“Burnell, you made me cry!” *Randy Jackson voice* Yo for me, dawg, for me, Burnell Taylor’s audition in Baton Rouge last night, THIS is the most interesting moment of Mimi on Idol so far!

American Idol, Season 12, Episode 1 recap. (Lainey: Dean thinks the Mimi-Minaj drama is a fraud. I, as you know, think it’s legit. But I suck at recaps, and Dean’s more advanced at Mimi knowledge than I am. So here’s the first installment of what’s becoming the best show in the history of television. Full Story
