Last night, Patrick, Tyrell, Brian and myself were lucky enough to score tickets to American Idol’s result show. It couldn’t have been better timing since Rihanna and Kelly Clarkson were both performing. By now you probably know who was booted, so I won’t bore with details as you’ve probably seen the show. Instead, I’ll give you some insight on what went on when the cameras weren’t rolling. But for those who haven’t seen it. I’ll post a quick paragraph at the end of the post.

Let’s get a few production details out of the way. First, the venue is a lot smaller in person than on television. That wide lens really does wonders. Over the years, Simon Cowell to present day judges have commented how differently the performances sound in person from the televised version. I can honestly say, that is 100% true. Everyone sounds really good in the venue.

What You Didn’t See On Television

If you watched the show you know Chaka Khan, Anita Baker, Marc Anthony, Pia Toscano and Mary Hart were all in the audience. By the time the cameras were on Chaka Khan was sitting in the row behind the judges with Anita Baker, BUT that’s now how it started. At first Chaka was about nine rows behind Anita, before Baker motioned Khan to join here. How dare the producers put Miss Chaka up in the Idol nose bleeds. Oh wait, that’s where we were. LOL. By the time Mary Hart came, there were no more prime seats, so she had to sit where Chaka was originally sitting. SCANDAL-O.

Listen To Lady Gaga’s New “Judas” Single

In: Music, Patrick

It’s finally here! The new single from Lady Gaga, “Judas” from her upcoming “Born This Way” album has just surface on the internet and I’m loving it. It’s certainly not worthy of “album of the decade” as she has promised, but it’s definitely a great track!

The chorus and the dance break are absolutely my favorite. This song is more representative of the Gaga we couldn’t get enough of, with monster hits like Bad Romance and like. When you listen to it, you’ll know that it’s going to be a smash hit on the dance floor. The intro to the song is so strong and gets you pumped right off the bat. “Jud-ah…jud-da-ah, Jud-ah…jud-da-ah!” I’m so going to download this track on iTunes! I can’t wait for the music video on April 19th either for that matter. Laurieann Gibson has said it will be “magical”. Lady Gaga plays Mary Magdalene in the video, which needless to say, has created an uproar amongst the Vatican and Catholic community.

Not that Jacob Lusk had a great shot of winning this year’s American Idol, but this pretty much puts the nail in the coffin on that dream. TMZ has uncovered a mug shot of the Idol contestant. Apparently, Lusk has had problems with the popo.

Back in 2009, Jacob was caught for riding a Metro train without a ticket. Tsk, tsk. When he failed to appear for his court day, a warrant was issued. It wasn’t until November 2010, when he got pulled over for a traffic violation that it finally caught up to him. The arresting police officer saw the outstanding warrant and took him to the big house. Ironically enough, this was the day after he received his Golden Ticket to Hollywood. LMFA0.

Yesterday, I gave you guys a preview of Glee’s new episode titled Night of Neglect. One of the songs we know that will be appearing in the episode is Gaga’s anthem Born This Way which Ryan Murphy had revealed earlier in the year. Now, an exclusive leak of Gwyneth Paltrow’s solo track from the upcoming episode has been revealed. She’ll be adding her vocal stylings to Adele’s Turning Tables.

I have to admit that I love Gwyneth the most when she does ballads on the show. Her rendition of Landslide was absolutely beautiful and this track is no different. Although the track doesn’t bring the punch like Adele does, I am very impressed with how she sounds in the song. Glee’s new episode airs this Tuesday, April 19th on FOX.

Listen to Gwyneth’s “Turning Tables” here.

If you have been missing Will Ferrell in the movie circuit recently, have no fear. He stars in the upcoming Spanish telenovela, Casa de Mi Padre which translated in English is House of My Father. Here is the premise.

Armando Alvarez (Will Ferrell), has lived and worked on his father’s ranch in Mexico his entire life. As the ranch encounters financial difficulties, Armando’s younger brother Raul (Diego Luna), shows up with his new fiance, Sonia (Genesis Rodriguez). It seems that Raul’s success as an international businessman means the ranch’s troubles are over as he pledges to settle all debts his father has incurred. But when Armando falls for Sonia, and Raul’s business dealings turn out to be less than legit, all hell breaks loose as they find themselves in a war with Mexico’s most feared drug lord, the mighty Onza (Gael Garcia Bernal).

The trailer looks like it has potential to be really great although I can’t decide if it is supposed to be funny, dramatic or action packed. Maybe a little dabble of all three? The concept of Will Ferrell in a Spanish film intrigues me enough to want to go and see it.

TMI With Joan Rivers

In: Patrick, Random Reads, Videos

Last week, Donovan and Alex attended SVEDKA Vodka’s Night Of A Billion Reality Stars here in LA. That night, they debuted three Funny or Die videos showing “The Future Of Reality TV“. We’ve shown you one so far (included in the recap from that night), starring Jeff Probst.

Now, here’s the second one with the legendary Joan Rivers (who we met yesterday) in “TMI With Joan Rivers“. In this glimpse into the future of reality tv and plastic surgery, Joan takes it one step further when she decides to remove her body. Listen to the people from TMI (a parody of TMZ) as they talk about what happened to her when the paparazzi got too out of control. Where’s Melissa when you need her.

Britney’s Till The World Ends has to be one of my favorite songs out there right now. The beat is so infectious and the “oh oh oh’s” in the hook can’t help but get you dancing and singing along. I know that whenever I hear this song, I can’t help but bust a couple moves whether its on the dance floor or in the car. Now, Britney is busting a few moves of her own in the newest version of the TTWE video.

At its original release, choreographer Brian Friedman tweeted that a second, full version of the video would be released with only dance sequences, and none of the apocalyptic moments. The idea behind this concept was to end the rumors that had begun with the Hold It Against Me video where due to editing, many thought Britney had used a dance double for the major dance sequences.

This video shows a lot of Britney’s dance moves alongside her dancers throwing down Slave 4 U. Even though Britney isn’t giving it her all like she used to, I really appreciate the release of this video. At least she’s making a solid effort to put the rumors to rest. Which video version do you like the best?

Can You “Queer” Me Now?

In: Totally GAY!, Tyrell

In 2002, Verizon Wireless introduced one of their most recognizable commercial characters of all time with the catchiest catchphrase, can you hear me now? At the time, his name was The Test Guy, but soon, he became more famously known as The Verizon Guy. But to his friends and family, they know him as Paul Marcarelli.

A recent article took a closer look at who the mysterious man behind the black framed glasses. So, I decided to do some research of my own to learn more about this guy and results were quite fun. Who knew that this popular commercial figure was so dimensional.

After snagging the gig in 2002, Paul starred in commercials for the wireless network all the way up until 2010. When he was first introduced, Entertainment Weekly named him one of the most intriguing people of 2002. During the years that Paul starred as the test man, the catchphrase that made him popular also became his downfall. He recalls people driving by and saying “can you hear me now” on the street but also remembers someone whispering it to him at a funeral.

Find out more about Paul after the jump.
