Kris Allen of 'American Idol'
Singer: KRIS ALLEN
Song: "Remember the Time"
Monkeys As Critics' Take: Kris already did a boring Michael Jackson cover and it somehow got him into the Top 13. I'm not sure that musically the guitar is adding anything to Kris' performance, but he looks a bit more confident. Once again, Kris is denying us the allegedly remarkable voice the judges keep going on about. This is mid-tempo, so I can't criticize him too heavily for song choice. He's made the song is own and, in the process, he hits a couple rough parts, more and more as he goes along, but it's certainly a more memorable performance than his first.
Bob & Carol & Ted & Simon Say: Kara thinks the girls love Kris. She's happy to see him with his guitar and, for that, she's willing to forgive the few notes that were off. Kara also tells us that Kris spent the week helping the other contestants. Paula calls Kris "adorable-sexy." I guess it's been long enough since Corey Clark that this is now acceptable? She doesn't mention his performance or voice. Simon didn't understand what the guitar had to do anything. Randy compares Kris to Jason Mraz. Seacrest, you idiot, Simon's comment was about how Kris might have turned off the gals by revealing his wife. He wasn't giving relationship advice.
