American Idol Roundtable – Top 9 Week Pre-Show Tuesday, April 1, 2008Posted by Jerkwheat in American Idol, jerkwheat, singing?, Television, You know how I know you're gay?.
Last week we said goodbye to Chikeze, even though he certainly didn’t deserve it. But, I think we all knew he was gonna be gone in the coming weeks anyway, so what does it really matter? Once again, Kristy Lee should be our likely candidate for departure, but with it being Dolly Parton Week (?!?!) that may not be as likely as we wish. The usual gang joins me in our weekly pre-show discussion…after the jump
Sweet mother of God, it is DOLLY PARTON WEEK. Famous Titties for $1000!
Is KLC going to be singing “9 to 5”? Or has Dolly written a song about
a young child with cancer and a dead puppy who the terrorists have
killed? These are the questions I want answered.
Can we get Archuletta singing “I Will Always Love You”? or will Syesha
fall into the Whitney trap?
And let me go on record saying that if Carly or Brooke don’t straight
up OWN “Jolene” this week, this whole show has been for naught. And if
David Cook plays the White Stripes version of him, I’m signing him up
for Nickelback b/c he’ll have cemented his place on Unoriginal Bastard
Can we get a duet on “Islands in the Stream”?
Someone should absolutely take on Dolly’s cover of “Shine” from a few
years back as well. I’m looking at you
I’m really curious as to how this week is going to go down – is it all
Dolly songs? is it “influences”?
I think this week will be kind to the big voiced ballad asingers and Cook, Castro and Johns will struggle.
I am on my cell right now (ED NOTE* – JB is really SAS, phoning it in via Blackberry…that’s dedication homes), but Dolly did a whole disc of Americana
about two years ago that KLC may pick from. And I concur – no Jolene,
I know Dolly has had a big influence over music. I know she has large tits. I also know that I will hate this week. I like probably 3 DP songs. Maybe more than that if she wrote for others. I would love for Carly to do “Jolene.” I don’t think Brooke could do that song really. Jerk, you are right on with the Cook pick and he won’t give any credit for who’s version he did. Other wise I have no real reads into this weeks show. I could see this being a great week for KLC because country “seems” to be in her wheelhouse. I wish this was Willie Nelson week. I really have no thoughts on who’s going home or not. I will just have to watch the show.
Looks like many a blogger has picked up on the possibility of Cook doing the White Stripes version of “Jolene” and dear God I hope that doesn’t happen. I’d really like to hear Carly give it a go. Other than that, I really don’t have a clue who is gonna sing what and we’ve got no clear cut pre-show elimination favorite. Guess we’re gonna have to pay attention to the show…
