This is American Idol. And the winner is…

With the selection of a new judges’ panel, the producers of American Idol hoped to get a boost in the ratings. The star-and glamour-power of J Lo and Steven Tyler has built up new interest in the show after years of dwindling viewership and exit of its most visible judge. They have done their jobs well enough to increase the visibility of the interestingly curious mix of contestants this year.

But watch more closely and you will realize that the actual winners of the American Idol 10 are these judges – it’s a case of the cart pulling the horse when the horse was hired to pull the cart. The show has injected new life into the sagging careers of model/actress /singer Jennifer “Jill-of-all-trade–master-of-none” Lopez, ex-rocker Steven “I-am-a-solo-artist-again” Tyler and Randy “Can I finally get some spotlight on me” Jackson

Listen to them sing their version of “We three kings of Orient are” as they plug the show – but rejoice at the end at coming up trumps themselves.

“We three kings of Fox-Entt Orient are, Bearing tips gifts we traverse afar.

Field and fountain, moor and mountain, Following yonder star.

O star of wonder, star of night, Star with royal voice so beauty bright,

Finale-ward Westward leading, still proceeding, Guide us to thy perfect Light.

Born a king on LA’s Bethlehem’s plain, Votes Gold I bring to crown Him again,

King forever, ceasing never, Over us all to reign.

Fake insights Frankincense to offer have I. Nonsense Incense owns a Deity nigh.

Prayer and praising all men raising, Worship Him, God on high.

Now feel the tempo and intent change…

Viewer Myrrh is mine: Its bitter perfume, Breaths a life into our career abloom of gathering gloom.

Sorrowing, sighing, bleeding dying, Un-Sealed from in the stone-cold tomb.

Glorious now behold Us Him arise, Two Kings and a God-dess and to Idolize Sacrifice.

Alleluia, Alleluia, Sounds through the earth and skies.”

  2. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any suggestions for newbie blog writers? I’d genuinely appreciate it.
