American Idol Answers the Question: What's Worse Than a Medley?

Answer: A horribly cheesy group sing of a horribly cheesy disco-era song, Maxine Nightingale's "Right Back Where We Started From," made all the more cheesy by the most awful choreography that you've ever seen. There's good cheese and there's bad cheese, and this is like ten year-old Limburger. And like a ten-year old Red Hot Chili Peppers video, they actually forced David Cook and Michael Johns to do that annoying jumping chest-bump thing. Oh, my poor darling Michael. It's like I'm watching his soul die in slow motion. Can't they just let him sing? Must they turn everyone into a puppet?

Well, come to think of it, a Michael Johns puppet might not be such a bad thing. Better yet, a life-sized blow up doll.

Results coming up.....after....the......break(s).

Aaaah I was wondering what they were going to do for a medley this time around.
Sounds a heck of a lot worse than I expected.

Jeez! I forget you're not in my time zone and that you write while the show is on! Okay, so knowing about the medley is okay. We usually comment on the political aspect of things like who sings first, who's matched with whom, and who's in the back. Last week, it was rocker chick. And she was out. What can I say? We're entertained by stupid things.

I've developing a real fondness for Jason. I don't know if you noticed the goofy way he was jumping around the stage. It's like he was communicating "this is so fucking stupid that I just have to get into it."

The chest bump was awesome! I almost fell off my chair laughing! Jason doing his Davy Jones impersonation was too funny!


Who Does This Broad Think She Is?

My photo
I am a winsome muse who was sent to Earth to inspire an artist to turn a vacant building into the world's coolest disco roller rink. We fell in love along the way, and I foolishly gave up my immortality. When the disco craze ended and all the roller rinks were shut down, that lazy bum wouldn't get a job. We broke up and I was stuck on Earth with nothing to do and no one to inspire. So, now I write a blog.
