American Idol ... It's Almost Showtime!!!

                                          (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!

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 "…
