The American Idol ‘What Would Simon Say’ contest: We have this week’s winner

Last week, I asked you to participate in our “What Would Simon Say” contest by attempting to offer some “American Idol” criticism in the same biting style as departed judge Simon Cowell.

The number of entries was not exactly overwhelming. I suspect that in this blog, a “What Would Sawyer Say if He Were an ‘American Idol’ Judge?” contest might garner a stronger response. But I digress.

After perusing the comments, I have determined that our winner is ... jameon, who came through with this nasty little gem of a comment:

“Haley, your voice sounded like a demented yodeling cow in the ‘Sound of Music’ who lost its way in the hills, which were no longer alive by the time you finished wrecking a perfectly good song.”

I am not sure whether jameon meant to mimic Cowell or whether he/she was just making an observation. Either way, that comment stood out from the rest.

We’ll play again this week; another invitation for entries will be posted on Wednesday. (Read the contest rules and regs here , but only if you’re terribly bored at work or get a freakish kick out of legalese). Some good news: Paul McDonald is still alive in the “Idol” competition, so that means at least one contestant should be capable of sparking some snarky Simon-style commentary.
