Looks believable to me. Thanks. Should be interesting.

T-minus 9 hrs. 37 mins. to start of the show.

Go Brooke!

I'll be looking forward to Simon ripping Jason if those are true...he's breaking one of the AI Commandments there.

How? I'm sure he's singing the original version which should work for him.

Oh I know, but it's Simon, you know if Whitney Houston ever sang a song he'll be all over that.

But you're right, I could see it working.

I really want to see how David Cook does with this week's cover of a cover.

Since when did we start expecting Idols to do their own arrangements?

I just think it's kind of lame...they have all these "theme" weeks but David C just finds a song that fits the theme that somebody's done a "rock" cover of somewhere along the way and does that. The same with Kristy country-ing out songs every week. The whole theme idea is to show some versatility and yet this group this year seems to almost be cheating. It's not just David at all.

David C gives you the Nickelback version of something every week.
Kristy does a Leann Rimes-esque take on something every week.
Jason gives us a weekly dose of sappy crooning.
Ditto Brooke.
Ditto David A.

At least Chikeze had some balls (and look where it got him - maybe they're all just smart).

Since everyone started treating David as the Second Coming of Daughtry and going on and on about how "original" he is when he's simply doing lesser known versions of the original version of the song.

To be fair it's the idiot judges as much as anyone praising his "originality". I wonder whose idea it was to credit Cornell for the Billie Jean thing? Maybe David's...didn't want Chris Cornell spoonmanning all over his lilly ass

I completely agree, and that's what I wanted to say in my last post. I don't think I did a very good job, though. I'm very frusturated with the high praise David C. is getting every week for his originality and uniqueness, when there is nothing original or unique about him. He sounds similar to the Nickleback/Hinder/Daughtry crap that is a sorry excuse for music. Jason and Brooke, for me, are far more unique, because they represent the singer/songwriter folk rock genre that is sadly missing from music today. I'd like to see them branch out a little more but they're so good and authentic at what they do, that I love them the way they are too.

I guess I'll be the lone soul over here in this corner who doesn't think it's a big deal and doesn't think David Cook should get all the flak for it.

I'm still baffled that people would think that any of the singers are taking credit for arrangements that, in most cases, they didn't do. Why isn't it a given that the singers aren't doing their own arrangements, unless it's announced as such? I mean, we ARE talking about American Idol. And the judges are given to hyperbole all the time.

The judges should tone it down a notch in these cases, but I don't think we need Ryan, the judges AND the singer having to say "... well, it wasn't my version, it was by so and so." Ryan saying "so and so's cover of ..." should be plenty.

Oh well. I'll keep on liking David (until he pisses me off or I grow tired of him - I don't care if the judges overpraise him, I still like what he's doing).

I wouldn't be surprised if they say something about the whole kerfuffle on show tonight. They usually acknowledge the scandalous rumblings - like last year with the whole "omg simon rolled his eyes when whats his name said something about the troops!"

Um, I don't get it. American Idol is a cover show. Who is creating their own arrangements this season?? Why is that necessary?
