Kevin Spacey hosted SNL this weekend. His opening monologue was an instructional performance on how he could win American Idol, including how he'd stop mid-song to woo the drunk, Puerto Rican judge. If you missed it but want to see it, Gray Charles has a link to the You Tube of it. Gray also has a link to the news section where they brought "Taylor Hicks" back for a little cameo, telling us how he'll win American Idol by doing what he does best: "sing from the heart and scare little children."
In other AI news, message boards haven't stopped exploding since Elliott's ouster. I thought the Daughtry outrage would be the peak of the season, but apparently not. Now, it's not just Elliott fans, though. Daughtry fans, Elliott fans, and Taylor fans really, really hate Katharine McPhee. Now, everything is her fault. (snicker)
I just want to say that I have no love for Katharine McPhee, but all the fat jokes really freak me out. Say what you want, but she is beautiful, and she's not fat. Sure, she once played a beached whale in a play -- a horny beached whale with expensive fake boobs (I KNEW IT!) -- but that was acting, people. The rumors are swirling about her producer father, and I'm actually sad because I don't think they'll bother with a standard Seacrest sit-down for the finale to clear everything up -- especially if there is truth to the rumors about her father having ties to FOX. But, again, I'm just repeating rumors here, I haven't found any evidence of this at all.
In other news, on Tuesday, Elliott's CD version of "Moody's Mood For Love" will be available for download at iTunes. I'll give a link when I've got it. Someone very thoughtful sent me a download link of it already, and I don't know what to say. I'm guessing they put Ricky Minor in charge of orchestrating and arranging the cuts on the CD, too, because it really kind of sucks. Sure, sure Elliott sounds great. But again, with the fucking band! This time, instead of overwhelming him, it just sounds like bad background porn movie music. I flove "Moody's Mood" and they done fucked it up bad.
Also in Elliott news, he'll be performing with Mary J. Blige for the season finale on Wednesday night. Apparently, Live will be there to perform with Chris, and Meat Loaf will be performing with Katharine. I don't know who they're getting for Taylor yet.
