If America Got it Right: Top 8

First, I had another David Cook dream. This time he was singing Trouble by Pink on a very Moulin Rouge/Bollywood-esque set...and it was AMAZING! He was shirtless and had the body of Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. I am officially losing my mind.

Second, I downloaded Carly's version of Here You Come Again and have been listening to it non-stop all week. Losing my mind and a complete dork.

Okay, on to the task at hand. Looks like preparing for Idol Gives Back screwed with the kids this week. It was not a stellar night. The show, with arguably the best possible song selection, was pretty much the worst of the season. Here's who should be in the bottom 3 this week:

Brooke White - Before the final commercial break, Ryan said they'd be back with Brooke singing Carly Simon. I said aloud to no one, "Shocker." Her performance was boring. And she cried. Again. I grow tired of her.

Carly Smithson - Wrong song. Period. I mean, really? The Show Must Go On is the most inspirational song she can think of? With her big ol' voice? Lame. I am very disappointed.

Syesha Mercado - Her vocal was pitchy and everyone knows, unless you are Michael Johns, arguing with the judges is the surest way to get sent home. It's time for my all time least favorite Idol (based on personality) to leave. She admitted herself no one "gets" her. Let's end her nightmare (okay, fine. MY nightmare).

On Notice - Kristy Lee Cook was her crappy self this week, but she did look good and it was her best performance ever. I think someone else will be in "Kristy's Seat" Thursday night.

The Best - Jason Castro. I love that version of Somewhere Over the Rainbow and he sounded really terrific.

I'm also a huge fan of Robbie William's version of Angels (NOT a fan of the Jessica Simpson version. Everything she sings makes me want to poke myself in the eye with a sharp object), but the judges were a bit much with their praise for David Archuleta. He was pretty good, but he's no Robbie Williams.

The Hot Tranny Mess - This kills me, but I hated David Cook. Hated it. He sounded okay, but I hated the song. And the fact that Our Lady of Peace is his favorite group might just be a deal breaker. Somehow, I will find it in my heart to forgive him...especially if he visits me in my dreams to make it up to me *wink, wink*

(sorry mom)

Song I'd Sing This Week - Just Wait by Blues Traveler. You?

Are we all super excited about Idol Gives Back? I read a recap and it sounds like it should be entertaining. I mean, c'mon. It's not like you have anything better to do...

I'm worried that in your next dream, David will have the body of Pink and will be at the high school from Red Dawn (Wolverines!) singing the weird Moulin Rouge version of "Like a Virgin."

I see that we have the same bottom 3. I have a feeling that Carly will be ousted for a big shocker. Usually when they sing songs that have some type of foreshadowing or irony ("Staying Alive," "Who Wants to Live Forever," "Blaze of Glory," etc.) that's always a bad sign. Plus, she jacked that song up big time.

And getting back to dreams, I think Michael was sending me a message by singing "Dream On." I mean, dream until your dreams come true? Obviously, he's encouraging to continue having filthy day and night dreams about him so that they will eventually become reality. He will be mine. Oh yes. He will be mine.

Oh, and I totally love that Blues Traveler song.

I don't know what song I'd sing. There's an awesome Squeeze song called "Some Fantastic Place." It's about death, but it's as uplifting of a death song as you can get. Plus, I'd just want to sing a Squeeze song. I'd be tempted to sing something like "After the Glitter Fades" by Stevie Nicks, but then I'd be breaking my own rule: NEVER COVER STEVIE NICKS.

I agree with your bottom three, but I think Brooke will be sent home. Of course the last time I said that she didn't even make the bottom 3. I also agree that Castro was the best this week.

As for what I would have sang, I would go with Elvis Presley's If I Can Dream even though my first choice would be Being Alive from Company, but I don't think doing Broadway is the way to go for American Idol.

Okay, I'm going to go a little differently. I'll say bottom 3 will be Kristy Lee, Syesha and Carly, with Syesha leaving.

Good lookin' out, dawg.
