As if the American Idol season couldn’t get any weirder the judges have chosen their songs for the remaining three contestants and it is not at all what I was expecting.
First I figured Simon would choose for Crystal but no, he gave Lee Dewyze “Hallelujah”. Are you freaking kidding me? Tim Urban sang this weeks ago and not only that, Jason Castro had his “moment” with that song. What is Cowell’s problem? Does he want his last season on the show to go down as the absolute worst, because it is. Lee is a rocker and he gives him this bs??? Why didn’t he choose some Creed or Rob Thomas or anything? I’m flabbergasted and don’t even know what to say. Obviously Cowell is pulling for someone other than Lee.
Kara and Randy teamed up for Casey James and chose “Daughters” by John Mayer. Another shock for me because this is so far away from his genre it’s laughable. How do they expect him to take a song that’s not even that good to begin with and change it into his own style? You can’t do it with that song. Another what are they thinking moment for me. They want him to use more range so choose Journey or Seger. Come on! I’m blown away at the stupidity of this.
Ellen, who has no musical experience whatsoever, actually picked the best song. She chose “Maybe I’m Amazed” by Paul McCartney and I think Crystal will blow this one up. It has power and emotion and she will do it justice. We may as well go on and crown her the winner.
What do you think of the song choices for this week?
