Video: Kris Allen Performs “Heartless” On American Idol

By 05.13.09

In the Gotty™ household, everyone except Gotty™ watches American Idol. Around dinner time, the television switches to the show and I switch rooms.

I won’t front like I don’t listen to it because the sounds of classics being alternately butchered & beautified waft their way upstairs. So when I heard Kanye’s tune come on during last night’s broadcast, my brain signals got jumbled & I thought “Oh, it’s just his ‘Amazing’ commercial.” Then I realized, a.) that commercial would’ve been on during a basketball game and b.) the sound I heard wasn’t “Amazing” but instead “Heartless.” I end up coming back downstairs to listen and watch because Idol contestant Kris Allen does a dandy with Kanye’s tune.

Although Simon & crew didn’t ask me but weaving in some of today’s music is a wise move. Even though the ratings are good, they’ve dropped a little and I think this is their way of getting people back. Allowing current music is good because contestants are trying to win American Idol 2009. Not American Idol the 60′s, 70′s and 80′s.

If that’s their goal, it worked because it lured me, if only for a few minutes.
