American Idol: Danny and Kris

All along I've voted for Danny .... and usually Allison or Adam. This time Danny and Kris got my votes. When I was little, I remember watching Sammy Davis Jr. on TV and enjoying his performances, even if some of it was over my head at the time. My mom, being a musician and having some ties to various parts of the industry, living in California during that era, Tuesday's show of American Idol dredged up some memories.
And Jamie Foxx is a great musician so it was neat to see he was a mentor this week. This was probably the first time that I just really really loved hearing Kris sing. He's a cute kid and has great vocals, but I've had a hard time going, hey, what a star ...until Tuesday! I hope that Allison stays in this week, but I bet Matt is on his way out. Allison is a cute kid with a great voice, but I think what is hurting her is she doesn't show off her personality on stage. She's a star and has a long future ahead of her, I bet.
I must say that I would have liked to have heard more upbeat tunes from these five and Danny really added the flavor at the end of his performance. I think he should have gone an octave lower through the entire piece.
Adam is always good and he'll get a deal. Usually I can make up my mind who I'd like to see win this, but I've got so many favorites this year I can't!
