Irony is the enemy of the post-modern left(tm)
I have nothing more to say about that.
Kate’s going to do something about Sanjaya. Sort of.
From last night’s AI finale: they give this kid who couldn’t sing but showed up dressed as a Clay Aiken impersonator in the auditions a trophy for “Best Impersonation”, and then invited him to sing. While he was singing, the real Aiken comes out on stage, prompting the subject. Watch here. Even if you hate Idol, this is a hilarious clip.
If you’re watching the Idol finale tonight, c’mon over to Idol Tongues and join the live snark.
Now, I understand their wanting to make good TV and all, but there are lines and this is a bit overboard.
1) Bo Bice – Great voice even on bad material. I really don’t need to keep seeing his chest tattoo though.
2) Vonzell Solomon – A total sweetheart, with nice pipes. And she was working as a letter carrier in Miami!
3) Anthony Federov – He had an amazing, spectacular voice in his audition. And then he was mediocre all the way through last week, when he suddenly *cranked* on “Incomplete”, and he kept it up this week. I suspect alien abduction and replacement with Folger’s Crystals.
4) Carrie Underwood – Oklahoma’s country cutie not only lost all sense of pitch this week, she came off as mean and standoffish. I know she’s not really this bad, but now is not the time to fall off.
Remember, for live snark as the show airs, go here.
“Paula Abdul?” “WRONG!”.
This is a fantastic bit of satire. But the one commenter is delusional – Scotty the Hutt hasn’t hit a correct note in his life.
Seems Mario Vazquez quit American Idol because he, ya know, already has a record out. Whoops!
You know it’s a slow news day when Idol Judges Are Mean is a headline. Admittedly, Paula Abdul telling the truth was mildly shocking, but still.
The Iraqi government has an effective new weapon against the terrorists: reality TV. I say we send them Paris Hilton and her sidekick, or would that violate the Geneva conventions?
Mario quit American Idol today – his spot’s been replaced by Nikko, who was the most recent person voted off. No press release or anything, but idolonfox.com already reflects the change. Go figure.
Michele says it all. (Warning: picture of Mikalah Gordon through that link. Ewwww).
