American Idol Top 9, March 31 / April 1, "iTunes Week"

Who do you think will be voted off this week?

And the rumors are that there will be no mentor this week but rather the singers get to pick a song off of the iTunes Top 100 list, which pretty much this will be a free-for-all week.

And Danny Gokey's grandfather just died.

Adam Lambert, even though most of you hate him, was by far by favorite last week. I'm looking forward to seeing what he does this week.

Megan Joy needs to go. Not feeling her sound and the Tattoo's continue to bug the shit out of me.

Looks like this weeks episode is only 80 minutes!!! They had trouble doing 10 singers in 120 minutes. They can probably get all the singers in if shut Kara up!

It's an 85 minute show, starting at 7:00 pm CDT. At 8:25 CDT a new show called Osbournes: Reloaded starts.

8:25 PM . Tuesday, March 31

Osbournes: Reloaded
35 mins.

Ozzy, Sharon, Jack and Kelly star in a variety show that features them performing comedy, interacting with the audience and appearing in recurring segments outside the studio. In the opener, a blindfolded audience member is asked to kiss a stranger, and Kelly and Ozzy work at a fast-food drive-thru in a segment called "Osbourne in the USA."
From the preview I saw, the blindfolded man appears to have two good looking, young women in front of him and presumably has to guess which one he is kissing while blindfolded. But of course they pull the 'ol switcheroo... bringing in this 80 or 90 year woman.

I voted for Megan, but Scott is my second choice. IMO, they're the two weak links and as boring and thin as Scott's voice was last week, Megan Joy was just a whole different level of awful. It's like she's trying so hard to evoke Amy Winehouse or Duffy that she's lost any tone that was once pleasant.

Another Adam hater here, but I think he's got a few weeks of life left in him. Last week's performance was certainly his best, but was still song way too high for his voice.

Re: American Idol Top 9, March 31 / April 1, "iTunes Week"

iTunes Top 100 should be interesting. Here's a current list. A lot of it is rap, so I'm assuming those songs are out. I imagine blood will be shed among the guys fighting over "I'm Yours". "Don't Stop Believing" and the songs by White Tie Affair, The Fray, Plain White T's, Jesse McCartney and Shinedown would be possible choices for the guys. Alison has some good picks in there - I could see her doing a good take on Pink's "So What" or "Sober". Lil Rounds will probably go the safe route after two weeks of the judges giving her hell and go with one of the Beyonce songs.

Sucks for Anoop if he loses the coin toss for "Jai Ho".

They keep telling Kris he has this Jason Mraz vibe about him. I wondering if he will sing him this week considering Jason has a song in the top 100.

Please let that no talent, feet stuck on the floor, arm swinging retard aka Megan get kicked off.

I can't believe she made the top 100 let alone the top 10.

There is also rumor that selections may not "just" be limited to current top 100 downloads, but "I-tunes #1 downloads". Still a bit vague, so we'll see.

Can't wait to FF through Kris Allen's "I'm Yours"....ugh, you know it's gonna happen. Matt, on the other hand, could do an awesome piano deconstruction of "Sex on Fire."

I predict a save this week. Scott or Megan should go, but it will be another who the judges will rightly save, probably Lil, Matt or Allison.

Simon was right, I like Anoop, but that was terrible. Unfortunately, I don't think Anoop will ever make the right choices, he just has bad taste and is a decade or two too late to hit.

Scott looks like The Leader w/ that hair cut... And the judge's advice for the singers this year is beyond terrible, and Kara is the worst. She is horrible and doesnt have the crazy factor that Paula has going for her.

Adam was horrible. Figures the judges blew smoke up his ass and said how great he was. I thought Matt and Lil were both terrific - I can't believe the judges criticized them.

It sounded like Kris called the song "Anal Sunshine"

It was epic camaro hair.

Anoop's song choice was awful.

There are several more people on the show deserving of the reaming that Matt received. Like Scott. His voice is weak.

Lil' seems worse every week. Her choices suck and she seems to over-sing/shout more as the weeks go by.

Adam more than made up for his lack of shrieking during last week's show. My wife liked it. I thought it was obnoxious.

Megan finally had a bad wardrobe choice.

Danny is a douche. And he sounds the same every week.

Allison sucks, too. Was her hair supposed to take attention away from her fugly face?

Re: American Idol Top 9, March 31 / April 1, "iTunes Week"

If the selections were intended to be "current," I think we had a huge failure of concept this week. Why not just call it, "Sing Whatever The Hell You Like Week." Even if they tried to tie it into a generic popular downloads theme, the only songs that would fit under that description would be Anoop's, Danny's, and Matt's, since they've been released in the last five years. But it happens every time they try to get the contestants to do something current. Someone will find a loophole and drag out something old, like last year when someone pulled out a Beatles song because it was #1 on the catalog albums chart.

Yeah, WTF? When I heard iTunes downloads, crazy me, I just assumed current music. And all we heard was one ancient song after another. Except for Rascal Flatts and Usher.

I thought Adam was very good again this week.

Starting to like Allison less and less each week.

Think Matt most commercial of the group.
