It's Gwen Stefani night on "American Idol" — but that doesn't mean we'll be suffering through renditions of "Hollaback Girl" and "Underneath It All" (though the idea of Sanjaya singing "Underneath It All" makes me giggle). Word is that the 10 remaining contestants will be performing songs by artists who have inspired Stefani. Some have speculated that the theme will bring lots of ska and new wave, but given that Stephanie said she would have done a song by Cyndi Lauper, Prince, or Donna Summer if she hadn't been voted off, it sounds like a broad selection.
Also, I hope someone lets LaKisha up front the next time the "Idol" contestants gather in a group. Look at the poor girl straining to see Gwen Stefani in that picture. Everyone else looks delighted; LaKisha looks like she's about to say "Hey, guys, I can't see!" Plus, who knew Sanjaya was so tall?
Remember, "Idol" is running seven minutes long tonight, so set your TiVo accordingly.
