Last night after the Super Bowl, Fox aired an episode of that "Glee" show because, I'm guessing, the network has had a hard time converting its prototypical Sunday night football-watching demographic over to a weekly TV series in which the cast regularly breaks out in song and dance.
Which is funny because I was just joking the other day that "Real Housewives of Atlanta" probably forced a lot of dudes in Atlanta out of the closet this season, what with it's Sunday night scheduling conflict with professional football and all. Not to say that a man's sexuality can be determined by something as simple as his DVR playlist. And even if that were true, it would be a serious toss-up between that flaming hot-mess of a reality show, "RHOA," and the NFL's weekly humpfest of swollen, ass-grabbers chasing behind each other in sweaty tights and shoulder pads.
But yeah, since "RHOA" was on pause last night (the season-ending reunion show airs next Sunday, so set your DVR early, yo), Fox went for the trifecta with a little pigskin, a lotta "Glee," and a taste of some Kandi Koated Nights. Indeed, "RHOA" cast mate Kandi Burruss got some major play on "Glee" when the show's cast performed "Bills, Bills, Bills," the chart-topping, Grammy-nominated 1999 hit she penned with Kevin "She'kspere" Briggs for Beyoncé's former group Destiny's Child.
Here's what she had to say about the "Glee" performance in a statement released by her publicist:
Actually, it went something like this:
"I was smiling from the inside out watching it. I loved it! Anytime someone performs a song that I helped create it makes me really proud. Glee did a great job on their vocal arrangements. I really liked how the background singers were singing all the instrumental parts except for one drum sound. That was really hot!"
In other words: CH-CHING BITCHES!!!
Peep the original Destiny's Child video for "Bills, Bills, Bills" below. And I don't know but I think the "Glee" boys choir may have bested Lady Bey and them — not that I be watching musicals or nothing like that. What'chu think?
Beck and Alabama Shakes...that's about it. I'm sure there's an unknown or two I would…
Well, this years Music Midtown sucks!
I'm pretty sure he was 19.
3 people apparently love handing over an extra 40% in fees for nothing in return…
Dang. I thought they would name some actual headliners.
Forgot to mention that Iggy did a stellar show @ the Agora in the spring…
