The Godfather of Music Returns


ROUND ONE - Clive Davis picks

1) Vonzell Solomon ("I Know I'll Never Love This Way Again," by Dionne Warwick) - I'm so proud of the Vonz! Even though everyone and their dog knows that the finalists are going to be Bo and Carrie, the cutest mail carrier ever comes out wearing a gorgeous black silk dress and delivers one of her best performances yet.

2) Bo Bice ("Don't Let the Sun Go Down on Me," by Elton John) - I love that Clive made Bo sing a song that the Aiken made famous on the Idol 2. Even though I didn't care for the sunglasses bit (he's talking about not letting the sun go down on him...get it? get it???), Bo still did his thang and rocked out to an Elton John song.

3) Carrie Underwood ("Crying," by Roy Orbision) - Have you ever seen that movie "Invasion of the Body Snatchers," where pod-like aliens invade and take human form? Well, this week...the real Carrie seemed to perform instead of the pod Carrie of weeks past. Welcome back real Carrie! Congrats on defeating those awful pod people!

ROUND TWO - The contestants pick

1) Vonzell Solomon ("Chain of Fools," by Aretha Franklin) - Baby V continues to pull out all the stops! Best musical performance by a postal carrier on national television ever!

2) Bo Bice ("In a Dream," by Badlands) - Bo boldly goes where no Idol contestant has gone before: he goes acapella...and then delivers the only TRULY memorable performance of the Idol 4.

3) Carrie Underwood ("Making Love Out of Nothin' at All," by Air Supply) - Who sings Air Supply anymore besides 60 year old guys at karaoke night at the local bowling alley? Well, I guess non-pod-like Carrie does too.

ROUND THREE - The judges pick

1) Vonzell Solomon ("On the Radio," by Donna Summer) - I didn't heart Vonzell's choice of capri pants for this performance...but I certainly did heart her actual performance.

2) Bo Bice ("I Can't Get No Satisfaction," by the Rolling Stones) - I liked Britney's rendition of this song better. And speaking of the Britney...did you see "Britney & Kevin: Chaotic" last night? was super-dull.

3) Carrie Underwood ("I Feel Like a Woman," by Shania Twain) - That's a shame...Carrie the Country Cyborg is back!


Bo, Vonzell, Bo


Say Bye Bye Bye to the Vonz.

You're an idiot! Aiken did NOTHING to make "Don't let the sun go down on me" famous! That was all Elton John. Elton has more talent in his pinky than Aiken could ever hope to have in his lifetime. And Brittany doing "I can't get no satisfaction" ?!? COME ON! William Hung could do a better version!
