American Idol: Rock Predictions for Our TOP 4!

Tonight on American Idol, it's our Top 4 and . . . Slash! Now there's some words I never thought I'd string together in a sentence. I wonder if the Guns & Roses and Velvet Revolver front man will have the ever-present cigarette hanging from his mouth as he mentors our tender, young Idols . . .

No matter. I am READY to ROCK! Tonight should definitely be interesting. Word on the street is that we might be in for a duet treat! Could this be? My dreams coming true of Adam and Allison singing together, just the two of them, on that wondrous Idol stage? Tantalizing me with hints of my Final Two dream? And oh yeah, Kris and Danny can sing together too.

The other word on the street is that tonight's songs come from the 70's and 80's. So without further ado . . . I present to you my ROCK predictions:

Rocker Chick Allison: Is it way too obvious to predict Janis for our lovable little red head? I have to include at least one, so I'll go with "Me & Bobby McGee." Or, she would be great for "I Love Rock & Roll" or maybe even some "Black Velvet." Oh yeah, "Black Velvet" would be SWEET!

Danny Gokey: Wow. Now THIS is a hard one for the Michael McDonald sound-a-like. (On a side note, Rock Week could not have come at a better time for my prediction of a Gokey fourth place finish.) But (Gokey lovers), he has surprised me before, and maybe, just maybe, he can do it again? Possibly when pigs fly, but hey, I'm not counting him out. Two words: "Free Bird."

Kris Allen: I'm picturing this plaid-loving little puppy dog more in the Bob Dylan, possibly even Lou Reed, vibe. "Tangled Up in Blue"? "Walk on the Wild Side"? But what I would really like to see Kris do is "When Doves Cry." I was reserving it for Adam, but I think it could suit Kris very well. Oh crap. There's always U2 also.

ROCK GOD, Mr. Amazing, Second-Coming-Of-Elivs, the Next American Idol, Adam Lambert: (If you're thinking, "gee, at least someone's not biased," I simply reply, "who ME?") Carrying on. Since many compare Adam's vocals to the stylings of Axl Rose, it might be fitting for Adam to sing "Sweet Child Of Mine." Personally, I see him singing "Patience" before that choice, and if he does, ooooohh . . . I will be swaying back and forth just like Axl in my living room, belting along, "I've been walking the streets at night. Just trying to get it right." (Yes. It is very entertaining come 8:00 on a Tuesday night in my humble abode.) Regardless of what my baby sings, I hope he has heard my silent prayer for the past week: "Please, Adam. Don some black leather pants? The tighter. The better? It's just little ol' me . . . Elizabeth. Kisses."

What do you all think? Please post any predictions that strike you below. And who do you think will perform last in the pimp slot tonight? It is a fact that Mr. Lambert has never gone first, but would they dare try and do that tonight?! Five hours til showtime!

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 "…
