    When I think of Crystal, Joe Cocker does not spring to mind.

    Thinking about Paula, I wonder how this season would have been different if she had been there. Maybe there would have been more balance. Her approach is a counter to the pompous, self-absorbed on one half of the judging panel. She has also has a better ability than Kara and Simon to see beyond her own personal tastes, so we might have seen more diversity amongst the singers and the judging. She probably wouldn't have been so quick to criticize some of the contestants for performing the kind of stuff that got them to the top 12. (Like Tyler Grady and Katie). She might even have encouraged Casey to some bluesy rock. She's a nutcase, but she's isn't boring.

    If that second clue for Lee is right,

    Spoiler

    then I think that will help them promote him as the sensitive nice paintstore salesman, but I'm not sure he has the vocal control and pitch for that song. I'm sure the first clue is right and he'll be reprising that song.

    ETA: Crystal just tweeted this:
    “This morning was rough. But like anything else in life you just keep on keeping on with love in your heart. I love you guys and I need all the support I can get, and not just votes. But those are good too! Thank you all for getting me this far and hopefully all the way! A million hugs for you.”

    I hope she's not having health problems. Maybe they just gave her a tough song for her to sing.

    I'm in semi-anguish as there's no indication yet of David Cook being there for the finale. I know he's not singing, but to not be there at all?

    However, I'm holding out hope at a few surprises. Wouldn't it amazing to have all 8 past winners there? Doubt it would happen, but would be cool.

    By the way,

    Spoiler

    Give me one more quiet night, before this loud morning gets it right, and does me in.

    Joe Cocker? Really? I know I'll wind up watching the finale, but I can't guarantee that I won't be cleaning my toilet at the same time...

    VFTW and Simon are supporting the same singer.

    I would love it if Crystal and Lee each sang one of their originals for their final song instead of the usual crap coronation song. They write better than Kara and her buddies do.

    I feel bad for Kris that he's got to sing The Truth. There are a bunch of better song choices on his album. What's up with the singles choices for him and Adam?

    Then you'll be hoping he sings "She Came in Through the Bathroom window"?

    I thought about this earlier at work and came here to post the exact same thing. Since both Lee and Crystal write their own music, how about letting them perform an original that they want to do as their very first single instead of the sunflower-daisies with bastard-ass rainbows coronation song?? Perhaps, though, that gives them a little bit too much lee-way from the iron grip the recording companies have on them afterwards.. it'd be nice if they let them, though.

    Who was curse with writing this year's "There Are No Boundaries to the Rainbows Inside Your Hoo-Ha" coronation song?

    I don't think I'll be able to survive another POS Kara DiGargoyle nightmare .

    Read on Top Idol that the rumor going around is that Canadian Chantel Kreviazuk wrote the coronation song "Ever Since Tomorrow".

    Have no idea if this is true or not; I guess we'll see in a bit!!

    According to MJ, that rumor is not true.

    Clay is in LA too, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed that he's on the show. (Quiana Parler is with him, so he must be singing somewhere). His new CD- Tried and True comes out next Tuesday, and it'd be a bit of promotion for him.

    I hope Crystal outperforms Lee tonight, because I think he'd be the most disappointing winner since Taylor Hicks.

    Ahem, y'all. It's a MAGIC rainbow. It's special. It's not like it's some ordinary, average run of the mill rainbow.

    It was magic. Really.

    (I love that in interviews, David Cook says he "thought the time signature of the song was interesting." Because, really, what else can you say about it? )

    Fuller's picks make sense, but they are tough to sing. Are the coronation songs covers or cheesy originals?

    Good lord, the Nokia Theatre seems absolutely monstrous in size compared to AI's "home" venue.

    Hopefully that will intimidate the crap out of Lee and decimate his ersatz "confidence" that TPTB manufactured for the Pillsbury Doughboy

    Also-Crystal couldn't decide which of Stevie Nick's dresses to borrow, so she wore several of them at once.
