I don’t know how many songs American Idol contestants will have to choose from this week, but there should be plenty of choices considering it has been 84 years since the first movies had singing in them.
There should be plenty of songs from every genre to select from. Scotty should be able to find a country song he likes.
The main thing the contestants don’t want to do this week is find a safe song. The judges will be quick to call them on it if they think a contestant has chosen a safe song.
Stefano Langone may be as Ryan Seacrest puts it…singing for his life this week. My little poll so far has 108 votes and not one voter has voted for Langone. Paul McDonald has not fared much better with only one vote.
The leader in the poll is James Durbin with 26 votes, with Haley Reinhart, Lauren Alaina Suddeth and Scotty McCreery next with 19 votes each.
Jacob Lusk is next with 17 followed by Casey Abrams with 7.
We should see James Durbin return to his rocker ways of weeks past. Song choice is huge as always for this week. Scotty seems to have a knack for picking the right song so far.
Jacob Lusk may be the best of the remaining singers, but it seems like the best singers doesn’t always wind up being the American Idol.
Haley Reinhart seems to be peaking at the right time, as the judges seem to be enamored with her growling style. I think she will sell a lot of records when she releases her album, assuming she is signed to a record deal.
Casey Abrams sang well, while playing the upright bass but is not that popular with the fans according to the very small sample poll, drawing only 7 votes of 108 for 6.48 percent of the votes. He is going to have to really blow the judges away this week or he could be in the bottom three.
Idol notes….Kelly Clarkson will be singing on Thursday night, who along with Carrie Underwood have been the most successful of the American Idols elected so far….Jason Castro a Season 7 contestant has announced his wife, Mandy Mayhall will be delivering a girl to the household in August.
Some American Idol alumni sang recently at the 2011 Reality Rocks Expo this weekend. Didi Benami and Michael Lynche from Season 9 were some of the former Idol contestants there to entertain the fans:
Chris Medina one of the last contestants to be eliminated from the Final 24 this season, is planning a benefit for his fiancee who was injured seriously in an automobile accident. It will be held Wednesday in Merrionette Park, Illinois. After the elimination of Medina, judge Jennifer Lopez broke down from the stress of having to deliver the bad news to Medina.
Speaking of Jennifer Lopez, her photo will be on the cover of People magazine’s Most Beautiful Cover.
