'American Idol' Live Recap: Top 10 Perform Hits from Billy Joel

I'm not entirely sure whether or not to be excited for Billy Joel week on American Idol. I like some of his music, but his best songs are the ones that heavily feature the piano, so I'm curious to see how this will translate to a singing competition. My song suggestions caused a bit of a stir in the comments, but mostly because I flippantly called Billy Joel a creep. To backtrack, the music is the important thing here and I'm not sure if musically, this is the right theme for a bunch of teenagers. It appears that the people who love Billy Joel don't think these kids can do him justice, and the people who don't care for his music don't want to hear ten covers of it. Another thing I'm curious about is P. Diddy mentoring on Billy Joel week, but stranger things have happened.

I'm glad I was wrong last week when I thought American Idol wouldn't send anyone home on Thursday due to Jermaine Jones's swift disqualification. I was even more pleased to see that Shannon Magrane failed to garner a sufficient amount of viewer votes, or the judges' save. I guess they're still doing that save thing. But on with the show that no one wanted to happen.
