Sound Bite of the Week

"I wouldn't be so quick to congratulate him. Number one, two people are going home next week now. Second piece of bad news -- Next week. It's disco week.
-Simon Cowell (on last night's Idol after tears and cheers when Matt got saved.)

Ay-ca-rum-ba. Why do I have a disturbing inkling that Lil might rock this genre? (But I have also thought this about "Songs From The Year You Were Born," "Mo-Town," and "I-Tunes." So maybe everything will be okay after all.)
P.S. How cute is Kris Allen in this pic? Or how cute were all the Idols for that matter when they rallied around Matt, seeming genuinely happy for him and not worried that the "Save" is no longer?

  1. Heheheh...Simon was an instant buzz-kill with that one. If Lil doesn't rock 'em (can you say that for Disco???) with that genre, she really should be gone... Have a good day... ~J~

    P.S. Still wish Matt would do something with that Mountain on his forehead... is distracting as all hell...

  2. for some reason my response didn't post when i wrote it earlier (ha! i can't even figure out my own blog!)
    yes. those were probably two of the most classic lines to ever be spoken on idol.
    and while this genre seems like it should come on a silver platter, given her failure rate, she'll find a way to bomb it.
    and it probably doesn't have to be said, but i'll take the boil over the you-know-what anyday.
    now disco . . . hmmmmm. it should be interesting. predictions to come. :)

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…
