More Gossip

I have no more actual song spoilers for the girls  tonight, but I do have a little gossip about last night’s taping.

Apparently, the judges thought the girls picked bad songs, overall.    The judges weren’t happy with too many of the performances.   Even the favorites weren’t praised  very highly.   Many of the song selections were country tunes.

ETA:   Here’s a list of songs for the girls that was originally posted at Idolonfox.   It’s made its way to Idol Forums and Survivor Sucks. And now my blog…   Thanks to the reader who  emailed the list to me.  

Supposedly, this list came from somebody’s friend who was at the taping:

ETAA:   Hi West Coasters?   These Spoilers?   Are Fake.   I’m adding the real selections in Red.   Song Spoilers found on message boards are often wrong.
