Last night, the TV and film worlds collided on American Idol. The Top 8 had to strut their stuff by belting out songs from movies — and let’s just say that while a few contenders rose to the challenge, others faltered. Big time. But since I don’t want to sway your selection for the “Who Should Go Home?” poll below, I’ll keep my opinions to myself for now and then tonight or tomorrow morning, after the results are already announced, I’ll share in the comments whether I agree with who America sent packing.
In the meantime, a few other thoughts:
- Does anyone else think there’s a huge media conspiracy going on now that new Idol host Jennifer Lopez nabbed the “World’s Most Beautiful Woman” cover on People magazine? I’m saying this even though I actually adore J.Lo — I do think she’s gorgeous and truly seems like a warm, caring person. But Idol‘s been promoting her new single to the hilt, and now with this People cover it seems like there was some sort of collaboration between media empires at work. Trust no one!
- During the show last night I found myself thinking about what movie songs I wish one of the Top 8 had chosen. The first that popped into my mind was the Grammy, Golden Globe and Academy Award-winning song “Let the River Run” by Carly Simon, made famous in 1988′s Working Girl. It’s always been one of my favorites, and I feel like it could’ve been a powerful choice for someone like Lauren. Was there a great movie song you wish someone had picked?
But now for the real question: Who deserves to go home?
Sound off in the poll below and/or share your thoughts in the comments.
Can’t get enough of the Most Beautiful Woman in the World?
