Major leaks from last Friday’s taped performance of top 12 guys

Naturally, Joe’s Place got all sorts of juicy details from last Friday’s pre-taped performance with the top 12 guys we’ll see Tuesday night. The site got not only the songs but the performance order.

If you want to know, here it is.

I won’t give away any specifics but here are teasers:

- Three of the 12 guys received standing ovations from the audience. Two you’d expect, one not so much.

- A very obvious person got the pimp spot.

- One person sang a song best known to be sung by a woman.

- At least one guy chose a sung he had already sung in Hollywood.

- At least four of the songs have been done on “American Idol” before,  one that was a signature song for a woman during season one. Two have been kind of done to death on this show and not good picks at all.

- One hard-rock act that I’m 100% certain has never been heard on “Idol” gets covered.

- Jennifer Lopez and Steven Tyler become tear-eyed over one performance.

- One person blames the fact he was “given” a song for his less-than-stellar performance.

- The new stage set up no longer has sorority girls swaying in the front.

- No instruments.

- Nigel Lythgoe made his presence known.

- Casey Abrams had just come from the hospital and appeared understandably tired.

- The band is not hidden.

- Tyler did not say anything that required “bleeping.”

- Randy, sitting in Simon Cowell’s seat, makes a Simon-esque reference.

The women perform tonight, to air Wednesday.

I think Scotty McReery has got to do something other than sing Josh Turner songs. I predict he’ll be one of the first to go.

Rodney, caught the interview, great job. It’s almost like you were on Entertainment Tonight.

Finally, “Idol” back on night where it belongs!
Happy March, everyone!

And, in real world, who’s going to win the meltdown competish between Ghadaffi/Khadaffi and Charlie Sheen? Both have been said to be living in their own universe – is this the same universe?

Looks like my least favorite 2 at this point, ie Lusk & “Screamy Mimi with bandana” are the judges very favorite ones! Oh, goody – guess they’ll find a way to keep them around forever. UGH!

Lusk is just too over the top and theatrical. His oversinging is going to grate on everyone.

Louis, couldn’t agree more. However, the former judges seemed to lap that up. You’d think Tyler would hate that crap. We’ll see.

I agree with Louis as well…one good performance doesn’t mean much and Lusk was loud and emotional. That doesn’t necessarily add up to good.

Duke..is that my old pal, Duke????

I’m surprised that audience only gave three standing Os. The audience is usually much more generous.
