ETA: OK, I’m hearing that these are probably correct…
Isn’t dress rehearsal until about 5 pm PST?
I just got this in an email from somebody I don’t know. But Carie (who didn’t get in to dress rehearsal today) said it was possible the rehearsal could have been earlier.
Keeping in mind that folks LOVE to punk, I’m not going to stand behind this list 100%
If these turn out to be false, I’ll edit in the real ones later…
In the mean time–have fun!
Megan didn’t perform and we never saw her – she had a “wardrobe malfunction.”
Matt Giraud – So Small (played piano)
Scott MacIntyre – I recognized his song, but for the life of me I can’t
remember the name of it. (played piano)
Michael Sarver – Ain’t Goin’ Down Till the Sun Comes Up
Allison Iraheta – Blame It on Your Heart
Kris Allen – To Make You Feel My Love (sat on a stool)
Adam Lambert – Ring of Fire (very sexy Eastern-influenced version that pretty much made every woman over the age of 20 in the audience ready to jump him)
Lil Rounds – Independence Day
Danny Gokey – Jesus, Take the Wheel (partial standing O)
Alexis Grace – Jolene
Anoop – You Were Always on My Mind
Not sure if the performance order is correct since I didn’t take notes. The first four are definitely correct, although again we don’t know where Megan is in the lineup since she didn’t perform. It definitely seemed to me like theywere saving the “fan favorites” for the second half. Adam and Danny by far gotthe biggest audience reaction, both before, during, and after their performances. Right now it seems like they are the clear front-runners. Everyone else was good, but they both had that extra something.
ETA: More from my source:
Another reason that the dress rehearsal seemed to end early, in addition to the start time and lack of Megan, was that Ryan was not there. One of the producers read all his stuff before the contestants sang instead. Lil also sang again at the end because they messed up something during her run-through. But in general, without any video packages or banter with Ryan (not to mention lack of commercial breaks), the performances just zipped by. I noticed in the comments that Carie B is questioning my ability to remember songs. Most of the songs were not announced by name, and there was no display on a monitor of what they were. Scott’s song is very much in the same vein musically as the type of song he did last week.
