American Idol Shocker!

I don't typically blog about things like this, but I could not believe it...they sang Shout to the Lord on American Idol?!?! And twice...

I know on Wednesday night they said, "My Shepherd, my Savior" instead of "My Jesus, my Savior" but not last night. They got the song lyrics correct this time (or got corrected beforehand is probably more like it...I don't know). Even so, I have been blown away with hearing the name of Jesus so much on American Idol the last few weeks. Not just on American Idol gives back either. Two weeks ago Dolly Parton sang all about Jesus, and they had a band that sang This Little Light of Mine (although I didn't care too much for their version) that same night. Then they start out last night's show with Shout to the Lord (again)...what's up with that? I really want to know. Not that I'm not thrilled to death about it...I'm just curious as to why. If anyone knows I'd love to hear the story.

I'm still upset that one of my favorites got booted off last night, but praise the Lord that the name of Jesus is being proclaimed with such a popular show!!

I was surprised at that, too. I didn't watch all of Wednesday night's Idol Gives Back, yet, so I didn't see the first version. When Chris and I watched it last night and they sang that song, I was delighted. :) It sounded good, too. I love AI. I'm rooting for Jason Castro and David Archelleta. Who do you like?

My favorites are both David's and Michael (or was) and I also like Brook and Jason. I think Christy should have gone home a long time ago...
