    I said all along that Adam was brought on because he needed the promotion. I wouldn't go so far as to call him a failure, though. He is just at a very critical point in his career and promotion like this can make or break someone's career! Too bad VFTW seems to think he has no talent, that is quite shocking. Most people I know will not deny his talent even if it isn't their cup of tea.

    Do we know the theme yet, was it really going to be Elvis?

    I certainly hope so, are all my Elvis references were for nothing! I've read a couple of articles that the contestants went to Las Vegas to see the Elvis show, I assumed it was because Mr. Presley was the theme for this week!

    I heard that someone was twittering that and then it was proven to all be fake. Maybe the tweeter was fake but getting his information from these articles which were accurate and not the other way around. I don't want an Elvis week, I feel it is going to be a lot of horrible impersonations and Simon wont be happy.

    ETA: I feel dumb, what Elvis references? :lol:

    I like the spoiler info about Crystal in the People article. It sounds like Tim might have passed the mantle of cheese to Aaron. We'll see.

    When Kara came out in a bikini during the season finale, I thought that she was kind of excited about it and just pretending to be bashful. Now she's not even bothering with the bikini? :lol:

    ETA: Brian, the title of the thread and the title of the poll are references to Elvis songs.

    Great, I wanted to take a shower before this started, but Finley crawled on my lap about a half hour ago. Now, he moves. And Adam is on my teevee. :)

    Elvis night!

    Excuse me, I must go rescue Adam from that wind tunnel he's apparently stuck in. :p

    Crystal begins Elivs night with a rousing rendition of a song I don't recognize. Probably won't be beat.

    Adam's head looks giant beside Ryan's. Ryan looks like his is two sizes too small. And they are both wearing too much foundation.

    Crystal was the same as usual. Great- but it has ceased being surprising.

    The electric guitar didn't really change anything, performance-wise, because I think they forgot to turn it on.

    I do totally covet that guitar, though.

    So when is she going to sing Bonnie? Crystal is so far above the rest of the cast. I'm glad she went first cause now I can flip to DWTS. Like right now and miss Andrew.

    I definitely want her to do "Holding Out For A Hero" instead of "Total Eclipse of the Heart".

    Oh. Em. Gee. Andrew is going to do Hound Dog. This could possibly be up there with Kate's Paparazzi dance. :watch:

    For the season finale, it would be awesome if Bonnie agreed to perform with Crystal.

    At least it isn't Aaron who is doing Hound Dog. :lol:

    Andrew's vocals good on Hound Dog, his performance style doesn't appeal to me at all.

    Adam encouraging Tim to end song in a falsetto. Sounded okay with Adam, he could make us all :scream: live, though. Plus, there's no way he can relate to this song.

    eta: he didn't go for it at all. Not bad, though.

    This "pretty" version of Can't Help Falling in Love with You is pretty lame. Tim should cut his hair a little bit.

    I don't think Tim will ever try a falsetto again after his horrific performance of Apologize.

    He needs to sex up this song like he did with Treat her Like a Lady, but it's not coming through, imo. Kinda meh. And I really, really, really want to like Lee.

    (A Little Less Conversation for those on the West Coast.)

    Lee continues on his winning streak with A Little Less Conversation. Love his Joe Cocker voice. How can they criticize this if they liked Tim?

    Thanks. I just don't think Lee has it in him to do that right now. He's not comfortable enough on stage. In the backstage stuff they showed last week, it turned out he had a bit of a personality, but he shows no personality on stage. He needs a little umph in general.

    Lee should picture Kara naked.
