Video Response to Charo Post

When I heard Charo's strong accent while singing in English, the first thought that ran through my head was "Ken Lee". For those of you who don't follow Bulgarian Idol----that's right, the Bulgarian version of American Idol-----this is part of what you have missed. You should really watch up through at least t=50 or so; you don't want to miss "tulibu dibu douchoo". By the way what do you make of the uncanny resemblance of the adjudicating panel to their American counterparts?

The singer did not make it through to the next round, but was invited back to sing on the season closer, and she has become famous throughout Bulgaria.

The various 'Idol' franchises round the world, from Bulgaria to Malaysia have proved that no country has a monopoly on amazing talent or inconceivable self-delusion.

Oh. My. God. That's my new favorite thing ever, "Ken Lee." Plus, of course, the subtitles. Oh, and the Paula Abdul look-alike, a truly scary proposition.

I'm going to try this on George, day after valentines, after all, right? Ken Lee .... Of course the joke would be lost as George, though an expert in, uh, (name the rock field) couldn't pick Mariah Carey out of a room filled with Mariah Carey posters.

Was that Mariah Carey singing the song in the middle of the video? Who knew?

One of my more dubious accomplishments. Please keep this on the down-low.
