Idol Predictions: Disco Night for the Top 7!

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.)
Anoopie: "We Are Family" (8)
Danny: "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now" (8) or "Knock on Wood" (7) (Hopefully, it's the second one!)
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!)
Matt: "September" (6) or "Rock With You" (7)
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 . . . .

    Good and I laughed a little bit but good one.
    I see from bottom to top:

    7. Anoop with "YMCA" or "Rock The Boat"
    6. Kris with "Celebration"
    5. Matt with Rock The Boat
    4. Lil with 'I'm So Excited' or "Ain't No Stoppin' Us Now" or even "It's Raining Men

    3. Allison with "Celebration" or "Stayin' Alive" or even "Heart Of Glass"

    2. Danny with "That's The Way I Like It"
    1. Adam with "Funky Town" or "That's The Way I Like It"

    It's not what I think they should sing but something they would pick their seleves. I am guessing!!!!!!!!! Of course.

    As many a time as I fell off my platform shoes I always climbed right back into them. And bells...holy moly, I NEVER stopped wearing bells and thank goodness they are back in style so I don't look like that crazy old lady anymore.

    Actually I think tonight will be a good one (crossing fingers). If kids get the concept of disco which is a mix funk and soul with a Latin type beat they should just make for an enjoyable evening of entertainment.

    So get ready....and lets ROCK THE BOAT!

    I am not totally sure of this, but I don't think anyone has accurately picked what Adam will perform anytime this season. He seems to have a knack for picking some less known, although highly reconizable songs...and fantastically making it better, in the way only he can do. It's anybodys guess...however, I am looking so forward to a wonderful show. I (secretly of course) love disco. haha. Important thing, is to VOTE, VOTE, VOTE!!!!!!!!!!

  4. eyemightbeme4/21/2009

    What? No Rick Astley? Maybe he's not disco??? Guess that shows how much I know about disco! I was hoping Danny or Kris or even Adam might sing "Never Gonna Give You Up" or Together Forever" or "It Would Take a Strong, Strong, Man". So, okay, I guess I could deal with one of them singing "Boogie Oogie Oogie" but I have visions of repeated performances of KC & The Sunshine Band or Bee Gees, Donna Summer or even Barry Manilow (gasp and choke):-)

  5. swingink4/21/2009

    I'm guessing Adam would like to try a Bowie tune. Personally, I'd like to hear "Shining Star" or, if he slows the tempo, "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart?"

  6. misfittoy4/21/2009

    I agree with your choice for Lil
    Kris "Born to be alive"
    Anoop "Fantasy" Earth wind and fire
    Danny "Never gonna give you up" Rick Astley
    Allison "Don't Go" Yaz
    Matt Something Sylvester
    Adam "Relight my fire"

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 "…
