I recorded this week’s “The Day After” episode just a couple hours after flying six hours from New York to Los Angeles in a coach middle seat; my cohost, The Voice Season 9 finalist Jeffery Austin, was stoned; and The Voice Battle Rounds were pretty damn boring this week (and Rizzi Myers went home, grrrr), so please forgive us if this week’s podcast isn’t our peppiest.
However, there are moments, as my Monster Energy drink kicks in, when things do get lively. Along with our breakdown of this week’s American Idol, RuPaul’s Drag Race, and The Voice, we of course discuss a bunch of other random stuff, including…
….drunk Beatles karaoke, SPF 100 sunscreen, So You Think You Can Dance, 90-Day Fiancé, the proper pronunciation of the word “GIF,” the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Sasha Velour, Haley Reinhart, Phillip Phillips, Laganja Estranja, Scarlet Envy’s attractiveness out of drag, the brilliance of Adam Lambert’s sophomore album Trespassing, the brilliance of Adam Lambert in general, the brilliance of Uché, Katy Perry’s career-derailing SNL debacle, the quickly debunked myth that I favor any and all gay reality TV contests, the ranked hotness of all three Jonas Brothers, Rita Ora aka the Queen of the Side-Gigs, Logan Johnson’s Instagram, Stevie Nicks’s Instagram, getting verified on Instagram, the Draglympics (the only sports I will watch tbh), shablamming, fanography, Elvis Presley’s “’68 Comeback” TV special, the ickiness of covering Michael Jackson songs on talent shows, the ickiness of Meghan Trainor, Jeffery’s bizarre dislike of P!nk, the stalker subtext of Adele’s “Hello,” Regina Love, Charlie Puth’s weird eyebrow, Emily Luther, Bumble, the shared fashion sense of Bumbly and Monet X Change, Adam Levine’s terrible fashion sense, Songland, the endangered redhead species, and the new Cross-Battles coming up on The Voice.
Please join us in the Lay’s Recording Lounge and have a listen to our conversation, to our snazzy theme song by our American Idol pals Brandon Rogers and Blake Lewis, and to the absolutely maddening sound of Jeffery cracking his knuckles. (MAKE. IT. STOP.) And if you prefer the written word, check out my Voice, Idol, and Drag Race articles on Yahoo Entertainment here.
