Hello, fellow Idoloonies! Please use this blog post to chat liiiive! about Disco Night on American Idol. I’ll be back shortly after 9 p.m. with my snap judgment, and again at the crack of dawn with my full TV Watch recap. In the interim, a poem for you all (and an interview with the un-disco-y Scott MacIntyre after the jump):
Hide the children, plug your ears
It’s Disco Night on Idol
In past years this theme tended to
Make folks feel homicidal
Remember sexy Haley
Tried to turn the beat around
She caterwauled and howled
Drove said beat into the ground
Or how ’bout poor Josh Gracin
Tackling funky “Celebration”
What he did to Kool and Gang
Was an abomination
And then there’s Jasmine Trias
Panting through “It’s Raining Men”
Just play the YouTube version
You’ll taste bile once again
So let’s hope the top seven
Learn from Idols’ past mistakes
If Lil tries Donna Summer
My fist will clench and shake
Let’s hold back on the Bee Gees
That goes for Kris and Danny
Adam, Matt, and Noop Dawg too
Or we’ll spank you on your fannies
Perhaps tonight won’t be so bad
We’ll have to wait and see
I’ll squeal inside if someone sings
“You Dropped a Bomb on Me”
