I opted to skip it last night as I had NO interest in any of the acts. I watched Smackdown in stead. Yes, Smackdown. I was entertained, too. My FIANCEE even watched it with me, and the only unkind word she had was during the catfight: "Oh, THIS is intelligent." I love her. ;-) Anyone watch Hit Me last night? Did I miss anything good? I went to their website and see that PM Dawn won. Sorry I missed it. Juice looks haggard, too.
PM Dawn's version of "Blurry" was fantastic. Took a very generic rocker and really made something of it. Not that I'm surprised, since they've done great things with rock songs in the past (their version of "Norwegian Wood" is the best Beatle remake ever. EVER!).
