our first spoiler?...

It's being reported that Taylor's dad, in a local interview, remarked that the kids will be confined to choosing Elvis "originals," as opposed to the many covers Elvis recorded. I'm not sure which songs that might exclude, since an Elvis cover usually outsold the original, but I think it's safe to presume that if Elvis released it as a single (that would be what us old folks call a 45...) it is fair game. And, considering the man had probably more #1 singles on the chart than anybody in the history of singles and charts, I don't think it'll be a hardship on any one of the final four.

And speaking of next week, seems we have our first spoiler. When asked about Taylor's potential choices, it's being said that somebody simply said the hint was right there all along. Right there on his feet.

Now, you take it from there.

I just wanted to see that shirt again.

Blue Suede Shoes.

Blah, I don't like that song.

That was the first song that popped in my head for Taylor to do. He has to be careful not to do something thats sounds to "kitchsy" or too much like a Vegas Elvis impersonator. I think this is one that he can rock out and put his own Taylorisms on with ease. Should be great!

I don't think blue suede shoes is an Elvis original. I could be wrong but I think it was written and first recorded by Carl Perkins.

Yea, it's a cover of Carl Perkins. That's why I'm a bit confused by what they mean by "originals."

Oh well. Guess we'll see.

The biggest spoiler of them all?

Pick up a copy of this week's TV Guide, and if you go to the story about the Idols, and the discussion about making home town visits, only 3 of the Idols are pictured. Elliot is conspicuously missing.

Yes, I saw that. Ticked me off, but also missing was Paris and Kellie was featured. No different than Simon going around saying Taylor and Chris will be F2, except that Kat is getting better. Blatant pimping is getting old; hopefully it will bite them by getting the Elliott fans, like me, committed to dial like never before. We'll see.

My mom & I both vowed to dial Elliott's line 'til our fingers bleed this week. I would love to see him make the final 3!

You can do anything you want,
but stay off of my blue suede shoes!
