It must have been what NOT to wear week. Paula’s was dressed in what looked like purple lingerie.
But Never mind the Idol fashions - it’s the music that counts. Isn’t it?
This weeks theme was the top 40 most popular downloads. It gives you an idea of the song choices this week. And now that Megan’s been voted off and sent home to Utah to learn how to sing…. the final looks all the more predictable with young Elvis lookalike Adam Lambert still the hot favourite to win. Much to Simon’s delight of course!!
And now the bad news - Next week Kellie Pickler returns to the IDOL stage - And I have one question = WHY?...
Talking of losers - I hear that Simon’s dumped X factor runners up Same Difference. The only brother and sister act who gave the show the cheese factor. Simon SAYS. Look, we invested a lot of money in these guys - and it didn’t work out. The album didn’t sell.
I’m not surprised - it was twenty years too late!!
So…. there I was - just helping my mother clear out the gin bottles from under her bed - when suddenly I heard the sound of Derek Stroker coming from the Fames Games talent bank. This Nashville singer has a unique cool sound and I love his song Move Your Feet - is Stroker yor real name Derek? Really? I love it - and your music.
And I couldn’t help but wonder - I hope he can because no matter how good your voice is - I think at some point, as an artist, you have to consider whether you are going to put your future in other peoples hands - and I don’t just mean Simon’s - I mean trusting that you will have - the pick of the best songwriters in the world at your feet.
Well ..if Adam can't write songs - there is one fact that does baud well for his future - ELVIS Presely was the biggest selling recording artist of all time ---and Yet he never recorded one song that he wrote.
So maybe there is hope after all….
