I'm not an early riser, but thankfully millions of Americans who live on the East Coast of the United States are. Hopefully some of them watch the Today show and also love uploading videos to YouTube. That way, the rest of the country can sleep in, but can later tune in, to what promises to be about the best five minutes of television in the whole damn history of the world.
Paula Abdul is going to perform live on the Today Show on Friday April 25th. I want to emphasize that she will be performing live, with no backing track, AND will have to be awakened by about 4am to start slathering on all that makeup she is going to need to wear for an early morning appearance.
This is like the perfect storm of television appearances. The only thing that would be better is if she tied one on the night before and just got absolutely hammered. I don't know who suggested this idea to Paula, but I will be happy to buy them dinner. I also don't know which of Paula's people thought this would be a great idea. Did they watch that pre-recorded SuperBowl video with the million takes to get it right? This is live. Live I tell you and in the early morning hours. Singing live and early mornings are not a combination that Paula Abdul should ever embrace. But, she has, and to whoever made it possible, I say Thank You.
