The Duel 2: Birthdays, Brawls and Banishments

The Duel 2 aired last night on MTV, and alls I gots to say is, could somebody please invite me to one of the birthday soirees they always seem to have on these challenges?! I mean, do they typically pack orange wigs, skull gloves, Pocahontas gear and skin tight body suits (um, hello? Landon anyone?) in their suitcases just in case? If so, I want in!

This season of the Duel has already promised us all the juicy goodness we have come to expect from these challenges. Within the first 8 minutes, crazy Brooke is making out in the hot tub with not one but two guys, and, um, did I mention these guys were gay? Incredible Hulk CT proves yet again to be a complete mad man that even a team of 4 huge guys (plus the producers) can't stop! Hell, even silly things like walls couldn't stop this guy, as he punched his way through, thirsting after shrimpy Adam like a wolverine who hasn't seen his dinner in two days. "I will smash his head and EAT it." I kid you not. Those were his words. And for some strange reason, I think CT means these words quite literally. Mmmm. May I suggest a nice glass of Chianti to go with that head CT?

These people are a bunch of nut jobs and I love it! CT and Adam are already gone, but we still have overall-wearin' Isaac who can be chock-full of surprises. I wonder if he'll see black birds here in New Zealand like he did in Sydney ... And just what is up with that opening sequence?! Holy canoli that thing is bizarre. And are you hoping as much as I am to see Paula go down in flames just like she did on The Island? She still is talking like a total dude after all. Feel free to chime in below!

American Idol Results: Adam Lambert PERFORMS!!! Oh yeah, and There Was a Double Elimination.

Okay, guys, here we go with the Idol results.  Am I the only one who is sick of these results show intro package fake-outs?  You know, wherein they try and make us believe like there were Holyfield vocal TKOs last night?  (Cut to a judge exclamatory:  "Yo, those vocals were hot!!"  Then cut to Andrew Garcia holding a mic that looks as if it just turned gold right before our very eyes.)  Um, am I living in some crazy Harry Potter land?  Because I'm pretty sure this does not accurately reflect what went down on performance night at all.  But then again, I guess if they show what really went down, it would not pump me, the viewer, up.  Unlike those high voltage group sings ... those aren't watered down or lip sunk at all.  Oh what's that?!  Ms. Sleepy Weird-Eyed Gal Herself, Brooke White, and some dude I've never heard of are set to sing tonight?!!!  Well somebody better hold me back! 

Okay okay.  Who peed in my Fruity Pepples, right?  I am excited to see Adam …

American Idol Inspirational Song Night: Crystal Bowersox Cries. I Finally Feel Something. (Recap)

Considering I kept busy on my computer all the while Idol played out tonight on my TV screen, only giving the occasional glance up to notice that Lee Dewyze got his hairs cut, Kara got her hairs styled in a flattering manner that I can't quite put my finger on as to why they were so flattering and Simon's buzz cut looked especially unflattering ... I guess you could say it was all one big unnoticeable snooze fest until Crystal "Mamasox" Bowersox took the stage. So really, all I care about commenting on is her for now.

Wicked Mic Stands and Wet Eyes: Now I don't know if Crystal got overly wrapped up in the spirit of today's date, but someone should have told her pot paraphernalia is not allowed on the Idol stage. Oh, I keed. I keed. Crystal's extraordinary mic stand was made from an old lamp with which she always used to perform in her pre-Idol days. Could that sentimentality be what brought on her sudden outburst of tears at the end of her emotional "…

American Idol: R & B Night ... What a Difference an Usher Makes!

Well three cheers for Usher, is alls I got to say about last night's American Idol, R & B Night. If only all of them would have heeded the advice of the sunglassed one, it may have been a perfect night. But alas, Tim Urban remains unchanged, and so I'll settle for a vastly improved night instead.
Usher on Lee: Believe in Yourself. Although he may think he still belongs in the paint shop, Lee Dewyze really has a shot at winning this whole shin dig. Oh, simply the song title alone "Treat Her Like a Lady" mixed in with that gritty voice = one hot and bothered Elizabeth. You can treat me like a lady, Lee. Any ol' time. (Okay, sorry if just made anyone feel uncomfortable there.) Usher and I just ask one thing of you: Believe in yourself! Simon told you this may be the night your life changes forever, yet I still think you will come out next week with the ever present look of fear in those glistening baby blues. Not to mention, your desire to eat your guitar pick ri…
