How do I get in on this 10,000th post thingee??? lol.
Wow, top Ten second thread.
LMAO! I make me laugh. ;-)
Last week was one of the worst American Idols, ever. I hope they do alot better this week. It seems though that this so-called greatest group of talent ever on American Idol likes to do great one week and then with complacency at their side do horrible the next week.
I think doing Beatles two weeks in a row was tough.
Those songs are difficult to do covers.
Hopefully they will do Motown stuff soon :-)
*Sigh* No quotes from me memorable enough to put on the ping? I’ll have to start getting my “clever” on.
Hey, if you don’t use all those claws, may I have them? I have a killer lobster dip recipe.
I love Motown music. Did you hear that Mariah Carey will be a “mentor” in upcoming weeks? How in the heck are they going to do that? They always say to stay away from Mariah songs cuz she’s so good that no one can do them as well in comparison. I predict a disaster for that week.
One of my all time favorite shows was when these guys were on:
If you don’t have their CD, buy it!
also a great movie:
I could certainly go for a Goth week...
From MJ’s blog:
Songs from the Year You Were Born is the theme this weekthe kids will be singing songs from their Birth Year. Looking at the list, its going to be 80s week redux. What songs should the Idols choose this week? Check out the list and tell us what you think. (list thanks to cheese):
Brooke White (1983)
David Archuleta (1990)
Carly Smithson (1983)
David Cook (1982)
Ramiele Malubay (1987)
Syesha Mercado (1987)
Jason Castro (1987)

I agree. I actually did some laundry during the show last week.
Gawd, I feel OLD.
Oh great. Like I needed to feel old on top of everything else. :-(
Nice job on the picture.....I was so tired of Kelly!

He just had a song debut in the Top 40 (I think 37 or 38)....the serial killer may make it big after all....
I agree....I was bored with the beatles too....hope tonight is better.....congratulations again for being the ‘1/2’ poster of all American Idol threads!
I am honored and humbled...This is the most important title I have ever had in my entire life and will take it to my grave. lol.
Has Apple got their money’s worth yet for their purchase of the Beatle song book on I-POD or is this Beatles week 3?
I think Mariah can coach, but they can have a broader theme for song selection.
Hope you're finally reconciled the loss of Amanda....;^)
You DA MAN!
There are 3 Phil Collins songs, a Chicago (Peter Etcetera) song, a George Michael song and a Michael Bolton song. My $$$ is on those...
Although tackling Skid Row's I Remember You would be sweet. He couldn't pull it off though...
Have you listened to their new record? It has gotten good reviews but I have not picked it up yet.
Ok, lets see how well these guys can pick songs this week. I don’t understand why, after seven seasons, these people don’t get that song choice can make or break you in this competition. With that said, here’s what I think they should do....
Brooke White (1983) - Sweet Dreams (Eurythmics) or Stranger at My Door (Juice Newton)
David Archuleta (1990) - We Didn’t Start The Fire (Billy Joel)...knowing him and his “messages”...
Carly Smithson (1983) - I Know There’s Something Goin On (Frida) or Back On The Chain Gang (Pretenders)
David Cook (1982) - Eye of the Tiger (Survivor) or Rosana (Toto)
Ramiele Malubay (1987) - Heart And Soul (T’pau)
Chikezie (1985) - Lover Boy (Billy Ocean)
Syesha Mercado (1987) - Looking For A New Love (Jody Watley)
Jason Castro (1987) - At This Moment (Billy Vera and The Beaters)
Kristy Lee Cook (1984) - Let’s Hear It For The Boy (Deniece Williams) or Self Control (Laura Branigan)
Michael Johns (1978) - Lay Down Sally (Eric Clapton)
Like, oh my gawd...the 80’s just rock...there are like so many songs to choose from, it’s so hard to limit to just one....fer sure...
Like, can you tell Im’ from the 80’s? I’m so sure...
Michael Johns doing the Bee Gees or Andy Gibb with that Aussie accent!
Also consider Total Eclipse Of The Heart (Bonnie Tyler)
David Archuleta (1990) - We Didnt Start The Fire (Billy Joel)
What Kind Of Man Would I Be? (Chicago)
David Cook (1982) - Eye of the Tiger (Survivor) or Rosana (Toto)
867-5309 [Jenny] (Tommy Tutone)
Ramiele Malubay (1987) - Heart And Soul (Tpau)
[I've Had] The Time Of My Life (Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes)
Kristy Lee Cook (1984) - Lets Hear It For The Boy (Deniece Williams) or Self Control (Laura Branigan)
Against All Odds [Take A Look At Me Now] (Phil Collins) or Time After Time (Cyndi Lauper) -- Islands In The Stream (Kenny Rogers and Dolly Parton) is a trap song
No doubt...I think the only other contestant that sucked as bad as Penn does, was when they had Master P on...I mean, come on...they need to pick people who can actually dance and don’t look like big oofs out there, stomping around stage. At least Penn is trying...
And by the way...I think the judges are pretty lame. They give Penn this awesome review, but totally bag others that danced really well, imo. I hate it when they “pimp” certain people.
That's my litmus test too. Remember Tucker Carlson was another who didn't try, spent zero time practicing. The reps of the pro's are on the line and I hate when they get bums who don't give a crap.
Kristi on the other hand is the best celeb I've seen ever.
She deserved 10's last night, she looks prettier than I've ever seen her and for a mom of two.
Michael's voice and singing style are very reminicent of Clapton's, so 'Lay Down Sally' might be a good choice for him. I could also see him doing a good job on Rod Stewart's 'You're In My Heart' (a favorite of mine). But I'd like to see Michael do Lynyrd Skynyrd's 'What's Your Name' to rock it up a bit. He's had a string of dull performances and needs to bring some life to the party.
On the other hand, if he doesn't wake up his performances soon, he won't be "Stayin' Alive" in this competition. ;-)
No, but I'll look to see if they have a My Space page with links to the music there.
Fans, I tried to make a big ping list so don’t cry if I left you out...just wanted everyone to see the spoilers above. ;)
