    The face crap was grotesque enough, but things got even weirder when Jessica started making crazy face back at her! Ewwwww!

    And now Braindamage Britney on X-Factor. Good grief. They say she already stormed off the set in a huff the very first day of shooting. Is that like Letting Manny be Manny??

    When she starts giving her critiques is she going to say stuff like "You sound like the Iraq, and don't have maps, and such, and so forth..."??

    I supposed we can't knock another special needs individual landing a job. That's what the America, as such, and so forth, is all about.

    I planned on posting that yesterday (my thanks go out to Drew2k for giving me a segue!), but I got busy...

    If memory serves, I believe that is what I read...

    I knew of her, but I wasn't really familiar with her. I imagine the majority of AI viewers were more familiar with Jennifer Hudson's version (or Amber Riley of "Glee") as well...

    Her face was indeed scary... and that was mentioned strongly in the texting going on at my house, as well as the Twitter-verse (Cari Fletcher of "Lakoda Rayne" and Sara Bareilles for instance both commented on her facial expressions). I took it better than some people (particularly after seeing Fantasia's pants) as it's not something she could do much about. I think it wouldn't have been so bad if it wasn't for her false teeth causing her issues...

    As Sara Bareilles also stated, Jessica was singing her @$$ off during that song. I thought Holliday did well as well, but her facial expressions distracted me from the song.


    My favorite duets of the night were Hollie/Jordin, Phillip/John, and Jessica/Jennifer. Had it been Jennifer Hudson, I suspect that order would be completely different! ;)

    I think Simon may have lost his dang mind when hiring Britney... :rolleyes:

    Also, supposedly, she not only left the auditions after somebody performed a song of hers, but she got into it with Demi. I personally think that tiff was strictly a disagreement and nothing more that the media has overblown, but it will be interesting to see what else happens... NOT!!

    That's another thing about the ratings...

    Several years ago, you had "American Idol" and possibly "Nashville Star"... now you have "American Idol", "The X-Factor", two seasons of "The Voice" per year, and now "Duets."

    There's nothing like over saturating the market to bring down the ratings...

    That said, has there been another show ever in its 11th year that had the same ratings as Idol season 11? :scratchin

    I really don't follow ratings too much...

    A lot of the stuff I like rarely gets good ratings, and a lot of the stuff I think is crap does, so ehhh...

    Jennifer and Jessica can take credit for inducing my nightmares last night ... especially Jennifer! I was so distracted by Jennifer's facial antics that I took my eyes off of Jessica.

    Don't pay too much attention to Britney ... chances are she won't even complete the season. Simon is probably firing his casting people, but truth be told, it takes a jerk to recognize one.

    Simon WANTED Britney, so I doubt that's the case...

    As for the last part... I know a LOT of jerks, so I think I'm insulted by that statement... LOL!!! :lol:

    The way they're going they're gonna end up with a bus ticket to Nashville as the grand prize.

    Talk of human badminton shuttlecock Cheryl Cole to replace J.Lo. Bring it on! At least if the performers are skanks (as is usually the case by the final 10 or so) we'll still get some serious eye candy out of it.

    For me tho, Jimmy has emerged as the real star of the show. I skip past the judges and go right to him every time. I don't always agree with him, but he's not a complete idiot, something that can't be said of the judges.

    A few IDOL tidbits for those who missed these tidbits:

    Jessica Sanchez sang the National Anthem on the National Memorial Day Concert in Washington, D.C. that aired on PBS yesterday. Former Idol contestants Daughtry and Pia Toscano were there as well...

    Hollie and Colton received parades last week in their respective hometowns...
