I dreamt last night that I was in the audience for this week's American Idol. It was not on the usual stage - I think it was the stage at Pioneer High School. The judges weren't there, but I guess they were watching it on TV and would call in their comments.

I was only able to see the first contestant before I woke up. John Stevens came out in a yellow bell-bottomed suit with a ruffly orange shirt and was surrounded by a pack of children who were supposed to chase him around the stage like adoring fans as he sang "Tenderness" by General Public. Given the 70s decor and the 80s music, I have no idea what the theme was supposed to be, but it may have been Sing Like You're On Crack because while John sang very well, he also danced all over the stage, which is quite uncharacteristic of him.

I couldn't decide whether the judges would like it, because he sang well and was full of energy this week, or whether they would hate it because it was manic and full of screaming children ripping his jacket off and because WHY THE HELL was he wearing that horrible bell-bottomed suit? Paula called in, but I was too busy trying to figure out where she was (and then realizing that she had a tinny-phone-sound in her voice and that she wasn't there at all) to hear what she had to say.

If John Stevens really sings "Tenderness" in a yellow bell-bottomed suit this week, I will first be shocked and awed because I am psychic and I will vow only to use my powers for good. Second, I will throw up.

Could you use your powers for the good of dreaming that I will marry Ewan McGregor? Because that would be just daaaaaandy.
