American Idol Recap: Birmingham

"I have got no idea what this show is anymore," Simon uttered to a contestant dressed in yellow feathers... all the way down to the ribbon tied around her kankle. "I'm serious, I've got you standing in front of me looking like some Easter bunny nightmare experiment." Randy she's got her number don't you worry -- oy! You had to ask. So the woman claimed to be 26. Then it was 33 and by the end of the audition she said 50! As obvious as it was that she didn't fit the age criteria, why did they even let her perform in front of the judges? (that was a rhetorical question) For as much "uniqueness" I noticed... there was also a lot of the same old-same old. In fact, my mind kept taking me back to last year, Season 5 -- and it was not just because Alabama was the sweet home to reigning idol, Taylor Hicks'. Can a guy who looks like Jack Osborne pull off a song like Seal's "Kiss From a Rose?" Paula broke out the kiddie clap. That's the first time I saw that all season. Before Chris Sligh sang for us he set the expectation, "I hope I don't sound like crap." I'm sure David Hasselhoff wont leave home w/o his tissues this year. This guy is sure to make us laugh as well as surprise us w just how far he'll actually make it in this competition. Speaking of lol, the Dawg howled at everything last night, man... even when the contestants were in the middle of singing their hearts out. He just didn't hold back. Well if it wasn't a Pickler moment. She annoyed so many people last season. Oh no, not again!
