American Idol stays idle
June 23rd, 2014 under American Idol 9+. [ Comments: none ]


You know the expression, if ain’t broke, don’t fix it? So you’d think because American Idol is broken, they would fix it and we’d be wrong. Well at least when it comes to their judges, Jennifer Lopez, Keith Urban and Harry Connick Jr and host Ryan Seacrest. I get keeping Ryan because he’s the only original left and he’s great at what he does for the show.
But when it comes to the judges, who are all old enough to be all of the contestants parents, you have to wonder why they kept all three of them around. I mean, the show had its lowest ratings, by far, this season and it was partially because of them. While I think that the men have good chemistry and are watchable, I just can’t stand J-Lo. She’s the reason why I gave up the show in the first place. I normally support people from my home borough of The Bronx, but I just can’t with her. She makes me embarrassed to say that we are both from the same block. Well actually former AI judge Steven Tyler and I are from same the part of The Bronx, but you get what I mean.
Plus they are obviously doing something wrong when it comes to picking out the talent during the audition phase because last year’s group of contestants were considered one of the worst. Say what you want about Simon Cowell, Paula Abdul and Randy Jackson, but at least they were good at finding singers. In fact, since Paula left the show, they have not found a #1 singer. There is something that needs to be said about that.
I seriously don’t get this decision, do you?

Does Ryan Seacrest’s singing voice hit the Marx?
May 22nd, 2014 under American Idol 9+. [ Comments: none ]


Yesterday on the American Idol finale, Ryan Seacrest sang a duet with the man whose concert was the first one he attended. We have been waiting for him to sing for 13 years and finally he sang Right Here Waiting with Richard Marx. Good things don’t always come to those who wait.
Listening to him sing, makes me miss when Simon Cowell was on the show because imagine who he would’ve critiqued the host. It would not have been pretty.
On a positive note for Seacrest, at least he sings better than that woman he made an uber star, you know, Kim Kardashian.

Harry Connick Jr got starstruck in the friendly skies!
May 12th, 2014 under American Idol 9+, David Letterman. [ Comments: none ]


Harry Connick Jr might be a celebrity, but that doesn’t stop him from getting starstruck Tonight, when he was on The Late Show, the American Idol judge told David Letterman how excited he was to share a plane with Leonard Nimoy aka Mr Spock. His excitement was so cute, how could I not share it with you.
Although while the crooner was all happy to be in first class with the legend, I am sure Spock was like Beam me up, Scotty after he realized he was trapped in a confined space with an overzealous fan a row over and behind him.

Ryan Seacrest has a new beard!
May 7th, 2014 under American Idol 9+. [ Comments: none ]


Ryan Seacrest is always clean shaven, but the host of everything Tweeted this photo of himself with a beard. You know what, I think it works on him. I still like his face hairless, but I could deal with this look if he were allowed to keep it. But as long as he is doing that show, American Idol, he won’t be able to.
BTW doesn’t he look like he should be in a boy band with the scruff?

Is this Ryan Seacrest’s secret to it all?
April 17th, 2014 under American Idol 9+. [ Comments: none ]


Ryan Seacrest Tweeted a picture of himself downing some Sriracha straight from the bottle and now we know his secret!
His skin has that natural tan look all year long because his blood is mixed with the hot sauce. He is always awake and able to do all of those job because when his mouth isn’t on fire from it, his butt is. And finally, we know why he gave us The Kardashians, he made a deal with the devil. I mean no mortal, who is not a demon, can drink that stuff like that without suffering a major complications. Am I right?
So do you think we now know Ryan Seacrest’s secret???

Could Ryan Seacrest be out of American Idol?
April 10th, 2014 under American Idol 9+. [ Comments: none ]


According to Variety, Ryan Seacrest’s contract is up at American Idol and he is talking to Fox about staying on the show. He isn’t only talking to Fox about Idol, he’s also talking to NBC about staying on with Today.
My prediction is that with AI’s numbers way down this season that Fox will want to cut his multi-million dollar salary by a sizable amount. Something the man with many many many jobs will probably say no to even though he doesn’t need the money thanks to The Kardashians. So will the only original member of American Idol left on the show be gone? Only time will tell, but I think it is a given.
BTW does anyone know where Brian Dunkleman is because now is the perfect time for him to come back to the show. How hot would that be?

Adam Lambert is a Queen!
March 6th, 2014 under American Idol 9+. [ Comments: 1 ]


Adam Lambert announced today on Good Morning America that he will be touring with Queen this summer as there lead singer. He will be replacing the late great (irreplaceable) Freddie Mercury or as the Josh Elliott calls him Eddie Mercury. Dumb a$$.
To me no one can ever fill Freddie Mercury’s boots and this tour is like one of the shows you go to see at local beach during the summer where there is only member of the band left and yet they are acting like the original lineup is still jamming with them. You know, like those Oldies but Goodies concerts that are basically free because who would pay to see that one guy whose name you don’t know from the band you do.
What do you think of him touring with Queen?

It’s been raining so much in LA, Ryan Seacrest lost his tan!
March 2nd, 2014 under American Idol 9+. [ Comments: none ]


Ryan Seacrest Instagrammed this video of him rehearsing yesterday for Oscars’ red carpet. The only thing I noticed is the normally tan host was pale white. Who knew three days of rain was enough to bring out his skin’s natural color.

Looks like Simon Cowell’s heart has melted
February 16th, 2014 under American Idol 9+. [ Comments: 1 ]




On Friday, Simon Cowell became a first time father and now just two days later it looks like Eric has completely melted his dad’s ice cold heart. I guess we can say goodbye to the King of Mean now that he is a proud papa.

The X Factor Xed by Fox
February 7th, 2014 under American Idol 9+. [ Comments: none ]


Fox announced today that The X Factor will not be back for another season. For the first time since 2002 our airwaves will be without Simon Cowell, who is returning home to London to work on The X Factor there.
Is the news surprising? Not at all because of the low ratings and never having created a star from the show. Well at least not one as a singer. Because The Goldbergs’ Hayley Orrantia started out on the singing competition.
Due to The X Factor’s failure, I am sure other talent competitions will be following the show into the world of TV history. They have run their course for the time being, but they will be back again at some point to haunt our television sets.
