I like how Nikki and Mariah just don’t even pretend.
At least two more weeks of La la lazzzzzaro !
Decode of devins spanish singing
Save me or La Raza will get you all
So....Ho gave him the heave ho?
Devin, Urkel and Lazaro await their fate.
Urkel is safe. LOL, with no tact whatsoever, he runs over to the girls and does the happy dance.
Lazaro is safe!?
So going home is ...
He throws in some Spanish lyrics for his goodbye song. The judges huddle--well Keith and Randy huddle. They're probably asking each other where they'll go for dinner after the show.
Standing-o from three of the four judges. Minaj abstains.
Seacrest asks will they use the save?
Mariah for no reason, revs up the audience, getting them to chant, SAVE, SAVE, SAVE.
Randy: Honestly, Ryan. Unfortunately it is not unamimous. We won't use it.
And the Cuban lives to s-s-stutter another day.
Yup Ho gave him the heave Ho.on my ipad
Hello, Halftime Bug :)
Have a blessed Easter, Twin!
So....Ho gave him the heave ho?
The Heave Ho and No Go all in one
Oh yeah, lol ... I think that dress (or the lack thereof) was the reason we were sent to the Smoky Backroom that year.
LOL.....I’m sure of it! Oh, the memories!
Have a wonderful, Blessed Easter everyone
After the three guys did their gig, Ryan should have just told them to stand there until tomorrow night..
However, Lazaro is still America’s fave..and he’l be safe...Bottom 3 will be Angie (gasp),Burnell, and Devin..one of the guys goes..I think Devin..come on..if America votes off the black dude on Motown night..it means we’re a racist nation..
Lol at Ryan saying “America, no need to vote. Lets just put the guys on the urinal stools now until tomorrow.”
Yes, if Urkel goes home to it we are truly racist. ;)
Starting to watch the show. Not going to read the live thread til it’s over.
Kim Fowley is only maybe a little less creepy than van Alden. There was a reason he produced underaged girl bands.
Watch out you could be the newest judge next year!
Oh my, I’d need a new push up bra! I have the idol junk in the trunk already....
The best example I can think of is when Gretchen Mol told the story of how the Commodore raped her when she was 12 or 13 years old. Then two episodes later we were all like, Oh Jimmy, NOOOOOOOO! Thats your mom!!!
That scene with jimmy was where I nearly stopped watching. The same week, maybe the same night, on Dexter, His sister Deb “realizes” she is in love with her brother. To me it was like the whole TV pulled itself off the wall and jumped over a shark. Incest week on cable?? It was as if Barack Obama were reelected President. ;)
I agree with you about Eli and chalkie. Excellent actors.
Didn’t know that about the actor who plays Richard. Very pedigreed!
Still watching idol - the guests are singing - ughhh, it’s true - bare midriffs are coming back in. Hated that fashion last time.
Dying laughing at your gif!! Ricky clutching his head!! The eyes bugging out! I assume our Ri-ri-Ricky will be packing his ba-ba-bags tonight. Still watching spoiler free.
Fowley seemed old back then! Yeah, they both have rectangular faces, don’t they. The van Alden actor looks totally different with a relaxed look on his face. Another AMAZING actor.
Holy southern accent, batman! This is the very first time I’ve ever heard Keith Urban sing! How can he go from Australian to Texan?? Wow! Cool. How did he do it? He is so sweet and cute, not my type though, but how can he stand that cold bitchy wife?? I hope she is nice to him.
Chalky especially had some great scenes in season 2. The one in the jail cell with David Copperfield was brilliant.
Oh, yes! And the dining room table scene with his daughter’s boyfriend. That was so real. I hope there is more Chalky. And I hope someone kills Gretchen Mol.
I agree with both of you, and now that you mention it, I bet she is using those nicknames to put them in their place a little. Most of these kids can actually sing (Minaj can’t, as far as I know). She’s threatened by their talent, particularly the girls who threaten her with their natural good looks too. She put down Kree and Janelle last night in very backhanded ways.
I’m growing to kind of agree with her assessments but she is awfully condescending for someone with very little singing talent. I agree, she must be threatened.
You have to try really really hard to make a Bob Seger song sound gay.
Not these three.
Noticed they didnt have any shots of L-L-Lazaro talking to the kids.
Hurry up, mister. I ain’t got all day! Are you a mister? Cause you kinda look like a girl too.
How old is that photo of Aretha?
I still think it’s cool that she called in.
What is Coltons disability, Tourette syndrome?
No, he is a Christian! That is his disability to the Hollywood crowd!
And the Cuban lives to s-s-stutter another day.
I think this was a time to use the save. No way was he the worst. Toilet brush head was the most talented boy there. I would have been ok with it. He was talented.
Ah well. Wasn’t crazy about him but Urkel and the Cube cube Cuban were worse.
Devin sang circles around the other boys. Lazaro is pathetic. Burnell is extremely weird.
Johnny Keyser would have won this year. The producers kept him off because of it.
Yes, somethings rank higher than Idol this week:)
Have a blessed Easter too!
I may be out next Wed as I am going to attend a friend's concert. Should be back Thursday as usual.
I agree with you about Keyser. Seems the agenda this year was to make sure the winner, if it had to be a guy, would be one who was on the cultural fringe in some way.
That agenda, plus the clown judges (with one exception) make the show almost unwatchable for me. I record the show, read the wonderful, funny snarkies on this thread, zip through the recording to stop and watch segments deemed watchable based on the comments made.
You people have lifted the snark to an art form. And you Silent_Jonny, have provided the canvas. Love it! Thank you.
I was pretty close to nailing it.....wonder if Angie and Lazaro were 5th and 6th..
I have the perfect ending for the series..."on the last episode "Bombshell" opens on Broadway, all the critics pan it..it closes after the first night, and Ellis commits suicide in front of the TKTS booth in Times Square..
Saturday night is always the kiss of death. Oh well.
Yep. They're the only ones worth saving from this bunch.
Hoping to use that gif again this week. *fingers crossed*
Good :) Hope you had a great Resurrection Day!
Speaking of Patsy Kline, Crystal Bowersox has been signed to play her on Broadway-a big break for her.
Hope Bowersox gets rid of that rats nest hairdo (Dred Locks) and covers the tatts before the play...or Patsy and her beehive will roll in her grave!!
Praying that L-L-Lazaro forgets all his lyrics tonight so they will finally have to give him the boot!
(So glad that Lent is over and I can be mean and snarky again.)
PUT ON A ONE PIECE DRESS KREE AND CURL YOUR HAIR. She cannot win if she doesn't have some pizzaz in her style. Maybe they are styling her so that she'll lose cuz they don't want another country singer to sing.
They are styling her to work at the Public Library. It's baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad. One piece dress would be a lot better than all those separates anyone can get at an outlet store.
My finish: 1. I still have a duck. I'm a duck whisperer. 2. Kree needs to girl it up. 3. I studied design and fashion - like Rush always says, "Don't doubt me." (not on costuming anyway).
Bye, I am not reading your posts. I will blast in and get over yourselves. Kree can't win if she continues to dress like a librarian (a part time librarian; no less.)
As the above post attests..........Snarking is NOT for amateurs! ;-)
Hi, Mags :)
This could be amusing tonight......I fear it may not be so much good singing, as it will be “Fun things to do with fake leather” (none of the contestants appear to have that Rock and Roll vibe)
Evening Jonny, All.
