"American Idol": Eight Guys' Most Embarrassing Moments

It's the last chance for the eight Idolette guys to try to secure a spot in the "American Idol" Season 7 finals.

Show host Ryan Seacrest walks down the curving staircase from the Balcony of Broken Dreams like a Ziegfeld girl, patting the occasional Guy Idolette lining the stairway.

It's '80s night and because we wore our most embarrassing outfits that decade, Seacrest says, the Idolettes will be required to reveal their Most. Embarrassing. Moment. Ever.

First, Luke Menard: When he was 8, he was forced to dress in a tutu and leotard by his older sister, who wished he was a girl. With that taped intro, he's pretty much got to sing a Wham! song, right? He does: "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go." Imagine George Michael if he'd been part of an a cappella group, or barbershop quartet.

Judge Randy Jackson says Luke kind of got it together at the end, but the air he's sucking through his teeth says, "Bad, dude -- just trying to keep it real." Judge Paula Abdul mentions something about George Michael on tour and dolphin shorts, and concludes Luke has a "great instrument" and that she "loves loves loves" his "interpretation" of the song. Interpretation? Of a Wham! song? Simon calls it "weak and a bit girly" and predicts Luke won't make it to the top 12, which is telling us nothing we didn't already know.

"Idol's" Final Eight Guys. (Michael Becker - Fox)

Seacrest and David Archuleta, this year's "American Idol" winner, are back on the balcony of Broken Dreams. "You said you were thirsty and you have to pee," Seacrest says -- which, I'm willing to bet, is the clip Seacrest's people will submit to the TV academy when they enter him in the running for the very first Primetime Emmy Award for Best Performance by a Reality Series Host this September.

"I didn't want everyone to know that, actually," David A. says. Well then, pookie, you shouldn't have told it to newshound Seacrest.

The most embarrassing moment in David A.'s entire life was when he went somewhere or other to sing at some charity fundraiser where the organizers had made a big effort to fly him down there and he sang some song in Spanish only as he was trying to finish the song, his voice was gone so his mother ran up on stage and finished the song for him and she was great. Okay!

He starts to sing This Week's Earnest David Archuleta Song Choice: Phil Collins's "Another Day in Paradise." This time he mixes it up by playing the piano. At least he starts to. But he seems nervous. He leaves the piano after about five notes.

"It was like watching one of your concerts," Randy says. Paula loves that he missed a couple notes because it proves he's not a hologram, but, she adds, he's still perfect and his wonderful sensibility picks songs that he can really shine on. Paula's really riding the ganja train tonight. Simon says it wasn't as good as last week and David A.'s songs are getting "a little bit gloomy." Simon boldly predicts he will make it to the final night of "Idol" competition -- again, not telling us anything we didn't already know.

David A. says he picked this tune because he thought, "What a great song, because it brings attention to those around the world that have nothing" -- finally crossing into Tiny Tim "God bless them every one!" territory. Seacrest tells him "Idol Gives Back" isn't for another month -- okay, I made that part up.

Danny Noriega says the very most embarrassing moment for him in his entire life was when he went to a movie theater and tripped, which, he said, "was TMTH!" (too much to handle). Funny, we assumed the most embarrassing moment for Noriega in his entire life was earlier in the day when TMZ got ahold of a Christmas video the Web site said Danny posted on MySpace -- no doubt during his angry punker phase (we know this because he's wearing about a pound of eyeshadow and a faux fur vest) -- in which he, or his evil twin, says he hopes Santa Claus rapes our mothers and that we all get coal for Christmas because we're all pieces of [doodoo]."

Then he does a very pouty, "High School Musical"-esque interpretation of "Tainted Love." Randy says he was too shy vocally at first. Paula explains Danny's a brilliant light with a sensitive side and a spicy side, like chicken wings. But she's worried about the purple he's streaked into his hair. "It should come out," she advises. Simon declares it "horrible," adding, "I hated the arrangement, hated the performance, hated the vocals -- didn't like anything about it."

"Of course," Danny snaps. Then he does Simon's trademark Half Moose move. Then he pretends to brush Simon's comments off his shoulder while looking like he's cooking up more dark deeds for Santa. Actually, he says "Whatever" but he means the same thing by it.

David Hernandez's most embarrassing moment in his entire life, he says, was when he had some professional photos taken of him and noticed later that he had snot hanging from his nose in all of them. And here we thought he was going to talk about the unprofessional photos of him taken at the male strip joint where he allegedly gave lap dances, which surfaced earlier in the day all over the Internet, along with a story -- and video report -- from the Associated Press's new Tabloid Bureau. Just goes to show you, doesn't it?

Then, Hernandez sings Meatloaf's "It's All Coming Back to Me Now" which we think may be neo-ironic, but we're not sure.

Randy, too, likes the song choice. Paula says David H. is really getting into his groove. Simon says it wasn't as good as last week, but he's "100 percent secure" to be in the competition next week, "based on that song," which we think is "Idol" producers' code for "if it's good enough for Diablo Cody, it's good enough for 'American Idol.'"

Michael Johns's most embarrassing moment in his entire life was when fans at a rugby match beat him bloody in front of 20,000 people while he was dressed as a kangaroo. Which is strangely compelling. But then he ruins the moment, singing "Don't You Forget About Me" with very karaoke flourishes -- you know, arm flinging, head tossing, etc.

Randy again likes the song choice. Paula says she loves hearing the strength of his low range, the unique way he holds his microphone and his "hopping thing." The Fox Decency Police go on red alert. Simon says Michael has yet to connect with the right song for his "Moment."

The most embarrassing moment ever in rocker David Cook's life was when he was a kid singing at a talent show and forgot the second verse. He starts to sing Lionel Richie's "Hello," which we think is going to be the new Most Embarrassing Moment in his entire life. Only it isn't; it's not even bad.

Randy calls it a slightly emo version of an entirely pop Lionel Richie song. Paula says David C. is going to be a great shining star. Simon declares it a very brave thing to do, says he loved it and thinks Richie would like it, too, which, he explains, he's in a unique position to know, having run into Richie just the other day at the Whole Foods grocery store where he, Simon, was buying carrots, while Richie was buying cereal. Simon has been drinking from Paula's Coke cup.

Jason Castro has a lot to overcome after announcing to the 28 million-ish "Idol" viewers that his most embarrassing moment ever was when he accidentally pulled one of his dreadlocks out of his head while tying his hair back so it wouldn't fall into his plate while on a dinner date. We stifle the gag reflex while he sings "Hallelujah" surprisingly well.

Randy voices approval, Paula calls it "effortless with ease" and says it showed his beautiful vulnerability. Simon deems it "absolutely brilliant."

And finally, Chikezie Eze sings "All the Man/Woman That I Need" but only after telling America that the most embarrassing moment in his life was when he started attending high school and every day he went back to the same bathroom because it was so clean and there was nobody there, but one day he noticed a sign on the door that said Ladies, which, Chikezie says, helped explain why there were no urinals.

Randaula likes it -- the song, that is, not the story. Simon wants to know if Whitney Houston had ever covered the song and when someone says "yes," he says, well then, it didn't work at all.

Seacrest asks Paula to sum up the night.

"Two words: phenom enal."

AI at it's campy best! What a phenomenal night:
Paula beaming in from some alternate universe;
Simon starting off the show looking like he was burping Paula;
Luke Menard being genuinely cute in his video before crashing and burning;
David A. ratcheting up the creepy mom factor (and next week will he sing while holding a puppy with a bandaged paw?);
Danny picking arguably the cheesiest one-hit wonder song of the 80's (no small feat) after the entire country got to see his video promoting the fresh new spin on "I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus";
David H. doing a nice job with his second song choice after his first choice, "Relax" by Frankie Goes to Hollywood, got nixed by the FDP;
and on and on...
Speaking of David H., if this show was taped before he was officially outted, what are the chances that come Thursday he mysteriously disappears, perhaps to attend to an ailing family member or because tragically he got run over by Nigel's Bentley?

I don't think Meatloaf ever did 'It's All Coming Back to Me Now'. If I remember correctly the writer Jim Steinman did not want Meatloaf to record that particular song (although he did write all of Meat's hits).

Just a love note to you, Lisa. I think that the Pulitzer Prize people should definitely start a new prize for American Idol blogs. You'd totally win!

Posted by: Andrea | March 5, 2008 9:56 AM | Report abuse

How hard is it to google or wikipedia something before posting:

"It's All Coming Back To Me Now" is a power ballad, written by Jim Steinman.[1] According to Steinman the song was inspired by Wuthering Heights, and was an attempt to write "the most passionate, romantic song" he could ever create.[2] Meat Loaf has said the song was intended for Bat out of Hell II and given to the singer in 1986, but that they both decided to use "I'd Do Anything for Love (but I Won't Do That)" for Bat II, and save this song for Bat III.[3][4]

The song has had three major releases, all roughly belonging to the soft rock genre. The first version appeared on the concept album Original Sin, recorded by Pandora's Box. It was then recorded by Céline Dion for her album Falling into You, and her version was a commercial hit, reaching No. 2 in the US Billboard Hot 100 and No. 3 in the UK singles chart. Meat Loaf recorded it as a duet with Norwegian singer Marion Raven for Bat III and released it as a single in 2006.

Pookie -- Love your recap, but want to point out two additional things:

1) The fact that the judges got all over Chikezie for his song choice, but failed to remember that "All the Woman I Need" was the song that Chikezie sang in his original audition that earned him his ticket to Hollywood; and

2) If you check out David Hernandez's performance on YouTube, you can hear that just after he finishes singing (while the audience is applauding) Simon leans over to Paula & Randy and makes a crack (which is picked up on her mike) about how "he must have stripped to that song"! I kid you not--It is clear as a bell and I can't wait for the media to jump all over it.

DC: I believe that the record's pretty clear that the guys and gals "road to the Final 12" nights are all taped, with the results show each weekly being the only live show. But I've been known to be wrong...

Posted by: Re Wolf | March 5, 2008 10:37 AM | Report abuse

Yeah, I think Wolf's right about taped vs. live - Lisa?

And Holy 6 Degrees of Kevin Bacon, but did anyone vet MJ's "Don't You Forget About Me" pick with our Aussie friend? He seemed so proud to point out that it was from the Breakfast Club, which starred Emilio Estevez, who was married to Paula in the 90's. Maybe (probably) it's nothing - maybe (probably) she doesn't remember those hazy days or doesn't care - but still it seems like the kind of risk you probably don't want to take...

Ok, I can't believe you didn't comment on this Lisa--but Jason Castro is clearly, clearly stoned all the time, and certainly was during his performance. Glassy eyes, staring at far away places, almost falling asleep while singing, general goofiness and vague comments.

I know a lot of 80s music is hopelessly stuck in its campy, over-the-top era, but last night didn't sound like the 80s I remember! Where was a Duran Duran or Police song? And does Bono make his songs available, or does he kindly guard them so we don't have to suffer through terrible renditions of them?

Posted by: backintheday | March 5, 2008 11:42 AM | Report abuse

Since AI never tells us the number of votes any of these people receive, David H. can "conveniently" be one of the 2 lowest vote-getters (if Fox truly wants to get rid of him).

Posted by: PB | March 5, 2008 11:55 AM | Report abuse

that is a good point backintheday. i don't know how AI works, but during hollywood week, one of the contestants said that they were all given a book of songs they could sing. i imagine that this happens each week when they are given the theme for the week.

Has anyone taken their eyes of Paula long enough to study Simon's posture while he is delivering his criticism? He does some stange things with his hands periodically. Last week for one particularly harsh critique, he had his right thumb on the side of his head with his four fingers together and pointing up, and it seemed he was actually waving bye bye to the idolette. Was it a subconscious gesture? a subliminal message to the viewers? a signal to the producers? Can we get the FOX News Body Language Person in on this? Also, are the voting results ever published? It would be interesting to learn how the 30 million votes are distrubuted between the candidate places. Can you gain access to the data and publish them for us? Please?

Paula was so 'cracked out last night. I love the part when Simon pulled her down into her chair to stop dancing ... or convulsing, whatever it was she was doing.

Posted by: this is your brain on drugs ... | March 5, 2008 12:08 PM | Report abuse

From what I have heard, the semi-finalists are given a list of songs from the week's genre. This allows AI to pre-clear the songs for royalties issues. It is harder to clear 16-24 songs for royalties in a few days and this makes things flow easier.

Starting in the final 12, the songs are not limited (except by the genre) and the AI machine clears the songs as chosen by the top-12.

And I think that this week was live. After all, if it was not live, they could have edited out the little goof about announcing David C before the break, him having guitar issues, and Michael J singing after the break with David C singing after the next commercial break. That smacks of live TV and not pre-recorded. I think on one of the "Idol Insider" type blogs out there they mentioned that starting this week, the performances were going to be live as well as the results show.

David Cook can rework sappy pop songs anytime, if he can make them rock as much as last night. He was far and away the best of the night, for me. Helloooooo, David Cook!

I've always hated "Hello," mostly because of that awful video with the blind girl sculpting a replica of Lionel Ritchie's head. But David's version was actually kinda cool--- I hope he stcks around for a while. And Randy "I AM THE 80'S" Jackson ID'ing "Don't You" as an INXS song? Pathetic!

Style and flamboyance. He's a singer of the likes of Britney Spears. Some of us don't like his "style" and his singing sure doesn't hold up. In fact, from my perspective, I think even Luke sings better than Danny. Personally, I think that without the VFTW support, he'd have been gone last week. He clearly thought he was going based on the deer in the headlights look when he was up against Jason Y for elimination.

Lisa, I love your column--it makes me crack up every time! And I like that mixed in with your humor, you usually have some pretty thoughtful analyses of the performances. You were kind of rushed this time, though--no thoughts on the really unusually excellent performance by David Cook today?

And I'm sad to hear you didn't love Danny for his snippy comments back at Simon. He's like Sanjaya except with better hair, a better voice, and loads more personality. I normally don't like people being rude to the judges, but Danny's so adorably flaming that he gets the "diva's privilege" in my book. ^^ I know so many people must hate him, but he sure makes the show entertaining! (and dang, but he can move those hips! :D)

David Archuleta is, of course, the most adorable thing in the world and I don't begrudge him his "gloomy" song choices at all. I like that he's a thoughtful person and I get the sense he wants to do more with his publicity on the show and his stardom than just live the good life. He seems to be shaping up to be Bono the Second, which could never be a bad thing, and I really love that he's so determined when he's only 17! Great kid, and that kind heart of his is genuine, IMO. I really hope America won't pull another Melinda Doolittle and abandon the rightful winner of this season...

Agree on "dreadlocks guy." I wasn't particularly bowled over by that performance last night. Simon's opinions often seem rooted in his personal feelings about the songs rather than the singers.

Also, I don't think Randy was saying "Don't You Forget About Me" was by INXS. I think he was just comparing the Aussie Michael Johns to the Aussie Michael Hutchence. He also did it a couple weeks ago when Johns sung a Doors song.

Paula told one contestant last night, "You're all so unique in the competition this year, and you are no exception." In other words, "You're unique, just like everyone else."
