    we should watch together - why hurl something at two TVs and destroy them, when we can do a group hurl and save one of the TVs

    Whoah ... I hadn't heard the uptempo version before. Thanks so much for the link. Although I still much prefer the hauntingly beautiful slower version, it's always fun to hear Adam change things up.

    I thought Adam did just fine as a mentor this week; and, as expected, was several shades of awesome during his performance tonight. I could take the hair being just a bit flatter on top ... sometimes less is more. But, that is really nitpicking. With that incredible voice .... well, he can wear his hair anyway he darn pleases. :rockstar:

    Save your TVs. Watch DWTS results show and throw something soft when Kate is saved yet again. On second thought, TV sales may increase dramatically next weekend.

    She has something like 80 million kids doesn't she? They all must be voting, she'll probably win the whole thing. :lol:

    ETA: I am not looking forward to this inspirational song theme. It seems to me that you have to be a really, really strong singer to pull them off, and with the exception of Crystal, there aren't any of those on Idol this year.

    I know a lot of people are left cold by Michael but he has one of the strongest voices on the show and that would be true of any season. He doesn't always inject much personality into his songs but he is practically flawless in the vocal department. I think inspirational songs will be his strongest week if he goes the gospel route.

    I could applaud a good gospel song. It's that saccharine crap I fear.

    Tim Urban is #4 in our poll of the nine people who sang Tuesday night. Apparently 16 of you watched a different show than I did!!! :lol: (You do know that "voting for the worst" doesn't work in our poll, right??) ;)

    Wow, is that true? Obviously I have a tin ear. I think he is just awful. I don't even think his voice is strong enough to do High School Musical. My husband & I just cringed Tuesday night when he sang. He hit so many bad notes we were putting our hands over our ears.

    ITA. He has become much more obnoxious. The Brian Dinkelman comment was totally unnecessary and petty.

    I know! At least have them lip synch to their own processed voices and get the timing a little better. :lol:

    No kidding. And I really didn't think that Katie was one of the worst two. I think Tim handed over some of his cheese to Aaron and borrowed some of Katie's robotics for his singing. I'm guessing that the producers have given up on Aaron and decided to back Tim and his idiotic grin and hair instead.

    I'll join you. I cannot stand that song. And it would be even worse being sung by a pageant boy. I think Crystal will nail the inspirational song. Mike will be good if he can control the corniness. I'm sure Casey can find an inspriational blues-influenced song. I'm afraid Lee might go for one of Nickelback's inspirational songs. Aaron will probably find a country religious song. Tim might go for the patriotic vote.

    Yes. Done acoustically. He'll have to do away with the grin for a couple of minutes. Will he go with the closed eyes or the unblinking eyes?

    Lady Antebellum taped a performance for a future AI episode. I wonder if that means we have country week coming up.

    Are you guys trying to make me jump out my window? It was bad enough when that vapid bint in David Cook's season did it (and then I had to sit through it LIVE :scream: ), but if Tim grins his way through an acoustic version, I'm just going to have to off myself.

    I hope Country Week is really soon, like the week after next since we already know what next week is. I have been hoping Lady Antebellum would go on Idol and get enough of a sales boost to take #1 on the Billboard Hot 100. They have been so close. Now their song is starting to lose spins on Pop radio or is at the very least evening out. If their performance airs in 2 weeks then they may have a high enough audience impression in addition to the sales boost to take #1. I hope it happens for them! The last Billboard #1 on the Hot 100 for a country artist was LoneStar, wasn't it? (Not counting Carrie Underwood's single release after Idol because it was NOT a country single).

    She dropped out once she learned that John Park got the boot. ;)

    It kept her in the competition. And Tim may grin like an idiot, but I think he's very savvy when it comes to manipulating the audience. He'll either go the religion route, the patriotism route, or both like Kristy Lee whatever. I'll bet he throws in a thank-you to the troops.

    This may just be a ploy by 19E to get Tim and Aaron off our TV screens. Can anyone really see the tweens voting for ANY of the incipidspirational songs? This is a blatant prop of Michael and Lee.

    Naw. It's just Fox's effort to tug at heart strings so people will give money and they can chalk up another community service check mark.

    Wow you may be right! I've always thought Tim was just another pretty-boy dumb jock who can sing a little, but he's actually very clever with song choices and knows how to manipulate the teen girl audience (I think he's picked a song with "Love" in the title for like 4 weeks in a row now, and notice he's suddenly wearing tight, unbuttoned t-shirts ). I see him as the male KLC, not male Sanjaya --- and that makes Tim a lot more dangerous in terms of advancing deep into season 9. He's a lot more savvy than his pretty boy looks suggests.

    P.S. There are pics on internet of Tim doing a missionary trip in Africa (playing with African children) and of course, his brother is in the Marines. If Tim chooses to pimp his backstory on Idol Gives Back, he just might land into the AI9 finals because he'll gain the Christian vote and Patriotic vote to go along with the Tween vote.
