'American Idol': Discuss 'Rat Pack' Night as it happens!

Posted on

A heartfelt poem as we head into Top 5 performance night on American Idol. When you’re done reading, head on down to the comments section below to discuss the Rat Pack Night shenanigans with your fellow readers. I’ll be back at 9-ish with my first impressions (update: click here to read it now!), and then again in the wee small hours of the morning with my full TV Watch recap.

I’ve recently decided
I’m genuinely excited
About the final five of season 8
My speed-dial finger’s ready
My emotions are unsteady
Even sixth-place Anoop was pretty great
I always lead the rally
For Adam, Kris, and Alli
My ”hell yeah!” sent-from-heaven final three
But fans of Matt and Gokey
You’re all quite okee-dokey
Thank God 866 numbers are toll-free
