Ta DA!! We’re in catch up mode. :-)
First - WEEK 5
The “Can’t Carry a Tune in a Bucket” Award: Len and Bruno, for their rendition of either “Maria” or “How Do you Solve a Problem Like Maria”…we can’t be sure. :-)
Heidi: So, the first time I saw it, I thought they were doing a little West Side Story…the second time I saw it, I’m honestly not sure. Don’t quit your day job, boys…if I can’t tell what you’re going for, you can’t sing. :-) If I had to bet, I would call Len Sound of Music and Bruno West Side Story. :-)
Courtney: Screw musicals…I think we’re giving them too much credit there. I think they both were just making it up as they went along and just hoping that that the audience was even less educated than they were and would just assume that they were singing a legitimate song…and the fact that they were both doing it might somehow lend creedence to their made-up tune. Whatever it was…it was dumb.
Brooke Burke Flub O’the Night: “We’ve combined your jokes with the judges scores…”
Heidi: Have you heard the one about the judge who walked into the bar?? He tried to give the barmaid a “10” and….well, I can’t think of a good joke. But does one really need one when Brooke is around? :-) In all fairness, she’s been better this season than previously, but her occasional tongue tripping can be entertaining.
Courtney: My aunt used to have this parrot named Joey that would repeat literally ANY word it heard – but it would do it at random times, and sometimes form sentences that weren’t quite coherent, contextually. I’m beginning to think that Brooke is the reincarnation of Joey, the way she will occasionally swap out the word she intends to use with one she has just heard or thought about :-) If so, I fully expect her to start making the skud missile sound effect and start calling people SOB’s by season’s end…can’t wait ;-)
The Award for Best Reaction to being Called Safe: Melissa Gilbert – Half-Pint CUSSED!!!! :-)
Heidi: Hehehehe…loved it. Sweet, quiet Melissa gets bleeped on live television. You go girl. You really CAN take the Prairie out of the girl. ;-)
Courtney: And it was a LOOOONG cuss – like a full 5 seconds of the sound being completely bleeped out. I can only imagine what is was she said…whatever it was, I’m sure I’d be proud ;-) Read more..
