American Idol 9: The Top 5 Theme is..

Well, Ryan announced it yesterday. Harry Connick Jr. will mentor the American Idol 9 Top 5 next week as they tackle the songs of Frank Sinatra.

Also, Harry Connick Jr will be the first 'Idol' mentor to arrange the songs, write the orchestrations for the contestants and perform. He will also be performing on Wednesday’s results show. Lady Gaga will also appear to perform Bad Romance/Alejandro.

Wow. Another entertaining theme! Seriously. When I think about it, just the thought makes me want tto die for a minutes thinking these bland people singing this songbook. They haven’t done justice to any of the themes thus far, and I don’t see this being the exception. Granted they all can sing - to a degree - but they have no real Sinatra type swagger!

That said, I hope the Top 5 can demonstrate their “pure musical” chops while changing the songs up a bit to express themselves. If they can do that, then it would be a great evening of entertainment. However, if they just sing the songs in a copy of Frank Sinatra style, no matter how well they sing them technically, to me, that’ll just be like sitting around listening to people’s vocal lessons. Go Figure!
