She's a juvenile scam, never was a quitter

The most amusing thing I've seen in the past 24 hours:

(Taken from one of those TV shows where a singing celebrity/coach is paired with a celebrity not known for singing).

Oh Anthony. I do hope you're taking notes from this song and all those covers you've been doing at gigs lately for your next (entirely hypothetical) album. Of course, I'm still waiting for your dance-pop opus, so that'd do nicely too.

Then again, do you know who else performed "The Look" on a reality TV show?

Anthony to record "Cara Mia" Mark III, please!

Is she a giantess or is he a pocket gay? It IS very amusing!

Mike said...

Anthony is a dwarf-like troll gay! The highlight was Dannii's appearance as a guest judge. She even flirted with Candice!

Did you ever see LAST year, him doing 'the prayer' with Radio personality Jo Stanley?


It was the moment I decided to stop hating Jo Stanley.

I'm not sure what to make of "The Look," but yes Mike, it was nice to see Dannii flirting with Candice!

Oh, Len, you don't know Anthony? I've been shirking my duty to write about him, then! He's tiny--making it all the more appropriate that he's playing a munchkin in a production of Wicked. Australian Idol (second season) runner-up (and he used to have the record for highest selling or fastest selling or something like that single in Australia for his cover of "The Prayer," but that may have changed by now), in short.

Mike, you even popped in my head while I was writing this--D'luv baiting with Ashlee a few days ago, then Anthony for you ;)

I didn't--until just now, via your link! I don't properly follow everything he does (I think I only watched that "The Look" performance because I heard he'd finally gotten rid of that ridiculous haircut he'd had going). I really wish the video I embedded had ended a few seconds earlier, though :-/

Hurrah for Dannii, though! I'll have to go see if there are clips of her from that.

I knew Anthony only through the Zelmerlow cover of "The Prayer" and the mentions of Callea that came along with it. I wish some enterprising satellite tv provider would get the idea to buy up all that ripe-for-the-picking Australian programming that never gets to be shown here, like Idol and all those lusty Aussie soaps. Either that or the Fox reality channel should buy up all the international versions of Idol and rebroadcast them.

Len said...

BTW, it occurred to me that it's too bad that Anthony and David Archuleta are both male, or they could be interbred to form a race of adorable teacup-size Idols...

Poster Girl said...

Oh, different "Prayer," I think--Anthony did the Celine Dion/Andrea Bocelli one, solo...I think Måns's was originally done by a Danish singer I've now forgotten the name of.

I'd definitely watch some of those Australian shows! And goodness, can you imagine--I'm not sure the Idol shows could handle that much...I don't know what, but I think you'd have the ultimate Idol-winning machine then! Plus, I wouldn't say no to having my own teacup-size Idol.

Rick said...

He's not a bad actor either, pretending to be seriously attracted to the 'teacher'. Nice one!

(I forgot how much I loved this song - thanks for reminding me)

Len said...

How right you are, PPG, that would be Jakob Sveistrup from Denmark, ESC entrant from 2005.

Poster Girl said...

Oh, yes! And there's never a bad time for some "The Look" appreciation, either--glad I could bring it up!

That's it! Thank you, Len.
