Paula Abdul's blunder on American Idol

My officemates have been talking about this since last week and they’ve watched this video on YouTube. The subject is the recent blunder of Paula Abdul, one of the judges of the number one show on television “American Idol”.

Apparently, they changed the format by making the judges hold their appraisals until every contestant had a turn to perform unlike the usual format in which each performance is judged immediately. The Grammy award-winning pop singer gave her feedback for two songs by one of the contestant, Jason Castro – the problem is he only sung once.

“Oh gosh, we’ve never had to write these things down ... fast enough,” she began, shuffling through her note cards. “Jason, first song, I loved hearing your lower register, which we never really hear, um ... .”

And this is when she lost it.

“The second song, I felt like your usual charm wasn’t — it was missing for me. It kind of left me a little empty.”

Certainly, it should be empty.
