Ken Levine: American Idolatry

IDOL_HD_w-i-p.jpg

Ken Levine goes where no straight guy over 26 went before: American Idol. Watching the show in the studio wasn’t a relevatory experience for Levine, earsplitting rather than earth shattering. (Who wants a hot dog after a tour of Hormel?)

He’s got a great one-liner:

Jennifer Lopez giving singing tips is like Eddie Griffith giving driving tips.

Michael Slezak, at EW.com, tosses off a great observation:

What can be said of Haley’s take on Gloria Estefan’s cover of Vickie Sue Robinson’s Turn the Beat Around? That it had as much Latin flavor as one of Newt Gingrich’s appearances on Hannity & Colmes?

Going home tonight: Sanjaya? Phil? Chris?
