“I would definitely ponder the thought.” —Taylor Hicks, when asked whether he would ever consider making a “true” blues album. He also told chat participants to be on the lookout for an upcoming music video. Hmm…

Katharine McPhee gave a short interview on her way to the Billboard Awards…and even sang a snippet of “Open Toes.” She called the song “cheesy,” but also a “girl’s anthem,” and seems to be doing her darnest to promote the thing. (I still can’t get over what this beautiful girl is doing wasting her beautiful voice on lyrical crud like “Open Toes,” but that’s just me…)

Paris Bennett has been signed to a record deal! Congratulations, Paris!

AOL is streaming the entire Dreamgirls soundtrack, for anyone who can’t wait until Christmastime to go see the movie. The buzz on Jennifer Hudson’s performance of “And I Am Telling You” has been outstanding, and after listening to the track, I can tell you that buzz has been spot-on.

    Thanks for the Dreamgirls link – Jennifer really does sound amazing on that song. Day-um! She made me get all teary-eyed – I actually had to pause the song and go do something else because I was about to lose it. It’ll be better when I can crank it in my car and not have to worry about my co-workers looking at me funny.

What the kids are sayin’

"I hate them all. The judges, TPTB, the blatant manipulation, the songs, the contestants, everything. I'm a die-hard Cook fan, but for the love of god, at least try to look like you're enjoying yourself up there! Please? Syesha was awesome but she ruined it by being completely shameless and disgusting. Yes, being on American Idol is exactly like the civil rights movement, except for the part where you're fighting to make the world a better place."

"All I can say after the disgusting display tonight of favoritism towards the mediocrity that is David A. - good luck trying to market and make money off of that kid, American Idol. (Not to mention good luck dealing with his father.) All the teeny boppers may buy up his American Idol coronation single, but they will quickly forget about him before the album comes out. And I shudder to think of a David A. album - song after song of unrelenting sameness and heavy breathing. Why they are pimping him for the win is beyond me."

"This show was simply a hot buttered mess tonight. And Jason "needs to be arrested for what he did to I Shot the Sheriff. But I hope he stays. He amuses me. "
