A jaunty little poem for you to kick off American Idol‘s Rock Night festivities! Please feel free to chat with abandon in the comments section below, and I’ll be back at 9 p.m.-ish to share my initial impressions [UPDATE: They’re posted!], then again in early morning with my full TV Watch recap. Oh! And one more thing: I’ll be live-blogging tomorrow night’s results show, so if you’re a multi-tasker, please plan to keep one eye on Fox’s telecast, and the other on your computer screen. It should (hopefully) be a blast!

Oh it’s time for the Idols to rock it
Plug those guitars into their sockets
Watch Slash work his axe with pure glee
While Paula chair-dances so free
Let’s hope the Top 4 bring their A games
Prove worthy of being household names
At nine I shall vote with a reason
Save the rocker, and thus save the season!
