The last night of Hollywood Week on “American Idol”

SHARE The last night of Hollywood Week on “American Idol”

If “American Idol” is a singing competition, why has there been so little singing in favor of manufactured drama?

The remaining 72 contestants performed with a band, back-up singers and, if they wanted to, their own instruments.

“Wicked” Los Angeles cast member Adam Lambert is first with a Cher’s “Do You Believe in Love” as a ballad. It’s weird.

Matt Giraud is next up with “Georgia.” He accompanies himself on the piano. Too many vocal riffs. Three judges give a standing ovation. So much for judges not making any comments.

Friends Jamar Rogers and Danny Gokey are given more screen time. Who wants to bet only one of them makes it through?
