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 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 "…

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 …

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…
