Am I the only one who thinks Simon's "theme park" comments are usually spot on? Am I the only one who understands what he means when he says that?

As for singers "getting credit" for singing other people's arrangements, I assume all non-standard arrangements were done by someone else unless I hear Ryan or the judge specifically say "singing their own arrangement" or "you did that arrangement, right?" - because it seems to be somewhat rare, and they call it out when it happens.

(See Chris Sligh's Coldplayization of "Endless Love" last year.)

It's great that you know the song and you like it, but let's be real here.

And yes, it was a very "up with people" kind of song. I agreed with Simon about his theme park comment.

Exactly. I'm sure it's a great song. It's just not a great song choice for this show. Choosing a song that nobody knows is a cardinal sin on American Idol.

Dude, David did not pick that song. His dad did. And just because a song is a a good song doesn't mean it should be sung on American Idol.

I agree with Simon too. I mean, just picture yourself in some little theater or watching a parade. . . .Like when they get stars to lip sync in holiday parades and the such. It completely fits.

They just liked Kristy Lee Cook because she sang an AMERICAN song. Good move there.

It was a cheap, pathetic move to get votes for the "All American Girl" of the show. It sounded more theme park than David A's performance, I can tell you that. (And I also thought something was very odd about his performance, but Simon's "animated creatures" comment had me laughing my ass off!)

There's also something else that I was very weirded out by: What the hell was up with Paula's comment about "Couldn't you pick an American songwriter?"

Something about that seems fishy, or maybe it's just the drugs talking...yet again.

I never put much stock into anything that comes out of Paula Abdul's mouth.

See, I must have missed them announcing that it was Cornell's version. And maybe I'll start cutting David C. a little slack. He does have a good voice. I think I might just be jealous of the guy.

And, yes, Simon's theme-park analogies are usually spot on and last night was no different.
