The Greatest Duet...in the World!



Um...Alright...I guess American Idol decided to take it up a creepy notch in the wake of Sangina's leaving by placing a hologrammed Elvis alongside Celine Dion so they could sing the greatest duet the world has ever heard, thus making television history. That's literally how Idol was trying to spin this strange event. My favorite parts are when Celine pretends to look at the fake twinkly lights that have created Elvis, as if she was really standing on the stage with the dead legend. Which begs the question, if you could be standing on the American Idol stage next to any hologram of a dead celebrity, who would you choose? I would choose the late, great O.D.B. and we could sing "Baby I got your money" for all the hungry children in Africa. Bono told me in the broadcast that you can change the world with music. So, hungry children of the world, feast upon the lyrics "You can call me dirty, and then lift up your skirt" and quench your thirst with "God made dirt and dirt will bust your ass". Oh...you're still hungry? Bono didn't mention that.

Poor Elvis!
Celine should better "think twice" before doing stuff like that ...

Dear god that's creepy. It reminds me of that Orville Redenbacher commercial -- the one where his corpse talks. The one that makes me want to DIE.

Damn I missed it! I thought I would stop watching when Sanjina was voted off, and then I go and miss this HORRIBLE piece of television, damn!
