SYTYCD? S5: Top 18 Cuts

Posted by Kim on June 26th, 2009

Oh gosh, I hate that Pitbull song but that was some opening number!  When I heard Tabitha & Napoleon were choreographing with Dmitry Chaplin, I thought “whaaa?”, but that mix of hip hop and latin was pretty hot.  And Nigel also opened the show with a few great words about Michael Jackson and his influence […]

Michael Jackson Dies

Posted by Kim on June 26th, 2009

Wow, what a crazy day today has been, first with Farrah Fawcett passing away this afternoon, and then Michael Jackson.  I’m still shocked that Michael gone.  Those of you who remember all my posts (especially the song suggestions) about AI’s Michael Jackson themed episode probably already know that I was always a fan of his […]

Posted by Kim on June 25th, 2009

Ooh, I’m liking Cat’s grecian goddess look!  It’s nice to see her in something “normal”. Jonathan & Karla Hip Hop by Dave Scott Err, is Nigel off his meds or something tonight?  Gee whiz, he talked to them for like 10 minutes and he seemed very, very angry.  But, I can’t say I disagreed with […]

Carly Smithsons’ Band The Fallen Debut “Bury Me Alive”

Posted by Kim on June 23rd, 2009

Last week I mentioned that Carly Smithson (AI 7) was joining the ex members of Evanesence to form a new band called The Fallen (or We Are the Fallen? Apparently that’s the actual band name, hmm).  There were major technical difficulties this morning when their single was set to debut on their official website, but […]

SYTYCD? Top 18 Cuts

Posted by Kim on June 19th, 2009

Cat Deely is wearing pants.  I do not comprehend… Mia’s opening routine was unique with all the dancers in black suits with tats on their face dancing to “Higher Ground”.  And with giant stage lights behind them!  That’s probably the first Mia group routine that didn’t leave me like o_O Oh gosh, that Lil C […]

Carly Smithson Joins Evanesence

Posted by Kim on June 18th, 2009

This kind of came out of nowhere, but at the same time…why am I not surprised at all.  One of my AI7 favorites, Carly Smithson, is finally getting her career off the ground by joining three of the original members of Evanesence to form a new band called The Fallen.  On Monday the band will […]

SYTYCD? S5: Top 18 Recap

Posted by Kim on June 18th, 2009

Randi & Evan Jive by Louis Van Amstel Oh, this  was a FUN routine!  Lil C said Evan was too smooth and the Jive is supposed to be sharper, and the judges were kind of hard on him.  They’re  probably right, and she definitely outdanced him, but overall it was high energy and pretty exciting […]

SYTYCD: Top 20 Results Recap

Posted by Kim on June 12th, 2009

Here we go, first cuts of the season!  Who gets the embarrassing title of being the first ones to go?  Well, I know that the judges have a habit of eliminating a couple for the first couple of weeks each season.  I think there’s a couple that SHOULD go, but I have a feeling the […]

Breaking News: Gay Idol Loser is Gay

Posted by Kim on June 9th, 2009

Adam coming out of the closet really isn’t the story here because, duh, everyone knew he was gay and he was never really closeted anyways.  The rest of the interview is one giant face-palm moment that makes me SO happy not to be a fan of the guy.  Unsurprisingly, it seems that the media has […]

Jessica Simpson Does Vanity Fair

Posted by Kim on June 8th, 2009

Jessica Simpson is the newest Vanity Fair covergirl.  These pictures of her are great!  But I kind of have to wonder, exactly what is she promoting?  I guess just her weight loss.  But regardless, she looks fab in those old Hollywood style outfits.  Here are a couple of quotes from the mag: Jessica on whether […]

He might not have taken home the Tony award for best actor, but Constantine and the cast of Rock of Ages brought the house down tonight on the show!  I’m so glad I caught this live.  The cast sang “Don’t Stop Believing”, and Con really never has sounded better.  Seriously, this role couldn’t be more […]

Another One of Simon’s Favorites Fails

Posted by Kim on June 1st, 2009

This year really is the year of the underdog on reality tv, isn’t it?  I couldn’t help but laugh when I heard media darling Susan Boyle lost Britains Got Talent; she came in second to a superior, but less hyped act, dance group Diversity.  Sounds oh so familiar!  I still can’t believe this woman has […]
