I was relieved when they said that was Carole Bayer Sager. I'd thought maybe it was Joan Collins on a really bad night.

There's no question that long established entertainers would be gonged off this show faster than you could say "Da ya think I'm sexy"I mean seriously, can you just imagine Rod Stewart rasping a Whitney Houston standard to Cowell?And you're right, Joni Mitchell would be lambasted... but so would many others - INCLUDING JEWEL. Hey she's okay, but I doubt she'd make it past round 3 or 4. I know it sounds sanctimonious, but this show, and in fact most reality shows, highlight the worst in people. I'm constantly astounded the get watched and even more disappointed that they won't go away. Thank God I'm free to change the channel. (Even though I seem to be the only one who does.)


I would have paid cash money if someone had started singing to Carole, "What's it all about, Lassie?"


I think if you pull up the hair on the back of Sager's head you'll find a giant Chip Clip.


So, Ken, what is the Hollywood protocol for reacting to a facelift or other surgical enhancements? I would hate to make a faux pas and ruin my fabulous future in the show business. Do you ignore the elephant in the room? Do you compliment (It's not nearly in the Joan Rivers category.) Do you empathize? (wow, that's gotta hurt?...sorry I didn't mean to scream...It's going to look a lot better on television)...free associate? (They're showing The Mummy on Showtime tonight...or that reminds me, I'm out of Glad Wrap).


Let's not forget how fun it is to bounce up and down on a trampoline.

My wife and I agreed that Sager looked like she went to the same plastic surgeon and hair stylist s Joan Collins.


Isn't this Carole Bayer Sager?http://www.danvebber.com/museum/artifacts/raccoon.jpg


OMG, last night was great!BTW - sorry to go a bit off topic but I read online that Season 4 American Idol Semi-Finalist Sarah Mather after being voted off AI has gone her own way looking find musical stardom. Check out her taking her shot through the newest music competition, Music Nation (www.musicnation.com), an online video music competition that is giving 3 artists, one in each of the rock, pop and urban genre a recording contract with Epic Records….Check out her video “Lost Then Found” http://www.musicnation.com/v53dI wonder if any other AI alums will go this route???(lets go Elliot Yamin - who was robbed of his win last year by Taylor Hicks!!)


This season seems like the producers are getting meaner and meaner...going out of their way to provoke the disillusioned wannabes into mental breakdowns. I keep watching though because I can't believe that people will do anything for a moment in the sun. (I admit I'm an AI fan, although I can watch an hour show in 15 min. thanks to my DVR!)


The mother daughter duo...the daughter desperately needed a bra...that was just gross.I agree about Simon..without him there isn't a show..the guy is hot!I thought Jewel came across kind of snobby.


Hard lesson learned last night. I TiVo'd American Idol, but the second hour cut off, because I'd accidentally programmed two other shows at that time... So, in a nutshell, re: New York auditions... after the energetic & corpulent black woman won some decent comments, but continued to sing, Paula started looking ill... Then it cut off... What happened to her... And were there any other highlights in that second hour you can quickly run my way? Thanks for indulging me.

I'm rooting for Melinda Doolittle all the way.Although, part of me wants to see a final between the revolutionary guy and Sundance Head. I want to see them after the stylists start to work on them. On the other hand, the Castro-ish guy could be this decades Johnny Cash and release an album, "Live from Gitmo Prison".

LA Guy

I think it's well known that of the thousands who audition not everyone gets an audience with the three judges. The contestants are pre-screened by the producers and they are essentially looking for people who are very good or very bad.Sometimes I think the scowl on Simon's face is him thinking "I'm going to kill those bloody producers for making sit through this crap."


Hah! I grew up with Ian. He's changed a bit since I last saw him in junior high school.

Tom Quigley

I saw Rosie O'Donnell make the comment the other day in a sound bite on one of those infotainment shows that they shouldn't put delusional and mentally unbalanced people on TV and ridicule them.... I say "Why not?" We see the delusional people who run our government every day on TV and no one seems to give it a second thought...


I know you were joking about the Bjork theme night but I'd love to see some of those prissy kids who think singing like Brittney Spears will make them big try and handle "It's Oh So Quiet." And then laugh when their lyranx snap like rubber bands.

The Master

I'm sure Rosie O'Donnell didn't really mean it when she said that they shouldn't put delusional and mentally unbalanced people on TV, as if they took her advice, Rosie would be out of work.


Whenever I watch American Idol auditions I get an inkling of how George Bush managed to get the top job.

Mike Barer

I thought that it was Carole King. I tend to get my Caroles and Neils mixed up.
