American Idol -- Top 4 "Tonight's Theme: Music of Barry Gibb" --05/08/07 and 05/09/07

The Top 4 finalists (Melinda Doolittle, LaKisha Jones, Blake Lewis and Jordin Sparks) compete head-to-head again on Tuesday, May 8 (8:00-9:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed). Barry Gibb will mentor the contestants as they prepare to sing songs he made famous with the Bee Gees.

Tune in the following night to see Gibb perform, and find out who receives enough votes to stay in the competition and who must go home on the live results show Wednesday, May 9 (9:00-10:00 PM ET live/PT tape-delayed) on FOX.

Please make sure to put spoiler tags on any discussion involving dialidol.com when posting prior to the airing of the results show. Once the results show has aired, spoiler tags are not needed.

My prediction: Blake will burp the words to "Stayin' Alive". DVDTalkers will climb all over themselves to praise the performance, because it is "original".

I think Jordin should take on "Emotion" That would be a perfect song for her, especially since it was recently covered by Destiny's Child.

Yes, he would have.

Hopefully Blake won't redo his "How Deep is Your Love" from Hollywood week, and will try something new (even is it's burping a song). It's now 2 songs each, right? Bee Gees should be a good fit for everyone - some white funk for Blake, and power ballads for the divas. I think everyone does well in their own way. Lakisha will probably go home, not because she'll suck, but she's reached the point where her fan base won't take her any further.

Lakisha should have gone last week. She'll be gone this week for sure.
Blake will make it to the final being the only guy left. He will get Phil's and Chris's votes now.

Anyone know what songs they will be singing ?

Before he starts the burb-boxing, he will have to vocally pretend that he's opening the fridge, taking out a soda, opening the soda can, and finally taking a big drink. Blake will make it into the finals due to overwhelming votes from fans of Police Academy's Michael Winslow.

Oh, and one of the girls might be able to do "Woman In Love" by Barbara Streisand since it's Gibb related.

So this covers early BeeGees too? Not just the SNF disco crap?

What we might be seeing tonight:

http://www.idolator.com/search/ameri...hts-258448.php

Spoiler:


Jordin: "To Love Somebody," "Woman in Love"
Melinda: "Love You Inside Out," "How Can You Mend a Broken Heart"
Blake: "You Should Be Dancing" (allegedly with beatboxing), "This Is Where I Came In"
LaKisha: "Run To Me," "Stayin' Alive"

We're completely unsurprised by LaKisha's pick of "Stayin' Alive"--her song choices seem to be dictated equally by past Idol winners and Lite-FM programmers. But we're more surprised that no one picked "Tragedy"--surely that song would have been great for a beatboxing middle eight.

The SNF disco crap was great stuff! What happened to all the great soundtracks? They just don't make them like they used to.

Get ready to hear a lot of voices cracking tonight if it's just Bee Gee songs.

I voted for LaKisha, too. I would like a Jordin/Blake final. I wish nobody was singing "Stayin Alive." You KNOW Simon won't like it. It's going to come off as karaoke and all that.

Goodbye Lakisha if those are indeed her song choices

For Jordin those song choices are quite solid.....Hopefully she can pull them off

I have it on good authority (last week's thread) that he will actually arm-pit fart the beats tonight.

Blake was kinda painful for me to listen to - Jordin is really becoming the one to beat.
