It’s a good thing that Guns N’ Roses and Velvet Revolver guitarist Slash is into social networking, because we keep getting these little tidbits on information on his mentor bit for Rock Week. All week, Slash has been helping out the top four Idol contestants Adam Lambert, Allison Iraheta, Kris Allen, and Danny Gokey. At first, Slash was reluctant about taking up the mentoring task, but he finally jumped on board when the producers gave him the freedom to do whatever he wants.
Slash Twittered that, “The contestants from AI picked some really cool songs for next week, thank god!” and that “Those AI kids can sing their asses off, especially Adam.” Apparently, the song list includes classic rock hits from the 70′s and 80′s. And because the judges wanted a new twist to the show, the contestants will be doing solos and duets, rather than two solo songs. Hmmm, sounds like we’re in for some trainwreck performances tomorrow evening.
Slash adds that, “Next week should prove to be very interesting.” Interesting in a good way or a bad way I can’t say, but either way it should be a fun show!
