Let’s talk about this seasons Fox television reality series American Idol. Did you get to see the incredible David Archuleta singing John Lennon’s “Imagine” this past week? I swear he grabbed my heart with his voice and put it somewhere in heaven.
Is Archuleta in Spanish a type of pork chop or a special kind of bean? Either way David’s endearing and touching performances are quickly becoming the show’s favorite.
The 16 year old kid, known for singing “I’m Not Going” from Dreamgirls to the first season contestants (including Kelly Clarkson and our own Jim Verraros) must be living in some bizzare fantasy world come true, as he grew up feeding on the fantasy created by the popular reality singing contest. Art imitates television.
I think however, his genius and wisdom in choosing such a song and the way he performed it made him the clear winner not just in this contest but for popular music as well. Ricky Martin is shaking his bon bon out of nervousness, because like it or not, David is coming for his job.
Yawn-worthy David Carrico has grabbed this seasons “huh” factor as it’s been revealed that he’s actually wearing a WIG during the contest, making “Idol” producers freak out. Unfortunately we might never find out if his blonde locks are made out of polyester since he and Alaina Whitaker, Jason Yeager and Alexandrea Lushington got the boot last night.
Meanwhile we’re here all ecstatic because we got a huge box of designer underwear in all shapes, colors and sizes in the mail, obviously wanting us to plug them on today’s show. How’s me doing a handstand in them work for you Danial Webster Design?
Join Sal-E, Marc Felion and me Fausto Fernos as we dish it up on the human torch cyclist getting his “flame on” in Poland, robot dogs for the elderly and dog loving for the sick and twisted.
How do you measure 5,012 performances? How does one measure the run of a landmark Broadway musical? How about love? Well love wont pay the rent.
Poor RENT! The iconic 90s musical that made Americans face the fact that gay people, drug users and trannies lived among them has lost their lease literally on Broadway. After 12 years the musical will close in June making it the seventh longest running musical in Broadway history.
Rent launched the careers of a stellar group of young actors, including Taye Diggs, Wilson Jermaine Heredia (who won the show’s only Tony for acting as Angel), Jesse L. Martin, Idina Menzel, Adam Pascal, Anthony Rapp and Daphne Rubin-Vega.
And also that black guy on Law and Order, but we forget his name.
Seriously speaking, this great musical helped to carry the message and visibility of gay men struggling with AIDS that Tony Kushner’s Angels in America helped deliver to audiences four years earlier. Although touring productions will continue for the time being, you’d better catch this musical on Broadway before the doors close on June 1.
