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: Rat Pack Night "Sways" My Opinions

Well our Top 5 performed the Rat Pack Standards last night, and when it was all said and done, I must say . . . I felt a little swayed. I have to use the word "swayed," first of all, because it's my clever pun on a popular song during the Rat Pack era; and secondly, because the night didn't make me into a full-blown convert -- it simply swayed me, like a gentle yet confused little branch blowing in the wind, unsure if it wants to waver on back to the safe side of "Adam & Simon," or dare to venture and possibly snap on over to the unfamiliar side of "Danny & Kara."

Sway Factor #1: Jamie Foxx is a rockin' mentor! Who ever would have thought that Mr. Foxx would mentor Rat Pack night?! Turns out, he did a kick ass job! Getting all up in Danny Gokey's grill, refusing to let "D" (nickname compliments of Mr. Foxx) detour from his emotions. Channeling "Field of Dreams" and telling Matt Giraud, "if you change the ke…

Idol: I-Tune Down Loads Equals Big Let Down

Well, as speculated, it was the Top I-Tunes Downloads theme on Idol tonight, allowing for something more 'current.' But the whole night, with a few exceptions, proved to be a big let down.
Let Down #1:Allison's outfit and Edward Scissorhands' hairdo. Even Randy couldn't wait to get through the positive comments to ask, "What is up with the outfit?!" We all know Allison's voice is amazing, so I have to focus on the question that still begs to be answered: Just what has the 'Glam Squad' done to her? Please. De-glam my Allison at once and give her back to me a-la 'Alone' days! But they won't do this, and you know why? Because it wouldn't be right if we had an unknown early front runner who didn't have the help of a producer pimp-out be allowed to shine. Oh no. We have to allow Simon tell her that she 'shouted the song'! WTF?!! Chopped locks + Fourth Slot + Insane Critiques + Mustache Doodles = SABOTAGE!
Let Down #2:Matt …

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 "…
