American Idol Top 3 Song Spoilers

May 12, 2009

MJ just posted a new song spoiler for tonight, courtesy from some Twitter account of a Jordin Sparks backup singer.

(Jesus Christ, I am so over Twitter.)

Danny singing “you are so beautiful”!! from TwitterFon

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.)

    I’m sure there will be more ADAM voters then Evangelical voters.

    If that’s the case These Boring Extremests Should get a Life.

      I hope you aren’t Evangelical.

    Most of Danny’s evangelical voters hate Adam with a passion and would race en masse to Kris if Danny were to be voted off. So I agree that Adam’s chances of beating Kris one on one are slim to none.

    I’m really wondering if Gokey is going to do awful under the pressure of doing two songs. Seeing as he screwed up both songs last week, I don’t think this week is going to be much different. And yet, Kris is probably going to go home. *sigh*

    Oh, and off-topic, but did you hear this? “I had just recieved a phone call from Mancow, the number one radio station in the nation, requesting to interview Danny. We worked it out with the producer of Idol & made it happen. Pastor Steve Munsey told Mancow that Danny wouldn’t go on the show unless he mentioned Faith Builders & Jeff Pruitt at least two times in the interview. Pretty cool!” (from the FBIM blog)

      Thanks for the tip, Ema!

      Oh, that Pastor Rolex is at it again.

    How many heavenward glances are we going to get from Danny tonight? I think I just came up with a new drinking game along the lines of “Hi Bob”. Drink every time Danny looks to the heavens. You’ll be bombed by the time he’s done and won’t even care about Kara’s annoying commentary.

    I predict Danny may turn on the waterworks tonight. He has everything to gain and nothing to lose.

      SJF, I wonder if I should play this game tonight or save it for next week, assuming he will make the finals because TBTB said it is so.

      Funny thing is, if either Lambert or Gokey magically get eliminated tonight, HBD could conceivably win it all. He would absorb all the votes of those who would vote for Gokey, but he would also take all those from the people voting for Lambert.

      It’s a theory, but I think it holds up.

        If Lambert were to be eliminated, he’s got a shot. But Gokey going bye bye isn’t quite enough. That’s going to happen, though, if Kris’s fans (including me) have anything to say about it. Kris making it to the final 2 is satisfaction enough.

    Oh, God. It was on this very blog. Feel free to laugh.

      Whoa. Coretta Scott Mercado was at the rehearsal and Tweeted about artistry?

      (Gotta run to the bathroom before I piss myself.)

    There is much speculation at MJ in the comments that Kris is doing acoustic version Of Britney’s “Hit me Baby one More Time.”

    Also Sy tweeted that the second contestant in rehearsal showed “true artistry”….well, we know who’s NOT going second (if that’s the true performance order).

      That would be awesome, because he would be doing THIS arrangement by one of my favorite bands.

      Scottish group Travis did this at a radio show years ago and it became a cult hit of sorts. I absolutely love it, and the audience won’t be familiar with it, meaning…they could declare him as genius and send Gokey home.

        Why have I never heard that? AWESOME. HBD better give credit.That suits him perfectly. I’m excited now! The door is cracking open ever so slightly and a foot is poised behind Gokey’s enormous ass.

    Also! I can’t believe you left out the best part of that twit’s tweet:

    “Does anyone who know who should win idle I’m here at there rehersal,Not sure kidzzzz I need more!!!”

    Fucking hell. What language is this?!? The spelling, the syntax, the grammar… I honestly have absolutely no idea what this even means. Goddamn twitter.

    FWIW, I had heard somewhere that Kris’s own choice is “Yellow” by Coldplay. Can’t remember where.

    “Danny singing “you are so beautiful”!!

    Ugh. Is it possible to vomit while falling asleep from sheer boredom? Gross. Hope he brings the harp.

    Am I evil for being really sad the Phil Collins spoiler isn’t true? Because what an awesomely Hokey shitfest that would have been.
