Me too. But, strangely, I couldn't look away. It was like a car wreck, only....ickier.

Heh, before I found out Simon does have a girlfriend, I wondered sometimes about him and Paula, 'cause there were times on the show when they seemed to be kinda flirty with each other.

But turns out that's not the case.

That whole thing was just...twisted...simply because I never thought I'd see the day when Simon was actually romantic.

Not just you...I totally agree, she didn't sound that great last night. She seemed off. I wouldn't blame her for being nervous, though. There was a LOT of people watching (now, is it just me, or did the second American Idol show get lots more hype than the first one did? I don't recall this much hype the first time around).

She looked nice, though-I liked her outfit. .

That "Miss Independent" song...eh, it's okay. My sister loves it, which doesn't surprise me.

It's better than "A Moment Like This" (seriously, if I never hear that song again, I'll be completely happy).

Haha, oh, god, yes, those were...interesting...

I was sitting there going, "Um...what song are we singing here again?"

I'm gonna have to kill that Kevin kid, though...I cannot hear "Like A Virgin" anymore without thinking of that audition of his...

And I've thought sometimes about what the judges would say about Bono, or various other celebrities...I dunno, I think they would've liked Bono's voice, but I dunno if they'd say he looked like an American idol.

It would've been interesting to have these judges go back in time and be commenting on various celebrities when they were just starting out. That's something I'd like to see.

Keith...

My dad and I still make fun of Keith's performance... That is classic.

I think that "Miss Independent" is a better single than "A Moment Like This". AMLT was just so sappy and drawn out.

Clay and Ruben are in Toronto as we speak!!! They are doing some promo thing here for the next American Idol. I am very pleased to see that they (unlike many celebrities and tourists right now) are ignoring the SARS hysteria and visiting our city.

A few days ago I was checking out the top sellers at amazon...

Clay's single was number 1 and Ruben's was number 4.

Unlike Kelly Clarkson who refuses to come here due to SARS.

I really don't understand that, they come in for maybe a day, it's not like they'll be working in hospital wards. But whatever.

That is very cool.

Clay and Ruben seem like really neat guys. I'd like to meet them sometime, they both seem pretty nice.

Argh, yes.

Seriously, if I were the kid of one of those parents, especially that one mom they dubbed the "stage mom from hell" or whatever...I'd consider moving out. Those moms got on my nerves. Fast.

no but i watched that Tyra Banks American supermodel show.

it was actually interesting to me, i could not understand what it was that would make these girls want to be supermodels. no one in that industry seemed real or truly care about them. such an odd life to live.
