I haven’t watched American Idol since the boy who looked like Apu Nahasapeemapetilon’s
gay nephew with the great hair irked people because his advancement in the singing competition had more to do with his aesthetic attributes than his singing. Didn’t he have a book deal, too? America, what’s wrong with you?
Anyway, I’m not a regular Idol watcher anymore so I had no idea that Jennifer Holliday performed last nite. I am not a fan of Ms. Holliday per se. I do enjoy watching her sing, though. It’s like, “What if Godzilla could croon?” And doesn’t she kinda look like a Black, cross-dressing version of Gargamel from The Smurfs?
The answer is yes, she does. Don’t even try to fight it. She looks like she can’t wait to fuck Papa Smurf up.
Shadiness aside, this is a real treat. To be performing alongside someone who looks like she’s going to top her with BBQ sauce and eat her or grab her and scale the Empire State Building (oh, and her voice is still strong to boot), Jessica Sanchez held her own performing with the original Dreamgirl (and don’t you ever forget it…she’ll get you). Gon’, girl.
Get into this monster mash, y’all.
