I am officially sick of theme nights. Love songs? Images of frightening late-night infomercials come to mind. I think that Chris, Paris, and Elliot will have the hardest time selling a love song. Not necessarily the hardest time singing one, but the hardest time selling one.
I would prefer a format that let each singer pick his/her own song. Last year, Bo Bice lost the finale because the final songs were written for Carrie Underwood’s style, not for his. Who is being set up to win – or to lose – this year?
I think I’m going to add another column to my American Idols pundits chart to indicate which bloggers are actually making their predictions before reading the exit polls (i.e. DialIdol.com).
