Celebrities tend to change their look and keep up with the times. Not Barry. I believe that he is stuck in the past with his "fashion". He really looked bad last night.


He didn't look very good last nite. Very elderly and frail. Just didn't age well. That's sad that he fell.. Poor guy

poor Barry

Great recap GG, as always

And that was definitely Bill Maher. Seacrest even mentioned him by name when they showed him.

After watching Barry Gibb's performance on last night's episode of "American Idol," TMZ has finally uncovered the missing link ... between disco and auto insurance.

Blake's singing the national anthem at Friday night's Seattle Mariners game vs. the Yankees!

I love how Simon made so much noise about Seattle sucking during the auditions ... and just look who's in the top three! A Seattle-ite! (OK, Bothell is technically a suburb, but still!)

I'd really like to see Blake do well, I'd love to see Melinda win it but I think in reality, Jordin would probably do the best commercially.

Please tell me he's going to beat-box the anthem...that would be just brilliant. I might actually start to sort of like him if he did...or not. But it would be cool.

I'm actually hoping he doesn't. It's bad enough we get singers throwing in 5,263,632 extra notes into the anthem. We don't need a beat-boxing version.

I'm curious to see how he pulls it off - he's not the strongest singer, and it's a tough song to sing. He might have to beat-box just to cover his flaws!

from mjsbigblog.com:

The Final 3, Melinda Doolittle, Jordin Sparks and Blake Lewis have a busy weekend ahead.

They’ll be filming hometown visits in the next couple of days. The video packages will be included on next Wednesday’s results show. The Top 3 sing 3 songs on Tuesday–one they pick, one chosen by media mogul Clive Davis, and one chosen by one of the judges. Each contestant is assigned a judge who picks a tune for them.

During the visits–at least this is how it’s gone down in the past–a town official will announce the contestant’s judges choice song.

Season 5’s #3 contestant, Elliott Yamin will also be on hand Wednesday to perform. That’s gotta be sweet, ’cause a year ago he was eliminated from the competition at 3rd place. Thank you TPTB for finally bringing back an Idol to perform on a results show. That will make up for being force-fed Simon’s X-factor winner, Leona Lewis, who is also slated to perform on Wednesday.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Blake Lewis has beautiful weather and a big crowd for his mini-concert in Seattle today. The local Fox affiliate is updating a picture page and has video–an interview and performance. He sings the 311 song “All Mixed Up” plus an original tune with a loop machine and chaos pad. For his mini-concert, Blake sang 5 songs, including Keane’s “Somewhere Only We Know,” Jamiroquai’s “Virtual Insanity,” an original song, “She Loves The Way,” and he backed up special guest Sir Mix-A-Lot on the rapper’s famous “Baby Got Back.” In an interview this morning, he said that he thought Jordin Sparks would take it all, but that his goal was to make the Top 10 and then the Top 4.

Melinda Doolittle was met by an enthusiastic crowd at Belmont University where she was a student. She sang “Home” and “Since You’ve Been Gone.” More coverage plus pictures from her trip to Belmont. They named a street after her, “Melinda Doolittle Way.” More from the Washington Post. Melinda’s mom says she was tone deaf until she was in the 7th grade… Also, she was a Belmont University mascot, “She wore a hot, sweaty bear costume and jumped around in the name of school spirit.”

Jordin Sparks was met by fans at her high school today. The Phoenix Fox station is covering her homecoming here.

(the hyperlinks are on the mjsbigblog site)

And that site also has the song listed that Simon Cowell chose for Jordin to sing (it's right at the top, so you've been warned if you don't want to know).

Baby Got Back! AWESOME! Ha ha haaa...

He did just fine on the anthem at the Mariners/Yankees game. No beat boxing, no vocal gymnastics. He had one or two wince-worthy notes, but very wisely took the final high note on "free" as a lovely falsetto, rather than trying to belt it out of his range and embarrass himself.

Nicely done, Blake. You ain't the best singer left standing, but you did yourself and Seattle proud.

Ah good times. I'm a huge M's fan this weekend too, as they're playing the Yankees

Not a big fan of the Clive/judges pick night, but oh well.

Didn't they used to have a night where they brought back singers who'd been eliminated (maybe in the Hollywood rounds) and let people vote for them? I swear I remember something like that in the earlier seasons (2, 3 maybe?) Not that I miss anybody this year, but I really think they did that in the past.

So Blake was performing his own stuff, wonder how that went. While I don't much care for him as a vocalist I have to give him credit, as he clearly brings a lot to the table beyond just singing. He seems like the type of artist who would actually benefit more from NOT winning, and maybe having a bit more artistic freedom to put out what he wants. We'll see I suppose.

I've always wondered how many of the contestants do their own arrangements of the songs. Blake does a lot of that, it seems, which gives him huge points in my book.

The first year or so in the rounds where they're being voted into the top 12, the judges had a "judge's choice" round, where they brought back their 5 or so favorites that hadn't been voted in by the viewing public, and picked one. That's how RJ Helton made it in during the first season, with that infamous "losers" quote by Simon that almost led to a brawl between Simon and Randy as RJ looked awkwardly on.

Is that what you're thinking of?

And yeah, go Ms! They typically do well against the Yankees ... unless it's the playoffs.
