Justin's Not-So-Secret 'Idol' Ambitions

16120__jt_lOooooooooooooooh! Juicy! Justin Timberlake has partnered with Yahoo! and the Grammys to invite the general public to audition via video to perform with him at the award show in February. Wait a minute…what’s that smell, people?

Oh, I know what it is. Smells a lot to me like American Idol, no? Yes. Which is unexpected, given what JT had to say back in August’s issue of Fashion Rocks about Idol and this year’s winner, Taylor Hicks: "He can’t carry a tune in a bucket." It seems Justin can’t carry his Grammy tune either — not alone, anyway!

Well, he did have this to say about Idol: "I despise it, and yet I’m completely fascinated." Translation: I’m addicted!

By the way, a word of advice to the Grammy contest winner: wear lots of layers. After all, Justin’s been known to have the occasional wardrobe-malfunction problem with his duet partners, both female and male.

    Darn you to heck Helin! You totally thought of my JT joke before I could even write it. So um…
    Uh, whoever goes on stage better hope JT is nicer to his colleagues than he is his ex girlfriends. It’s just not as good as “whoever wins had better hope they keep their clothes on”.

    THe real question is: Why is everyone fascinated with this idiot?

  • yawn

    Who cares about Timberfake…….write more about DAUGHTRY!!!!!!!!

  • V

    Ooh, I’ll do it just as long as we get to sing “D*ck in a Box!”

  • wrenn

    Gee, yet ANOTHER reason not to bother watching the Grammys this year….

  • Josh

    I would like Justin’s voice if he didn’t always use that annoying falsetto the whole time. I don’t like Taylor’s voice either. No thanks to both.
    And, um, didn’t he and others get their start on shows with even LESS of a pedigree than ‘Idol’? Hey JT, you’re no Annette!

  • Millie

    What a treat! Justin Timberfake on stage once again for me to throw popcorn and berries at my televison set. Wooohooo!!

  • Debra L.

    I don’t understand why so many people are enamored with this skinhead looking freak.

  • Shel

    JT is certainly right about the gray-haired one. Taylor Hicks does sound awful. JT should sing a duet with Chris Daughtry – that would be interesting.

  • bb

    Timberfake would never do a duet with Chris……Chris would sing him off the stage!

  • bECKY

    Agreed – I definitely don’t understand this guy’s appeal. . . . a good example of ‘celebrity’ instead of talent. (along with britney, paris, hilary,etc etc)

  • Juju

    Becky you know that’s right! When it comes to talent Britney Spears tops the pop world with talentless vocals that make me want to cry. If she did not appear practically naked, she would be without followers. She is just plain awful. And Paris Hilton is the bottom of the barrel.

    Timberlake is sooooo homely. He brought “sexy back?” Ugh. Not if he was the last man on earth.
