From Zero To Hero

I just love Simon Cowell's analogies and catch phrases when he is judging the contestants on American Idol. He informed this season's, Anoop Desai that he just went from "zero to hero" and he told Adam Lambert that it was "absolute indulgent rubbish". Most of the times I agree with Simon. He pretty much tells it like it is. I think the audience has a love/hate relationship with him. They love his brutal honesty, but don't want to admit that he hits the nail on the head pretty much 90% of the time. He can be quite rude, but I am not sure of a better way to criticize someone. If you are going to say something nasty, you may as well say it "Simon Cowell" style:

"It was like Dolly Parton on helium. It sounded like some ghastly country fair."

"I feel as if I am in some ghastly restaurant on Valentine's Day and one of the waiters whips out a guitar and murders a Bryan Adams song. It was incredibly corny."

"You're like a dependable old dog."

"It was the equivalent of musical wallpaper."

"OK, you're out of tune, out of time, and you're out of here."

"Ok, zero for effort, zero for style, zero for star quality, and you know what? I'm being generous."

"You and Latin music go together like chocolate ice cream and an onion."

Do you have a favorite on American Idol yet? It is down to the top 10. My favorite is Danny Gokey. It does not look hopeful for the girls. There are only 3 of them left. I think Danny boy will be one of the last contestants, if not the next American Idol. BTW, Idol will not be on tonight due to the president speaking. Watch it on Fox Wednesday at 8 p.m. and the result show on Thursday at 9 p.m. Eastern time.

Your Idol Fan,

Love the Simon Cowell quotes! An entertaining read. I have a love/ hate relationship with idol. Some years I wacth it, other years I don't. Haven't had an opportunity to watch it this year, maybe I'll try to catch it tomorrow.

Heehee! I also haven't been following AI, but the misanthrope in me just LOVES the Simon quotes. *sigh* And he gets paid big bucks to say exactly what's on his mind...must be a nice job :-)

I don't watch American Idol. I am not a Simon fan. I think he takes great pleasure in being vicious mean and nasty. I tend to avoid people like that -- in real life and on the television. Come to think of it, I rarely turn on the TV any more at all.

How much are they paying you to advertise? this season I have not decided who I like...I know many people like Danny boy. I will let you know when I decide

Simon always sums up exactly what I'm thinking. He certainly has an arrogance about him but I truly think he has a big heart. Love Danny Gokey and Adam!

My favorite guy is Adam, after last nites performance, if he doesnt win, I will be surprised. My favorite girl is Megan, she has a very distinct song voice.
