CD on the NBA Basketball finals Update…….Boston up 3-2…..

Yup, this matchup was important even when Al Jefferson was a Celtic. (AP Photo/Branimir Kvartuc, File)

NBA Finals 2010 update: Boston leads 3-2 with their amazing Game 5 win at the TD Garden in Boston, MA over the defending champion LA Lakers, 92-86 in a wild game as Kobe Bryant’s 38 points wasn’t enough to pull out the win.

For those with no TV…..American Idol…..Lee DeWyse Wins!

Lee DeWyze, the host Ryan Seacrest and Crystal Bowersox.

Kudo’s to CD..Who nailed it!

The show was great!……

9:52 P.M. Back to Crystal and Lee
9:52 P.M. Back to Crystal and Lee

LT: Oh yeah. Ryan Seacrest just reminded us that tonight is about Crystal and Lee.
DI: Who are they again? Were they also on “Good Times” with Janet?
LT: The TV says that “together they took a journey to become something extraordinary” So i guess that rules out “Good Times.”
DI: Mr. Joe Cocker
LT: I was just about to type, Too bad there is no way Joe Cocker is going to show up.
DI: Did you also hear Crystal emphasize the “living” part of “living legend”? Remember when they asked, What would you do if I sang out of tune? Now we’re getting the answer.
LT: Stand up and applaud?

9:49 P.M. Nasty Boys!

DI:Get nasty with… Rorschach from Watchmen?

9:47 P.M. Updates From Twitter

@ChrisSligh: Lasers!!!!!! And pitchy singing!!!! It’s like being at a Milli Vanilli concert in 1989!!!!
@brucefretts: It’s Janet Jacula!
@Kateaurthur:This Janet Jackson performance is actually understated and lovely. What’s going on?????
@DanielFienberg: Whew. I was afraid that Miss Janet if Your Nasty had been replaced by that Boring Janet.

9:45 P.M. Janet Jackson Performs

DI: Janet Jackson: attire by Jean Paul Gaultier, hair by Kid n’ Play.
LT: There’s kind of a Morticia Addams thing going on with her dress, no?

9:43 P.M. Brian Stelter via Twitter

Perhaps the most important words of the night. Paula Abdul: “Idol” won’t be the same without Simon, but “it will go on.”
After song, Simon affirmed that “Idol” would continue. Cynical journos in auditorium (not I!) whispered, “X Factor, X Factor.” One even wondered whether Simon would plug his Fall 2011 reality show. Of course not; he has 16 more months to do that.

More……..

CD …….American Idol Winner pick…….

………..tell James B that his fav Crystal Bowersox will NOT win the Idol crown this week because of several factors:
1. The Blue Staters (Lee is the only Blue stater left) are likely due for a victory for 8 years of Red State dominance just to piss Corey off.

2. Crystal’s horrible appearance: her UGLY-ASS teeth, and the dreds are making folks back away from her in droves.

3. Lee will benefit from getting Casey James’s supporters.

4. Red State Fatigue.

5. A Lee DeWyze victory is going to make President Obama happy.

CD on the 24 Finale…….

9_tv_show_24

1. Jack will NOT get justice for his slain girlfriend, Renee because CTU and the police are likely going to haul him to jail.

2. President Taylor will be exposed for her part in covering up the conspiracy on the Russians’ involvement in Hassan’s assassination and Renee’s death.

3. Logan will get away with murder once again.

4. Dalia Hassan will find out who was involved in her husband’s assassination and I’m telling ya, it will get UGLY.

5. The Russian President will get killed.

CD 'American Idol' Update……. Casey James will go back to Texas tonight …..

Casey James will go back to Texas tonight on American Idol because he stunk up the joint last night in the Top 3 showdown,where the contestants only had to sing 2 songs.

As for next week’s likely Final 2 showdown between Lee DeWyze of IL and frontrunner Crystal Bowersox of OH,……

I still do NOT see Crystal winning this thing for several factors:
1. Anti-female sentiment
2. Red State Fatigue (all 8 Idol winners have been from Red States and it might be time for a Blue Stater like Lee for a shot)
3. Casey’s supporters are very unlikely to back Crystal due to her lack of connecting to the American voters and picking safe song after safe song.
4. Lee has momentum.
