“Hey Paula (American Idol Mix)”

Yes, I watch American Idol. I watch, but I don’t vote. If I did, I’d cast mine for Danny. He reminds me of Michael McDonald, and I always liked the Doobie Brothers. Kris is a nice guy, but I didn’t even know his name until there were only five contestants left. Idols should be more memorable than that. Adam is certainly unforgettable, but the high-pitched scream thing really bothers me. I guess it’s fine when he’s singing just one song, but I can’t imagine hearing that song after song after song. But what do I know? I’m no judge. As for them… do I think Simon is a pompous ass? Sure, and he gets really bad hair cuts. But I also think his comments are usually dead on. Randy is pretty good. I really like Cara. I think she gives great, constructive feedback. And I think she’s cute. And Paula? Well, I feel the same way about her as Anderson Cooper does. (In case you didn’t hear his comments on the Tonight Show, CLICK HERE.) I don’t mind that she’s a flake, but to get her to say anything negative about a contestant they’d have to sing as bad as ME. (Just because I can write songs, that doesn’t mean I can sing them. Trust me.)

SPECIAL NOTE: My daughter is a guest vocalist on this parody, so I guess this month we’re Parody & Son & Daughter…

submit to reddit Does Simon make your skin crawl? Does Paula make your head spin? Love ‘em or hate ‘em, the only thing more fun than judging American Idol contestants, is judging the judges!
