Some of the songs could make for an interesting show. I’ve already written how unhappy I am about some of the song choices, now I’ll just wait and see how it goes.

I just can’t match any of the Queen songs with who would be able to do them justice, except for Elise…maybe.

Skylar could perform Fat Bottom Girls and Elise could probably sing Somebody to Love?

They will all be out of any “comfort zone”…But I agree, it will be an “interesting” show. I just hope it does not make us cringe!

Maybe Phillip could do something with Under Pressure. I read on the American Idol site, they only have thirteen songs to choose from.

Instead of doing Queen, whiched they have done before, I would have liked them to do Super Tramp. Similar, but different.

this should be interesting. Freddie Mercury was so good. Just to state the obvious.

There is not an artist that comes close to Freddie Mercury, although Adam Lambert really does his music justice.
As far as Phillip, he has not performed any Dave Matthews songs.

ok seriously.. Elise is sooooo good. If i could choose a persons voice to sound like it would be hers. I want to hear her without a band and screaming!! I don’t understand the judges. They are the worst. I know the show is fixed when they cut up Elise and praise Phil for a Usher cover. The fact is that if they had never herd of Dave Mathews they would have found his rendition terrible. He did nothing with it and it went nowhere. The only way any of his performances are tolerable is because in our heads we compare them to the genius that is Dave Mathews!!! Phil is so cute and sweet and deserves credit where credit is due. He can play an instrument and sing which is more than most but the idol team sets him up every week to rip off Dave. Stop with the sax and musical arrangements and please stop saying he is original.

My guess is Jessica doing rhapsody. That may be the death of her.

I think if Jessica did no rhapsody, she would be dead. The only one who could do that justice is Elise.

Good evening….

This is a catch phrase for me “Another One Bites The Dust.” Top 6 sounds good.

Merlek3 – I was one of those kids that ran home after school to catch Dark Shadows throwing my books down at the door and plopping on the floor. I was somewhat disappointed with the trailer because it seems like it’s leaning more toward the comedic flavor than what Dark Shadows was really about.

Am I the only one who thinks Jessica sounds a little rough down in her lower registry?

OK, the Joshua/Hollie playground is getting kinda boring.

Elise carried the rest of them through that medley.

Sigh, this whole not I’m gonna be thinking “I miss Colton…” He would have rocked a Queen song.

So the Fat Bottomed Girls opening sounded the best I’ve heard from a group medley, but “We Are the Champions” sounded the worst of any medley. I think I heard Elise go badley off key.

Angela

Skylar didn’t do too bad herself!!!!!

Jessica on Bohemian Rhapsody – of course she would try to tackle one of the most challenging songs ever written. Cause she wants to impress us. Well guess what Jess? The beauty of Rhapsody is the raw passion and subtelty. Although I move that this song should never be done on the show by anyone ever simply for the fact that you can’t cut the song down to 2 minutes. That song needs all 5 minutes to tell the story.
