Embarrassingly enough, I’m completely addicted to Fox’s American Idol-like dance show. And it’s a major addiction, meaning there are episodes saved on my TiVo just so that I can watch them again (along with season finales of The Office and Lost, episodes of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, my favorite Mark Ruffalo movie, and the last half of Gremlins.)
This week’s episode was a nail-biter; it was down to the top ten and there wasn’t anyone that I was rooting for to get kicked off (Kameron and Jaime, not you! Not you!) and judge Mary Murphee always does this thing where she starts her critique like she hated it and then does a surprise 180 and loves it. Example: I don’t know how you guys can stand on this stage, because…(pause)…YOU WERE TOTALLY HOT TONIGHT!
But then the second most embarrassing thing happened to me. I realized that I actually liked a John Meyer song. I know, I know, I couldn’t believe it either. But the contestants all had to do this anti-war solo dance and interpret it in their own way, and it was choreographed to Meyer’s “Waiting for the World to Change.” I mean, come one, give me a break. It was anti-war and kind of emotional and the choreography was awesome and Neil did this amazing jump, and Jaime’s extensions, and then Kameron with the air punch…
What is wrong with me.
90 Stars. And right on to judge Nigel Lithgoe for being pissed about having to apologize for airing something anti-war. Come on, get off it people, when are you going to wake up and realize that supporting the war makes you a huge idiot? And I’ll fight anyone who criticizes SUTYCD. Watch me.
