Cha-cha, cha-cha-cha.

ETA:Per Gray, “Just To Feel That Way” will be uploaded via MP3 to radio stations early next week (if all goes well, because there “could always be kinks). A/C and Hot A/C will be the first markets targeted, with Top 40 only a possiblity at this point. Thank God.

Inexplicably Mediterranean Taylor.Congratulations…sort of…to Taylor Hicks, whose self-titled album was officially certified platinum. Not jiving with those just-past-gold sales numbers you’re used to seeing? That’s because the RIAA certifications are based on albums shipped (technically, sold to stores), not on albums sold to individual consumers. Ahh, well, it’s still a nice plaque for Taylor to hang on his wall, I guess. And what does Taylor himself have to say about his album sales these days? “I can’t speculate or worry about something I have no control over, like the record-buying public,” Hicks says rather matter-of-factly. “The show was the greatest opportunity I’ve ever had… Now I have to move on and be Taylor Hicks.” Good man.

Also, be sure to catch Taylor appearing with season three winner Fantasia Barrino on Larry King Live this Thursday night.

Recently fugged Katharine McPhee continues to support the theory that she is merely an actress playing the part of a singer (and also that she has the emotional maturity of a fourteen-year-old) by racking up yet another acting gig. This one isn’t so prestigious as a Golden Globe-winning comedy, unfortunately. Kat’s people managed to pester the creators of the Lonelygirl15 “internet serial” into writing a role for Ms. McPhee. Now, silly me, I thought that this whole Lonelygirl15 thing was exposed as a big ol’ sham, with an actress playing the part of the supposed main character. Huh. Oh well. Viewers of the webcast will also be treated to one of Katharine’s songs being played in the background. Oh, happiness. Yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, I’m just jellus that Taylor didn’t get his own cameo appearance in a…YouTube melodrama. That must be it.

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. "
