Bits and Pieces

From around the ‘net and this-here blog:

Lately, Randy Jackson has been on the talk show circuit, singing the praises of Chris Daughtry and talking up the possibility of an all-boy final three.

However, Simon Cowell made the rounds of the morning news shows.  He said that he believes Taylor Hicks and Chris Daughtry will be Final 2, but “don’t count Katharine [McPhee] out.”  ETA:  Simon also said pretty much the same thing on Extra tonight. —report found on twop and idolforums

In an interview with a Birmingham station this morning, Taylor Hicks’s dad said that the contestants will be restricted to AUTHENTIC Elvis songs – meaning no Elvis covers of other peoples’ materials, i.e. “My Way” or “I Got a Woman.” — from the comments section, thank you emily

On Fox Reality’s American Idol Extra,  the AI stylist may have dropped a hint about one of Taylor Hicks’s Elvis songs. When Mikaylah Gordon asked the stylist about Taylor’s wardrobe for “Play that Funky Music”,  the stylist finished by saying, “Pay attention to the shoes this week. That’s all I am going to say about that.” — from the comments section, thank you cahaba lily
