Who would you bring back for 'Idol' all-stars?

Trenyce_lOkay, so four weeks into the season, and my excitement level for American Idol is somewhere between toddler-on-sugar-rush and toy-poodle-when-mommy-
comes-home-from-work. In other words, it’s wicked high. Which makes sense since we’re goin’ to Hollywood for Tuesday night’s episode, and I frakkin’ love Hollywood week! But after reading this story in Newsday — in which producer Nigel Lythgoe said he’d like to bring back previous seasons’ Idol finalists to perform the 10 compositions selected for the new Idol songwriting competition — I’m seriously on the brink of collapse. Because do you know what this means? It means Trenyce — née Lashundra Cobbins — with her spindly legs, Bratz-doll eyes, and supple voice, might get sprung from singing backup with the KLF in Russia (seriously) and get another shot at… fame!

Oh, Trenyce, you’re gonna live forever. You’re gonna learn how to fly — high! I feel it coming together, don’t you, PopWatchers? But which other nine Idol also-rans (presumably ones who aren’t busy having megastar careers like Carrie Underwood or Chris Daughtry) should be drafted for a second tour of duty? Jessica Sierra? George Huff? Lisa Leuschner? Ready, set… brainstorm!
