Brace yourselves, Idolatry fans. The ‘Put the Go in Gokey’ Wagon has been smashed to smithereens — by none other than my dapper co-host Dave Karger. Nope, you are not misreading this. Someone in the EW organization has stepped forward to praise Danny’s raspy vocals, his boundless energy, and even the way the producers utilized his tragic backstory. And if that’s not enough reason to press play, our Meganjoyzilla story arc takes a wild turn, Jesse Langseth boogies down one more time, and a new superhero emerges. Repeat after me, Idoloonies: “Save the rocker girl. Save the season.”
