american idol kicked off pacitti

By brendon February 12, 2009 @ 7:45 AM

Just last night Joanna Pacitti was chosen to advance to the final 36 on American Idol Season 8, but early this morning producers kicked her off the show citing her relationship with some close to the show and her previous record contract (more on that here).  EW says…

Pacitti has been booted from the competition and replaced by 26-year-old Felicia Barton. "It has been determined that Joanna Pacitti is ineligible to continue in the competition," stated a Fox press release sent early Thursday morning announcing the show's full roster of semifinalists.

Is this really a big deal?  The point of the show is to discover unknowns right?  Did anyone know who the hell Joanna Pacitti was three weeks ago?  But more to the point this is bullshit because she’s hot, and sexy girls should be given unlimited chances at things.   Is this a fuckin spelling bee or a contest to find a star.  Even if it was a spelling bee it should be rigged so she won.  Give the jittery Indian kid "floccinaucinihilipilification".  Can you use it in a sentence?  Yes, "the word you have to spell is 'floccinaucinihilipilification' ".  And Joanna gets "to".  As in, "the unicorn said, welcome to Cookie Mountain".  We'll also accept "too", "2" or holding your fingers up in sort of a peace sign.

joanna pacitti might be cheating

American Idol doesn’t exactly have the greatest reputation in the world when it comes to fairness and being as open as they claim, so it would be a bad idea if a personal friend of the producers and a music industry vet made it to the finals. Oh hey guess what…

Star reports that Joanna Pacitti is no newcomer to the business, having released a major label album in 2006, starred in a MTV documentary, opened for Sheryl Crow and having her songs featured in movies and TV shows, including The Hills. But that's nothing compared to her connection to two executives at the L.A. offices of 19 Entertainment — the company that produces Idol.
Michelle Young and Roger Widynowski have very personal connections to the Joanna, who has referred to Michelle as her "manager" and "best friend," and credited Roger with "helping me get where I am today." Plus, the three of them even lived in the same L.A. apartment complex for several years.

Well whatever.  She’s hot so I think what’s she’s doing is fine.  It would be different if she were ugly.  If you have an advantage in life you should use it.  Like I used to work at Sears, so I knew the guy in the portrait studio, and so when I took my senior portrait with one foot on a ladder and holding my clarinet, I got all the copies I needed for family and friends.  Turns out I only needed one, but that’s beside the point.

I'm sure a better clip of this dude will show up later, but if you didn't see him on American Idol tonight, you missed a real treat.  He was like a mad scientists assistant, except for that nifty striped shirt of course.

AMERICAN IDOL GETS A NEW JUDGE

By brendon August 25, 2008 @ 7:14 AM

After the lowest ratings ever last year, American Idol is mixing things up this season and adding a fourth judge.  She is songwriter Kara DioGuardi, and she’s written songs for Britney, Gwen Stefani, Pink, Leona Lewis, and Nicole whats-her-name from the Pussycat Dolls (pictured above) among others.  Although I looked at the list (on her website here) and I’ve only heard of one of these fuckin songs, and that one sucked.  So I guess you could say I’m not impressed.  Anyway, Us magazine says,

DioGuardi will appear at the judges' table with Paula Abdul, Simon Cowell and Randy Jackson on the eighth season of the hit show, which premieres in January.
“We are turning the heat up on Idol this year and are thrilled to welcome Kara to the judges' table," show creator and executive producer Simon Fuller said in a statement.
"She is a smart, sassy lady, and one of America's most successful songwriters. We know she will bring a new level of energy and excitement to the show," Fuller added.

Oh it's working already Mr. Fuller.  This has added so much excitement I can barely control my breathing.  I can’t believe they got Kara Diogardy.  They must have paid her a fortune.  Karla DioGarmi will bring in viewers by the dozen.  "Boy that Tara D’Gwardi really had something to say", people will exclaim.



DAVID COOK IS OUR NEW IDOL

I didn’t watch a second of American idol this year, but David Cook is this years winner.  I don’t know who that is, or if he’s any good, but this picture came up when I ran a search on Getty.  No wonder he won.  He gives everyone presents on Christmas.  People love that.

PAULA ABDUL IS SMOOTH

By brendon April 30, 2008 @ 6:24 AM

Controversy on "American Idol" last night, after Paula Abduls drunk ass told finalist Jason Castro that his second song left her a little empty. Quite possibly because he didn’t sing a second song. Randy tries to cover for her, but Paula blurts out, "Oh my god, I thought you sang twice". To be fair to Paula, it is hard to be moved by things that don't happen. Why just this morning I was not invited to judge the Brazilian Supermodel Cocksucking Championships. You might think that was a big deal, but whatever man. I might not even do it.
