What do you mean I have to watch American Idol tonight?
So now they go ahead and put it back on Tuesday night? I was not ready for this. Can’t we just skip to tomorrow evening’s American Idol finale so we can see the fallen FUN contestants sing & whoop it up on the Nokia stage?
MJ has an ongoing list of rumors and what-not about the finale. What would we do without MJ? Also: Don’t you love the fact Bruce Springsteen would never be caught anywhere near this show? Who cares if Little Stevie’s wife loves it? And Clarence Clemmons playing sax with Lady Gaga doesn’t count. As much as I would love to hear the right contestant do a little Springsteen (If I remember correctly, Taylor Hicks is the only one to perform Springsteen on the show), would I want to hear Bruce bastardized? I am surprised U2 is playing the finale, especially after the complete and utter destruction of Beautiful Day last year, but then again, Bono needs money to save Africa. AND help promote Spiderman: Turn Off The Dark, which still may be the biggest disaster in Broadway history.
Let’s also laugh at Lauren Alaina doing a rejected Kristy Lee Cook song chosen by Carrie Underwood called Like My Mother Does. I hope Kellie Pickler is her stylist so this can all be so very right. Lauren Alaina. Singing a song about HER MOTHER. I hope its all about dressing like her, getting her nails done like her, shaking the booty like her, dying her hair the same. Like My Mother Does. I want to believe all of this is because Idol knows how much we want to laugh at Kristi Suddeth, the penultimate stage mommy.
David Cook will perform the S10 boot song “Don’t You (Forget About me)” on the Idol final tonight.
Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina will perform their first singles on Tuesday’s final. Scotty’s song is called ‘Love You This Big’ and Lauren’s is a Kristy Lee Cook cover titled “Like My Mother Does.” Country songwriter, Tim Nichols, who wrote Tim McGraw’s country hit, “Live Like You Were Dying,” tweeted that Scotty recorded one of his songs. There’s no confirmation that the song is Scotty’s single.
Carrie Underwood and George Strait chose a song for Lauren and Scotty (respectively) to sing on Tuesday night’s final. Carrie posted on her fan club message board that it was a song she wanted to do on the show, but wasn’t able for one reason or another.
Scotty and Lauren’s 3rd song will be a “favorite performance” of their choosing from the past season.
According to her parents, Haley Reinhart will sing an original song on the finale. The tune will be released to iTunes, and if it’s successful, an album will follow.
