This just in: At the moment I write this sentence, Danny Gokey and Lil Rounds are running fifth and eighth respectively in’s American Idol Power List reader poll, and that’s something of a shock, considering the strong push from the producers and judges that the pair of early front-runners have received this season. My co-host Annie “Dancing in the Street” Barrett and I offer some Top Dowloads Week advice for Lil and Danny (as well as Kris Allen, Anoop Desai, and Megan Joy Corkrey) in a Very Special Episode of Idolatry that features riveting choreography,  plenty of bleeped profanity, a menacing Japanese robot, and my first (and last) attempt to sex up the show. Press play below and enjoy!
