The survivors of last week's 'Idol' plague sing for their lives
Last Thursday's "American Idol" was a bit like "Torchwood: Miracle Day."
The plot of the series was "What happens in one day, people just stop dying?" Death is, after all, the inevitable destination in all human lives, so what happens if the entire species is detoured from our logical destination? How do we live if we aren't going to die?
"Death" usually isn't the destination on "American Idol," at least not the episode-by-episode destination. Instead, the destination is towards singing. But last Thursday's "American Idol" was song-free. For perhaps the first time in "Idol" history, an entire hour passed without a single performance, without a single ruling by the judges. It was a full hour of coughing, sneaking and rehearsing.
It was very weird.
Rumor has it, though, that people are actually going to sing on Wednesday's episode.
Let's find out...
Dan and Alan talk Grammys, 'Cougar Town,' 'Lilyhammer' and Linsanity
And as always, feel free to e-mail us questions for the podcast.
Did Symone Black survive? And what drama did Group Day bring?
When we left "American Idol," 16-year-old Symone Black had just performed "Sitting On The Dock of the Bay," bantered briefly with the judges and then toppled off the stage, much to the horror of all involved.
Of course, if you only set your DVR to record "American Idol" and didn't set it to record "Mobbed," you missed the swan-dive and you also missed the cliffhanger. Instead, you spent a full hour waiting for a contestant to pass out and you got... nothing.
But don't worry. I suspect that we're going to get a full replay as Thursday (Feb. 9) night's "American Idol" begins...
