all the (obvious) news that's fit to print

the new york times breaks news takes this little sploog of acid reflux, prints it, and pretends it's news about american idol:
On Wednesday, in an e-mail message, (Manfred) Westphal (a spokesman for FremantleMedia North America, which produces “American Idol”) said: “Due to extensive choreography and to balance their voices with open mikes against a screaming audience, the Idols do sing along to their own prerecorded vocal track during the group performances only.”
there's arts news for you. these guys are on it.
UPDATE 3/26/09 – re-reading that quote from westphal, it sounds like "the idols" (do we really have to call them that? ick) get together like pre-schoolers and "do sing-along," like it's a game. "c'mon idols, put away your binkies and clean up your area because it's time to do sing-along!"

  1. Wha-- you mean Idol is NOT about who the best singer is?!?

    Seriously, does Ashley Simpson need any more vindication, or can we just let her go on SNL again and flip everybody off while she lip synchs to "Anarchy in the UK"?
