Anwar (finally) gets the Boot on American Idol - kicked off in Week 6 results show
Anybody want to read 50 pages about the history of the law of universal jurisdiction and the legality of the International Criminal Court? Didn't think so. I don't blame you - I didn't really want to write it. But, now that it's done, I can get back to writing about things that really matter, like what Ryan Seacrest is wearing and how much Anwar suX0rZ!
Results night, and Seacrest is here wearing a t-shirt under his suit jacket. If showed up to work like that I'd get... well, OK, that would be dressed up for me. My office has what you'd call a "relaxed" dress code.
Oh Lord, they're showing a clip in which Seacrest gets a star on Hollywood Blvd. I really hope this is a joke. Oh no, I don't think that it is. They're showing clips of the producers congratulating him... I wonder, is everyone in England named either Simon or Nigel? Sure seems that way.
Now clips of Seacrest in DC. Seacrest in New Orleans. Seacrest on a farm. Seacrest manhandling a flamingo. Hey, America, can we all agree to vote Seacrest off this week and give Anwar another shot?
Plug for the American Idol charity CD and a quick tribute to John Farrar. That guy is still around? How can you believe that's not magic? Oh, apparently he's something to do with this song that the Idol and 6 runner ups (read: losers) are singing "You can Shine." Never heard of it. Carrie Underwood apparently plays the guitar. OK, I forgive her crappy performances as of late. (I still don't forgive the vegetarian thing, though.) tivo-SKIP!
This week's Ford commercial is some weird psuedo-animation-CGI thing to the Stray Cats' "Rock this town." Hmmm, this whole animation is set in the 50's at a drive-in restaurant. Makes perfect sense that they picked an 80's song for it. (??)
Oh, Seacrest is separating the contestants into groups today, "far side" and "near side," but not telling us which group is which.
- Vonzell: team far.
- Federov: team near.
- Anwar: team near. (ok, at this point we know that "team near" is the bottom three." Federov knows it too, because he looks less than thrilled.
- Constantine: team far. (The mere mention of Constantine's name gets a huuuuuuge shout out from the audience. Like it or not people, he's in the final 2. Let's hear it for the teenie boppers!)
- Carrie: team far.
- Scott: team near. (Scott also looks less than thrilled)
- Bo Bice: team far. SAFE. Can I call it or can I call it?
Seacrest tells Bo to look at the 2 groups and to join the group that he thinks is the top group tonight. Bo gets up, casually struts over and stands between the 2 groups - awwww, everyone is a winner! they made a little cutsie!
Commercial break, Bo is sent to team far. Gee, no one saw that one coming. (Except for maybe Nadia, watching at home.)
Paula uses the phrase "tapping the heart strings." heh.
Anwar is gone. Gee, who could have predicted that?
Certainly not me.
Anwar retrospective time, I'm sure it'll be seen again one day in a courtroom.
But unless I'm picked for jury duty that day, I don't have to watch. So, that's enough for me.
