Idol Does Stones

IDOL GETS STONED: Last night’s American Idol was dedicated to the Rolling Stones songbook. In case you neglected to TiVo it, here are the pairings of contestants and songs: Didi Benami, “Play With Fire”; Aaron Kelly, “Angie”; Crystal Bowersox, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want”; Michael Lynche, “Miss You”; Casey James, “It’s All Over Now”; Katie Stevens, “Wild Horses”; Paige Miles, “Honky Tonk Woman”; Lee DeWyze, “Beast of Burden”; Andrew Garcia, “Gimme Shelter”; Tim Urban, “Under My Thumb”; Lacey Brown, “Ruby Tuesday”; and Siobhan Magnus, “Paint It Black.” In her Pop & Hiss wrap-up, Ann Powers rates Magnus’ performance highest, saying she approached her selection as “an Evanescence song: drama-drenched and full of the clear high notes that signal greatness in a female hard rock voice. The judges loved her, rightly; she was one of the few strivers to express the complexities of her song, milking its morbidity with enough theatrical flair to show she understood that Jagger’s Dark Prince swagger was always just another role.” (3/17a)
