"American Idol" "Bikini Girl" called a joke! Fans are outraged!
The girl can't sing. She has the face of a horse. End of story.........
Winning "American Idol" feels great. But as any contestant will tell you, being on "Idol," especially during the soul-crushing Hollywood Week, does not.
For the most part in the past, "Idol" hopefuls who make it to Hollywood are serious singers who really think they have a shot at winning, with the costume-wearing, prop-toting jokers mostly weeded out during the audition weeks or not given screen time on the big stage in Los Angeles.
But a pair of singers — swimsuit model Katrina "Bikini Girl" Darrell and stand-up comedian Nick "Norman Gentle" Mitchell — who made it through the first round of Hollywood Week on Tuesday night's show called into question whether that maxim is still true and whether prime-time minutes are being squandered on joke acts who have no intention of really winning the competition at the expense of more focused singers.
"As an 'Idol' fan, I was more angry about those two fools hogging more screen time, when contestants I actually cared about were cut," said resident MTV News "Idol" expert Jim Cantiello. "Hollywood Week is supposed to be 'Idol' fans' gift, after a month of shticky auditions. We watch the audition episodes for the comedy. We watch Hollywood Week for the nail-biting, hair-pulling drama. It's disappointing that producers got it wrong this year."
A spokesperson for "Idol" could not be reached for comment at press time.
