American Idol 2009 Top 4 – The Week Ahead

Last week on American Idol 2009 Matt Giraud finally ran out of second chances and was eliminated while standing next to Adam Lambert in the Top 5’s Bottom Two vote earners. Wow, Lambert was one position away from elimination. Is Adam in trouble now that his elimination buffer was sent home last week or will his fans vote more than ever?

The Idol theme this week is going to be rock songs! This could be awesome because all of the Top 4 singers seem well suited for this theme. After Lambert’s dramatic entrance down the stairs last week I’m wondering if he’ll talk Simon into letting him be lowered from the ceiling on wires! We’ll know Tuesday night when Slash arrives to provide mentorship for the remaining singers.

On Wednesday night’s Idol results show we’ll learn who is eliminated and who remains to make up the season’s Top 3. Former Idol contestant Chris Daughtry will be returning to perform his single “No Surprise,” from his upcoming album. I’m looking forward to hear what his new album will be like. “No Doubt” will share the stage that night as well to perform.

It’s time for more predictions for who is going to have a great week and who will be sent packing. Let’s hear your thoughts and comments now!

  1. I won’t worry about adam…

    i mean.. itz rock after all! it flows in his blood!!

    n i wont worry about allison either coz her voice really suits d genre!! XD

    can’t wait 2 see adam performs!! ^o^
    btw… how many songs are they going to sing? 1 or 2??

  2. ADAM WILL SURELY ROCK THE CONTEST THIS WEEK. HE IS A GREAT PERFORMER…………..

    ADAM IS MY AMERICAN IDO9L!!!!!

  3. adam lambert is the best singer for rock music and i am sure he will excel in his performance.

    adam lambert……….the next american idol!!!!

  4. Hey, adam is my IDOL!!!

    He will be the best performer this week for rock music!!!

    i cant wait to see his performance.

  5. Yeah Adam is cool! But dont forget our girl Allison. Shes a young but sassy rocker and she’ll do a great job!! Go Allison!!

  6. Great, they just put Danny Gokey up on vote for the worst.So now all the danny fans will get some help voting.A lot of people there also said they won’t vote for him.I can only hope they will help him as much as they did Megan,scott,and matt.So far this year they have been a curse for who everthey picked.

  7. Adam was boring this last time and I can see why he ended up on the bottom unless it truly was a ploy. He’s done better. Allison was great. Kris was ok but Danny didn’t deserve to stay. I think Matt did better than he did. I’m routing for Allison and if Adam comes up with something interesting this time perhaps I’ll vote for him.

  8. This giving the vote to the people is ridiculous, as they lose sight of what it’s all about, turning it into nothing more than a personality contest and a farce. How stupid is it to want to sabotage a television show? Again, just one word for all of them ~ stupid.

  9. GO ADAM. I REALLY WANT ADAM TO WIN. HE’S GOT THE STYLE AND PERSONALITY. MAYBE FLASHY SOMETIMES, BUT THAT’S OK. HE’LL TRY TO BE ORIGINAL AND THAT’S GREAT. EVERYONE VOTE FOR ADAM.

  10. hope Allison and Adam in final. love Adam i think he is the perfect factor for an idol. keep going guys and girls, you all sing much better than i do. all the best for theis week. Adam is da best !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. Although I’ve been a HUGE Adam fan, I think Danny Gokey is really hitting his stride right now. Adam will be famous for a while no matter what. He’s got the “it” factor, big time. Allison will surely get the Latino vote–so it should be interesting!!!

  12. I think Allison will go next,she is a great singer but in this day and age you need mass appeal and she does not have that!

  13. Adam is very talented yes- BUT I am sick of them showcasing him as the only contestant! – I also think that the votes really dont count! – If you do research on all of the websites that count the votes u =will notice who had the top to bottom three votes and it was NOT the bottom three that were declared on the show – I think ADam is talented – he is not my choice to win BUT I feel it is rigged for him – !!! I also heard on the radio that he is the only contestant that is allowed to “sneak” out of the house they are all staying in – !

  14. Go Adam Rock everyone’s world this week. I really love your style and your singing. I know you can win. Keep going and show everyone what you have. Best of luck this week, will be watching.

  15. Matt Giraud was MY FAVORITE. I just Loved his smokey voice. I think Chris or Danny should have gone. They are both great guys, but I liked Matt Giraud best.

  16. I think it will be Chris going home this week. They will keep Allison for the spice of things. It will be between Adam and Danny that will win. They are all good artist and have talent. But someone has to go. I’ll miss any of them anyways. May the best man/woman win!!

  17. If America doesnt vote for Adam Lambert it would only mean that American idol is a popularity contest..Lambert is the real thing..

  18. Wow,
    After the shocker last week, although I think it was because Adam is so good we all stopped worrying about voting and almost sealed his fate. He is the most talented of the four.
    Allison and Danny are good, and I believe they will have recording career’s, But Adam will be a star. We do how ever need to vote, and i do mean VOTE VOTE VOTE, until our fingers fall off. WE CANNOT LET ADAM DOWN AGAIN. We need to unite and make this the biggest landside in Idol history. Is Adam Gay? I DON”T CARE….. HE IsTHE BEST PERFORMER. I hear stupid things, like he’ll be the first gay idol, I don’t think so, how about Clay Aiken? Also one of the best performers I ever saw was LIberace, and he was flamboyant. Again VOTE

  19. dont worry who is gay and who isn’t surely the voice is the thing that counts. i loved Matt, but Adam is my choice with Allison second. keep voting.for the right person.

  20. They are all talented but only stands out, ADAM LAMBERT, I cannot wait to see what he is going to do this week, he will ‘Rock’. VOTE, VOTE, VOTE FOR ADAM, DON’T LET HIM DOWN AGAIN, HE IS THE AMERICAN IDOL.

  21. Adam is the best singer and performer this year. Alison is next. I am following AI from asia and i cannot vote. Adam has fans all over the world already. I do agree, Adam is a star.

  22. I think the expectations for Adam and Allison are very high for this week, because they should be great in this genre. If they don’t perform to expectations though, it could be very bad for them. Danny and Kris are the ones that deserve to be in the finale and I still think that’s how it will end up.

  23. Rock is definitely not Danny’s strength but, being the best singer of the bunch, I am sure he’ll do great this week. It is certainly Adam and Allison’s genre and they should take the spotlight this week. Bye bye Kris. You are good and boy are you a cutie.
    GO DANNY GO!

  24. I am anxious to see if Adam is less therictal, I know Adam can sing. Allsion will do well with Rock week. I not so sure about Kris and Danny. All the idols are very good singers,however I think Adam will win if he is true to himself.

  25. You people vote for ADAM?? 😮 First of all, his voice squeaks when he sings. Second, he’s so dramatic. Third, you have to listen to him sing! It’s just…mediocre as Simon says. Danny and Alison are my top votes this week and Kris will be eliminated this Wednesday! Watch out Kris, you’re going home next week!

  26. Kaitlyn: yes, we are voting for adam lambert cuz he is the best guy to win as american idol.

    with regards to danny gokey, sorry he cant be an idol cuz he is so boring entertainer and he acts arrogantly sometimes.

    i dont vote for anyone else except adam lambert……….he is the great guy as american idol winner for season 8.

    God bless you Adam Lambert…………..

  27. Adam Lambert is the kind of guy who is fitted to the role as american idol.

    he continue to mesmerize people of his talentas a singer and my god, those eyes, they are so damn cute, melt me to the bones ……….

    you are my IDOL, adam lambert, gorgeous hunk and so handsome!!!!!!!!!

  28. Adam mediocre? Something wrong with your hearing Kaitlyn, he is GREAT, I think after last week he will make sure he chooses the right song, he will be exceptional. The two that will do well with rock songs are Adam and Alison, but no one can be as good as Adam with Rock. ADAM I CANNOT WAIT FOR TUESDAY.

  29. GOOD MORNING!!GOOD EVENING!!GOOD DAY!!!WHATEVER!!!EVRYONE!!..I’M NOW RECOVERING FROM MY GREAT DELLIMA YESTERDAY BECAUSE OF MY FALLEN TEAM ‘SPURS’.WELL’ I STILL BELIEVE IN DANNY’S CAPABILITY AND ABILITY DOING ROCK TOMORROW’TUES’.LET’S JUST SEE!! HAVE FUN WATCHING GUYS!!

  30. I’m sure they will all do great! For me though, Adam is way too theatrical. Border line drama queen.

  31. If America is looking for an American Idol, then Adam is your guy – the only guy. I’ve never seen a person with so many different styles and sides to him. He can sing anything. Don’t let him down – vote vote vote!

  32. Adam all the way..The other 3 are so predictable, you know about what they are going to do..Adam is the only true showman in the group…Kris sounds exactly the same every week…Danny too, but he will still get the sympathy vote..Allison is good for her age but not AI material..So ADAM, head and shoulders above all others from the beginning…VOTE ADAM!!

  33. Adam better not go home or I will not care who else is in the competition. In judging I ask myself would I buy a record from this contestant and Adam is the only one that I would actually follow his career and buy his music.

  34. I’M STILL SO PROUD BEING A FILIPINO..YOU SEE?EVEN HERE ABROAD FILIPINOS STILL THE BEST!!I THINK MAJORITY OF US ‘FIL’ SUBSCRIBING THIS PAGE.FILIPINOS WERE SONG LOVERS OF COURSE.MABUHAY TAYONG MGA PINOY.EVEN IF WE DENOUNCE OUR CITIZENSHIP,WE CAN’T DENY THAT WERE STILL FILIPINO.SA DUGO,KULAY,UGALI,KALOKOHAN,KAWALANGHIYAAN ETC HEHEHE!!PINOY PA RIN TAYO..DANNY FOR MEEEE!!!

  35. I think Adam’s disadvantage is that people are expecting so much from him, if he performs well it might not meet the high expectations put upon him, he has to perform GREAT, unfortunately. All the others have to do is perform well…ie: Danny be a little more theatrical.
    Adam has been the front runner for so long many might be looking for a reason not to vote for him.
    Stay Faithful!

  36. Unfortunately, there are many people in America who don’t have an ear for music!!! And they vote….. ADAM is fantastic, it makes me shudder when I hear comments that he can’t sing, or he “squeaks”… I am not a young teen in love with his looks, I am 57 and in love with his voice. He is clearly a million miles from the rest in terms of talent. Dramatic- YES!!! and that is entertainment, and he seems so genuine and sweet. Anyone who thinks Matt G can sing well needs to take a music appreciation class where they learn about staying in key and hitting the right notes. Danny hits the notes, but OH he does not have a great voice, and he is not a performer, no star quality. I see Allison getting a rock thing going – she has that Janis Joplin kind of vibe, but she has too much raspiness to her voice to win AI, but she has talent. Kris is OK, just no star quality also…. By the way, Simon never said Adam was mediocre – I don’t know where that comment came from..

    The judges, the coaches, the musicians all love Adam, so do I and my musician family. Adam is the only contestant who has praise for the band, and the people who help him with his arrangements- he is a true professional – giving credit to others. ADAM SHOULD AND WILL WIN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!VOTE VOTE VOTE for ADAM

  37. I was glad to see Adam in the bottom two. Although he has a very powerful voice, I can’t stand listening and watching him. I could not imagine going to sit in a concert listening to him for hours…

  38. I think they are all going to do well. But Kris will be the one going this week. Kris does not seem the rocker type. I sure hope Adam doesn’t scream this week. Even though he screams he is a superb entertainer but its not what I want to hear. That is why I vote for Danny.

  39. Kathleen F YOU ARE SO RIGHT, Adam is the only one that something different every week, he never fails to deliver, his vocals, performance, entertainment value, he gets full marks, no matter what he will have a great career ahead of him. This is fo all his supporters VOTE, VOTE, VOTE, HE IS THE AMERICAN IDOL.

  40. ADAM TO WIN. from the offset he has been the one who wholly encompasses all an AI should be. I dont feel he has ever had an off week or one where he did not out-perform everyone else. matt giraud compared to adam lambert is no contest at all. im surprised matt even lasted that long. by some freak of nature adam was in the bottom 2 but NEVER again. the next two he’s gonna be in is the FINAL 2. LAMBERT TO WINN x x

  41. Allison should blow it out of the park on Rock week. Hopefully, she is smart enought to give Simon a piece of her mind and let him know she is in it to win! She needs to be in the finale. I totally disagree with Simon’s interiew in TV Guide magazine that it should be a Danny and Adam Finale. Definitely an Adam and Allison finale!!!! Go Allison!!!

  42. It’s Adam all the way. I’m only going to vote for him as many times as I can. He deserves to be this years AI.

  43. Adam is really good…but I think Alison should go !! Its anybodys guess who will be eliminated next..after the shock of Adam in the bottom…. I think Danny Gokey has the biggest HEART ever!! & fffor a real good reason!! Kris…I Like him too but…. I def feel Allison should be the one to go @ this stgae of the competition!!

  44. Come on Adam fans….we need to vote vote vote for Adam this week. What happened last week? I thought it was one of his better performances and certainly not the worst. Did people vote for someone else thinking Adam was safe with the other votes? Let’s show everyone that we know that Adam is the only choice for winner in this competition. Let’s face it….he’s mega talented and deserves to win!!!

  45. I LOVE CLASSIC ROCK,HARD ROCK AND ALLTERNATIVE ROCK. This week Adam and Allison should take the lead. yo know if Adam ever did an old Journey song in Steve Perry’s range and took it a cut above, I suhdder to think how amazing he would be. Or a Freddy Murcury (Queen) song. With his range WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  46. REMEMBER VOTING IS IMPORTANT FOR THE CONTESTANT YOU WANT TO WIN!!!

    DANNY IS THE NEXT AMERICAN IDLE HE IS WHOLESOME AN AMERICAN BOY SOMEONE TO LOOK UP TO

  47. REMEMBER VOTING IS IMPORTANT FOR THE CONTESTANT YOU WANT TO WIN!!!

    ADAM LAMBERT!!!

  48. DANNY YOU’RE GREAT AND FANTASTIC..GOD GIVE YOU THAT WONDERFUL VOICE,SO IT MEANS HE HAS A LOT OF PLANS FOR YOU.YOU HAVE TO EXPLORE IT FOR GOOD..WE’RE BACKING YOU WITH PRAYERS.

  49. I think Adam should do really well this week this song selection is right up his alley!!
    GO ADAM!!!

  50. Kris, he’s a winner…no matter where he ends up………allison, nooooo adam maybeee and danny, would be okay too….

  51. Message for Adam, we are looking forward to your performance tomorrow, we know that you will be great, YOU ARE THE AMERICAN IDOL.

  52. Come on America, vote,vote,vote for Adam Lambert. I don’t know what happen last week for him to end up in the bottom 2. I was totally shocked! He is difinately the next AI.

    Message to Adam: Go Adam I will be routing for you, you can do it.

    I think Danny should go home this week if not; then Chris. I’m not sure how he has made it this far. The three of them or NO match for Adam.

  53. A lot of people are saying that Adam does not need to win because he will be a star anyway. I am sure that is true, but he wants to win ! And, when he does it will prove that the people of America will vote for the best SINGER , the BEST VOICE not any other bonehead reason. You must VOTE for Adam.!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  54. Just thinking, with the majority so clearly in favor of ADAM FOR AMERICAN IDOL, and the majority of them have stated they will no longer watch American Idol if Adam does go home, I think they will keep him until the last night, even if they give it to someone else, because most of the people tuning in are only doing so to see Adam..They put him in the bottom 3 just for some excitement…with him gone, it would be all boring…Gokey and Kris are about like Matt, thousands just like them all over…So bet it will be Adam and Gokey up until the finals..If not, no one will be watching!!

  55. Adam is a stage performer and just an average singer. Danny is a great and valued singer. I choose Danny or Kris over Adam as I am more of a listener than a viewer. A listener will not get tire of listening but a viewer will soon get tire of viewing the same old thing.

  56. Rock songs! This could be awesome because all of the Top 4 singers seem well suited for this theme….. it’s tough!! I think Adam and Danny will deliver solid performances……..If Allison choose the right song, that actually suits her voice…. then who knows? Chris could surprise everybody …….. Anyone could go!

  57. first, to stanley the listener up there, if u don’t like watching adam try listening to some of those studio downloads. guessing that down the staircase thing last week didn’t work for u (not to mention none of these were likely our favorite songs!) — but when i just LISTENED to him sing it i was blown away.i think his talent as a singer and entertainer is unsurpassed on AI — and i hope he does a great classic, throws caution to the wind, and just rocks out for all his fans.

  58. Meredith NYC – That is your opinion BUT U cant’t force it on others. I respect your opinion BUT you need to learnt to respect other opinions. It is unnecessary to comment on the views expressed by others in this forum. Just keep it to your thought on the AI.

  59. Never Ending debates about Idol. DANNY GOKEY, period. I don’t like MADAM LAMBERTA!!! disgrace to the society.

  60. I will come back to you folks after tonights
    performance. Danny will out sung them all.

  61. Adam will rock! I don’t want to witness another TAYLOR HICKS in the person of DANNY GOKEY and JUSTIN GUARINI for KRIS ALLEN. We want the true IDOL. ADAM has it!!!!

    Please, for those voting for Danny or Kris, make sure you support them till the end. All ADAM fans will make sure that his albums will attain MULTI-PLATINUM STATUS. I myself will buy 10 copies of his first album!!!

  62. danny gokey is the best it is just like that adam sucks and is so boring and yaah i thing danny will win

  63. I often wonder how many people would be voting for Danny had American Idol not given his backstory. I’m sorry, but just to listen to him he sounds like Taylor Hicks part 2. No thanks. Adam, all the way!

  64. I just hope Adam doesn’t get pushed out of this competition by those short-sided folks who saw some of the blogs and pictures surfacing last week and passed judgment. Adam is who he is and EXTREMELY talented. No one can deny that. With or without the show, he’ll do fine as a musician but he deserves to be the next American Idol. I

  65. Danny is the one – I am really sick and tired of all the shinanagins the others are putting on.

  66. Is all that I can say is WOW!!!!!!! Adam & Allison ROCK!!!!!!!! I hope that American pushed the redial button for these 2. I guess we will find out when we watch the results tonight. I can’t wait!

  67. Kaitlyn, what planet did you come from? Adam mediocre? Simon said that? You might want to get your hearing checked. I don’t think that Simon said one negative thing about Adam.
    I say that Adam should win especially after yesterdays performance. He Rocked on! My man can belt out some great tunes. We need him to win, because one: I know that he wants to win. and two: America has not seen a great rock icon since the 70’s/80’s with the exception of Creed. Number 46 hit it right on the nail with her statement. After yesterdays show, I am hoping to see 1)Adam, 2)Allison, as my girl can rock on too. 3)Danny. And abracadabra to Kris – poof he’s gone!

  68. hi adam fans,how do you feel that kris was at the top tonite,you guys should stop boasting about adam because next week he is going out of AI,sorry but he will break your hearts no douth about that

  69. Are you the only RETARD voting for Kris, or are there more retards besides yourself! Scary though, eh…

  70. I think that should only be one vote per phone number as the whole thing has turned into a popularity contest rather than a find the most talented singer contest.

  71. Yes Anne, I agree with you about the voting system. AI is going to loose viewers if they don’t change it. I’ll tell you after this weeks elimination, I am finding that the show (AI) is too nauseating to watch anymore.

  72. Sorry! Go back and watch all of the last 4 singers on your computer! Where you can actually see them and hear them clearly! As Simon says ” Have you watched your self?” GET REAL The GREATEST performance was ADAM, ADAM, ADAM, ADAM, ADAM, ADAM,ADAM ADAM.The rest of them were just mediocre! I have been to many, many rock concerts! And when Adam sang whole Lotta Love, It was like being at a real rock concert. Would I pay money for this boys CD? Absolutely! Would I pay to see him in concert? Absolutely! The only difference between Adam and Elvis is the Southern sexy sound in Elvis voice. Adam is a later version of Elvis. A current version of ELVIS. Same good looks. Same sneer on face! AND I AM A HUGE ELVIS FAN!! This boy is almost like a current reincarnation of Elvis!! AND TO THE HOMOPHOBIC, I STILL SAY GET OVER IT! WHO CARES?

  73. Kris Allen is truly the most gifted and talented of all the contestants on American Idol. America voted for Kris Allen to win, with the knowledge that they had chosen an individual with remarkable musical abilities, as well as, ground moral values.
