The show just started and the first lesson I have learned is not to ever again try to use my pup to demonstrate the dance known as “the robot.” He’s got sharp teeth, that one.
Ahhh, disco night. How I am both repelled and attracted by you.
On the one hand, I enjoy some of the songs (“Shame” by Evelyn “Champagne” King is my jam and I love the soundtrack to “Saturday Night Fever”) yet on the other there is a reason why the genre died and I, for one, do not mourn its demise.
Like with country night, the potential for disaster here is so acute that I am truly afraid for some of the “Idol” contestants. That’s the danger with some of these themes.
While we know that true talent should shine through, what does it really mean if you can’t sing a disco song well? The next “American Idol” no more has to worry about mastering disco than they do polka music.
Hmm, now there’s a theme the producers might want to consider next year.
More flames again in the intro, this time behind Ryan on stage. Is this some sort of subtle context that I am missing?
Ryan just said that Matt "lived to see another week." Well thank goodness for that.
Hold on tight, cause this is going to be something!
