She is a big red dot...(with hooters)...let’s hope she can sing
Hi mark was here, gettlng ready to go out. Talk to you tomrrow.
Sounds like Roseanne at a all you can eat buffet.
Soooooooooo Why does the BIGGUN look like a bag lady in her rehearsal? (that’s rhetorical) but gees...some of these people dress like they didnt get the Sunday paper insert announcing the latest sale at Kohls!
THis gal (so far tonight) is in my “YOu gotta be kidding me...just get off the stage and go home” list
I didn’t think she looked horrible in rehearsals and I don’t think she’s that huge, BUT that red dress is so unflattering.
Girls with hips and jugs can’t wear those types of dresses because they look like maternity dresses.
What’s with the blondes wearing man hats this season. Ugh.
>> Everything this guy sings sounds like “Old Man River.”<<
Stan Freberg - Elderly Man River Lyrics
Artist: Stan Freberg
Genre: Adult Contemporary
Freberg: Just kidding, just kidding. But it’s great to be with you tonight. We have a special—
Tweedly: Pardon me, Mr. Freberg, but my name is Tweedly.
Freberg: Well, we all have our problems.
Tweedly: I am the censor from the citizens radio committee. And, um... I feel—
Freberg: You uh... from the citizens radio committee, you say?
Tweedly: That’s exactly what I said, yes. I—
Freberg: And what is your purpose in being here?
Tweedly: I must okay all the material used on your program here, and I think the best method is to just sit back here and interrupt when I feel it’s necessary.
Freberg: You mean you plan to stop me every time I do something that YOU think is wrong?
Tweedly: Exactly. I’ll just sound my little horn like this (buzzer). And then you stop, and I’ll tell you what’s wrong.
Freberg: Uh, somehow I can tell this is gonna be one of those days.
Tweedly: You just go right ahead, Mr. Freberg. Don’t mind me.
Freberg: Yeah, now I’d like to sing— (buzzer)
Tweedly: You forgot to say “thank you”, Mr. Freberg. Politeness is an essential in radio programming. Your program goes into the home, we must be a good influence on... children.
Freberg: Why, that’s a darling little horn there.
Freberg: Thanks very much, Mr. Tweedly.
Tweedly: You’re welcome, I’m sure.
Freberg: I’d like to sing a old river song in honor of this week of National Mississippi Riverboat Paddlewheel Week. Mr., may I, if you please?
Tweedly: Very polite, Mr. Freberg.
Freberg: Thank you.
Old man river, that old— (buzzer)
All right, Tweedly, politeness I dig, but what in the world is wrong with “old man river”?
Tweedly: The word “old” has a connotation that some of the more elderly people find distasteful. I would suggest you make the substitution, please.
Freberg: I suppose you insist.
Tweedly: Precisely. You may continue.
Freberg: Okay, music (buzzer).
Tweedly: You forgot to say—
Freberg: Thank you, yes, okay. Thank you, Mr. Tweedly.
Tweedly: You’re quite welcome, I am sure.
Elderly man river, that elderly man river.
He must know somethin’, but he don’t say nothin’. (buzzer)
All right, hold it, fellas. Now what, Tweedly?
Tweedly: The word “something”, you left off the G.
Freberg: But that’s authentic. “Somethin’,” “someTHIN’”. That’s the way the people... talk down there.
Tweedly: I’m sorry. The home is a classroom, Mr. Freberg.
Freberg: I know, you said that.
Tweedly: Keep in mind the tiny tots. And... But furthermore, think back. You’ll recall that you said “but he don’t say nothin’”.
Tweedly: Now, really, Mr. Freberg, that’s a double negative.
Do you mean he DOES say something?
Freberg: No, I just wasn’t using my head, I guess.
Tweedly: I mean, after all, it should be grammatically correct, keeping in mind—
Freberg: The tiny tots, yes.
Tweedly: You probably mean he doesn’t say anything.
Freberg: I don’t— I suppose I mean that, yes, I guess. All right, uh fine, you win. All right, Billy, music (buzzer). Thank you, thank you.
Tweedly: You’re welcome, I’m sure.
Elderly man river, that elderly man river
He must know something, but he doesn’t say anything
He just keeps rollin’— rolling,
He just keeps rolling along.
He don’t (buzzer) doesn’t plant taters— potatoes,
He doesn’t plant cotton/cotting,
And then these/those that plants them are soon forgotting.
But elderly man river, he just keeps rolling along.
Freberg: Thank you.
You and me— (buzzer)
The uh, the tiny tots again, was it?
Freberg: Sorry about that, here we go.
You and I; we sweat, (buzzer) perspire and strain
Body’s all aching and wracked with pain. Well, we got by that one.
Tote that barge, lift that bail!
You get a little... [he slows down and stops here, since the rest of it is “drunk and you land in jail”.]
Okay, take your finger off the button, Mr. Tweedly. We know when we’re licked. Well, that concludes “Elderly Man River” (buzzer). Oh, yes, and thank you for being with us, Mr. Tweedly.
Tweedly: You’re welcome, I’m sure.
But she gives Jennifer goosies!
I wasn’t crazy about it either.
Randy’s pin looks stupid.
AND the cut of her dress made her upper arms look like she could be a defensive tackle for the Green Bay Packers!
I have a STFU list.
>>THis gal (so far tonight) is in my YOu gotta be kidding me...just get off the stage and go home list<<
I thought it was a “Crystal Light” commercial..
Today you are You, that is truer than true. There is no one alive who is Youer than You.
Her song choice is Whitney's "I Believe In You Me." She has a really full voice. Good choice for her. She's the first one tonight that I've stopped typing to watch.
The trained seals are waving their arms at the edge of the stage.
Good solid performance.
Randy: When you started it I was like "aw here she goes." Dude, don't think--you've got that unbelievable tone. Amazing!
J-Lo: I had goosies before you even started. Fullness of your voice makes songs come alive. I think you're playing it a little bit safe. Show people what's really in there.
Steven: Beautiful fantastic voice. It was perfect. I think you're great.
If it were a Chrystal Meth commercial...we would not be commenting about her large form ;-)
Hi, Bug! :)
The first few lines had me thinking, “Yeah! Yeah! Dude looks like a lady!”
Everyone gives Jennifer goosies. I’m beginning to think she has a goose in her pants.
I love it!
Good to see you again :)
Speaking of J-LO (commercial), did anyone see that Mexican idol thingy? It really pissed me off because it preempted Cops.
I didn’t watch it and I think most Norte Americanos didn’t either...
How about this Jennifer Lopez making a fortune? She’s got her own fashion line at Kohls. I could swear I saw her on a Target commercial but could be mistaken.
she’s also been in some makeup advertisements.
And serious, she possesses no great talent, beauty or intelligence. It is striking when the iron is hot I suppose.
Blige looks like she is going have a goose coaching the white boy...
As I sit here being snarky...I am flashing back to a scene in the late 50’s (shaddup, yes Im that old ;-) LOL) ANYWAY...my brother and I are being FORCED to watch Lawrence Welk on the old black and white Zenith at my grandparents...we are making fun of the “Champagne lady” as she sings some OPERA song...Gramps gets pissed at us kids for continually imerrupting ehr and making fun... and says “YOu sing it if you can do any better.......and without missing a beat my brother says...”I would, if I knew the words!” Gramps got quiet...then busted a gut laughing...
No, I didn’t watch it either. But I was also mad it pre-empted Cops, too.
I hate this guy’s hair.
Does Idol owe Adele money or something?
I am so behind on these threads but that is sooo funny!
Colton has some marbles in his mouth.
Skunk boy is singing in a WAY too “PAINED” way......
I am completely underwhelmed by the skunkboy
What’s worse ... the goosies or that hen cackle?!
>>I hate this guys hair.<<
My hair has looked like that all week. No more Supercuts...
Me too but you know the Ferlies will be voting for him like crazy.
I think I really like this! I especially like that he isn’t trying to sound like Stevie Wonder.
STeven Tyler looks like a sleepy spaniel.
OK....Randy says “by the last 8 bars you were good.......” Ummmmm RANDY....a SONG on a CD uis generally expected to be better than the last 8 bars.......Skunkboy needs to leave...he stinks!
I’m finally finished putting the laundry away (WHY does someone who hate to wear socks have so many pairs of them???) and finally got a good look at Randy. Okay really, man?? The whole thing is a mess! It’s like something from Willy Wonka’s closet.
(8 hours ago) Tonight is the night! Tell all of your friends and family to watch and vote! NO ONE is safe! love you all!
(19 hours ago) Tomorrow is the first performance since making top 13. Stevie Wonder/Whitney Houston week. Been a challenging week for me, but I think it'll pay off. Hope you guys enjoy tomorrow night! Be sure to vote!!!!
(Monday) For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes. -Romans 1:16
Sidenote: Colton dwarfs his competitors with over 23,000 "likes".
He sings Stevie Wonder's "Lately". Don't know this song. Fits his style.
Steven: Colton, man, that was outstanding. Beautiful. Well done.
J-Lo: You're probably one of the most challenged tonight with Stevie Wonder. (made it his own)
Randy: It wasn't picture perfect. Some notes that were flat, some notes that were sharp. When you hit your power point it was spot-on. By the end, you were flawless. You slayed it in the end. So dude, well done! Well done!
As much as I hate to admit it, all the contestants are getting really good advice from Blige and whoever this old gay dude is...
Skunk Boys legs don’t look like they belong on his body
I miss meth mouth
MOther of GOD< someone shoot those damned SEALS waving their arms!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Does anyone remember Multiples from the late 80’s? That’s what this girl’s belt top thing reminds me of.
She was off key alot wasn’t she?
