    for all the talk about being current, they just keeping going back in time.

    this is the week where they start singing two songs each right??

  • Amanda P.

    OK, I love the show but the themes are so lame this year. So, we are going to have Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and Sammy Davis Jr. songs? Am I missing a Rat? Did Joey Bishop have a hit song in the 60’s? I wonder if Danny and Matt will be fighting over “The Candy Man” or “That’s Amore”. Or, maybe they meant “Brat Pack” songs in which case I would love to hear Kris sing “St.Elmo’s Fire”.

    disco-geezer to vegas-sleazer…will next week’s mentor be the relevant revenant peter lawford in a seance with the stars? you get the feeling simon and paula et al are intentionally riding the idol trainwreck off the rails to make their grand exits next year?

  • AJ

    I guess after Anoop’s Usher impression and Matt’s hilarious attempt at Coldplay, Idol’s decided they are done with contemporary music for the year.
