Andrew Lloyd Webber Night Was a Stretch for Most AI Contestants

The AI contestants had to sing songs from Andrew Lloyd Webber's musicals tonight. What's worse, the maestro himself coached their efforts and he was not kind. Actually, he seemed mostly appalled by their puny pop voices. The biggest exception of the night was Syesha, who came out swinging and owned the stage with "One Rock and Roll Too Many". We will take a little break from David Cook tonight and post Syesha's well deserved performance instead. David sang the very difficult "Music of the Night" from Phantom of the Opera. He did the best possible under the circumstances, but you really have to own vocal chops like an Irish Tenor to pull that one off. David is dripping with rock star talent, but he does not have a "pretty" voice.

So what will American Idol have them all singing next week? Puccini? Can't wait for Archuleta to take on Nessun Dorma. ;)

Happy Earth Day, Everybody!
