American Idol

Fox Finally Pulling Plug on ‘American Idol’ in 2016, Because Honestly, Who Cares Anymore?

There are a lot of people who are going to miss American Idol, and I certainly didn’t mean to insult them with the title of this post. Obviously they care, and their feelings matter, damnit.

That said, the facts are the facts. NBC’s The Voice is now the cool pop singer talent search show. American Idol is out of gas, and has been slipping in the ratings every year. The executives over at Fox are doing the smart thing by making Season 15 its last. If they plan it right, bringing in all the past judges and fan favorite contestants, they can actually make the finale a huge television event.

“We really wanted to do it in a way that felt special and celebratory,” explained Fox TV CEO Gary Newman, who then said they never seriously considered moving the show back to summer. “The right way to send this show out is…in the time period it’s had for the last few years.”

Newman is right, too. American Idol deserves to get a memorable sendoff. It didn’t just make Fox a TV juggernaut in the new millennium. Together with Survivor, Idol revolutionized the television industry, ushering in the golden age of reality TV.

Sure, in 14 seasons Idol has only produced a three legit pop stars with actual talent: Kelly ClarksonCarrie Underwood, and Jennifer Hudson. (Sorry, Daughtry. No offense, Clay Aiken.) But producing legit pop stars was never the real objective of the show. The real objective of the show was to make co-workers argue about how much they hate Simon Cowell, and help people like William Hung sell 242,000 records. Which he did.

So enjoy your victory lap, American Idol. You kinda suck now, but you used to be a huge deal, and we salute you.

Jennifer Lopez American Idol Cleavetastic Appearance

Jennifer Lopez has more than got it. She done got it. And got it all over. Including some truly wonderful cleavage she was showing off at an American Idol event in Los Angeles. I’m not sure what the event was, perhaps the American Idol funeral if we should be so lucky, but I’m guessing more so a promotional event for the umpteenth upcoming season. That show may never die a natural death. Still, it brings us such wonderments as Jennifer Lopez and her MILFtastic sweet views in showy gowns throughout the year. That’s more than enough to get me to stop bitching about craptastic television I only have to watch when visiting my niece.

Jennifer Lopez, don’t every let anybody tell you to start wearing more clothes. They’re wrong. Enjoy.

Jennifer Lopez Smoking Hot at Fox Party for American Idol

Jennifer Lopez looked pretty damn amazing at the Fox event promoting American Idol, which is hard to believe is still on the air, but it is, and that means more of Jennifer decked out and showing off her veteran skills.

The 44-year old singer, dancer, and all around Latina hottie shows zero signs of slowing down, and with Idol just beginning, we can count on four months of some pretty hot looks from Jennifer, maybe even another silly song debut where she will roll around on the floor in a revealing outfit and lip-synch something pretty horrible. I care not. I just want to see Jennifer rolling around on the floor like a sweaty hot mom with an amazing derriere. Give it to me, Idol. Enjoy.

Mariah Carey Brings Out the Big Guns for American Idol Finalist Party

Granted, this is the seventeenth Finalist Party of the current American Idol season. I don’t watch the show, because I like girls and football, but it does seem they have a blowout confetti after party pretty much now every single week to celebrate some culling of the amateur pop star singing herd.

And that was the only excuse Mariah Carey needed to bring out her twins for cleavetastic display at the after-party. Combine those with a strong-ass pair of Spanx and a tight dress and you have the makings of a now 40-something diva who is still very much stacked and intact. You go, girl, as the kids like to say that I like to punch in the abdomen. Mariah Carey, still working it. Enjoy.

Jennifer Lopez MILFy Hot on the Set of ‘American Idol’

I honestly don’t blame Jennifer Lopez for she-banging the stuffing out of dudes 20-years her junior. This super hot mom still has it all going on, and if she wants to knock boots like an early 20-something still, all the power to her (granted, I have some suggestions for her as to potential younger partners in the bedroom).

On the set of American Idol yesterday, Jenny from the Block looked all kinds of sextastic hot in her little body hugging boob-snugging outfit of some expense I am sure. The only cost to us is perhaps some pain in the area where we stupidly chose 501′s over relaxed fit jeans because we think a salesgirl might have winked at us when we tried them on, though clearly we were probably imagining it. Enjoy.

Pia Toscano Badonkadonk Inspection Courtesy of Mark Ballas

I am not prepared to say whether or not I watch American Idol, I refuse to blemish my record as the undeniably most manly man in the history of mandom (shoutout to Haley, you go girl on Season 10!) But, without admitting a thing, I will say that the one sextastic surprise on this season’s Idol has been, really, was, Pia Toscano, the curvy Italian-American church girl from Howard Beach, who despite being unable to properly shake her booty, still had some very nice junk in her trunk (and her bosom) for a seemingly proper girl. Apparently, it caught the eyes of numerous man-celebs about town as well, including Dancing with the Stars dancer, Mark Ballas, who apparently is now holding the unique title of only straight dancer in Hollywood. So, Mark snapped up Pia Toscano since her surprisingly early boot to her badonkadonk a couple weeks ago from the show and rumor has it that he’s been fondling the diva-to-be all about Tinsel Town. Well, rumor confirmed, because we now have a booty-groping confirmation shot from yesterday on the DWTS set where the surprisingly straight dancer laid full-LeBron-palm on the Pia Toscano asstastic. Ain’t young love grand? Enjoy.
