Last week one of my favorites, Emily PIriz, was eliminated from this season’s offering of American Idol.
She was scheduled to sing Pink’s version of “Somewhere Over The Rainbow” this week. I have no doubt it would have been outstanding and would have provided marked contrast with last week’s upbeat performance of Jennifer Lopez’s “Let’s Get Loud”.
But we forge on with a little trepidation because, unfortunately, some of the best singers are slowly being decimated on this show.
However, I love the theme this week and, hopefully, the Top 11 have selected some great movie-themed songs to entertain us over the two-hour performance show.
Expect Harry Connick Jr. to be very picky this week. Many songs in this genre will fall into his particular singing style and lyrics will be a huge deal for him. And for me!
And, please – stop the guitars on stage. Everyone looks and sounds the same when they hold their guitars and, to my mind, the strongest performers are those who have elected not to carry a guitar as a crutch.
The Performance Show airs at 8:00 PM on Wednesday, March 12th, followed by the Results Show on Thursday, March 13th. On the latter, Harry Connick Jr. will take to the stage and strut his stuff.
