THIS is AMERican Idol! Cue the music!
Here we go, y'all! We're about to hit our Top 3 performers. Lil David, Syesha, and Rocker David. The song choices that we spoiled via IdolBlogLive are good, bad, and WTF! Without further adu, here come the judges picks!
First up, Lil David. Paula Abdul has picked Billy Joel's "So It Goes" for young David. I posted a youtube clip earlier as a preview for those of you who might not be familiar with this ditty. Sounds like a good vehicle for Lil David's talents. I'm crossing my fingers that Lil Bit won't be affected by this week's Daddygate chaos. Here we go . . . he looks cute . . . OMG! The first acapella of the season. FINALLY, I have been wanting him to go acapella all season long, and he pulls it off quite nicely. Overall, Lil David was pitch perfect on this song. Excellent start for the show, and proof that Lil David is continuing the good voice he's been in the last 2 weeks.
Randy thinks that it was dope, yo! Paula thinks it was the perfect song for his voice. Simon thinks it was predictable, but sung well . . . A side note here: For as long as the judges have been allowed to pick songs individually for the contestants, Simon ALWAYS plays down the other two and ALWAYS pimps out his choice . . . we'll see if the pattern continues.
