“Still hoping for an Elise/Robert Plant or Jimmy Page duet in the finale.”

Hi Jonny that would be awesome! If she had done say “Tie Your Mother Down”, “I’m In Love With My Car”(would have worked great with her voice),”Dragon Attack”, or if she could have killed it then “We Will Rock You” she would still be there.

If Jimmie was really trying to help her he would have whacked her over the head with the Stevie Ray Vaughan song book every week while screaming “Learn It!, Love It!, Live It!” with R. Lee Ermey screaming at her like in Full Metal Jacket.

WARNING lots of adult really bad language!!! Just put in Elise’s name each time he screams private (whoever).

The singer looks like Freddy Mercury.


We were wondering if he added something to his teeth to make them stick out a little. To either resemble Freddie or sound like him.

Thanks, Ken. The Glory of Love to be on you tube late summer, early fall. Since it’s like making a little movie, I have lots to do before I get to the videotaping. I’m going to throw some syncopation into my version of this tune so it is slightly more jazzy.

My gosh, if you are talking about me, lol lol lol I would NEVER be on a show like this. This is a chat thread and pardon me for chatting.

Most music experts are know it alls. Just sayin' but I don't even watch the broadcasts with the gang here bec my pet duck is number one priority.

If you have a hobby, please share with the group cuz everyone's an expert at something, even you. I won't disparage you for being you. It's kind of ridiculous, at this point to disparage me for my enthusiasm for music and how it's a huge commitment. Those are decent values, ya think?

Hi, Jonny. Nothing else to say about how fantastic I am. lol My next you tube isn't until late summer and I appreciate the over 30 freepers who viewed my video but most of my views are straight from you tube. So, as usual, there are sour grapes about stupid stuff.

I like Skylar the best.

I'm just chatting, what a bunch of babies in here. Send them to the stools. lol

My post about being fantastic is pure sarcasm. Rejection here or anywhere means nothing. It comes with the territory. If I'm not the know it all in question, then my best regards to the know it all in question. :)

I'm just livening up the thread a little bit cuz we won't be bk here until next Wednesday after all.

‘American Idol’: Little Steven to guest-mentor

http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/05/01/american-idol-steven-van-zandt/

It’s British Week on American Idol this week. And while you can expect the remaining five finalists to be singing songs made famous by artists from across the pond, they’ll be mentored by a musician who is decidedly all-American. EW has learned that Steven Van Zandt, the guitarist from Bruce Springsteen’s E Street Band, will be the guest mentor on Idol tomorrow. Little Steven, as he is affectionately known, will be lending Jimmy Iovine a hand as the Idol mentor coaches the kids on English rock and pop on the May 2 performance show (Fox 8 p.m.).

Little Steven has a relationship with Jimmy that goes back to the 70’s when the Interscope chairmen was a recording engineer on Springsteen’s early recordings. As far as Idol goes, the guitarist and his wife, Maureen, are unabashed fans. When two Idol alums — season 8 winner, Kris Allen, and season 7 alum, Michael Johns — attended the Springsteen concert in Los Angeles on Friday, she tweeted a photo with the caption, “Handsome devils waiting for Bruce.”

Maureen spilled the beans earlier that same day when she tweeted a photo of Little Steven sitting at a piano with some musicians. When fans inquired about the photo, Maureen revealed it was an Idol mentoring session. “He loves to help young people,” Maureen said of Little Steven’s afternoon working with the Idols, “So he had fun.”

‘American Idol’ Top 5 take on British Week while Coldplay and Carrie Underwood perform

http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethebox/2012/04/american-idol-top-5-take-on-british-week-while-coldplay-and-carrie-underwood-perform.html

The “American Idol” Top 5 will take us on a (metaphorical) trip across the pond when they tackle the songs of U.K. artists during British Week. Hollie Cavanagh, Skylar Laine, Joshua Ledet, Phillip Phillips and Jessica Sanchez will sing during Wednesday, May 2nd’s British music-themed performance show.

The following night, Coldplay and Carrie Underwood will perform during the results show. It’ll be Coldplay’s first visit to the “Idol” stage, where they’ll play a song from their latest album, “Mylo Xyloto.” Underwood of course is no stranger to “Idol,” having won Season 4 in 2005.

Ken, I see someone is going to do Dusty Springfield’s You Don’t Have To Say You Love Me. How many calls to Hollie did you make? ;)

"River Deep Mountain High" is a huge risk. Pia Toscano was voted off with it last year. People don't like it.

Whoever sings it tonight will be in serious jeopardy tomorrow, unless his name is Phillip Phillips.

LOL...She must have been channelling me...it's gonna be a very good song for her...unless, somehow, they screw withe arrangement..Guess I'll have to buy Holly's first CD..I can put it alongside my other AI "treasures"..those from Carmen Rasmussen and Haley Scarnato..

Another great song choice for Holly, IMHO would be Laura Branagan's "Gloria"...listen to it on Youtube.it'd be perfect for HC

You’re right that would be a good one for P2.

We don’t really know who is doing what. I’ll take a guess. I’m not real comfortable with some of these guesses! LOL

60’s:
Ain’t Too Proud To Beg - The Temptations -— Joshua
The Letter - The Box Tops —— Phillips
Proud Mary - Ike & Tina Turner -—— Skylar
Fortunate Son - Credence Clearwater Revival -— Hollie
River Deep, Mountain High - Ike & Tina Turner —— Jessica

British Pop:
To Love Somebody - The Bee Gees -— Skylar
Time of the Season - The Zombies -— Phillips
Bleeding Love - Leona Lewis —— Jessica
You Are So Beautiful - Joe Cocker —— Joshua
You Don’t Have To Love Me - Dusty Springfield -— Hollie

Duet/Trio:
Higher and Higher - Jackie Wilson
You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feeling - The Righteous Brothers

Anyone else?

Anyone else?

Since I'm an "It," in my case it should be "Anything else?"...but here are my guesses:

60’s:

Ain’t Too Proud To Beg - The Temptations -— Joshua Ledet
The Letter - The Box Tops —— Phillip Phillips
Proud Mary - Ike & Tina Turner -—— Jessica Sanchez
Fortunate Son - Credence Clearwater Revival -— Skylar Laine
River Deep, Mountain High - Ike & Tina Turner —— Hollie Cavanagh


British Pop:

To Love Somebody - The Bee Gees -— Joshua Ledet
Time of the Season - The Zombies -— Phillip Phillips
Bleeding Love - Leona Lewis —— Jessica Sanchez
You Are So Beautiful - Joe Cocker —— Skylar Laine
You Don’t Have To Love Me - Dusty Springfield -— Hollie Cavanagh


If Hollie sings "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me" she will knock it out of the park. Jessica will kill "Bleeding Love" but the AI FReepers will hate it, and it will get a "meh" or worse from this thread's host. Skylar will destroy "Fortunate Son" (in a good way!) if she sings it. "Ain't Too Proud To Beg" is an unfortunate choice for Joshua or for anybody else.

Thanks for not reading this!
