I read yesterday that with the low ratings American Idol is receiving this year that Ryan Seacrest's job might be on the line. I think Fox has got the wrong person. Look, I don't know if Paula Abdul is drinking, taking medication, disinterested, or just the dumbest person on the planet, but there is something wrong. I want you to know that I didn't sin. I didn't watch American Idol last night, but know the background and have seen the clip below.
If you don't know the latest in the Paula Abdul is probably drunk episode, it went something like this. Five finalists had each sung one Neil Diamond song. That should bring in the teen crowd. One song. No one had sung two. Everyone of the five had sung one. Everyone in the audience knew it, everyone at home knew it. The only person who didn't know it was Paula.
At the halfway point, the five were brought out so the judges could provide general comments. When it came to Paul analyzing Jason Castro, this is what Paula had to say. "Oh gosh—we've never had to write these things down, uh, fast enough. Jason, the first song, I loved hearing your lower register, which we never really hear. Um, the second song, I felt like your usual charm, it was missing for me. It kind of left me a little empty. The two songs made me feel like you're not fighting hard enough to get into the top four."
You know what this shows? That Paula has no idea what anyone does and just makes up the first thing that pops into her head. Tell me again how she got this job. How about hiring someone who actually is more interested in the singers than in cashing a paycheck or the next commercial so they can chug down their "Coke."
Oh, and I wouldn't even bother feeling sorry for Paula. Even though the entire audience was laughing at her, and the producers probably yelled at her, she probably woke up this morning in her usual foggy haze and has no idea it even happened.
