What a nutty night full of guest appearances and drama.
R&B legend Stevie Wonder sang “Happy Birthday” to Steven Tyler…how awesome is that!
Hulk Hogan dropped by to tell self-professed “Hulkamaniac” James Durban he was SAFE. Staying true to form, Hogan ripped off his shirt (Ryan gave it to James). Then the Hulkster fake punches Ryan Seacrest in the face (LMAO) and sent him flying into the audience. Hysterical!
Special musical guest Sugarland performed their new song “Stuck Like Glue” and a svelte Jennifer Hudson dropped by to launch her new single “Where You At?”
Crazy bottom three this week:
Casey Abrams received the lowest number of votes. Casey started to sing for his life and was stopped by Randy Jackson. The judges used their save. Everybody went nuts, including a stunned Casey. It was insane in the membrane.
Final shocker: Ryan tells us ALL 11 finalists will go on tour, not just the top ten. BUT…….two people will go home next Thursday night. People better “bring it”.
The Appalachian Brewing Company will be opening up a fourth location in Collegeville at 50 Third Avenue. The space was formerly Hemingway’s. The new pub will be opening in April or May.
Appalachian Brewing Company is doing some remodeling before opening which will include a new bar, renovated kitchen and cooler. They will employ 30 full-time and part-time people.
According to a company spokesperson, Appalachian Brewing Company beer is already in our market and should be familiar to Collegeville-area residents. The company opened its original Harrisburg location in 1997. Two other locations are in Camp Hill and Gettysburg.
Last night’s performances indicated the depth of talent on this season of American Idol. Usually at this point in the competition there are still a few people who really do not deserve to be there. We all have our favorites and some people are definitely more talented than others; but this is the first year with eleven contestants remaining that I will be sad to see anyone go home.
James Durbin continues to amaze me along with Jacob Lusk and Pia Toscano. Naima Adedapo was vastly improved this week. Paul McDonald delivered a solid performance and I was glad to see him break out the guitar. Scotty was his usual charming self. So far today, the American Idol “Who was the Best?” poll ranks the contestants in this order: James Durbin, Scotty McCreary, Jacob Lusk, Pia Toscano and Thia Megia in the top five with 22, 936 people voting. Stefano and Haley have the lowest scores.
Gordon Ramsey was in the audience last night and greatly annoyed me when he turned his nose up at Mrs. Langone’s penne. What a SNOT! He wouldn’t even try it. Not cool Gordon.
If the poll is any indicator of the voting, Stefano and Haley will definitely be in the bottom three with a toss-up between Lauren and Naima.
I attended this Council meeting and recall the incident in question. At the time, I thought this was going to end up in a lawsuit. Frivolous lawsuits are why people have no interest in running for public office and why people are not interested in municipal government. Over the years I have been asked to run for School Board and Borough Council. As much as I would like to serve this community, the dirty politics in our town and the propensity to sue people will make me say NO every time.
For whatever reason, the Coventry Mall Borders Express store is not listed on the Pennsylvania store closing list. However, after walking around Coventry Mall this morning, the Borders Express store has a final closing sale sign in the window. It says this location only, which I thought was rather odd since Borders is closing hundreds of stores nationwide.
So there is your alert Pottstown area shoppers. Borders Express at Coventry mall is closing. I believe the sign said up to 75% off. If you want to get some cheap books, you better head over soon! It will not be open much longer.
