American Idol: Rat Pack Predictions for Tonight!

Hip hip hooray for Tuesday! And, it's "Rat Pack Standards" on tonight's Idol! I can't wait! This should be sooo much better than Disco week! I mean, Sammy is a much cooler cat than um, oh I don't know, let's say . . . K.C.! So let's head to Vegas baby and bet on my predictions for tonight!: (again, you can click on the songs if you ain't hip to my jive).

Kris Allen: "Fever" First I thought this song would be a definite choice for Allison. But then, suddenly I envisioned Kris singing it in some funked-up fashion when I peered into my Idol crystal ball. Now we have seen Kris at the keys, and tonight would be a great night to tickle the ivory, so this is the only reason I worry about my prediction here. Who do I want to sing this song? Adam! (Could you imagine?)

Allison Iraheta: "Something's Gotta Give" Channeling back Kelly Clarkson's "Stuff Like That There," I chose this song for Allison because it kind of parallels Kelly's . . . and we all know the similarity that already exists between the original Idol and the sole remaining female in the competition!

Danny Gokey: "Sway" or "Mac the Knife" Danny is getting into the karaoke realm, and while I would like to see him choose a slow song, I have a feeling he might go with one of these tunes. They have Danny written all over them.

Matt Giraud: "One For My Baby" A more obscure song, but it definitely has the piano element, and Matt would be an absolute fool if he doesn't sit his butt down at that piano stool. I want him to stick to the melody tonight, whatever he does . . . it would be terrific if he's not riff-er-ific.

Adam Lambert: "My Way" This could be the show-stopper if he closes. This song is perfect for Adam because the boy has certainly proven to be a unique individual, doing it his way the whole time!

Four and a half hours to go!!! What do you think our Idols will or should sing? And will Tony Bennett be the mentor again? Please, if there is hope, it will be Michael Buble! So go on ahead and make yourself a martini, and please, feel free to offer up your opinions below. Ya dig, baby? (Okay, I'm done with the bad impressions now.)

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…

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 …
