Last night, the top ten contestants on American Idol performed [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Billy Joel[/lastfm] songs.  I’ve told you before, I’m not a big fan of Idol.  But, I AM a big fan of Billy Joel.  So, I had to check it out.  Some were really good!  And, as usual, some were really…really bad.  I’ve got video on the next page.

[photogallerylink id=16591 align=left]But, did you find it interesting that [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Diddy[/lastfm] was on the show…and NOT Billy Joel?  The “Piano Man” has spoken openly about American Idol in the past, and it wasn’t too flattering.

Here was the first performance last night.  Not spectacular.  But, I’ve heard worse…

“New York State Of Mind” isn’t the easiest song to do.  I was impressed by this.

“Movin’ Out” is also known as Anthony’s Song.  Will it now be known as Phillip’s song?  We’ll see…

Boy…this dude’s sure full of spunk, isn’t he?

I’m not sure “Honesty” is the song I would choose for national TV.  Did she handle it well?

Last song of the night…no surprise…Piano Man!
