Watched the Idol tonight. Pretty lame. Mediocre showing by No Doubt, OK song by Daughtry, sad to see the 17-year-old girl go.
And then there was Paula Abdul.
For the first time since the show’s debut, Abdul performed a song. Did you read that correctly? Performed. Not sangâ€”performed. She danced around the stage, flashed a few Come hither looks, twirled and swiveled and bopped … and lip-synched the whole damn thing.
I wouldn’t care, save for the fact that, this season more than ever, contestants have been reminded that, come day’s end, Idol is a singing show. Dancing is great, flair is greatâ€”but you damn well better be able to sing.
Oh, well. Time for bed.
