we're rockin' and rollin'... (UPDATED)

UPDATE: Looks like there has been a not-so-minor incident on the Idol stage, canceling dress rehearsal and sending the stage manager to the hospital. The show will go on. Ryan says he will explain.

They'll be rocking with Slash tonight as the final four head for the final stretch.

I see this night as custom-fitted for Allison and Adam. Kris should be fine too. So the one to watch, I think, will be Danny who has a massive fan base, but is really more soul than rock and roll.

And the big question is who will be picking up Matt's voters.

It's going to be fun to watch.

I'll be watching, and I'll be sharing my thoughts tomorrow. In the meantime, help yourself to the comment thread to share your thoughts before, during or after the show.

Rock on.

I thought Gokey was awful. His "money" note was especially craptastic.

I thought Kris was fantastic - can't believe he didn't get major props from the judges for that performance. Sheeshk!

I don't think Danny is getting ANY new votes tonight!

Adam = Awesome.
Allison = Awesome
(Why was Simon such a jackass towards her tonight?)
Adam + Allion = All kinds of awesome.
Kris + Danny = MEH.
Yes, Buddy.
That bus is most certainly coming in your direction.
But at least you see it.
You still sang well tonight.
Ugh... Danny.
He should have been taken to the back of the shed and whupped for that trainwreck.
Worst performance of the evening; his very worst performance this season.
Yet, the Judges always soften any criticism.
And he sings every song exactly the same way.
No originality at all.
For all the Taylor Hicks comparisons, at least I always felt entertained whenever he was on screen.

Between a so-so duet with Kris and and a ghastly solo performance, I don't think Gokey picked up any new voters. In fact, I'd say the bulk of Matt's voters went to Kris with a handful going to Allison.

Gokey was clearly the big loser from tonight's show; the only question is whether his existing voters have the clout to keep him around.

I really believe Gokey thought he'd done well. That last note was one of the worst I have heard on that show. It was right up there with Pickler on the high note in "Unchained Melody."

Adam and Allison were incredibly good apart and together. They really had fun with their song.

Poor Kris kept trying to get Gokey to acknowledge his presence and Gokey kept ignoring him on the duet.

I'm afraid Kris is going to be the one going.
