    Noooooooo “Dance With Me Father.” I am so tired of hearing that song. India.Arie might be interesting.
    Any guesses on the ____s? Dave Matthews Band? Please lord no.

    Oooooh, I bet Skyler is singing Jason Aldean :)

    Elise – Bold As Love (Good choice)
    P² – ?
    Skylar – Tattoos On This Town (Good Choice)

    The Climb is Hollie’s audition song. If she emotionally connects with it along with a powerful vocal, she could be safe tonight. :)

  • http://twitter.com/mcdeallover Sunny Mc

    Who is singing Fat bottom Girls? LOL!

  • Anonymous

    I wonder if MJ will get her wish and Skylar sings Fat Bottomed Girls. I’m not a huge Skylar fan but have to admit it would be pretty awesome. 

  • http://www.twitter.com/slimymeatballs Nick

    Meh, I was anticipating a lot more exciting choices for the contestant’s picks. Oh well, they’ve been doing a great job, so let’s hope they keep it up tonight.

  • http://www.facebook.com/aleeatorio Alexandre Oliveira

    ZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZZ The Contestants Choice List is so dumb.I mean, Dance with My Father?Really, Joshua?

    Let me see…

    Dance with My Father, I Want It All – Joshua
    The Stone, Crazy Little Thing Called Love – Phillip
    The Climb, Save Me – Hollie
    Ready for Love, Show Must Go On – Jessica
    Bold as Love, Bohemian Rhapsody – Elise (YEAH ELISE!Rock it Girl!!)
    Tattoos on This Town, Fat Bottomed Girls – Skylar

    I think it’s going to be a good show.There’s a *moment* coming…

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_IHIRO4P2ZPNQFGMK5KR57VH3E4 Nanc

    Could be the Zac Brown Band

  • http://www.facebook.com/aleeatorio Alexandre Oliveira

    I think it’s David Matthews Band, idk

  • http://twitter.com/AwesomeWillis Willis White

    Could be The Joker by Steve Miller Band for Phil or Elise? Not sure if Idol would approve of the lyrics though.

  • http://twitter.com/TylerWV TylerWV

    Wonder if Josh will change the words to Dance With my MOther Again if he does that song?

  • http://twitter.com/Lutrell4 Ira

    Willing to wager that Jessica takes on, “Dance with my Father”

  • http://twitter.com/ProjectErica Erica Marie

    Philip singing Dave Matthews is like burying his own grave. Sorry fans, it is just a wrong, wrong move.

  • http://twitter.com/Sowsyalite Sowsyalite

    It’s The Stone by Dave Matthews Band is my guess.

  • http://twitter.com/karendiamond1 Karen

    P2 …. The Joker - Steve Miller Band

  • Anonymous

    The contestant’s choices are pretty easy:
    Dance With My Father: Joshua
    The Climb: Hollie
    Ready for Love: Jessica
    Bold as Love: Elise
    mystery machine: P2 doing Dave Matthews
    Aldean: Skylar

    Queen: (just guesses)
    Show must Go On: Hollie (I Hope!!!!)
    Fat Bottomed Girls: Joshua (lolololol)
    Bohemian Rhapsody: jessica
    Save Me: Elise
    Crazy little Thing Called Love: P2
    I Want It All: Skylar

    who on Earth chose Fat Bottomed Girls? I hope it was chosen ~ironically.

  • http://twitter.com/Lutrell4 Ira

    They approve of Tyler. The Joker’s lyrics are tame compared to his comments.

  • Anonymous

    The contestant choices are really easy ( I think). Its the Queen Songs that are stumping me a bit. Here are a couple of things I hope to see tonight
    1) Jessica gets the pimp spot
    2) Randy stops calling the females “Dudes”
    3) Joshua just sings..no screaming, no yelling..just sing.

  • Anonymous

    So Save Me, I Want It All, Bold As Love, Tattoos On This Town, and “____” are all songs never performed before on idol. Not bad.

  • Valentin432

    I don’t think Dave Matthews clear songs for tv shows like Idol, etc. So I bet P² does The Joker, it fits him very well.

  • http://anibundel.wordpress.com/ anibundel

    “The Space Between”? Anyone? Get it?

    LOLOL For real! Fat Bottomed Girls??? If it’s P2 I’d be kinda creeped out tbh. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/aleeatorio Alexandre Oliveira

    Oh I think the first one is the only one capable of really happening

  • Anonymous

    did we ever determine if the song orders for each theme coorelate with each other? i.e. whoever is singing Aldean singing I Want It All? If so, it’s pretty easy to determine this week.

  • Anonymous

    Could the _____ -_______ band be the Trucks-Tedesci band (sp. sorry, can’t spell).  I could see P2 or Elise covering this blues band.

  • http://twitter.com/TylerWV TylerWV

    Hope P2 makes it.  HeeJun posted on twitter last night requesting prayer for p2 that he was in a lot of pain.

  • Anonymous

    Love to see someone attempt to do a Hendrix tune..I may very well watch tonight just because of that. Elise has the rock swagger voice to pull him off however, I’m not so sure about Bold as Love…very obscure song and his guitar makes it that much better. I would’ve really loved her to do my fave Hendrix tune All Along The Watch Tower. Would also love to hear Hey Joe even if it’s not very Idol appropriate. lol 

  • http://twitter.com/ProjectErica Erica Marie

    I hope Randy does not name drop once! That is what I hope to see.

  • http://twitter.com/ProjectErica Erica Marie

    I actually believe that! Then Josh can do India Arie.

    Jack Black and Casey were hilarious on Fat Bottomed Girls on finale last year.  Be hard to beat that.

    If Elise does BR and Hendrix and nails it, be a huge moment for her.

  • http://twitter.com/oceanarose Cathy Plemel

    Really, several people complaining about Dance with My Father but not about the climb.  That was the most popular audition song last year and has been waaaay overdone. As far as I’m concerned whoever picked it should be gone this week, I don’t care how well they sing it.

    Skylar is for sure doing Tattoos On This Town…she tweeted that she is doing a song that is more about home.

    Jessica: Dance With My Father (since the show wants her to connect more..she could dedicate that to her dad)
    Hollie: The Climb
    Josh: Ready For Love

    P2: no idea. I don’t think it’s dmb because they don’t clear their songs for idol.
    Skylar: Jason Aldean

  • Anonymous

    Omg, fat bottomed girls?! LMAO. I am so excited for whoever is singing that.

    And yeah, like many others I first thought Dave Matthews Band when I saw the blanks. Hope that’s not true and Idol is just trying to screw with us.

    Really excited to see what P2 does!

  • http://twitter.com/Lutrell4 Ira

    I hope Joshua does what “his” voting supporters look for each week;unbridled passion. A powerful, electrifying live performance that rarely fails to bring the studio audiences and judges to their feet.

  • Anonymous

    I think Bohemian Rhapsody and The Show Must Go On is for Hollie and Jessica. Don’t know who is getting what. Both songs are so good.

    Hollie is definitely getting The Climb and she’ll sing this 100 times better than Miley. A great Jason Aldean song for Skylar.

    Elise with “I Want It All” is my guess with Hendrix as her choice for the second song.

    Joshua singing “Dance With My Father”?

  • Anonymous

    Hmmm, if Josh sings Dance, the song list must have
    only had 6 songs on it! If Jessica sings the climb I might
    cry. Lol. If she sings ready for love (one of my fave
    songs,) I would love it, but will America?

  • http://twitter.com/oceanarose Cathy Plemel

     I’ve learned alot more about Phil this week and I really wish I could like his voice because he seems like a good guy.  His voice just isn’t my thing.  Hopefully he can make it through.

    Based on the list I’m thinking Elise has a strong night…not sure about the rest. I’m sure Jessica and Joshua will remain consistent.

    Phillip is for sure safe with whatever he chooses to sing or do tonight. He’s the only guy left in the competition. LOL.

    The Show Must Go On – Jessica
    Fat Bottomed Girls – Skylar (Bucky Covington version of this in Season 5)
    Bohemian Rhapsody – Elise
    Crazy Little Thing Called Love – Joshua (like what Fantasia did)
    Save Me – Hollie 
    I Want It All – Phillip Phillips

    Dance With My Father – Joshua
    The Climb – Hollie (she did this song in her audition last year)
    Ready For Love – Jessica (soul/r&b song)
    Bold As Love – Elise
    Mystery Song – Phillip
    Tattoos On This Town – Skylar

    Could really be an interesting night.

  • http://www.facebook.com/aleeatorio Alexandre Oliveira

    Elise pretty much disappointed me in the last 3 weeks.She didn’t pick wisely, so I hope she nails Bohemian Rhapsody/Show Must Go On and Bold as Love.That would be fan-freakin-tastic.

  • http://twitter.com/WiltedYouth Tomas

    Here are my predictions. The contestant choice songs were far easier to guess at. The Queen songs… not so much. Truthfully, I think we can expect some out-of-left-field stuff tonight.

    JOSHUA
    “Save Me” – Queen
    “Dance with My Father” – Luther Vandross
    PHILLIP
    “Fat Bottomed Girls” - Queen
    “The Stone” (?) – Dave Matthews Band (?)
    HOLLIE
    “The Show Must Go On” – Queen
    “The Climb” – Miley Cyrus
    SKYLAR
    “I Want It All” – Queen
    “Tattoos on the Town” – Jason Aldean
    JESSICA
    “Crazy Little Thing Called Love” – Queen
    “Ready for Love” – India.Arie
    ELISE
    “Bohemian Rhapsody” – Queen
    “Bold as Love” – Jimi Hendrix

    If I’m right, well, Elise would have the strongest setlist IMO. She’s capable of nailing both songs without being forgettable. I think she’s the only singer who could do “Bohemian Rhapsody” justice. I do fear that *maybe* Jessica will sing it, but I don’t think it would have the same impact. It would fizzle out like “Try a Little Tenderness” did last week.

    I’m baffled as to why Josh would pick the overdone “Dance with my Father.” Didn’t Jermaine sing that already? It seems as though he had no clue what to choose, so he went with the safest bet. Hollie should do fine with “The Climb,” although it’s an ultra-safe pick for her, too. Not sure it will get people picking up the phones for her.

    Queen-wise, well, I think they’re all fine choices. A nice mix of some more obscure material with the well-known ones. Should be a good night, overall. Really, though, it’ll be more of a battle between Elise and Hollie as to should advance to next week. Right now, I see Elise having the upper hand, but anything could happen…

  • Anonymous

    Well last year Jacob got raves for Dance with my Father Lauren for The Climb and Casey A. for Fat bottom girls on the finale shouldn’t people at least give a years brake in between I mean there are more then 10 songs to choose from isn’t there?

  • Anonymous

    Lee Has said they wouldn’t clear Dave Matthews so I’m thinking that’s not it. I know it’s a different season and could be why it’s a secret. I’m going with Steve Miller Band, The Joker though.

    The rest of the songs…whatever. I hope whoever does the Climb gets voted out.

  • http://twitter.com/mcdeallover Sunny Mc

    How about P2 sings Fat Bottomed Girls while holding JLo’s hand. This would be epic!!! ;)

    The Joker by Steve Miller – Perfect for Phillip

     Common Joshua. Dance with my father? I forgave you for the coronation song, but cmon.

    I totally have been hoping for Skyler to do some Jason Aldean. Also, I love Mily Cyrus more than anything in the world, so I don’t care if people criticize that choice lol.

    i just don’t know how you’re gonna get away with singing “I’m a joker, I’m a smoker, I’m a midnight toker” on American Idol. lol Do love that song though. Imo, there’s a better chance DMB clears a song than that being allowed on Idol. And like a few have said the ____’s seem to be a clue pointing to the Space Between.

    Tattoos on this Town by Jason Aldean- Skylar

  • Reflections On Life

    If Skylar isn’t doing Fat Bottom Girls, then should do  Crazy Little Thing Called Love and put a rockabilly spin on it.

    In the original Queen thread, I posted links to a couple of country covers of FBG, including Kid Rock and The Band Perry on YouTube.  She could even bluegrass it with a banjo and the fiddler-stalker she had last week.

    I’m excited to see if she does this.  I love it when women reclaim songs & sayings that were meant to make fun of them.

    I think Joshua’s the one whose doing India Arie – Ready for Love, he had  a version of that on youtube and Jessica is probably doing Dance with My Father.

  • Anonymous

    It could be a DMB song. Stranger things have happened. Stefan Lessard from the band has said (on twitter) that he’d be on the show if asked. Maybe a song was cleared. It will be fun to find out exactly what the mystery song is! 

    I really enjoy Phil and I hope he does well, tonight. Actually, the only ones left who I don’t enjoy are Skylar and Jessica, but I certainly don’t hate them. It should be a good night on Idol!

  • http://twitter.com/oceanarose Cathy Plemel

    Dwight Yoakam did a version of Crazy Little Thing that would fit Phil or Skylar well.

    Stefan Lessard (@slessard) just tweeted that he’s excited about tonight, and then he tweeted Randy Jackson, so I think DMB for Phillip is a safe bet.

    The only song I am disappointed is “Dance with my father”. That song has no melody… But I’m sure Joshua can pull it off!

  • Anonymous

    I hope that it is true that Phillip is doing a DMB song. That would be a quite a moment for Phillip if it is true.

  • Itsmekg

     This song list doesn’t make me happy.  Jacob Lusk did Dance with My Father last season, I can’t remember if he got rave reviews or not, but I HOPE & PRAY that Joshua doesn’t do it this year (anybody but Joshua)…I never did like that song much even when Luther sang it.

    I will be basing my likes and dislikes from these performances, because I know 2 of the Queen songs, and 2.5 of the own choice songs.  I know India.Arie and Luther, and I might now Miley.

    This should be interesting for me.

    I hate “The Climb” and hope Jessica is NOT singing it.  It is not her type of song anyway.  Totally in Hollie’s genre.

    mj is probably correct in her Contestant’s Choice List predictions.  Not sure who’s singing what Queen songs though!  I hope it’s a good show!

  • Anonymous

    Why would anyone pick “Dance with my father”? Didn’t Jermaine sing that song already? I know it’s either Joshua or Jessica, and I’m leaning towards Jessica because of Jimmy’s comments last week. Ready for Love would probably not be considered ”age appropriate”, *rolling my eyes*. But still, you can pick any song, and that’s what you pick, ugh ?

  • http://www.realitywithoutapologies.blogspot.com/ lisakn

     Makes me think Jessica will do the climb b/c of what Jimmy said about her singing more age appropriate songs. I can see Skylar singing that song too, but imo Jessica needs to try and stay away from ballads for at least one week.

  • http://twitter.com/Jakeysnakey19 Jake Williams

    Maybe Hollie. Elise’s voice just doesn’t fit that song IMO.

  • sf3456

    I hope it’s not Joshua doing “Dance With My Father”.  That song is not good for anybody who does it.  Plus, Jermaine already did it and Jacob Lusk did it last season.  You know people are already comparing Joshua to Jacob and you know that’s not fair and ugh.  Guess I’ll just be ready to vote tonight.

    And it doesn’t matter what Dave Matthews song Phillip does, I’m going to be mad.  Big Dave Matthews Band fan (almost have all of the albums) and he’s just going to ruin the song doing a bad impersonation.  So, I’m going to be mad.  I’m already mad.

    Just went and listen to Bohemian Rhapsody and I feel sorry for anyone trying to tackle that song. It’s all over the place. 

  • Shuki Kato

     Whaaaaa, Jessica should sing more ballads, not less (IMO). “Ready for Love” is a gorgeous song, I really really hope she’s the one that chose it.

  • Anonymous

    I think MJ’s pretty spot on imo. I do think P2′s personal choice is “The Joker” by Steve Miller Band though.

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/XDQP2Y46M5B3OHOKALDDGDHQCM Leandro

    very safe song choices…I’m pretty sure Queen would clear all his songs since they’re going to the show. Elise could play something like Keep Yourself Alive. It’s not a very known song but it’s heavy and catchy. Once again we’ll have an horrible 1:40 retail of Bohemian Rhapsody.

    Fat Bottomed Girls – Skylar PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE

    Skylar would serious kill it (in a good way!) I remember Bucky’s performance and it was quite good unfortunately, that was the week he was eliminated but he went out on a high note though!

    I think it would be a lot of fun Skylar singing Fat Bottomed Girls.

    If we have to suffer through The Climb, let’s see what P2 can do with it.  Have some fun, P2.

  • http://www.realitywithoutapologies.blogspot.com/ lisakn

     But she needs to show a different side for a minute. We know she can sing the snot out of ballads, but ballads get old really fast on this show. Imo of course.

  • Anonymous

    the more I think about last week’s critiques by Jimmy, I just don’t think he’d let her sing Ready For Love and I think you’re right and it’s Joshua. It’s such an emotional song and too old for Jessica. Right up Joshua’s alley though. 

  • http://www.realitywithoutapologies.blogspot.com/ lisakn

     I agree. lol.

  • sf3456

    Didn’t Bucky Covington sing “Fat Bottomed Girls” during Season 5?  If I remember, it was my favorite performance by him!

    It’s also the performance that got him the boot.

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Connie-Blank/1546613435 Connie Blank

    It is very possible that P2 is going to tackle “Bold as Love” and the blank-ity, blanks is “the Joker”, which is right in Elise’s wheelhouse!

    Based on the song choices and my gut feeling how tonight will go. Here’s how I think America will vote. NOTE: These aren’t personal favs, just who will be the most to least popular tonite.

    TOP THREE
    1st= Phillip Phillips (He gets the Colton vote. He’s 110% safe)
    2nd=Jessica Sanchez (She could have a moment with the India.Arie song)
    3rd= Skylar Laine (I predict solid wk. The Country vote will keep her safe)
    BOTTOM THREE
    4th=Elise Testone (I predict two great performances, she’ll make the Top 5)
    5th=Joshua Ledet (I think his fanbase will be lulled into false security. B3)
    6th=Hollie Cavanagh (Unless she picks & kills “Save Me”, she’s going home)

    My money is on Hollie going home tmrw.

    She’s already sang 4/9 upbeat songs, and although some were very good (Love You I Do), others weren’t (How Will I Know). To me it seems like she’s trying to show off her versatility, and she would be better off just sticking to what she is best at, ballads.

    Though I’m going to refute myself and admit that “Love on Top” is my favorite cover song of hers pre-idol and I really wanted her to sing that this week.

    If Phillip sings “Fat Bottomed Girls”, I’ll stop mocking him till the end of the season. Now THAT would be hilarious.

    Constantine did a good version in Season 4 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=thnPiKouk5Q

    I think Jessica has either “The Climb” or ‘Dance With My Father”, because those are the only 2 that could be considered age appropriate. And if those are the kind of songs that Jimmy think she should be doing, I fear for this girl’s post-idol career.

    Other than that I’m kinda interested in tonight. I’d say my anticipation is middling at the moment.

    The personal choice songs don’t look too hot.  I hope that the contestants can pull them off, since the songs must mean something to them.  The Dance With My Father choice has been done before, and if it’s Joshua’s pick, it could land him in the bottom three.

    OMG — Fat bottomed Girls–whoever sings that song and KILLS it will get my vote.  

  • http://profile.yahoo.com/OSOOTOBRL4XGHQNICOXCCN5IXQ lisa

    someone asked if Joshua is a guy,well I’d like to know if Elise is a female?does she know any songs by women.A woman should not be able to sing a guys song as good as the guy who sings it.her voice in so annoying…….hope she’s gone this week

  • too-cool-for-school

    Everything looks great!

    Oh, except for the Queen songs.

    Risky choices, IMO. ‘Save Me’ could be a moment for someone if they really nail it, or it could be flat and dreadful if they don’t. ‘The Show Must Go On’ is a tall order. Carly got hammered for it in season 7 even though she did a pretty good job.

    ‘Crazy Little Thing Called Love’ is a very banal choice at this point. It pretty much always winds up being bad karaoke. ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’ is a little worrisome too. ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ would be awesome for Skylar, yawn for anyone else. ‘I Want It All’ would be good for P2, but all of these choices still are lackluster to me.

    Contestants choice, I’m looking forward to those, even if I don’t love each of the songs.

    I asked If Joshua was a guy in response to a comment (that was deleted) that said “Phillip is the only guy left in the competition”. I love Elise and Joshua and Phillip§ Actually I feel like this season I really am in love with all the top 6

    Phillip’s doing The Space Between by Dave Matthews Band….

    the drawn spaces are clever lol

    Jessica can sing DWMF ala Tamyra Gray from S1

    MJ is probably right on the mark for his Song Choices. I’m just excited and afraid for all of them. With these song choices..Who can make it? Who will break? .

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_SYFK77IYLRQIVATQ2MJKSW2J7Y Pam

    The Dance With My Father choice has been done before, and if it’s Joshua’s pick, it could land him in the bottom three.

    Didn’t Jermaine perform that early on after the start of the performance shows?  I could see Joshua getting booted for that one since it’s been done so recently already.

  • Incipit

     

    “Just went and listen to Bohemian Rhapsody and I feel sorry for anyone trying to tackle that song. It’s all over the place.  “

    It’s also over six minutes long – but not to worry, it’s been done on Idol before, so they have a preshaped and chopped version, like HS cafeteria Mystery Meat, that will fit into the tiny Idol performance window.

  • sf3456

    If Phillip is really doing “The Space Between”, I’m going to go flip some tables and chairs.  That is in my top ten list of Dave Matthews Band songs.  I don’t want him ruining that.

  • http://twitter.com/Jakeysnakey19 Jake Williams

    What I think:
    The Show Must Go On-Jessica
    Fat Bottomed Girls-Phil
    Bohemian Rhapsody-Elise
    Save Me-Hollie
    Crazy Little Thing Called Love-Josh
    I Want It All-Skylar

    Dance With My Father-Jessica(NOOO!)
    The Climb-Hollie ….Bye!
    Ready For Love-Josh
    Bold As Love-Elise
    The blank one goes to Phil(duh)
    Jason Aldean goes to Skyar(duh)

     But what I want is:
    1.Skylar to trade with Phil and sing FBG.
    2.Jessica to abandon that overdone sappy song
    3.For Miley to be banned from all Karaoke shows
    4. Skylar to change it up.

  • http://twitter.com/kevonlie Kevin Lee

    why “Skykar?” mj? it should be “Skylar.” lol

    I think “Ready For Love” could be perceived as age-appropriate for Jessica — India.Arie was only 15 when she released it, so lots of people will have “young” associations with it despite the relatively mature lyrics…

  • http://twitter.com/GottaVote4DREW Ryan

    LOL, the titles kind of go with certain contestant’s situations. Hollie- the show must go on. Jessica- SAVE me. just think thats funny. But i also feel like the 2 underdogs (elise and hollie) will both have there “moment” tonight and both will be top 5. probably wrong, but we’ll see………

  • http://twitter.com/Jakeysnakey19 Jake Williams

    I actually think we may end up losing Skylar or Josh tomorrow. Hollie and Elise have the “save me” vote. Phil has the “cute guy” vote. Jessica will still be riding on the save. I think the voters will be complacent with Skylar and Josh this week since it has been a little bit since both of them were in the bottom.

  • gabriel oak

    I think The Climb is one of the worst songs ever written. What if Skylar does it in a yelling mode? But more likely Hollie. I can’t imagine Jessica singing that song. It would be hysterical if Elise did it.

  • http://twitter.com/jepriy Jepoy Ramos

    Jessica’s grandma passed away last week

    I think she will sing Dance With My Father

  • http://twitter.com/tinawinabina Tinawina

    Hmmm… you could be correct. I guess the lyrics aren’t *that* mature.

    Was India really 15 when that was released? I don’t remember that. Wow.

  • gabriel oak

    Does this mean Skylar is getting the pimp spot tonight?

  • http://www.realitywithoutapologies.blogspot.com/ lisakn

     I think so too. I think Skylar might be in trouble this week.

  • http://twitter.com/Jakeysnakey19 Jake Williams

    BTW. I think that blank one is Nitty-Gritty Dirt Band.

  • Christopher Auyeung

    I thought How Will I Know was fantastic. She was fierce on that song. Ballads every week would be a snoozefest, and the judges and America would give her so much crap for it.

  • http://www.realitywithoutapologies.blogspot.com/ lisakn

     Elise has sang female songs. The zeplin song was pure genius, and so was Vienna. I don’t think she had a great week with Soul, but that’s the only bad week she had imo.

  • Krystal Gordon

    I honestly think Hollie will have a moment tonight she has been tweeting all week about how excited she was for this week and im sure the judges will talk about how far she has come with singing “The Climb” soo yayy #Holliepop! Its time for Elise to go home!! IMO

  • Shuki Kato

     I mentioned that song because it was my least favorite of hers, but if you liked it fine, not a problem. Excited about tonight!!

  • http://www.realitywithoutapologies.blogspot.com/ lisakn

    Phillip might be doing Bold As Love. The John Mayor version sounds like something he would sing.

  • http://twitter.com/holeigh_annie Holeigh

    Dance With My Father?? Again?????  Uuuggghhh.

    Love John Mayer’s cover of Bold As Love, that could be cool.  And Skylar + Fat Bottomed Girls = looooove

  • http://twitter.com/DanArizmPerez Mauricio Arizmendi

    If Joshua sings “Dance” he deserves to be voted off…..and I don’t know why…but I think he will sing The Climb

    ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ would be awesome for Skylar, yawn for anyone else.

    Sure, if someone want to hear the  lyrics on the verses butchered into unrecognizablity by the Idol machine.

    P2 is the only one for whom this song choice would make any sense.

  • http://anibundel.wordpress.com/ anibundel

    Twitter is reporting that TMZ says Ryan is sick and might not host tonight?

  • http://twitter.com/WiltedYouth Tomas

    Yeah, looks like Uncle Nigel will be stepping in for him tonight.

  • http://anibundel.wordpress.com/ anibundel

     And here I thought it was finally Carson Daly’s big break.

  • Anonymous

    I guess we will finally see what AI would be without Seacrest, and why he is irreplaceable. Nigel hosting may be the biggest trainwreck of the night ;)

  • Christopher Auyeung

    Oh – you liked Turn the Beat Around better? Interesting. But yes, excited for tonight! Crossing my fingers that Jessica gets the pimp spot tonight :P

  • Anonymous

    I am really surprised to see some here actually making predictions before anybody has even sung one note! Wow!  Just based on what we think they will sing?  I don’t think so.

    Also, Elise doesn’t have the power and range to pull of “Bohemian Rhapsody”.  The ones who are the power singers with range are Jessica, Hollie and Joshua.  They should do very well tonight with the Queen songs. 

    After how Hollie sang Adele, I wouldn’t bet against her.
    Here’s to a good show tonight!

  • Anonymous

    That reminds me of the OTT reports that Lauren was sick, and that she would be replaced in the finale by Haley.

  • http://anibundel.wordpress.com/ anibundel

     Oh, I’m 100% sure Ryan will appear on my TV in 2 minutes. But it’s fun to fantasize about them bringing in Cat Deeley as a pinch hitter last minute.

    Is Rachel Crow available on short notice?

  • Kirsten

    Ugh. If Jessica sings that boring India Arie song, after having to go first and sing  Boheminian Rhapsody, she’s probably doomed. But, I can’t see anybody else who would sing it.

    Sometimes the songs you love aren’t the songs that you can sing the best (or aren’t the songs that will help you stay in a competition).
