American Idol Recap – Group Week

Fresh off a solid Hollywood round week last Thursday, Idol is back tonight for what might be my most favorite episode each season…the dreaded Group Week. Those unfamiliar, just think back to when you were in school and the teacher gave you a group assignment and made you pick your own groups. Sometimes you’re in a group where all of you gel and deliver an outstanding performance on the task at hand, and then other times, you’re stuck in an awkward mish-mash group with competing personalities, or people who don’t want to do any work and get all the credit, or someone that actually tries hard but is the obvious weak link on your team and you and the other members of your team secretly plot to have that person framed for murder and deported to Siberia. Not like I was ever a part of that…

Two hours tonight of drama, 168 contestants left from the first cuts of Hollywood Week, so let’s get right to it. Here’s my current Top 10 of those who I know made it thru from last week.

MY CURRENT TOP TEN (last week’s rankings in parenthesis)
1. Lauren Alaina (1)

“Oh, there’s a new opening credits,” notes Maggie.  Only took 3 episodes for her to notice.

Idol is live (well it was six months ago) from Milwaukee, home of former Idol bronze medalist Danny Gokey, but more importantly this is a city of rich history.  Isn’t that right Alice Cooper?

(As always, contestants who make it to Hollywood are listed with an asterisk)

*Scottie McCreery – country version of former contestant John Stephens

Steven Tyler just uttered the rarely used phrase “f*** a duck,” to which Jennifer Lopez suggested they edit that to “suck a duck.”. Yeah, because that’s a lot more kid friendly.
