American Idol: The boys bring it

Screamin' Casey Abrams put a spell on us

I'm not taking it all back (yet) cuz I still think all the tears and drama are stupid, but Ihave to say: the guys brought it last night. Not a single contestant truly sucked (except Jordan, who almost truly sucked, but he's a jerk anyway). Some were absolutely spectacular. Doing Screamin' Jay Hawkins on Idol is nuts, so much could go wrong -- but Casey Abrams pulled of "I Put A Spell On You" in a way that seemed almost impossibly brilliant. I thought Steven Tyler was going to melt into a puddle, he was so blown away. Jennifer Lopez said he was sexy, which should pretty much leave him set for life. I loved Paul McDonald singing Maggie May. Good song selections everywhere. Tonight: The girls.
