2 "American Idol" things.

1. Here's a clip of Kellie Pickler doing comic interviews at the MTV Movie Awards. I've said it before, and this proves me right: that girl's a gifted comedienne who ought to have her own show.

2. "The Daily Show" tonight did a play on "American Idol": saying al-Zarqawi's "journey ends here" and launching into a montage with "You Had a Bad Day" on the soundtrack.

I will watch TDS in the morning.

I hope it doesn't piss me off.

It occurred to me today while I was doing something completely unrelated that I hope you'll notify your readers if Idol has a Neil Diamond night in the next season.

Just reading #2 made me laugh out loud.

I had difficulty viewing the video. I had to download the viewer, then restart my computer and it worked.

Re: Pickler--
"I just hugged a JEW!" [you can't write that]

She agrees with you on celebrity lips.

Sandra Bullock agrees with you on Pickler's comedic skills

"Oh my gosh! Will Ferrell just wiped my ahrmpits."

Great clip.

I hope a clip of The Daily Show bit surfaces. That sounds hilarious!

Ann Althouse said...

I was rather stunned at how Sandra Bullock seemed like a normal, friendly person.

Ann Althouse said...

Jennifer: I'm sure it will. It was a pretty long segment. I watched, wanting to see how they'd hand the Zarqawi thing, whether it would quickly become Bush-bashing. It didn't.

Jennifer said...

Me too! I've guess I've never given much thought to Sandra Bullock, but it turns out I like her.

Danny said...

The "Bad Day" segment is up here, about 2 minutes in. I'm in absolute shock as to how perfectly that song is placed in the clip. This song is horrible dreck of course, but in the hands of Daily Show writers it's a masterpiece.

Ann Althouse said...

Thanks, Danny. The clips at the official site for TDS never work for me. Anti-Mac presumably.

Jennifer said...

Danny, you are the MANNY! Thanks. Dumb as it may be, it would never have occurred to me to go straight to the source.

That whole clip was laugh out loud funny but I loved the montage. Priceless!
