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: Rat Pack Night "Sways" My Opinions

Well our Top 5 performed the Rat Pack Standards last night, and when it was all said and done, I must say . . . I felt a little swayed. I have to use the word "swayed," first of all, because it's my clever pun on a popular song during the Rat Pack era; and secondly, because the night didn't make me into a full-blown convert -- it simply swayed me, like a gentle yet confused little branch blowing in the wind, unsure if it wants to waver on back to the safe side of "Adam & Simon," or dare to venture and possibly snap on over to the unfamiliar side of "Danny & Kara."

Sway Factor #1: Jamie Foxx is a rockin' mentor! Who ever would have thought that Mr. Foxx would mentor Rat Pack night?! Turns out, he did a kick ass job! Getting all up in Danny Gokey's grill, refusing to let "D" (nickname compliments of Mr. Foxx) detour from his emotions. Channeling "Field of Dreams" and telling Matt Giraud, "if you change the ke…

Idol: I-Tune Down Loads Equals Big Let Down

Well, as speculated, it was the Top I-Tunes Downloads theme on Idol tonight, allowing for something more 'current.' But the whole night, with a few exceptions, proved to be a big let down.
Let Down #1:Allison's outfit and Edward Scissorhands' hairdo. Even Randy couldn't wait to get through the positive comments to ask, "What is up with the outfit?!" We all know Allison's voice is amazing, so I have to focus on the question that still begs to be answered: Just what has the 'Glam Squad' done to her? Please. De-glam my Allison at once and give her back to me a-la 'Alone' days! But they won't do this, and you know why? Because it wouldn't be right if we had an unknown early front runner who didn't have the help of a producer pimp-out be allowed to shine. Oh no. We have to allow Simon tell her that she 'shouted the song'! WTF?!! Chopped locks + Fourth Slot + Insane Critiques + Mustache Doodles = SABOTAGE!
Let Down #2:Matt …

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 "…
