Regular readers of Reality Rocks are well aware that I was (and am) a massive fan of "The X Factor's" Lyric 145, and that I was none too thrilled with their ridiculous 12th-place elimination last week. So when I was invited to be a guest on "The X Factor's" live online preshow this past Wednesday, I was totally representin', rocking an eyepatch in protest and in honor of frontwoman Lyric Da Queen. But little did I know that I was about to be upstaged on the preshow by a special secret guest: Lyric Da Queen herself!
Yes, there I was, in the middle of discussing the greatness of Lyric 145 like some junior-high-schooler gushing about One Direction, when out of nowhere, Lyric showed up--and since I was wearing my eyepatch, I didn't see her until she was right in front of me. And once the Queen got into my one uncovered eye's line of vision, I pretty much flipped out like a junior-high-schooler meeting Harry Styles.
I'd almost be embarrassed by my arm-flapping, squeeing reaction, but it was a cute and very genuine moment. Really, I think the only thing I am embarrassed about is the fact that Lyric's amazing 3D eyepatch, which was impressively embellished with Glambert-worthy metal spikes, completely put my Party City pirate prop to shame.
