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.)
