances in general just reeked of mediocrity, but some people think like he's the second coming of Christ. I also hate that Danny claps after his own performances. Says a lot about himself really.
    @ megan: Whatever floats your boat. Didn't you think Dream On was painful? Oh, it sure sounded like angels were singing from the heavens.

    Megan, with all of Adam's near-perfect performances I have to tell ya, Ring of Fire is still my all-time favorite! I can watch his live performance over and over and not get tired of it. That was hands down the sexiest and riskiest performance ever on Idol, and I love him for it! His eyes, his legs, his Robert Plant-like wail, OMG, I'm not the only 40-something woman who feels this way! Some of us just like things that are more exotic, less white bread.

    I love the studio version too, but that live version is phenomenal. To each her own, I guess!

    Danny has sung great all year long. Last night's peroformance was an abberation for him. He's not a hard rock singer. Probably should have picked another song. I think he should be judged by his total season, not by one night's performance. If that were the case, Adam woudl have been long gone during country week after his Ring of Fire murder.

    Danny is the man. Yes it was NOT his best performance, but look at others that have not performed well and still are in. Look at the weeks that he has sang and has been on the money!! Adam with his tongue hanging out while he screams is pretty horrifying. Danny would do well singing a Rod Stewart song. I 'd buy his CD in a heart beat. He also has a great personaily along with his singing.

    Danny was horrible. Kara is a ridiculous joke, in fact all the judges are, but she is the worst. To suggest that Gokey sing an 'earier' Aerosmith song than Dream On, something like 'Crazy' ..simply shows that she is clueless. Dream On is from their FIRST album, released in 1973. Crazy is from their Get a Grip album – released 20 years later in 1993! However, that album was infiltrated by the kind of people that destroy good bands – song doctors – like her. Don't forget, Kara is a 'talent' who doctors songs for such super fabulous 'artists' like Jessica Simpson, Britney Spears, Pussycat Dolls and Kelly Osbourne. "Nuff said..

    Ok, so what Danny is not a rock singer, although I think he would have sounded a lot better if he would have covered a Creed , Stone Temple Pilots, or Sound Garden song. Something of the type! last night was pretty tough but it wasn't so bad that he should be kicked off. I just think a lot of you Adam fans are hoping that Danny goes home because you know that he is the guy that could put a damper on your parade. Also it is sickening to watch the judges marvel over adam. What he did last night was nohting special. We all know that he sounds like a broke Axel Rose. But Adam's Take on Led Zep was not original at all. Keep it going Danny!!!

    Someone said it right, Danny should be singing Rock of Ages, not trying to sing rock. His screech was off pitch and made me shudder. Slash suggested that Adam stay away from the falsetto and he took his advice. I can't see that Danny took any advice. He has disregarded the mentor's on previous occasions which to me indicates arrogance. Hopefully, this will be his last tour and he'll find his way into the bottom. Go sing for the Christian Broadcasting network.

    I sing Dream On better when I'm driving in my car–and I'm virtually tone deaf. Although not so much so that I can't realize how horrible this was. He WAS NOT on pitch at all, regardless of what anyone says. I don't think he hit any notes. Instead of sounding sexy, the raspiness sounded like he had no voice and had SCREAMED it out this week. I much prefered Michael Johns' Dream On last year, and it was not perfect in any way.

    Adam is a little off, but the kid has a voice. Danny should not try to be Adam or Steven Tyler or anyone else but himself. That was just awful. And whoever it was who said Adam has the attitude??? Why??? He actually seems embarrassed by what people say-sort of like David Cook was last year.

    All said, still love Allison's voice.

    It's been touched on before by a few people, but I have to bring it up again ...

    I seriously don't understand the obsession with the judges and Danny. He was really, REALLY bad last night, but they praised him for "effort" and "trying." If that were any other contestant bringing that garbage, they would have said something to the effect of "at this stage in the competition, you have to nail it, and that didn't do it for me." Kris was just ho-hum (not sure if it was in their song selection, but I feel like Nirvana's "About a Girl" or their version of David Bowie's "The Man Who Sold the World" both would have been better choices). Still, he was LIGHT YEARS ahead of Danny, yet they lambasted Kris with criticism.

    One more bone to pick with the judges (Kara, I'm looking at you): If you're going to give someone advice, PLEASE make sure it's correct. You asked Danny why he didn't go with older Aerosmith like "Cryin'"? Um, last time I checked, "Cryin'" is definitely NEWER Aerosmith. What he sang (Dream On) is REALLY old Aerosmith ... if she wanted him to sing something ELSE from their older records, she should have suggested "Sweet Emotion," "Mama Kin" or "Last Child." Hell, "Rag Doll" would have been MUCH better, and that's STILL older than "Cryin'". Get your facts straight, oh mighty record executive that you are!

    On a final note, Adam and Allison were terrific (this was their complete comfort zone, so they should have been). Adam absolutely killed Zeppelin, and Allison stayed safe, but it all worked for them.

    I'm a huge Gokey fan–but that was a horrid note. I think he could have handled the song fine, just do a different version and don't try to sound like Steven Tyler. I disagree with the "mentoring" Slash gave him in that regards. As to all the people saying there should be no more comments about Adam's screaming...sorry.....Danny made a huge mistake trying to hit a note that he couldn't and it was horrid. However Adam looks for ways to fit his high pitched scream into everything he does. Granted it's a controlled scream- it's still a scream and I'm still over it. I think Danny has the best voice, I too wish he would sometimes change the song up a little more, but it's not as if they can walk out there and do original material. What he does do to make songs his– phrasing–notes, etc, just aren't as noticable as what Adam & Kris do. Completely agree that last night his performance was the worst- but don't think he should go home b/c of it based on previous performances– however it could be advantageous for him to go on an exit and get his album out sooner–w/o Simon! I disagree that he's getting votes because of sympathy! And for all you conspiracy theorists claiming it's rigged to be a Danny-Adam showdown– check out the clip AI chose to show of Danny's performance for it's wrap-up........the scream.

    i think the most significant thing that can be said of danny's performance tonight is that once and for all (hopefully) he has demonstrated for the AI audience what constitutes a screech ( i.e., his last few bars/ rendition of "singing")! when people say that adam screeches –is this really the same thing your ears r hearing?? of course not! it may not be your style, but adam has been pitch perfect every time - even when he plays around up in that impossible range. i do give danny credit for trying, unlike chris who just did what he always does. but please, no more mention of adam and screeching in the same breath.

    Something I would like to point out about Kara, she told Danny that he needed to do "early" Aerosmith such as Crazy or Cryin. I would just like to point out that these songs were released in 1993, more than twney years after the formation of Aerosmith. I normally enjoy AI and I have really enjoyed this year, with the exception of the supposedly talented Kara who makes these kinds of mistakes all the time and brings down the credibility of the show.
    I loves seeing Slash this week and I am hoping for an Adam/Danny show down in the final, but for next year, get rid of Kara or educate her on the history of music.....its embarrassing for her and for the show

    I am really surprised to hear someone say Adam has an "attitude"? One of the things I love about Adam is how he seems so humble. He listens to the criticism and always smiles after words. It's very sweet. Danny on the other hand tonight was basically like 'yeah I know it was good. maybe I have to listen back to it because I know it was good.' it was very off putting.
    I really like Danny. He has a unique, good voice. However, that song was just awful. While Kris was spot on. I really enjoyed his performance and will probably download it. I really hope that the massive amount of Gokey fans don't overload him with votes anyway. Kris really deserves to stay, in my opinion. Though it is apparent Adam is more than likely going to win with probably Allison in second.

    TERRIBLE performance for Gokey..

    But what was MORE TERRIBLE was the fact that PIMPING HAS COME FROM BAD TO WORST! How come he still get some brownie points for that in contrast with Kris Allen? We know that both Danny and Kris are not of the rock genre? If they did say Kris was bad that night, EVENTHOUGH HE SANG BETTER THAN DANNY TONIGHT, the JUDGES should have given some props on how Kris did his song or if not, don't pimp Danny blatantly to our face, just say he was terrible tonight just as Kris!

    WOW, I just cant believe how UNPROFESSIONAL and BIASED the JUDGES has become! If Adam had an off night, it's ok to remind us that he is good and we have to save him but man, the only good performance Danny had was last week but the pimping was almost every week for him even for every mediocre performance he had!

    I thought that this song was to high for Danny but I do not think it was awful. Granted a few of his notes were not in pitch - the last note - but it was not that bad. He has a lot of courage to go out there and sing a song by Steven Tyler. He desserves to go on to the next round just because he is a great singer and he did not pick an easy song. His duet with Chris was amazing btw. Chris is going home this week. Then it will be close with Danny and the girl. But in the end, Adam is going to win hands down.

Let's face it, we all knew that this would be a tough week for Danny....a rocker he is not. BUT, a talented, humble, down to earth and fabulous human being his IS. He deserves to move on and I predict he will. He has been consistant and strong each and every week so one "off" performance should NOT send him packing!! I think that Kris will be leaving tomorrow night....Danny will be in the finale. Go get em Danny!!! You will come back stronger than ever next week!!!

    Oh. My. Lord. Danny Danny Danny ... don't do the song if you can't slay it at the end. Adam could have sang that song in his sleep, but it is not a Gokey song. Why on earth choose it? Free Bird ... that was the song choice for you; it would have worked. But that ending note was the scariest, most awful thing I've heard on Idol in years. Oh Danny Boy ... you may regret that song choice forever.

    I think Danny had a vocally experienced and trained person would sing a note if they know they can't hit it, let alone SCREAM it! What was he thinking??? Furthermore, his response to the judges...he was visibly agitated...which was not very typical of him.

    I think he won't be going home...the fact that he was never in a the bottom 3 shows that his fans are very consistent and after tonight, they will be even more fired up to vote for him.

    Although I'm not a fan but in all fairness, he is so not karaoke Gokey.

    Kris (and/or Allison) could come out and blow the place up, walk on water, make angels cry and they would not be a break from the judges because they want a Adam/Danny final because they know it’s a slam dunk win for Adam. Nobody is going to beat Adam, but Kris and/or Allison in the final against Adam scares the bejezus out of Idol. Danny could come out, whizz in Simon’s vodka cup, crap in Paula’s lap make out with Randy and it’s going to be the greatest thing in the world.

But this is a singing competition...and he has been great at times. But what a mistake tonight...the odds of hitting the closing notes of that song under pressure is almost impossible. The only one I think could have possibly done it is Adam. I see the results coming in this way tomorrow night: Adam, Allison, Chris, and Danny. My favorite is Allison...go girl!!! That said I think Adam will win it all.

    The whole performance was embarrassingly painful to watch let alone listen to..... and that last note was hideous!! They have been toooo nice to him all season. Yes he has a sad story but seriously – that performance tonight was not honoring his wife's memory. It's time for Gokey to GO!

    It was so horrible. I seriously wanted to change the channel when the high note was coming up.

    Ya, it's pretty obvious the judges are manipulating the votes. That performance was painful.

    Ha ha...Gokey was not pleased to be in a duet with Chris. His face showed he was very very very ANNOYED with the idea and then he sings that godawful solo rock song screeching his heart out expressing his anger.
    This guy has to go this time.

    What can I say. I just don't love Danny Gokey. OK song – but I would never download it.

    Yeah, I love that song for lots of reasons and I wanted it to be OK, but it wasn't.

    OMG! Danny made me want to scream and run away from my TV. Uggghhhh!!! Terrible, but then again, I never was a Danny fan.

    Yes, to the judge thing. Danny did well enough, but I kept waiting for the high notes during dream on.....

    It was okay. But I think he's in trouble this week. JMO.

    I was a Gokey fan for a long time but have been really finding myself agreeing that he does a karaoke version of all the songs, but with a great voice. But tonight I just wanted it to end from the very first note and could not wait til it was done. I don't know that there was any note that was in tune, the screaming sounded like a young toddler at the market checkout and it was just dreadful.
    Unless VFTW saves him, I think this was his coup de grâce.
