Re-Idolizing Elton

Last nite's American Idol was one of the best episodes I can remember.  It was Elton John tribute nite--and I'll admit I was never a huge Elton fan.  But some of these A.I. contestants breathed fresh interpretations into some Elton John classics...and reminded you WHY they were such big hits in the first place (with a tip of the cap to Bernie T for the lyrics).   Alaina did a beautiful version of Candle in the Wind, James "lit up" Saturday Nite's Alright, Casey did justice to Your Song, even local Norcal girl Thia showed unexpected maturity with Daniel....but it was Haley who STOLE the nite, with a breezy but powerful take on B-b-bennie & the Jets.   Haley is a mix of Rickie Lee Jones, Joan Osbourne, Jewel & Janis...and she was BREATH taking last nite.   Could SHE be the next American Idol?  BTW...my choices to go home this week...Paul (awww) and Alaina.    --Not ashamed to admit I watch A.I. this season...a bit too much of a love fest with the judges, but still entertaining....
