For American Idol coverage, there’s no one better than our own Michael Slezak. But we shall now be supplementing it with BWE.tv‘s new feature, American SuicIdol. Each week, Michelle Collins will “string together the worst notes from each singer in a glorious cacophony of epic proportions that may or may not make you want to off yourselves entirely.” After the jump, the inaugural composition.

I’ve been feeling for poor American Idol cast-off Paige Miles. While making the rounds on television talk shows, she’s repeatedly being subjected to video loops of her dastardly (how Simon of me!) performance of “Against All Odds.” But last night, Paige stopped by Late Show to sing for David Letterman — and, thankfully, she wasn’t forced to warble through the song she sang during what Annie Barrett called “the worst Idol performance EVER.” (Our own Mike Slezak thinks Camile Velasco’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road” more deserves that title; I vote for John Steven’s season 3 performance of “Crocodile Rock.” It was so bad, it seems YouTube has even opted to not put it on its site.) Instead, she sang Stevie Wonder’s “Living for the City.” And I have to say, dawg, she did her thang! Sure, the performance was a little season 2 — about the time when Wonder’s songs became tired on the reality show — but, hey, it was in tune! I’m guessing she’s finally gotten over that whole Michael Jackson thing. See the video after the jump! READ FULL STORY
After Kate Ward cursed me with a reminder of that Filet-O-Fish song yesterday, I woke up this morning with the annoying “I make a lasagna” song in my head from the Bertolli commercial, and I CANNOT flush it out. I need some Ke$ha, STAT!, to finally get this Carmen-crooning chef out of my head.
I know I’m not alone waking up with some strange ditty in my head. What’s on repeat in your brain today?
Rah-rah-raht the hell is going on? This is 8-year-old Laura Fontana, a contestant on Brazil’s Qual é o Seu Talento?, a talent show. Oy.
I know little girls the world over dance in leotards at ballet and gymnastics classes and all, but crawling towards the judges and singing about wanting someone’s disease? Yikes. Plus this ruins my favorite website, raraahahahromaromamagagaoohlala.com [makes noise/seizures]. Boo! If I want inappropriate kid/song pairings, I’ll watch this “TiK ToK” video.
Do you think this is over the line, PopWatchers?
