“American Idol” – ’80s ladies

So last night was ’80s night on American Idol, and I got to hear some of my favorite songs. (What’s wrong with Simon — how can he not recognize the awesomeness of “I Drove All Night”?! And I do mean the Cyndi Lauper version, of course.)

I think Amanda Overmyer totally redeemed herself, after a very weak performance last week.

It helped that she sang one of my favorite songs ever, Joan Jett‘s “I Hate Myself for Loving You.” Here it is:



I love myself for loving the way Amanda’s so unimpressed by the whole Idol experience!

And Ramiele Malubay did a great job with a song I thought I never needed to hear again, Phil Collins’ “Against All Odds.”

 




But my favorite performance of the night was Brooke White‘s acoustic interpretation of Pat Benatar‘s “Love Is a Battlefield.”

I was hanging on every word, every note. She could be one to beat.



As for who’s going home tonight, Kady and Kristy were so forgettable, I could barely remember their names long enough to type this sentence! Everyone else was just OK for me, as Randy might say.
