Letters to Idols

Dear Luke Menard: (“Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go” – Wham!) Dude, don’t sing Wham! ever again. Seriously. I think you’re going to be voted off the island.

Dear David Archuleta: (“Another Day In Paradise” – Phil Collins) I think you’re wicked amazing, but at some point you’re going to have to pick something up-tempo. (Ooh, Simon agreed with me! The boy needs a caffeine buzz.)
