Idol is all about raw natural talent which is why it made sense for Paula to perform her new auto-tuned single last night by blatantly lip-syncing into two microphones at once while shimmying up and down the stage. It’s confounding why they even thought this was a good idea. If they let Simon comment on her performance, he’d probably have just stared at her, made a clever quip and stabbed himself in the eye with a pencil.
