First time for everything

So I watched World Idol. I've only seen about ten minutes of one episode before this, so this was my Idol cherry.

I voted for Kurt and for Ryan. Both of them had small strikes against them (too much eyes closed action versus that odd fast vibrato) but they were the two I liked the most. I would have voted for Will or Guy, but I hated the arrangements of their songs so much that I couldn't get into them at all.

The winners in the If I Were Watching With The Volume Off category are Heinz and Will together (yeah, baby, together!!!) I usually don't go for pretty boys, but I couldn't look away when either were on.

. . . and Kelly. I thought she was amazing, the best one up there (I have a feeling that Will is just as good, but for that arrangement). A little too much goose-like neck action at the end of her song, but I was still blown away.

Other thoughts that popped up while watching
-That movie Win a date with Tad Hamilton looks really cute. Can't wait to see it.
-Did you catch Kate Mulgrew's voice in the Ford Freestar commercial? Kick Ass!!! Which van did Leonard Nemoy support back in the day?
-Did you catch that Fuji digicam commercial? Something about that lady reminds me of Madeline Kahn, which is a very good thing in my book. I love and miss her.

I too want to see 'Win a date with Tad Hamilton'. I've watched the trailer @ apple.com like 5 times.

World Idol
I tuned in last night along with my Mom. I enjoyed the very last guy...even if he did have bad teeth. He did a good job with the U2 cover. What was his name?

And what the heck was wrong with the Polish judge? He was just annoying. I think he was trying to outdo Simon or something.

Kurt. He was one of the two I voted for.

The Polish judge was wayyyy out there. I thought the little Polish girl was going to jump the stage and attack him.

Simon was funny last night. He didn't really attack the contestants. He attacked the judges! The Canadian judge said something negative to Kelly, and Simon told him that he wasn't fit to judge her. It's kind of funny; once he decides he likes you, he supports you all the way.

Re: World Idol
Simon appears to be pretty loyal once he's deemed you worthy.

It was far more amusing to watch the judges bicker than to watch some of the performances. The Polish girl's pant leg really bothered me. I couldn't focus on her performance because of it. She did have a lot of spunk, though.

I wonder who'll end up winning.
