    ^Regarding the video… Yay Tim! Hope he’s finally going to get some more air-time in this episode.

  • jammasta

    James Durbin and Stefano Langone sing “Get Back”

    …They sing together?

    what

    James Durbin and Stefano Langone

    wtf is this witchcraft?! I had to quote it twice and I still can’t picture it in my mind.

    That’s like Barney the Dinosaur and Led Zeppelin having a duet.

    Oh God I just pictured Barney singing a sexy rendition of Whole Lotta Love. DOES NOT COMPUTE! ERROR! *crash*

  • gangreen29

    Jammasta they sing in that commercial that Anne posted above lol, you can hear it for yourself.

  • jammasta

    It’s still effing with my mind O_O. James and Stefano?!

    At least we get a glimpse of Pia and Tim (Tim’s the last dude, right?) That few seconds was pretty good.

  • yaddabing

    Well…hopefully they’ll be picking up a few of these production elements and taking them to LA with them.

  • Vital

    I’m getting excited for this week.
    It should be interesting to see how some groups work out. I’m kind of interested to see how Brett Loewenstern and Brittany Mazur work together. I’m thinking that that might be neat to see, since even though they have their unique styles I think it could work pretty well. (Haven’t seen anything from Chrissy Feliciano that I remember so not sure what to say about her being in a group with them.)

  • Esqt

    X-Factorized! Uhuh-huh-huh… I can’t breathe!

  • lili_anne7

    wtf is this witchcraft?! I had to quote it twice and I still can’t picture it in my mind.

    That’s like Barney the Dinosaur and Led Zeppelin having a duet. James Durbin’s screeching is just awful.

    LMAO ….. To me they sound like two cats drowning lol.

  • s0x_prisoner

    Wait, so… next Tuesday’s episode is Top 12 Guys, Wednesday’s is Top 12 Girls, and Thursday’s is when we find the combined Top 12? I’m not a fan of this format. So, do 4 contestants make it to the Top 12 from each day, and then the judges pick 4 (or 5) wildcards like in Season 8?

    I guess that puts non-pimped contestants at a severe disadvantage. Hate when that happens.

    ^Good to know, thanks!

  • lili_anne7

    Hey I got to give credit to Tim Halperin. So far I haven’t been impressed with the guy, but he sounds good on this promo.

  • blissful

    Ditto on Tim Haplerin. I’m surprised at how nice he sounded in that short clip — I thought his voice was a lot thinner.

    I’m not sure I like the glitzy production values — I think it can distract from the voices. But I like the idea of duets.

    After watching mainly through clips the last few years, I’m actually looking forward to watching it live every week. The girls are running together a bit, but I’m liking the variety in the guys.

  • MalwareDie

    It was unfortunate that Sophia was paired with the train wreck, Ashley Sullivan.

    Yep, same here. Scary huh? I love myself some David Cook and Kris Allen, but I’m ready for AI to move on from a male winner that plays guitar–since this is all they have in common. LOL, well other than the fact they can sing. I was ready last season. Anyway…

  • Mary102

    I’m excited about this ep! A new twist to the format, and it’s a lot closer to the actual live performances they have to do in a few weeks! Now we get costumes and sets, so that’s cool!

    Scotty and Lauren surprises me. LOL. I wouldn’t be surprised if he makes top 24, but he seems like a one-trick pony, and I’m surprised they’d stick their favorite with him.

    James and Stefano, otoh, are two other more highly hyped people, so that’s a pairing that makes me go, oic, ptb ;-)

    ETA: Oh, and Chris and Casey together – two other favs paired, lol.

  • Junior

    Wait, do my eyes deceive me, or is there still no screentime for Paul?!

  • gangreen29

    Scotty and Lauren surprises me. LOL. I wouldn’t be surprised if he makes top 24, but he seems like a one-trick pony, and I’m surprised they’d stick their favorite with him.

    Supposedly they could choose their partners, but their song was drawn from a hat.

  • believeme

    It was unfortunate that Sophia was paired with the train wreck, Ashley Sullivan.

    That’s why she not in TOP 12 girls.

    I think that format just to ensure that someone like Alex Lambert doesn’t get boot.

  • believeme

    There is no Jacee there. Good that they put Chris Medina and Casey so people can see the different.

  • platoken

    he seems like a one-trick pony, and I’m surprised they’d stick their favorite with him.

    Scotty is another favorite, believe it or not. Just wait, they are setting him up for a redemption edit. Starts out strong with his auditions, falls a little in Hollywood, then gets back up before the top 24.

  • Dlynne

    Wait, do my eyes deceive me, or is there still no screentime for Paul?!

    I’m wondering the same thing. So strange.

  • Imkhemari

    Wait, do my eyes deceive me, or is there still no screentime for Paul?!

    Perhaps they decided to cut all screentime for Paul once the medical diagnoses of nodes on the vocal chords was made, on the assumption that he wouldn’t be available. (After all something like this seems to have happened to Keisha!)

    Maybe Paul then got a different medical opinion from a specialist in LA, allowing him to carry on …

    Or there’s some TPTB sob-storyline where Paul gets the Top 24 spot, resigns on medical grounds, and allows another guy in!

    Or perhaps the spoiler is wrong?

    Who knows?

  • emmuzka

    Casey Abrams and Chris Medina

    That’s got to be entertaining!

    It was unfortunate that Sophia was paired with the train wreck, Ashley Sullivan.

    do we know if the contestants were allowed to pair up themselves or if the pairs were drawn or ordered by producers? I have a feeling that there is some producer involvement in the pairings/groups…

    I hope so! It’s not even against Paul, and that I hope he is not seriously ill and that he has permanently damaged his vocal cords, because for a vocalist, that must be upsetting as hell and frustrating. Everybody wants the chance to get good exposure for their career, like being on Idol. I just prefer Stefano. Or Jimmie Allen. Or Alex Ryan. Or Deandre. Or someone that is NOT a safe HAC Alt/pop rock white guy. Geez…

  • Studio57

    After seeing Tim singing Something I had flashbacks of the last three winners. So Halperin isn’t a WGWG, he’s a WGWP(iano). UGHHHHHH

  • erl

    After watching that clip, here’s a thought for the producers – the final two are James D. and Tim H. – a (potentially) not as good rerun of Season 8.

    lol, Adam Lambert-Kris allen 2.0. In that case I would vote for Tim b/c James is just bad. His voice seriously makes me cringe.

  • Tess

    Take a peek at an incomplete list of contestant groupings, some with song spoilers.

    61 kids made it to Vegas and MJ has listed 30 or so on her spoiler list. I am sure the other 30 got to sing, too.

    I like the idea of the kids getting a chance to learn about and then show some stage presence..I will be upset if, when the semis start, anyone has the audacity to sit on a fucking stool with their head down, no eye contact, and strums a friggin guitar while singing in a monotone, off key voice. These kids better learn to make a connection with me, the audience.

  • Valentin432

    Naima-Jacob-Haley should be interesting.

  • lucy

    Scotty is another favorite, believe it or not. Just wait, they are setting him up for a redemption edit. Starts out strong with his auditions, falls a little in Hollywood, then gets back up before the top 24.

    Please, no. … Seriously, I just can’t imagine that he’s ready for this. And he has an older man’s voice. Don’t see how that’s going to sell with the very very young vibe he gives off, either. I have been fearing that this season they’d put all their efforts into pushing ahead people who just aren’t soup yet, and keeping Jacee plus this “redeem Scott” scenario makes me think my nightmare is coming true. … The Bieb was apparently ready to be industry groomed, but that doesn’t mean every young kid is.

  • lili_anne7

    Apparently Scotty as a lot of fans, so I think he’s a shoo-in for the Top 12. I personally don’t think he’s versatile enough for AI. i just hope he doesn’t make it to the end.

  • emmuzka

    61 kids made it to Vegas and MJ has listed 30 or so on her spoiler list. I am sure the other 30 got to sing, too.

    And I’m pretty sure that we won’t be seeing most of the “other” 30
    :( Why familiarize the audience with people that the producers won’t pick to the live rounds…

  • Tess

    If the 30 listed are the finalists I would be pretty surprised. I think people are reading way to much into MJs “partial list”.

    Nigel’s been tweeting again. Based on his tweets, the decision to shorten the Beatles episode was due to green mile drama, including JLo breaking down!

    @dizzyfeet Nigel Lythgoe
    Because of all the Drama in the #AmericanIdol green mile show we have been asked to cut the Beatles Vegas Challenge to 1 hour instead of 2!!

    @dizzyfeet Nigel Lythgoe
    #AmericanIdol on Wednesday is a 1 hour Beatle Challenge and then 1 hour of choosing the top 20 up until JLo breaks down and can’t continue!

  • Tess

    and then 1 hour of choosing the top 20 up until JLo breaks down and can’t continue!

    I just don’t think I can take 3 hours of re-hashing all the traumatic and dramatic back-stories….1 hr wednesday and then I’m out of AI until next week.

  • lili_anne7

    I’m with you. Why do they need 3 hrs to tell us who makes or not. I would much rather watch more of the performances in vegas then watch JLO and other contestants crying their eyes out.

    $#!%~! Vegas sounds great. Since they going cram-o-rama with green mile stuff, they better just show me one hour of excellent singing for that one hour of Vegas and leave all the “drama” for the green mile.

    How do you break the narrative of the green mile up into two episodes anyway? And they going to spoil the entire evening by ending with their “shock boot”? Way to ruin the feel-good vibe.

    Nigel is very good, but sometimes, he milks a cow until it bleeds. That ain’t pretty, Nigel.

  • tomr

    Pia…NOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Plastic!!!! Wonder if her personality is similar?

  • BootStar

    Do we know if the contestants paired themselves up or if the producers made the matches?

    I thought I read a comment on Joe’s Place that the contestants could choose their partners, but didn’t know what song they were singing at the point they made their partner choices.

    Thanks, J9BT. I know I’m not the only one who was wondering about that. I wonder if they got to choose the song from a very limited list (per usual on Idol) or if it was “assigned” by TPTB.

  • MaryS-NJ

    Per Joe’s Place Blog:

    Scotty + Lauren Alania sang “Hello – Goodbye” (Scotty only sang the first sentence)

    .

    Any bets on how much of that duet we actually get to hear?

  • http://mjsbigblog.com/luvadamlamberts-american-idol-tour-2009-washington-dc-re-cap.htm luvadamlambert

    I already get Casey and Chris confused enough :P

    They’re both overpimped

  • Kirsten

    Scotty + Lauren Alania sang “Hello – Goodbye” (Scotty only sang the first sentence)

    I have visions of Lauren pushing Scotty of the stage after the first line so that she could focus singing the song to Tyler. This becoming like a Carol Burnett Show skit in my mind.

    I have trouble believing this spoiler. Surely, the judges would have had something to say about a duet consisting fo one line? Surely Scotty would have insisted on more than one line after his solo crash-and-burn? I mean, Laurent would be totally up for it, but would Scotty commit career suicide like that? I hate to quote Randy, but “What is going on?”

  • lucy

    Oh, it wouldn’t have to be suicide. Given the apparent intensity of Lauren A’s personality and ambition, I wouldn’t be surprised if she was armed. “Hello. Goodbye. Or else.” …

    And I’m not getting the impression that Scott is fully prepared for the, shall we say, vehemence of competition he’s likely to meet on this show. Poor little baseball-playing high-school boy. I wonder whether he’s ever met a bunch of contemporaries before who are hell-bent on conquering show business? Doubt it.

    I bet two or three lines. Scotty’s one line, and two from Lauren. And the judges won’t be shown saying anything bad about it because they are two of Nigel’s favorites.
