'American Idol': Simon Cowell Booer of the Night

Posted on

The first winner of what could turn out to be my One-Part Series is a relative (I assume) of Top 10 Men contestant Todrick Hall. This nicely pressed cherub’s facial contortion and general air of disinterested doom perfectly capture the mindset of the viewing public during last night’s American Idol. Bizarro Sissy Spacek behind him isn’t impressed by Simon’s frankness either — he told Todrick he sounded like he was performing at a theme park and is “getting it completely and utterly wrong.”  Meanwhile, Todrick’s mom is just pissed Simon called him “Tundrik.”

Congratulations, kid!
