    Latest news - Lauren had lost her voice and got some medical treatment and got it back.

    Best of luck to both.

    I just read what Scotty sang...

    He was terrible the first time he sang "Xxxx," so he probably wouldn't have to do a lot to improve on the first time... I certainly couldn't imagine him doing it any worse than the first time...

    As for "Xxxxx Xxx Xx Xx," I developed a headache from simply trying to imagine what he might sound like doing it... :nono2:


    BTW, to machavez00 who I see is reading this thread, happy birthday! :)

    Not necessary, but I didn't want to name the songs until after the West Coast showing aired...

    If you know what the (cover) songs are, it's not hard to figure out what they are... heck... "Xxxx" isn't hard to figure out with my comment on it even if you don't.

    Well, I watched the show and still can't figure them out.


    Never seen spoilers in an air dated thread.

    Also, didn't realize what song people sing would be a spoiler.

    Yes, I understand that. Probably a bunch of people recorded it to watch tomorrow too.

    I don't open threads about specific episodes until I've actually seen the episode.

    Not a big deal, just pointing out spoilers aren't necessary and make it confusing to read.

    I think it's OK to talk about this week's show in this week's thread. Left coasters know whether or not to enter the thread.

    "Xxxx" is the song from round one. "Xxxxx Xxx Xx Xx" is the song from round TWO.

    LOL, thanks Alan. I figured that much, but while I listened to the songs, I wasn't paying enough attention to know what titles they were.

    Fame?

    LOL!!!

    As a Country music listener, I know the songs very well... including owning BOTH of them.

    I'd probably know them too, but to be honest, Idol is more of a background show for me. I don't pay full attention, but just listen while I work on my laptop.

    BTW, I thought Lauren was the better of the two. Didn't like Scotty's first song at all.
