Color can make all the difference. Erika actually looks thin tonight in the all black look. I think her vocals are a bit off, or maybe it is the key she is singing in.

Erika Van Pelt

Going all the way back to 1985, Erica's choice is Bryan Adam's "We're In Heaven". Very nice! First completely solid performance of the night.

Steven: I think you're too busy all over it. Gotta stay with the melody, but I still love your voice.

J-Lo: Such a powerful voice. You're this year's Janis Joplin. The arrangement left us wanting more. You look amazing, the best you've looked. I feel you coming together as an artist. I think you're great.

Randy: I kinda liked it. A nice 8 outta 10. Great song choice. Just be careful not to make too much out of a great song. If it ain't broke don't try to fix it. And don't let anybody tell you fix it. You feel me! You feel me!

>>Us late Gen-Xers liked the 90’s well enough. <<

I grew up in the 70s but always preferred the 60’s.

You are not yoked to a specific generation.

I don’t think he is mentally “there” at all.

And I mean that sympathetically. Some people are born “slow” and can’t extrapolate the results of their actions.

>>Out there somewhere where all OLD man riiiiiiverrrrrr.<<

Freberg: Well, it’s great to be with you tonight. We have a ...

Tweedly: Pardon me Mr. Freberg, my name is Mr. Tweedly.

Freberg: Well, we all have our problems.

Tweedly: I’m the censor form the Citizens Radio Committee and uh, I feel...

Freberg: You are from the Citizens Radio Committee?

Tweedly: Exactly what I said, yes. And I...

Freberg: And what is your purpose in being here.

Tweedly: I must OK all the material used on your program here, and I think the best method is to just sit back here and interrupt when I feel it’s necessary.

Freberg: You mean you plan to stop me every time I do something YOU think is wrong?

Tweedly: Exactly, I’ll just sound my little horn like this, “HONK!” and then you stop and I’ll tell you what’s wrong.

Freberg: Somehow I can tell this is going to be one of those days.

Tweedly: You just go right ahead Mr. Freberg don’t mind me.

Freberg: Yeah, Now I’d like to sing... “HONK!”

Tweedly: You forgot to say “Thank You” Mr. Freberg, Politeness is essential in radio programming. Your program goes into the home, we must be a good influence on children.

Freberg: I see uh... that’s a nice little horn you have there, thanks very much Mr. Tweedly.

Tweedly: You’re welcome I’m sure

Freberg: I’d like to sing a old river song in honor of National Mississippi River Boat Paddle Wheel week Mr. May if you please.

Tweedly: Very Polite Mr. Freberg.

Freberg: Old Man Riv “HONK!” All right tweedly, politeness I dig, but what in the world is wrong with “Old Man River”?

Tweedly: The word “old” has a connotation some of the more elderly folks find distasteful. I would suggest you make the substitution please.

Freberg: I suppose you insist?

Tweedly: Precisely.

Freberg: OK, music “HONK”

Tweedly: You forgot to say “Thank you”.

Freberg: Thank you, Mr. Tweedly.

Tweedly: You’re quite welcome I’m sure.

Freberg: Elderly Man River, that Elderly Man River, he must know somethin’ but he don’t say nothin “HONK!” All right hold it fellas, Now what Tweedly?

Tweedly: The word “something” you left off the “g”.

Freberg: But that’s authentic, “somethin’, somethin’,” that’s the way people talk down there.

Tweedly: I’m sorry, the home is a classroom Mr. Freberg.

Freberg: I know you said that.

Tweedly: Keep in mind the tiny tots. And further more, think back. You’ll recall you said, “but he don’t say nothin”, That was in quote. Now really Mr. Freberg, that’s a double negative. do you mean “he does say something”?

Freberg: No I just wasn’t using my head I guess.

Tweedly: I mean, after all, it should be grammatically correct. keeping in mind the tiny tots, you probably mean “he doesn’t say anything”.

Freberg: I-I-I I suppose I mean that, I guess, all right fine, you win, OKBilly, music... “HONK!” Thank you! thank you.

Tweedly: You’re welcome I’m sure

Freberg: Elderly Man River, that Elderly Man River, he must know something but he doesn’t say anything he just keeps rollin’, rolling, he just keeps rolling along.

He don’t “HONK!” doesn’t plant taters, potatoes, he doesn’t plant cotton and them, these, those, that plants them are soon forgotten, but Elderly Man River, he just keeps rolling along...

Tweedly: Excellent

Freberg: “You and me,

“HONK”

Freberg: The tiny tots again was it?

Tweedly: Exactly.

Freberg: Sorry about that, here we go.

You and I, we sweat “HONK!” perspire and strain... bodies all achin’ and racked with pain...

well, we got by that one

Tote that barge! Lift that bale! You get a little...

Take your finger off the button now, Mr. Tweedly. We know when we’re licked.

Well, that concludes “Elderly Man River.” Now turning to the sports page here... “HONK” Oh yes, and thank you for being with us Mr. Tweedly.

Tweedly: You’re welcome I’m sure.

Finally.

Seacrest intros video from yesterday when Jermaine was confronted by Lythgoe and other producers. A "shut the door, have a seat" moment.

They read off his criminal records/arrests from just last year. LOL! He acts like this is all news to him.

I wish Lythgoe would ask the obvious question: You're on a show watched by millions of people every week! You didn't think anyone would recognize you?

But it boils down to "we're sorry, but you didn't tell us about this, so we have to let you go."

As Jermaine/Joel/Kareem does the walk of shame, we hear his rehearsals from yesterday. Oh it's bad. Like how was he even allowed on the show in the first place bad.

And predicably, we come back live to the judges table where everyone looks appropriately disappointed.

Still no word on how they're going to deal with this absence on the show.

You are not yoked to a specific generation.

My iPod goes back to the 1500's, so I'm not even yoked to a specific century. But back to the 90's -- there big changes playing out in most genres and lots of fun little sub-genres spinning out. No excuse for these kids picking a bad song.

Skylark is pretty good.

I can see her doing the “Sunday Night Football” song.

She’s solid and will, once again, demonstrate that Country is a superior musical form.

And I ain’t a Country fan, but I know what sounds good.

I like her, too, but sort of wish she would have tried some of the songs they were suggesting.

I also noticed Randy back to his no help help. One person gets told to make the song their own and another gets told to just leave the song alone and sing it the way its written. Make up your mind Randy.

Her choice is Bonnie Raitt's "Love Sneaking Up On You". Excellent.

Steven: I haven't heard you sing a song bad yet!

J-Lo: I gotta keep it real, I gotta say you killed that! You did that Country thang.

Randy: This is our rockin' in-house Country girl! Didn't matter about the song. You came out and rocked it!
