American Idol-Season 7

In honor of American Idol's Season 7 premiere tonight, I just couldn't help but share this little gem that was e-mailed to me sometime last year. I'm not endorsing any reality show, whatsoever. I only watch Idol during the first few weeks so that I can laugh at all the awful singers who audition and get upset even though they suck.

This clip is from the Malaysian Idol (yes, several countries have them now!). This guy is trying his hand at BILLIE JEAN. Talk about scary! He looks scary and sounds scary. Come to think of it, he actually looks like one of the zombies from Michael Jackson's video, THRILLER. Most likely he just couldn't get any work after the video and just decided to audition for Idol. LOL. Enjoy!

Oh my.

I made it about 25 seconds and had to turn it off it was too painful. :D What is it with the rest of the world and Michael?


Lana Gramlich said...

Wow...that was too much (or perhaps it was not enough! *L*) The only part of Idol I enjoy is the auditions. So much humiliation, so little time.

Kimber An said...

I just can't watch it. I'm afraid. I'm sure the guy did his best, but 'Billie Jean' and Michael Jackson are not my favorite topics.

I don't watch American Idol at all, in fact. The only reality shows I've watched were 'Design Star' from the Home & Garden Channel and TLC's 'What Not to Wear.'

Gwyneth Bolton said...

I like watching American Idol during the first couple of weeks to see the bad singers too... People have no shame!


Demon Hunter said...

Everyone thinks they can sing and perform like Michael, and it ain't gonna happen! :*)

Exactly! That's all I watch! :*)

Kimber An,
You should at least try to watch the auditions. You'll laugh! :*)

You feel just like I do! :*)

The Anti-Wife said...

The auditions are a hoot, but after that - nah! I must admit those people are either really brave or really stupid to think they can sing.

Charles Gramlich said...

I've watched an occassional audition with Lana. Some are funny. Many are just sad.

Don said...

Me and the judge wearing glasses started laughing @ the exact same time.

That was an awful performace. Kinda sad. lol

Naomi said...

These hilarious awful auditions are the only part of these shows I like! Once all the freaks and weirdos have been weeded out, I don't bother watching.

David L. McAfee said...

Speaking of Idol, did you watch it last night?

Holy Cow there were some dogs on that show. This one guy wrote a song all about stalking Paula Abdul. He was creepy, too. I hope she hires some extra security for a little while...

Demon Hunter said...

I think those folks either wanna be on TV, or they really think that they can sing. :*)

You're right! But boy do I get a kick out laughing at the awful singers! :*)

I thought it was hilarious. It was one of the worst, if not, the worst one I've seen. :*)

I feel the same way. It looses its edge after the auditions. :*)

Yes, that guy was straight from the psych ward. Very creepy. He probably has women in his basement as we speak! :*X

Miladysa said...

What worries me is that I could be one of these people and not know it... well, they have no idea have they? ;)

Cora Zane said...

Eek! The world needs only 1 Michael Jackson. *_*

I have to admit I don't watch American Idol. I've seen highlights of it on the news in the mornings, but even watching the smallest clip and I start to cringe. I think it's exactly like Lana said: "So much humiliation, so little time." Yep. That pretty much sums it up. LOL!

Josephine Damian said...

DH, I was hoping someone would talk "Idol" - I was afraid I was the only one around here watching.

I LMFAO the first night, literally curled on the floor in a fetal position, crying and gasping for air since I laughed so hard.

The second night wasn't as funny, but I am enjoying the backstory parts, and that they're showing more dramatic 2-1, it-could-have gone-either-way-votes, as opposed to the obvious yes or no singers.

I'm afraid I'm on dial up and could not watch that video. :-(

Demon Hunter said...

They have no idea at all! :*)

Nobody should ever try to imitate Michael. Sorry, they just shouldn't! :*)

You are not alone! I laughed and laughed the first night as well. I am sure there are more laughs to come! :*)

Josephine Damian said...

Demon, to answer the question you left on my blog: Well I finished a fantastic writing advice book and will post a positive review - does that count?

When I find a book I can finish, I will post a review. Thought for sure the Ishiguro would be the one I was able to finish, but alas, I stopped reading it last night.

I'm off to the library right now! Hope floats!

AI: Oh yes, more laughs and big dramas, especially during the rehersals when they team up in groups of three.

Did you think there were a couple of moments already where Paula seemed a bit, er, woozy?

Ello said...

ARGH My Eyes! My Ears!

Ha ha ha! That was painful and funny all at once!

Church Lady said...

I did not need that in my head.
OMG! Scary funny. Will watch again after a glass of wine....


(I want to link you, but I need to feel an appropriate sobriquette for you. It can't be 'Billie Jean.' Can't be. So I'll wait a couple of more days and see what hits me.)

I don't know why I love American Idol, but I really do. I don't vote, but I watch every show.

Since I live on the Canadian border, I can pick up Canadian Idol, and find it has a lot better behaved try outs.

To be fair to those crazies on the try out portion of the show, they have already gone through one screening and were passed on to the Big Three's mercies; so who knows how their egos have been fluffed by that?

Holly Kennedy said...

Amazing. Why do people put themselves through this kind of humiliation?

Demon Hunter said...

Great. Share the reviews. I look forward to reading them! :*)

Painful and funny indeed! :*)

Church Lady,
Should I be worried? LOL! :*)

I just love the funny auditions--- the good ones are okay too! :*)

I don't know why they put themselves through that! :*)

Miladysa said...


3rd attempt :)



Thomas Kingsley Troupe said...

Oh. My. God.

I'm not an Idol fan and I'm convinced that the 'try-outs' are mostly set-up since they know that's when the ratings are the highest, but even still.

Painful to watch. PAINFUL.

moonrat said...

hi, darling... i read you on my google feeder, and perhaps i've been forgetting to comment periodically! but i do read you. :)

Josephine Damian said...

DH: you asked for it, you got it!

Here's a link to a pic of one thick and juicy sausage!


Demon Hunter said...

I didn't know who "The Master" was! LOL! :*)

Yeah, it was awful.

I didn't know that! I feel so honored! Cool! :*)

Thank you so much!! :*)

Lana Gramlich said...

Did I mention that "You are my brother, my best friend forever..." *ROFL* That guy was too much!

Don said...

@ demon hunter: I can't imagine a performance getting much worse than that. lol.

Demon Hunter said...

Oh, I loved that one! That guy was too funny. But he was a such a nice guy though. :*)

That is one of, if not the worst one I've seen thus far. :*)

Lana Gramlich said...

I think he truly is a nice guy, too, but it still cracked me up pretty good. ;)

daydream said...

I think that somewhere between laughing my lungs out and popping my eyes out from laughing I think I will be having nightmares seeing him do that. That was both funny and scary. Wonderful video. I like to do the very same with my country's version of Music Idol and well I laugh my ass off every time.

Demon Hunter said...

Don't get me wrong, it was hilarious! :*)

Funny and scary describes it well...lol :*)
