So have just finished watching a-MER-ican Idol and I have chosen my Top Two males:
And my Soon-To-Be-Voted-Off Males:
So what was up with Paula this evening? And Simon? I know, I know. They've done this for seven years and Simon has f**cking had it with hack jobs, karaoke nighters and cheesy Love Boat lounge singers who waste their time and the audience's time - and I couldn't agree more. David and Michael's performances were honest and you instantly felt them, man! Also Jason Castro, whose song, though a teensy bit cutesy for me, was sincere and a good performance. So when we get half-assed performances, well, those guys get sucker-punched into oblivion. Bye Garrett and Luke!
As for Paula, jeez, woman, drink that Coke! When Randy Jackson becomes more articulate than you, even with language choked with dawgisms and "man" and "yo", then there's something a little off. Although people have often wondered if drugs are affecting her, I do not believe this is the case. For I myself have been close to incoherent for sustained periods of time, and it usually happens when I've spent too much time with the kids. I reckon she's exhausted from Hollywood week and should have had a longer lie down prior to the show.
When you're the nice guy on the show, and your modus operandi in life is to spread the love, sprinkle rainbow dust and have people feel warm and fuzzy no matter what, it must really up the blood pressure having to do that constantly for the seventh year in a row and to people who should be wowing your pants off by now. I'm surprised she isn't yet comatose and I golf-clap her for trying to keep it sweet.
Can't wait to see the girls!
