Tony Stark's little bro?

I can't believe this hasn't come up yet. I mean honestly, it's all I see when I look at Danny Gokey's face on American Idol each week:
He HAS to be related to Robert Downey Jr.....right?

On another note, while I thought there were a couple other singers that should have moved forward to the next round, I'm digging this new format. I've always thought it was silly to vote for your favorite singers when the odds were in everyone's favor. With only ONE person going home, we should have voted for our ONE least favorite. The person who was the worst. Otherwise, average singers made it through each week because their friends and family at least voted for them. This time around though, the odds are 1:3 that you even make it to the next round. That's crazy! So when we vote for our favorites this time, it really counts for something. The average joes don't stand a chance. And btw, who ever wants to hear the worst singer of the night, who just kicked off the show, sing their crappy song again? Hooray for hearing songs from the WINNERs this time around.

Amen! We've been calling him Robert Downey, Jr. at our house until we learned his real name. Hopefully he will go far!
The new format is pretty fun to watch, but the new judge? Not so much. Call me old fashioned, but I think the original three were doing just fine.

Amen and amen. :)

I COMPLETELY agree with you on the new format! And yes, I've said from the beginning that he looks like Robert Downey Jr. also. I really like the blond girl... Alexis? She is my favorite of the three that made it through.

Oh my gosh!! The resemblance is crazy! I've never noticed it until you said it, but WOW. I LOVE this guy, BTW. Absolutely one of my favorites. I haven't watched the last show yet, so I don't know who got voted off and who stayed, but I'm not sure I like the new format. I agree, the voting actually makes more sense this way, but it doesn't seem real fair to me. What if one of the groups has way more really good singers than another, and so a bunch of people that shouldn't have to leave end up getting voted off?? Anyway, that's just my 2 cents.

Yes, you're right Jenny. That part is a bummer....it's the luck of the draw with which group you're put in to. But there will be 3 wild cards at the end that get to move forward. So maybe Anoop will be back afterall!

sachia said...

Wow, I cannot believe how similiar they look. Good call observant one. I haven't been watch AI but I might need to tunein just to see this guy.

Thanks!

Sara said...

wow I haven't watched the show yet, but yes that guy does look like Robert Downy Jr. Also, how is the voting different? I am confused since we don't watch!

megan said...

Every time Danny has been on camera (which has been a lot!), I've thought, "Dang.... who does he look like?" and could never quite place him. So THANK YOU! Agreed on the new format. It will be interesting to see how the wild cards are selected -- votes? Judges? Hmmm... and while she drives me absolutely batty -- I have to admit that Tatiana did a pretty good job. I wonder if she'll come back? I also like Anoop-Dogg.

100% agree, he totally looks like rd.jr. that's all i can think about too. he's so cute and fresh and love him. i hope he does well. and i'm kinda liking the new way too. it's nice that not everyone can end up in the 12.
