'Idol': Catch up with Mikalah, Constantine, and J. Hud.

135212__mikalah_lAmerican Idol hasn’t been on the air since May, but still, if I close my eyes, I can hear its wonky themesong in my brain (”Uh-oh-oh, oh, a-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh”) and visualize that badly animated boygirl ascending the elevator and grabbing the mic in front of that giant package of birth-control pills. I urge you to do the same before you read the following Idol-related news:

-Season 5 champ (and dashing car salesman) Taylor Hicks has gotten litigious — suing a Tennessee music producer to halt the sale of songs he recorded five years ago in Nashville, according to the Smoking Gun. Now, if I were Taylor, I’d be more concerned with getting "Do I Make You Proud" out of the public domain, but that’s just me.

-Season 4 also-ran/bedroom-eye specialist Constantine Maroulis is joining the cast of the Broadway musical The Wedding Singer. (Insert your own wedding-singer joke here.)

-Season 3’s overlooked, underrated diva Jennifer Hudson, soon to be seen in the big-screen adaptation of Dreamgirls, shared some not-so-fond recollections of her Idol days with USA Today: "I got told, ‘Everything about you is too much. Your size is too much. Your hair is too much.’ Isn’t that what a superstar is?" Tell it, J.Hud! (Just not in that pink dress, okay?)

-And finally, Season 4 finalist Mikalah Gordon (pictured) was robbed at gunpoint in Las Vegas on Wednesday. Our best wishes go out to the understandably shaken young lady for a speedy emotional recovery.

    Um.. which role will Constantine be getting? The role ALexis Arquette had in the movie?? *snark*
    And.. while I”m on that subject, why is there even a Broadway play based on The Wedding Singer??!?!

    Go Jhud and Constantine. Taylor Hicks and Mikalah I can do without, sry Idol fans :(

  • Big Momma

    I never could figure out what the big fuss was about Constantine. All he ever did was mug for the camera!

  • fl

    I never did like Constantine either

  • Where y’at, Dawlin”!

    I thought Constantine’s shining moment came when he sang “My Funny Valentine”. Bo was my guy from the get-go in season 4!

  • Big Momma

    I agree with “My Funny Valentine”, but the rest of him you could have thrown away. I loved Bo myself, when he did “Vehicle” wow!!

  • Where y’at, Dawlin”!

    Yeah,”Vehicle” was fantastic, but when he sang acapella that blew me AWAY! I thought he had it won hands down.

  • Big Momma

    Forgot about that….definitely gave me the shivereeees

  • Where y’at, Dawlin”!

    I didn’t mind that CArrie won, but I thought based on that performance that BO was the better singer.

  • Big Momma

    Hey, where are all the IDOL FANS?

  • Georgia

    Constantine on Broadway is like Bacon-Wrapped Strawberrys. It’s just covered in wrong sauce.

  • Poor Mikalah

    I feel terrible for Mikalah. Getting robbed at gunpoint must have been aboslutely terrifying.
    I wish her the best of luck in all of her endeavors!

    It must have scared her so bad her eyebrows went all jumpy. Seriously, what’s up with them?!
