American Idol is finally hitting its stride this week, with six contestants left and the disco challenge lurking in the near future. I hardly recognized the ocular-impaired pianist, Matt Giraud, this week with his fancy haircut and less than spectacular performance. It took the power of the judges using their ‘save’ to pull him through to the next round. Another Simon moment this week that is blowing away the world on Youtube is the 47-year old “Never Been Kissed” woman, Susan Boyle, on “Britain’s Got Talent”. The 7-minute video will bring Mr. Blue Bird to your shoulder and a restraining order from your shower curtain. But I digress.
