I believe it is the first time someone has made the Beatles’ ‘She Loves You‘ sound very much like a Chinese Communist Party propaganda song. The entire repertoire of his or her recital now reads:

1. She Loves You – Beatles
2. Star Wars
Main ThemeJohn Williams

Idol LThat out of the way, the guilt of watching the first two episodes of American Idol was ameliorated somewhat by a couple of really really good auditions – the best being the brother and sister pair from Seattle, Shyamali and Sanjaya Malakar. They’ve got my vote!

  1. huh? Congratulations Jordin Sparks. What an Idol, what a name for an Idol. Looking back to the beginning of the season, and as much as I’d rather forget, I’m recalling and admitting to saying that I thought Sanjaya Malakar was a hit, and that he ‘got my vote’. Next time, must be very careful what I write. Technorati Tags: American Idol, animals, pets, sea-monkey, singapore (c) 2003-2006 Benjamin Lee / Mr Miyagi. Email: More of Mr Miyagi:

    American Idol producers go all out to source for the freakiest weirdos (Seattle, you win so far) and make them all sing one particular song eg. Don’cha or Kiss, even though it’s already so obvious they are horrendous, and then makes a montage footage – it’s what makes must-see TV.
