Wow...life anthem week is really not a lot of fun. At least on its face. Hopefully our idol wannabes will do something good for us so we don't want to slit our wrists and bleed out into the floor.
Here are some preshow thoughts:
1. Jason Castro's version of "Somewhere Over the Rainbow." One reader of idolbloglive.com suggested that Jason would pull out this version:
This is a tough call. After K. McPhee did such and incredible version of the song during season 5 and since this is one of Simon's favorite songs, I'm not sure this a great move on Jason's part. But at least he will probably do this version and he should be towards the end of the line up which may save him.
2. David Cook's choice should be good entertainment and he should rock it out. Can't embed this clip but check it out at this link:
3. Little David has made a good choice. We expect to see him at the piano for this song.
4. Syesha, Syesha, why, why, why. Syesha must you INSIST on violating EVERY Idol rule there is? This week's violation: No songs from past idols please.
