The Beatles on American Idol

I've never been a big fan of American Idol, but what's the deal with them always honoring The Beatles? Last year they did a Sgt. Pepper tribute on the finale. This year they are doing not one, but two weeks of songs from the Lennon/McCartney songbook. Now, I don't have anything against it, but I'm just curious.

I watched some of the performances on last night and they were average. I thought some were better than others. Part of the problem is that people try to do too much with Beatles' songs. They try to put their own spin on them and it just doesn't work.

Look at David Archuleta last night. He bombed during his performance since he put this Stevie Wonder twist on "We Can Work It Out". Compare that to say Brooke White's "Let It Be" and my point is proven. She took "Let It Be" and just did the song with a lot of heart.

I'm not saying you have to sing them verbetum, but keep it simple. Or KISS (keep it simple stupid) as my old high school teacher used to say. The Beatles are the greatest band ever for a reason.
