Lady Gaga and American Idol? Now that’s a combo I can’t wait to watch. What will the woman who isn’t afraid to wear a dress made out of meat say to the American Idolfinal four? Unfortunately since it is a ‘family’ show, we’re sure there probably won’t be any flank steak bikinis going on, but still, we are hoping Lady Gaga will be more entertaining than the boringly drab mentors they usually feature. Although, hell, ANYONE would have to be better than former Idol mentor Miley Cyrus. I mean, really? Miley Cyrus?
Although we are always happy to jump on board the Gaga train, we do have to wonder why on Earth the show producers decided to have her mentor during the week the contestants are required to perform Leiber & Stoller tunes. Then again, why the hell does American Idol keep dragging out these incredibly outdated and overdone themes? Is “Jailhouse Rock” or “Hound Dog” really the kind of music that is going to set teenage hearts pounding and launch the career of the next singing sensation? Could we at least move the music themes to sometime after the majority of the contestants were actually born?
Of all the remaining contestants, we can kind of see James Durbin having a little Lady Gaga in him there somewhere. Lauren Alainamight wish she did, but sorry hun, it’s just not happening. As for Haley Reinhart and Scotty Mcreery, well, we just want to watch Gaga’s face while they are singing. Just for funsies. Speaking of Haley though, we think it is a shame she didn’t learn enough from that fantastic duet with Casey Abrams. THAT is the kind of music that makes her voice sound heavenly divine. Her pipes were made for that genre. Too bad she really doesn’t quite seem to get that yet.
James Durbin for the win. Still calling it. Even with the echo of Adam Lambert hanging over his head.
