American Idol 3/4-3/6 Top 16

Here's some scoop to start things off:


Before Idol, David Hernandez Was a Nude Dancer

March 4, 2008

A former job in the life of American Idol finalist David Hernandez may have come back to haunt him, now that the manager of a male strip club in Phoenix says that the 24-year-old performed in the buff at the establishment for three years, ending in September 2007.

“He had the look and the type that people like, so he made pretty good money here,” Gordy Bryan, manager of Dick’s Cabaret, an establishment for men, tells the Associated Press.

What Hernandez’s past may mean to his future on Idol remains to be seen. In 2003, finalist Frenchie Davis was removed from the running once it was revealed her picture appeared on an adult Web site — though last year Antonella Barba stayed in the race, despite her racy photos on the Internet.

A spokeswoman for FOX did not return calls seeking comment, AP reports.

Hernandez’s first Idol audition took place in San Diego, Calif., on July 30, 2007 — precisely two months before he left Dick’s Cabaret, according to Bryan.

As of Tuesday morning, the singer was slated to perform with the other male contestants on Tuesday night’s program.

They better not kick him off.

Anyways, I think Luke Menard goes home for sure. Not sure who the last man out is.

Luke's a goner. She doesn't stand a chance. I'll make an early guess that the stoner goes with him.

For the ladies, let's go with Britney and the cage fighter.

My wife has been saying the whole time that he was unsuccessfully trying to play it straight.

das - who's the stoner you are referring to?

Luke's time is definitely up this week.

The "stoner" would be Jason Castro, but there's no chance of him leaving this early after his strong first week performance ("What a Day for a Daydream", originally by The Lovin' Spoonful).

Speaking of which, do you know what the name "Lovin's Spoonful" is referring to? It's the same thing as what 10cc is referring to.

My early prediction... David Hernandez will be disqualified, and Luke Menard will be the only male voted off.

Looking forward to hearing some 80's tunes get butchered tonight. Any early word on the individual song choices?

Haha, check out AOL trying to get in on the action by creating a non-story about "racy" pics of Ramiele.

These are regular pics of a fully dressed girl having fun with her friends (no alchohol, no nudity, no gestures). Just a bra showing through her clothes and her doing a breakdance move.

What's AOL gonna do next? Get some beach photos of contestants and say they're "pornographic"?

The video was "Posted Feb 29th 2008 11:00AM by Tonka D., Attending Videologist"

WTF is a videologist and what is she attending? Like it's an academic/scientific position or something.

Oh man If that's right, then this promises to be a craptacular 2 nights (on top of the wonderful discomfort that will surround David H's gay stripper expose). I can see some clear matchups with these songs:
Spoiler:
David Archuletta seems a good match for #1. Though it would be funny if he tackled #16, with his gaspy wheezy vocal style (and needless to say, he'll completely miss the creepy aspect of the song and do it as a straight love ballad). Amanda and Kim Carnes seems a natural fit (though I'm still holding out hope for Bonnie Tyler), but I could see her doing Turner or Mellencamp too. Carly wouldn't dare do another Heart song, would she? And one of the divas (Syesha or Asia'h) has to try to butcher one of Whitney's cheesiest songs. Chikezie has to be #10. And it would be hilarious if David H did the theme song of "American Gigilo", but I doubt he would. And if someone picks #15 they deserve to be voted off - one of the worst songs of the decade. And if a "rocker" picks it, may the rock gods smite them down right on stage.

Spoiler:
1-Everytime you go away - This seems like the sort of song that will be really ironic and funny if the person ends up going home on Thursday.

2-what about love - I will laugh if this is Carly, because she's already done Heart twice (once in Hollywood, once last week).

9-bette davis eyes - I'm going to guess this is Amanda.

10-celebration - Oh for the love of god.

15-we built this city - Haha, who the hell picked this?
And the tough part is trying to imagine what Chikeizie would do out of that bunch... I sincerely hope for his sake it's not #10.

Face it ... you KNOW Chikeze's doing #10! And thinking about, Danny must be doing #3 - and doing an over-the-top flamboyant version too.

I'd still be surprised if these are the real songs. As crappy as AI is, this is just too crappy. Almost as if AI let VFTW pick all the songs, and they're intentionally sabotaging it. Especially #15. I guess we'll see in a few hours though.

Further spoilers all seem to think David A's doing #6. Which means I better go light on dinner, because that sounds like it'll make me

Let's face it ... Danny is comedy gold ... period! Don't forget his punk-rock background. How about Danny and song #7
