"American Idol" is about to cut to 11 finalists on St. Patrick's Day after everyone sang music from the Rolling Stones -- so of course the intro song they pick is the Everly Brothers, "All I Have to Do is Dream."
Ryan Seacrest is just standing over Simon Cowell, staring at him. They have a back-and-forth, ends with them shaking hands and Simon saying "we're friends, right? Now back off."
David Cook then gets things started with"Jumping Jack Flash." He was one of my favorite contestants ever, really started the trend of creative, clever interpretations of songs. Just plain rocks on the song, lot of energy and stage presence and totally makes it his own.
