American Idol 8: The Uprooted Plant

Hey gang - I will have an exciting recap of last night's 2-hour extravaganza of people walking down halls and sitting in chairs a little later, but I just wanted to make this announcement first...

The L.A. Times reported last night that Joanna Pacitti has been disqualified. AI has replaced her with former beauty queen, and one of last night's cut contestants, Felicia Barton.

Idol spokespeople said that the decision was made to "avoid the appearance of impropriety." Yes, it was the "appearance" of the impropriety they were concerned about. Not the actual impropriety, otherwise she never would have been picked for the show in the first place.

Too bad, Joanna. I'm sure American Idol will give you a lovely parting gift, like money for you to make another crappy album that won't sell. If not, there's always this...

She seemed like a great singer (not that we could really tell since they always showed her forgetting the lyrics), but her lame personality and constant tears would have become old, like, oh wait! They already had.

God, I'm bitchy today.

words words words said...

Wow...this is actually a little step in the right direction. Who woulda thunk it?

Red, it's not possible to be too bitchy about this chick. I wonder how many chances she would have gotten if she didn't look like that.

Also, does anyone else wonder if Mishavonna Henson is related to John Henson, late of Talk Soup? They look EXACTLY alike.

it's unfathomable that they cut so many decent singers from that group in favor of that wack job bitchy chick at the end. SHE. SUCKED.

So glad they got rid of her, but ridiculous timing. And they should have brought back Jamar. I don't even really remember who Felicia is.

Does Tatiana remind anyone else of Isla Fisher's character from the Wedding Crashers? God, I seriously hope that is an act!

All respect I had for Wayne Brady just went out the window.

She was a great hummer...maybe she can build on that skill!

Red, you're not bitchy. I'm with you. The first time I saw her cry I was like, "Oh how sweet, this means a lot to her." But by last night I was saying, "They let the effing cry baby through who can't remember the words? Pfft... I'm done with this stupid show."

Tatiana always looks like she has ants crawling in her panties the way she jumps around and is annoying.


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.
