“Dude, You Can Sing the Phone Book!”

by Dr. Rick Goodman on May 21, 2009

If you are like me and millions of people around the world last night you were probably on your couch watching American Idol.  This year’s finale in my opinion was one of the best produced programs on TV.  It was highly entertaining and it gave me the ability to escape from the real world just for a moment.

However I have a major issue with the term; “Dude, You Can Sing the Phone Book!”


Just what does that mean?

I don’t know about you but if I’m out at a bar, restaurant or a concert I don’t care if it’s Billy Joel or Elton John  I don’t think I would be too entertained if they were singing the phone book.

In fact what would it even sound like?

Would it sound like a Steven Wright monologue or would it sound like some of those early contestants who never made it to the final round.  I think it’s time that the BIG DAWG Randy Jackson comes up with another cliché unless he’s ready for someone to actually sing the phone book on the show.

Anyhow my congratulations go out to Kris and Adam Lambert who are both going to be huge stars! They each had opportunities to shine enable took advantage of the situation.  I can’t wait till next season for some new talent and some different clichés!
