"Alto"-
Thanks for your comments.

In so far as...
"The girls put together a very well planed and orchestrated theme "best friends forever"-that attracted 40 million viewers to not only watch them on January 24th, but post the most blogs in the history of American Idol the next day."

Hate to burst your bubble, but the 40 million viewers had no idea your cherubs were appearing in bikinis when they tuned in, and would have still been watching had the "best friends" never shown up on their screens at all.

As for claiming "but post the most blogs in the history of American Idol the next day" - sorry there too.

The girls did not set any records - not even close. They have miles and miles and miles to go before they even touch Kellie Pickler, or for that matter, Jonathan Jayne and Kenneth Swale, in terms of people blogging about them.

And one of the beauties of a blog such as this is that I can actually see exactly what keywords people Google when they find their way here. Right now, the girls are NOT being Googled heavily, and when they are being Googled at all, the words "naked", "boobs" and "sex" are being used with their names.

If you read back, I never said they were not good singers, in fact I praised them both for their talent, unfortunately, like those 40 million other viewers, I had to get past the obvious pimping of their bodies, teeth, hair, and vacuuous shopping jones, to get to that part.

Will they stay in the spotlight past Hollywood? Who knows. My guess would be that if one makes it to the Top 12, it would be Antonella - she has a distinctive quality to her voice that might be enough to propel her talent past her body as the public begins the voting each week.

Oh, and one last thing...your comment of "Amanda and Antonella taught the producers of American Idol how to get ratings."

Thanks for the laugh. That has to be one of the funnier things I have read in a long time. Yeah, I bet those poor, inept producers hit their knees and Thanked God that Amanda and Antonella came along and finally showed them how to get ratings. The show was really hurting before them.

Linda,

These two best friends-Amanda Coluccio and Antonella Barba--that you refer to as "rocket scientists" have had the last laugh on you and all your fellow pseudo intellectual satirists. The girls put together a very well planed and orchestrated theme "best friends forever"-that attracted 40 million viewers to not only watch them on January 24th, but post the most blogs in the history of American Idol the next day. You should have 1% of their PR smarts. Amanda and Antonella taught the producers of American Idol how to get ratings. Not bad for a couple of Jersey girls.

I just found your site today and read through all four of your AI recaps with my legs propped up on the desk and my 3-month old son resting on my lap, looking at me. Suffering from a terrible cold, I sounded like a frog with a fly stuck in its throat as I cackled my way through your writings. I discovered three things while reading: 1) laughing hysterically doesn't do much for sinus pressure but it sure loosens up the phlegm; 2) my baby smiles a lot when I laugh like a maniac; and 3) I will be back for every recap you write this season. Thank you so much!

Linda, I think you must have gotten a touch clairvoyant from last nights show, because you have read all of our minds and written everything we were thinking. I am new to your site as well, but am hooked now, can't wait till next week to see what you have to say!!!!!!!!!

Great great blog .. the AI posts are hysterical.. thanks for the great laugh..

OMG, I'm so loving this blog. The recaps are so hilarious! I'm totally hooked. Not so Mad now that I had to wait another week to see my show that AI engulfed.

I am new to your website, but I am now hooked. I am sitting at my desk at work laughing my azz off! Hilarious! See you next week!

Once again, insightful and hilarious. Love this blog!!
I think my favorite moment from last night's disaster had to be the girl calling her "father" ("Dad, don't be mad!" and his reply "Who is this?") I was waiting for him to tell her, "Stop calling me! I have a restraining order!!"

I can't wait to get to work in the mornings just to read your recaps. I am truly truly hooked. And as far as the girl with the low jeans, I honestly thought they were painted on. Because when they showed her backside, I thought for sure I was going to see some crack. I thanked the lord that I didn't. And she was "like totally freakin' out babe" when she came out calm as a cucumber. Who ever thought that running every morning at 5 and every afternoon at 1 could help you sing better. Well, now I know the secret. Off I go!

You are correct on the proper pronunciation of "tush"

So funny!! I enjoy your recap more than the show!!
