You're obviously too young to appreciate the classics.

"Not so much," said the 36-year-old.

It just didn't sound like a single. Given Idol's track history, would you expect to turn on any pop radio station and hear that?

I would assume that as a single, they'd tart it up a bit, add more instrumentation, a schmaltzy string treatment, etc.

Both possible singles are all bad imo. I dont get it. They've both sung WAY better songs than those in this season. Why they picked those is beyond me.

Not that most of the Idol winner's singles have ever been much other than saccharine radio-friendly pop schmaltz, but it just seems to be another reason why Idol sucks this season and is running down - releasing cover songs as their singles?

I like the Patty Griffin song a lot although I don't listen to the radio and have no idea who else has covered it or if it was made famous by one person in particular, or if everyone in the world knows that song and are sick to death of it. I just know it as a Patty Griffin song and I think it's a great song. I was actually moved by Crystal's performance. Would I buy it? I dunno. Maybe to support her. I confess I have never bought an Idol song or record before.

So these were both songs Crystal and Lee picked? I thought the singles were always selected for them.

They always have been in the past, but someone said earlier that Lee picked Beautiful Day. I actually find that hard to believe, because he really didn't seem all that comfortable up there or happy to be performing it. Hell, he didn't even seem very familiar with the song.

I could be totally wrong.

I loved Crystal's performance of "Up to the Mountain". Not sure if it would sell as a single....probably wouldn't, but it was gorgeous.

Tonight concludes my American Idol viewing forever. Had never seen the show before this season, and will never watch again. A lot of people have bashed this season, both within and without this thread, and a lot of the criticism seems legit to me. However, I'll just say that with the exception of Adam Lambert, every single ex-Idol that has performed on the show this season has left me completely underwhelmed. And if I could get any five albums of theirs, collectively, for the price of one, or get one album from Crystal at the same price, I'll take the one album from Crystal without hesitation.

I just lost the last remnants of whatever little respect I had left for you. This hurts me more than coolian's godawful pun.
