next week is going to be so funny…i’m glad mariah has stamped her feet and demanded that if she appears, it has to be her theme week. this should sort the wheat from the chaff. if you think mariah oversings, fine, you don’t need to oversing to cover one of her songs. i’ve covered some of mariah’s less shrieky tracks before.
daniel and eoghan in particular will be stuffed, and since the group of finalists have already recorded ‘hero’ simon can’t rescue nauseating eoghan by letting him sing that cheesefest. oh shit, daniel is bound to sing ‘one sweet day’ isn’t he?
american idol’s mariah theme, i seem to remember, unendeared some of the snottier contestants to the voting public, as they acted as if mariah’s songs were beneath them. diana needs to watch her facial expressions – if she goes stroppy teenager she’s gone.
this week the nice thing is some of these suggestions might actually make it.
jls – always be my baby
still loving jls, i hope it’s not true that they can’t win. they should sing ‘one sweet day’ but you know tragedy exploitation expert daniel will wangle that one.
alexandra – we belong together
thank god she already sang ‘i’ll be there’. if they make her sing ‘without you’ instead of this i’ll be really pissed off.
rachel – vision of love
next week is make or break for rachel. it’s about time she got the best ‘singer’s song’ as simon likes to call them.
laura – emotions
it’ll either be really good or really bad. i don’t think she should attempt a ballad.
ruth – can’t let go
ruth needs to get back to what she does best.
diana – dreamlover
even diana can’t bend the rules on an artist theme week. i’m sure dreamlover is whimsical enough…
daniel – one sweet day
yuck…just yuck. but you know it’ll happen.
eoghan – anytime you need a friend
i’d rather the vile, tonedeaf little shit was gone and sang nothing at all.
