Idol: Almost To The Final Four! My Song for Matt G.

Tonight's elimination will bring us to The Final Four! Holy Cow! Where has the time gone? It all just seems to be slipping away. My emotions are on high right now because while I say it's going to be Matt, an awful thought keeps creeping into my head as I fear for my little Iraheta's life. But, I'm going to shove that nasty thought aside, and stick with my prediction: Matt G. goes home. And I don't know what it is, but for some reason, Matt G. brings out my inner-songstress, so here goes nothin': (set to the beautiful tune of Billy Joel's "And So It Goes," click on the orange link if you need to familiarize yourself with the song).

In every season
There is an Idol.
Regularly in the Bottom Three.
He riffs, He plays.
On his piano.
I'm talking about the boy, Matt G.

I spoke to him in cautious tones.
He answered me with another hat.
And still, I was happy. When he was Saved.
Now, what the hell is up with that.

And everytime. I watched "So Small."
My heart was filled with wonderment.
On how Matt G. could be so vulnerable.
His fedora was his own torment.

He scatted. He riffed.
To be like Justin.
But we don't need another of those.
Why not just be
Your true, great self?
You don't want to listen, I suppose.

And so it goes.
And so it goes.
And I'm the only one who knows.


  1. Very, very good song.... I'm impressed -- nicely done. ;) ~J~

  2. Why thank ya very much, J! I guess we can call it Matt's swan song.

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 "…
