I finally got what I've been wanting to see--standards on American Idol. Melinda and Lakisha knocked it out of the park as usual. There never has been any doubt it will be these two in the final. Sanjaya gave us a nice reading of "Dancing Cheek to Cheek," and Phil got stuck with a crooning, sweetened arrangement of "Night and Day" that completely took the shine off the song.
Back to pop next week, but it was nice to hear the songs I like for a change.
UPDATE: Jordin's turn with "On A Clear Day" was also star quality. Most poignant moment: Gina Glocksen singing "Smile" after being eliminated.
