Despite Simon’s playful poking at Ryan Seacrest’s sexuality on Tuesday, the only one that was outed on last night’s American Idol was 28-year-old contestant Brandon Rogers. Sharing his Bottom Three shame were Phil Stacey and Sanjaya Malakar, but it was line-flubber Rogers that was sent packing. Don’t worry about Brandon, though, because according to his Idol Fast Facts, he still intends on following his dreams—if he can remember them under pressure, that is.
Anyway, all assertions aside, the queerest thing that happened on Idol last night was the Ford Music Video that showcased the Top 12 resurrecting Modest Mouse’s 2004 hit "Float On," to which they marched like zombies through the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s, until they found their way to some Ford convertibles. Hmm, it makes one wonder what lead singer Isaac Brock thought of the raping of his song.
