American Idol Chatter

comment
After watching last night's video footage of American Idol contestants at Graceland, we just have one question: Where was Lisa Marie? The king’s daughter was nowhere to be seen, despite reliable reports that she was there, along with mom Priscilla and the four Idol finalists (who will be winnowed down to three after Wednesday night’s announcement of fan voting).

Our scores: Elliot Yamin schleps all the way up to A+ for “If I Can Dream” and “Trouble;” Taylor Hicks gets a B- for “Jailhouse Rock” and “In the Ghetto;” “Chris Daughtry a C+ for “Suspicious Minds” and “A Little Less Conversation;” and Katherine McPhee a D for off-center/over-the-top renditions of a “Hound Dog/All Shook Up” medley and “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
