Idol Gives . . .

Back.

us another stinking lip sync.

me a reason to ponder, "Is that Posh or a robot?"

all of us a chance to watch a family show that includes such words and phrases as Viagra, "nude-y pictures," "saline or silicone," "sex trade," and condoms. Sadly, some of those words are due to a sad and disturbing reality in some parts of the world. Others represent a sad and disturbing plastics reality in Vegas, Utah, and Hollywood.

America yet another live performance by the Black-Eyed Peas, causing me to marvel at the diverse, representative group that it is.

us a sick Alicia Keys, because she didn't sound so great.

the boot to a contestant deserving of it at this point.

the reminder that Annie Lennox is simply phenomenal and has a moving and haunting voice.


us my favorite Elton John song (and quite possibly my favorite love song) performed by Sir Elton John himself.

me pause with some very humbling stories. I have the tendency to stress about finances, but really . . . my family and I are rich. Very, very rich.

. . . the Tin Man a Heart. I almost believe Simon is human. He's just managed to bury that small part of him in the same place that the Grinch stores his heart.

I know! We see ever such little glimmers every once in a blue moon. You know, Simon's talking about having kids. I wonder how he'll change after that!

Jimmy, YES! I used to love the Eurythmimcs, too.
