Contestant Updates

  • Remember Jaered, the contestant tossed off the second season of AMERICAN IDOL for failing to disclose abuse charges he had to answer for back home? He was acquitted this week. Whoops.

  • Does the voice singing the song in the back half of the Pride and Prejudice trailer sound familiar? Does that face you see for a split second before the credits pop up look familiar? It’s Carmen Rasmusen, the single most savaged contestant in the history of Simon Cowell’s rein. It’s a catchy little ditty, albeit horribly computer-enhanced.

  • Kelly Clarkson is the favorite to win the holiday stunt World Idol special on Christmas Day and New Year’s.

    I don’t know whether to be grateful or upset that you provided that Pride & Prejudice link. It’s one of my absolute favorite books, and well, the movie looks….horrid. :) While I’m glad it’s getting attention for the great story it is, does it HAVE to be made into a strange modern romantic comedy??

    For that matter, how did you find this trailer??? :)

    He probably checks regularly. I saw it a couple of days ago and almost hurled, I’d had enough with Bridget Jones’ Diary (another adaptation of P&P). Speaking of that, I’ve heard a sequel is currently filming … sigh.

    Paul is right. Apple’s movie trailer website is a must visit on the weekends, to see what’s being teased in front of the week’s new films. Always interesting.
