I can’t believe this is the best video I could find.
Last night, “American Idol” hopefuls took on the songs of Michael Jackson, which served as a quick reminder of just how many terrible songs Michael Jackson has that I’d forgotten.
In the intro before Conway’s Kris Allen performed, we saw him playing music with his family and hanging with his cute blonde wife of five months. Then he sang “Remember the Time” with his guitar. But because of the arrangement or the mix or both, you couldn’t hear much of it. Still, he seemed more comfortable singing.
The judges continue to mostly like him. The new, typically terrible one is now a believer, and she made a special point to mention that he’d spent much of the week helping other contestants. Points! Paula was so overwhelmed she had a hard time talking. Finally, she called him “adorable/sexy,” explaining that she just wanted to remind people that she “love him, too.” Simon said the performance was a bit “clumsy” and that the vocals were “OK” and deadpanned that he thought Allen had “brought the wife out a little early.” Cut to cute blonde wife in the crowd looking peeved. Randy called the performance real “Jason Mraz-y.”
The Internet continues to give Allen love. Read a round-up after the jump.
