(come on, Kris. Fight the powers that be!)
Can you feel it? It's that Idol excitement looming in the air. Because in almost one and a half hours, we will be free of the "Disco" and "Mo-Town" theme nights and all the song choice restrictions they bring, and we will find out just what our beloved Idols (I'm talking to you Adam and Kris!) choose to sing (and perform if you're initials are A.L.) when the song choice is open to any song their little hearts desire. Now since the song book is soooooo wide open here, I'm just going to leave it in their trusty hands.
And, of course, those of the judges since there is also that Judges' Choice tonight. But I have always been a fan of this, especially when it comes to Simon's picks. (Does anyone recall his choice for Katherine McPhee? Somewhere Over the Rainbow? Nuff' said.) (WILL Adam sing ONE? WILL Adam sing Wicked Game?) My excitement is mounting ...
Now I still have my pipe dream of an Adam/Kris finale, but I'm slowly accepting the fact that this most likely won't happen. The Gokey-noids are so far gone, they are all being robotically led in droves, hypnotized by cat-mating screams, only able to repeat "must vote Gokey" "must vote Gokey."
Not only are these fans hypnotized, but, tonight, we will see just how mind-warped our panel of "esteemed" judges have become. Will they be handing out those "A's" for effort regardless of heinous vocals? Will they continue to throw Kris under the bus regardless of stellar vocals? Ugh! I don't even want to think about the possibility. I'm unnerved and excited at the same time!
I just bought me a bottle of fine $3.00 wine, and only time will tell how much of it I need to drink! Bring it on Gokey! Bring it on Kara! I'll be watching and sniffing out the slightest hints of sabotage, taking my ever faithful notes, all the while cursing, smiling, drinking, cursing, laughing, loving Adam, drinking, cursing, blaspheming DioGuardi, drinking ... God I love this show!
