    • SNL just blew the opening Charlie Sheen skit. Going to bed instead of watching this unfunny show. #winning 8 years ago
    • Best idea I've heard so far this week - have Charlie Sheen host next year's Oscars. Highest ratings ever! 8 years ago
    • I still can't believe that Kathryn Bigelow directed Point Break. I am an EFF-BEE-EYE agent. #oscars 8 years ago
    • Wow, first the Globes and now the Oscars fail to recognize Corey Haim. Feldman's gonna be pissed. 8 years ago
    • After loss to #knicks, Miami Heat now 14-15 against teams with a .500 record or better #justsayin 8 years ago

American Idol Recap – San Francisco

My favorite comment I received this past week comes from Hazel who writes “GOSH.! CAN YU GUYS BE ANYMORE HARSH. I JUST LOVE THE FACT THAT THE PEOPLE THAT RIGHT CRAP ABOUT OTHER PEOPLE DONt EVEN HAVE TALENT! I love it !”

Thanks Hazel, I’ll send you a commemorative tote bag filled with guacamole. Keep on reading my blogs.

Normally I’d say that Hazel has a point, but where has the talent/excitement been in the auditions this year. Outside of Steven Tyler’s wackiness and Jennifer Lopez looking fantastic in HD, there hasn’t been much to get excited about. I remember years past seeing the auditions of Taylor Hicks, Chris Daughtry, Carrie Underwood, Crystal Bowersox amongst other, and having a reason to root for them during the Hollywood round and when actual voting began. Now, the only two names I can honestly remember from this season are Chris Medina (for his truly sad backstory) and Lauren Alaina (for being an insanely talented 15 year old who will probably cave under pressure soon enough). I don’t have a dog in this fight yet, and maybe that’s what upsets me. Hopefully San Fran has some talent to speak of before tonight’s Hollywood round.

As always, and in the interest of time (I’m on my lunch break), going to do the 10 words or less recap.

Inessa Lee – scary look into Abigail Breslin’s future.

*Brittany Mazur – some promise there, sings better than Brittany Murphy.

*Lara Johnston – as long as she’s not related to Levi, I’ll root for her

*Matthew Nuss – a little raw, kind of looks like Blake Lewis’ big brother

*Stefano Langone – finally, someone to root for, reminds me of Andrew Garcia from last year, but not annoying

Justin Bieber movie coming out Friday.  Remind me to stay far away from the theaters on Friday.

*Clint Jun Gamboa – not as good as judges made him out to be, but I guess ticket worthy

Kenneth Berba – wouldn’t even be good enough to get a role in a musical for deaf people

Weston Lee Smith – he gets an A for trying – A as in Awful

Drew “Transformer” Beaumier – anything designed to remind me of Shia LaBeouf is an automatic no

*Julie Zorrilla – reminded me of that Simpsons episode when Bleeding Gums Murphy sang the national anthem.  Sings well but takes FORRRRR-EVER to sing

Dave Combs – remember Ray Combs?  my favorite Family Feud host.  R.I.P.

Rick Deschamp – last name is French for “not the champ”

David Johnston – definitely related to Levi

Sabrina Corbett – dressed like a cop, sang like a cop

*Emily Anne Reed – cute, lovely unique voice, but won’t hold up well with voters

*James Durbin – didn’t we already have the contestant with tourette’s last season?
