My stance on American Idol is, to quote Michael Ian Black:
Proudly Not Watching American Idol since 2002
I will, however, DVR American Idol to see Neil Patrick Harris guest judge! Since I have been known to say that I would be entertained by him reading directions from a cake box, I figured I could sit through some crappy singers and Simon snark to see The Emperor of Awesome.
Of course he did not disappoint, NPH NEVER disappoints – let’s just make that clear (he was even sharp and witty in his interview about his judging gig.) From his opening assertion that “If I can make 2 or 3 dozen people cry I’ll feel like I’ve done my job,” to greeting the girl in the sequined dress with “Hello Sparkle!” he was his usual, charming, funny, flawless self. He even looks dapper in a sweater vest and a tie for godssakes!
I must echo the girl who got voted through because of him:
Thank god for Neil Patrick Harris
