Break out the polyester, strobe lights and bell bottoms! It's DISCO NIGHT on American Idol! Yes, the Idol stage is going to turn into our very own Studio 57! I mean, 54! (Just can't seem to let that one go.)
Okay, prediction time! This week is going to be crucial for our Idols because TWO will be let go tomorrow night . . . (the horror!) Why do I feel like I need to start praying for my little Iraheta right now? But, I'm going to keep the faith, because I think our rocker girl (and I ain't talkin' about Lil) is going to turn into a disco diva!
There has been much blog/online speculation for this week, and I just don't know what to believe. So I have compiled my own short list, taken from what I believe to be the most accurate guesses, as well as some of my own humble thoughts. Most of these, I'm only going to give one song, and I will place my rating of how sure I am next to it, with 10 being pretty darn positive. Here goes nothin': (again, orange = links to click on).
Lil: "Last Dance" (10) (I'm feeling bold.)
Kris: "How Deep Is Your Love" (9)
Anoopie: "We Are Family" (8)
Allison: "Don't Leave Me This Way" (8) or "Dancing Queen" (8) (Let me just make it clear that much like Anthony Bourdain, I too have a disdain for Abba. [Nevermind Mr. Bourdain's American Idol reference here, of course.] But I have a feeling, I might be singing a different tune if my Allison "rocks" it out! Both of these choices would be great!)
Adam: "Stayin' Alive" (7) (Why not give him one of the most recognizable just to see how he can make it his own . . . suddenly, I'm more excited for Disco Night than I thought!)
So what do you guys think? Will tonight "Ring your bell"? I have mixed feelings, but I am excited to see these singers bring their "A" game (hopefully!), considering the pressure. Who do you think will be tonight's mentor? Not sure if we can beat last week's Quentin Tarantino, but there is speculation that it might be John Travolta. Hmmmm . . . .
