"American Idol" is in Orlando with guest judge Kristin Chenoweth, who Ryan tells us "is a really big deal." I hope Simon tells someone they're "too Broadway." I've liked Kristen ever since her turn as the dynamic press secretary in "West Wing" (my favorite TV drama).

Start off with some guy in a cape with glitter and coins or something glued to the right side of his face. Theo tells Simon his dream is to run some salons, singing "Heartbreaker." He's loud but talentless, shouts the song. Kara tries to actually give him some real criticism about the tone of his voice, and how he doesn't need to wear all that crazy stuff.

Kristin seems slightly stunned by Theo; she'll get used to it, quick. He's actually pretty polite to Ryan afterwards.

Any positive feelings for Theo, or just a waste of time? Click on 'add a comment' at the bottom of this post
