Round of 4:
Gordon: This is Gorodn pepper, and I wanna
Jason: (lights lighter)
Gordon: But the way the show went, I felt like I got (Rick) rolled.
Gordon: Thoughts on the show?
Jason: It was disappointing in a lot of ways. Only one person brought
it enough to make it to the top 3
Don: With Rock being my favourite genre, I felt let down for the most
Grandma Pepper: I didn't like any of them either. I thought this was
the worst program of the series.
Chico: And so it was, as it was foretold in the book of Darnell,
chapter 5, verse 32... Rocker shall rise against rocker, and both
shall be clad in matching leather outfits, hair, and yea, even
makeup...seeing who will out-shout the other. And in the end, a man
from California will show us the way… Can I get an amen on that?
Jason: Nicely done.
Gordon: So with that, we get to...
SAFE, TROUBLE, OUT!
Gordon: Now as what we usually do in the Round of 4, you're going to
assign the singers this week with Whammies. 1 Whammy for safest, and 4
whammies for out.
Jason: Got it.
Adam Lambert - "Whole Lotta Love", "Slow Ride"
Don: Best solo performance by far. 1 Whammy.
Chico: How many times do I have to say this... He's SAFE. 1 Whammy
Jason: Best performance of the show. 1 Whammy.
Grandma Pepper: Yuch. My ears hated that. But I do think he did it
justice. 1 Whammy
Gordon: Only person who deserves to be in the Top 3. 1 Whammy.
Allison Iraheta - "Cry Baby", "Slow Ride"
Jason: Your time is up. 4 Whammys. OUT.
Chico: She's everything that Adam isn't... including talented. OUT. 4
Grandma Pepper: Not her best! 3 WHAMMIES
Don: With all the rocker votes going to Adam, all that needs to be
said to Allison is, "You're out!" 4 Whammies.
Gordon: I see the Whammy Rocker with the guitar getting electrocuted.
Art imitates life. 4 WHAMMIES
Kris Allen - "Come Together", "Renegade"
Grandma Pepper: At this point, he needed a Blockbuster, which that was
not. 4 WHAMMIES = OUT
Jason: I liked this version. 2 whammies.
Chico: Nice little jazzy number... He's SAFE. 2 Whammies
Don: Hmm. I'm going to say 3 Whammies for Kris.
Gordon: I dont think his fan base is as strong as Danny Gokeys. Even
with the Rock Turd Danny pooped up there. 3 WHAMMIES.
Danny Gokey - "Dream On", "Renegade"
Grandma Pepper: Can't give him top marks for that. I think his fans
will rally around him. 2 Whammies
Don: 2 Whammies.
Jason: First time in the bottom 2...what the heck was that? 3
Don: Though I will say that Danny's performance was disappointing.
Chico: He has not been in the bottom two all competition. I think it's
his time. Especially after waking the neighbor's dog. TROUBLE. 3
Gordon: That was a disaster. I think his audience gives him a pass. 2
Whammies. And we're live. Recap time!
Jason: Adam hits it...but Danny blows it
Gordon: 64 million votes. That's a Ton of votes
Jason: Idols are in signs and newspapers. We have the group do a sing
along with Slash. They are flat...in more ways than one.
Gordon: Definitely not Lip Synced. Yuck. Ryan checks to make sure
Slash has eyeballs under the glasses. Slash says that the performances
went great. Slash is apparently getting paid for his appearance.
Jason: You think?
Gordon: We have Daughtry, Paula Abdul, Randy Jackson, and the Top 4
talking. Danny says that it's tiring. Kris says that being in the Top
4 is surreal. Simon tells Kris that he should be in the Top 4 and he
doesn't want humble anymore. heh. Adam liked his outfit.
Jason: Of course he liked his outfit LOL
Gordon: Adam said this was his favorite week. Danny talks about his
last note, which he knows is now the newest and hottest ringtone.
Danny laughed about the note the whole night.
Jason: He knows he blew it.
Gordon: Danny said that people were making ringtones and getting the
scream. It could be his funniest moment on American Idol. He thinks it
will be in movies. And Allison gets bleeped. 'Damn'. Bad word. And
now...it's Paula Abdul time.
Jason: Paula performs now.
Gordon: Paula performs her new song, which sounds like the bubble gum
that;s under your show after stepping on it in a movie theater. Now
someone please explain to me how Paula Abdul fits on Rock Week.
Don: No clue.
Jason: Lip-sync. Has to be.
Gordon: Hey it's a Britney Wanna Be-Song with a Vocoder!
Jason: You know I thought American Idol was about singing...right?
Gordon: You know Jay, I found something worse than Danny Gokey's
Jason: Me too.
Gordon: Don. Toss me the Fear Factor Chuck Bucket please.
Don: *Tosses over the bucket*
Gordon: *Barfs in the bucket*
Jason: I think it can be clubbed up...no?
Gordon: Here Jay. Have a bucket (tosses bucket over)
Jason: It wasn't that bad. I feel fine. I have heard enough vocoder to
know dreck when I see it.
Gordon: Anyone wish to use the Judge's Save on Paula?
Jason: I want the Russian Roulette Lever.
Don: ... What Jason said.
Gordon: Who's up to find out who's in the Bottom 2?
Jason: ME! :)
Gordon: Well TOO BAD! You don't get it yet. Instead, you get a
performance by No Doubt.
Jason: At least she is singing.
Don: Doesn't look like lip-syncing to me. Thank goodness. :-)
Gordon: Gwen says that rock is inspiring. Oh by the way, there's a new
No Doubt Album and tour coming up! Spend money on it!
Jason: I happen to love No Doubt
Gordon: So if you just turned in at 9:30, you missed...absolutely
nothing but a few hideous performances and a decent one by No Doubt.
And...hey! more filler! We get a preview of the Hometown Heroes show.
So here's how this is going to work tonight. We announce one by one
the people who made the Top 3 in RANDOM order. So we won't know who's
really in the Top 2 or bottom 2. First person in....Kris!
Jason: Not a surprise.
Gordon: Nope. Second one is...Who's up for Daughtry?
Jason: I am
Don: I'm expecting this one to be really good.
Gordon: He performs his new song. What do you guys think?
Jason: It was ok
Don: I liked it.
Gordon: And out comes Daughtry's 5 million album sold plaque.
Jason: Business time. 2nd person....
Gordon: ...is Adam.
Don: Of course.
Jason: Final person in the top three....is Danny.
Gordon: That means that Allison is out, as we see her funeral video
and farewell performance. It also means for the first time in Idol
history, we have a final set of 3 males. And here's some standings:
Grandma Pepper: 40
Gordon: Any final thought before next week's show?
Jason: Kris needs to worry. Big time.
Don: After what we heard this week, I really hope the remaining 3 will
step up and do better next week.
Gordon: They can't be worse. So for everyone, this is Gordon Pepper,
