For 12 seasons we’ve watched everyone from Simon Cowell and Paula Abdul to Ellen DeGeneres, Jennifer Lopez, and a starved mule dressed up as Jimmy Buffett named Steven Tyler judge American Idol. None of these people are gay men. Call me a radical, but maybe a gay male judge is just what the show needs.
In this edition of Weeklings!, I revisit all 12 seasons of Idol and discover what the show would’ve been like if an opinionated gay man criticized the competing singers. Here’s a hint: It’d be way more exciting than Randy Jackson’s fist-pumps with Keith Urban.
