Paula Abdul's Brittany Impression on "Idol"

I'm not sure what I've just witnessed. It was supposed to be a Paula Abdul performance on "American Idol". Instead, there was a tutu and Paula Abdul doing a damn near spot on Brit impression. I know she's a judge and so they pretty much had to do it, but you have to give it up to the shamelessness of commercialism. On a show where so much emphasis is put on singing ability, their judge didn't bother to belt out one live note.

Clearly P spilled the beans about being a pill popper to Ladies Home Journal just so everyone would be impressed by the fact that she had her wig on straight and managed not to fall on her face as she made her way down the Seacrest Stairway of Death tonight. It didn't help matters that Gwen and the rest of No Doubt came out after the commercial break and owned it. True, her vocals didn't sound that great but it was an actual live performance and Gwen made up for vocal ho-humnity in other ways, like pushups. Seriously. And they weren't even the girly kind. Plus Adrian the drummer was also wearing a tutu this evening. He did that better than Paula too.
