The Idol Radio Show podcast for May 16, 2013
Hosted by the Token White Guy and Sir Darryl
A new American Idol winner has been crowned, and Alan, aka the Token White Guy, gets Sir Darryl to admit that the winner is a much better choice than his beloved Burnell Taylor. Alan also reveals how American Idol attempted to discredit him with the winner they crowned tonight. The guys wonder why Mariah Carey needed to lip-sync her performance tonight, and why she didn’t do a better job lip-synching as well. Michael calls in to give his opinion about Mariah’s performance and other items as well.
Darryl asks Alan about Psy’s performance tonight, which elicits a few groans from Alan. Darryl and Alan talk about American Idol shedding the light on the controversy of how all the guys were eliminated so easily, which Darryl attempts to inject race into. Darryl was not impressed with Aretha Franklin’s performance tonight.
Alan needed to take a break tonight, and attempted to play a recent cover performed by Season 11 contestant Eben Franckewitz. Unfortunately, Alan misplaced that file and had to play a recent recording by LMFAO in which they were feeling gassy and bloated (video after the jump).
After the break, the guys talk about six fixes American Idol can make for next season. The guys end the night by giving their predictions for the coronation songs for both Candice and Kree and whether Candice will have success with her first album.
