Earlier today, we all gathered for a PopWatch post called “What should the Idols sing for ‘Songs of the Cinema’ night?” Many of you came up with exciting, inventive suggestions for season 8’s top 7 contestants, but (naturally) we got a pair of treacly Bryan Adams ballads, the love theme from that crapsterpiece Armageddon, and a Diana Ross number…set to a harp! When I can’t quite understand the judges’ praise for Allison Iraheta, and find myself bordering on a defense of Lil Rounds (I said bordering), you know the night was very strange indeed. At least Kris Allen sung what he brung. But ultimately, it was one of those Idol nights that’s going to take me a couple of hours (and some unhealthy treats) to figure out how I really feel. Good thing my sister Kathy provided me with a marshmallow Peep resting in a homemade chocolate-coconut nest (with a couple of Cadbury mini eggs thrown in for good measure). When you’ve finished shnacking, post your thoughts in the comments section below, then do come back in the ay-em for my full TV Watch recap!
