FCC Won’t Probe ‘American Idol’
May 13, 2005 – Conan O’Brien joked during his Late Night monologue on Thursday night, “It was reported today that the FCC is unlikely to investigate allegations that Paula Abdul had sex with an ‘American Idol’ contestant. They’re not going to investigate, yeah. A spokesperson for the FCC said, ‘Being Paula Abdul is punishment enough’.”
Anthony Federov Voted Off ‘American Idol’
May 11, 2005 – Anthony Federov was the only performer to get low marks from the judges for both songs on Tuesday’s ‘American Idol’. The Idols were asked to sing one tune out of Nashville and one from Philadelphia, specifically the music of Gamble and Huff. The performances didn’t impress the voters either, as Federov was voted off the show Wednesday night. Controversy erupted though when the dial-in phone number for Carrie Underwood was displayed on the closed-captioning for all the contestants, possibly aiding her survival. The correct numbers, however, were shown with on-screen graphics and announced by Seacrest. A statement issued Wednesday by Fox read, “the producers and network apologize to our hearing-impaired viewers for any confusion, and the situation was immediately corrected for our tape-delayed West Coast broadcast.” When Federov closed the show, Underwood was repeatedly shown crying and could be seen mouthing to Federov: “I love you.”

Yahoo! has announced its ‘Top 2004 Searches’, and Britney Spears is almost at the top of every list. She has her name in almost every category, which no other artists have. She placed #4 on the ‘Top 10 Search Terms’ (right behind American Idol, Paris Hilton, and Jessica Simpson). Britney placed #2 on the ‘Top Music Searches’ (right behind Jessica Simpson, and ahead of Christina Aguilera who is at #7). She placed #3 on the ‘Top Music Lyrics’ Searches (behind Usher and Eminem). Britney was also announced the ‘Top Mover’ of September, when the most searched for mover was “Britney Spears Wedding”. On top of all this, Britney also has her own category of searches (the only artist that has their own category), which Yahoo! titled “Top Britney Spears Searches”.
98 Degrees star Jeff Timmons is crisscrossing the country with Jim Brickman and Friends, performing a holiday concert through the month of December. They landed in San Jose Sunday, November 28. Bottom line, I loved finally seeing him live (I missed the last 98 Degrees tour), and he was the best thing about the show (the French-cuff lavender shirt and black velvet pants he sported at the start of Act 2 were practically worth the price of admission). His voice was in fine form and demonstrated a gravity and resonance absent from the other vocalists. The good is it’s all new material that you haven’t heard before; the bad is there none of his solo album (‘Whisper That Way’) on the program.
