Jennifer LopezGuess who I am:  I only have one Spanish-language album to my credit, yet American Idol has already deemed me a Latin-music afficionado.  If you guessed JLo—I mean Jennifer Lopez—then you’d be right.

IdolOkay – am I the only who thinks that Diana Ross is getting a lot of free publicity thanks to Dreamgirls?  The Oscars have already come and gone…yet thanks to American Idol, we’ll still be talking about her after tonight’s ‘theme’ show.

Yes, yes, yes…Diana Ross and The Supremes were a great group.  But are we really prepared to hear male interpretations of their songs?  And more importantly, we will have to endure Sanjaya singing Baby Love?
