What Sucks...Quick Hits: American Idol


Barry Gibb

What the hell happened to this guy? Is he aging in dog years? He couldn’t even stand up next to the piano. I looked it up- he’s 61- not 91. Staying Alive? (Come on, say it with me…) Barely.


Blake Lewis Part 1

Nice job picking an obscure tune for your second song. What’s with the “deep cut”? I can barely take the Barry Gibb hits, you’re telling me you’re gonna do “This Is Where I Came In” and ignore Jive Talking?


Blake Lewis Part 2

We get TWO tunes where he beat boxes? Are you taunting me? Even Randy couldn’t take it.


Song selection

These a-holes basically ignored the Saturday Night Fever album, other than LaKeisha's "Staying Alive", leaving “Night Fever”, “How Deep Is Your Love?”, “More Than a Woman”, and the Barry Gibb penned “If I Can’t Have You” out in the cold. They also blow off “New York Mining Disaster 1941” and the aforementioned “Jive Talking” as well as “Tragedy” and “Emotion”. Hate to say it, but Sanjaya, that sick fuck, would have picked at least one of those tunes. I guess you don’t know what you have until its gone.


Prediction

Looks like "single moms who pick themselves up by their boot straps" go up tonight against beat boxing. I don’t feel good about single moms coming out on top. Beat boxing has already defeated "guys on active service in the navy with two young kids", and "dudes who do shout outs to people at VA Tech".

That show last night sucked so much I went back to Gilmore Girls. Bee Gee music? Who can sing that? And who wants to hear them try?
