Idol Tonight! Yee Haw!

Happy St. Patty's Day Everyone! It's Idol and Green Beer Time!

Tonight on Idol, the remaining 11 will be singing songs in the theme of "Grand Ole Opry." Not my particular cup of tea, but it should be interesting. I think Megan's voice might be suited for it, but I can't see this working for Anoopie.

Since I am no expert on the country music genre, I had to do a little digging on who the Opry members are, so that I could try and figure out who might be singing what.

Popular members include Garth Brooks, Alison Krauss, Dolly Parton, Martina McBride, Reba, Randy Travis, oh, and I see an Idol alum, Ms. Carrie Underwood.

Hmmm . . . maybe pair Alexis to Dolly . . . and we could pair Adam to Garth . . . oh blarney stone, this is a hard one! Like I said, this is not my forte. So, I ask you, what songs would y'all like to see our Idols sing?

    I vote for the "A" Team of Allison and Adam! They rawked!

  2. Connie - I have to catch up today! Too much green beer fun for me last night . . bad little blogger. Bad. But yes, absolutely . . two of my favorites! I see them in the finals! I have to ask you though, and this is something I might be exploring . . . is there an Adam Lambert/MeatLoaf comparison to be had? ;-)

    Could be! I'm a huge MeatLoaf fan and am quickly becoming a Lambert fan. I had a feeling of having downed a small amount of LSD last night when Adam finished. My reaction was a bit different than yours, but it's probably the difference in our ages. ;¬) I did laugh at your comment and UNDERSTOOD! He does work the camera AND the mike stand!

    I'd buy Allison's first album, I'll tell you! She seems to have more control over her gabbiness.......phew. I'm always nervous she'll blow the mood when they talk to her after her performance.

  4. Yes, I know! Now if we can just do something about those facial expressions. Maybe that will happen when Anoopie finds that eyebrow wax . . .

  5. and love the LSD comment!

American Idol Inspirational Song Night: Crystal Bowersox Cries. I Finally Feel Something. (Recap)

Considering I kept busy on my computer all the while Idol played out tonight on my TV screen, only giving the occasional glance up to notice that Lee Dewyze got his hairs cut, Kara got her hairs styled in a flattering manner that I can't quite put my finger on as to why they were so flattering and Simon's buzz cut looked especially unflattering ... I guess you could say it was all one big unnoticeable snooze fest until Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox took the stage. So really, all I care about commenting on is her for now.

Wicked Mic Stands and Wet Eyes: Now I don't know if Crystal got overly wrapped up in the spirit of today's date, but someone should have told her pot paraphernalia is not allowed on the Idol stage. Oh, I keed. I keed. Crystal's extraordinary mic stand was made from an old lamp with which she always used to perform in her pre-Idol days. Could that sentimentality be what brought on her sudden outburst of tears at the end of her emotional "…

American Idol Top 9 Perform: Casey James, BagPipes and Didgeridoos Make For One Good Night! (Recap)

Well hot dog, hot dog, hot diggity dog, folks, do we finally have a competition on our hands?  Maybe I am just a little excited about my tax refund or am perhaps silly over this ga-or-geous weather we are having, but dare I say, that in last night's Idol, I saw shades of Idol season 8!?!  Yes, from the humorous moments (one word: bagpipe) to some mad awesome vocals (two words: Casey James), I finally recognized a competitive momentum taking place, which left no alternative but to bring me to a rolling boil of excitement!

I will break it down with the highlights of the night:

These Intro Packages Are Workin' For Me!:  Question for you, Mr. Idol Producer:  Why couldn't we have used these endearing little intro packages wherein Idols comment on other Idols, showing us the viewer some real personality, earlier?  I mean, how much did I love learning that Lee Dewyze and Andrew Garcia have been in a bro-mance since Hollywood Week?!  It brought me back to the big bro/lil sis days o…

It's a Crystal / Lee Finale ... And I'm Alright.

(Bye little, Casey.  Hey, we'll always have "Jealous Guy")
I'm alright
Nobody worry 'bout me
The end is now in sight
Will it be Crystal or that damn sexy Lee?

Yes, folks.  Don't worry about me.  I am still alive.  I just haven't been posting as regularly because I've been waiting to be moved again.  And if those hometown visits last night didn't get you a little misty eyed, well then may I suggest you check your pulse. 

In what was probably the most predicted elimination, we said goodbye to that Cool Texan, Casey James, leaving us with the two most deserving contestants of season 9:  Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox and Lee "You Can Mix My Paint Any Ol' Time" DeWyze.  And while I have always thought Mamasox would wind up with the win, I find myself pulling for Lee.  But (unlike last season), I can honestly say that I'm alright with either.  (And I think most people would agree.)

Lee's hometown visit ... well, let's just …
