I turned on the TV about halfway-ish through theAmericanIdol finale lastnight and when the sight of Frankie Valli performing with the losing dudes hit my eyes, I immediately scrambled for safety by changing the channel to anything but that. I was one hundred percent sober and it was too much messiness for my eyes, ears and soul to take. The only gore I want to see on a Thursday night is Dr. Lecter making meat flan out of human bone marrow on Hannibal. But I probably should’ve kept watching that mess to catch the unicorn nightingale that is Mimi possibly lip-synch for her life!
While wearing Barbie’s Christmas time wedding gown circa 1987, Mimi coated the ear canals of her lambs with pixie dust when she sang a medley of some of her hits. The lambs ate it up with a Hello Kitty spoon, but some people on Twitter declared that Mimi’s lip-synch performance was so bad that a deaf baby high on Novocaine could’ve done a better lip-synch job. But Mimi’s reps tell Entertainment Tonight that she did yodel out organic musical notes and did not move her mouth to a track:
Well, ET can set the record straight as Mariah’s reps tell us she absolutely sang the entire medley — Vision of Love, Make It Happen, My All, Hero, We Belong Together and her new single #Beautiful — completely live! Not only that, but we hear she delighted the crowd in between live shots by singing additional hits.
To me, sometimes it looks like she’s really singing and other times it looks like she’s yawning while Windex-ing an imaginary window. Who knows and I doubt Mimi really cares. It’s only American Idol, bitch isn’t coming back next season and I’m sure her final paycheck from FOX cleared before she went onstage. Mimi is onto other things like overseeing the design of a giant replica of a unicorn’s anus for her and Nick to exchange their vows in front of on their fifth and a half wedding anniversary.
Here’s the chick who won, the chick who lost, a deranged chola Muppet and Glamberace at last night’s season finale party.
NBC announced today that whenJimmy Fallon takes overThe Tonight Show from Jay Leno, SethMeyers will slide into Jimmy’s spot as the host of Late Night. Yeah, typing that made me picture Seth sliding into Jimmy’s spot and I don’t know how I feel about that image.
Because what late night really needs is more white men, Seth will take over Late Night next spring and Lorne Michaels will executive produce. Here’s what the head bitch at NBC had to say about this:
“We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation. His years at SNL‘s Weekend Update desk, not to mention being head writer of the show for many seasons, helped him hone a topical brand of comedy that is perfect for the Late Night franchise”.
Charles Ramsey, Tan Mom and Sweet Brown were all ROBBED! Since Up All Night was finally thrown into the dead pile, I was hoping that Maya Rudolph as Ava would host Late Night… Oh well, hopefully this means that Stefan will finally take over Weekend Update. It’s his destiny.
NBC entertainment chairman Bob Greenblatt confirmed the hiring as he said:
“We think Seth is one of the brightest, most insightful comedy writers and performers of his generation. His years at SNL‘s Weekend Update desk, not to mention being head writer of the show for many seasons, helped him hone a topical brand of comedy that is perfect for the Late Night franchise.”
But don’t worry, Lorne Michaels isn’t throwing a hissy fit over the move because he’s also executive producer of Late Night!
Seth commented on the funny job switch that includes the same boss:
“I only have to work for Lorne for five more years before I pay him back for the time I totaled his car. Twelve-thirty on NBC has long been incredible real estate. I hope I can do it justice.”
We have a feeling Seth will certainly do it justice!
Seth plans to stay on SNL until he has to start prep for Late Night which is expected to begin during or after the Winter Olympics.
GinniferGoodwin normally looks like the black sheep of the Keebler Elves or a Garbage Pail Kid to me, but at the Met Gala lastnight she looked like a Garbage Pail Kid after getting a glamorous eyebrow makeover from Harald Glööckler. Stunning. Perfect. Exquisite. When she’s done with those brows, they should pull them off her face, put a gold frame around them and hang them on the biggest wall at the Met.
