Smooth sailing can be a bad thing.

Meredith Ochs reviewed Taylor Hicks for NPR’s “All Things Considered.” She started with the general disparaging remarks (paunchy, dances like a frat boy, looks like the love child of Jay Leno, etc.) The gist of the review is that there are too many ballads –it’s just too smooth a ride. And Ochs, like most reviewers, believes that the finest songs on the CD are the ones Hicks wrote himself–especially “Soul Thing,” where the reviewer feels Hicks does his best vocal work. Ochs wishes that Hicks had recorded more of his original material and concludes “Listen up, Taylor: America chose YOU to be its Idol; let’s hear more of what you’ve got.” I agree. Listen to the review here.

Classy!Katharine McPhee wasn’t nominated for a Golden Globe last night…but that didn’t stop her from bring out two of her own. Seriously, McPhee, there’s “push-up” and then there’s “your cups runneth over.” WAY over. Or maybe pushing your boobs up so high that they look like water balloons about to burst at any second is the new classy. Kat’s the expert; she would know. Katharine will also appear on FOX News’ “The BIG Story with John Gibson” tonight. Ahh, John Gibson…I used to watch him back in the day (1998) when he was on MSNBC and relentlessly covering the Lewinsky scandal. Memories, memories.

    You are soo funny…I was thinking the same thing about the “globes” when I saw that. What is her stylist thinking? Oh wait, maybe it’s her momma…she seems to do the same thing!

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. "
