On tonight's episode of American Idol
, the nine remaining contestants will perform selections from the Lennon/McCartney songbook, which obviously means any Beatles song that wasn't written by George or, haha, Ringo. You hear that Tim Urban? No "Octopus's Garden" for you. Anyway, I suppose there's a chance Sir Cool Dude himself over there on the right will show up as a mentor, but it seems unlikely.
In other Idol news, a couple of Crystal Bowersox's old original compositions were unearthed today, and hooboy, I imagine Joan Osbourne's lawyers will be getting in touch very soon.
