We're getting ready for Idol 2009!
Buzz Aldrin was just here for National Geographic, talking about a show called "Live From the Moon," but the afternoon's most endearing celeb is Georgia, one of the 22 fighting dogs rescued from Atlanta Falcons quarterback Michael...
Well, that was a surprise, wasn't it? I mean I had predicted in this space that David Cook would prevail but I assumed the margin of victory would be closer. 12 million votes? That's a landslide.
But the victory for Cook was well-deserved...
Well, that was a surprise, wasn't it? I mean I had predicted in this space that David Cook would prevail but I assumed the voting margin would be far closer. 12 million votes? That's a landslide.
And well deserved, judging by the contrastin...
I'm guessing we all agree that Fox waaaaaay overdid the boxing match metaphor last night as the two Davids faced off for the penultimate episode of American Idol.
But it was nice to have Jim Lampley there to add his, um, bromid
...but I'm pretty sure that won't matter to the millions who even now are making Little David Archuleta the next "American Idol."
David Cook? He leaves with his integrity intact, unwilling to repeat himself just to win the right...
So dude, dude, listen up. How do we create two American Idols of equal, album-selling strength this year? Tell you what. We push and shove David Archuleta into the winner's circle, no matter how
Don't you love Andrew Lloyd Weber? No? "They've got to sing it as if it's their very, very last night on the show," he observes. Master of the obvious, he's ready for a judge's chair.
"The World I Know"? How many other...
Was Cook's guitar hooked up? Don't matter, Dog, 'cause he was singing his face off. Redundant Randy can still be cool.
Archie stunk up the joint. That song could be his downfall.
Whoever wins, I'm excited about that "Fringe&q
How can they never have been in the bottom three, if there are only two left? And is it wrestling or boxing? Isn't supposed to be singing?
You wouldn't mistake David Cook for Bono.
And you wouldn't mistake Paula for anybody anybody pay
This kind of overblown self-importance, "the biggest showdown in show-biz history," is one of the main things that has been turning people off this season. It's neither the biggest, nor the best.
Can anybody even stand it? Will 8 p.m. never come?
Unless you are a resident of Sarasota, you're probably neither surprised nor upset at last night's results: the dismissal of Syesha Mercado.
In fact, most of America (or at least the portion that didn't tune out during this long, lackl
Let's talk merit for once, shall we?
Who shone like Patti LuPone last night?
I think the clear winner was David Cook, who nailed two out of three. His range surprised me on the Roberta Flack chestnut "First Time Ever I Saw Your Fa
I'm gonna miss you Syesha. Really.
You came on slow and cute, girl (loved that earthy, natural hair do and demeanor to match) and chased some seemingly brighter lights down the field. But then when they
Didn't they look great together last night, our final four? Singing "Reelin' in the Years" with that marching band choreography. This is how I want to remember them. Gee, mommy, can't we keep them all. Pleaaaase?
No, life is
Yep, it's 9:55 when Ryan finally hauls the bottom two back to the stage.
And though there's a bad moment when Ryan tries to fake out Syesha, it's Jason who's outta here.
He may be an airhead, but even Jason saw thi
The Other David also makes it to the couch, so the drama is, as you knew it would be, between Jason and Syesha.
