American Idol was pretty pathetic tonight. I found myself falling asleep during some of the performances because they were so dull. I felt like several of the cast members crashed and burned at their attempt to put their own spin on the classic Elton John songs. I really expected all of them to put on a huge show for us like Elton does when he performs but most failed to even keep me awake. However, there were a few bright performances that made it worth watching. I thought Pia, Stefano and Casey shined tonight. They changed the original songs to make it work for their voice. I even thought Lauren did well and I liked the country spin she put on her Elton John song. All in all it was a night to forget. I would predict that Thia and Naima will be voted off tomorrow night. I guess we will have to wait until tomorrow to see if I am correct.
