American Idol Top 3 Song Spoilers
(Jesus Christ, I am so over Twitter.)
Lovely. So Gokey is gonna out-Joe Cocker Taylor Hicks with this lame ass ballad which only reminds me of my first-ever trip to NYC as an 8-year-old in 1985. They had just debuted Estee Lauder’s Beautiful fragrance. This song appeared to be the entire crux of every ounce of their advertising and marketing, meaning you weren’t just inundated with Beautiful commercials featuring a bride dancing around in white to Cocker’s made-for-a-first-dance ballad, but they were playing it in every store. I remember getting off an escalator at Bloomingdales to see a women in white offering samples while another woman in orchestral black & white was playing You Are So Beautiful on a violin.
(I have a sick memory, okay?)
As of now, we know:
Kris Allen is singing Apologize.
Adam Lambert is singing One. Or Wicked Game.
Danny Gokey is singing Dance Little Sister. And maybe You Are So Beautiful.
Keep checking back for updates…
MJ got the spoilers for the contestants’ songs! Damn, no Travis-style Baby One More Time, but it still should be interesting.
And performance order, Gokeyoke goes first, Lambert goes last. HBD is the middle child. Because people suck.
Gokeyoke indeed performs You Are So Beautiful, Kris Allen does Kayne West’s Heartless (this could be really cool, which means he will get ZERO credit), Lambert will erase last week’s aural homicide of Aerosmith with Cryin’. (You know, early Aerosmith.)
