Is Luke Bryan losing it on American Idol?
April 18th, 2019 under American Idol 9+, Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, Luke Bryan. [ Comments: 1 ]


Lionel Richie shared a video of Luke Bryan dancing for Katy Perry after a long day of filming at Disneyland, and I think the Country singer might be losing it. I mean how else can explains those moves? They are those of a drunk guy at the bar around 3a trying to pick up the last few women that are still there and not someone who is a judge on American Idol. Which makes it a good thing that dancing is not one of the requirements for the singing competition or he would not be sitting at the judges’ table.

Lionel Richie says hello to tour bus in front of his house
December 17th, 2018 under Lionel Richie. [ Comments: none ]


As Lionel Richie was leaving his house the other day, there was a tour bus in front of it. What did he do? He got of his car and said to them, “Hello, is it me you’re looking for?” He was and they were dancing on the ceiling to see the legendary singer. In fact, they were in so in shock of seeing an actual celebrity that they almost forgot to ask for a photo for with him. Luckily, they remember before it was too late, otherwise, they would have been upset with themselves all night, all night long.

BTWF ads: Jaleel White for Pepsi

Before Jaleel White had those Urkel dance moves on Family Matters, he was showing them off for Lionel Richie in a Pepsi ad. How cute was the 8-year-old in that 1985 commercial?

Lionel Richie reveals Hello started out as a joke
December 28th, 2017 under Lionel Richie. [ Comments: none ]


When you think of the love ballads from the ’80s, you think of Lionel Richie’s Hello. The slow song made women swoon all over the world, but wait until you hear how the song came about. He told CBS This Morning, “My producer, James Anthony Carmichael, he was coming by the house. And he walked around the corner and I said, ‘Hello, is it me you’re looking for?’ And I’m falling out laughing. And he turned to me and said, ‘Finish that.’ I finished the song, and we lushed it up with strings, forever and forever.”

How many times have you picked up the phone and said to someone, “Hello, is it me you’re looking for,” because of that song as a joke. Turns out we subconsciously we knew how that chart topping tune got its start. And my question to you, does it change your perception of the single?

Talking about single, that was something he did not want to be. You see, that is how The Commodores got their start. He told the morning news program, “This was a college band, how-can-we-meet-all-the-girls-in-the-dormitory band. You know, it was not supposed to be the career.” Nearly 50 years later, what was not supposed to be his career is still how he is making a living. Funny how life has it ways of working out.

American Idol is stuck on Lionel Richie
September 29th, 2017 under Lionel Richie. [ Comments: none ]


After 4 months of searching, American Idol finally has its three judges. They are Katy Perry, Luke Bryan and Lionel Richie.

With that it is the same old, and that is a bad thing. The Voice has current hitmakers and American Idol has hasbeens. Well not Luke Bryan, but Katy who is on the decline and Richie who has not had a hit since before most of the contestants were born. I mean, he was old when I was kid and that was a long time ago. I like him, but how many contestants are going to tell him my grandmother loves your music? When it comes to Perry, the contestants will like her, but the viewers will not. She will be loud, annoying and make it all about her. Richie and her will fight to see who can talk more as Bryan play the ref who does not get to say much. Sad part is, he will probably say the best things.

Will the judging panel help the show be a sucess on its new home? Hell no! They needed someone younger. They should have tried to get a past American Idol contestant like Chris Daughtry or Clay Aiken to be a judge. Someone who has been through this and would be able to give great advice about how they are going to screw you over after you win. But that is a whole other story.

What do think of these three judges? Does it make you want to watch or switch the channel?

BTW all three of them will be on Good Morning America on Wednesday. Let’s see how they interact together and decide then how awful this is going to be.
