Haters have dismissed "American Idol" as nothing more than glorified karaoke...which makes it somewhat ironic that several Idols have happily signed on to sing along to words on a video screen, karaoke-style, on VH1/My Network TV's musical game show "Don't Forget The Lyrics." But since they're competing for charity, Season 4's Bo Bice, Season 5's Elliott Yamin, Season 6's Blake Lewis, and Season 9's Alex Lambert have all willingly swallowed their pride and good-naturedly taped "DFTL" episodes, which start airing on My Network TV next week.
Taylor has a little trouble nailing MJ's dog-whistle-shrill falsetto, but I must admit I'm impressed with his ability to handle the almighty octaves of Steve Perry. So I'll go karaoke-ing with Taylor any time, haters be damned.
