"We're leavin' on that midnight train..."

I’m starting to get really nervous now and I don’t know why…

9:30 We’re back…Video of Gladys Knight’s Pips auditions…It’s Jack Black, Ben Stiller and Robert Downey Jr…Jack Black is totally into it, but Stiller’s lost and Downey Jr.’s being all slick…Why would we let Stiller back into this show after that whole bleeping debacle?…This, of course, is a promo for their new movie, “Tropic Thunder.” Could we stop pimping movies on this show?…You have to admit this is a nice video trick…Downey Jr. disappears…Black goes to find him, leaving Stiller alone…Black comes back out with his pants down…Now Downey Jr. returns….Huh?…You can download that video with the proceeds going to charity, “at their request,” Ryan says…He didn’t plug the movie at all. NICE!…

9:34 Carrie sings “Last Name”…What is the deal with that weird thing she’s got tied to her wrists? Was she looking for some kind of wings? And how short is that dress? It’s a good thing she doesn’t move around a lot when she sings--which again makes those weird wings pointless…Paula’s still in the audience. Did she chicken out on us or are we still going to get a taped performance?…Ashley Tisdale in the house…I really like that song, but did it seem a little shrill to anyone else?…Break…
