Katy Perry loved her guest gig so much, she’d ditch music and be a judge full time

Katy Perry was more hot than cold as a guest judge last night, certainly far more entertaining than Avril Lavigne. She was as tough (if not tougher) than Simon and smacked down Kara for singing “I Kissed a Girl” (not particularly well.) Thank you, MTV, for the interview:

“I make ‘em cry all the time,” Perry joked to MTV News. “The ‘American Idol’ experience was awesome. If I was offered that job as a permanent host, I would ditch my career and take on that career.”

Perez Hilton is now lobbying to replace Simon Cowell. Note to Simon Fuller: Please no!

“I’d be a great judge,” he continued. “But I’d also happily be a judge along with Simon Cowell on his U.S. version of ‘X Factor.’ Basically, I’m shamelessly looking for work. I’m available. And I’m cheap!”

Joe Jonas told Ryan Seacrest about his guest stint tonight on Idol in Dallas:

“[I was] a little nervous at the start because I was kind of afraid I was going to hurt people’s feelings,” the 20-year-old Jonas Brother told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Monday morning. “You have to really be honest. At first, you feel bad, because you see these people come through, and they just want it really bad. The first few, I was like, ‘Yeah, yeah, yeah, you’re great.’ Towards like five [people] in, you have to be like, ‘I’m sorry, no. This isn’t for you.’”

And I think we saw Ashley Ferl (Sanjaya’s favorite fan) last night for a millisecond crying yet again (at age 16) but no audition footage.

Ratings last night were a season low 24 million or so. The comparable episode ayear ago drew about 25 million.

Thanks Rodney. I laughed when they showed Ashley. Not because she failed, but because she will always be known as the Sanjaya girl.

Katy Perry: sorry but a bit too catty for me. It almost seemed like an act. However, I did like her Kara smack downs. Kara is looking to the female guest judges to be an extension of herself, glad Katy didn’t fall for it.

Perez, no. I stop watching should that becomes official.

Yes, Rodney, I saw Ashley F, too. I think I heard Ryan say something about “where was she when we needed her,” or something like that.

Her name was Ashley? I’ll always remember her as “Crying Girl.”

If Perez Hilton even becomes a guest judge, I’ll never watch again. Where’s Will.I.Am when you need him?

Cat fight…Kara and Katy. They can kiss and make up after it’s over

And how annoying has Kara’s “Girl Power” shtick been? Gees! Knock it off already!

Sorry as she is she needs to keep her day job. Shes not pretty and had no talent. How can she judge some one? Her middle name must be Jtesla.

You know… I kinda like the idea of Perez Hilton & Will.I.Am as guest judges on the same show! :-)

OMG, I just looked up Katy Perry on Wikipedia and her middle name is JTesla! Amazing!

This thing is acting up again. I have “lost” two posts recently–one just now, and another one last night during the show. ???

Heading home, so everyone have a great evening. Be safe on the roads.

Hopefully, no company will arrive unannounced tonight and I’ll be able to join everyone here.

I think it’s simply amazing that this poor girl who’s not pretty and has no talent has had (as far as I can tell) 3 certified hit records! (I Kissed A Girl, Hot & Cold, Waking Up In Vegas)

Oops! Sorry, had the sarcasm hat on. ;-)

If Simon Fuller ever hired Perez Hilton for anything (including cleaning the AI toilets, which I believe is the only job he’s actually qualified for) it would be a sure-fire sign of the Z.A.!

And how “full-time” is judging on Idol anyway. You work 8-12 days judging the auditions. Then there’s Hollywood week (Seven days max.) And the season is what three months – with two show a week? And you don’t even have to be there the entire week during the season. Simon’s routinely jetting back to England to attend to other business.

Sounds like Katy would have at least six-to-seven months to pursue her musical career.

I’d still love to see Shania Twain as the fourth judge – if the producers absillylutely insist on four judges.

Of course… I’d love to see Shania – period. :-)

Shania was the best so far. Based on both her judging ability and also on how easy she is on the eyes. The best Simon clone so far would be Katy. However, Idol doesn’t need a Simon clone, they will never match the man, so don’t bother.

So are we being taunted by JoesPlace on the last blog? Trying to drum up some ad revenue maybe?

For a woman of ANY age she looks great… but for 44 years old? She’s stunning.

Gee, Katy or Ellen, which one would I rather watch…

Ugh, Perry was terrible, no way she should be considered for a permanent spot (”You have a job and a family? How are you ever going to find time to sing????”). Nice eyes/rack though.

Wasn’t that Avril who said that, as she projected her own relationship issues?

Hope everyone has a good evening. Not really looking forward to tonight’s show. A JoBro? Please! Heck… Simon would probably say no if he auditioned.

Doogie I can handle.

Lets hope the talent actually carries the show tonight.
Let’s hope that
