As I fast-forwarded through the last episode of American Idol hoping to get to the pay-off portion of the show, I immediately hit the play button when I thought I saw “The Spirit of Troy,” the University of Southern California marching band.
As the playback resumed normal speed I was happy to see that it was not only the band, but also the USC “Song Girls” (that would be cheerleaders at ordinary schools) joining the American Idol festivities. They were there to accompany Reynaldo Lapuz as he reprised “I Am Your Brother,”one of the most painful auditions in American Idol history.
What a great reminder that football season will be here before you know it!
(Is it just me, or did Randy Jackson’s outfit look like a bit like something Captain Kangaroo would wear?)
