Kid Rock calls judge gig ’stupidest thing’ Steven Tyler has ever done

kidrockKid Rock, the arbiter of all things cool, said Steven Tyler joining the “Idol” panel was “the stupidest thing he’s ever done in his life,” he told Entertainment Weekly.

“He’s a sacred American institution of rock ‘n’ roll, and he just threw it all out the window. Just stomped on it, and set it on fire..I think whoever’s advising him, we should bring back the guillotine, or whatever they call that thing. And if it was himself, he needs some serious counseling. I love him to death, but I gotta speak the truth.”

Tell us how you really feel, Kid Rock!

- Daily Carrie Underwood “Mama’s Song” update on Mediabase 24/7: It’s up to 5,072 spins from October 23-29, up 203 spins from Oct. 16-22. That keeps it at No. 14, 429 spins behind Jason Aldean’s “My Kinda Party.” Josh Turner’s “All Over Me” is falling quickly and may be moved to recurrent soon so she should be moving to No. 13 in a few days. There are 17 songs moving up the chart faster than Carrie’s song at the moment.

-Paula Abdul’s “Live to Dance” is set to debut January 4 around the same time as “Idol” but is only set for eight weeks. The winner gets $500,000.

The new CBS reality-competition series LIVE TO DANCE, which will feature one of the most inclusive talent searches ever on television, will debut with a special two hour episode, Tuesday, Jan. 4 (8:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network. Paula Abdul will serve as executive producer, mentor and lead expert of the series. LIVE TO DANCE will move to its regular time period on Wednesdays (8:00-9:00 PM, ET/PT) on Jan. 5, and then be broadcast LIVE starting Wednesday, Jan. 12.

The premiere episode of LIVE TO DANCE will follow dancers from across the country auditioning for Abdul and the series’ experts in specially constructed Dance Domes that were built in both New York and Los Angeles to host the auditions. At the end of the premiere episode, a group of dancers from all styles, backgrounds and ages will be selected for the LIVE TO DANCE cast.

When the show moves to its regular time period on Wednesday, Jan. 5, an additional group of dancers from the Dance Dome auditions, who the experts feel deserve a second look, will have one final opportunity to compete in a “dance-off,” to earn a coveted spot in the LIVE TO DANCE cast. Those contestants who make it through the “dance-off” will travel to Los Angeles, rounding out the final cast of 18 dance acts.

Starting Wednesday, Jan. 12, the first six dance acts will compete against each other LIVE on CBS with two acts advancing. After a total of three rounds, the six dance acts that have advanced will compete against one another in the grand finale, where they will battle for the right to be crowned LIVE TO DANCE champion and awarded a $500,000 prize.

Paula Abdul will be joined on the panel of experts by Travis Payne and Kimberly Wyatt, both of whom bring an extensive dance and choreography resume to the series. Andrew Günsberg is host of the series.

“he just threw it all out the window.”

No, what he does now does not in any way diminish what he did in the past. Just like the stupid things Kid Rock says in no way tarnishes the one or two hits that he has had. I guess he decided to go by “Kid Rock” becuase “Kid Douche” just didn’t sound as cool.

Neg’s idea for the next reality show:

JUDGING IDOL

Storyline:
On this show, singers will perform before panels of aspiring judges, who will themselves be competing for votes from America. These judges will then be judged on their judging performances by Idol producers, who are looking for the “Next Great American Idol Judging Panel”.

Rules:
Casting will be done with the same format as American Idol, with cattle calls of thousands that get narrowed down until they reach a number that are ready to face the Producers Panel to see if they have what it takes to make it to Hollywood Week.

Hollywood Week will weed out the Top 30 judges, who will then advance to the live shows as finalists. Once in the finals, America will vote on their live performances, and each week the judge with the fewest number of votes will be eliminated from the competition until America has selected the three judges who will form the Winning Panel.

Winners Prize:
The Winners of Judging Idol will each receive a $1 million dollar contract to be the official judges for the upcoming season of American Idol.

Anyway, THAT would be a show that Neg would watch.

Can’t quite agree with Kid (Tyler was hooked on heroin and coke in the past and that qualifies as MUCH more stupid), but I do understand where he’s coming from.

Someone in Steven’s inner circle should have pointed out the possibility of him becoming the newest ‘celebrity’ to crash and burn monumentally in front of a national audience. But perhaps at this point in his life/career, the money was just too great to pass up.

Cute Negs!!!

i cannot get serious about ANYthing Kid Rock says…. i guess his comment would be the proof of “it takes one to know one” because Kid has done some awfully S-T-U-P-I-D things over the years!!!

sheesh

“Kid Rock, the arbiter of all things cool”? Really? How much did he pay you to write those words, Rodney? LOL for sure! ;-)

I know I’m late to (in fact I missed) the party, but kudos to kelly&carriefan for her review. An enjoyable and informative read, definitely. I’m still jealous you were there and I wasn’t!!!!! :-)

In other news, “Randy Travis Ditches Wife”…I forgot who he is and clicked on story. Of course, seeing him and the Mrs. “in happier days”, I remembered how constipated they both looked when Adam sang “Ring of Fire”.

Mercedes, did the story talk about the fact that Randy was a juvenile delinquent and the future Mrs. Randy was much older and married? She and her then husband owned a restaurant/bar and they mentored him; then, he ran away with her (or vice versa). Guess that chapter in country chronicles is o-ver!

Ok, just read the very Bowdlerized version of the Travises’ past. Boy, he sure has got a long face in that pic!
Reminds me of a joke:
Horse walks into a bar. Bartender says, ‘Why the long face?’

Hi y’all,

Happy Monday Morning. Here’s hoping for good updates on Porter and Rickster’s b-i-l.

And y’all, thanks for the kind words. I’m glad y’all enjoyed my take on Carrie’s concert. :)

Well, trick or treating door to door is moribund if not dead. I had a total of two doorbell rings — five little ones in all. Gave them all the Halloween silly bandz in the bowl, which excited them a lot more than the candy!

Good morning, everyone. I always have thirty or forty kids, but this year only about fifteen showed up. I think it was because it was on Sunday, and lots of events over Saturday kind of took away from the actual day. We have a good time with the kids that come to our door.

As for Randy Travis, the story is, when he was 17 years old, he worked in a Charlotte nightclub as a sort of janitor. Lib Hatcher, who owned the club, discovered he had a good singing voice and let him sit in with the house band from time to time. Then, he got into trouble with the law, and she intervened, telling the judge she and her husband would allow Randy Travis to live in their home and would mentor him. We all know that she divorced her husband, and the word was Travis resisted marrying her for some time, but felt obligated to her, once she had made business decisions for him that made him famous. He was beholden to her, and she ruled him with an iron hand for years, it was said. I knew some musicians from Charlotte at the time, who knew her and him. She was way older, too. A cougar, as we’d say today. ;)
