Just a few weeks before the big finale, American Idol goes Rock! And just as I thought Adam Lambert did very well this week.

Here are the top 4’s song choices:
adam lambert
Adam Lambert sang Whole lotta love by Led Zeppelin. All I can say about his performance is that he’s in the zone! Way to go Adam!

allison iraheta
Allison Iraheta sang Cry Baby by Janis Joplin. I couldn’t say much but it was okay.

kris allen
Kris Allen sang Come Together. Kinda reminds me of Carly’s version which way better than Kris.

danny gokey
Danny Gokey sang Dream On by Aerosmith and it was well..makes me want to compare with Michael Johns version which was better, eventhough he got eliminated after that performance. Uh oh!

They also did duets and here’s what they performed:
Kris & Danny sang Renegade by Styx. Their vocals were like jumping up and down and they failed to harmonize. (harmonize?! hehehe)

Adam & Allison performed Slow Ride. And just like what Kara said they are the Rock God and Rock Goddess. Very very well performed.

Oh I almost forgot, Danny screamed at the end of his song. And it was…well just like what Simon said “like a Friday the 13th scream”.
To hear it for yourselves, visit Rickey’s site and well listen to it.

Ok, so out of the 8 teams the games committee came up with five groups that would play in the Amazing Race at the 8waves prior to the game day.

In the race, there were five pitstops. In each pitstop, 3 players from each team would have to finish a task. After they have successfully completed the given task they would look for the assigned marshall per pitstop to claim the next clue and the puzzle piece.
