I haven't seen enough to pick them all yet. I'm fairly ambivalent on most of the women so far, but I think my top two gals are Carly and Ramiele.

I know these guys are young but can we get anymore predictable with songs from the 70s? So many great obscure tunes that they could do to make their own. I thought it was a crap night with ok performances with David A's vocals standing out, and what I thought was the best performer of the evening, Chikezie. I'm not even that keen on the guy but he pulled something off.

Speaking of David A, I'm at the point now where he's getting a bit annoying and feel it's only going to get worse. I reckon our female contingent would disagree which is fair enough. He had fantastic vocals, but how many times do we have to hear Imagine. For me, it's at the point of being cliche.

Overground, I'm with you on some of that (song choice, David A).

I've always been curious about how that works - do they get a list of "approved" songs to choose from? Are they assigned a song?

There was an interview with Garrett Haley last week where he said he got to pick three songs as choices, but if another singer got them first, he'd have to do another, and that's how he ended up with the crappy Paul Anka song. (It was something like that, I'm sure I don't have that exactly right.)

If that's the case (or nearly the case), it's a pretty raw deal to bag the singers for a poor song choice, but I wouldn't be surprised about it. That's the way things go in Idol world.

So much stuff on Idol seems unfair, but at this stage in the game, anyone expecting a "fair" competition with no pimping of a contestant over the others, and ideas like "everyone just gets one vote" and the performers have total control over what they sing ... that's just a big ball of naivete. For the audience AND the contestants.

It is what it is - a pop culture phenomenon. I don't even know that the producers are surprised when a winner's record sales are poor. By this point it seems like the whole thing is more about the show and the event itself, not about finding some marketable, successful singer. They should just accept that and adapt the show to it.

It's like AMerica's Next Top Model - Tyra and Co. can talk until they're blue in the face about looking for someone high fashion and who can be this great spokesperson, but they should just accept that the winner will get the one Cover Girl ad and become a C-list celebrity (although to be fair, there do seem to be a number of contestants and winners getting a good amount of real-life modeling work, commercial and runway).

Wow, I do tend to ramble on, don't I ....

I'd love to see a list of the song choices the contestant gets to choose from.

*****SPOILER ALERT***** from mjsbigblog














THE most reliable spoiler out there right now, Joesplace, just posted song spoilers for the Top 10 Girls on her blog. The girls taped their performance show tonight. Check out what the girls sang and in what order…

After the jump…


1. Carly Smithson – “Crazy On You” by Heart
2. Syesha Mercado – “Me And Mr. Jones (changed from Mrs. to Mr.) by Billy Paul
3. Brooke White – “You’re So Vain” by Carly Simon
4. Ramiele Malubay – “Don’t Leave Me This Way” by Thelma Houston
5. Kristy Lee Cook – “You’re No Good” by Linda Ronstadt
6. Amanda Overmyer – “Carry On My Wayward Son” by Kansas
7. Alaina Whitaker – “Hopelessly Devoted To You” by Olivia Newton-John
8. Alexandrea Lushington – “If You Leave Me Now” by Chicago
9. Kady Malloy – “Magic Man” by Heart
10. Asia’h Epperson – All By Myself by Celine Dion

ETA: According to Joesplace, “In general the judges hated the songs and the performances. While there were a few positives with individuals (Simon loved a performance and Paula and Randy didn’t for instance), the judges didn’t like the girls tonight.”

Getty photos here. Brooke White plays guitar…

ETAA: Also from Joesplace, “Also, another tidbit: There is a list of 50 songs to choose from. The contestants pick 3 and the judges pick the one they will sing. Strange, I know, but it is accurate none the less.”

NOT fair. It gives the judges leverage they shouldn’t have–they can hand out the best songs to the favored contestants and screw with the others.

Ooh, there are a couple on there I'm looking forward to. And a little at the thought of a certain someone doing a song by a certain band. I believe either she'll crash and burn, or she'll lower the key enough to be able to sing it well.

Oh, I'll name names. I just won't spoil songs.

I'm excited to her Carly, Ramiele and Syesha. I'm doing about Kady. That song is really hard to sing.

And thanks for the tidbit about song choice. That sounds about right. And by "right" I don't mean fair, I mean "well, considering it's American Idol and owning a few ounces of cynicism, that seems about right."

Ok I cant figure out how to quote in code There's no font that matches exactly. Anyway, I dont get it. The judges are always bitching to them about 'poor song choice. I dont know why you picked that song' and they're the ones that actually pick the songs??? wtf.

I can't stand Alaina, Kady or Kristy Lee. If there was a way to vote them all off this week, I'd love it. I don't know the song Kady is singing, but I love the ones Kristy Lee and Alaina are singing, so if they ruin them, which I'm expecting, I hope it's them.
