So here are the last two predictions for Idol for the "Songs From The Year You Were Born" theme. And then, I'm spent.
Anoop: I'll say "Cried Out" by Lisa Lisa (and the cult jam). ("My body never knew such pleasure. My heart never knew such pay-e-ay-e-ain".) Oh yeah. Anoop can combine his sexy dork swagger to his soulful ballad-style singing with this one.
Allison: Born in the year 1992. Wait. Did I read that right? Yes I did. Holy crap, I feel old. I'm going to just give her one song, and that song is "One" by U2. I'm all about the stripped down versions, and so I want to see her take the advice Paula actually gave to Corkrey the other week. Hey, if she was too stubborn to listen to Paula's pearls of wisdom, let's go ahead and give them to Allison. Sure, there are lots of songs that can keep Allison "young" and she could perhaps get critiqued for singing U2. Not that they're really old or anything, it's just that she could also do something like "Galileo" by Indigo Girls. But Allison has already proven her youth. So let's see her sitting on a single stool, single spotlight, singing a rousing, vulnerable rendition of U2's "One." Yep. She could bring the house down with that one.
So only 4 and 1/2 hours left! I've gotta be right with one of these! Can't wait! Can't wait! Can't wait!
