Oh well, at least she wears cute outfits and tonight was no exception. She can't sing great, but she does have good fashion sense.

As for Colton, I have been meh about him all season, and he really stank it up last night, so it wasn't shocking. I really am surprised that Elise didn't go home, but she is much better than Colton IMO.

I think now that Colton is gone, all his votes will swing to Phillip. He is almost guaranteed a spot in the final. It will be interesting to see who will be standing next to him...
Hollie can sing very well. She definitely did better than Colton on Wednesday night this week.

I would have rather it been Jessica personally, great vocals until this week, but disconnected.

That's the song the Queen Extravaganza tribute band is doing on results night so I doubt any of the contestants will be given a shot at it.

That is a shame. It really is the most mainstream Queen song that some of the big singers could sink their teeth into.

I have tried to come up with song choices for the remaining 6 and am coming up blank. I thought Somebody to love was a lock for someone.

We are The Champions will probably get sung.

Love Of My Life would be a good choice.

Crazy Little Thing Called Love is radio friendly but not the best song for impressing the audience.

You're My Best Friend might not be a bad choice.

Will anyone have the guts to attempt Bohemian Rhapsody? I don't see any of them pulling that off.

The one person I question the most is Phil. I am not sure his growl is going to work on any Queen song.

He is, but only for a very limited number of appearances. (I think only 2 or 3 have been announced.)

(Note that Queen is *not* performing on Idol... the Queen Extravaganza is, though.)

No. He has nothing to do with this group. The (main) lead singer for QE is Marc Martel, formerly of the band Downhere.

Jessica - Spread Your Wings or Don't Stop Me Now

Elise - Tie Your Mother Down or FBG

Skylar - FBG or Crazy Little Thing Called Love

P2 - Get Down, Make Love or Another One Bites the Dust

Joshua - The Show Must Go On (sans vacuum cleaner)

Hollie - We are the Champions or I Want it All

If anbody tries Bohemian it should be Elise....but I be they do that as a results show group song.....

Did anyone else see all of the other contestants start going to him for hugs and such then have to turn around when he fell on his knees?
I had wondered what his more religious followers were going to think of him doing a Lady Gaga song, which I happened to kinda like...

It's terribly confusing for peeps that don't follow Queen closely.
tiams- Queen Extravaganza the tribute band is all new folks, fan voted and Roger approved.

As far as (the real) "Queen featuring Adam Lambert" so far there are four shows- Moscow, Kiev, and two in London although Brian mentioned a couple of days ago that they were trying to add a more London dates as they sold out so fast.

As far as the Idols singing Queen I can think of many good songs- my pics might be The Show Must Go On, I Want To Break Free, I Want It All, Killer Queen, Save Me, One By One, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, You're My Best Friend, Seven Seas of Rhye, One Vision, Living On My Own, I'm Going Slightly Mad, Good Old-Fashioned Lover Boy, Fat Bottomed Girls, It's A Hard Life, Who Wants To Live Forever, Love Of My Life, These Are The Days of Our Lives, Play The Game... the list is endless and most should be familiar at least to us geezers.

There is literally something for everyone in any style they feel like doing.
Personally I am hoping for P2 to do Fat Bottomed Girls... and NO ONE to do Don't Stop Me Now as it is my personal theme song and thus sacrosanct

Wow. Colton huh? Did NOT see that one coming. At least not the go home part... I'd guess this bodes well for Phillip Phillips.

Brian as well. Roger was the main driving force, but Brian has offered his endorsement.

I'm not thoroughly convinced that Phillip will benefit from Colton's votes.
I mean he went home in seventh place, so doesn't have a ton of died in the wool voters to begin with. If, as is believed around the Idol boards, his Christian fan base abandoned him because he performed Gaga (which is what most believe his apology and sing out behavior was all about) then I can't see them switching horses just because their he went home.
They just won't vote, at least not in the frenzied power texting manner a true fanatic would.

We all assume P2 is running away with it but we just don't know and that's why it's an interesting season to me- anything could happen.

Yebbut- that sentence didn't quite have the same ring to it

I don't even recognize many of those songs but I was definitely a mid to late 70's queen fan (Sheer Heart Attack - Live Killers). The Game was the first Queen album I did not purchase because I did not like Another One Bites The Dust or Crazy Little Thing Called Love.

Crazy Little Thing Called Love has Phillip written all over it.
