The American Idol Top 8 get zombified for this week’s Ford Music video.

Paul McDonald tweets, “Fun day at the Ford video shoot. This should be a good one. The zombies looked legit!

Unfortunately, Paul doesn’t get to play dress up, “No zombie get up for me! Today I play a super chill dude in a hoodie that throws the frisbee!”

    They should have given the zombie roles to the girls, they are the ones who are walking dead.

    LOL.

    Well, Haley’s a zombie, what about Lauren?

    Stefano has one of him shirtless with the zombie make-up, and DAMMIT if he sucks this week but gets the “omg so hawttttt were iz justin beaver’s shirtles pik” vote I will feed him an effing cheeseburger, that’ll go straight to his belly.

    Oh my I thought the same thing!! Like, “Ah crap- just what we need- this kid throwing the heartthrob equivalent of a Hail Mary and posting shirtless Twitter pics for all those Beliebers out there.” I really didn’t think he had much “OMG he’s HOT!” teen fan girl prowess- but I’ll rethink that if he keeps being mediocre but getting through while better singers go home.

  • jammasta

    Let’s just hope he brings back the good Stefano who can infuse soul into a song. This isn’t the week I want him gone (I’d rather have Jacob gone. I think it would be better for tour to have Jacob after Pia, too.)

  • phil25

    I think Stefano has one of the better voices left. If he picks a fun song this week, I think he can do well.

    His problem is his confidence right now, it seems really shaken. I think his lack of certainty/performance experience and confidence causes him to over-emote so he comes across as corny on stage, even though he has an endearing personality off stage.

  • Grammie Kari

    I agree jammasta! Stefano does make a “cute” zombie! LOL! I would love to see him behind the paino rockin’ out an umptempo song like “Pretty Woman”! Bye bye, Jacob.

    Haley does have pretty hair, but need a little bit more work on the vocals. I hope it is a good week for everyone!

  • springboard

    Stefano has a great voice, but his phrasing is often cheesy. If he could overcome this with practice as we have seen in his coaching session with Iovine, he would be good.

  • platoken

    The one good thing about having Paul still around is his tweets and behind the scenes looks. Still bitter that he is there over Pia >_<

  • Elek

    Interesting — I can’t wait to see the ad on the results night this week.

  • flicker

    I’m glad to see there are other people who think Stefano has a good voice. I think he has a lot of room to grow as far as performing goes, but he has potential to be really good. I don’t understand why he is so villified this season. I was dismayed to see the shirtless zombie pic, because I’d rather he get votes on his singing merit.

  • hicksaholic

    I hope Casey doesn’t have zombie makeup on because he looks the same.

    If there’s a shirtless pic of him floating around and he looks a tad decent, then, yeah, the teen girls will eat that up and text their votes for him until their fingers bleed. Maybe even the cougar moms, too. I’m sure he’s got some of them on his side.

    In these pictures, it looks like Scotty’s hair is really growing out from the buz cut he had at the beginning.

  • lili_anne7

    Did stefano really post a pic of him shirtless? lol, I guess he is using the Tim Urban strategy.

  • bridget

    Funny thing about Stefano for me is that, although I’ve been ready for him to go before everyone else who’s gone home so far, I was impressed by his performance to get into the top twelve. That was the most surprised I’ve been this season, I guess I would say, so it was memorable for me. I still like everyone else left better than him, but – judging from that photo (yeah, I looked) – I’d say he’s in for a while longer, no matter what.

    Yea, it looks a lot better.

    I think he’s still coasting on that performance. That’s probably why he’s still hanging around. People hoping that he can pull out another like that. Well, I guess this picture will help him now.

  • TwigLA

    In the first picture, I was trying to figure out which girl Scotty was. In the 2nd one he looks like Ryan Seacrest. Must be Monday morning eyes!

    It will be a shame when Paul goes. It seems he puts out the most info and pics via his tweets and facebook.

    Stefano has a good voice but is way too cheesy. He always reminds me of a Vegas or Reno lounge act.

  • jinxx315

    I know Stefano gets a lot of hate, but I think he has a really good voice when he connects. And lately…I have noticed how handsome he is. He reminds me of John Secada almost for some reason. Can’t wait to see the Zombie commercial lol

  • smartalek

    They are copying Glee from the superbowl episode when Glee went Zombie.

  • alison8701

    lol Paul looks so disappointed. I know that’s just the standard “look down at the phone” mirror pic, but it makes him look bummed out.

    He looks so much better in comfortable clothes than in his hipster gear.

    I had to stop following Paul on Twitter because it’s just TOO much of a good thing.

    And by the way, Paul, I like your music and all but that “hipster looking at himself in the mirror taking a picture of himself looking at himself in the mirror” thing? Some fans might find that a bit… much. Just sayin’.
