American Idol 7: Top 12 Performances, Live Thoughts

  • BuddyTV
It's here: Beatles Night on American Idol. I've been waiting with both excited anticipation and sheer dread for the Top 12 to perform tunes from the legendary Lennon/McCartney songbook (I doubt anyone will do a George Harrison song – maybe “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” or “Taxman”). I have no doubt that at least a couple of The Beatles songs will be butchered tonight, but I also am optimistic that we'll hear a handful or worthy covers. The simple truth is that almost every Beatles song is a great song, which makes it that much easier for the American Idol hopefuls to concoct a good arrangement. Word on the street is that Emi/Capitol/Michael Jackson/Apple/whatever only released 25 Beatles songs for the Idols to choose from tonight. This bothered me at first, but let's be honest – they're all exceptional pieces of music and 25 is more than enough to choose from.
