Kurt’s Blog: Celebratin’ “Jump” & Rankin’ the Idol Judges

 RIP Chris Kelly

Loved Kriss Kross as a kid…”Jump” was one of the first rap songs I remembered being able to blare at top volume without worrying about my mom & dad hearing all sorts of swears.

(I was able to do this with Onyx’ “Slam” as well, but only because my parents couldn’t decipher any of they lyrics).

Did I wear the baseball jerseys backwards? Yes…but only once. I thought everyone would be doing it back in 8th grade…I got to school, and I was the only one. Ridicule followed.

2 Random Lists I Stumbled Across

FHM magazine (the British version) released their “100 Sexiest Woman in the World”…here’s the Top 10.

1. Mila Kunis

 European Premiere of  'Oz the Great and Powerful'

2. Rihanna

3. Helen Flanagan

4. Michelle Keegan

5. Kelly Brook

6. Kaley Cuoco

21st Annual 'A Night at Sardi's' - Arrivals

7. Pixie Lott

8. Kate Upton

9. Cheryl Cole

10. Georgia Salpa

Taylor Swift came in at #12, Katy Perry is #16, and since the British still think it’s 2009, Megan Fox was #17.

Top 10 American Idol Judges

There was also a list ranking the Top 10 American Idol Judges of All-Time. This list is ridiculous…I will re-rank them…

Their List

1. Keith Urban

2. Simon Cowell

3. Mariah Carey

4. Jennifer Lopez

Los Angeles Premiere of 'The Incredible Burt Wonderstone' held at TCL Chinese Theatre5. Nicki Minaj

6. Ellen DeGeneres

7. Steven Tyler

8. Paula Abdul

9. Randy Jackson

10. Kara DioGuardi





Here’s how my list would work…

1. Simon Cowell – He IS American Idol'Britain's Got Talent' Press launch

2. Paula Abdul – No one offered more fun than Paula

3. Randy Jackson – He’s been there forever, he deserves more respect!

4. Steven Tyler

5. Keith Urban

6. Ellen DeGeneres

7. Nicki Minaj

8. Jennifer Lopez

9. Mariah Carey

10. Kara DioGuardi

The disdain for Kara is well-warranted…she never offered any sort of usable criticism. Smokey Robinson, Lionel Richie, and even Paul Anka did better as guest judges than Kara did as a full-time judge!


The Worst Scene in Cinema History?

Thank you Catwoman.
