  • 30 seconds of fame

    We find in this episode the good and the bad of the want to be american idols. Many show up for serious seats on the idol top candidates others show up for their 30 seconds of fame on national TV. It is always fun to watch the hopefuls look shocked that should never have even shown up get rejected. They look astounded. Why? They know they can't sing. It's fun to watch. To see who will go through and who will not. It is also great fun to watch the judges do their thing and let their frustrations show on national TV.moreless
  • Funny. Gay. Retro. Perfect.

    This episode was awesome. Simon was cool. Paula was cool. Randy got fat. Same old same old... Between the Suite Life of Zach and Cody and American Idol, this proved to be more funny. Watch out for Cosmic Coasters and Paradise Cleaners! By the way, I'm an entrepeen, peen, entrepeneur? This was the one to videotape and watch over and over again.
  • At least to me it was! I've picked my Idol Favorite!

    And no, it isn't the boy who looks like a girl. And just to comment on, um, him; if you knew that you had female features, why would you wear your hair long, a figure fitting t-shirt (which I think he borrowed from his sister) and a belt that just screams 'girl'. Don't tell me your not doing it for attention.

    My pick: The first girl to make it through. The most talented 16 year old that the show has ever seen.moreless
  • Whoa! This episode has everything you would not think of! Gay Idol!

    What was that? For the first time ever on Idol, a gay tries to make it to Hollywood. After Simon's nasty comments, there will be a lawsuit!

    The most weird thing, was the "Sherlock Holmes" that claimed he was "flawless" and ended with his invention to hold the soda cup, right in the air!

    What you think of the contestant that came with the support group? Will she be making the finals? Or will be the rocker and step-father of 2 kids? This is getting better!

    I predict a GAY LAWSUIT!moreless

    • Showing the androgynous Zachary being dejected after his rejection by the judges, the main theme from The Crying Game was heard, a movie whose main plot twist revolved around someone who was not what sex they appeared to be.
