He tells New York’s Q104.3 FM, “It’s really sort of disappointing to me that he’s gone and done that, for whatever reason – a lot of it having to do with (the fact that) I just know the guy and the other guys in the band are bummed out and they’ve had a really rocky road for a while. And then just because American Idol is what it is, so it’s hard for me to put the thing together.”

CM: Back to Idol, I’m curious what you think about the new judges.

DD: I’m a big believer that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it, and that’s what they started doing with the fourth judge, and then taking out Paula (Abdul). I think the three originals will always be the best but it will be exciting with J-Lo and Steven Tyler to see who’s gonna take what position.

Just Touched Down in LondonTown!

Read a new blog from Season 2 Idol, Trenyce at her website. She is currently performing in a Michael Jackson tribute show in London’s West End.

London has been such a wonderful experience so far. One cannot miss the seemingly drawn buildings, and charismatic architecture that steps right out of a good 40’s film starring your favorite actors. London has had such an impression on me. The fashion…is….How do I describe it? Other than…perfectly risky! Layers…colors….boldness…subtlety…striking…understated…all at once! I was overwhelmed by shopping on Oxford…just because it is an on-going row of every…possible…shop I love!!! The only thing missing is Victoria’s Secret…which completely stunned me! However, going inside of TopShop made up for it! I LOOOOOVE that store! Floors and floors of style! Ok, I’m getting chills!
