Diddy, Justin Bieber to be on results show Wednesday; Paula Abdul going to Broadway?

diddy1

Usher was already previously announced to be on Wednesday’s results show to sing “OMG.” Now Diddy is joining Dirty Money to sing “Hello, Good Morning.”

MTV also confirmed that Atlanta’s Justin Bieber will get a few minutes, too. I presume he’d sing his latest single “Baby.” Usher helped sign and develop Bieber. UPDATE: The MTV dude James Cantiello who Tweeted sent me this email note:

Saw on your site that you’re using my Tweet as confirmation for the Bieber appearance Wednesday. I was just cracking a joke based on a Tweet I saw from MJsBigBlog. No official confirmation. (Although I’m 99% sure it’s happening.)

Yes, all this hip hop and youthful pop is another attempt to bring in the younger viewers, who are fleeing the show much faster than older folks.

-Nigel Lythgoe is also Tweeting changes to “So You Think You Can Dance.” Among the changes, no more top 20, a different partner each week and only one person out each week. That tells me there will likely be a top 12, not a top 20.

- Paula Abdul has committed to… something! Radaronline said she’s going on Broadway. She will be performing in the musical “In the Heights.”
UPDATE: Playbill.com, a more credible source, said Radaronline’s report is 100% false.

Diddy…Usher… Justin who?

Yawn.

Hey, lets get Kanye West on there too!

Wake me up for the results show.

Diddy does know how to dress. The man has style.

However, can we get beyond the Justin Bieber thing? I mean she’s a really cute girl and all, but I just don’t get all the obsession.

LOL, this is really funny stuff, guys. :) . Actually, I don’t mind hearing Justin so much as I mind watching him. He does look like a little teen girl–not much that is too masculine about him yet. He is a late-bloomer, physically, imo.

Late bloomer Harriett? I’m sure when she hits puberty the confusion will end. Estrogen has a way of doing that.

Hey blogsters. Sorry I’m a little late getting on today. Between yard sale, insurance evaluation for mom, dress fitting for the wedding…..the blog got neglected. Same stuff tomorrow but it’s Saturday so no one will notice.

Wait a minute….did anyone notice today????? ;-)

Yes, Diddy is a great dresser!

Yes Justin is androgynous.

Diddy, Usher and Justin Bieber…….that’s a really strange combination. Funny, I’ve never thought of him as R & B.

But did anyone notice that Rodney did not post a picture of Diddy wearing a hat. I think Rodney knows that the only person on the planet that could wear a hat better than he can is… the Diddy.

Wait, Rodney, Paula “…will be performing in the musical “In the Heights?’” but doesn’t that require a live performance? Has Paula ever done a truely live performance that involved singing? Maybe she’ll just be dancing, that I can understand.

Justin Bieber has lived in Atlanta for the past three years, though he’s originally from Canada. His manager Scooter Braun is here. I saw some FB messages from the likes of Lee and Katie saying they are about to meet Usher for the first time today.

Highlander-I got rid of the spam dude and blocked him.
Also–just saw that Paula is NOT going to Broadway after all. False rumor spread by radaronline.com, according to playbill.com.

The spam dude is obviously trafficking in knock-offs, which is billion dollar industry catering to people who think it’s cute to pay 30 bucks for a fake “LV” bag and choose to “forget” that the scam is hooked up to drug cartels, child prostitution and worse.

Thanks, Rodney, for blocking the creep.

We all need to do our best to wipe out spam. (Except for the delicious meaty kind, of course! …Oh, wait. …Sorry, I seem a bit delusional due to the antibiotics for a sinus infection!)

Ohh, and Paula actually isn’t going to Broadway?! This is my shocked face! :shock:

Weekend greetings, blogsters. Been absent a few days but in catching up it seems I did’t miss too awful much. Spam, arguments about Crystal, rants about spam, mentors and performers I don’t know or care much about–LOL!

Anyhoo- hope to get back in the game somewhat next week. Looking for AI to pick it up as well. As the “commentators” like to say, I wanna be “wowed” this week.

Belated welcome back to Nana, also! That is all.

Hello all. Just wanted to say today is my birthday and I’m having a great time enjoying the (surprisingly) wonderful weather hanging out with my 8month old daughter and her lovely mother. We have got some crab legs boiling, I took off from work tomorrow, man it just doesn’t get much better than this. I hope everyone is doing as great as I am out there.

Morning, everyone.

Happy (belated) Birthday, RxDawg! Hope it was great and you certainly did have great weather for it!

Today’s Quote; “Hope is both the earliest and the most indispensable virtue in the state of being alive. If life is to be sustained hope must remain, even where confidence is wounded.”

Hope you had a very nice birthday RXDawg and many more yet to come your way.

Deirdre, I noticed that you were not present. We always miss the regulars when they are away. Glad to see you’re back.

Good morning everyone! Highlander, I want that emoticon, too! D, I hope the wedding plans are still going off smoothly. Missed you here, just like Nana did.

And, add my belated happy birthday wishes, Rx!

Does anyone here watch Flashforward? Has it already returned? I was a halfway fan last year, but if I have already missed too much, I may not try to watch it anymore. Definitely looking forward to Glee. Rodney, what was that you were saying about the timing of Glee vs Idol?

Happy Monday! Adding my belated birthday wishes, Rx!

Harriett, I watch Flashforward. I was sort of “meh” on it last fall, but went and got the half season DVDs, and got hooked. It came back on the 18th with a 2-hour “premiere” and then an episode last week. The premiere was pretty fun. It’s a poor man’s Lost, but at least with this one you get answers! :)

And yes, I too want that cool emoticon. (Testing: :O 8O )

Sign that your days as a celebrity are nearing an end (or your career needs a HUGE jump-start)

You walk the “red carpet” at Perez Hilton’s birthday bash.

Lindsey Lohan?: Check
Paula Abdul?: Check
Taylor Dayne?

The way I have it is : (colon) followed by the word ’shock’ followed by another : (colon). No spaces between the colons and the word. So it’s : shock :, without the spaces.
