If the blind guy (who sang Bruce Hornsby's "Mandolin Rain" one of my most hated songs ever) makes it through to the top 12, how will he get through all those Brady Bunch Choreographed numbers that they force the contestants to do every week? Will he be able to do the hand-jive with his white cane? Can they give him a German Shepherd to walk him through the electric slide moves that go so well with "Wake Me Up Before You Go Go?" God, those numbers should be illegal, they are worse than Fraternity Hazing and way more humiliating.
- I loved that Nathanial sang Meatloaf's "I Would Do Anything for Love - But I Won't Do That" and by "that" I'm guessing he meant go within 10 feet of a vagina. Still a sweet kid - with the fashion sense of someone who became blind circa 1982 and still loves the night life.
Was it really necessary for them to humiliate Alex the way they did? Don't get me wrong, I love to see people get humiliated on national TV as much as the next guy, but he was on the verge of tears, and my peri-menopausal hormones could barely take the anguish. I've always been a sucker for the nerdy underdog types.
When the Puerto Rican, Jorge, started to sing an Elton John song, I screamed "Dios Mio don chu sing Elton wit a Puerto Rican accent!" I was prepared to hate him, but then he got all crocodile tear-eyed (and one eye is lazy to boot) and I kind of fell in love a little - like he was a puppy at the pound (or Antonio Banderas in the movie "Philadelphia".)
