did you catch the monk reference from the "well you needn't" lyrics that he didn't write and probably hates?
putting a closing stamp on the sing-off festivities...
firstly, i am SO GLAD that nota won this thing. sonja and i sat in front of the tube monday night, lips ablaze from eating the too-hot jambalaya i cooked up during that recipe's maiden voyage, hoping that nota would pull off the win (although assuming that a bunch of young america would become infatuated with the goofy white guys from the boogerlyboobs and text their votes in until they ran out of skin on their thumbs.) we watched natasha bedingfield rush during her tune with voices of lee, nick lachey embarrass himself while trying to sing a christmas song, the wizard bobby mcferrin play it safe while improvising with the group, and smokey "i can't stop smiling because of all this botox" robinson NOT REHEARSE with nota. i thought the pussycat doll chic and her boobs did a pretty nice job with the boys glee club. ben folds was okay, but sounded like the messiah compared to boyz II men. dear lord, they were terrible. really really terrible. my kids kept looking at me with a disgustful look plastered on their grills, checking to make sure that their assessment was accurate.
nota wins. totally the right call. that singer guy from "down" joins them for a reprise of their smash performance. totally the wrong call - he sounded outclassed by david pinto. through all of this, i thought two things: 1) i wonder how they actually tabulate "america's vote" and will we ever know what the real numbers were or is it simply up to the producers' whim, and 2) am i going to hooked on reality tv now?
