Adam Lambert Returns to American Idol

| April 14, 2010 at 9:57 PM EDT

Finally, we hear someone perform on the idol stage with true talent.  Adam Lambert returned this week to mentor the Top 9 for Elvis week and performed Whataya Want From Me on the results show.

Adam opens the song in a swirling cloud of green lasers shaped like a cone.  The version of the song is something new and different that only Adam can do.  Hopefully the idols are taking notes of his performance because they desperately need to bring some kind of rockin excitement to the stage instead of all the blah boring slow ballads they consistently sing from week to week.

Siobhan Magnus, known for her screams this season, should pay particular attention to how Adam hits the high notes and still manages to stay on key.

Ryan Seacrest, who is acting pretty normal this evening for a change exclaims, “Now that’s a performance!”  Adam thanks American Idol for preparing him for the real world of the music industry and says he wouldn’t have gotten this far without it. 

I’m saying Adam gives the best performance of the season. What did you think?

The “Big 3” will be around for another week on DWTS!!

| April 14, 2010 at 6:44 AM EDT

Bye Aiden! I don’t think he’ll be missed too much! He’s not one of the “Big 3” so I think the show will continue with the good ratings..

I gotta admit, as much as I want her gone, I’m enjoying the nationwide bashfest of Kate Gosselin! The Jimmy Fallon bit, the comments from Bruno on George Lopez..this is some great material! Lol..I know everyone’s talking about the shows high ratings, and yes a lot of it, if not most of it is because of Kate! But it’s not cuz people like her..she’s in that “Love to Hate” category, and people are watching, kinda like when you a traffic accident..its horrible but you can’t look away!

Despite some positive comments from the judges, Kate is lacking the hard work needed to nail down these dances..in fact I think most of them are not putting in the hard work that sets you apart from the rest..

Chad seems to be falling for Cheryl..Pam seems absolutely smitten in rehearsals AND during the show..I’ve seen that look, I’ve seen those actions..trust me, Pam wants more than “Chemistry” between them!

How about Jake? He survived another week..All his positive talk didn’t do too much for his performance..this guy is so corny I almost feel bad for him..I said almost! I KNOW I wasn’t the only one who laughed and kinda wanted to see him fall when he slipped and if there’s one girl who’s not feeling it with their partner, I think it’s Chelsie! Did you see that, ” Dude! Back up off me!” body language at the end of their routine? Or was it just me?

I think if those 3, Jake, Pamela and especially Kate get voted off, I think the ratings take a huge dip..

I also think it’s heading for a Nicole vs. Evan showdown for 1st and 2nd place..

I’m not a big fan of the dual scoring system! It’s like all those technical things the judges mentioned in the dance go right over most peoples heads! Show us some good dancing and give a number between 1 and 10!

What is this, the Olympics? They shouldn’t try and fix what’s not broken..the formula is simple, now dance!

And how about a little more interesting dances? I feel like I’m at my grandmas house watching, it’s so slow! Maybe they’re going for an older audience..sure they beat AI last week in ratings, but in the key demo of 18-49, AI still came out on top..

DWTS: Pamela Still Sizzles while Kate Fizzles Out

| April 12, 2010 at 9:58 PM EDT

Kate Gosselin once again showed her lack of musicality by dancing a lack luster Tango with her partner Tony Dovolani.  Her off screen chaotic life is reflecting in her learning to dance and her attitude toward life in general.  I’m sure finding out that ex husband Jon is taking her back to court for primary custody of the kids is not making things any better for the reality star.  Perhaps she needs to take some time to figure out her personal life instead of continuing on in this competition.  The judges bragged she gave her best dance to date but she still received the lowest scores of the evening.

Pamela Anderson on the other hand brought life to the stage with a Rumba.  While dancing a more restrained and tasteful  dance tonight she still exuded sex appeal.  Bruno said, “Pamela can do refinement and elegance and still be drop dead sexy.”  I was pretty shocked to see her glide into those splits at the end of the arrangement.  The chemistry between her and partner, Damian Whitewood is amazing and fun to watch.  I believe she will continue to improve as the weeks go by if she remains in the show.  Carrie Ann said she thought there was magic happening and a beautiful sophistication.  Maybe she can give Kate some lessons on how to move those hips.

The best scores of the night went to Olympic Gold Medal figure skater Evan Lysacek with former Pussycat Doll Nicole Scherzinger right behind.  Everyone else is pretty much middle of the pack with Chad Ochocinco having the best chance to improve and actually give it a go for first place.  Who did you think shined in tonight dances?

Celebrity Apprentice: The men win, yet still lose!

| April 12, 2010 at 12:38 AM EDT

Finally the guys broke out of their funk! Lol.. A bittersweet win cuz they lost Michael Johnson, which for me didn’t matter cuz unless he’s running track for the U.S.A. in the Olympics, I’m not a big fan of his..so see ya Mikey!

I think we might see a lady added to the guys team next week, no? I hate to say it, but Sharon should probably just throw the towel in and go..I don’t see her being able to snap it together for the next project, but we’ll see..

I’m so glad the men won! Had they lost, you just know, personal issues or not, Bret would have been thrown under the bus, again! Even though he questioned himself, Bret had that whole commercial in his head before they did it! It ended up being the task that broke their 3 loss streak! So I’m sooo hoping he doesn’t have to leave because of his daughters health ! I usually can’t help myself but to rip on someone crying on TV, but when it’s someone’s kid, I don’t go there..

The ladies strong foundation has not only cracked, but its seems to be crumbling fast! I love it! LOL..I would have loved to see Holly go! Notice how she moves right past the point that she didn’t even wanna see the final viral ad? Nothing like a blatant setup for Maria huh!

And just a little 2 cents here..I could care less about Cyndi going to see the President..IMO, that’s not a very good reason to be gone, and then because of that, given a pass for the week? What,they all can’t find something like that to attend? Maybe it’s just me cuz I’m so sick of her..

I’m glad Trump didn’t bite on the tag team from Holly and Selita on Maria and I was glad to see Selita go! Also I’m glad to see Curtis win for an American based charity! See that Selita?

And how fake of Selita to run her mouth about Maria AFTER she gets done giving her the fake BS when she’s face to face, hugging her! Bye Selita!!

I think Holly also got a pass tonight along with Sharon and Cyndi..there were good reasons to fire her, but I can live with Selita being FIRED!!

The Amazing Race 16: Singapore Recap

| April 11, 2010 at 8:46 PM EDT

The teams make their way from Malaysia to Singapore for this leg of the race.  The dreaded U Turn is coming up and Brent and Caite want to use it on their nemesis Brandy and Carol but it is a race to see who gets their first.

The two teams have had it out for each other since day one when the ladies made fun of Caite for her beauty queen statements.  From there the two teams have managed to try and avoid each other but the looks and side comments kept going throughout the race. 

Departing first was the cowboys but all teams end up together on the train to Singapore.  When they arrive at their first clue, Dan and Jordan decide to try the fast forward while the other teams make their way to the Detour.  Dan and Jordan had to ride in one of the cars in the Singapore Flier and once they reach the top they had to leave their car and crawl to the next car.  A scary situation but well worth it because they immediately get to go to the pit stop and become the first team to arrive.

The other teams reach a Detour where they choose from learning a drum routine or trying to selll ice cream on the streets.  All choose the drums but the detectives leave to do the fast forward but have to leave once they get there because it is already being done so they then have to sell 25 ice cream sandwiches on the streets of Singapore.

Brent and Caite do pretty well and finish the drums first so they reach the U Turn before anyone else and put up Brandy and Carol’s picture.  When they get to the U Turn they have some not so nice comments to say about the former Miss Teen USA contestant.  The best was calling them Brent and Caite Gump.  Brandy and Carol must now go back and sell ice cream before they can move on to the next clue.

The teams make their way to a shipyard where they get stuck with a Roadblock.  A member from each team must count the chains on a large anchor chain and if they get the correct number (521) they receive their next clue.  All teams complete this first time out.  They now make their way to a park where they ride down a mega zip line to receive their clue to the pit stop.

Dan and Jordan had already arrived a while back.  Brent and Caite come in second; Jet and Cord third; and Louis and Michael fourth.  Brandy and Carol are the last team to arrive and have been eliminated from the race.  I think they will hold a grudge against the models for the rest of their lives.
