Sugar Bits — American Idol Returns Tonight!

  • Paula, Randy, and Simon are back for the premiere of the seventh season of American Idol tonight. Will you tune in to see the first round of hopefuls audition? — BuzzSugar
  • Jessica Simpson has already been blamed for distracting boyfriend Tony Romo, but now people are pointing the finger at her father Joe. Some believe he cut a deal with the paparazzi for photos that revealed Romo took a Cabo vacation before the big game. While we wouldn't put it past him, those were hardly posed photos. — Gatecrasher
  • Dennis and Kimberly Quaid have spoken out for the first time since their newborn twins were accidentally given an overdose of blood thinner in the hospital. The parents are angry they weren't notified of the crisis sooner. Thankfully, the twins are at home and doing well. — LA Times
  • All of the High School Musical actors have officially signed on for High School Musical 3, which will go to the big screen rather than just be a TV movie. This will be the final installment of the series, but these young stars seem to be having no trouble making names for themselves (for better or for worse) outside of Disney. — BuzzSugar
  • Victoria's Secret model Alessandra Ambrosio is expecting her first child with boyfriend Jamie Mazur. Congrats to this supermodel becoming a super mom. —Page Six

roxy17, you took the words right out of my mouth. I wouldn't put it past Jessica's father to have tipped off the paparazzi - the dude is beyond skeevy. But I've got to say Tony and to a certain extent Jessica do deserve some criticism. I'm not saying that the trip is what lost the game for them or distracted Romo or whatever, but both of them had to have known what kind of media firestorm would result from this and follow him and his team around all week, meaning the endless questions to him and his teammates and media coverage everywhere. I also agree with those who said it was the entire team that lost, but as the QB Tony is going to receive more of the blame, sort of like how he receives an inordinate amount of the praise when they win. However, I do think a little more blame can be put on Tony's shoulders - he started making stupid decisions, stupid throws, yelling at refs and teammates (honestly he look liked more of a little brat than Phil Rivers did during the Chargers game when he was jawing with fans but for some reason the media won't make a big deal of Romo's antics). One of the few people on the Cowboys team who probably deserves a pass from any criticism or blame from losing is TO - the dude came back after 3 weeks from an ankle sprain and torn ligament and still tried to play and didn't use the injury as an excuse.

Oh lord, the Cowboys lost because the Giants were the better team last Sunday. Just like the Chargers were the better team. That is not rocket science. However, reading anthing about Papa Joe jus tmakes me feel dirty.

I think it should end- I mean they have only made 2 winners stars and they were the only really talented ones- Kelly and Carrie, btw

thank you christina...i love that nobody blames the cowboys loss or romo's less than stellar performance on the fact that he's not that good yet. anybody else remember when he got sacked like 6 times in one game earlier in the season???

I like how often they do AI. No more than one a year, I think that's good. There's always six months in between seasons.

American idol is getting broing. As soon as one finishes it is on again. they should do it every two years. As for Papa Joe it makes no set that he would have played a part in the release of the photos at a time when the media were already complaining that she was distracting Romo and a curse to him. He might be thoughtless but he is not that stupid.

Has AI really had a pop singer win since Kelly, though? I think AI started out as going for pop, but had to update as they went because the audience insisted on picking the favorite person rather than the favorite pop star.Maybe this latest season produced a pop star, but I wouldn't call any of the winners in between (or even a lot of the top 2) pop.

Christina23559 - No, I agree. Melinda wasn't "idol" material but she was still my favorite. It just sucks when you root for someone through the whole show and then they get booted. :(As for the Cowboys loss - no Jessica was not the cause of it but it's so fun making fun of her! I have no qualms about that. Your new avie is nice, if I do say so myself! ;)

Oh and I didn't feel like Melinda had any kind of actual POP appeal, which is really what AI is supposed to be. A musician that can be a popular musician. Carrie Underwood, Chris Daughtry, Kelly Clarkson, etc. Melinda seemed to be more of a religious musician, like Rueben, Fantasia, etc. No offense intended if that's your genre of music, but it's not going to sell a TON of records.

Ok that was supremely irritating! I was in the middle of a rant, and our fuse box blew! ARG! Ok where was I... I love American Idol, we have it set to record on 2 DVR's. My hubby likes to watch the losers that somehow get thru the producers so they can get skewerd by the judges.I really doubt that Jessica is to blame for Romo's screw up. He just isn't yet the caliber of QB that can handle the pressure of a playoff game. It was a team effort to lose that game, it wasn't JUST the QB's fault even though he is supposed to LEAD his team, but I think that they all should be ashamed.

Yes, I will be watching AI tonight. After the first rounds when all the crazies are done auditioning, who knows? If there's someone I can root for, maybe. My favorite (Melinda) last year didn't win. :(Good luck with that relationship, Romo. You want Jessica? You get her pops too! :rotfl:
