American Idol judge Paula Abdul is the brunt of many jokes as she has made a major booboo on the show by giving feedback to Jason Castro for two songs that he sang, thing is he only sang once.
The show switched up last night when it came to judging with the judges giving ffeedback to participants after all of them had performed in each round and this required them to take quick notes after each performance.
The Idol wanna-be contestants were singing songs from Neil Diamond
“Oh gosh, we’ve never had to write these things down … fast enough,” she began, shuffling through her notecards. “Jason, first song, I loved hearing your lower register, which we never really hear, um … .”
“The second song, I felt like your usual charm wasn’t — it was missing for me. It kind of left me a little empty.”
How can something that does not even exist be “empty?” Seriously was Paula a little tipsy or what?
“The two songs,” she continued, “made me feel like you’re not fighting hard enough to get into the top four.”
After a nervous pause, it became clear to Paula that she was caught in a tricky situation, and the embarrassment was plainly obvious: “Oh my god, I thought you — I thought you sang twice!” she said.
Simon was his usual charming self, handing down a lot of lackluster support and a lot of criticism for the contestants.
