I'm normally done with "American Idol" after the audition shows, but there are some things you just can't ignore playing in the background of Chez Clark.

I'll be the first to admit the Stones are a good 25 years past their sell-by date, but whoever came up with the bright idea to have the "Idol" kids tackle the Jagger/Richards songbook should be pilloried in Hyde Park and flogged for 40 days and 40 nights.

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) I haven't watched the contestants do the Stones yet, but when I learned they'd tackle Stones songs, I figured only 2 or 3, if that many, could actually get away with it.

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) To each their own.

Enjoy that New Kids on the Block reunion, Kevin.

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments at least they are only twenty years removed from being relevant

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) Got around to watching the Stones episode. Some of the contestants were truly bad. One girl, Siobhan, on the other hand, totally smoked Paint it, Black.

Phil | 11729 comments I like Siobhan's personality. It's right out there for all to view. Our favorite voice on Idol so far is Crystal.

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10826 comments Okay, so I don't watch the show, but I have checked out the website to watch the performances. Crystal knocks it out of the park every time. And I like Michael, too... the rest are forgettable pop performances.

Sioban's voice would be perfect for theatre, musicals, stage #s, and I love her look (and her name), but her pitch is a bit too whiny for my taste.

Gus Sanchez (gussanchez) I'll admit I'm not all that crazy about Siobhan. She has a powerful voice, but she needs some work on harnessing it. Plus, she seems slightly kooky, which may or may not work for her.

I'm still furious that Lilly got voted off. She and Crystal were my front runners. The guys, on the other hand, are all forgettable. Sure, Big Mike has a ton of personality, but at the end of the day, he's a decent singer, but not anyone I'd pay to hear perform.

smetchie | 4035 comments I was sad when Alex got voted off. He was so darn cute and I loved his voice.

They did mostly butcher the Stones. I prefer when they pick a theme. I'm usually disappointed when they all do one artist.

Yeah, you're right. And if you have any doubts, check out that film Scorcese did a few years back.

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments thank you KD. i never was a stones fan but they were at least doing it cool about until beast of burden.

i don't like when they take a group or artist and then have to do their songs anyway. i would rather see them tackle an era or genre. actually, the more i think about it, i couldn't give a flying flapjack about idol anyway

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments man man man. that was the BEST idol audition ever KD. i am still laughing. i seldom get a good chick giggle going but i am snickering like a school girl over that clip. i just wish he had a bat or a pigeon to bite at the end. that totally gassed him out eh? i thought he was going down
