Neil night on Idol is finally here.

I really wish it had happened earlier in the season so that I could have heard Michael Johns rock out with Mr. Diamond, but hey, I'll take what I can get.

Here's a recap of my requests:

David Cook
: "Cracklin' Rose" or "Brother Love's Travelin' Salvation Show," rocker style
David Archuleta: please, PLEASE don't do one of the soulful ballads like "Hello Again," "I Am, I Said," or "Heartlight." How about "Forever in Blue Jeans"?*
Syesha: "You Don't Bring Me Flowers"
Brooke: "Song Sung Blue"
Jason Castro: "America" or "Shilo." Or "Red, Red Wine."

I had pegged Michael Johns for "Sweet Caroline," but since he's no longer on the show (stooopid voters!), I think that would also be a good choice for David A.

Neil is the summer concert at Fenway Park this year, on August 23. John's and my four-year anniversary is August 14. Tickets to Neil might just be my anniversary present to myself.

wow! no comments! I'm the first? Well, I'd sooo go w/you to sing cheesey Neil Diamond songs....
Am I the only one who loved "Jazz Singer"?

Definitely think that you should go with the Anniversary present idea!!

I can't even tell you how excited I am. I hope all of your predictions come true on the show...that would be awesome. And I really hope David Archuleta doesn't sing a soulful ballad, but I'm kind of betting he will.

Maybe it can be a book club outing :).

Tickets are available for $94.50 (!) on Ticketmaster . . .

OMG I SO wanna see Neil in concert. The last time he was in my area that I know about, was the day after I got out of the hospital with my last child... in 1996. I know I was NOT up to sitting on bleachers then, but oh how I wanted to.

I think you SHOULD go to the concert. Regardless of the cost. I hear he does an awesome concert... only complaints I've ever heard were due to the acoustics of the stadium, since he generally plays in VERY large areas like sports arenas.

And I have gotta find time to watch American Idol tonight. Wonder what the chances of that are! LOL
