It's Motown Tonight, Baby!

Oh yeah! Tonight should be a good night! This week is a total 180 for me from country music week. I mean, how can you go wrong with a little Stevie and Marvin?

I am just so excited I cannot contain myself! I had to look at my roster of popular Motown songs so that I could make a few guesses on tonight's song choices (or what I think they should do).

Now, there is also the modern motown like Boyz II Men, so we may be thrown for some loops, but here goes anyways:

  • "Superstition" - Matt Giraud (oh yeah, rock it out on that piano!);

  • maybe a little "Signed Sealed Delivered" for Danny Gokey (he's gotta do a Stevie jam, right?);

  • I'm going to pair Smokey Robinson to Anoopie . . perhaps "The Tracks of My Tears"?;

  • Boy, I would love to see Adam do "Hello," but that song might be "untouchable" (in the words of Kara) ever since Cook got his hands on it. Adam always surprises me, so I'm not going to even try and guess what he's going to do; and

  • Lil' should finally step it up tonight, maybe with "I Heard it Through the Grapevine" or if she really wants to jam it out, let's give her "Ain't No Mountain High Enough."

The rest, too tough to call. Can you tell I like the Motown genre? Oooooo, can't wait!!

Any predicitions?

    I could see someone (maybe Adam) doing some crazy rendition of "What's going on?". That would be pretty cool.

  2. Yes! I agree. Or maybe "Higher Ground."

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 "…
