Round of 6 - November 6

Gordon: This is Gordon Pepper, and if you were here last week, you got to hear 9 really bad performances.
Jason: Gordon...you sure I have to do this again?
Gordon: Did you mention us on WPLJ yet?
Jason: Nope.
Gordon: Then yes, you have to do this again
Don: There's more bad performances this week, isn't there?
Gordon: I would pretty much guarantee it, as we chat with our friends Jason Block and Don Harpwood.
Jason: Look, this will drive a person to escape the country.
Gordon: So if Don sees this, will it drive him to come to the US?
Don: ...
Jason: Of course...
Don: ...It would likely make me want to throw my TV out the window.
Gordon: This week, we will be throwing 3 singers proverbially out the window, as three of them will be eliminated. Any thoughts?
Jason: Yes. Kim Alexis is gone, Gotti is gone, and Copon is gone.
Gordon: I'm going to go with Myrrrrka, Kim Alexis and Larry Holmes. What did you think about Bai Ling?
Jason: She was awful, but train wreck awful :)
Gordon: Would you like to see Bai Ling again with less clothing?
Jason: Wouldn't everybody?
Gordon: So Don - what women would you like to see scantily clad in Canada?
Don: Plenty of 'em.
Gordon: Morgan Fairchild?
Don: Not her, to be honest.
Gordon: Bai Ling?
Don: Could I see a pic of her first? Please? (Gets shown a pic) Yeah.
Gordon: So do you think the singing will be better this week?
Jason: Nope.
Don: Doubt it.
Gordon: Will Ahmet Zappa make sense this week?
Don: I'm not holding my breath.
Gordon: And here we go, starting with last week's recap. We get 3 singers leaving before they can sing a note, so we will be spared from 3 performances. Yay. In addition, ANT will be the guest judge. He says that he's going to say what you are thinking. You convinced about that?
Don: Only if he says they all suck.
Gordon: Ahmet says that maybe their favorite will be the best singer - or will be the best train wreck. We have over 300,000 votes. Ahmet says that he will call out names. If your name gets called, you get to sing.
Jason: The judges and coaches are still here from last week. And Peter
Escovedo is back too.
Gordon: Who is the first singer, Jay?
Jason: The first singer is Michael Copon....boo!
Gordon: And Jay is already 0 for 1.
Jason: ;P
Gordon: As for Michael, last week, he was pretty...uh....okay. He certainly wasn't bottom three, so it's not bad.
Jason: He blew.
Gordon: They all blew. He blew less. Michael says that this week, he will
take care of business.
Jason: He is singing American Woman by the Guess Who. The song, I ironically missed on a car on, on an MTV game show called Turn It Up.
Gordon: Don't you mean the Guess What? As in Guess What Key he will be singing in?
Jason: True...Oh dear, he is in a leather shirt and pants.
Gordon: He is at least much improved over last week
Jason: Much.
Don: How much?
Jason: Very much. He can carry a tune.
Don: Wow.
Jason: This is really surprising.
Gordon: He's not perfect though. Blanking out on the lyrics in the middle of the song isn't too good. But to make it up, he'll take off his shirt for you. Ahmet - 'He showed you his boobies tonight!'
Jason: Hottie alert! Ant will like it. The judges say to have less antics and more focus. ANT says that he liked him with his shirt open...
Don: Not surprising that he'd say that.
Gordon: ...and that he could have any man or woman that he wanted. Who's the next singer?
Jason: Morgan Fairchild!
Gordon: Definitely one of the top 6 singers, if you ask me.
Jason: Yup. She had class and charisma.
Don: Think she'll have improved as much?
Gordon: I certainly hope so.
Jason: She is singing I Will Survive by Gloria Gaynor.
Gordon: 'I Will Survive'. In Morgan's words, 'I'm a tenacious bitch.' Not a good start for Morgan, who mangles the opening lyrics.
Don: Ouch.
Jason: Not as good as Michael this week.
Gordon: She continues her singing/speaking style. The problem is that it worked on last week's song - but it doesn't work on this one.
Jason: I agree with you totally on this one.
Gordon: And she sounded like a billy goat on that last note. Morgan says that she wants to redo the song. Please no.
Jason: Ack.
Gordon: Meanwhile ANT says that she brought it. I thought ANT was going to be an honest judge.
Don: There goes that idea...
Gordon: Who's Next?
Jason: #3 on the dock is....Antonio Sabato Jr. Last week, he was
horrible...he mangled "Every Breath You Take". This week, his song is 'I Want You to Want Me' by Cheap Trick.
Don: Unless he's improved, if he wants someone to want him, he may want to consider not singing.
Jason: His shirt is totally off...boobie alert.
Gordon: Booby is right - but it's more because of his voice. BOOBY!
Jason: He is horrible. The worst so far tonight. This is painful.
Gordon: Well we now know why he took off his shirt - to hopefully get the audience away from the fact that he can't remember the lyrics or get anything in pitch
Jason: This is bad.
Don: That might work with the ladies, and maybe ANT.
Gordon: The judges are holding ANT back. Is it just me or is ANT starting to look like a smaller Richard Simmons?
Jason: Yup.
Gordon: Judge Rachel thought that Antonio did a wonderful, wonderful job. Huh?
Don: LIAR!
Jason: I would love the crack she is smoking.
Gordon: I really need to hear some Bai Ling
Jason: I don't.
Gordon: Who's singer #4?
Jason: Singer #4---Carmine Gotti Agnello
Gordon: Apparently, he threatened enough people to vote for him
Don: lol
Jason: You notice they are going for the physically beautiful.
Gordon: I do - and that does not bode well for Joey Pants or Larry Holmes.
Jason: He is going to do "Drop It Like It's Hot" by Snoop Dogg and Pharrell.
Gordon: Drop the singing like it's hot, apparently - since that's an all rap and no singing song.
Jason: The music comes on, and again the shirt comes off.
Don: Are the guys trying to impress ANT or something?
Gordon: It's the new show called Win A Date with ANT!
Jason: And again he mangles the rap horribly.
Gordon: Rapping? That's what he was doing? I thought he did some great polka.
Jason: LOL
Don: Heh.
Jason: This was bad...
Gordon: I'll say this - for the people who know the song, it was bad, but the people who don't know any better will like it.
Jason: True.
Gordon: And a note to Carmine - please put the shirt back on.
Jason: Please.
Gordon: Ahmet - 'Apparently, the singing means nothing as long as you can show the people your stomach'.
Jason: Sounds pretty accurate
Gordon: Can the women do that? I want to see one of the ladies sing 'Bounce Your Boobies'
Jason: I love 'BOUNCE YOUR BOOBIES'! The song, by the way, was performed by Rusty Warren
Don: So, what's next?
Gordon: Before we hear the next singer, Ahmet tells us that he will be
announcing two of the singers who will not be performing.
Jason: 2 of the celebrities who will NOT SING are...Kim Alexis. Which I
picked...:)
Gordon: Don't forget that you also picked Michael Copon and the littlest
Gotti.
Jason: Shut Up.
Gordon; =)
Jason: The second person is...Myrka Dellanos.
Gordon: Awwwwwww. And I'm 2 for 2.
Jason: Shut up.
Gordon: =)
Jason: Surprising.
Don: And who does that leave?
Gordon: The good news is that as the tone tone deaf females are leaving, we will either hear two of the following three people perform - Joey Pants, Bai Ling or Larry Holmes. Unfortunately, that's also the bad news.
Jason: Singer #5...is Larry Holmes.
Gordon: Make that very bad news. The voters, apparently, are also punch drunk. What song are we going to be tortured with tonight, Jason?
Jason: He is going to do "Let's Get It On"
Gordon: I guess that refers to the ear plugs that will be getting it on in my ears
Don: LOL
Jason: Oh. My. God.
Gordon: Let's Turn It Off
Jason: (hoooowwwwwwwwwwwl)
Gordon: Let's Change the Channel
Don: Another ear-bleeding performance, eh?
Jason: This is really bad.
Gordon: Well, Larry carried part of a tune for at least 40% of the song, so he's improving.
Jason: This is really, really bad.
Gordon: Of course, he only carried the right lyrics for only 35% of the song, so that needs some work.
Jason: Yikes.
Gordon: While we are in the commercial break, I bet I can tell you who the last singer is going to be, Jason
Jason: Joey Pants. They are not going to have 2 train wrecks.
Gordon: WRONG
Jason: Huh?
Gordon: They just promoed the third show during the commercial break, and they said that only 6 singers are left. Then they proceeded to show us..BAI LING!
Don: A spoiler? Geez...
Gordon: Way to ruin the suspense of your own show, VH1.
Jason: I was in the bathroom trying to recover from that last performance.
Gordon: VH1 can't do anything right with the show - they may as well run the spoiler promo during the show as well. So Jason, who's the last performer of the night?
Jason: The last performer of the night is....BAI LING!
Gordon: Really? I'm shocked. SHOCKED!
Jason: The VH1 people suck. So Kim Alexis, Myrka Dellanos and Joe Pantoliano are gone.
Gordon: You ready for another Bai Ling performance?
Jason: God help me, no. She is singing 'Call Me' by Blondie.
Gordon: Let's see what skimpy outfit she wears this time
Jason: Her tattoos are showing. Too bad her talent isn't.
Gordon: She has a nice orange mesh suit with a yellow bra. She's wearing a gold and orange sparkly thing on her head. I'm not going to comment on the singing, because I don't care. I'm too mesmerized by the outfit.
Jason: You suck, Gordon.
Gordon: You see that nice tattoo on her midriff?
Jason: I hate tattoos on women.
Gordon: She can call me
Jason: I have Caller ID.
Gordon: Tony is proud of Bai and her vapid talent. 'With you, less is more'. I think he means the clothing.
Don: lol
Gordon: So - next week - who leaves?
Jason: Larry and Bai.
Gordon: Seems petty evident this time, doesn't it?
Jason: Yep.
Gordon: We get the recaps of the singers and a reminder to go to vh1.com to vote. And with that, we have survived episode 2. Any final thoughts?
Jason: You suck and the voters suck.
Gordon: Thank you Jason. And Don?
Don: Those who survive had better improve next time. And I expect to hear less of shirts coming off next time.
Gordon: Unless they are women?
Don: Correct.
Gordon: There you go. For everyone, this is Gordon Pepper, reminding you to spread the love - and not the bad vocal chords.
