It’s Hazy, Hot, and Humid in Jacksonville.

We're now into week 3 of auditions and we kick it off in Jacksonville Florida. The home of high humidity and very large gators. It was a good start in Florida. It must be all the humidity that warms the voices up. Or maybe it's the drunken non-making out that Paula did with Kara. Either way, it started out very nicely.

Naturally, the more it went on, the worse it got. I don't know, with the way the show started, I had some high hopes for Florida. I wasn't expecting everyone to rock, but I was expecting a little better than what they had. They did make it up in the end, and though I didn't agree with all the choices they made today, there were some really good singers.

On a side note, thank you American Idol. Finally, a show that didn't have a bleeding heart story. It was a nice release from the mundane of the normalcy's of the show. Let's see how they do in Salt Lake City tomorrow.

The Grammies confirmed what Dr.Funkenberry.com readers already knew before anyone; Kanye West, T.I., and Sir Paul McCartney are performing at the Grammies. It was posted here first.

With a cherry on top, we also confirmed here that Jay Z and Justin Timberlake would be performing as well, which the Grammies a day later confirmed. 

A big shout out to Rolling Stone, Huffington Post, NME.com, and the fan boards for supporting ignoring the story.  Guess we need to get into another argument with Courtney Love for news. ;-)

I don't think so and also hope the site will not be ignored too much longer.  I remember something and I am passing it on to you; the longer the struggle, the sweeter the success.-Dr.FB
