American Idol + Beatles = NO!

I love American Idol and I love Beatles music. Last night they were combined and the Top 12 sang Beatles songs. Boo. This was a bad idea and even I knew that. If you're gonna cover a Beatles song you have to be more than just a good singer. You have to be a great singer and you have to be willing to put all of your emotions into it.

One of the most horrific things I've ever seen was Kristy Lee Cook singing the square dance version of "8 Days a Week" last night. I wanted to vomit while watching it. I really really really hated it. Really.

RSS feeds scare and confuse me. i'm much happier just clicking.
