Breaking News: Next Week’s Theme , Where Did Randy Go? and Simon vs. Kara?

One Idol website is reporting that next week will be the promised Motown Week. There is really no reason why this shouldn’t be a great show…which probably means it will be a trainwreck…

Also, I wanted to answer a question a commenter asked me about why Randy Travis left halfway through the show. Turns out it was not because his wife was offended by Adam’s performance, as I jokingly claimed.

According to, Randy left to get ready to tape his duet with Carrie Underwood of “I Told You So” that will air tonight… also reported that during the commercial break after Danny Gokey’s performance, Kara got in Simon’s face to continue their argument over which one of them was right in the verses vs. chorus argument. However, she only stepped up to Simon after Paula left the table. Hmmm…
