Tonight's Idol Predictions for the 1985 Boys

Oh my goodness, it's Tuesday! The day I live for. (Well, maybe that's stretching it a bit, but it has become my favorite day.) And I still have 5 Idol contestants to pair song predictions to! So I'll try and make this short and sweet and combine these into one post (unlike Danny, Adam and Lil, who all got their own posts.) Ah well. Here we go -- condensed-Soup style.

Kris, Scott and Matt -- all born in 1985.
Kris: "Don't You (Forget About Me" -- I can see him doing this as a folksy-jam style, returning to the guitar that he abandoned last week (hey, I'm not complaining. I dig that he plays piano too). It's true that this song has been done by Michael Johns, but he did it more in the vein of a Chris Martin, rocker performance. So there is definitely room for a different interpretation here folks.
Matt: "St. Elmo's Fire" (Man In Motion" -- I'll tell you what. Whoever does this song out of this group, will be the champion of the night! Mark my words. I just hope somebody is smart enough to do it. There's a stripped-down guitar version (click on song title to view), but I'm going to hand it over to Matt for the piano. Please Matt. Listen to me.
Scott: Ah, let's just give him "Heaven" by Bryan Adams. Actually, this would be a good choice for him. But I have a sneaking suspicion that little cutie Kris will snag it.

Okay. That is it for those three boys for now. I'll be back shortly with predictions for the remaining two: Anoopie and our precious Allison.

In the meantime, any predictions before our big night??

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…

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 "…

It's a Crystal / Lee Finale ... And I'm Alright.

(Bye little, Casey.  Hey, we'll always have "Jealous Guy")
I'm alright
Nobody worry 'bout me
The end is now in sight
Will it be Crystal or that damn sexy Lee?

Yes, folks.  Don't worry about me.  I am still alive.  I just haven't been posting as regularly because I've been waiting to be moved again.  And if those hometown visits last night didn't get you a little misty eyed, well then may I suggest you check your pulse. 

In what was probably the most predicted elimination, we said goodbye to that Cool Texan, Casey James, leaving us with the two most deserving contestants of season 9:  Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox and Lee "You Can Mix My Paint Any Ol' Time" DeWyze.  And while I have always thought Mamasox would wind up with the win, I find myself pulling for Lee.  But (unlike last season), I can honestly say that I'm alright with either.  (And I think most people would agree.)

Lee's hometown visit ... well, let's just …
