:: More Idols head to Broadway—Jordin Sparks will appear in Tony-winning musical In The Heights for a 12-week run. Why doesn’t American Idol just tape in New York so contestants can go straight from the show directly into a Broadway theatre? [Just Jared]

:: Do you want Lee DeWyze to be your next American Idol? Take a listen to his pre-Idol tunes and judge whether or not Lee’s got the chutzpah to be a successful recording artist. (He does a Marilyn Manson cover, which would be perfect for a Goth/Metal theme week.) [Top Idol]

:: Siobhan Magnus was planning on singing the Sid Vicious version of Frank Sinatra’s “My Way” for this week’s Sinatra theme. Whether she killed or got killed, it would have been one incredibly entertaining performance. [Idol Tracker]

:: After the jump, watch Siobhan play piano while performing Beyoncé’s “Halo” in the If I Can Dream house. (Why didn’t they have a Beyoncé-theme week when Siobhan was on the show? So many missed opportunities.)
