Paul McDonald's idol is Bryan Adams. For a nanosecond, I wonder if Paul is Canadian and/or fond of movie ballads, because, while I quite enjoy Bryan Adams and have several heavenly ("Heaven"ly, get it?) teenaged memories of his songs, I don't get idol worship from him. Then Paul specifies that his idol is Ryan Adams, with an R. Oh yeah, Ryan Adams, the British guy who spends all his time telling people that he's not Bryan Adams. So. Ryan Adams, "Come Pick Me Up." Paul is wearing a black and red military jacket, which made me think his idol would be Chris Martin, but I was wrong. I don't know this song, it's not the peppiest of pop songs but I like its attitude. Paul is still wobbling, hopping and skipping all over the stage. Steven Tyler loves the raspy voice, says that it doesn't matter whose song he sings, the voice always makes it a Paul song. Then he asks Paul to sing a little more in key next time. Jennifer says the audience was smiling. She hopes America "gets" it, "I don't know Ryan Adams or that song." "You should!" says Paul, in an eager, you-should-totally-check-out-this-awesome-singer way, not in a snobby how-could-you-not-know-Ryan-Adams-with-an-R way. Randy Jackson loves the character of Paul. He has also done his homework (Idol Season 10 The Remix ™ Randy Jackson is here to educate us) and talks about the niche of Wilco and the Traveling Wilburys, two groups that I'm quite sure have never been mentioned on this show before. This makes me grateful for Paul McDonald and Randy Jackson, because they're telling the People of America that it's okay to move on from Diana Ross and Celine Dion ballads. It really is! Then Ryan comes out and tries to copy Paul's dancing, it involves a lot of falling down and twitching.
