So the word on the street is that "American Idol" judge Paula Abdul needs to be committed — fast — after her blunder last night.
For those of you that missed it, Paula started giving her comments for two of Jason Castro's songs last night.
Poor Paula jumped the gun a bit too early, giving her comments for the second song during the first segment, before the group picked up their mics again to sing their second tune.
Yes, it was a bad night for the seemingly flustered Paula. Conspiracy theorists believe her blunder proves the show is scripted. I don't really think so. But scripted or no, it just proves that Paula can be somewhat incompetent. That, or she was so bored by Jason's performance of "Forever in Blue Jeans" — which was so lackluster — she thought he was singing two songs in one.
If that's the case, I can easily sympathize with the former pop star.
If America is truly wise, Jason — who seems quite lazy on stage lately — will get the boot tonight, keeping Syesha — who continues to show a growing prowess — safe for another week.
Still, it's got to be a scary thought for Syesha to know that the last few weeks have landed her in the bottom vote-getters spotlight. This is getting intense.
Keep your fingers crossed. — January Holmes
