Idol has come down to Haves and Have Nots

American Idol’s Top 12 looks to be a division of Haves and Have Nots. What do the contestants have or don’t have? You know, the look, the voice and the intangible stage presence that makes watching them -- and listening to them -- something you want to do.

Some of the contestants were hurt last night by bad song choices as they had to pick songs released in the year of their birth. Let me tell you, 1989 and 1990 were bad years for songs.

That being said, after last night’s performance, I have categorized the singers in the Haves and the Have Nots.


Idol Girls Give Different Stage Presence Than Guys

Quite a contrast between the guys’ American Idol performances on Tuesday and the girls’ singing on Wednesday. While the guys are all about quirky and different, the girls were a cookie-cutter bunch that played it safe.

We still need to stop the Jennifer Lopez lovefest she has with ALL the contestants. C’mon, J-Lo, everyone can’t be the best you’ve ever heard.


American Idol misses Simon

American Idol was apparently going for the peculiar when the judges decided on the top 12 guys, who debuted their collective talents on Tuesday.

While there wasn’t a Charlie Sheen-esque train wreck in the bunch, there were some low moments that started not only with the first contestant but with the judges’ comments. C’mon J-Lo, give the singers something constructive to work on – please don’t tell me we have a Paula sound-alike up there, even if she is sober. Steven Tyler was almost as luke warm, which is not something ever said before about the Aerosmith lead singer. It’s bad when Randy Jackson is the voice of reason amongst the judges.


Looking forward to a new season

Yes, sports writing may be my choice profession, but science fiction viewing trumps my list of favorite hobbies. I am setting my DVR to record the premiere of the first episode of Season 2. My question is will Arthur “Artie” Nelson (played by Saul Rubinek) be in Season 2?


Kiddos going to bed with visions of Toy Story 3 in their head

That long awaited time has finally arrived -- Toy Story 3 in 3-D will take to the big screen Friday, June 18.

If I've heard it once, I've heard it a thousand times, "Are we going to go see Toy Story 3?" Let me say I am equally as excited as any child. But after days upon days of hearing that...let's just say it ranks right up there with "Are we there yet?"
