Indian Idol Will Rock You… Sing it!

Posted in Music, Television with tags , , , , , , , on February 25, 2011 by Jordan

I have no idea how many years American Idol has been around but if I had to hazard a guess I would say about 10.  I’ve never really gotten into American Idol but I have tuned in enough throughout the years to have a handle on the state of the show. I think it’s safe to say that “Idol” has become rather stale in recent years and has correspondingly spawned very few stars (if any) since Carrie Underwood.  That said, the addition of the humorous and eccentric Steven Tyler to this season has been a nice touch.   He is after all, Jim Henson’s greatest creation.

 

In an attempt to find some actual singing talent, I’ve been forced to abandon American Idol and engage some of the other national “Idol” shows.  I tried Canadian Idol but it has been downhill since Kalan Porter (Not like Kalan Porter was a real high point in Canadian music… am I right or am I right?).  I gave British Idol a go but it produces nothing but Liam Gallaghers who dump beer on the judge’s heads or Chris Martins who just seem to make the Brits seem a little bit gayer.  Consequently, it wasn’t until I stumbled across Indian Idol that I actually found something worthwhile.

 

Rather than have a billion Indians show up to a cricket stadium to audition for the show’s top 20 contestants, preliminary contestants send in their audition tapes.  The Indian Idol judges sift through millions of tapes and release only the best of the best to the Indian public.  We at The Whole Ball of Wax have gone through the best of the best and in our opinion this is the Best of the best.

 

Enjoy!

Is Victoria Beckham Derek Foreal?

Every time I see Victoria Beckham (pictured taking a nap on a work bench) on T.V., I do three things: cringe, laugh and turn the channel.  Is she serious?  My god, how do people even give her the time of day anymore?  The Spice Girls and David Beckham reached their peak in 1998!  So I have to ask, why do I keep seeing this skeleton with eyes like a deer on T.V.?

Some would say, “Well, she was in the Spice Girls.”  And I would say, “Yeah, but she was the worst one.”  Others might say, “Well, she’s married to David Beckham.”  And I would say, “Yeah, but he’s washed up.”  Some would even say, “She’s super hot!”  And I would say, “Yeah you’re right she is super hot…if being hot means looking like a freshly planted sapling.”

One of my guilty pleasures in life is watching the audition episodes of American Idol because Simon is such an ass to people that waste his time it honestly makes my day.  For those who don’t watch the nonsense that is American Idol, they often have a guest judge to assist with the main judges in the audition episodes.  There were some respectable music people involved, Shania Twain, Mary J. Blige, Avril Lavigne, and Katy Perry to name a few.  Then one episode Victoria Beckham was the guest judge.  Victoria Beckham selecting talented singers makes about as much sense as taking marital advice from Tiger Woods.  Sure, she was a Spice Girl and Tiger Woods was married but they sucked at it!  However, I have to give Victoria Beckham credit, she stuck to her guns.  Well-dressed people would stand in front of the judges and basically shit on the stage and Victoria would say things in her stupid accent like, “Oh my god, I just love yaw shoes and yaw hai!  It’s a yes faw me faw shaw.” Simon would then look at her like she’s retarded… because she is and say something like, “What does her appearance have to do with it?” And Victoria would say, “It’s pawt of the total package.”

It was at this point that I realized that Victoria Beckham was not in search of the next American Idol but in search of the next Posh Spice. The show would be called America’s Next Top Imported Bag of Bones and it would be the search for the woman out there who lacks musical talent, dresses well and is willing to have as many surgeries as it takes to have eyes that look like a deer’s blinded by head lights and clavicles that are so pointy that they must be checked prior to entering airport security.

“Get out of my face Victoria Beckham and get off my T.V.!”

P.S. your husband sounds like a frail old woman when he talks.
