Wow. American Idol.
Last night, in an effort to let our DVR get ahead of us, I switched to FOX because they have news at 9:00. We caught the last 10 minutes of Idol because of it. I outright forget about FOX all the time, because growing up, we had terrible reception for it, so I honestly never watched anything on channel 32. I like the Simpsons, but (before the dawn of the onscreen guide thingy) would never even think of turning the TV to 32. "Doesn't work."
OK but I digress. Here are highlights from the last 10 minutes:
- Bon Jovi sang a song nobody knows. They made more records after Slippery When Wet! This is news to me.
- Jon Bon Jovi gave the kids advice or something in a previous episode. He enjoyed it, and would love to see them all again in the audience of his next tour.
- The guy who got eliminated was then asked/forced to sing Wanted (Dead or Alive.) Instead of Sambora doing him a solid and backing him up, or even letting the guy sing with the band that just performed, they made him do it all karaoke style, providing his own Sambora echos. Tragic! The agony of defeat I guess.
- All of his competitors swayed and folded their hands as if to pray while he 'rocked them all.'
*Tony Fitzpatrick, I thought you were OK about 15 years ago. Cool, even! But now you are shilling for FOX news at 9 to give some kind of artist credibility to hyper-yuppified Bucktown. What?
