Former Idols and current thoughts
- Jordin Sparks has announced on Twitter that she will be appearing in an episode of the FOX hit “Bones.” There are no details at the moment, but Jordin sounds pretty excited about it.
- Tonight, George Clooney will be the host of Help For Haiti, a charitable event that many of the networks will carry. A large number of celebs have volunteered their time to perform or man phones to take donations. A few former Idols are among the volunteers. Jennifer Hudson will perform while David Archuleta and Katharine McPhee will also be volunteering, although I do not know in what capacity.
- Speaking of Kat McPhee, a recent and somewhat snarky article on msn.com has alluded to the fact that Kat is one of the few second placers who seems to be faring better career-wise than the actual winner. For awhile, Clay was outshining Ruben, and Adam keeps the spotlight better than Kris. msn contends that the same is true of Kat. Citing Taylor’s illustrious career as Teen Angel in the roadshow of Grease, msn goes on to mention that Kat’s career has managed to stay ahead of Taylor’s on almost every level.

This will be my last post as Rodney’s substitute. I have to say that, despite the difficulties we encountered with the nighttime posting, it has been a very positive experience for me. It has made the recovery from surgery less boring. It has opened my eyes to the difficulty I have with communicating instructions. It has made me appreciate what Rodney does for us even more than I already did.
Most of all, it has shown me the kindness and open-heartedness of my fellow bloggers. Y’all encouraged me every day. You made me smile. You made me feel proud of myself. Most importantly, you embraced a change that many would have stepped away from (sort of the “if Simon’s gone so am I” school of thinking) and made sure that I knew EVERY DAY that you appreciated my efforts.
Well, I appreciate your efforts and I always will! My sincerest thank you to everyone.
On Monday I return to being just plain ol’ Queen D. I guess I’ll have to live with that.
