You may find it hard to believe, but being a judge is hard. Take for example, last night on American Idol. It was Jason Castro’s turn to be critiqued by the mighty Paula Abdul. Paula told Jason that she loved his first song because he displayed his lower register, but his second song left her a little empty. The problem there was Jason Castro only sang one song. Randy had to remind her. Paula, flabbergasted, confused, possibly drunk, exclaimed, “Oh my god, I thought you sang twice.” Paula tried to cover up saying her second critique was for David Cook except, right after, she told David he was fantastic. Paula explained to ET:
“I was trying to give my critique for Jason Castro, and scribbled Jason’s name, and that was DAVID [COOK]‘s! … We all just screwed up everything. This is live television. This is fun!”
I can see where it can get confusing. Jason Castro has dreads and David Cook doesn’t. This could happen to anyone. Like, one time I couldn’t tell the difference between a chocolate muffin and an English muffin. Just kidding. That never happened because I’m not a dumbass. But apparently Paula is.
