The choice of OMD songs probably isn't the most PC for a competition which is supposed to celebrate people from all over the world competing in sports.... Enola Gay is the plane that dropped the A-Bomb on Hiroshima.

The song that probably would've got the best reaction from an idol audience is Diet Mountain Dew, but since Idol is sponsored by Coke, she wouldn't be allowed to sing it.

Perhaps it's Schadenfreude, but I think it's odd that we are even having a conversation about her. Rather then constantly talk about her album, it should probably just be ignored. It's her first album. Plenty of people put out bad first albums, and they are never heard from. But they are rarely talked about in the first place. If someone puts out a great album, and becomes popular, and then they put out a bad album, that is something that merits discussion. "How could someone who put out such an awesome album, now put out such crap?" In this case, it probably should be the record label we are criticizing, and not Lana Del Rey. They obviously put a lot of money and marketing muscle behind an unproven product. I see big ads for her album as I walk down 6th avenue,and the amount of hype behind her is something she couldn't possibly live up to. It would be like a Major League Baseball team picking some kid out of little league, and throwing him in the starting lineup. It's not his fault he struck out. The team should've never put him out there in the first place.

The wolves realized that they wouldn't be able to turn the music off, and would be forced to listen to creed while eating dinner. They just said f it, not worth it.
