Being a closet reality TV junkie, I admit to watching American Idol. The break out star this week is David Cook, who performed an original rendition of Michael Jackson’s “Billie Jean.” His modern take on this old song I actually liked better than the original. Brilliant! It was even brilliant enough to overlook his awkward facial features and the face only a mother could love.
The female vote for me goes to Brooke, who performed The Police’s “Every Breathe You Take.” Her performance was not up to her previous best effort on Lennon/McCartney night, but I like her original voice.
Now onto the judges… especially Paula. I always figure out whether Paula is having a good night or not by how she wears her hair. She wears it in her eyes to hide the fact she appears to be as high as a kite. She also rambles more on those nights- sometimes not making ANY sense at all. When she is not apparently on any mind altering chemicals, she wears her bangs back and loses the stoner look to her eyes. On these nights, she tends to make more sense- but just a little more than on other nights.
So who is YOUR favorite Idol this week or to date? That is- if you watch? Any comments about the judges?
Next up is Dancing With The Stars. Yes, I also watch DWTS, as well. The obvious favorite from week 1 on is Gold Medalist Kristi Yamaguchi. The transition from ice to the dance floor is seamless. My prediction is she will take it this year.
Penn getting the boot is an obvious first choice. The magician just couldn’t pull rhythm out of his hat if he tried! Tall, ungainly, his dance performance was painful to watch!
The first to get the boot on the female side of the competition was Monica Seles- and rightfully so. Though she has a fabulous backhand, forehand and tennis game, her dancing was horrendous. Auf wiedersehen, Monica! Oops, wrong program!
Your turn… who do you want voted off the island or sent packing on your favorite reality show?
