'American Idol' Recap: Simon Cowell Called Adam 'Best Entrance'

This week on "American Idol", the remaining five contestants will be singing songs made popular by The Rat Pack, a way-back-when group of entertainers that consists among others, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis, Jr. Two important notes, actor slash singer Jamie Foxx would be the mentor and each contestant has two phone lines for voting.

To open the night, the show put Kris Allen first. He will be singing "The Way You Look Tonight", and Jamie was loving his voice. Randy Jackson was also loving it, deeming it one of Kris' best performances. Kara DioGuardi said he was a "dark horse" while Paula Abdul took note on his transition from the boy next door to a gentleman. Simon Cowell however, thought it was a "little bit wet" and he can't win the competition.

Next was Allison Iraheta with "Someone to Watch Over Me". Randy compared her to Brittany Murphy with a vocal like Pink. Kara wished her luck to be in the final and said that she will gain new fans tonight. Paula was glad that Allison sang a ballad. Simon asked Allison whether she has a chance in the competition, and she said she has a shot. "I don't feel that belief in you still...I have a horrible feeling you could be in trouble tonight," Simon then said.

Matt Giraud sang "My Funny Valentine", and Jamie advised him to lower the key. Randy was not a fan of it, noting that it didn't all come up together. Kara did not feel the emotion and Matt's connection to the song. Paula loved it and so did Simon. "The only believable authentic song I've heard all night," Simon said.

Danny Gokey picked "Come Rain, Come Shine" and he said he won't changed the song much. Randy yelled "You can sing!" and said that Danny was the only contestant who can record an album with the type of songs. Kara praised his rat pack swagger while both Paula and Simon said they simply loved it.

Last contestant of the night, Adam Lambert, sang "Feeling Good" in Muse's arrangement. Randy thought it was too Broadway but he loved it. Kara said, "You're shocking in a good, confusing and shocking and sleazy and superb and way over the top but I like it!" Paula said it was like watching Olympics, and Adam is Michael Phelps. Simon said he was the best entrance they had all year.
