Paula Abdul’s Latest Blunder
Oh, that Paula Abdul! Always good for a laugh–even if they are all at her expense.
So, last night on “American Idol” each of the remaining 5 contestants had to sing two Neil Diamond songs. Because the show is only an hour, Ryan Seacrest hauled them out like cattle after they all sang their first song and had the judges do a quickie critique. Paula does her thing, but one problem: she gives feedback to Jason Castro on two songs. Which means one of two things: the show is scripted beyond belief–which could account for Ryan’s semi-flustered “you’re seeing the future, baby” comment–or Paula was late taking her meds. Or early. Could go either way there.
Paula claimed she got mixed up (shocking!) and that her second song comments were really meant for David Cook’s first song. Of course that doesn’t explain why her first reaction was “I thought you sang twice” when called on her blunder. Doh!
I swear, though, it made my night watching this. I love the shot of the contestants on stage as she’s talking. You know they’re all thinking “Huh?” That crazy pillhead really does bring the unintentional comedy gold, that’s for sure.
