Anyway, my husband still watches it if he's home when it airs. He watched it last night and I watched for a few before jumping in the shower. Good timing because I caught what probably will be one of American Idol's classic moments....blooper edition that is. And what do you know it's done by the 'most unlikely person' in the show. NOT!!!!
The remaining 5 contestants were asked to sing 2 songs last night. During the first set of songs, the judges were not asked to comment after each contestant. Instead they were asked to just say something after all 5 were done singing their first song. More like a look-back on all 5. Right! When Paula Abdul started talking, you could tell something was going to be wrong...terribly wrong....not that's something new mind you. She started mumbling her comments. When she started commenting on Jason Castro's song, Ryan Seacrest started looking around. Why? Because Ms. Abdul was giving a feedback on Jason's 2 songs...and he only sang ONCE!
She was as usual trying come up with something sensible and this is what she said:
"Jason, first song, I loved hearing your lower register, which we never really hear, um ... ."
"The second song, I felt like your usual charm wasn't — it was missing for me. It kind of left me a little empty."
"The two songs," she continued, "made me feel like you're not fighting hard enough to get into the top four."
"Oh my god, I thought you — I thought you sang twice!"Sensible??? Not quite! But it's Paula so what do you expect?
