Idol Thoughts

This weeks theme was Then & Now, where the contestants first sang a recent song and then an older song.  Of the present day songs, I thought that James and Jacob fell flat.  I wasn’t sure if I’d like Lauren picking a Carrie song because Carrie is really, really, really good – but I think it worked out.  Scotty was his usual consistent self and Haley did an unreleased Gaga song and I think she did well.  I thought that the older songs were a bit stronger choices, but Jacob was still blah.  I hope that it is him going home this week.

Jimmy Iovine seemed to have a bit too much of a hand in song selection, I guess that is his job – but he seemed to sway everyone in… interesting directions, to say the least.  He also had Sheryl Crow on hand to help mentor the gang and I thought that she did a great job with her advice.

I’m thinking it should be an all male bottom 3 and that Jacob should be going home.  If he is not going home this week I might have to consider not watching next week. I am just so over him…

Also – Get Glue users – there are some Idol stickers now! I think if you check in once you get a sticker, if you mention one of the contestants names you get a Tour sticker (it didn’t work when I put in Stefano’s name after he was gone, but did work when I put in Casey’s before he was gone – so you might want to try with a current contestant) There are also stickers for Steven Tyler, Jennifer Lopez, Randy Jackson and Ryan Seacrest. Just comment with “I love [insert name here]” and they should pop. (Supposedly they don’t work if you put them all in one check-in, I did them all separately) and then there appears to be stickers for each of the last 5 results shows which will be a generic sticker but then on Friday it will turn into the contestant who went home. Of course, after I couldn’t care less about having a sticker of whoever is left… but I’ll be collecting them all on my account anyway!

Unplanned DVD Review&Giveaway Ends May 22

Unplanned is the true story of how Abby Johnson went from Planned Parenthood clinic director to leading voice for life and women in crisis.
Abby Johnson made a courageous decision when she walked away from her job as the director of a key Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas and walked into the office of the Coalition for Life down the street.  Yet that turning point was preceded by years of searching – and a moment of pure awakening.  Little did she know that her one decision would turn into a national news story or that she’d immediately go from being a leader for Planned Parenthood to being a very public figure in the right-to-life debate.
Now in Unplanned, the documentary based on her sensational book of the same title, Anny takes you back to the Planned Parenthood clinic where she worked for years as a pro-choice advocate. You’ll hear directly from Abby how a few moments in a room of that same clinic changed her perspective, and her life, forever.
In this intriguing and inspirational story, you’ll follow Anny on a journey into her past – through her wrestling with an incredible personal dilemma and making a difficult choice – and ultimately to her current mission to fight for life and help women in crisis.

The Unite for LIFE webcast is a free webcast featuring Abby Johnson that will benefit pregnancy care organizations. You can sign up to participate on May 17 at 8:00pm (in all time zones) at Unplanned the book and the DVD will be available for purchase as a package deal and 33% of each purchase will go to the crisis pregnancy centers like CareNet, the National Institute of Family & Life Advocates, and Heartbeat International.

One lucky reader will win a certificate to get their own copy of Unplanned the DVD Documentary (Retails for $19.99)
