American Idol 2016: Jenn Blosil’s Bedazzled Brows, MacKenzie Bourg’s Dazzling “Roses”

american-idol-2016-jenn-blosil-eyebrows-bedazzledFirst things first, no one addressed Jenn Blosil’s eyebrows. And I’m not okay with that.


Can we please not make bedazzled eyebrows a thing? I was so distracted!

Plus, one of them was clearly falling off and all I could think about were those rhinestone shirts I bought in the early ’00s where one rhinestone was always rebelling.

Then I was just mad. I couldn’t even tell you what song she sang if you paid me.

My Pick of the Night: Mackenzie Bourg

A couple weeks back I talked about how much I LOVED that original song he sang, “Roses,” and he sang it again!

It was even better this time around.

Shawn Parr and I talked with American Idol mentor Scott Borchetta last night on Nash Nights Live. I told him I’m picking Mackenzie to win it. Then Scott dropped this little factoid on us: Mackenzie was on NBC’s The Voice!

Weird. Still trying to decide how I feel about that.

Up-Tempo Songs, Stat!

Well, that was a whole lot of ballads. I have to watch this show after we get off-air at midnight, so help a homie out and get some up-tempo songs going!! #Kthxbye
