- Season 10's Stefano (I guess he dropped the Langone) returned to the Idol stage to perform his new single, "I'm on a Roll." Yeah, he's on a roll with extra cheese. Is he even on a real label? Everything about this screamed Ark Music Factory.
- Ford commercial, natch.
- I can't believe the show opened with a Queen tribute band fronted by a chubby Freddie Mercury semi-lookalike, which was actually endorsed by Brian May and Roger Taylor. Tribute bands are one of the worst things, period. If I had to rank terrible things, tribute bands would go somewhere between pickles and Nazis clubbing baby seals.
