It's American Idol Time Again

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is the theme of the night. Very broad selections there. Nobody should have trouble finding songs that fit them.

David C – First up. He’s doing Duran Duran’s ‘Hungry Like the Wolf” (Duran Duran is in the HOF?!) This song is from my college days. It bit then and still reeks. I actually like his version better than Duran Duran. Randy and Simon think it’s just ok. Paula is now hungry like a wolf and wants a David Cook entrĂ©e. Guess she has switched her love interest from David A to David C. She must have realized David A was jail bait and she was looking at doing 5-10 the hard way. (Duran Duran is in the HOF?!)

For his second song,The Chosen One II is doing a Who song. Baba O’Riley. Or what I call Teenage Waste Land. Very mellow but decent vocals. Now he’s picking it up a bit. I don’t really care for him as a performer but he has the best pipes out of the group. Randy gives it a great. Paula wants more and more David Cook and loves his soul?! Hey did you guys know Duran Duran is in the Rock HOF? I got to look that up.

Syesha – is next and doing ‘Proud Mary’ by Tina Turner. She’s no Tina Turner. I hope she changes it around some or the judges will compare her to Tina…and not favorably. (Duran Duran is in the HOF?!) It starts out kinda slow and then she kicks it. Girl should be on Broadway doing musicals. Randula likes her. Simon not so much. Calls it shrieky. Is that really a word? Did you know Duran Duran is in the HOF?! Simon also calls it a bad imitation of Tina Turner – told ya so.

Her second song is Sam Cooke’s ‘A Change is Gonna Come’. She looks great. But she’s about to spill out of her dress. That should get her a few extra votes. (Duran Duran is in the HOF?!) The song is kinda boring but she sings it ok. Randy says no. Paula loves her and is hugging herself. Simon actually likes it. She’s bawling…she must be channeling Nanny Brooke.

Jason – Natty Dread has picked Marley’s (what a shock) ‘I Shot the Sheriff’. Um, one word Lame. (Duran Duran is in the HOF?!). Randy doesn’t like it. Paula even doesn’t like it but loves Jason. Simon calls it atrocious. Jason is obviously playing to the young girls that keep voting for him each week and hoping to get by on his prettiness.

Jason’s second song is Dylan’s ‘Mr Tamborine Man’. Dylan’s one of my boys, he better not butcher it. Opps he forgets some lines and hums them. Ok well it’s much better than the first song but that isn’t saying much. Randy doesn’t like it. Paula isn’t crazy about it but ‘Jason blows her away’. I have no idea what she is talking about. Simon tells him to start packing. I agree there can’t be that many 12 year-old girls out there to keep him on the show, can there? Although he his pretty. Even prettier than The Donk.

David A – Baby Elmo is singing ‘Stand by Me’ by Ben E. King. I’m sure he will do fine and the judges will be licking his boots, so to speak. But I can’t even bring myself to look at the insincere phony. (Duran Duran is in the HOF?!). Randula lusts after him. Simon loves him too. Duh! He’s The Chosen One.

David’s second song is The Kings ‘Love Me Tender’. Pardon me while I go hurl in advance of this song. Ok I’m back. What did I miss? Oh Duran Duran is in the Rock Hall of Fame? You don’t say. Every song he does is exactly the same. Fat Elvis must be rolling over in his grave. He’s taken a sexy song and neutered it. What a shock the Judges love him. Paula feels his heart. Is this show fixed?

and one more thing... there is NOTHING prettier than the DONK... ok, maybe your calves, BUT THATS IT!!!!!!!!!

Please avoid abbreviation like HOF. It took me time to realize what it means. You're in the International Blog Web, mind poor Latin readers! Always behind the TV screen.
"fixed", do you mean rigged? Sorry, but I'm not a native englsh.

Quite the disappointing night. "Dreadlock Boy" better get the boot tonight.

Cris said...

you were in college when "Hungry like a wolf" was out? Man... I was in the 6th grade.

Hey-I heard an ad on the radio the other day for some gym. The guy was named Rob and he had 6 kids... I thought it was you!

It makes perfect sense that DD was in HOF. They helped usher in New Wave...a musical style that, along with Ronald Reagan in White House, made the 80's so much fun to live in. I was in high school when it came out, and madly in love with the bass guitar player.

I agree about Jason. I personally really like his folky style, but I think he's actually been wanting to get off the show. He seemed really happy last night to get the boot.

But David A makes us just nuts. The only reason why he is still there is because of the unlimited texting given to way too many 13 year old girls. Why are the judges so flipping in love with the kid? I don't get it. My husband and I see him as the love child of Yanni and John Tesh, with his uncles being Kenny G and Zamfir.

You have a very funny blog.

I think if we all looked really deeply into our innermost selves, we'd realize we are all Duran Duran fans at heart.
